The family can be traced back to Sandon, Chipping, Buckland, Wyddial and
then Cottered all in Hertford. Mainly they were agricultural labourers. Our
Great Great Grandfather parents Frederick and Eliz had 10 children - only 1
died. 4 boys - still researching, but believe they married, one at least
had a son killed in the First World War. Two girls were in service in
London and outskirts.

Frederick (referred to above) was the son of John and Sara. This
complicates things a bit as, of course, our grandparents were also John and
Sara - also another John and Sara were around in Hitchin.

Sue has copies of Church Registers that go back to the Banns and marriage of
William Ambrose (1779) to Elizabeth Tingey in 1803.

Frederick was in charge of the farm horses (it's on his death certificate),
and Eliza couldn't write but always 'made her mark', the two of them are
buried in Cottered churchyard, John too but I haven't yet been able to trace
an entry for Sarah in the record office and the vicar didn't seem able to
find one. Sue has a copy of Sarah's death cert for 1956 for Weston,
Stevenage registration district.

Our three times Great Grandmother Sara was a witness to a manslaughter case.
A neighbor "bopped" his wife and she eventually died, he got off.
At least two Ambrose's were in the Union Workhouse, one born and lived
through to his death

In Wydial in 2001 Sue met and talked to Mrs. Hewson in her 80s who was an
Ambrose before marriage, she lives pass the church, left hand side, she is a
twig of ours.

No one was on the transported lists for Hertfordshire Ambroses.

In 1900's the house where the Ambrose's live in Buckland was destroyed by
fire - thatched roof caught fire when a neighbour across the way cleaned the
hot ashes out of the fire - wind blew ashes.

The Vicar was recorded in the Parish records that a terrible fire broke out
in 1807 in Chipping. It costs a 100 pounds to rebuild the two cottages.

There were Ambrose's in Hitchin at the same time but no connection has yet
been made. John in Hitchin was publicly whipped for 100 yards from Hitchin
marked and jailed for one month for stealing half + peck of beans and peas
At Herts R.O. they have the Buckland School Log - Sue had to read this
propped up on a cushion, as it was so fragile so couldn't be photocopied.
The following was an entry: 1875 John Ambrose punished for stealing and
eating some of the children's dinner. Henry Class III and Martha Class V
receiving first price for Writing and Spelling Exam, these were the children
of Johns Uncle who lived and worked at Wydial.
