Your website is amazing and although I cannot see a direct connection to your family yet, I live in South Normanton and am the grand daughter of Beryl Haywood (1887-1966) from South Normanton. This line continues back via her father Edward (1863-1902), his father Edward (1825-1905) and his father Francis (1801-c1866) who married a Jane Cresswell.

I have been researching my family tree on and off for some time now and with the lockdown I have focussed on updating it. My connection is through my mother Lillian Palethorpe who was the fourth of five children to Harry and Mary Ellen Palethorpe. She married Frank Scott, a coal miner and I was born in Pinxton. This site has cleared up a problem we had with Harriett Palethorpe as to her maiden name. (there are far too many Richard Palethorpes in the area!) The reason for this initial contact is that there is a picture of my grandfather Harry on his page which I have not seen and of my great grandmother Martha. Is it possible to get access to open this picture, please? We do have some other family connections which could be passed on if they are of any interest.

Kind Regards

Sue Cabrelli (and Mark)

My aunt, Edith (Edie) Smith ran a wet fish shop in Cottingham in the 1950s. Do you have any information on the shop and/or my aunt? She was unmarried, born about 1915.

[After discussion with David, this reference was to Cottingham, a village in East Yorkshire, not the one in Northamptonshire. The two villages are often confused particularly by people who are not resident in either! - Ed]

I believe you have an error on your Red page for John Nosworthy born 1808. You have his death in Carleton Place. He dies in Thomasford on 18 Oct 1865. I believe you picked up the wrong location due to an error on my Ancestry tree for Cram family.
I am Christopher Ashby great grandson for John Wesley Norsworthy born 1860

[Will make correction in due course. Thank you - ED]

I came across your site while visiting the TNG Forum on extrapages. May I say, I am so impressed! The magazine theme of your site is very interesting and all the features! I am blown away. I want to study your site and perhaps adopt some of your ideas into my site. I may reach out for help, if that's ok.
Again - kudos sir! I salute your work and attention to detail.

I notice that you have links to the Hopewell family via my uncle Valentine. I have all their dates if you would like them. Also my mother is missing from the family group!

What a fantastic site. Henry Curtis and Emily Jane Steer were my great great grandparents. And it's been wonderful finding this site and reading some of your articles. I've been rather clueless until reading this, so thank you so much for sharing these wonderful stories.

I am the granddaughter of Vera Rumbold Kemshead.
She was the daughter of Martha Elizabeth Kemshead & Thomas Rumbold (maybe W.L.Rumbold)
She was born on either Oct 31 or Nov 1, 1903.
I know that she was somehow brought to Canada and can't find how or when.
The information in this shows her mother going to south Africa and her sister going to grandparents but nothing about her.

I'm sure you are aware but I didn't spot a mention of the article by Philip F Rehbock, Joseph Matkin (1853-1927), Rutland's unsung voyager, in Rutland Record 12 (1992)70-79. Besides other detail of the Challenger expedition it includes a transcript of his long letter to 'Mother' from Hong Kong,19th December 1874.
Also, in Rutland County Museum there is a run of Matkins Almanacks from 1892 (missing the first ten or so issues) to 1941 (last one published). They are an invaluable local history resource.

[This refers to the article in the OLIVE pages at: Matkins of Oakham: Generations. - Ed]
