1/6/1849 Temperance Ring, femme de (wife of) Mr George Bartlett, 59 years of TB
Death notified by Janet Bartlett, present at the death, her mark (so presumably illiterate)

Hope this is what you were looking for.

No luck so far with your Saunders/Martyn marriage but I only had time to do St Helier today. I'll try the other parishes later next week.

Emily Fox was the infant daughter of Henry and Amelia.

15/8/1909 Emily Amelia Fox, 3 weeks, died of 'Bronchile capillaire' (my French isn't good enough to translate but pretty obviously something wrong with her lungs), notified by Amelia Connor, present at the death.

Looked up the birth just to be sure

14/7/1909 at 8, Pier Rd, Emily Amelia, daughter of Charles Henry Fox, Journalier (day labourer) and Amelia Esther Maud Connor.

Hope this is what you wanted

Had a quick look through the St Helier deaths for the period but no Salmon deaths at all.
I'll try the other parishes later next week

Thank You. Very much appreciated.

Thank you Pam. Much appreciated.



Louise Report 29 Jun 2008 14:17

Hi Pam,

Thankyou for the speedy response. So looking at the dates Emily must have been one of their first and like so many back then did not make it to adult hood. I can't thank you enough as she is another one to add to their 14 other children.



Gina Report 2 Jul 2008 21:55

I couldn't find anything in the parishes so I went back to St Helier and extended the time frame a bit in both directions.
I found a George William Salmon who died between Jan 1968 and Dec 1969.
There is an Ellen Elizabeth Salmon between 1973 and 1974. I think this is yours because the Archive also hold a record of probate for the same lady giving maiden name Hutchinson.
I could not find any records for Brian at all.
There are very few Salmon deaths, the only other ones I found were
Ann 1937-1939
Frank 1951-1953
Katherine Ella 1953-1956

I can look up further details of George and Ellen but as it means going to another office it will have to wait for another day.



Gina Report 3 Jul 2008 16:39

Hi Pam

It does sound like my George and Ellen. I would very much like any other info regarding them both when you have the chance. Can you also get the Probate details?



jerseylily Report 3 Jul 2008 16:51

OK Gina - I'll do my best

I think there were probate records for both George and Ellen but some were closed.
The George that had probate records lived at 72 Bath St, St Helier.


jerseylily Report 4 Jul 2008 21:42

I have found the birth reference for a Thomas Henry Williams in St Helier between 1/8/1891 and 29/12/1892.

I need to go to another office to look up the full reference but I'll try and get on to it next week.

Worked back a bit and found a marriage for a Thomas Williams, again in St Helier between Nov 1887 and Sept 1891. Cross-referencing it the only Esther who seems to match, (same page number) is Esther Elizabeth Laugee.

Again I'll look up the full details next week.



Carter Report 6 Jul 2008 10:00

pam thanks so much
when i have spoken to a family member the name Laugee is very familiar - they even suggested it (although pronunciation raised a few laughs it sounded more scottish than french !!) before i told them so this sounds very promising
thanks once agina for your help it is much appreciated

Katherine Report 6 Jul 2008 13:21

Hi Pam

Thanks very much for the kind offer of lookups in Jersey. I am trying to find the following (please tell me if this is too much work):

Death of Thomas Neil probably between 1871-1881 as he is on the 1871 census in St Saviour but I can't find him in 1881.

Marriage of Tom Albert Neil to Helena (or Elenor) probably not long before the 1871 census as she is 21 on that census and they don't have any children at that point. They are in St Martin on the census but she gives her place of birth as St Brelade. If you find the marriage do you think you could look up Helena's birth for me.

Births of Tom and Helena's children. From the censuses I have:
Elenor c1871
Priscilla c1872
Ada c1873
Albert c1875
Bessie c1877
Henry/Harry c1878
Grace c1881
May c1883
Edmund c1884
Walter c1886
Ivy c1890
Donald c1895

According to the censuses Elenor was born in St Martin and all the others were born in St Helier. If you find any others, that would be great.

Very much appreciated

Hello Ann
I have looked through the records for all 12 parishes plus the non-conformist churches.
The only Fitzpatricks I could find in the right time frame were baptized at St Mary and St Peter's RC church and did not include a Catherine.
Out of interest they were
Simon 1814
John 1815
Peter 1819

Parents Simon and Ann (formerly McMahon)

10/9/1969 - George William Salmon, aged 76, retired.
Cause of death - myocardinal infarction due to coronary occlusion, arterio sclerosis, chronic pyelonephritis.
Informant was the funeral director, J Barette Le Quesne

20/10/1973 - Ellen Elizabeth Hutchinson, widow of George William Salmon, aged 63.
Cause of death - liver failure
Informant was the funeral director, Dennis Pitcher.

I haven't had a chance to go back to the Archive yet to look up the wills, it may have to wait until next week as we've people visiting this week.

If you've got any other clues about Brian I'll give him another go at the same time.



Gina Report 8 Jul 2008 16:01

Thanks Pam

Your a STAR. No rush with info on the wills, so whenever you get a chance. As for Brian, i am stumped. I have always been told that he was reasonably young when he died as he had severe brain damage. Not sure whether he died before his parents or not?



jerseylily Report 8 Jul 2008 16:02

Hello Carter
Here (I hope) is the information that you wanted.

Marriage - Jan 3rd 1891
Thomas Williams, aged 20, Bachelor, Drummer 1st South Lancashire Regiment, living at Fort Regent (army barracks at the time) born Sutton Lancashire. Father Benjamin Williams, Blacksmith
Esther Elizabeth Laugée, aged 18, Spinster, Domestic Servant, living at St Andrews, born St Helier. Father John Edward Laugée, Labourer.

Birth - 8th Nov 1891 at 25 Pier Rd
Thomas Henry son of the above.
Informant Eliza Smyth of 12 Pier Rd, present at the birth. (I think she was a midwife as I'm sure I've come across that name before)

The Laugée family are on the 1891 census where oddly Esther is down as being single (might have to check that marriage entry again, maybe my French let me down!). I can check the parents births and marriage if you want as they occurred after 1842 when formal record keeping began over here.

All the best
