Hi I have just been prodded into action again after quite some time doing my research, I don't have access to 1911 census and am wondering if anyone can help me out with Thomas Anderton, wife Henrietta both born around 1880 probably living in Smethwick would love to know an any info, address, and children etc. Also can anyone find dates for deaths for Thomas and Henrietta (her maiden name was Hunt)?
Thanks in advance
Gerald's wife Karen

Thank you that certainly looks like the ones, intrigued by Mary Ann Seymore, does it say if she is a boarder or anything about her?

I've found this death but it's in Kings Norton, Worcestershire.

Henrietta Anderton, born 1880
died A-J 1916
age 36
vol 6d
page 142


Can't find one for Thomas yet but I'll keep looking.

That could well be Henrietta's death, the registration district for Smethwick was Kings Norton, if so she didn't have too long a life after the last census, and all those young children too, but I suppose that was very common then, she was my grandfathers sister so maybe at last I have found out about another family member - thanks.

For what it’s worth - In 1911, Mary Ann Seymore, the boarder was a widow and born in Bromsgrove, Worcs. Y.O.B c1849.

She's not jumping off the page in any other census.

A Public Family Tree on ancestry has this information ...................




Thomas Anderton
Birth Apr 1880 in Handsworth, Staffordshire, England
Death Jun 1927 in Birmingham South, Warwickshire, England


This is presumably the reference they have used .........


from freebmd

Looking at the 1911 image.........i think that "Charlotte Gertrude's" age of 1 has been amended to read..........age 2 months.

And on closer inspection..........i think she is actually..........

Births Jun 1911 (>99%)
Anderton Caroline G King's N. 6c 435

Does anyone else agree with that??

SylviaInCanada Report 1 Mar 2013 21:02

This is the ancestry transcription for Charlotte

Name: Charlotte Gertrude Anderton
Age in 1911: 2/12 <<<<<<<<<<<<<
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1911
Relation to Head: Daughter
Gender: Female
Birth Place: Smethwick, Staffordshire
Civil parish: Smethwick
County/Island: Worcestershire
Country: England
Street Address: 68 Bampton Rd, Smethwick
Registration district: Kings Norton


looking at the image ........................... whoever filled out the census form first put 1 in the male age column, the scribbled it, and put 2 months in the female column

SylviaInCanada

SylviaInCanada Report 1 Mar 2013 21:06

He also first wrote Caroline (or ?? Carella) Anderton, then crossed out Caroline, and Charlotte Gertrude was written in, in what looks like a different hand ............... definitley a different pen


Similarly, the name of the Boarder was first written as Mary Ann Seymour, then crossed out, and the same different pen and ??hand wrote in Mary Ann Seymore

SylviaInCanada

SylviaInCanada Report 1 Mar 2013 21:10

and yes, that birth registration does look like hers


Births Jun 1911 (>99%)

Anderton Caroline G King's N. 6c 435



The 1911 Census was held on the night of Sunday, 2 April 1911



If she was 2 months old, that looks as though she was born in February, and registered after April 1 (June quarter being for registrations in April, May and June)

did they change her name, or did one of them not know what they were calling the new baby? :-)
