Glentworth Hall
published by R R Champion on Thu, 02/05/2019 - 10:51

I have found a telegram dated May 1940 from Glentworth Hall, I am thinking this is or was a hotel in Weston S Mare, would any body know as to where it is, or even still about, I also have a story written by an ancestor as though he is looking out at the sea, he then gets picked up and taken to Banwell Church.  I am trying now to put the two together and then go to Weston to take some photos and put the two together.  Many Thanks for any help.

Wadham Street Baptist Weddings - Update
published by Pat Hase on Mon, 29/04/2019 - 12:20

Thank you to those who have sent information about weddings which took place at Wadham Street Baptist Church, Weston-super-Mare.  I am attaching the list as it stands at the moment.  If you have any more weddings to add I should be delighted to receive them or if you can see any errors in my transcriptions please let me know. 

I have only extracted the newspaper items from the papers which are online so if anybody has spare time in the library they might be able to fill in some gaps from the papers which are on film there.  Thank you!

PORTER, BINDING & MASON
published by Pat Hase on Thu, 18/04/2019 - 18:04

A link to this blog about William Henry MASON & Amy Emily PORTER and their family certificates was posted to our Facebook Group. It is such an amazing story about a find of old certificates relating to this Weston and Uphill family that I believe you may be interested in it.

Gnr John EDDINGTON RA & Gnr Patrick O'NEILL RA
published by Lorna Gibson on Wed, 17/04/2019 - 22:43

Found in our loft in South Road WsM were two WW2 metal name tags. 1587512 Gnr EDDINGTON J and 1594405 Gnr O'NEILL P. I have found basic records and both were in the Royal Artillery, attestation 1940. It states that John EDDINGTON died in 1953 but I have not found a record.

I wonder if either of these men came from a local family. It would be good to be able to return the tags.

Finding locations of marriages from GRO Index
published by Pat Hase on Fri, 12/04/2019 - 0:05

In compiling a list of marriages which took place at Wadham Street Baptist Church - I have been adding the GRO index for each one.  I know that a system for identifying Churches from the GRO Indexes has been worked on by the Guild of One Name Studies - Marriage Locator.  I have a marriage which I know was at Wadham Street Baptist on the 19th Jan 1882 registered in the March qrt of 1882 Axbridge 5c 812 and another which took place on the 19th March 1882 registered in the same qrt of 1882 Axbridge 5c 816.

Does this mean that marriages on Page Nos 813, 814, & 815 were also at Wadham Street?  Or as a registrar was present could these marriages be a mixture of non-conformist locations?  Any suggestions as to who might know the answer?
