  1. Haha. Yeah good point! He was shown as his apprentice in the 1851 census
  2. Hi I wondered if anybody had any info on this man. One of my ancestors a William smith was an apprentice to a William Harrison living at 152 ranmoor. I was wondering if this was the same William Harrison that went on to be quite a large firm or they just happened to have the same name. If anybody could help on the history of the firm it would be much appreciated. Kindest regards Sally

  5. Thanks HD, I will look into that. Thankyou for your time :-)
  6. It seems she may not be buried at loxley after all as she is not on any records. Anyone got any good websites that may find her grave. I've tried a couple but they come up with zero matches
  7. Does anybody know of a way to find out if one of my relatives is buried at Loxley Cemetery? Im looking for an Elizabeth Mitchell who died 1st December 1963.

Any help much appreciated.

  12. Unfortunately we don't have a clue on dates :-( It is a story my nan was told as a little girl. Interesting that it could be true tho, I would love to find out more. The story goes... Henry Mitchell b: abt 1834 d: 1901 who was a sporting agent disowned John C Mitchell b: 1865 d: 1937. It is thought the fall out was to do with the family's disaproval of his marriage to Elizabeth Beatrice Alice renshaw (poor girl). He married her in 1901 so it could be about this time just before his death.
  13. After a conversation with a relative of mine I was told that my 3rd great grandfather disowned my 2nd great grandfather and it he put a notice in the times about it. Could this be possible? Has anybody ever heard of anything like this before?
  14. Thanks that sounds perfect! On the birth certificate it says born at grenoside workhouse in 1876 but on the net it says it wasn't built until 1881! Puzzle upon puzzle this one
