I am guessing Sheba means she is looking for the Edward England ,father of Henry England in the marriage I posted above ?



Reggie Report 1 Mar 2013 16:08

It sounds as though you're using GR...............not the best place for research.

If you'd care to give more info about Edward, someone will help you.........

Are you aware of.........................

It has England/Wales BMD's from 1837 to approx mid-1950's

Most of us use Find My Past or Ancestry to search records. These are sites you have to pay an anual sub to

I guess the speed is down to experience.

If you want help with finding anything else just shout

I almost feel I shouldn't be asking for more help after you have all been so good in supplying me with so much information, but I am intriqued to know how you come back with all this data so quickly. I have spent the last three afternoons working on Edward England to try to get a lead but when I request to view it shows a person not in the right age group at death, or something similar, and I have wasted some more of my credits. It seems to cost a fortune. Am I doing something wrong, advice please. Regards Sheba.

brummiejan - so sorry I have mistakenly sent your reply as a report to the Genes team. I do apologise, you must think I am a dim wit. I don't know whether you can retrieve it, but I will re type it here: Henry England's residence was Green Lands, Colchester Road, Thorpe-le-Soken and occupation Builder. Richard Squires residence was Clissold, Main Road, Holland-on-Sea, and occupation Retired. Both addresses are in Essex. The two witnesses were L.W. Self and R. Squires. I do appreciate all your help, it all seems so easy when you come back so quickly with answers. Thanks to everyone. Sheba.
