Hello Sheila, First of all I must appologise for not getting back to you. I could not find you, and now I realise I have been looking at the wrong Sheila. Thank you for the John Ball's from Staffordshire, I am hoping I will have some good luck. Thank you once again, Kind regards, Margaret.


Avril Report 8 Oct 2005 21:37

Hi Sheila I am looking for the marriage of William Boyes b 1787 Knaresborough ( North Yorks). I think his wifes name was Hannah but not sure. At the moment I have him and his wife having twins - Richard and Ann b. 26/12/1819 in Knaresborough. So would guess the marriage may have been 1816- 1818 Also would be interested also to find out if there were other children Can you help please?

Hi Avril The only marriage I can find for a William Boyes to Hannah in the time scale is as follows William Boyes - married - Hannah Howban date: 27/2/1809 - Recorded in York, Yorkshire Collection St. Olave No parents names were given I did find a christening for a William Boyes date: 14/9/1789 - recorded in Hull, York. Collection: Holy Trinity father: Robert Boyes mother: Sarah Thought I would send it just in case. Tried checking Richard and Ann Boyes births but not on my discs I then tried to see if there were any other children born to them, no luck I'm afraid. Sorry I couldn't be of more help Cheers Sheila

Hello Sheila You very kindly emailed me the details for Norfolk WINFIELD in the 1851 Census. Do you remember? One of them was a James WINFIELD in Aylsham, aged 36 and a police constable. The image was a little blurred on enlarging and I can't see where he came from, not his wife Louisa. Could you have a look for me please? I'd love to find out more about him. Thanks once again and very best wishes Jane


Carol Report 9 Oct 2005 11:35

Hi Sheila Many thanks for the lookup on Robert Menham. I would be interested in the Mennim names you mentioned. I flew to Newcastle a couple of years ago and came up with a blank on Mannings so I am now very interested in any spellings that could be the family. Many thanks Carol


Colette Report 9 Oct 2005 12:54

Hi Sheila looking for a Samuel Upton marriage to an Ann in Liverpool 1851 -1869. Or Samuel Upton Baptism 1812-3 Liverpool brother James Upton 1827 or Sarah Upton 1835. Samuel b 1813 is on the 51 with a Step Father Samuel Ball, mother dead. As Sarah was b 1835 and Samuel 1812-3 maybe different mothers its a rather big gap. Both James and Sarah are also the step children of Samuel Ball, would you mind also looking for a marriage of a Samuel Ball to an Upton in Liverpool anytime from 1835 -1851. Thanks Sheila Colette
