    1. [NIXEY] A new page on the Blacklead King website
    2. Jonathan Nixey
    3. Hi everyone, Some time ago I began working on a new chapter for the Blacklead King website at http://www.blackleadking.org It’s with regards William George Nixey’s nephew, Edward Nixey, who was the managing director of the Nixey, Coleclough & Baxter Brewery and who served 3 times as Mayor of West Hartlepool. The page has not been completed yet, but I hope to have it live soon. It will be chapter 14 and called “Meanwhile, In Other Matters...” For anyone who hasn’t seen what Edward Nixey looked like, it includes his portrait at the head of the chapter. In fact, if you’d like to see his portrait, go to this temporary page: http://www.blackleadking.org/chapter14.html Kind regards to all, Jon --- This email has been checked for viruses by AVG. https://www.avg.com

    3. Hi everyone, Just an update that this list is now back in action after the recent overhaul of the Rootsweb servers. It would be lovely to hear from you all, especially if you have a piece of Nixey research that you’re struggling with, or a piece of research you’d like to share. As this is generally a very quiet list, it would also be really nice to hear from you all, maybe just a little introduction as to who you are, which country you live in, (but please DO NOT give out personal information such as your birth date or home address), how long you’ve been researching your family history, and your connection with or interest in the Nixey family. Also if you have a personal website or blog that is based on family history, please feel free to share that with the list as well. My website address is: http://www.blackleadking.org And my blog can be found at: https://theblindgenealogist.wordpress.com Kindest regards to all, Jon.

    1. [NIXEY] Death of James Nixey 1867 Buckinghamshire
    2. Jon OFHS5790 via
    3. For anyone researching the family of David Nixey and Jane nee Payne in Slough and Langley Marish, Buckinghamshire, here is a newspaper article regarding the death of their son James at the age of 26: Windsor and Eton Express, Saturday 15 June 1867 SUDDEN DEATH AT A CLUB FEAST Mr. F. Charsley, the Bucks coroner, held an inquest on Thursday, on view of the body of James Nixey, a soldier belonging to the 11th Brigade of Royal Artillery. The following evidence was adduced: Police-constable Cracknell, of the Bucks constabulary, said: On Tuesday I was on duty in the Trenches, near Langley, at a club feast. The deceased, James Nixey, was there nearly all the afternoon. He was a native of Langley Marish, and was a driver of the A Battery 11th Brigade in the Royal Artillery. His regiment is stationed at Shorncliffe. He has been at Langley on furlough for nearly two months, visiting his friends. He appeared to be as well as usual. He was dancing several times during the afternoon. About 8 o’clock he was dancing with two men – Francis Thorn and John Davis. They were wheeling away to leave off. Twenty or thirty couple were dancing at the same time. I did not see him fall, but I saw him being carried out. I went up to him. Salt and water, vinegar, and brandy were applied, but he never moved. A medical man was sent for, and Mr. Buée’s assistant came, but he pronounced him to be dead. I did not see any violence used to him. Francis Thorn, of George Green, Langley, said: On Tuesday I was at the club feast at Langley. About half past 7 in the evening I and Davis were dancing with the deceased. He appeared in his usual health. I was dancing with him four or five minutes. Suddenly his legs doubled under him and he fell. I caught his hat. I thought that he was in a fit. I and Davis caught hold of him, carried him out, and placed him on the grass. He did not speak. He straightened his legs out, and appeared to breathe about three times. There had not been any blow struck, and no violence whatever used to him. He was sober. Mr. William Urban Buée, of Slough, surgeon, said: I was not at home on Tuesday when sent for to the deceased, but my assistant was. I have this day seen the body of the deceased. It is very much swollen and decomposed. There is blood oozing from the nose and mouth. His death, in my opinion, has arisen from disease of the heart leading to the rupture of some blood-vessel. The jury returned a verdict that the deceased had died suddenly of disease of the heart.

    3. Just to update everyone, my Y37 DNA test has been sent off to the USA, so now it’s a matter of sitting back and waiting for the results. I’ve been advised in the not too distant future to upgrade to the Y67 test which will give much more meaningful results. I’ll keep you all updated as to what’s gone on. Best wishes, Jon

    1. [NIXEY] David NIXEY and Jane formerly PAYNE in the 1841 census
    2. Jon via
    3. Hi everyone, Some time ago, I was desperately trying to find David NIXEY and Jane formerly PAYNE in the 1841 census, but had no success. The closest I'd found was a Henry and Jane NIXEY who were living at Kings Head, West Drayton, Middlesex. The census reference is HO107 Piece 655 Folio 7 Page 7. While researching another line of the family, I purchased a birth certificate of a William NIXEY, but when the certificate arrived, it proved two things. Firstly, that this William was not the son of who I thought he was. Secondly, it shone a light on the Henry and Jane NIXEY in the 1841 census, proving that they were actually David and Jane. Here is a transcript of the birth certificate: Birth in the sub-district of Hillingdon in the County of Middlesex When and where born: Eighth of June 1841 at West Drayton Name, if any: William Sex: Boy Name and surname of father: Henry Nixey Name, surname and maiden surname of mother: Jane Nixey formerly Payne Occupation of father: Labourer Signature, description and residence of informant: The X Mark of Jane Nixey, Mother, West Drayton When registered: Thirteenth of July 1841 Signature of Registrar: Francis Stockwell, Registrar So, for some reason, David took a name change for a little while. So far, I've found no baptism record for this William, and all of David and Jane's other children had their father's forename as David, none of them had Henry as his name. This young William died in the Eton registration district, Oct-Dec 1843 vol. 6 p. 255. He was buried at St Mary the Virgin, Langley Marish on 27th December 1843. I hope this is of interest/use to anyone researching David and Jane's family. Regards to all, Jon

    1. [NIXEY] For anyone researching the family of David NIXEY and Jane nee PAYNE
    2. Jon via
    3. In the 1841 census, after much searching, David and Jane Nixey could not be found. A Henry and Jane Nixey were found, but obviously it was thought that this couldn’t be them because of the husband’s incorrect forename. While researching our family, I ordered the birth certificate of William Nixey at uxbridge in 1841, and, although it turned out he didn’t belong to the Nixey parents I’d thought he did, it does help solve the David and Jane / Henry and Jane saga. Birth in the sub-district of Hillingdon in the County of Middlesex When and where born: Eighth of June 1841 at West Drayton Name, if any: William Sex: Boy Name and surname of father: Henry Nixey Name, surname and maiden surname of mother: Jane Nixey formerly Payne Occupation of father: Labourer Signature, description and residence of informant: The X Mark of Jane Nixey, Mother, West Drayton When registered: Thirteenth of July 1841 Signature of Registrar: Francis Stockwell, Registrar So, the henry and Jane in the 1841 census are obviously David and Jane, with David evidently having changed his forename for some reason to Henry. This birth is just two days after the night the census was taken. Folloing William’s birth, David and Jane return to Buckinghamshire where the remainder of their family were born, in Slough and Langley Marish. In fact, William was buried at Langley marish on 27th December 1843. I hope this is of interest to Nixey researchers. Best wishes, Jon

It was alleged that respondent went on to his wrong side and ran into plaintiff who was rendered unconscious for two days, sustaining a broken jaw, broken nose, severe scalp wound, deep cut in thigh, and right knee joint cut open. Respondent denied negligence and counter-claimed for £37 3s 1d (injuries and loss through the accident), but the jury returned a verdict for plaintiff and judgment was entered as stated.

    3. Hampshire Advertiser, Saturday 22 June 1844 SOUTHAMPTON POLICE Wednesday (Before E. H. Hulton and P. Dickson, esqrs) An Unfortunate Woman. – This term peculiarly applies to the case of Elizabeth Louis, who was charged with having unlawful possession of a glazier’s diamond. She was decently dressed, like the wife of a respectable mechanic, and her manner was humble and sorrowful. Mr. Edward Nixey, oil and colourman, stated that his store in Orchard Lane was broken open on Tuesday week, and four glazier’s diamonds and a quantity of copper money stolen. Having communicated with the police, they had called on Mrs. Spurrier, the pawnbroker. On Tuesday last, the prisoner, who had frequently pledged articles before, offered a glazier’s diamond, and a policeman was sent for, who apprehended her. The prisoner told the policeman that on the previous Tuesday night she was with a man named Yeoman, at the Spread Eagle, and he left the diamond there next morning as a deposit for a pot of beer. Being hard pressed for a little money, she on the day named (last Tuesday) paid the sixpence at the Spread Eagle for the diamond and then took it to pledge. The magistrates remanded her till Monday next. The prisoner appealed to the magistrates to have her child, only three years old, taken care of, while she was in jail. Mr. Hulton asked if the child were present, and being answered in the negative, said they could say nothing to the application.
