Hi Jane Thanks for that. All I have on the Snell's is Margaret Snell who was married to Matthew Davies. Her father's name on her marriage cert in 1842 is Charles and occupation is farmer. I then have a George Snell ( i'm assuming is her brother) in attendence on Mathew Davies death cert in 1856. All residences are Chester on all info i have but don't know where Charles would have been born or his wifes name... Hope this makes sense. Thanks for your help Julie

Could you try and look up on the 1901 census any relatives of my grand-father, Eugene Daniel Frances Wills. He was born in Liverpool in 1885. I know there was 1brother George J Wills born 1887 and I know of 1 sister Madeline, sorry I do not know any dates for her. Their father left them in the care of his brother or sister when they were quite young and went off to America after the death of his wife. Again I have no more info on names or dates. I know it sounds an impossible task, but would appreciate any help I can get. Jill

Mary, These are all the Mary Kings in 1901 census in Bristol: Mary King abt 1880 Pucklechurch, Gloucestershire, England Servant Bristol Gloucestershire Mary King abt 1886 Bristol Servant Bristol Gloucestershire Mary King abt 1873 Devizes; Bath Visitor Bristol Gloucestershire Mary A King abt 1880 Bristol; St Thomas Daughter Bristol Gloucestershire Mary Ann King abt 1888 Bristol Daughter Bristol Gloucestershire Mary Annie King abt 1872 Bristol, Gloucestershire, England Wife Bristol Gloucestershire Mary King abt 1889 Bedminster; Bristol Daughter Bristol Gloucestershire Mary A M King abt 1880 Bristol; Clifton Granddaughter Bristol Gloucestershire now i have removed all the ones that didn't apply already, wrong initials, were wives, etc. i would suggest that your John William is the oldest child as the parents married in June 1901, and John was born Sept. 1901, the only way forward for you is to see the marriage certificate of Mary Ann & William, to find out both of their fathers names, sorry but its going to cost you £7 before i can help you any more....... but get back to me when you have the names and i'll look again for you ... jane

Justine, sorry the census was 1901, ( which is what i thought you had asked for....) address was 15 Panlin (?) st, Bermondsey Have absolutely no idea which area Chiswick comes under, but did find the birth of an Annie Emeline Tucker in dec. 1881, in Lambeth, so thought Lambeth was a possibility. have since had a look for 1891 too, but nothing i'm afraid, there was only 1 about right age, in London, but father didn't match.. have also had a quick look at 1881, remembering that she might not have been born yet, but again, nothing with Chiswick at all, but obviously you are able to view 1881 on LDS, so if you find your William, send me the details back & i'll try searching again for him next time,

Hi Jane, If you could help, here is one on your doorstep! Trying to find info on my grandmother, Ruth Watson, born 1892 in Loughborough, and my great grandmother, Elizabeth A Watson, born 1868. Ruth being one of 6 children lived in Market Street, Loughborough. Any information at all regarding any of the above, their descendants or forebears would be greatly appreciated. I have come to a dead end as it appears neither my grandmother or great grandmother married!

Hi Jane, could you look on the 1851 for a george and mary ann barnes? They were living in Lambeth around this time, and were aged 35 and 33 approx. Both were born in Lambeth. By 1851 they had a son named Lemuel Barnes(this is spelt in various ways in later census records) he was born in 1843 so would have been 8 or 9 in 1851. Any info, addresses or occupations would be great. Thanks so much, Pete
