I am unable to trace the Parents and Grandparents of John Peake listed in the 1911 census as being born at Croft, Moss Croft, Lancashire.
Occupation .. Labourer Paint Shop

Also listed in this 1911 census and living at the same address, 47, Rydal Street, Earlestown, Newton le Willows, Lancashire was Eliza Peake aged 87, Widow, Mother to Head.

John Peake married Martha Kempster in 1896 at Oswestry, Shropshire.

Martha Kempster had a Son, Harry Kempster out of wedlock in 1883/4
Martha Kempster was born in 1865 at Maesbury, Oswestry Shropshire.

I need information on previous years of the Peake and Kempster families PLEASE

I see that John`s Parents are named DEAK and not Peake

is this correct or a mispelling by the censor ?

There is an anomolly here whereby

Alfred Harry Kempster was actually born Harry Kempster to Martha 1883 and so cannot be brother-in-law to John Peake unless of course the other Alfred Kempster born at West Felton in 1884 was related to Martha.

Can you possibly unravel this

Thanks .. Brian
