Hi Gaynor, Its very strange but I can find no trace of her in 1871! I did wonder whether she may have died, poor lamb, as a child but then I discovered a marriage ref which may well be her? Marriages Sep 1897 HOWARD Jane Sarah Croydon 2a 429 I'll see if I can find out who her spouse was by working backwards at FreeBMD using the index ref....watch this space.....

Marriages Sep 1897 DUKE William Thomas Croydon 2a 429 HOWARD Jane Sarah Croydon 2a 429 SAMPSON William Croydon 2a 429 Now to see if I can find a Jane Sarah DUKE or Jane Sarah SAMPSON as a wife in 1901...... :O( Couldn't find either, not born or living around Croydon anyway :O( Sorry! Louise :O)

Hi, Louise. Sorry, i wasn't able to catch you in time! Re Jane Howard, Her husband was William Sampson, they were my Gt Grandparents and I got their names from my Nan's birth certificate - Edith Elizabeth Jane Sampson b 14 june 1903 at 10 bourne street Croydon. Jane's family lived at the same address from 1881 onwards. I can't find anything on william Sampson at all as I don't know where he was Born? I did find a birth for a William Thomas Sampson june 1898 in Croydon Surrey and wondered if he might be their son? as i've been told that my Nan had four brothers Jack, Jim, Bill & Fred. This is so difficult as my nan (edith) died in 1943/4 when my Dad was just a toddler and my Dad died in 1984. Thanks for all your help, it's very much appreciated! Regards, Gaynor.

Hi Gaynor, Thanks for the feedback! I've been having a scoot about FreeBMD for births, deaths etc and there are a few, some way too early though. Might be of interest anyway? Deaths Sep 1876 Sampson William 67 Croydon 2a 147 Deaths Mar 1886 Sampson William 28 Croydon 2a 186 Marriages Sep 1896 Sampson William George Croydon 2a 602 Marriages Sep 1897 SAMPSON William Croydon 2a 429 Births Jun 1898 Sampson William Thomas Croydon 2a 262 Deaths Sep 1900 Sampson William 50 Croydon 2a 148 Marriages Sep 1909 SAMPSON William Henry Croydon 2a 582

Hi, Louise. Thanks for that! The earlier deaths could well be Grandparents, Uncles etc as there doesn't seem to be that many Sampsons in Croydon. I've found the majority to be from the west country! But until he decides to show himself on the 1901 cencus, I'll never know where he was born! lol! Many thanks Louise, All the best! Gaynor.

Morning, Louise. Please could you have a look for a John Howard on the 1861 cencus, b c1837 in Croydon. He would be about 24, he could possibly be living with his wife Elizabeth ? b c1841 in Croydon. (I don't know for sure as i can't find a marriage for them?) If I have the right couple on the 1871? they were living at 2 coleshill terrace Croydon, with what is said to be John's in-laws, name of Baker. Many thanks, Gaynor (again!) :-)

Hi Gina, James the younger would have been born too late to show on any census. His father may well have been born too late too (assuming he was say, 25 when his son was born, that would make him born around 1906). I had a look at 1901 for you and there were several James Sharples' born in the late eighteen hundreds in Lancashire. I need a little more info I'm afraid, to filter out the rogue Sharples! :O) Any idea when he may have passed on, and the age he was when he died? At least then we can work out roughly when he was born. But I did find one James Sharples born in Clayton le Moors who might be a link - see what you think.... I think he's too old by far to be the father, but possibly an uncle or even James Senior's father? Alban Sharples abt 1899 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Son Clayton le Moors Lancashire Alfred Sharples abt 1894 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Son Clayton le Moors Lancashire Bernard Sharples abt 1896 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Son Clayton le Moors Lancashire James T Sharples abt 1886 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Son Clayton le Moors Lancashire Jane Sharples abt 1890 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Daughter Clayton le Moors Lancashire Peter Sharples abt 1864 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Head Clayton le Moors Lancashire Peter Sharples abt 1892 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Son Clayton le Moors Lancashire Sarah J Sharples abt 1863 Clayton le Moors, Lancashire, England Wife Clayton le Moors Lancashire Image Ref SHARPLES Hope this helps!
