  • I saw the recent post about Watsons and Bagleys. Both families were prominent on the island earlier in the1800s. I have copies of lists of inhabitants from the 1830 time frame, that list these families. I would be happy to share if you send me an email. (ecs7fg@^$1) Ed of Falcon

  • The British Library has a program. I am not familiar with the full extent, but I have looked at the subjects relating to St. Helena. It seems to have resulted in scanning documents that are in particularly deteriorating. there are about 30 subjects, of perhaps 200 pages each, on the island issues. this includes correspondence, as well as records of civic meetings, many of which...

  • AJMM was a periodical about British Interests, principally India and the like. Since St Helena was on the route, it was also (briefly) included. Some issues have notices of Births, Marriages and Deaths. Here is an example from the 1826 (volume 21) edition: "At St Helena, Capt. F. MacKenzie Bengal N. I. (native infantry) to Mrs. Ochterlony" Occasionally, there will be a little...

  • I am replying to a note by Mars about the ethnicity of St Helena residents. I have spent time going thru the BMD records of St James church slightly. I have seen a couple of clues to ethnicity. First, the records seem to be integrated. That is people of European and African descent are mingled in the list. Many of the entries have comments about the parents. There are four...

  • I am replying to the message asking about where a race might be indicated. I can say that this is only indirectly implied in the baptisms (also perhaps marriages and deaths) Many entries note that the parents are either slaves or emancipated. The relative number of inhabitants, slaves, free and soldiers in baptism will also provide further clues about the makeup of the population...

  • Kevin Sykes provided, recently, some information about records of St Helena that have been scanned and digitized by the University of Witwatersrand and made available. I have a copy of the "List of Inhabitants" (LOH) so I thought I would look up and example (too much time on my hands) I have the 1832 list and I looked at the 1833 and 1834 inhabitants (roughly 180 years ago) I could...

  • I am replying to the message 1006, from Warren Smith. I looked in the 1829 "List of Inhabitants" for St Helena. There are no Mulligans listed. However, there are three Masons; Benjamin, J. B., and Miss M. there is also a William Everton. Ed of Falcon

  • Greg Greg mentioned that he knows someone who will be on the island for a few months. If this person is interested in doing local lookup for a reasonable fee, this might be a way for us offlanders to get some research done and the visitor to make a little extra cash. they would have to have had some lookup experience.

  • Archive.org has some texts online, including a list of Inscriptions on Tombs of burials in India. By Cotton, 1945. Since many people spent time in St Helena as well as India, there are some instances where there is a reference to a person from St Helena. For example: Thomas Greentree, son of a member of the St. H. council, died in 1840 (& was buried in India.) There are a couple of...
