My great-great grandfather Charles Merriman moved to NZ in 1877. He married Mary Ann Miles in Headington, Oxford in Dec 1869. We are trying to make contact with Tracey Munro who left a message here on 16 Sept 2010,as we share the same Great Great grandfather Charles Merriman. If Tracey would make contact with me i can help her with some info and maybe she could help us also.Did you send a reply to Tracey at that time?
Hi Wendy, thanks so much for the message!
I'm from New Zealand but I'm living in Berkshire UK at the moment so I've recently started trying to trace my family back to our UK heritage. My great-great grandfather Charles Merriman moved to NZ in 1877. I believe he married Mary Ann Miles in Headington, Oxford in Dec 1869. I'd love to find out more about his life and family in the UK, any ideas where would be a good place to start?
Thanks so much!
I wondered if you could clarify something please. In 2007 I bought the WIT01 CD from the Holford Centre. I have been putting in a concerted effort to record all my BUCKINGHAM ancestors so have been trawling through the CD. I have been adding lots of marriages and have come across a comment elsewhere that marriages took place In Hailey but were recorded in Witney register only. Is this true and if so how can you tell where they took place ? I see some have both parties places of residence as Hailey are these the Hailey marriages?
One other question could you please tell me if the Hailey marriages from 1854 have been transcribed or are only the originals available. Thanks Robyn
My third g grandfather Francis Norton was born in Tasburgh in 1790. He attained a position of "Clerk Comptroller for Her majesty's household". A spot he held for 14 years. He later started a business with his son, Henry, at 1 York street, st james. Henry's son Harry immagrated in 1879.
Thanks for your emails. My father's mother's family Pooles and Gardners came from Oxfordshire originally. The Pooles from Windrush Taynton and Stonesfield in Oxfordshire and the Gardners from Brize Norton.
I have all the Artiss entries from JOJ on the BL site from the Gale earlier free trials. I have been thinking about buying the OFHS Quarter sessions records since it came out but it appears it is of no interest to me if there are no Art?(s)s entries.
So it looks like it will go onto the back burner until the possiblity of me getting to see the Calendars of Prisoners, at ORO.
