Thanks ever so much Tracy. I think the Kill's from Codford St. Peter, are probably mine as the names carry on in the family, and some of the family were in Codford St. Peter at a later date. Thanks again, Kath. x

Hi Tracy I wonder if you could look up a birth for me. Annie Bentley born 25th December 1915/16 in Bradford Yorkshire Many Thanks Mary

Mary, Any idea of her mothers maiden name? I found a couple of possibles. The ones in 1915-16 aren't in Bradford, and the only one in Bradford was born 1919.

Hi Tracey, Thank you for your offer. Can you please do a dod lookup for me for Arthur LEWSLEY, b. 1855, Pancras Middlesex - although 1901 census recorded birthplace as Kentish Town. He was a solicitors clerk. There are records for an Arthur H. LEWSLEY but this is his son. Dod would be post 1901. Thanks, Lynne

Hi Tracey, You are an absolute gem! I have been really getting in a tangle with both father and son called Arthur, both with two marriages and both living at the same time, in London. Thanks so much. Can I ask for another one PLEEESE. Unfortunately I don't think this one will be as easy. ANY info would be appreciated. George B. (probably Beaumont) LEWSLEY. b. 1880, Islington. On 1881 census living with: Arthur LEWSLEY (head - father), b. 1855 Louisa Jane (mother) b. 1857 Arthur H. LEWSLEY 1878 I can't find any record after 1881 census. Thanks, Lynne

Wendy, I don't have access to certificates, only their references. If you buy it, it will give an age for both Elizabeth and Thomas. From those, you can work out an approximate year of birth, and then look for a birth record. Have you looked in 1881 for George? It is free to search at familysearch.org

Lynne, I'm struggling with George. Can't even find a marriage for him. Did find a birth though... Birth Mar 1880 Lewsley George Beaumaris Islington 1b 394 Possible for Arthur... Arthur H Lewsley abt 1878 Holloway, Middlesex, England Head Friern Barnet Middlesex Ada Lewsley abt 1878 New Southgate, London, England Wife Friern Barnet Middlesex

Hi Tracey, It is so frustrating. You have the right family .. and now I know what the B. stands for - Beaumaris. His mothers maiden name was Beaumont so I had been working on that premise. So the mystery of George remains unsolved. The info you found re Arthur H. is George's brother and first wife. Thanks for looking, Lynne

Hi Tracy I am so stupid LOL I gave you her married name not her Maiden Name. so sorry the details are Annie Foster born 25th December 1915/16 Bradford dont know mothers name thats what Im trying to find out but Fathers name was Thorpe Foster. I got her date of Birth from Death Certificate, She was my Husbands Grandmother and am just starting his tree. but his Dad cant remember anything. they never appeared to discuss old family. I do know that her father was awarded an OBE but thats it. Sorry once again for mix up Mary
