Hi Tracey, Thanks for the kind offer. I´m looking for some info on two sisters. The first is Eleanor Ann Absolom, born 1858 Stoke Row, Oxon. I know where she was in 1871 (Stoke Row) but nothing after. Most likely she married but can´t find anything. Tha second is Mary Elizabeth Absolom, born 1863 Stoke Row, Oxon. Now I know she married James Joseph M Cross in 1882. Any chance you can find them in 1891 and 1901? I think they will be in the Reading(Berkshire) area or still living around Stoke Row. Many thanks Jane

Annabel Report 13 Oct 2005 13:45

Sorry the surname is NEW he had four christian names James Richard Rowland Lawrence which over the years he used in any order its Lawrence James NEW on his death cert have tried all ways to trace his birth but hit a brick wall all the time. He had a brother Tom and a sister Hilda who also I can not trace their birth. Their parent could be William and Mary (nee Potter) NEW can not find a marriage for them ,they ended up living in Stanton St John Oxfordshire thanks Annabel

I can't do that early. He might be on FreeBMD. If not, try the IGI. If he's not there, you will need Parish Records for that area.

Tracy In the 1841/1851 her name in Georgiana Chantler father George mother Maria Hall - confused. Then she married John Chantler - more confused. Then she married Peter Campbell. I think she was Maria Hall's daughter illegitimate because I found John Chantler's birth cert 1837 father George - so did Georgiana first marry her Stepbrother ?? before Peter. Linda

Hi Tracy Can you try and find Edward Moxom c1877 Bournemouth Dorset for me please. Because of the variations throught our family tree of the spelling of Moxom, I have not had much luck at all. It could be Moxham, Moxon, Moxen any old thing would do back then it would seem. He was married to a lady nee Judd-Chalk from the same area or Isle of Wight area but don't know her christian name. As I have been unable to find his son Edmund, can't get a birth certificate. thanks Lynne

Yes please Tracey, If you can find this one I will be amazed as so far I have just drawn blanks... James Ardrey definitely died before 3 August 1901 as daughters marriage cert lists him as deceased !!! born abt. 1855 Allington Kent (son of Richard Ardrey & Elizabeth Manley). no sign of him on 1891 census or 1901. 3 of his children are in the local workhouse Maidstone Kent! wife living in someone elses house with other 2 children but she is listed as married in 1891. I have no idea if he was in the forces or not. Any trace of him will be helpful. Thanks Annette

Hi Tracy, On a photo of a gravestone I have a death date of March 16th 1914 for Annie Rodgers aged 32 years and her son Frank of 5 days on March 18th 1914. We think it could be either Sheffield or London area. Is it possible to tell me in which district these were recorded in please? Margaret
