I've spent the last few days with the happy-sad mode on. Wandering around in new families hoping to find a link to another particular as yet unproven family. Did so but not the one I was looking for until I searched birth records for a child recorded as being in this particular family via census & marriages. Neither FreeBMD nor GRO has her except as the child of another family/ Mother. I finally found her Baptism at St. Stephen, Upton Park, Essex. Wondered perhaps if there had been an adoption.? 6 yrs after her brother was born. I had found a lovely spouse for her & his name almost matched the family name I was looking for just slightly different spelling & wasn't from northerly parts of England which is what I was hoping for. Her Uncle meanwhile, I had settled with spouse & family up to 1939 until I discovered he had died in France in 1917, the year after he arrived there "either KIA or died of his wounds" after being listed as 'missing' . I don't quite ken from the burial order note whether he was found & buried or not found but named on Arras memorial. [see below] Sadly, he leaves another mystery, which I won't ever chase up as it is their private family matter, & ends in 1945 'Jampias' anyone heard of it? re:- 1501: Far East: Malayan Volunteer Forces, British POWs in Borneo; Death Certificates; A to L. On a lighter note, during all of thse searches which meandered all around the place, I was intrigued to see on one 1871 census, a family of 10 living in/at 'Lamb Barn'. in a Surrey district. Family health matters have held sway with my adventures of late, so today after a visit to hospital to check his cataract surgery results, I'm hoping for a softer afternoon, perhaps extending these families a little more.
