Hi Sarah Thanks for looking up the Drivers. Could please lookup Josiah Hough 40, b. Scotland, wife Emma 36, Finchley, Middlesex also Samuel Hough 36, wife Emily 34 in Croydon. Would it be much trouble to get copies of them? Thanks very much Sheila

SHEILA - the only BMD info on ancestry is what is already available on freeBMD, except there is information about death registrations after 1983 too. Doe sthis help? Sarah

Hi Sarah I can't find this guy on the IGI or BMD site, so if you would have a look, hopefully it tells who his parents are. Samuel Hough, b. 1823-1828, Atherstone, Warwickshire. Thanks very much Sheila

Sarah Report 26 Mar 2005 11:42

SHEILA - this is the closest I could come up with from 1851 census, don't know if its the right one - I'm afraid it doesn't help with the parents, but if you can get the correct marriage cert for your Samuel it will at least have his father's name on it, as well as (hopefully) Samuels age, which should then help you narrow down the marriage for his parents and therefore his mum's name! Samuel's birth won't be on freeBMD as the dates fall before civil registration was required - you need, if possible, to go to the relevant records office and go through the parish records for that one. Gosh I'm out of breath now! lol Name Residence (ED, County) Birth Place Gender Age Amelia Hough Birmingham All, Warwick Warwickshire, England, Birmingham Female 33 Samuel Hough Birmingham All, Warwick Staffordshire, England, Stone Parish Male 35 William Hough Birmingham All, Warwick Warwickshire, England, Birmingham Male 8

CHRISTOPHER - please, I'm happy to do look-ups! Since I subscribed I have really had my money's worth, and I've also had heaps of help from other people with look ups from censuses I don't have access to. I couldn't have got as far as I have without other people, so I'm just happy I can give some back. Let me know who you are looking for and I'll do what I can, Sarah

Sarah hi, any chance of a look up, please, on the 1871 census for the LONDON area JAMES HEDGE, farm bailiff, with daughter ELIZABETH F HEDGE, age 17/18, and maybe wife or other daughter SOPHIE JANE HEDGE. Thanks very much TED. Streatham was the Parish in SURREY.

Sarah Report 26 Mar 2005 15:18

Chris - try thinking laterally - what other names might they have been known as? Did Joseph have any siblings? (I have found a fair few rellies living with aunts/uncles in different parts of the country to the rest of their family!) The way I see it, eliminate all the absolutely impossibles, and your answer will be in he stuff thats left, no matter how improbable! (many apologies for the ruination of that quote! lol)

Hi Sarah Could you please look up an Eliza Woolford age abt. 17, born in Staines, Middlesex, probably still in Staines. Thanks Sheila

Sarah Report 26 Mar 2005 15:33

Aaah - Christopher! Never assume!! I got some details from my mum relating to her grandmother. She apparently had a sister called Charlotte, but everyone called her Lottie....took me a heck of a long time, and alot of wasted effort, to find that she was actually christened Lottie! I've also been looking for a Thomas ('cos that what the census said) but his birth record has him as Tom...just waiting for the cert to confirm that one!!
