Hi Nikki, Thank you for your offer. I'm not sure if ancestry has info this recent but if so, can you please do a marriage look up for me. Elsie RUFFLES b. 1899, Bardwell, Suffolk Spouse Bert CHALK dob and place of b. unknown., Marriage would be 1912 -1926. Sorry I can't be more definite - spouse was o/s in WW1 but was disabled.. Lynne


Margaret Report 6 Aug 2005 15:43

Hi Do you think you could check a birth for me please? James Brindley was born 1943/1844 Nuneaton Warwickshire. His father was Thomas Brindley. His mother would be either Jane Brindley (nee Smedley) or Mary (nee Waters). I am trying to determine if he is a child of the first or second marriage.


Margaret Report 6 Aug 2005 15:51

Sorry, the above date should read: 1843/44.... definitely not 1943 !!

Nikki Report 8 Aug 2005 16:52

Lynne Marriage records not that up to date on Ancestry I'm afraid. You'd need to look at 1837 on line to help with that I think. Nikki


Nikki Report 8 Aug 2005 17:01

Hi Margaret With birth look ups the mothers name is not available on line but it would show the registry entry which would allow you to order the relevant certificate which should clarify things for you. These are all the James Brindleys searching 5 years either side.

Brian You didn't say which county you wanted me to look in for your family however I've searched Somerset, Gloucestershire, Bristol & Wiltshire for you with no luck. 1861 census shows Margaret as being born in Devon - guess you could try there or they had a son George born 1854 in Fulham, Middlesex. Maybe they'd moved to Middlesex by `51. Sorry I can't help any more. Nikki

Liz~~ Report 9 Aug 2005 19:52

Thanks a lot Nikki, I will have to try and work out if there is a connection to George with what you have found for me, after I had posted my request to you I found George in a boys home in Yorkshire along with a few more boys from Somerset, so it looks as if they had all been sent to Yorkshire to work in the mills as the home was connected to a textile mill, they were all aged 14. Thanks for all your trouble Nikki. Liz.. . .

Hello Nikki, I'm sorry to ask again but I asked you for a lookup on 2nd August and you haven't replied as yet. Have you missed my message or haven't you had time to look? If so, I apologise. I am looking for anyone with the name LINDON, LINDEN or LYNDON living in or around Stroud in 1851. Please have a look for me when you have time. Many thanks, Lilian

Lilian It's just as well you've asked again as I had totally missed your message!!! Many apologies. Have looked for Lindon/Linden/Lyndon/Lynden's in Stroud with no joy I'm afraid. Are there any other likely spellings? Nikki


Lilian Report 12 Aug 2005 13:35

Hi Nikki, Thanks for your reply. I'm looking for possible parents or family of William J. Linden who, according to crew lists, was born in Stroud in 1858. I suppose his family may have lived somewhere else in 1851 but I don't know where. Do you have a name index for each county? If so, I would appreciate you having another look. Other possible name variations are LANDEN, LENDEN, LONDON. Sometimes the name is transcribed as SINDEN etc. because the fancy L looks like an S. Many thanks, Lilian
