Hi Sue, I came across some content you had on a Nicholas Troughton in Ulverston (Colton) on Ancestry in the library.  As I'm not a personal member of Ancestry I couldn't contact you there. 

I suspect we might be interested in the same individual - I'm working hard on that now but don't seem to be finding the critical baptisms.

My 3x great grand-father was William Troughton b circa 1800 in Ulverston.  Father's name on a late-life marriage is Nicholas.

Do we connect, do you think?

Hello Sue,

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner - we just got back from vacation and I did not have access to the internet.

Thanks for looking at the records - I knew that there is always a chance that info will not be found.

William Smith and Susan Ann Preston are the correct parents for Susan Ann Smith as they also immigrated to the US - I think they left before the 1871 census (I can't find them). I finally found William and Susan Smith in Walpole-St Peter on the 1861 Census - he claimed to have been born in Walsoken. Susan Ann Preston claimed to have been born in Tholomas Drove. On the 1851 census - William was in Salthouse working and Susan was in Walpole-St Peter with the children.

(I just looked again at the Wards on the 1871 census and I see that family 12 is Susan Preston - born in Tholomas Drove - supported by husband who lived in America)

I had researched this family many years ago and looking back - my notes were not the best. I think I will just start all over and order the Church Records on microfilm and view them at the FHC.

William Ward claimed to have been born in Tipps End on the 1871 census. It looks like this town is part of Welney??? - I have not found him for sure on the 1861 census or the 1851 census. I am thinking that maybe I should see his if birth records are at St Mary's in Welney. There are several microfilm I can order.

Thanks again for your time - I will keep in touch.

Thank you so much for the website info and the kind offer for a look-up. I would appreciated the help in this matter.

I am looking for the marriage record for William Ward and Susan Ann Smith that occurred in Dec 1867 at Terrington-St Clement. Susan was born March 1851 in Walpole-St Peter and her parents were William B Smith (b Jan 1821 in West Walton) and Susan Ann Preston (b Feb 1823). The Wards immigrated to the US right after the 1871 census.

Thank you for adding me as a friend.
The Reids that I am looking for are Thomas Reid and Ann(nee Ferrier or Ferria) They were married in 1889 March 30 in Dundee.My grandmother Helen (Ferrier) Reid was born 1897 13th June in District of St. Clement in the Burgh of Dundee. In spite of all this infomation I can't find them anywhere, mainly due to the fact that so many have the same name.
Are any of your Reids from the same are or have same names? I think there may have been a sister Margaret but am not sure.
Happy searching.

Sue, would you be able to take pictures of the graves of Laniers and Dicksons? Let me know and I will try to find out where they are buried. Thank you

Could you give me some advice?

I have been researching a William Ward, born in or near Wisbech in 1848, In Dec. 1867 he married a Susan Ann Smith in Terrington-St Clement. The marriage records from the church were stolen and never microfilmed but I had been told that copies had been moved to Cambridgeshire before the theft from the church. Were and how do I order a copy to their marriage records?

I had found them on the 1871 census before they immigrated to the central US, but I would be more comfortable using their marriage record as a source for his parents.

Thanks so much....
