On your original query you said Henry William's father was Henry Oaks Bradford yet this marriage gives a father Charles (deceased organ builder).

What was Henry Oaks Bradford's occupation?

On your Ancestry tree you have an 1891 census attached for a Harry Bradford Ironmonger's assistant, who is single. Which is incorrect - the marriage or the census?

Henry Oaks Bradford on the 1871 census as a wood turner joiner but the 1881 census states he was a shoeblack. died in the Middlesex Hospital in 1883

The Gair family where in the main organ pipe makers, some made pianos, and given that Hannah Johnson married into the Gair family. am pondering on if this is where I should be looking for Henry William.

My grandfather John Bradford shows his fathers name as John dec'd, occupation though was a wood turner, I am wounder if Henry William found himself in a similar position not know his father name, but maybe he had lived with Charles as some time.

The father of both Henry Oaks and Charles, William Bradford was either a wood turner or joiner in all census.

Just putting ideas into the melting pot! to see what other people think.

Hi all who help in sorting out Alice Hawkins Inskip:

I was able to tell my sister Peggy who her morther was, that she was the illegitmate daughter of Elizabeth (Lizzy) Inskip, rather than the daughter of George and Elizabeth Inskip. Infact Lizzy went on to have a second child, before marrying in 1920.

I sadly have not been able to trace a death for Alice Hawkin, but may be if we belive in an after life Peggy will be able to answer her own questions as she died in Southend Hospital on the 19 Sept 2012 following a fall at home the previous week.

I was at least lucky to have known Peggy for a few months, and will be able to treasure the memories and time spent with her.

Still on the trail of Henry William Bradford, but seem to be going round in ever decreasing circles.

Thanks once again for all help

Eileen. :-(

Hi all.

Have just received a D/C for a Lily Alice Hawkins, who died in 1971, it sort of makes some sences but more contradictions than facts, her date of birth is given as 17 Mar 1912 - my Alice 17 Feb 1911. place of birth Wickford Essex- Poplar East London. Occupation Housekeeper, at time of marrige worked as a Domestic Servant, would appear to be single aat time of death. deid at place of work 25 Westleigh Ave Leigh-on-Sea, home address 6 Oaken grange Ave Brightwell. Informant Arthur Hurbert Brooke (possible employer!!!!!)

Have trawlled the births records for a Lily Alice! with a time scale of 1910-1915 a very large number of people, no records I have looked make any senses. will you just look at what I have to see if this is the correct death, I know while it is to late for my half sister my newphew Steve would still like answers if at all possible.

Hi All, I have now discovered why Alice Hawkins Inskip is called Hawkins, it was possibly from her father unknown, but I am now able to rule this out, it is via her grandmother Elizabeth Sarah Stevens, Her mother was Ann Hawkins, so for what ever reason she ended up having her great grandmothers maiden name as her second name.
