Member’s Meeting – John Titterton – Using Wills in Research
October 25 @ 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
John will be on Zoom.
John was born and brought up near the Midland town of Stafford and went to University at Imperial College in London. By profession he was an Electrical Engineer responsible for keeping the lights on in central Southern England. He has a MA in Local History. He was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in the 1990s.
He started researching his family history as a young teenager. His full name is John Edenzor (pronounced Enzor) Titterton and at the age of 14 he saw his own obituary in the Staffordshire Advertiser. None of his relations had any idea of who this other JET was. It took 13 years to fully solve this puzzle and wills played an important part in finding the solution.
John will be talking about what can be learnt from the different parts of a will. The talk will include a discussion about the contents of three or four wills and how it is possible to combine information from each to build up a larger family tree.
He writes articles on heraldry, local history and family history.
This will be a hybrid meeting where members can either join the meeting in the room or via Zoom.
