Port Of Gloucester Pilotage Inwards 1874-1886

This CD will be of interest to anyone fascinated by maritime history regarding not only the Pilots but the names of ships, places they were registered, their port of origin and the diverse cargos carried into the ports of the Severn estuary.
The Log itself appears to be an account register relating to charges made for Piloting Ships from the Bristol Channel to Gloucester etc  It is a fascinating insight into shipping in the Severn Estuary during this period, and whether you’re interested in the movement of goods world wide, the History of ships, or the fascinating place names where the ships were registered or the goods were loaded, that completed their journey to the ports of Lydney, Sharpness, Gloucester etc. and not forgetting the families that acted as Pilots it is a fascinating read.

This CD contains a full transcription of the register 386 individual images of the pages transcribed, and a short histiory of the Severn Pilots.

This CD is currently not available as a download due to size of content.

A History of the County of Gloucester Vol 4 states that in 1856 a cemetery of 13 acres was laid out at Tredworth but was not opened until 1857 when the old city churchyards ceased.

A Crematorium was built in the grounds of the Coney Hill cemetery and the first cremation took place there on the 7 January 1953. Many ashes were then either scattered or interred in or on Graves in both cemeteries.

St. Andrew’s Miserden: Monumental Inscriptions

 

Survey of Memorials in St Andrew’s Church and Churchyard, Miserden 2014-15.

Introduction.

This database of Memorials is based mainly on their physical inspection and photographic recording over the 12 month period between July 2014 and July 2015. However, it does also refer to four other documents.

1. A hand-written set of indexes of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials at Miserden from 1574 to 1974 which is currently held by the church. I understand that this was probably prepared by a church-warden who extracted the information from the Parish registers. They are remarkable documents, neatly written and organised by date and surname – not a simple task before computerisation. Where relevant I have given the burial date from this index as well as the date of death from the gravestone. They don’t always tally and researchers should always check the original Parish registers to minimise any transcription errors.

2. The “Record of Church furnishings” for St Andrew’s Church prepared 1995-97 by The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS). This provides enormous detail of the Memorials inside the church, including the stained glass windows. A few of the older inscriptions are in latin and, in most of these cases, an English translation is contained in the NADFAS report.

3. Ralph Bigland’s “Historical, Monumental, and Genealogical Collections relative to the County of Gloucester”. This was first published at the end of the eighteenth century but was reissued in the 1990s by Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society. Three pages of this relate to the Miserden inscriptions and they, in theory, list the gravestones existing in the churchyard c1790, but it appears far from comprehensive: there are many current gravestones which pre-date 1790 but which are not listed by Bigland. However there are many listed in his book which no longer exist and, for the sake of completeness, I have included all these in this database. For copyright reasons, in these cases, I have only used the name and year of death (supplemented by the burial date from the register index) and researchers will need to refer to Bigland to see what, if any, further information is available.

St. Katherine Church Matson Monumental Inscriptions

Survey of Memorials in St Katharine’s Church and Churchyard,

Matson, Gloucester. 2015-16.

Introduction.

This database of Memorials is based mainly on their physical inspection and photographic recording over the period between July 2015 and May 2016. However, it does also reference the following documents:

1. The Church burial registers and their transcriptions. It should be noted that there are occasionally discrepancies between the information in the register and that written on the memorials. The registers do contain information in some cases about the location of the grave, cross referenced to the churchyard layout plans (see below).

2. Ralph Bigland’s “Historical, Monumental, and Genealogical Collections relative to the County of Gloucester”. This was first published at the end of the eighteenth century but was reissued in the 1990s by Bristol & Gloucestershire Archaeological Society. Two pages of this relate to the Matson inscriptions and they, in theory, list the gravestones and memorials existing in the churchyard c1790, but it may be far from comprehensive. There are many listed in his book which are no longer apparent and, for the sake of completeness, I have

included all these in this database. For copyright reasons, in these cases, I have only used the name and year of death (supplemented by information from the burial register) and researchers will need to refer to Bigland to see what, if any, further information is available.

3. A plan of the old churchyard originally “revised and renumbered” in Easter 1940 by the Rector, Francis H Charles and subsequently updated through the years, although it has become clear that some of the subsequent additions have not been plotted with any accuracy.

4. Other sketch plans, supplied by the church, of the location of modern graves, using the
modern burial register number.
