Gillian ......... just a note

Thomas Humble Robson born 1st 1/4 1849 in Northumberland.


This just means that his birth was registered in the first 3 months of 1849 .......

................... he could have been born late in 1848.


Mothers then, as now, had 6 weeks in which to register the birth of a child.


You would get the actual date of birth, as well as the mother's name, from the birth certificate.


you really do need to buy that certificate

Mike that's what I posted earlier...and a;though I didn't say it I did wonder if he was a daughter's child. Mary Robson as posted in 1861 is annotated on A as Mary Mitchell but can't find anything to connect her in marriage to a Robson

What Mother's maiden name not available before 1911...means that ALL births after 1911 will have the mmn stated. It was not backdated! So only way to find parents names is buy the certificate

According to trees on Anst his mother was Sarah Oxley

but she married Thomas Shield in 1849 so can't see why a child born 1848 would be Robson

Yes Mary - here it is:

Would have been better to stay on that thread.

Gillian - If you use the "My Threads" link on the left of these pages then you quickly get back to your previous threads and add an updated request so we don't go over old ground.

I posted it before to get the info I now how, when I noticed he was with Thomas and Sarah, I believe they have a child born the same year, then I read that Mother's maiden name available after 1911 and I wondered how I got that, but as you say need to send for certificate xx Thank you xx.

Gillian Jennifer Report 4 Feb 2013 18:51

Umm, blonde moment, you see this Thomas Shield had 2 wifes, and 3 children out of wedlock, 5 children with Isabella and 6 with Sarah. Thomas Humble Robson was born out of wedlock, In 1851 he is with Thomas and Sarah, 1861 with a family called Mitchell first described as a border but in later census's same family listed as Step Grandson, and I believe a cousin on another one, so very confusing.

He's with Margaret Mitchell as a boarder in 1881 and 1891 and 1901 as well

HeyJudeB4Beatles Report 4 Feb 2013 18:46

But Sarah and Thomas were married in 1841 - if it's the correct Sarah! So he wasn't born before - he was born 8 years later!

He is apparently a child born out of wedlock and I know who the father is but not the Mother.
