red mail Family of John Flower King
John Flower King, born St Albans 1886 to John and Ellen. 3 younger sisters- Mary (b, 1888), Ivy Ellen and Grace. In 1901 was a 'straw hat maker', by 1911 was away from home working as a clothing assistant at Newington, Southwark. In 1916 he married my Great Aunt Mary (always known as May) Philips from Llanelli. They lived at Wood Green until his death in about 1949. I've found some indication that he served on HMS President (London area shore establishment) in WW1, working on communications for the RNAS. He later worked for the Post Office as a telephonist or similar. I knew my Aunty May very well- she died in 1985- and once met one of 'Uncle Jack's' sisters- I think it was Mary. There was a vague family story that he'd been gassed at some point during the war and thus his lungs were damaged and his relatively early death was become of resulting weakness. Although Aunty May and other members of the family spoke often & affectionately about him, I have never seen a photo of him, and would like to know more about what he did during WW1. Jack & May had no children, so the only possible family left would be descendants of his sisters or possibly of siblings of his parents

red mail Hannah Rebecca Beecroft
Researching Hannah (DoB 1848) died in 1914. The 1871 Census shows her at 25 yoa in the village of Frogmore, Nr. St. Albans, Herts. The 1891 Census shows her at 43 yoa in of Newsells,, Herts. Using Find my Past I can find no trace of her on the 1881 Census. Has anyone access to other Census records that might help?

red mail John Tisdall(Tisdale) of St Albans 1660's
Trying to find the marriage of John Tisdall to an Elizabeth who had a son John born around 1663 in St Albans. A Trade Token made in 1667 has John's wife as E = probably Elizabeth, and the record states his son was an alderman. I can't find a John & Elizabeth with a son of John in that time frame.

red mail All Saints Convent St Albans
My sister & I were sent to a convent in St Albans( Anglican) from our home in Newcastle in c 1949-52 . All Saints was an Anglican church. I know all of it's recent history, but am struggling to locate any records. About 10 years ago I spoke to the Mother Superior( now in Oxford) & she was rather vague to say the least. From a number of accounts it seems to have been a 'council convent' who took in evacuates. Another source states it being an orphanage/unmarried mothers home. All I was told was that it was a convent in St Albans. My mother never told us why-but a hunch that I have was that she may have been pregnant to a man who was not my father. I can remember the convent in fits & starts & did have a photo years ago of my sister & I in the playground. I had someone from Herts FH do a few searches for me a while back to no avail. Any info will be welcomed.

red mail Thomas Wesley (or Westley)
Does anyone know the origins of the above, who married Susannah Hill in St Albans in 1790? He was said to come from South Mimms, but there is no family of that name from there.
