Hello Beverley, seeing as it's a couple of years since Frances last posted on this thread she may not be checking for replies.

You could click on her name to send a message and hopefully exchange information.

Me too. I think you have to imagine how the family might have said their name. Being strong Yorkshire voices. Could be Ogsworth, Ockswith, Ogswuth, anything really. Will have another look.

Don't give up!!

Someone else may be able to spot them for you. :-)

Frances Report 9 Oct 2011 23:05

Thank you PricklyHolly but that was not the reply I was hoping for! I have been working on the family all evening and found all the Chadwick side back to c.1806, when they also fade.

Births Dec 1866
Chadwick Elizabeth H Huddersfield

but I cannot see him in any census in G.R. before 1901, to find his family.
Is he just one of those census shy people or has he had a name change?

Can anyone help me please?

Many thanks,
