Do you know that they survived long enough to appear on later censuses?

Hi Reggie,

And thank you - does Violet in the 1901 census appear in the 1911?

Also, I know William Wood (1836) had a daughter named Lucy born 1877. Can you spot her in the 1891? There are two /probable possible deaths for William Wood (one being 1881 and another after 1920). Finding Lucy in the 1891 should eliminate on or the other. Lucy was born Newton House, Ugglebarnly, Yorkshire. With a birthplace like that she will hopefuly be easy to fnd!

Cheers,

Peter

Thank you for this! So kind of you!

PS George Cockerell Wood - his paternal grandmother was Ann Cockerill who married Joseph Wood.

Ahhh, so that would explain it!

Also, can I ask for William Wood (born 1836 in the 1911) - just to help confirm a death I found in 1916?

Finally, William's father, Joseph Wood, my direct ancestor, was last living in 1871 in Castleton, Danby, North Yorkshire as a butcher. I can't really find a death for him. He was born c. 1806 in Bilsdale, and married Ann Cockerill (she died in 1849 in East Barnby from consumption). I can't find a marriage or a baptism.

I'm also stuck with searches for his daughters Jane (born 1844) and Mary (born 1848), both in Dale House (an inn), Hinderwell, North Yorkshire, where Joseph Wood was an innkeeper.

Any help with that is appreciated also, but regardless thank you for all the information so far. Highly appreciated!
Thank you again!

Hi Argyllgran, yes you have found the correct ones! He is in 1861 with his daughter Mary. I loose her after that, and Jane before that!

Would love to find them and a death and baptism for Joseph!
