Preparing for another trip to Winchester, possibly!

21 May

I’ve been preparing for a visit to the Hampshire Record Office in Winchester, just in case I decide to go (still can’t make up my mind!)

In terms of research goals for this visit my main priority is to find the parents of my 3x great grandparents William MITCHELL and Susannah POCOCK, who married in New Alresford, Hampshire on the 16th January 1832. I have pretty consistent census information (ages and places of birth) for them, so it shouldn’t be too much of a problem finding their baptism records.

Next I would like to find out some more details on Henry and Sarah WRIGHT (another pair of 3x great grandparents) who lived in Alton, Hampshire. I would hope to find baptism records for some of their children and maybe some clue as to where they were living before the moved to Alton. I also need to check for burial records and monumental inscriptions for both Henry and Sarah, in preparation for a visit to Alton at some stage in the future.

Hopefully I can also find some school records for the children of both the MITCHELLs and the WRIGHTs and try and get some more details on where they lived exactly in Exton and Alton. Then I need to do the same for William Henry and Harriet MITCHELL (2x great grandparents) which I started last time.

That should give me more than enough to be getting on with, but if I do run out of things to do then I can always start on some of the siblings of my 2x and 3x great grandparents, that is if I decide to go of course…!
