how in heavens name do you all do this ,its so hard ,the mind boggles how you all figure this out....nightmare i could'nt ever add to the tree without all your help


SherbitShandy Report 26 Feb 2011 23:02

Jax,just notice you asked me if cert said Pescott or Prescott....Henrys says Pescott


jax Report 27 Feb 2011 00:24

Wonder why Henry decided to adopt Prescott as his name rather than Pescott?

I take it you have access to records on here SS ?

I could carry on finding more bits and peices for you but dont want to spoil your fun if you want to find them yourself.

Just let us know what you are stuck on and we will try to help

stories my gran told me about my dad leonard,unscrupulous,,would have slit your throat for a penny etc may have run in the family & maybe why they changed from Pescott to Prescott...there again my gran (mums mum) was very bitter at the way he treated my mum so it could have been a bitter old womans rants or the truth?

(catches up!)

Things looking good... nice find Maureen, surprising what's turning up on Deceased Online, Frederick and Emily Devan are there too, (will stick details on later) there are quite a few Prescotts which probably relate as well down the line :-)

(I spoke to a very nice man at Olympia yesterday, and am awaiting free credits for that site, lol, will come in handy here!)

St. Pancras Cemetery.
Emily Devan buried 4th April 1950 (age 68) 9, Barham Close, Wembley, Middx.
Frederick Devan buried 7th April 1930 (age 53) 168, Prince of Wales Rd. St. Pancras.

It may be worth while paying at deceasedonline to see who else is in that lair with Annie Martin Pescott. I can't remember offhand how much it costs but it isn't very much.


Just had a look 30 credits cost £3.00 and for 15 credits you can see who is buried in that lair.


MaureeninNY Report 27 Feb 2011 13:22

I did check out the other burials in Annie's grave. It appears to be a common one. (18 other people!)
(Note to Chris-I'm green with envy. Olympia,nice man AND free credits!!? Humph! I)
