I agree Mike.

Odd that the family doesn't show up in 1901.

I will take a look on FMP to see if they show up on there.

On the 1911 census Martha Alice says shes 48 and been married for 30 years so that would mean she was born 1863 in Bolton Manchester.Ive just found a death for the same name but the age would be 2 years out.

Death Record




Name

Martha A Howell



Year of Registration

1940



Quarter of Registration

Apr-May-Jun



Registration District

Manchester



Registration County

Lancashire



Age at Death:

79


If she was 79 when she died that would mean she was born in 1861 not1863...

The 1911 census was the first set of census records to be filled in by hand by the public.
Maybe Martha sounded like Margaret to whoever filled in those previous

I'm only trying to help!!!!!........Martha???? Alice Smith married david howell
4Q 1886..using the name ALICE SMITH............which as has been said may have been her middle name..........so can SOMEONE who has more records than elaine try to help her by explaining the aforementioned discrepancy???????

One idea might be that since we can't find them on the 1901 thank you Gitter. my old sparring partner......perhaps he re-married a Margaret in between?????..except the 1911 says they had been married 30 years......well i make it 25.........

Interesting tho innit??
EDIT...Have found david Howell at Worsley in 1881.....unmarried of course

Derek

How can Elaine possibly explain the "discrepancy" when all she has found up to now is the 1911 census?

Elaine

Elaine Report 2 Oct 2012 22:08

Thanks everyone for the help.

Derek I can find them on the 1911 census but nothing for the census before that.I know Martha Alice is the right name because Annie their daughter names her daughter Martha Alice that was my mam.
On the 1911 census it says that David and Martha Alice had been married for 30 years.

Elaine..it would help if you can explain the discrepancy between your 1911 information re Martha Alice..and the two contributions above for 1891 and 1901..which show Margaret rather than Martha Alice???...and Annie aged 13 in 1911..where was she in 1901???
.......then we can move on.

Im not sure if its the new way of finding relatives on here but Im having trouble can anyone help me?? Im looking for the HOWELL family.
Ive found them on the 1911 census but cant find them any earlier.On the 1911 it says.
DAVID HOWELL (56)...dock labourer..born SALFORD.
MARTHA ALICE HOWELL (48) home...born BOLTON
17 IVY TERRACE, ECCLES NEW ROAD, SALFORD.
MARRIED 30 YEARS...

CHILDREN
DAVID HOWELL (24)..single ....born SALFORD
ROBERT HOWELL (22)...single....born SALFORD
ANNIE HOWELL (13)...single......born SALFORD.
It says on the 1911 census that there was 8 children born but only 4 living.

Then there is
WILLIAM SMITH (5)....single...born MANCHESTER.

MARTHA ALICE HOWELL'S maiden name was SMITH. so I take it hes something to do with her it doesnt say what he is on the 1911 census.

ANNIE was my grand mother so I know what happened to her but I cant seem to find any trace before 1911.Can anyone help Id be very grateful as a lot of people have helped me on here with other relatives who didnt want to be found !
