Hi again Zoe, Sorry for the delay in replying. I have been visiting my grandchildren. Re the HEWITTS. No, I simply can't find any of them in 1861. I am beginning to wonder if the census for wherever they were is missing. Jenny

Hi Zoe, Thanks so much for all the information, can I do this on Ancestry for free or would I have to pay a subscription. You have been so much help, anytime you want a Scottish lookup just contact me, I usually have a few credits to spare on ScotlandsPeople and I would like to be able to give you something back for all your help.

Betty Upto about 1915ish depending on name and place it maybe on http://freebmd.rootsweb*com/ these are not fully transcribed as yet. You can look through the GRO index(scans of the pages) for free on Ancestry goto homepage and scroll down under the main search box next to list of census years you should see BMDs BETA click on that and enter Births enter surname and years then search through. Remember to note if there are any quarters missing as there are a few Happy hunting!! Zoe

Kate is buried as Kate FOOT in Southall. on freebmd, in March 1903 Kingston a Kate CLEMENTS is listed.

Hello Zoe, Thanks for the kind offer. My biggest mystery is where people get their info from. I'm in Australia but find it difficult to get out. Can you give me any websites I could subscribe to or thing I could buy. I use Family search and all the free ones. My second mystery is the KETLEY family. James and Eliza (Ayley). Son William born Oct 1852 Good Easter, Essex. Anyway of finding any other children or what happened to James and Eliza. William came to Australia in 1874 so I have him. If you solve my first mystery I might be able to do the second myself. Thanks.

Hi Zoe, I hope it will be 3rd time lucky ! The 1861 Census shows William and George Phipps, as sons of Robert & Sarah. Robert was 21 years of age and as William was born 1846 and George in 1851 then they were clearly not his sons. Presume he was a relative (cousin) as all the males were born in St Clement Danes. The address was 52 Chapter St. William's birth certificate gives the family address as 10 Milford Lane in the Sub-district of St.Clement Danes and his father shown as a Coal Porter (makes a change from all the Ag-Labs !). William's marriage certificate (September 1867) also states same occupation for father who was deceased; William's address by then was Houghton St, Clare Market. He was married by Banns at St Clement Danes. No certificates yet for George but he was shown living with William and his family in 1871, marrying in December 1872 at St.Clement Danes then in 1881 was on Census for Walthamstow where he claimed he was born in Bethnal Green ! The Robert Phipps I am looking for appears to have died June 1855 in the Strand area and IGi has thrown up a Robert Skinner Phips (different spelling) born Jan 1811 in St Clement Danes plus a Rebecca Elizabeth Clark (also different spelling) born Aug 1811 in St Martin in the Fields. There are so many Phipps/Phips/Fipps/Phibbs etc. all in this Strand area of Westminster a new pair of eyes might solve it. I sincerely hope so and will be eternally grateful, as the saying goes, if you do. MAny thanks, Brenda.
