Kathleen has Edward, 1910, Frederick, 1909, Ivy, 1906, and probably many more in her tree on here. No place of birth specified.

So this family:
1911 England Census
Arthur Adlard
Age in 1911: 37 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1874
Relation to Head: Head Gender: Male
Birth Place: Keal Coates, Lincolnshire, England
Civil Parish: West Keal County/Island: Lincolnshire
Country: England
Street Address: Keal Cotes Spilsby
Marital Status: Married Occupation: Farm Labourer
Registration District: Spilsby Registration District Number: 420
Sub-registration District: Spilsby ED, institution, or vessel: 5 Piece: 19849
Arthur Adlard 37
Clara Adlard 36
Walter Adlard 11
Frank Adlard 7
Ivy Adlard 4
Frederick Adlard 2
Edward Adlard 4/12
Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 19849.

As Kathleen has these people in her tree, she obviously knows about them before 1929....

You're very welcome Kathy. :-)


MargaretM Report 17 May 2013 18:40

Since you're new at this, Kathy, perhaps you don't know about FreeBMD:

Since you know from the 1911 census that the parents are Arthur & Clara go to FreeBMD and click on marriages, enter Arthur Adlard and spouses first name Clara and you'll find that she's Clara Annie Bradshaw.


Unknown Report 18 May 2013 15:32

I knew clara she was my granny a iovely personim trying to find arthurs granddad]] haven't got aclue I have him as William but don't know if it is right thank you to all for your help best wishes kathy :-)


patchem Report 18 May 2013 22:15

If you do not know who is who then you need to work from the censuses and from certificates.
if you do not know who Arthur's granddad is, have you applied for his parents' marriage certificate, which will have their fathers' names on it?

If you follow what Margee has told you you get to:
Marriages Jun 1893
Adlard Arthur William Spilsby 7a 1265
Bradshaw Clara Annie Spilsby 7a 1265
and you can then apply for the certificate.


Unknown Report 19 May 2013 15:27
