Kinghorn research in Westminster

13 Mar

A day off from work enabled me to make another visit to the City of Westminster Archives Centre in London in search of more information about my 3x great grandfather Thomas KINGHORN.

It is quite strange to think that although I only came away with one new “fact”, it was all things being considered quite a rewarding and enjoyable day. I still do not know where the children from his first marriage were baptised (or if they were) but I do know where they weren’. I am running out of options now, and may do better to wait until ancestry.co.uk release their London records collection (supposedly starting early 2009). It doesn’t help that I cannot find birth registrations for the last two children, who were born after 1837.

Still at least I now know where Thomas KINGHORNs first wife was buried, St James Church, Westminster on the 6th September 1846. Also I discovered the whereabouts of No. 5 George Place (the address on the death certificate), it was/is in Cross Street, Westminster, so there is another address to add to the list of places to visit and get a photograph of.
