Hi...

My mother's great grandfather, Oliver Dyson was born in Clare in 1850 and his wife, Mary Ann Bentley was born in a poorhouse in Haverhill in 1854. In the 1871 census, Oliver is living on Well lane with his parents (Oliver & Anne Dyson) and siblings. He is a shoemaker. Mary Ann's an 18 yo domestic servant living in the household of 73 year old Ann Price on 25 Callis St.

They were married in 1872 in the Clare Parish Church. Their daughter Ada was born in October of 1872 in Clare. I am uncertain of the place of birth of the rest of the children (Isabel b.1874, Oliver b.1876, Arthur b.1880, Gertrude b.1883) except my great grandmother Alice Mary Dyson who was born in 1878 in Northfleet, Kent and her younger sister Mary Ann who was born in 1885 in Lewisham.

Around 1886 the family moved to Ontario Canada. I have been unable to locate the Dyson's in the 1881 British Census in Suffolk or Kent and would like to know where the family was in 1881. I suspect it was in Kent somewhere but why did they move and why did they emigrate to Canada?

I am also looking for information on the poorhouse where Mary Ann Bentley was born (3/12/1854). Her mother's name was Emma and her father was unknown. I suspect that Mary Ann was illegitimate. How long did Mary Ann and her mother live in the poorhouse, what happened to Emma Bentley and who were her parents?

If you could identify resources that might be available to answer some of these quesions I'd greatly appreciate it. My sister is stationed at Lakenheath AFB and has been reseaching the family tree further back. If there are records available, I'm sure she could stop in a take a look. Thanks for your help.

Sincerely, Debbie Baker, Terre Haute, Indiana, USA

Hi there my name is Karen...

I've just started tracing my ancestors. In the 1851 census I have 4 ansestors listed as living in Clare they are:

* William Sorrell (age 50)
* Sarah Sorrell (age 52)
* Mary Sorrell (age 14)
* William Sorrell (age 9)

The address given is Hill Farm, Cavendish road, Clare, Suffolk. By the time the next census was taken they had moved again but Mary had disappeared so I'm assuming she married, could it have happened while she was still living in Clare.

It would be great if anyone could send me any info on this.

Thank you...

Hello, my name's Russell Ince.

Earlier this year my parents and I began researching our family history, inspired by both the BBC's TV show 'Who Do You Think You Are?' and our own long-standing curiosity!

So far far we've had a lot of luck, thanks to a John Ince from New Zealand; his fantastic research has taken our family tree back to the 17th century and to the town of Clare in Suffolk. Our oldest known ancestors are a John and Elizabeth Inch, born circa 1660. It seems that our surname changed, however, from Inch to Ince in the early nineteenth century whilst our antecedents were living in the Suffolk/Essex area.

I was wondering whether anybody could help explain why our surname changed? Also, if anybody knows anything of the Inch/Ince family in Clare and Essex, we would be extremely grateful for their comments!

Thank you...

Hello... My name is Lou Bell.

My Great Grandfather Alfred Jolly is listed as a publican and butcher of the Cock Inn, Callis Street, Clare in 1912.

He died in 1927, being a Master Butcher by this time.

Would anyone have any old photos of The Cock Inn around this time that you could share with me? Did he sell meat over the counter or would he have had a separate shop?

Thank you for any help and advise you can give me.

Hello, I am trying to track down more details about my father's (now 88) maternal grandfather.

He was John (Potter) Hammond. His birthplace is given as Clare; in the 1831 census he is living with Elizabeth Hammond (sister?) and others surnames Potter, Goldey/Golding.

In 1851 he was living as a lodger in Calais Street with the Elmer family.

By 1861 he was calling himself John Potter Hammond, was married to Elizabeth Cole Erwin/Ervin/Irwin/Irwin and was the Innkeeper at the Queen's Head, Haverhill. The family then moved to London where he died in 1902.

I am particularly interested in his early life, parents, siblings etc and also anything about his wife. If anyone can help with more information, I would be really grateful....Thank you.

Hi...my name is Barbara Payne and I am tracing my family tree, which has connections with Clare. I recently moved to Cambridge and came to Clare for the first time on Good Friday. I thought it a great town, and was so pleased to see the old station, where my grandmother would have certainly travelled form.

My maternal granmother was born in Clare in 1885 her name was Louisa Parker, and she is mentioned through your link. Her father was Francis Parker and her brother Henry Parker is on the War Memorial. I am interested in trying to find her mother's maiden name and any other information which may be available about their origins in Clare.

I have the same photo of the unveiling of the War Memorial as is on your website, with one of the choirboys marked as being Henry Parker's son Tom. He was my mother's cousin and also had a brother Jim, they are both now deceased. Their mother, Henry's widow, married Henry's younger brother Fred, and had two daughter's with him One of whom Rosie lived in the Clare area for some time and married a Twitchett, Jack I believe, they had a son John.

My grandmother moved away from Clare into domestic service and the 1901 census puts her in Ilford, Essex, but how she got from there to Hemel Hempstead, where she met and married my grandfather I am not sure. She was 'in service' to the Weston family in Hemel Hempstead, but I don't know how she got there. She died in 1974 and her daughter, my mother in 2004, so I have no one left around to ask.

Any way you can help would be gratfully received... thank you
