Hi Debs Guess you had no luck finding my George Knight born Lincoln Lincolnshire about 1801 Ch. 16/2/1801 St.James Grimsby Lincoln. I do know he was on th 1851+ 1861 Census for Bulford Wilts as Born Lincoln and on the 1871 Bulford Wilts Census age 70 as a Pauper but after that unable to find him the same goes for his Wife Mary Ann Knight (nee Frances) born about 1815 Warminster Wilts no record of her found before or after these dates. I am hoping this information helps you to find them now perhaps on the 1841 and 1881 and 1901 or maybe their death has happened. Much appreciate any help. Thanks Dawn

Hi Debs, Could you please look up my grandfather William Hillery Collings, family, I think around the Wanstead area. He was born about 1878 and had 3 brothers, George, John and Charles and 2 sisters Edie and Lillian. All would have Hillery in their names. Very new to this and am trying to work backwards to find my GGfather George and GGmother Louise Crosdell.


Joanne Report 23 Nov 2006 00:55

Hi Deb! RE; Bridet MgKeginey/ McKegney / Mg Gegney I think you found listed the addres as Chruch street for the 1861 census and her father James as a Labourer. It seems to match her marriage certificate (the writing is very unclear, but this looks like it could be). And the names match for the rest of the family on the 1871 census. So Yeah! I Think that's them!!! And with the name variants you found I will be able to have something to look for! BTW James occupation looks like Atkali or Alkali Labourer on the Marriage certificate. As I mentioned, the writing is very poor. Anyone have a clue as to what that could be? Thanks again Deb! This is fantastic!!!! Joanne

Could you look up the 1901 English Census - for Lydia Evans (Husband Alfred Arthur) or Lydia Wiltshire (Husband George Henry). Looking for a female relative that appears on the 1891 Census and not the 1901 so I think she may have married and these are I think potential.. Lydia's details as follows:- Born 1866 Torquay, Devon England (Maiden name Davis)
