If anyone has access to Ancesrty, would you mind looking up for George Hall b 1877 St Pancras, (14 yrs old) in the 1891 census for me... He is NOT with his parents as his Father died, and his Mother Johanna is living in Hackney as a Housekeeper for her brother in law....I dont have a subscription to Ancesrty, but can see that there are 2 George Halls., both born in the city,London, one residing in Middlesex and the other is in City, London.... Many thanks in advance :-D

Do you have him in 1881 please? Who was his father and mother?

There are a number of George Halls - though most are with parents so Prickles' post above looks good on the face of it :-)

Yes I agree, Goerge's parents were Henry and Johanna - I have them in the 1881 census.. and his Mother in the 1891 census....and I have George with his wife in the 1901 and 1911 census.... I was curious as to where he was and why he wasnt with his mother in 1891

Linda Report 10 Apr 2013 18:10

My George Hall was born in St Pancras though.

How do you know his place of birth and his parents?

Jude

Linda Report 10 Apr 2013 18:20

Jude ,I have his birth certificate and all the marriages down that line (he was my son's great Great Grandfather).... I just find it strange that he is not with his mother in 1891.

HeyJudeB4Beatles Report 10 Apr 2013 18:27

I only wondered because he's not the only St Pancras George I have come across!

The rest of the 1881 family appear to have emigrated to South Africa according to an unsourced tree on Ancestry

Was Johanna a Litton?

And who did George marry?

Linda

Linda Report 10 Apr 2013 18:36

Yes, George's mother was Johanna Litton.... George married Catherine Yeo in 1899 in Barnstaple Devon.....

Linda Report 10 Apr 2013 18:39

I have the 1901 census - her born Ilfracombe him stating Camden.

But he's a night porter now - not a boot riveter.

Can't find the 1911 census?

Linda

Linda Report 10 Apr 2013 18:52

In the 1911 census, they are living in Maitland Park London St Pancras with their 3 sons.....and he's DRILL INSTRUCTOR ARMY PENSIONER....(still doesnt tell us where he disapeared to in 1891 though)

Linda

Linda Report 10 Apr 2013 18:59

Hang about....I've just realised ..on the 1901 census.. it says they have a daughter Teresa G Hall, born 1894 in Ilfracombe.(close to 1891)..thats 5 years before they married, ..so he surely he may have moved down there for some reason?

I can't for the life of me find them in 1911. I wanted to check Teresa G's age as I wonder if that 1901 census giving dob as 1894 is correct. . Catherine would have been very young in that case. Wonder if that 7 is a fancy 1

Can you give some more info on the 1911 you have found ie names of other children. Just to try to pinpoint where George may have been in 1901 EDIT 1891.

Here is a possible birth for Teresa G. Barnstaple is the reg district for Ilfracombe and parents married in 1899.
