I am Trevor Gidman, born in Cheshire, living in Sussex, England with my wife Mae who was born in Scotland. This is a hobby for my retirement and I shall be happy to enter into correspondence in relation to your own branch and to look for answers to questions about other branches.
When I make a material change to a web page I shall put the date at the top of that page.
The latest is a clarification of a marriage in Sweden on “Where they lived”.
I now have the name back to the reign of Henry 1V - see Our Name page.
I have all the pages for the decennial censuses from 1841 through to 1911 but a few families are not in one or another of them; a number have been found incorrectly transcribed and there may be more.
My database now includes all England and Wales and Scotland registrations up to the latest computer records available to the public:
From 1837 as follows:
Births to 2005 numbering 1,643 - Girls 785 and boys 858.
I have a few children born between the 1901 census and 3rd qtr 1911 for whom I cannot compile a line, nor for their descendants, unless I am given the mother’s maiden surname or the 1911 census family.
If any one has certificates covering this period I shall be glad to receive the details shown on them; I should then be able to return a tree of the branch concerned if requested.
Marriages to 2005 of which there are 1282 including second marriages. Some spouse surnames are on the Marriages page. Please ask if you want to know who was married, when and where.
Deaths to 2004 totalling 1146. See analysis on the Deaths page.
Events prior to 1837 have been culled from various sources such as the IGI and Parish Registers but obviously these are incomplete. Currently there are about 500 births and 200 marriages.
