Hello, my name is Wendy METCALF (nee ATKINSON) my parents were Norman ATKINSON & May ATKINSON (nee BULLETT). My dad was born on 4th September 1913 & my Mum on the 4th May 1911. My dad's parents were Robert Oates ATKINSON & his Mother was called Annie but unfortunately I never knew her maiden name. My Father's parent's both passed away many year's ago and were living in Harrogate at the time; they are buried in Stonefall Cemetery, Harrogate. My late Grandfather was a policeman, working the beat in Milnsbridge, I am told he was a Sergeant.
My Mum's parentís were John William (Jack) BULLETT & Elsie Ann BULLETT (nee BEIGHTON). My Mum's parent's lived in Longwood, most of their life. My own parent's were married at St. Mark's Church Longwood, on August 31st 1940. Both of my Parents are now deceased but I do know that my Father was an only child ... and my Mother had one sister called Kathleen (also deceased). I also remember that sometime after my Dad passed away (he died 26 years ago), that there was a programme on television, which was in connection with a Duke; during the programme, my Dad was mentioned ... but I cannot remember exactly what programme it was or which Duke? If anyone can help me with any information regarding any of the above mentioned people, please contact me as I would like to find as much information as possible ... I would also love to find any other surviving descendants ... I look forward to hearing from anyone with details to share. Thank you so much, Wendy Metcalf
Looking for information regarding Henry DAWSON and Edith EDWARDS & their family
Seeking Henry DAWSON, who was my Grandfather's brother. Henry was born 1871 at Milton, Berkshire, his parents were John & Eliza DAWSON. Henry married Edith EDWARDS in 1891 at Westminster, daughter of Francis and Eliza EDWARDS of Larling, Norfolk. Henry worked on the railway as a platelayer at Milton (in 1893) when their first son William John was born; he was still a platelayer when John Henry was born at Milton in 1894. The 1901 census shows the family living at Water Eaton, near Oxford. Henry was at this time working as a shepherd and it s here that Fredrick, Edith and Albert were all born. Albert the youngest, was born 1901; Fredrick died at Water Eaton in 1900. I have not been able to locate any of this family since the 1901 census, I have looked on shipping records, but I just come up against that brick wall. I would be most grateful for any information about this family. Thank you & regards, Jenette in Australia
Looking for details & information regarding KENT (or THENT) family of Suffolk (UK) & Australia
Looking for a Thomas KENT (or THENT) and his wife Susan KENT (nee CHAMBERS). Susan was possibly born at North Tuddenham in Norfolk 1797 and Thomasí death appears to be before census of 1861; they were both in the village of Wangford by Southwold and I assume that he died there. Unsure whether he had a business in the town or whether he was a clergyman or teacher like his son. In the 1861 census, a Susan KENT turns up in the Suffolk town of Beccles & I assume this is the same woman; she is listed as a lodging house keeper (Ballygate St) ... but an earlier census gives her occupation as a school head mistress ... again I'm guessing the earlier census is the correct Susan. They were married on the 5th of March 1824 in the village of Wangford by Southwold, Suffolk.
Thomas & Susan were the parents of my great great grandfather the Reverend Samuel Chambers KENT, who was christened at Wangford by Southwold on 2nd January 1826 (according to LDS and certificate info from Australian registrations) & he died at 8 Murray St Elsternwick/Carlton Melbourne Victoria Australia in 1911 aged 85 yrs & buried St Kilda cemetery (Melbourne, Vic) with his third wife; he had 15-16 children with his first two wives. His wives were: (1) Emily Deacon MARCH, in 1850 at Lambeth Surrey ... (2) Charlotte Eliza WILSON nee CHAPMAN; Samuel was her second husband and her 1st husband was Andrew WILSON (in 1853) & Charlotte & Andrew had one child. Charlotte later married Samuel in 1869 (Newtown) Sydney NSW Australia ...(3) Elizabeth Raymond BUXTON, married 1881 at Albert Park Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
(Reverend) Samuel Chambers KENT was the first pastor of the Newtown (Sydney) Congregational Church and Principal/founder of Camden College-now the United Theological Collage North Parramatta Sydney NSW Australia & they have a large oil painting/portrait of him in their library. He also has several references made to him on the Newtown Project (Sydney history) site. He arrived there in 1855 ships "Pacific and Governor General 111Ē. Had second son in Barnstaple Devon Sept 1853 (Sydney Architect) Harry Chambers KENT but don't know where Frederick Deacon Kent 1851-1925 was born, though he was a solicitor. The Victorian state library has a picture of him on their on-line archive. He switched to the Anglican church for the last approx. 30 years of his life.
I can't see any links to other members of this KENT family in the Wangford area that could be siblings or relations of these three-not on the Australian available resources anyway. Seems to be a little unusual that Samuel Chambers KENT would have been an only child. But that's a whole other search. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards-Elizabeth Curtain -Trafalgar, Victoria, Australia.

Seeking descendants of George ROWBOTTOM & Louisa THOMLINSON nee RICHARDSON
I am looking for descendents of George ROWBOTTOM and Louisa (THOMLINSON nee RICHARDSON). The 1901 Census shows the family living at 141 Albert Street, Kingston upon Hull, at which time Louisa TOMLINSON had two daughters Jessica (age 16) and Maud (age 14).
