Hi Pen, Can you please try to find my ggf John Clark (born late 1845) as a youngster in the 1851/61 censuses. Believed to be living with parents and younger brother Richard and possibly other siblings in the Clerkenwell area of London, which is between Islington & the City. An optician in later life, he may have followed in father's footsteps. If successful, please also try to find his father in 1841. Many thanks, Kev

Hello If you have the time would you look for George Davi(e)s Sparks born 1868 in Marylebone London. He worked as a sponge warehouseman . His parents were Elizabeth and George but if you could find him in 1901 it would be great. I think he was in London, pretty definite. Thank you. Kate

Hi Pen, thanks for your reply. John Clark was born in Clerkenwell. Had the middle name 'Royal' on his d/c, the spelling of this varies slightly on m/c & on later generations. I'm guessing his father had the same name, at least the same initial. I'm hoping for some Scottish link, as there was a famous 18thC instrument maker called John Clark, from Edinburgh.

Hi Penelope Thank you very much for all the info on Ruler family. I have printed it and trying to put all on my family tree. I know that there were steam train engineers in family so the occupation of engineer of Robert John Ruler on 1851 census fits in. As you say the name must be Ruler not Rider. Thanks Sandra

Kevin

Kevin Report 21 Dec 2006 16:15

That's brilliant, Pen. With a name as common as muck as mine in an area which bred lots of Clarks, the family must have been quite difficult to find. Were all the family born in that area, or just the children? It would appear that John Clark had been previously married before 1841, (as it was common practice in inner London to name eldest son/daughter after the parents). It's also possible that he'd been widowed again before 1861, as FreeBMD records the death of several Mary Anns in that area in the 1850s. Merry Xmas and many thanks for your help over the year. Kev

Hi Penelope, Can you look for a James Sim born 1836c and Ann born 1838c this was from 1881 census. On your 1861 census. Was told they married in 1856 14th June Longside, although I have yet to find their marriage certificate and ann's surname was Henderson. They had one son James born 1857 in Aberdeen. Who I found on the 1881 census there was several other children but they are born from 1867 onwards all at Aberdeen, there is a large gap in the childrens ages so assume there are more. James was a lucky find to be living with them at 24 years old. Their address was 35, Wellington Street, Old Machar, Aberdeen in 1881. James's occupation was listed as Labr ( at quarry) but have been told that he was also a labourer at Kittybrewster station. The son Jame's occupation was listed as stacker railway. Sorry this is all I have any help appreciated. Thanks Brenda.
