Zena Report 8 Jun 2005 04:40

Hi Sarah Thanks for the offer. Could you please look in the 1861 census for a Frank Joy age 11 b. Surrey and John Robert Taylor age 3 b. Kent. They should be with their mother Elizabeth Taylor b. Devon -I presume. Maybe the boys are not together. Also in 1861 Isaac and wife Sophia Bennett both age 35 of Bristol and in 1871 Isaac, Sophia and son Isaac age c1yr of Bristol. Thanks Zena


Russell Report 29 May 2005 16:38

Sarah, I would like to take you up on your offer please? Can you look up the family of Walter Masters (born 1816) in the 1861 & 71 census. He was born in Clerkenwell, Middlesex and is listed as living in Bermondsey London in the 1881 census. His wife was called Emma (born 1838), but don't know what her maiden name was so any help here would be good too if you can track marriage certificates? Many thanks Russell

Hi Sarah, Thank you for your offer. I am interested in the 1861/71/91 census for: BERTRAM NOBLE born 1834 Netherwitton Northumberland Wife EMILY on the 1881 census they are in Surrey. Also 1861 census for EDWARD NOBLE born 1796 Netherwitton. Any help would be a bonus. Many thanks Anne-Marie

Thanks so much Sarah. How did you deduce Melissa Ann Pratt from Misalant A Ratt? Brilliant Holmes! It's no wonder no one can find anyone. Kay.


Sherryl Report 27 May 2005 04:11

Hello Sarah, 1871 Census Surrey When you have time I would appreciate a look-up for the following people please. Francis J. WORTH (52) - b: Newington SRY, Ham & Tongue Dealer Elizabeth (wife) 55 - b: 1816 Malvern WORC address on 1881 was 10 Denmark Hill, Lambeth SRY also trying to locate Lucy Piper MORRIS (19) - b: 1852, Bermondsey SRY Robert F.F. MORRIS (son) - b: 1867 Brixton SRY they are shown on `81 Census as living with Francis & Eliz WORTH as above - Lucy is described as married dau. It just doesn`t 'fit' - if Lucy`s age is correct on `81 Census, then she would only have been 15 when son Robert was born. Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers Sherryl in NZ

Kay Report 26 May 2005 19:07

Thanks for looking Sarah. I recently found out he was born in 1828 not 1841 and found him on census 1881. Could you please look on 1901 census for a MELISA ANN PRATT born about 1885. She was living at 11 Waterloo Terrace, Ashton upon Ribble Preston Lancashire in 1891. Thanks so much. Kay.

LORNA Henry Fisher abt 1809 Bleadon, Somerset, England Son Bleadon Somerset Wm Fisher abt 1773 Wedmore, Somerset, England Head Bleadon Somerset looks like the address given is 'The Poor House'


Sarah Report 25 May 2005 20:17

KAY I would need more information to go on - what did you want me to look at? I started at the 1861 census - there are 9 John Fisher's born in Lancashire (none in Capton) around 1841, but there is no way to narrow these down without additional details: John Fisher abt 1842 Cuxton, Lancashire, England Servant Clayton le Woods Lancashire John Fisher abt 1841 Poulton, Lancashire, England Servant Marton Lancashire John Fisher abt 1841 Preston, Lancashire, England Son Preston Lancashire John Fisher abt 1841 Preston, Lancashire, England Son Preston Lancashire John Fisher abt 1841 Preston, Lancashire, England Son Preston Lancashire John Fisher abt 1841 Boliton, Lancashire, England Lodger Rainford Lancashire John Fisher abt 1842 Roxton, Lancashire, England Son Warrington Lancashire John Fisher abt 1840 Whitley, Lancashire, England Son Lower Whitley Yorkshire John William Fisher abt 1840 Manchester, Lancashire, England Son Broughton Lancashire If any of these look likely, let me know and I'll see what else the census details say


Sarah Report 25 May 2005 20:10

TREVOR nothing I'm afraid - Ancestry only has very limited Irish records, no census information and really only very early marriage details - sorry

DAWN in 1891 I found this: Horwich End, Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire: Horobin, Sarah abt 1836 Chapel En Le Frith, Derbyshire Mother Fernilee Derbyshire Leah, Lettuce abt 1816 Mellor, Derbyshire Boarder Fernilee Derbyshire Higginbottom, Martha Eliza abt 1876 Laxall, Cheshire Daughter Fernilee Derbyshire Martha is transcribed as Higginbottom, but on the image she is definitely Horobin (there is another family on the page called Higginbottom, so that will be where the mistake was made) Sarah is listed as a widow - there is no sign of William so am I right in thinking he was her father? Found this in 1901 (same address) - looks like Sarah remarried and Martha took the new surname: John Hulme abt 1830 Abney, Derbyshire, England Head Fernilee Derbyshire Martha Hulme abt 1876 Taxal, Cheshire, England Daughter Fernilee Derbyshire Sarah Hulme abt 1835 Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, England Wife Fernilee Derbyshire Mary Wheatley abt 1851 Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, England Boarder Fernilee Derbyshire
