Sarah Report 27 Sep 2013 21:53

Hello, I'd be very grateful if someone could do a census lookup for Henry Summers c1866.
I have managed to find his children, one of them being my Great Grandfather William, born at Stone Row, Moira, Leicestershire. Siblings Amos, Reuben, Ernest W,John, Sarah and Harry.
Henry married Sarah A. Dennis. I would like to find out who Henry's parents were and if they came from Moira as I believe he did and trace his line back further.
My Gran says her family knew him as Harry.
Thanks

His marriage certificate would give you his father's name and occupation which may help find them on census records.

Thanks for all your research everyone! Would love as much help as you can give me! Checked with my Gran and she is certain Henry married Sarah Dennis...she can't always remember exact names, but when I can give her a clue it comes flooding back. She is 85 now and enjoying finding out about her family history. I would be interested to know what Sarah's maiden name was....
