|susan Hall||Samuel Trevaskis born 1862 died 1938|
Hi. I am having difficulty finding any registered death notice or where he may be buried or have notice of death ie cremation of the above. In my husbands family on his fathers side Samuel Trevaskis born 1862 died 1938(we are assuming this as relatives speak of such a thing happening). Our Samuel had been a Church School Master and previously been living and teaching in West Brom and then moved back to Cornwall. He has lots of family members living in Cornwall and he himself along with others were born in St.Erth We think it might be the Samuel Trevaskis who unfortunatly took his own life at Goonbell Alt train lines near St.Agnes Cornwall. I have found a newspaper notice of this incident in a local newspaper in 1938. But there was no mention of his wifes name identifing him. If this is our Samuel his wife passed away the previous December. Other family members of our Samuel including Hugh Kennedy Trevaskis and his close family are buried in Rusper. Kind Regards
|Norma Miller||Graveyards in Wigmore|
I wonder if you could please help me with the grave yards in Wigmore. My family lived in Wigmore for many years. I do not know where they are laid to rest. If I knew the name of the church or grave yard I would search for them. This is what my cousin who was there said to me. It is a church on the out skirts of town. A very small church and you had to walk down a lane to get to it. It has honey suckle all around and that was all you could smell.She said there are people buried in the floor and her cousin played the organ while they visited there was no church service going on. Not even sure they were having services at that point. She said when they went to the ruins of Richard's Castle where my grandmother played you could look down and see the graveyard as well as my grand mother's home. Can you help me with this? Some of the names would be Williams, Davies, Morgan's Shaw's maybe Matthews? I am hoping for the name of the church. Thank you so much for any help or suggestions you may give.

Sorry about my blooper regarding the Grandfather. He was Thomas Hyde Villiers (1801 - 1832). See his entry in DNB. He had two children, both christened 'Lawrence'. The son lived as Rev Charles Lawrence until 1876. His lifetime dates were c.1830 - Q4 1893.
|rroughan168||RE: Charles Hyde Villiers|
See: Find A Grave Memorial# 80652267
This man was born Charles Hyde Lawrence, son of Rev Charles Lawrence, and grandson of William Hyde Villiers.
The Rev applied for a Royal Warrant for a Change of Name to Villiers, granted by Q Victoria in 1876. The Rev's subsequent children were christened Villiers and their older siblings, although born and christened Lawrence, took advantage of the upgrade.
I believe the 'Villers' part is tied up with the full title, not name, of the aristocrat in the family, but I stand to be corrected on that.
The website thePeerage.com ignores the Lawrence issue and refers to the Rev Charles simply as Villiers.

The contributions for Charles Hyde Villiers and his wife both need adjustments of the husband's name.

I'm happy to transfer these Maitlands to you if you wish. No connection to my "tree", just an interesting headstone.
