Susan Report 14 Feb 2013 20:17

I'm looking for my GGranddad's parents. My G Grandad was called Charles william Smith born Humber Hull yorkshire, 1864 on his birth certificate his parents are Thomas and Eliza, Eliza's maiden name being Carr.
I looked for a marriage for Thomas & Eliza, the only one I can find is 1866, Borough Camden.
With all this info, you may ask what is the problem, well I can't seem to find any census of the family at all, I've tried Yorkshire aswell as london. Hope someone can help. Thanks Sue.

Does Thomas have an occupation on the birth certificate?

Who did Charles Willam marry so we can look for him after marriage?

Thankyou for replying. That's all the information I have on Thomas & Eliza and they don't have second names.
The only census I have ever found on Charles William smith is the 1911 census he's married to Ada and lives in Grimsby.

Thankyou so much for this info BUT as I said at the start I am looking for charles william Smith's parents only. I think I have found their marriage certificate but NO census at all. I'm thinking could they have left the country and only Charles returns. I'ts a thought. Again thankyou all so much.
