I am trying to find out about my fathers side of the family, as I know nothing about them. My father was Jack Walker, his Mother was Elenor Walker (nee Roundhill) and his Father was Leonard Walker but that is all the information I have. My father passed away in 2000 and have no other way of finding anymore information.

I know that my father has 2 maybe 3 brother and 1 sister, I know one of his brothers is called Dennis but do not know the names of his other siblings

Any information would be much appreciated. .

On my Dad's birth certificate it says Elenor

PricklyHolly

PricklyHolly Report 17 Feb 2013 20:11

Maybe she was Elenor but preferred the name Nellie as her "nickname"?



Wendy

Wendy Report 17 Feb 2013 20:14

those names definitely look familiar, if that correct they had more children than thought. They weren't a close family which is probably why I don't know much about my Dad's side. Thanks for this

Wendy

Wendy Report 17 Feb 2013 20:19

The only thing that isn't correct is Jack Walker birth month, he was born in March 1928.

PricklyHolly

PricklyHolly Report 17 Feb 2013 20:22

Does it give Leonard's occupation on Jack's birth certificate?



Wendy

Wendy Report 17 Feb 2013 20:23

I've just spoken to my Mum she is going to have a look now.

PricklyHolly

PricklyHolly Report 17 Feb 2013 20:25

He might have been born in March 1928.....(The first Quarter) but his birth was actually "registerd" in June 1928 (The second Quarter)

Wendy

Wendy Report 17 Feb 2013 20:28

Mum's just looked at his birth certificate and was registered in April. His mothers name was actually Ellen Roundhill. Leonard's occupation was Engineer Fitter.

PricklyHolly

PricklyHolly Report 17 Feb 2013 20:40

That would be correct then. You had up to 6 weeks at that time to regiister a birth.....so even though he was born in the first quarter (Jan Feb Mar) of 1928.......his birth was registered in the second quarter (Apr May Jun) of 1928.

I hope that makes sense!

Wendy

Wendy Report 17 Feb 2013 20:42

Yes that makes sense. I'm new to using this site, still finding my round it with very limited information.

Do you have any idea of when and where your Father's parent's died?

Wendy

Wendy Report 17 Feb 2013 22:10

I have managed to get quite alot of information about my fathers Mother and Grandmother but I don't have any idea when they passed away as it was quite a few years before I was born and my Dad never spoke about them.

(Mary.......6 children born, 4 living 2 had died)

It's been crossed out but for William it states.........2 children living, 1 had died.

I wonder if Mary is the Mother of the 2 Pitts children on the census.
