I am researching Hamilton Villa in South Road from the period 1860-1900. My great grandfather’s brother was living there at the time of his death in 1890, so I would like a street directory screen shot for my family history records, and any old photos of the houses opposite Prince Consort Gardens, which was still South Road back in those days.
Can I access census records just by using Hamilton Villa as a link, as I would like to know who also lived there between those years?
As you will have seen I have been unable to decide which man called John HARRIS was the Weston Worthy. I have two sets of dates for him 1775-1869 and 1775-1855. He could have been the first landlord of the Halfway House (on the site of the Sanatorium) - He could have been involved with early transport of goods from Weston to Bristol. What did he do to make him a Worthy? Do any of you have a John HARRIS on your tree? There are many about at that time and there are multiple marriages with a John HARRIS as groom. Any suggestions are welcome - at least I may be able to discard some of them as possibilities with a little more information. Thank you.
An author in the Netherlands is researching for an article or, possibly, a book on the lives of 18 British men who died there in Vorden, on May 4th, during WWII.
One of these men is Raymond Merrick BUSSELL - whose brother, Peter Giles BUSSELL, died in WsM in 1995. If you are descended from this BUSSELL family then please get in touch with the author Robert Ellenkamp on firstname.lastname@example.org
I have been researching W.H.T Skinner (c1850-1925) who bred and judged horses and appears to have won prizes at the Weston Horse/Agricultural? show. I am looking for information about this show, there are lists of winners in newspapers (Brit Newspaper archives) but I can find no details about the show, obviously a big event, when did it start, where was it held etc.
