Mea, do you actually have the marriage cert? If not, I would suggest buying it so you can find out who her father was and exactly how old she was. I can't see anyone who looks obviously like her.

Frances, I had a look but I couldn't find anything that looked like them. That's why I said I wasn't sure if they were yours or not.

Dawn, it unlikely that the father will be listed on any of the certs if their mother wasn't married, but I will have a look for their references. All on StaffordshireBMD Staffordshire Birth indexes for the years: 1881 SMITH Reginald Ernest Longnor Staffordshire Moorlands LON/14/12 Staffordshire Birth indexes for the years: 1877 SMITH Mary Ellen Longnor Staffordshire Moorlands LON/13/30 Staffordshire Birth indexes for the years: 1883 SMITH Hannah Longnor Staffordshire Moorlands LON/14/58 Staffordshire Birth indexes for the years: 1885 SMITH Martha Longnor Staffordshire Moorlands LON/15/3 Staffordshire Birth indexes for the years: 1887 SMITH May Longnor Staffordshire Moorlands LON/15/64 You could try the baptisms to see if that holds more info.

Hi Tracy, My grandmother is a real mystery....I have dicovered quite a lot about her, but I am having great difficulty in some areas. She was born Sarah Emma Wimbleton in Kensington, Middlesex,in 1873...She married Robert William Eadie in 1890 and they had several children ,my father was born in 1910 but the name on his birth certificate is not Robert as I expected but William...Robert had a brother William...how can I find out which one is my great grandfather?...I also know that she later either married or lived with a man called Scully...my father called him his step father and he lived in West Drayton Middlesex in the 1945/50s..how can I find where my grandmother is buried?...hope this isnt too much of a muddle...any information would be greatly appreciated . Thanks Hetty.

Hetty, since Robert was called Robert William, it is probable that they are the same person. I wouldn't worry too much about that :) I can't find a marriage up to 1920, so I can't help there. As for the burial, do you have any idea when she might have died?

His mother was a Josephine Chisnall b either 1822 or 1831 in Islington, father unknown except that I understand that he was a policeman. Would really like to know about his father and any descendents. Thanks Martin

Fran, it could be that he left just before the 1861 census. Can't find his father at the moment either though lol Did he have any siblings?

Hi Tracy, I wander if you could please help me with this brick wall I am facing. My g grand-father John J Sheridan is proving to be very elusive!. I have a marriage cert (Oct 1914) for Salford register office. Married to Esther Clavering. He was age 29. Home address 25 Islington Street, Salford (I've looked online at street/trade indexes for 1911 nothing!) I have a birth cert for my grand father ( John's son ) Albert again 1914 address is 31 Islington Street for Albert's birth, 10 Islington Street for John J (Father). I also have just received a death cert for him 1940, and the address?........yes, you.ve guessed it 15 Islington Street, Salford, Manchester. Seems he has lived around there all his life, since c1885. I can find no trace of him anywhere on any census. His father was also called John J Sheridan, can't find him either!!....Very frustrating! If you can find anything at all I would be eternally grateful....but don't worry if you don't. Both occupations for John J senior and junior were general Labourers. Sorry for the long reply, Thanking you with anticipation. Pam

Hi Tracey Thanks for the offer. I cannot find my 2x grt grandfather Henry Hollyoak b Handsworth Staffs (or could be b'ham warwicks) anywhere on the 1871 census. I have him on previous ones and know he died in 1877. His wife should be Eliza and should have a son Arthur b c 1868 there is also a Charles John b c 1871. Possible connection with Cannock area. I have marriage certs and death certs for him! Hope you can help Bw Kaz
