Squiggles Report 10 May 2005 17:48

Anne, Lots of options, but none close enough to make a match (I checked childrens names against the best matches). I tried searching under place of birth as Whitley, Womersley and Yorkshire and all combinations and permutations but found nothing definite :O( Sorry! Louise


Slinky Report 10 May 2005 18:07

OK Thanks anyway Louise. Anne :)


Jennifer Report 10 May 2005 18:12

Hi Louise They look like my William and Caroline. She was born 1848/49 and he was christened in 1841 but I can find no birth entered for him. He was illegitimate so probably wasn't too shure of his age in 1861. They married in Oct 1877 but a son, Edward Karsmore is mentioned in the 1881 census aged 12. I think the Karsmore is a mistake as his mother's maiden name is mis spelt on my grandmother's birth cert and altered. I was curious to know if Edward was William's son or if he had another father. I had hoped the 1871 census would show if Caroline and William were together when he was born or if Caroline was living with someone else. Never mind. Thanks for all your efforts. Jenny

Hello Louise Could you please look up for me on 1901 census Terence Herbert Collins he was born on 17/04/1900 His father was William George Collins b1873 I think they came from London Thank you Deborah


Squiggles Report 11 May 2005 10:44

Hi Deborah, No luck I'm afraid! There were very few TH Collins matching year of birth, so I looked at those that were closest (including Herberts and Herbert T's). Sadly, none had fathers called William :O( These were the best matches at Ancestry and if you think any might 'fit', let me know and I can give you the entire family details. Terence H Collins 6 months Blackpool, Lancashire, England Son Fleetwood Lancashire Terence Collins 4 months Wanstead, Essex, England Son Wanstead Essex Herbert T Collins 5 Cambridgeshire, England Son Cambridge Cambridgeshire Herbert Collins 2 Barrow Hill, Derbyshire, England Son Staveley Derbyshire Herbert Collins 2 Walthamstow, Essex, England Son Walthamstow Essex Herbert Collins 2 Bristol; Bishopston Son Bristol Gloucestershire Herbert Collins 2 Little Heath, Middlesex, England Son East Barnet Hertfordshire Herbert Collins 1 Leicestershire, England Nephew Barkby Leicestershire Herbert Collins 2 Camberwell, London, England Son Battersea London Herbert Collins 2 Peckham, London, England Son Camberwell London Louise :O)

Hi Alan, Sorry, but address searches aren't possible as I use Ancestry rather than a CD. I believe I can address search for 1881 census only. Sorry I couldn't help :O( Louise


¨*:·.Susiebabes.·:*¨ Report 11 May 2005 15:23

Hi louise, Could you do a 1891 Census look up for me please on my G/Grandfather. Would like to know how many lived in his home and names of siblings, father and mother. Also his fathers occupation. Name: Frederick Thomas Gibbs D.O.B: 06/04/1888 Street & town: Commercial Road ?, Six Bells Abertillery Thank you Susie x


Squiggles Report 11 May 2005 17:19

Hi Susie, Not having much luck I'm afraid, neither in Welsh Or English 1891. Was he definitely born in Abertillery in Wales? If you have any more info, let me know and I'll search again. Louise :O)


¨*:·.Susiebabes.·:*¨ Report 11 May 2005 22:54

Hi louise, He would have been born in Llanhilleth and would have been registered in Newport Monmothshire..possibly That is the only thing I could think of, it was my mothers mistake saying he was born in Six Bells!! Thanks again Susie x

Hi Louise It's very kind of you to offer to do this. 1871 census: Please could you give me fuller details of James Key, born around 1827 in Northamptonshire, living in London I have found him on the Ancestry 1871 index, but would dearly like to know more of him and his family (was he a hairdresser like the rest of the ones I know about, or maybe a printer?) Many thanks in advance. Regards Helen
