I have put some information here for anyone who finds this page! I have listed my names in my priority order with area of interest. All are in England unless otherwise stated. I hope to upload a lot more information when I can find a free web-based database.
|TALMAGE|| I have a vast amount of information on the Talmage name, including Birth, Marriage & Death information from 1837 to 2001 for ALL UK Talmages. My Talmages are mainly from Essex from about 1750, but my information covers ALL Talmages. I also have the indexes of Talmage wills (National Probate) from 1858 to 2001.|
At the moment I am trying to link Talmages (Tarmage/Talmash etc.) from Great/Little Clacton back to Suffolk (around Ipswich).
|WILLSON||My earlier Willsons come from St. Pancras area of London in the 1820s. Before that time they possibly came from Faversham in Kent? They use to be in the Furniture & Upholstery business|
|GRATER||My grandmother came from a large family in Devon. I know of at least three other family members working on this line. I have done a lot more work on the Grater line. I now have Birth, Marriage & Death information from 1837 to 2001 for ALL UK Graters. I also have the index information for national probate wills from 1858 to 1943.|
|BALL||The family of my other grandmother came from Edgbaston/Birmingham area. I am told that I am related to Captain Ball, the famous first world war pilot. However, I can't prove any connection and I don't think it's true!|
|ELLISON||The Ellison's came from London & Essex. I have had difficulty in finding birth certificates for the 1840's|
|TARRY||The Tarry side of the family came from Great Creaton and later (1840's) from Weedon Beck in Northamptonshire. Unfortunately no census was returned for Weedon Beck in 1841.|
|CARTER||The Carters came from Devon. I haven't pursued this line, because there is some doubt that she was in fact my great grandmother, although she was married to my great grandfather!|
|HART||The Harts were a Jewish family who came from London. Their business was fruit.|
Names below are more "distant" and my knowledge and interest is limited
|GOULD||Susan Gould was born in London about 1818.|
|PARISH||Sarah Parish was born in Loughton about 1827. Ancestors were possibly PARRISH|
|WILLIAMS||Mary Williams was born in Devon about 1809|
|CHAFFIN||This may well be the name of my true Great grandmother (as on Birth Certificate)|
|REYNOLDS||Lucretia Reynolds was born about 1828.|
|LEVY||Unable to find any information on Abraham Levy.|
|GREEN||Elizabeth Green was born in about 1832 in Birmingham|
|WATSON||A prominent Weedon Beck family with connections to the painter, John Sell Cotman.|
Although the following names are far from prominent on my family tree and there is no blood-link, I have taken a special interest in these names and I have quite a lot of information.
|COLLINS||Mainly from Prittlewell in Southend.|
|COTMAN||Details linking my tree to the famous painter.|
|FREE||The Frees of Essex (Loughton area)|
|GUSSIN||The Gussins of Loughton, Essex|
|WILLINGALE||I have a lot of linking information, but see the Willingale site on www.willingale.org This has a lot of information on everything Willingale.|
|WINNER/WENNER||My cousins from Norfolk. The name was changed from Winner to Wenner in about 1900. The reason for the name change is rumoured to be a family argument!|
|YATES||The Yates from Syresham and Brackley area.|
There are, of course, many other names on the family tree, many of them of little interest to me. However, here are some of them that ARE of interest - particularly those in South Africa.
|In England||HANNABUSS (London/Tiverton Devon), NEWMAN (Essex), HENTY (Essex), WHITNEY (died in China ?), BEALL (from Kent in 1800's)|
|In South Africa||TALMAGE (all), ROSS, BISHOP, DONOVAN, BRADFIELD|
