    The addition of Portsmouth area records to FMP is the best news for me. I have spent the past few viewing and downloading images for my many ancestors and wider family from the area.

    Grasshopper - FMP is the abbreviation for FindMyPast.

    Hi Bertie! That,s good news then! Pity my subs are with Ancestry though and not FMP!!!

    Might have to consider going back to FMP then although I had trouble negotiating that site last time I joined it!

    Hi all - the Bishops Transcripts of these records are indexed on familysearch.org. If you go to a familysearch library you can view the images. The Parish records are also on-line you may need to search the Catalog for the film number - again these films can be browsed in a familysearch library - you can find your nearest familysearch library on their website. familysearch is currently digitising all their films so it is worth checking the catalog for what has been digitised. Some of the films can be accessed from home, others you need to be in a familysearch library
    Regards

    One option is to buy just a month's sub. (I think about £10) - if you are well organised and know which records you want it might be a very cost effective option.

    The records cover the deaneriis of Fareham, Gosport, Havant & Portsmouth.

    As far as I can see FMP has all the records familysearch have [indexed] and more up to c1916 although I've found some of the transcription names a bit different. But if you know an event happened it's easy enough to tweak the search box content.

    I just double checked and I can get FMP through my local library in Australia. Yay! I might even be able to help someone out.

    Hello
    After all these years I seem no closer to understanding the factors resulting in the demise of the family members of James GARNER, publican, owner of The White Hart and other properties at Halfway House (Gosport/Alverstoke). (see earlier posts on this thread). After James' death in 1860, his children Ann, Charles, James and John F appear to inherit well - according to his Will, but subsequently appear to loose their wealth. There are a couple of requests for Claims on James' estate (1881 and 1884), but what happened? Do the local papers have any insight? Does anybody have any local knowledge? Thanks.

    The information you refer to was back in 2012, not sure if I found all the info, I assume that you found all the tree links? Perhaps a quick summary maybe helpful.

    I don't have a subscription the BNA I visit the library to view. I can see that there are a number of articles about the pub and bankruptcy, the hampshire times and the portsmouth times and naval gazette are both on there.

    There is also a tree on ancestry with additional information but this maybe yours?

    the son looks to have taken over the tavern, here is one transcribed quote: "John Ferris Garner, landlord cf the M White Hart tavern, was summoned on charge of firing off gun in the highway on the January. Mr. Field attended for defendant ..."

    "Application was made by Mr. H. Ford, of Fortsea, on behalf of Mr. John F. Garner, for pirmiMOu remove his license from the Old White Hart (where the trade had been completely destroyed by the Stokes Bay Railway Company diverting the ..."

    I searched for - garner "white hart" - and limited it to 1850 to 1900 and to Hampshire - there seems to be a good choice of articles, so maybe check out if your library has access, I think there maybe a bit or reading

    Thanks for your reply Carolyn. My eyes lit up when I saw that you'd found a reference to a bankruptcy, but there didn't actually appear to be a Garner one. There were a couple of other interesting articles including an imprisonment within the Garner family, but the search goes on for lost wealth. Many thanks.

    I had assumed the one about the trade had been destroyed would have led to loss of money? what did the article say?
