  • Record lookup?

    I have a transcription of two baptisms
    "Edward John Veale" was baptised 19 Feb 1837, "said to be born 25 September 1826". Father John (Labourer in H.M Yard) and Charlotte Joyce; abode Devonport.
    and
    "William Coverley Veale" same dates/parents, except "Said to be born 5 Jan 1829"

    These are from:

    Devon Family History Society, '''The Deanery of the Three Towns''', Exeter, England : Devon Family History Society, c2004 , CD-ROM

    I'm wondering if anyone has access to the actual baptismal records? Are they on FMP? I'd be interesting in getting a copy.

    Also - "Labourer in H.M. Yard" - would there be any records about him, in relation to his employer and work?

    Thanks!

    The original records, for Stoke Damerel Church, are on Familysearch - just click through the result, when searching for Edward John VEALE, to the parish record.[Edward John is at the bottom of one page and William Coverly at the top of the next page]

      I suspect the HM Yards refers to theyards ofHis Majesty's Naval Base, Devonport - (now the largest Naval Base in Europe), the history of which can be viewed here:

      At the time of the baptisms in 1820/30s there were two yards - South Yard and Morice Yard.

        So awesome! I'm revisiting research that I had done years ago, and they didn't have the images then, just the CD information. Thank you

          This family moved around, and I'm not clear on his work. It's tough to put together details for an ancestor who wasn't newsworthy.

          Also, this family were Dissenters. The children were initially baptised by a Dissenting Minister. Something must have triggered the decision to baptise them CoE.

            ​ Edward Veale marries Maud Mary - record is not on FS. I'm interested in his father's trade, and the witnesses to the wedding.
            thanks

              The year isnt included in your request above, but it was 1884 (26 Apr) at St George Hanover Square.

              Fathers were Edward John Veale, Gentleman, and Samuel Rootham, Professor of Music.

              Wits: Samuel Rootham & William George Veale.

                Sorry, continuing with this line, John Roger Veale apparently married Alice, probably in Canada?. I think this is him in BC in 1891

                but I can't see the other members of the household on FS.

                but then they go back to UK? Baptisms for their children

                There are death registrations, too, but I'm interested in John & Alice's marriage record

                  Online trees say John Roger Decoverly Veale married Alice Augusta Cogan on 3 Jul 1889 at Churchbridge, Saskatchewan (Assinaboia).

                      teasie thanks for both.

                      It looks like SK certs are not indexed/viewable online, but must be ordered (and paid for)? Anyone know anything different?

                        Hi Photo Family,

                        ehealthsask.ca/residents /genealogy

                        They do have a genealogy index which shows:

                        Births over 100 years
                        Deaths over 75 years

                        However they have not got the marriage index online as yet.

                        Saskatchewan became a province in Canada in 1905.

                        And yes, unfortunately you will have to order and pay for bmd certificates which is an expensive way to go - $55 for a marriage cert.
