But now for the real anomalies. The baptismal certs give mother to all his children as "Elizabeth". So where is Jane Ridgeway?
Baptisms:
a) 1816 Mary: Elizabeth "first daughter" of Francis and Elizabeth Shortnall (born 1815)
b) 1835: Ellen, "adult, daughter of Francis & Elizabeth" (born 1818) (presumably "second daughter"?)
c) 1836 20th March: Margaret "third daughter" (born 1821)
d) 1836 20th March: John "second son" (born 1832) (Who was first son?)
e) 1836 20th March: Joseph "third son" (born 1834)
f) 1836 20th March: George "fourth son" (born 1836)

Note that the George born 1836, baptised 1836, is without doubt the same George who died aged 1 in 1837. But we know his mother was Jane Ridgeway who died in 1838.
So it is clear that the recording of "Elizabeth" as mother to ALL the baptised children is a clerical error. Perhaps Francis gave mother of Margaret, the eldest to be baptised, as "Elizabeth" and the clerk recorded them all as of same mother.

Gaye = Until I found the Shortland website on the Net I did not know there were any other Shortlands other than my mother and Frederick John Shortland who, by the way, spent a few years in the Bucks and Oxon Light Infantry as did his father. John Shortland, the Patriarch, must have put in at least 20 years since he was a pensioner when he died.

I estimate Frederick John Shortland would have joined up between 1883 and 1885 or a bit later. I believe he played in the band and when a small kid I found parts of his uniform and brass band instruments in their house in Wycombe. I wonder if the term "drummer" refers to a member of a military band, not merely one who played a drum.

From: Norm' Ford
The discovery by Colin of the cottage "Stepping Stones" at Lacey Green rather than Speen, Bucks and that my grandfather Frederick John Shortland's second wife was called May Holland is a big step forward. I still believe my mother referred to her as "Nan" but many Shortland family members appear to have had nicknames. For example, F.J. Shortland's first wife Emma was often called "Bob" and the kids called her Auntie Bob. My parents almost always referred to me as "Mac" rather than Norman. So that may explain the name "Nan".

Colin's report about the various Shortland military records topples my belief that Frederick John Shortland served in the Bucks and Oxon Light Infantry. He was definitely in some kind of military service. Most likely in the same "militia" as his father. I always assumed that "militia" was another word for "Army". If not, what was it?

First, I am positive that Frederick John Shortland did not serve in World War I. He did tell me that every summer his military unit went to Ramsgate, Kent for training. Could he have been in the territorials? As far as I can remember, he played a bass (a brass instrument) in a military band. He also played in a Salvation Army band.

Email from Norm to Nick Shortland:
Nick - Great to hear from you and Thanks so much for the Shortland website address. I was stunned by the treasure trove of info about JohnShortland and descendents, my mother never mentioned him or the fact that her father was one of his dozen children.
My grandfather John Frederick Shortland was one of the children of John Shortland (1832-1916) and Eliza Olive Harman and he was born in 1865and died in 1945, in both cases at High Wycome. Some of the bio infoon the website isn't quite correct.
John Frederick Shortland was married twice. First time in 1897 to Emma Miles of Penn Bucks (birth date unknown, died about 1933). They hadtwo children, one of whom died in infancy and the other, Jessie Shortland, born 1891, died around 1969, was a schoolteacher then a housewife. She married Frederick William Ford of Windsor in 1916. I am their only offspring, Norman Dennis Ford, born Jan 1921 at High Wycombe and still here.
After Frederick John Shortland's wife Emma died around 1933, he retired and lived with us for two years or so in Wales, then returned to High Wycombe. Then in his early seventies, he married a lady whose firstname was Nan, probably in late 1930s. Nan had a thatched cottage called Stepping Stones and I believe it was located about 7 miles north of Wycombe, perhaps near Speen.
In 1940 while on leave from the Merchant Navy I cycled from my parents' home at Gloucester to Wycombe and stayed a few days with a sister of Emma Shortland. While there, I recall cycling to Frederick John and Nan's thatched cottage for a daytime visit and returning to Wycombe.I was then 19.
According to the bio material under John Frederick Shortland on the website, a young girl called Maureen remembers visiting John and "May" at West Wycombe around 1941 and spending a day at their thatched cottage. I don't know who John and May were but the thatched cottage wasn'tat West Wycombe and I don't recall that it was semi-detached (thoughit might have been).
Later, around 1944, I again visited Frederick John and Nan Shortland at their cottage north of High Wycombe and stayed overnight. Nan was gradually losing her sight, probably due to cataracts, and my grandfather walked with a cane due to deteriorating hip cartilage.
The following year, 1945, while I was in Burma my mother wrote to saythat my grandfather had died in Wycombe Hospital of urinary tract blockage. I don't know what happened to Nan.
My father, Frederick William John Matthew Ford died at Gloucester in 1949 at age 59 from a heart attack. My mother moved back to Wycombe and lived in a small flat there, eventually dying of a stroke around 1969 while in Wycombe Hospital.
Forty-one years ago, the fact that they both died from arterial blockage , caused me to become a vegetarian which I still am. I was already a long-distance cyclist and mountain hiker and though I've had to give up long walks due to a knee problem, I still ride a bicycle. A fewyears ago, I toured Western Ireland by bike on my own, overnighting atB&Bs. I maintain a website at www.nohypehealth.org.
Nick, I'll go through a suitcase full of family photos and memorabilia and see what else I can dig up about the Shortlands.
Meanwhile, ManyThanks Again for all your help. = Best Wishes, Norm'Ford.

This handsome medal was purchased for an unstated sum from an Australian collector by Rupert's great-grandniece Gabrielle Shortland, resident Cork Ireland, and is now in her possession."I could not believe it," says Gabrielle, "when the medal was advertised on the internet at the very point I began to research my great-granduncle's life. I believe that Rupert intended me to have this medal."
