    1. [SOUTHAMPTON]Rootsweb closure
    2. We have seen a suggestion on other lists that good practice would be for all current members send a final email to <> restating their research interests and names so that in the months and years ahead, other researchers finding those emails will be able to find you all It seems to be a great idea so message away and then join the new Hampshire List at <> if you have not already done so Take care Linda & Tony

Just delete - don't open the emails. are dealing with it but it may be that several emails will have been sent out to list members Thanks Linda & Tony

    1. [SOUTHAMPTON]GRO price rise
    2. Courtesy of Nivard from another list: From Feb 2019 the price of certificates and PDF copies is rising significantly Certificates will rise from the present £9.25 to £11 PDF copies (where available) will rise from £6 to £7 In addition there will be a £3 search fee where no reference is supplied (currently the same price as when supplied) And a £3.50 charge if no certificate match can be made with supplied details (with or without GRO ref supplied?) Priority service charge will also rise but shouldn't usually affect most researchers It will go from the present £23.40 to £35 for next day service So you best get ordering pronto ;-) Linda & Tony

    1. [SOUTHAMPTON]William John WARREN b.1846 St Helier
    2. Fenella Rook Smith
    3. William John WARREN born28 September 1846,baptised St Helier 25 October 1846, son of GeorgeWarren (employe au gazometeur) and Susan (nee Malzard).  He is age 4 with parents at ADDRESS: 2 Gas Lane , St Helier, Jersey in 1851 census, and by the 1861 census the Warren family had moved to St Mary's, Southampton.    There is a marriage of William John T WARREN and Emma BARNESreg Dec qtr 1867 Southampton. I'm pretty certain that this is William born in Jersey but would like to confirm this.  They had children William John Warren b.1868, Charles Henry Warren b,1869, Emma Jane Warren b,1872, George Thomas Warren b.1874, all in Southampton. But after that the family disappears. Where are they in 1881? 1891?  I think William John WARREN is my sons' great-grandfather. Is anyone related to this family?Fenella In Canada..

    3. Hi Hilda, I've had one other person kindly reply to me regarding this, they said to them it looked like it could be 90 days. So that's 90 and 80, any advances? Many thanks to you Hilda, kind regards, Jon

    3. Hi Jon, I can't find the details in any other newspaper and the copy is most unclear at the left hand edge. However, it looks like 80 days to me. What do others think? Unless the original paper can be viewed, then it's really a guess.

    3. Hi, It's not particularly clear, as it's in the left-most column of a right-hand page, so the image is slightly indistinct from the curvature of the binding ... but I _think_ it's 90 days: it seems to be more legible to the naked eye when not over-enlarged.

    3. We are delighted to tell you all that is back! Our domain name registration was renewed in January, 3 weeks ahead of due date but the company Webmania also known as Nathan Barnes t/a YorHost failed to renew and so the site was taken down by Nominet who regulate the internet market. This was the second successive renewal that this had happened but we have now transferred to another registration company and had to pay a transfer fee and another registration. Just a word of warning to anyone that is using or thinking of using webmania...don't! Happy hunting Linda & Tony Knight Hampshire OPC Co-ordinators

    1. [SOUTHAMPTON] 3 and 4 East Place, Southampton
    2. Fenella Rook Smith via
    3. Can anyone tell me where East Place was? Southampton directories say it was at 15 East Street.  1881 census shows SMITH at 4 East Place, and CLARK at 3 East Place. John SMITH and Sarah CLARK were married in Southampton in 1883. Was East Place a row of dwellings or was it an actual street? Are there any photographs of this area? Thanks.... Fenella in Canada.

    1. [SOUTHAMPTON] John SMITH b.1867 Winchester
    2. Fenella Rook Smith via
    3. John SMITH married Sarah CLARK March quarter 1883 Southampton. In 1891 Census John SMITH says he was born 1857 in Winchester. By this time he has a son Harry b.1883 and a daughter Jane b.1887, living at 6 Cross Court, All Saints, Southampton. By the 1901 census John SMITH has died, and Sarah is a widow living with three children at 64 Dukes Road, Portswood, Southampton. I'm trying to determine who John SMITH was, but with that name, it isn't easy! He might be John SMITH b.1856 Winchester son of Jane SMITH widow age 40 in Southampton in 1871 census, with siblings William b.1858 Tipperary, Ireland and Rebecca b.1860 Cork Ireland. Jane Smith says she is from York in 1871 and Lincoln in 1881. Any help would be appreciated. Fenella in Canada

    3. Hi , I have a marriage in Poplar, London, 1880, of George Moore decorator, son of George Moore, shoemaker. George Moore shoemaker I have identified in the 1841 as living in Pembroke Sq Southampton , aged 35, N , with wife Harriet , 25 and Edward, 13 , and Frederick , 9 . However , if these are right , then I am not right with the 1851 census for Millbank, St Mary , S`ton , who are Harriet , 30, shoe binder, b Eling, Hants, William , 9 , Jane, 7, Fanny ,4, and George 2. There is a GRO entry for the death of a George Moore in S`ton district in the Sept 1/4 of 1849. I can find this family in the 1861 and 1871 . But no sign of Edward and Frederick , who may well have died as children or just be the wrong family. I have certainty from the marriage in Poplar in 1880 , George the decorator marries Naomi Greening , and that , thankfully , is an unusual name so am clear from there on . George says he is born Southampton and he is 59 in 1911 , and 50 in 1901 , and 19 in 1871 , all b Southampton . Thanks to the Knights for the huge amount of work put online, how good it is to see that , for Southampton`s PRs.. I am aiming modestly at the marriage of George and Harriet ? c 1820-1835, maybe at Eling if this is the right family . And the bapt of George circa 1800 in St Mary`s S`ton....perhaps !!! life is hard . soften it with a cat \\\=^..^=///
