Hi Laurie, Many thanks for the info and I see the lodger is still there plus the other one alleged earlier to be a grandson and whose name is wrongly transcribed anyway ! Can't think what happened to J.W.C. senior - think I tried Free BMD already but will have another look in case I missed it Again, many thanks

Hi Stephen, Here's William: Record Emily F Castle abt 1836 Greenwich Daughter Greenwich Kent View Record Francis E Castle abt 1798 Greenwich Wife Greenwich Kent View Record William J Castle abt 1838 Greenwich Son Greenwich Kent Cant see her husband on the image, however it does have her down as Fishermans wife so he could be out at sea as she is down as married. Laurie

Hi Michael, Were William and Sarah married? if so this could be them: Record Sarah Ann Crouchman abt 1826 Stepney Green, Middlesex, England Wife Theydon Garnon Essex View Record Thomas Crouchman abt 1833 Laughton, Essex, England Brother Theydon Garnon Essex View Record William Crouchman abt 1821 Thoydon Garnon, Essex, England Head Theydon Garnon Essex There are no Crouchmans down for the area of Essex that you said. There are a few Sarah's and Williams however this William was the only one that was the head of the household. If this is not right then if you have anymore info ie year of birth I might be able to find them from that. Laurie

Hi Laurie Excellent stuff, many thanks for that, much appreciated. Stephen


hibbert Report 30 Oct 2005 14:36

Hi Laurie Can you have a look in the 1851 census for me in the walsall,staffs area to see if you can find a john and mary tonks with children sophia and maria. Also looking for a Charles tonks wife harriet children charles george harriet. many thanks for your time regards margaret


Michael Report 30 Oct 2005 14:57

Hi Laurie, Thanks for looking. My William and Sarah were (as far as I can guess - my only record of William is 1841, which didn't give relationships) brother and sister. Sarah moved out of the area at some point, not sure exactly when, but I was hoping that William would still be around. He'd probably have been about 25-30 then - again, not sure exactly. Awkward bunch, my family - sorry! Thanks, Michael


Elaine Report 30 Oct 2005 16:04

Children at this address were: Luke c1858 Elizabeth c1861 David c1862 Sarah c1868 Thank you Elaine


Kate Report 30 Oct 2005 16:50

Hi Laurie, if possible I'd like an 1851 look up please. Ann HARRIS born abt 1831 living in Warwickshire. The name of the place is something like Emscote, Crimscote or Armscote - definitely ending in -cote. Sorry I don't know anything more definite. Thank you!


Laurie Report 30 Oct 2005 21:46

Hi Margaret, Not having much luck with your Tonks families. Do you have any idea of years of birth or places of birth? Nothing coming up for Walsall that fits or Staffs. Laurie


Laurie Report 30 Oct 2005 21:55

Hi Kate, Cant see Matthew snr or Sarah but could this be Matthew jnr: Record Matthew Bowman abt 1816 Cundall, Yorkshire, England Head Topcliffe Yorkshire View Record Ralph Bowman abt 1848 Dishforth, Yorkshire, England Son Topcliffe Yorkshire View Record Mary Pickersgill abt 1823 Ripon, Yorkshire, England Servant Topcliffe Yorkshire Matthew is being down as a Smith (assume that's a blacksmith) and he is a widower. Will check out the other children. Laurie


Laurie Report 30 Oct 2005 22:09

Hi Kate, Sorry I cant see any of the others on 1851. Laurie


Laurie Report 30 Oct 2005 22:13

Hi Elaine, Do you have the exact spelling that was on the 1881, as nothing is coming up on Ancestry for that surname. It might give me an idea of where to start with surname variations. Laurie


Laurie Report 30 Oct 2005 22:21

Hi Kate, here she is: Ann Harris abt 1832 Emscote, Warwickshire, England Servant Hampton in Arden Warwickshire View Record Frederic Hoffay abt 1840 Knowle, Warwickshire, England Servant Hampton in Arden Warwickshire View Record Catherine Kimbell abt 1801 Miberton, Warwickshire, England Wife Hampton in Arden Warwickshire View Record Feferie John Kimbell abt 1828 Knowle, Warwickshire, England Son Hampton in Arden Warwickshire View Record John Kimbell abt 1798 Solihull, Warwickshire, England Head Hampton in Arden Warwickshire Well it should be her as this is the only one within the right age range that caomes from a '.....cote' Laurie


James Report 30 Oct 2005 22:22

Hey Laurie Would you mind doing an 1851 lookup for a Maria Painter, comes from Brockton or the area surrounding. I don't know the exact age but she was probably about 12? I'm trying to find any siblings or parents. Any info would help though. Thanks


Kate Report 31 Oct 2005 11:18

That's definitely her, thanks Laurie!

hibbert Report 31 Oct 2005 19:17

Hi Laurie I Know from 1841 census that they were all born in staffs except harriett (wife).she would be born circa 1811.Children would be 19,15,13,11 by 1851.I think possibly that some or all were dead by 1851.Charles head of family born circa 1792-1798.Don't think you will have missed them so thanks for looking anyway!
