Hi Jenni - welcome to the boards. It's a few years since Isabel posted on this thread and she doesn't seem to have used the boards since (only 6 posts under her name and they all seem to be on this thread).

You could click on her name to send a direct message - she'll be notified of it if she's kept her account details up to date.

Isabel, I've just stumbled across this post in my own research. Joseph Milson and Agnes Jeffrey were my great great grandparents it seems. I'm just wondering if you found out any more? My great Grandmother was Henry's older sister Harriet!


Isabel Report 14 Nov 2010 12:25

Yes that's the one. I also came across a marriage for a Gertrude Hall in 1917, Sheffield to a Arthur Coggan. I do believe she did get married after giving Margaret up. So sad, but you never know what went on did you. Thanks for that

Thanks, I will save this to see if it matches up with anything else

In case it helps, Tinsley comes under Rotherham West Yorks - I see the birth you mean:

Births Mar 1915 (99%)
Hall Margaret Hall Rotherham 9c 1545

Hi Jan, it's more complicated as I think Margaret was illigitimate! I have managed to find out that her mother was called Gertrude and I think that Margaret was taken in and brought up by a family called Poynter.

Wow, you lot are very good at this. I can start to piece bits together now. The Australia part will be more difficult but I will come back to it. I know he definitely ended up there as I found his application for permission to remain in Oz after discharge from the British armed services in 1945.

Thank you all

If you want to find out more about Margaret, might be an idea to get the marriage cert as it's such a common name (watch out for that Milson spelling when ordering certs):

Marriages Dec 1932 (>99%)
Hall Margaret Millson Rotherham 9c 1697
Millson Henry Hall Rotherham 9c 1697



Isabel Report 13 Nov 2010 16:07

Thanks for that. There is this thing with the spelling like lots of other names, can be spelled either Milson or Millson. On Geoff's bc it is spelled with two.

Just to clarify Jan's post - Jeffery is the mother's maiden name.
