    Richard and Rachel look up requests

    Richard, Have found a burial record for a William Harris buried in St. Mary's Churchyard Alverstoke, Gosport on 8th December 1833. He was 78 years old. Could this be yours?
    Also Have found the burial record for Jane Bertha Harris. Buried Anns Hill Cemetery Gosport 7/2/1856 Plot 66 Unconcecreted ground (whatever that means) She is listed as a widow age 93! of North Street Gosport.
    Finally I also have the parish record of their marriage in 1789, although a bit difficult to read but readable!! If you would like these printouts, pm me your address and I will post them to you.

    Rachel, Haven't forgotten your request for lookups. Hopefully will be able to go to Study Centre again at the end of the week. Unfortunately, they only hold records for Gosport/Alverstoke not Fareham

    Thanks Lesley, that's wonderful stuff. Can't be 100% certain that is William, as not appearing on the censuses I can't really be sure how old he was, though has to be a pretty likely candidate. That is certainly Janes in any case, her and Williams children were all baptised in the High Street 'Independant' church, Gosport. Have no idea what denomination that indicates, but of course clearly not C of E, which no doubt explains the non consecrated burial!

    Anyway thank you again Lesley, so kind of you to do these look ups, and it is certainly very much appreciated. The copies also would be fantastic, though hope its not putting you out to much, will PM my address, very happy to cover any postage costs etc.

    Regards

    Richard

    Richard,
    I think the church in the High Street is Catholic. Or at least, the church there now is! I believe it's called St. Mary's.

    Hi again Lesley

    Have been doing a bit of a googling and apparantly the Independent Church in Gosport is not the same place, it was Presbyterian/Calvinist group of protestant dissenters, who met up in a house on the high street, rather than having it's own consecrated chapel. So that solves that one from me. I suppose not having a 'church' as such they wouldn't have had a grave yard either, so were buried in the local cemetery in the unconsecrated patch!

    Hi Lesley,

    That is a very kind offer. My OH is looking for Sturdy in Alverstoke and I wonder if you have found any Sturdy during your researches?

    Lesley, if you fall over any Trotmans in your travels, I'd be grateful. They are a very distant twig so please don't go looking specially.

    Help would be much appreciated

    Hello Lesley, we would really appreciate any help you could give us discovering a birth for a William Samain/Semaine/Semain around 1800. On every census he gives his place of birth as Gosport - and the year would be 1800 or maybe a year either side. This is our one big sticking point, if only we could find out who his parents were it would then enable us to continue with the family tree. As all the family were living in the East End of London we can't imagine why he was born in Gosport. Many thanks - Val and George

    Alverstoke/Gosport look ups

    Janet Uncle John and Val and George. Will see what I can find for you all but please be patient as searching is time consuming and Rachels search is next on my list!! It may take a couple of weeks as there is only one decent fiche to use in the library and if someone is using it, it is a case of waiting.
    Will do my best for you all
    Lesley

    Lesley,

    Thanks for offering to help. I do realise that Family History, like Rome, was never built in one day, so take all the time you want. Thanks once again for offering to help. We know there is a John Sturdy from Alverstoke and wondered if there were any more.

    Janet
