Yes - the Perry's are O.K., but we are hinging the proof on George Martin at the address on 1901 being the same as the address for Henry at marriage when it wasn't 'quite' ???

sorry started looking but lost connection so you outran me.

i did look at fmp address search though

1891 Queensland square was quite posh
few residedents but include marqis of Salibury

1911

more residents per house

occupations include launderess street artist costermonger etc so a definite downturn

(I'm sure I remember looking for a Butcher George Prescott before in the past, not sure of the outcome, seems to ring a bell)

I think Sherbitshandy is going to get confused with all this lot, so maybe we should wait until she returns to see what she would like us to do

If you are saying that Queens Square actually became Queensland Square, then I am happy with all that we have found - George Martin IS, in fact, the 'culprit !!!


Pheeewww !!!!!!!!!!!

I think it would be a good idea for Sherbitshandy to order that birth cert for Henry Martin Pescott and when it arrives we can take it from there???

Poor Sherbit - she won't know her head from her tail at the moment !

Sorry Sherbit!
