Hello Mary, I would like to know if you are able to find the surname Bannock in Canada. I know of a large family in Toronto, but their name originally was central european and they arrived there about 1920-30. If this search/request is impossible, I do understand. Thank you for your time, Derek in France

TARA STYCH Could you give me his sisters name and when you think she may have gone to America or Canada. and even perhaps her husbands name. Also I would say as it was the 1950's this information may not yet be available, It could be possible to trace his death. but would need some more information. The American records are Vast Mary


Mary Report 9 Nov 2006 18:54

LINDSAY Without knowing where he possibly went I don't think I can do this search. If he went to canada or America it is also possible that all or any of his middle names were not registered. I would need some idea of where to search.. I have had a quick look in America and there are loads of Norman Stewarts/Stuarts/etc. it is also possible that he is still alive. Mary

Hi Mary, Thank you for your kind offer. Could you please look for James Holvey, born circa 1828 England, who arrived in USA 20 March 1866. I would be grateful if you could look at the 1871 Census Ohio for me. Thank you. I am hoping it gives where he was born in England as Somerset. Elizabeth

PATRCIA HARPER So Sorry Ancestry does not have any later census records other than the 1911. I could search deaths and marriages if you would like to give the names etc. But have to say unless they were around the Ontario area it could be quite difficult. Mary


Mary Report 9 Nov 2006 20:22

CHRISPY HI AGAIN Can you tell me if you have her and her parents on the 1841 and if so where. I have tried loads of different spellings on the 1851 but none coming up with father john. do you know when John and hannah were born Mary


Mary Report 9 Nov 2006 20:58

GRAEME HARRISON They marriage you gave me is between a Henry Hardman Harrison and a Sarah Ellen B Graham Not Cable Are you sure this is her Maiden name . Regards Mary


Mary Report 9 Nov 2006 21:01

ABIGAIL WHITMARSH So Sorry Abigail, but there is no access to this record you would have to buy the death cert to get the parents names Mary


Mary Report 9 Nov 2006 21:08

LYNETTE Iam sorry but Ancestry births start at 1837 I will certainly take a look and see if I can find any record of her before 1871 when she married Your Thomas. But She may have been married before and Neal may not be her maiden name. (Just a thought ) Let me know what you think Mary

Hi Mary. Thank you for looking for Jane Race and family. I do not have them in 1841. I have just looked on the 1837online site at the 1841 index and could only spot a jane Race age 5 All Saints Northampton. Don't know if this is her or not. As far as I know, John Race was born in Hardingstone Northampton or so it says in the 1881 census where he is 67 widowed and living with a married daughter Elizabeth 29( so she wouldn't be in the 51) census. Apart from that I am stumped. Jane was married by 1855 so the 51 census was my best bet for finding her and family. This is not a lot of help is it? Chris

Hi Mary Re Maria Neal Thanks for your effort I will have look for other avenues to try and locate her birth. Regards...Lyne

Thanks Mary!


Lindsay Report 10 Nov 2006 16:16

Hi Mary thank you anyway! I really have no idea where he went, but I have a feeling he wouldn'y have dropped his 2 middle names. Guess I'll have to keep hunting for the needle in a haystack!!!

Hi Mary, Since my message I have been e mailed by someone researching Jane Race and family who tells me that Jane was staying with her grandparents in 1841 (Budds) and was a servant in a different household in 1851. She says she has tried to find John and Hannah Race (Jane's parents )but could not so unless you have come up with them since yesterday I feel at least I know where Jane was even if her parents have vanished. (they were not dead) Thanks so much for all your efforts. Chris

Hello, I am hoping you can help me. I have become stuck on this. I'm looking for the birth of Mary Linskey around 1858 in Durham. According to census information, Mary may have been born in Thornley or Winalton Durham Also looking for the birth year for two of her daughters: Julia Quirk and Maria Quirk. I think the girls were born about 1883 and 1884, but I do not know which is older. I don't know where in Durham they were born, Perhaps Sacriston. Younger siblings were born in three parts of Durham: Sacriston,Lancaster and Gateshead. Thank you for any help you can offer. Joanne

Hi Mary, You looked on my thread the other day with regards to a Colquhoun family, I was looking for them on 1901 census in Dundee, Scotland. I have found the death cert for Robina and Hannah Colquhoun. I have found no trace of Sarah Colquhoun in Scotland. I know she never married and had died by the time her son, Robert, married in 1914. I can't find a death cert for her either. If possible can you check the English records for me. Her full name is Sarah Elizabeth Colquhoun, born in Hutchesonton, Glasgow, dob possibly 19 07 1858. The last record I have for her is living in Dundee, 1891. Thanks very much. Michelle
