I would be very interested to hear from anyone who was a pupil at Aston Ingham School 1949 - 1953. The teachers at that time were Miss Ellis and Miss Ryder, Headmistress, (marriied name Gould) At one stage there were only 20 pupils, 10 in each class. I visited Aston Ingham in 2009 and was delighted to see that this beautiful bulding still stands. (Tho now a private residence)As does the village hall where we used to have our school dinners which were cooked by a Miss Herbert. She produced the best school dinners ever, on 2 stoves.

I am researching my maternal family - all of them born and bred in Ross. Does anyone know where I could find a burial plan of St Marys? I have spoken to the vicar -she cannot help and I have spoken to the Herefordshire record office and they cannot help either.I have managed to find a few of my family,but,having such a huge family, I'm sure there must be plenty more there waiting to be discovered.

Do you have any family records for george thomas corbett or siblings around the 1860 era please. I wish to establish family movements including his immigration to New Zealand around 1870, I cannot discover his arrival on shipping passenger lists around that time, so I'm attempting to uncover the family movements. I believe his father may has been the Ross on Wye stationmaster around that period.

I am researching an ancestor who is believed to have come from Ross-on-Wye during the second-half of the c18th. He was probably born in 1764. He was a non-conformist apothecary called Ebenezer Pope, who married a lady from Clifford nearby. Does anyone know of or have a 'Pope' ancestors from this town? I am unable to trace any birth record for him.

My family on my mother's side have links with Ross on Wye, with surname Hill. It appears they were plumbers/glaziers living in Broad Street in the 1820-1840 period. Thomas Hill married Mary Ann (Webb?) in 1830 in Bridstow. Thomas Hill and James Hill were cited as plumbers in Broad Street in 1830 edition of Pigot's Directory. In the 1840 edition, Mary Ann Hill (and James Hill) were described as plumber/glaziers again based in Broad Street. She was still there in 1851 census. We are trying to track down birth date of Thomas and names of his mother and father. If anyone has any suggestions, I would be happy to receive them. Thanks

I appreciate it is a long shot, but does anyone by any chance have a photograph or illustration that might include 27 Edde Cross Street in Ross-on-Wye please? I have had a look on Google Street View, but it seems it has long since been demolished. I am researching the Lewis family, who once lived there in the early 1900s.

Thomas Brain Green
Families:
Green - According to his 1859 obituary in the New York Herald my 3 x great grandfather Samuel Green (father - Philip Green)was born about 1812 in Ross. The family emigrated to NY in 1844. I've searched the baptismal records for the local church through the LDS films with no luck. Do you think there are any old Green family members still living in Ross-on-Wye ? Any help would be much appreciated
