Redbourn Genealogy

I get many requests from people looking for information about genealogy of people who used to live in Redbourn. The truth of the matter is that I have no idea and none of my relatives came from the village. However a few links are below.

From Robin Cox

My grandfather and father were born in Redbourn and I would like to know how many of the Cox family are buried at St Marys. I also am to understand that there is still a Cox still living there. We are inter married to the Stathams and Catlins. I live in Carman, Manitoba, Canada so any help you can give me I would be most gratefull. Regards Rob Cox

From Linda Rice

My reason for contacting you is having looked at your site while researching my family tree I notice that the work on the organ at St Mary's Church is to be undertaken by a Mr Vincent Woodstock Of Redbourn.... My Grandfathers family came from Redbourn and one of them by the name of Isreal Woodstock was the sexton of St Marys in about 1860. I have been to Redbourn and have become very interested in its history. One of my relatives was a blacksmith from Lamb Lane Charles Woodstock.

I was wondering if by any chance he may be related to my family as it is an unusual name especially from the same area. If at all possible would you give him this info and perhaps he may be interested enough to contact me as I have made quite an exhaustive history on the family name

I hope you do not object to me contacting you this way but I thought it might be worth a try, and you may also have some useful info for me as many of them worked in the silk mill

look forward to hearing from you if you have the time

Kind regards Lynda Rice Swansea

From Julian Wraith

Below is the extract from the 1901 census: Name: William Hucklesby Relation to Head of Family: Head Condition as to Marriage: M Last Birthday Age : 65 Sex : M Profession or Occupation: Stock Man On Farm Worker Where Born: Herts Redbourn Address: Westside Common Cottage Civil Parish Rural District: Redbourn Town or Village or Hamlet Parliamentary Borough or Division Village Mid Of St Albans Ecclesiastical Parish Administrative County Redbourn St Mary Hertfordshire

I'm currently doing some family research and was wondering if you could help. I'm looking for a house that is located on the common. The house name is "Westside Common Cottage". In this house lived my great great grandfather and he lived there at least in 1901. I have not yet found a map of Redbourn detailed enough to locate this cottage. Do you know if this cottage exists still and where abouts it is (which road)?
