Hi there,

I am looking for James Swales in the 1871 census - he was born in Stockton, Durham or Thornaby, Yorkshire in 1842. His wife was Margaret Cooper.

I'm only looking for him in the 1871.

Thank you

Peter

Thank you for you help here - this research has not been carried out by myself hence, why I am working through it slowly. The work I was sent has not been referenced also.

Ahhhhh.

Can we see James in the 1861?

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it

Shirley~I,m getting the hang of it Report 3 Dec 2012 11:34

That 1871 one looks promising because of his occupation which ties with the 1881 info.

How is his wife's maiden name known as theres no marriage to a Margaret Cooper

It is good to see we are not the only ones to get confused with these complicated families - still, piece by piece. If it is ok, I'll look into this in a bit. Need to get some food etc.

Peter........

When you say..........The work i was sent.......and.......These complicated families......

Who's family is it??

Peter

Peter Report 3 Dec 2012 23:48

My own family - a cousin of my ancestor. And the info was sent from a cousin doing wider research. Why?

Madmeg

Madmeg Report 4 Dec 2012 00:01

Why do you think he married Margaret Cooper? Do you have a certificate to prove this?

Margaret

Peter

Peter Report 4 Dec 2012 01:28

As I say, it was sent from notes sent by another researcher. I don't know why. I assume they have made a mistake.

Peter

Madmeg

Madmeg Report 4 Dec 2012 02:22

So what we need now, Peter, is the birth certificate of the most relevant child of James and Margaret. I assume your relative has worked backwards from known information, so there should be a child who is know to be his grandparent or great granparent.

Do you have the name of that child? And an approximate (or exact) date of birth?

Margaret
