Hi Peeps me again....

I appear to have lost a relative.... Ms Haystack married a guy somewhere in the middle of England. I think the marriage took place sometime after 1837 and before 1901.

All i know is they had one child Norman Eedle.

Now i need help placing Mr Eedle with Ms Haystack on a census.

Does anyone have these people in their tree... Hot matches has given a few suggestions but nothing really relevant.

Looking forward to your replies ;-)

This might be Norman lol

Births Jun 1874 (>99%)
Eedle Male St. Saviour 1d 11


WayneTracey Report 5 Jun 2009 12:43

Hahaha, how ironic!

Hmmm, see there really is an answer for everything!

WayneTracey Report 5 Jun 2009 12:54

Thanks for that Tania.

I do wonder if he is mine tho?.... I was fairly sure i needed to place N Eedle and Ms Haystick somewhere in Central England?

I'm sure someone said they lived up the hill from a town called Swanny?

Check the IGI plenty of Eedles on there from Buckinghamshire. Not sure if mother is Haystack though lol

lancashireAnn Report 5 Jun 2009 18:02

are you sure they were not from up the Swanee River rather than up the hill

could you define Central England please. To us Northeners that could be Staffs, Derbys etc

I expect a reply within minutes please with the answers!


WayneTracey Report 5 Jun 2009 18:12

Sorry Ann, i was up the creek, looking for my paddles...

I'm fairly certain they were from the dunroaming area?

I have all the details on the other side of the family, the father on that side was interesting, Rocky Horse (Skit to his mates), now he has a really rare name, but strangely very difficult to find...

If only i could find Norman Eedle and Ms Haystack..... they are proving impossible...

Tracey .... ;-)


Julie Report 5 Jun 2009 18:32

Im sorry but have you any proof that Norman Eedles mum was Ms Haystack......or are you going on family gossip

I have looked on all the census right up to 2001 and can't find them anywhere


Julie Report 5 Jun 2009 18:33

Forgot to add...& now im going for a lie down with a bottle of Vodka cos me head is all loopy


WayneTracey Report 5 Jun 2009 18:37

Oh wow you have access to the 2001 census???....thats amazing..... Can you please tell me how i can access that??

Wow thats sooooo cool, please please tell me, sadly it's was family stories that have been passed down, Uncle Jack used to tell me about all the things that happened in the family, but sadly now Uncle Anory has passed onto the other side, and he doesn't have a phone in Scotland.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Tracey xx

Nicknamed Boy Blue I suppose.

You are really clutching at straws with this one.


WayneTracey Report 6 Jun 2009 17:10

Oh Christine....

Please don't say that.... Boy Blue?? You know him then?

...are we related? Please will you open your tree for me??

Tracey xx ;-D

OOOOhhhh - Naughty Tracey!!!!!!

I got 'hate mails' for less than this (tee hee) - I hope you don't get the same.

LOVE your sense of humour.

Best wishes,

Dea Xxx


WayneTracey Report 6 Jun 2009 18:03

Well...yesterday was starting to get too serious, and i figured... what the heck!!!

I've had a few messages, but all are "thats soooo funny".... and i think i've covered every angle we get from noobies and co.

The only thing i've not covered is the ignorances and anger we get...but then this is all about avoiding them and ligtening the mood a little!!!

Glad you like it.
