Concerning a duel on the beach at Calais fought with pistols.
Heaton Champion de Crespigny (1796-1858) was my second cousin five times removed. He was the son of Sir William Champion de Crespigny (1765-1829), the second baronet, (who accused his coachman of stealing his harness). 1n 182...

Phthisis seems to be the reason for the emigration of one branch of my ancestral line. The Australian climate would have been much better for sufferers than England. Did any of your forebears die from TB?
My fourth great grandfather (4*great) John Plaisted (1800-1858) died of phthisis, more commonly known as tuberculosis. In early colonial days the disease was a part of daily life and few families were lucky enough to avoid it...

In writing this post I realised how little I knew about these women and their marriages. Not one of them married young - was that because they were from Australia and looking for husbands in England or was it because they were content not to be married until they found the right husband.
In 1895 my great-great-grandmother, Ellen Jane Cavenagh-Mainwaring (1845-1920), wife of Wentworth Cavenagh-Mainwaring (1822-1895), was widowed at the age of 49.  Of their ten children, six were daughters and five of these wer...

A useful approach as to how to rationalise research effort
As a project manager, I am used to assessing and managing risks. I will determine the biggest threats to my project, assess how likely they are to occur and how much of an impact they would have if they do occur.

Hi Claire. It turns out he hadn't previously married, Eliza was Tabitha and they were co-habiting. It was very confusing - see my later post.

Hi Hilary and Erica, thanks for reading.
I think even the rich have a right not to be robbed despite the obviously enormous disparities in wealth. The issue is then what are the consequences. There needs to be a deterrent but what is appropriate. I guess George Bowyer stole perhaps the equivalent of a mobile phone, hard to think of a modern equivalent. While financially we might be able to lose a mobile phone, and the very rich even more so, we would still feel violated and may wish to prosecute so others are not similarly violated. The case of William (who was only 24) and his coachman is perhaps similar to the case of Nigella Lawson's personal assistants. The Grillo sisters "were found not guilty of defrauding Lawson and art dealer Charles Saatchi of 685,000 pounds ($1.26 million), saying there had been an understanding they could spend anything on credit cards if they kept quiet about the chef's drug taking." I myself cannot see that an employee can spend that sort of money and consider it a perk of the job. Nigella Lawson may have been able to afford her personal assistants spending but that does not make it right. The court obviously considered all the evidence and found otherwise. In the case of William's coachman there was obviously reasonable doubt about the terms of engagement and the legitimate perks of the job. William's evidence would appear not to have been impressive.
Regards
Anne

Court records, in this case the Old Bailey records, can provide details of your forebear's lives if they were a witness in a crime.

Using motor car registration indexes I was able to learn about the cars my great grandfathers owned.
Two of my great grandfathers, Arthur Murray Cudmore (1870-1951) and Constantine Trent Champion de Crespigny (1882-1952), owned motor cars quite early in the twentieth century. They both lived in Adelaide, South Australia. The...

I think my dog dreams about chasing rabbits. Sometimes you can hear the excitement of the chase.
