how stupid of me ...i gather annie,harry,stephe,robert were henry's siblings?


Quinsgran Report 26 Feb 2011 02:37

Hi Sherbit.
Yes it appears Henry had those other children
His birth cert does not give a fathers name as suspected

As for posting it in this site you wont be allowed because of copyright. If you wanted someone to "see" it you would need to click onto members name and ask them for their e mail address.

However you have given all the details already



Quinsgran Report 26 Feb 2011 02:38

Henry born 1880 and Annie had those children Annie, Harry ,Stephen and Robert as well as Alice,Rose and Leonard

You are probably tired and need to go to bed. This hobby is so addictive

Im in New Zealand

I noticed those marriages were posted on the thread earlier and Alice Prescotts fathers name was George Prescott occ butcher. So yes these must be siblings of Henry

Possibly when Alice was asked her fathers name she said George and it was assumed his surname was Prescott


SherbitShandy Report 26 Feb 2011 04:00

ok no probs......they were the ones who gave me the info written above its me who cant take any in lol

New Zealand , long way from Scotland where i am , beautiful place NZ

Good these pills, fall asleep at 10 pm and wide awake now aghhh

On page 2 Dea posted a 1891 census with Emily and the 3 girls so it looks like they are his sisters...dont know where Henry was though??

Did'nt you say to me SS that the birth cert did say Pescott not Prescott?

I dont think that Annie to John cooper is yours that marriage took place much too early

Infact she may not have married this death ties in with her birth

Name: Annie M Pescott
Death Registration Month/Year: 1924
Age at death (estimated): 41
Registration district: Barnet
Inferred County: Middlesex

Here are Henrys three siblings births

Births Mar 1882 (>99%)

Pescott Emily Islington 1b 382

Births Sep 1883 (>99%)

PESCOTT Annie Martin Islington 1b 411

Births Jun 1885 (>99%)

Pescott Alice Islington 1b 223

On page 3 it looks like Annie is with her father George Martin in the 1901 census


MaureeninNY Report 26 Feb 2011 14:31

I think a few of us breathed a sigh of relief at the results of that birth cert!!!!

If he'd turned up as the son of Harriet and Job Pescott or something,you may have heard a groan around the world.



Dea Report 26 Feb 2011 14:35

Ditto Maureen !!!

Dea Xxx


MaureeninNY Report 26 Feb 2011 17:58

Don't ask me why I've looked at this $$. (curiousity?)

Pescott, Annie Martin
buried on: 5 Nov 1924 recorded at: Islington Cemetery (Islington)
(age 41)

Burials in the Burial Ground at Finchley.
Last abode was Colney Hatch Hospital.

So,no,she never married.


Shoot-long thread. So sorry to our Chris if she'd found this already.


jax Report 26 Feb 2011 18:13

Oh at least I picked the right one. I did doubt it as Barnet is'nt near islington

It seems that only Annie and Henry were given the Martin middle name, so maybe the other two were not fathered by George? or Emily forgot to add it?
