    3. Hi, I don’t know much as this list is about Essex UK not Essex County. But Rebecca Nurse was born Rebecca Towne and she did have daughter called Mary Nurse 1653-1749.

    3. Hi. Does anyone have any information on Harriet Hart the witch of Snoreham village? What information I do have was found on the Dead Families website. I believe she may be a sister of my husbands 3 x great grandfather William Firbank who was born in Latchingdon c. 1818. Thanks, Kate.

    1. [ENG-ESSEX-WITCHES] Bertram Alan WEARING
    2. Mike Wearing
    3. I am trying to trace Bertram Alan WEARING, son of Jane WEARING and unknown, who was born 26 February 1902 at Enstone Oxfordshire. He possibly lived in the Ipswich area of Suffolk. Hence my request for help to the Suffolk list. Bertram's mother Jane was a sister to my paternal grandfather. This is what I know about Bertram: 1911 Census lists Bertram and his mother Jane staying with Bertram's grandparents Thomas and Sally WEARING in Enstone Oxfordshire. Bertram was a seaman in the Royal Navy during WW1, for there is a medal card for him. Bertram married Sylvia M. M. KEITH in 1928 in Malta. The marriage was recorded in the Army Chaplins Register of Marriages in Malta. Sylvia arrived in the UK with daughter Barbara, 2 years old, in April 1932 aboard the Barabool coming out of Sydney, Australia. They were going to Duke Street, Hintlesham, Suffolk, near Ipswich. (I have no proof that this is the Sylvia that Bertram married in Malta). There is a Barbara M. WEARING who was born in Malta in 1929. I have a copy of a death certificate for a Bertram Allen WEARING (different spelling of Alan), who died in 1966 at age 64 (Registration District: Ipswich, Suffolk, Volume 4b, page 1141). The certificate states that he died 18 March 1966 at the Ipswich and East Suffolk Hosital, Anglsea Road Wing, Ipswich. He lived at 16 Deben Way, Felixstowe, and was a retired Flight Lieutenant, Royal Air Force. The cause of death was Cerebral Thrombosis b. Hypertension.The informant was Barbara M. BEARE, daughter, who was present at the death. She was then living at 155, Sunnymead Drive, Waterlooville, near Portsmouth. (So I assume that this Barbara was the daughter of Sylvia who travelled from Australia in 1932. (I have no proof that this is my relative). I would be interested to hear how I might connect the Bertram Alan WEARING who was born at Enstone in 1902 with the Bertram Allen WEARING who died at age 64 in Ipswich in 1966. I would think that the age and similarity of the somewhat unusual name would indicate that this is likely the same person. Any help much appreciated. Mike Wearing, Nova Scotia, Canada

I've never come across references to Gypsies during this period, although there are plenty of records of "rogues and vagabonds" which probably included them. Fortune telling was not a hanging offence, in fact it was widely practised with few prosecutions. Wealthier people tended to visit Astrologers whilst us commoners would visit the local Cunning Man or Woman. Cunning Folk were occasionally accused of witchcraft but rarely found guilty, as they were usually thought to combat witchcraft. See my site http://www.cunning.org.uk .

    3. Hi list, I am new here. I am trying to find further evidence of a clothier in Essex in 1893. The proprietor's name was Edward Dunk, a clothier in the 1891 census. I did notice that Dunk was not among the list of Essex surnames. Can SKS help? I have the address of Sun St. in Waltham Abbey. I do have that the wife, Elizabeth, remarried after Edward's death to someone with the surname Saville. Any further information available on these people?My greatgrandmother has a connection to this Edward Dunk. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Diane
