Third name maybe Nelson
but check this on 1911

HOUSEHOLD ATKINSON GERTRUDE F 1883 28 Sedgefield Durham

HOUSEHOLD ATKINSON CHARLES S M 1909 2 Sedgefield Durham

HOUSEHOLD ATKINSON WILLIAM F M 1884 27 Sedgefield Durham

those are all that come up in the household.
Do you have credits to look at the image sean??
as the s after charles may well be not what is on the original.

Hmm well william F atkinson is born same place as william F boagey

they have been married 3 years,which is about right for the frank atkinson / gertrude mace marriage.

Maybe he took on the Atkinson name after he left home to live with John Atkinson if he hated his father for beating him!!

FannyByGaslight Report 8 Apr 2009 00:55

Well I would send for this cert using mothers name gertrude as a checking ref,so you only lose half your money if it hasnt got that name on it.
Because if it your charles then you will be able to read it properly.

Births Dec 1908 (>99%)

Boagey Charles Edward N Durham 10a 418

got to go to bed now ,will check back in the morning for the occupation of
william francis the father if you can read it.

edit,,just seen you cant read it,Get that cert,I will eat my hat if it is not the same one as you cant read properly!!

then come back on this thread so misty and I can help out more if poss,but let us know if you get it please.

Last words
I can not see a birth for lou or lucy atkinson/boagey/mace
but she may have had a different father /surname
so without a birth year for her it is not really possible to pin point her
sorry
goodnight

william francis/frank boagey/atkinson etc 1891,but esther is now Mary,and still born in hartlepool.
The strange thing is that on the image william and frank are down as twins,what is being hidden here? as we know they are not,and both have the same first name anyway.
This is definatley the same family as 1901 though.

oooooh well done you, Viv. I did look for the 1891 one last night but had to give up as I couldnt keep my eye's open!!

Looking at both year's, I think maybe John Atkinson had children when he and Esther (Mary) got together and his youngest was called William also...maybe that's why William Francis became Frank.....What a muddle that would be, having two William Atkinsons in the same house!!

Gosh, didnt they like the name Francis/ Frances....

FannyByGaslight Report 8 Apr 2009 15:31

They most certainly did Misty.
What bothers me is the big gap between kids on the 1901,did some die after birth maybe?
I have checked and rechecked for more marriages on esther/mary and john Atkinson and just yours shows.
But for william francis father with esther ,nothing,only one hunter boagey/esther marriage and they go through to 1901.
And where did janes middle name of browell come from?
l am also unable to see a birth of mary esther/esther boagey if she was unmarried when wiliam francis was born.

But one thing I do know that if Boagey had been my surname I wouldnt have wanted to use it!!!
Maybe that is why charles wife wrote all over his birth cert,can you imagine,
hello mrs boagey,and how are your little monsters today?
and the kids at school would have had a dreadful time about other things,well you know what kids are like!
still giggling to myself here,sorry Sean.

hi all just had some info from a very kind gentlman
marrage oct-dec 1888 john and esther but also a marrage
jan-mar 1883 hunter boagley to a esther boagley formaly bayes
mother coming later going to really study birth cert .
going back to the story i wonder when charles told us he went to live with a friend john atkinson it was really his step brother
cant get out of my head about lucy or lou as he called her no record at all on herxx

Mistycat Report 8 Apr 2009 15:56

Viv....that made me laugh,yes of course, never thought of that one...poor little soul's!!

Sean I saw that info on Ancestry( there is a tree on there) but it does not fit, as Hunter and Esther( Bayes) were still married in 1901....so I dont believe it is the same people...Sorry...might be wrong, will go have another look.
