1911 census say this couple Frederick/Elizabeth had no children

Hi Chris
I found that birth and death which was a pain as it still leaves me with holes on his life and origins. He was certainly born in Ramsey but the family there seems to be most of the inhabitants! Will keep looking as hadn't got to the local society but no records for Ramsey on FSO or Hugh Wallis.

That one looks more promising Maddie if we are sticking with his father being John.


Anita Report 4 Sep 2013 13:25

Hadn't tried Fred! BUT I followed a Frederick in census who fits with mother Mary from Whittlesey and and that Fred's father is called William which contradicts the one in the marriage above who is John. :-0

Trying to find Fred in 1871, also his marriage to Elizabeth Harvey or Hanley of Borrowash Derbyshire.
He is in Ramsey with parents 1861, missing 1871 and with James Harvey and family as son-in-law in Borrowash 1881/1891/1901.Separate post relating to his possible daughter.
Name has lots of variables with census writing but I've missed him somehow!
Thanks for reading and any help.
