That death is almost for sure

Christina (Lancashire)

Had looked at that birth and discarded it..Thanks for the information on Ireleth
From the information I have Charles was a General Labourer or a Electric light Labourer

Christina (Lancashire)

Christina (Lancashire) Report 9 Apr 2013 00:35

Could Hannah's place of birth be IRELETH in Lancashire?

I don't have access to check Charles' occupation, but could he have been there for work when his daughter was born?

Iron mining was huge in that area between 1850's to the 1890's, with families migrating from all parts of the UK for work.

The registration district for Ireleth was Ulveston and there is a birth for a Hannah Palmer in 1872, but she's not yours. Her birth reg is on CumbriaBMD ..... ....but her mother's maiden name is Millard.

This is for info on the Parish Church.....

Baptism details held in the Cumbria Records Office.

Might be worth checking to see if there is a baptism for your Hannah.. They hold baptism records from 1865 onwards.

Ok.............i will check back on here tomorrow too.

I do understand how frustrating this is for you.

Looking back, and if we are on the right track.... His Father died in 1855............might this be his Mother's death....

Deaths Jun 1857 (>99%)

Where he was and the other household members.He may not have been with family


PricklyHolly Report 8 Apr 2013 21:31

Fredk.........When you say "I think the the 1861 census may provide some information i require"

And...."The 1861 census needed please"

What information were you hoping to find on that census?


Fredk Report 8 Apr 2013 21:00

Many thanks to all who have helped on this thread. Unfortunatly still do not know where my Grandmother came from for sure .That birth or baptism was critical. Have gained a lot of information on her possible family

Gwyn in Kent

Had not heard about that. It would be the very one I wanted

I remember reading that huge chunks of 1861 census are missing, so perhaps he was lost that way....?


Fredk Report 8 Apr 2013 20:25


Many thanks for your efforts. I wonder where he was. Also thanks for the sensitive infomation you sent me by PM


PricklyHolly Report 8 Apr 2013 20:18
