Hi there, I live in Australia so don’t have the privilege of visiting Bisley very often, so I have a proposition: About a year ago I did a Y-DNA test with the US company Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) and looked for matches in their website. I was disappointed to see that there were no matches, until I...

My problem re Restall photographer was resolved by the 1911 census, Stonehouse at that time not only had a photographer but his father was a hairdresser/tobacconist. The query arose after a Canadian lady purchased a framed photograph at a garage sale which had on the reverse F. J. Restall, and Son....

I'm looking for any information (including photos) for a location called Toadsmoor, Bisley. In particular, I'd like to know if there was a mill along the river in this area - 19th century. Thank you!

Last Post by Karianne Fisher 8 years 2 months ago
There were several small mills on the Toadsmoor brook at the western boundary of the parish. They were usually regarded as part of Bisley rather than Stroud, although some of them were undoubtedly among the unnamed mills assigned to the Chamberlaynes and Windowes at the partition of the Stroud manor...

I have tracked my g g g grandfather Obediah Hunt [b. 1827] back to Bisley but the legions with that surname in and around the area make it difficult to see who might be related to whom. He was born in Tunley, which I assume is/was part of Bisley, although it does not seem to be on any modern map. His father...
