Hamble Hampshire Local History Society

Many years ago I used to have a boat moored on Hamble River and I got to know the village quite well, so I was interested to find this website authored by the local history society.

The site has all the unusual interesting pages such as history, photos and meetings, it also has a handy list of links to neighbouring sites.

So if your people came from this delightful village this is the site for you.


Hampstead Parish Records online

clip_image002I have just been looking online to see if there was anything about the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel in Kentish Town, whilst browsing I came across a good website called “The Virtual Tour of Hampstead”. Clicking on the tab entitled Family History I have found the following transcripts.

St John’s Hampstead

Christenings 1737 – 1761

Marriages 1738 – 1747, 1813 – 1815

Burials 1813 – 1816

There are also gravestone transcripts & photographs, names from the War Memorial, photos from Hampstead cemetery at Fortune Green and lots more. The coverage might seem a bit patchy, but you could always volunteer to help transcribe more!

A great website with lots of read.

The Thoroton Society

clip_image002The previous posting about The Nottinghamshire Heritage Gateway led me to this website, The Thoroton Society, which is the leading historical & archaeological society for Nottinghamshire. The aims of the society are to promote knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the history, archaeology and antiquities of Nottinghamshire, and to support local research and conservation.

This looks to be a very interesting & informative website which would be very useful to give a background to Nottinghamshire ancestors. It’s going onto my list of sites to spend time browsing at the weekend.



Aborfield, Berkshire Local History

ArborfieldAn website which will be of interest to all those with ancestors from the Aborfield area of Berkshire. It has a parish history timeline, a page about the families who have lived in the village for generations, information about properties in the village, memories of the village by long time residents and much more. Always good to find a website specialising in “your” village.
