Hi Cathy

Thanks very much for looking for my Masons in St George Hanover Square. The marriages will certainly be useful....I appreciate you finding them for me.

Thanks again.

Hi Maggie

Have checked the actual death indexes from 1894 to 1901 when the mother appears as a widow on the census. There is nothing apart from a Samuel Willimott in the March Q 1900 age 74y (which is probably to old) Horncastle (wrong area).
So i checked back from 1894 to 1890 as Samuel wasn't actually on the 1891 census with his family and still nothing.

Many thanks for looking this up for me Cathy it is much appreciated. Shame about the baptisms but I may need to go to Westminster Records Office to see (as I strongly suspect) if their children were baptised at the same Church.

Again many thanks

Hi Jonathon
Can you give me a rough idea where in London



Christine Report 2 Jul 2008 20:37

Hi Cathy
I am very interested in St James, Clerkenwell records. my ancestors name: Whitcombe & Rowett I would love to know if either of these names appear in the 1551-1754 Records.



Johnathon Report 2 Jul 2008 20:45

Hi Cathy

Err, not very good cos i'm from the North, it's all just London to me. LOL

The daughter Mary Ann was baptised at Trinity, St. Marylebone, London as per IGI. In 1851 they lived at Somers Town, St Pancras, Marylebone, Middlesex.

Hi Jonathon

Have checked the marriage registers of St Mary le bone as that is where the daughter was baptised and can find no marriage for a Thomas Oliver to a Mary. I don't have any baptisms for that parish.
