I am trying to connect the Dimmick's ( Demick) of Milton/Milford - David Dimmick b 1700 with the IOW Dimmick's. I can get back to a marriage of Nicholas Demick and Jane Road in 1654 ( David's grandfather) in Milton but around this time there should be a brother who possibly heads the IOW line. Can anyone give me more information from the IOW line ? I think Nicholas was born in Lymington.

I'm trying to connect with anyone who may have a common BROAD ancestry. My gggg grandfather was William BROAD from the Broughton area of Hampshire. He was born around 1761 and marries Elizabeth Murrant in 1788 in Broughton. They had 5 children; William (my ggg grandfather), Thomas, Charles, Hannah and Ann.

I also have a lot of information about the YOUNG family, spreading out from Ringwood to Lymington, Milton, Hordle and Ashley.
My great grandfather, Joseph Young, retired from the Navy (where he was on the Royal yacht Brittannia) to Ashley Common, with his wife (Louisa, nee Moorman b Portsea) and his older children, including my grandmother, Clara Eugenie Young. Other members of the family had remained round the edges of the Forest, and I would particularly like to contact a member of the family of John Young of Bashley (elder bropther of Joseph) who spent a few years in America before returning there. He had a daughter Celestine - what ever became of her? EVE

Hi, My name is Joan. My grandfather (Thomas William Gardener) was born in East Worldham, Hampshire in 1863. He came to the United States in 1871 with his parents. His father was Thomas Henry Gardener and his mother was Caroline Albury.
I am also related to the Bone and Garnett and Christmas families all in the East Worldham, West Worldham and Alton areas.
Is anyone related to these families?

Has anyone got MOORMAN ancestors from the Island? Specifically, connexions of Nicholas Moorman of Newchurch, Ryde, sea captain and smuggler, last seen in Horsham Gaol in c1820, after a little dust-up with the Revenue. EVE

Thank you Ann and Lynnette. I am hoping to go the Portsmouth Record Office this afternoon.

David, re. Bedford Street, Buckland.
"BEDFORD STREET 83.4 (1896) Buckland
Runs W from Kingston Road to unnamed road (which was part of Malthouse Lane on 83.4.23 (1861)).
N of houses on N side a Nursery (access from Kingston Road)" from Portsmouth central library info.

Bedford St & Dumbarton St, just south of it, were probably destroyed by bombing and my later map shows Clydebank Road in that location. Portsmouth City Museum (local studies/research room) would have more information and well worth a contact.
