VAL the only record I can find on 1891 is Henry aged 34, head, licensed victualler, with Amelia, aged 35, at 1 Ludely St, Islington No sign of young Alfred. I'll see if I can find them on 1901 Sarah

Hello Sarah, This is just a shot in the dark, on the 1901 census there is LEONARDA EDWARDS age 21, no place of birth given, and just LONDON as to where he is living. I am just wondering if this could be my Lionel Edwards age 20/21 that I have had no luck in finding. Could you give me the address and anyone living with him please. Many thanks. Pat.

Sarah - The relevant name is COLLINS - Timothy and Mary. Appreciate your humour, and look forward to hearing from you. I hope I have cracked the PC system but I doubt it somehow! Could you check for the following please, particularly on the 1871 census. Timothy age 34 - born St. George, Middx. Coal Whipper Mary age 30 - born Ireland Cork Mary Ann, daughter, age 3, born St. George Patrick, son, age either 0 or 9 by the looks of things, born St. George. They were living then at 7 Hilliards(sp) Ct (St?)., Tower Hamlets. Parish - St. George in the East. They may have moved to the Southerwark, Bermondsey, Rotherhithe, St. Olave, Surrey area of London subsequent to this census. Timothy re-married as a widower in 1878. I would like to narrow the search for Mary's death, and pick up the trail of the children if this possible. Any help you can give will be, as ever, much appreciated.

Sarah, Thanks for going to all that trouble looking for Lionel Edwards, none seem to be the right one. He was born 1880 in Marylebone with just the one christian name, he was one of 6 brothers, and there are still another two that I cannot find in 1901. Thanks again, Pat.

MAISIE - the only marriage info is whats on freeMD except for Pallots which covers the majority of London parishes - if you give me the details I can have a look, see what I can find. RITA - nothing, nada, zilch - have tried variations of the names, even looked at all 'timothy's of the right age...do you have anything else that might track them down? Siblings for Timothy or Mary? Mary's maiden name? You never know what ends up on some censuses! The nearest I got to Mary, witha daughter Mary Ann was: Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Dennis Collins 40 Cork, Ireland Head Wapping London Dennis Collins 7 Wapping, Middlesex, England Son Wapping London Edward Collins 7 Wapping, Middlesex, England Son Wapping London Eliza Collins 11 Wapping, Middlesex, England Daughter Wapping London Jeremiah Collins 1 Wapping, Middlesex, England Son Wapping London Mary Collins 35 Cork, Ireland Wife Wapping London Mary Ann Collins 3 Wapping, Middlesex, England Daughter Wapping London Michael Collins 9 Wapping, Middlesex, England Son Wapping London but none of the rest of the info seems to tie in at all. Sorry.

Sarah - It never occurred to me that maiden names might be used in the censuses. A dete tive I will never be!. I have Timothy and Mary Collins wedding cert. Batchelor and Spinster respectively. She was a Mary Lynch and her father was a George Lynch, Coal Whipper. The marriage was 18th April 1850 in the District of Stepney Union, Middx. Would any o this help. Somehow I don't feel it in my water that these are 'mine' but they are the only ones with a common name to Timothy's father i.e. Patrick Collins, Timothy's father. on the marriage lines. Hear hearing from you. Rita

Sarah Report 28 Mar 2005 11:05

RITA can we check the dates/ages again - it doesn't quite add up: in 1871 you have Mary aged 30 Timothy aged 34 Mary Ann aged 3 you say you have a marriage cert dated 1850, but that would put Mary & Timothy at 10 and 14yrs respectively, so I don't think that can be the right marriage. I did find this marriage: COLLINS, Timothy 1866 September Marriages St George in the East London Surrey but it isn't fully transcribed onto ancestry, so I can't see who the bride was. That would need to be checked on 1837.com but I'm afraid I have no credits on there at the mo. That date seems more likely with the ages you have given. Could you confirm the actual dates of birth you have (or as close as you have them) and I'll see if there is anything on 1851 for either (although that isn't fully transcribed so a bit hit and miss on ancestry) In the meantime here are some I found by looking for all Timothy's, Patrick's and Mary's in London - don't think any of them are right though :o( Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Jermiah Joseph Collins 1 Bermondsey, England Son St John London Mary Ann Collins 26 Bermondsey, England Wife St John London Timothy Collins 27 Ireland Head St John London Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Harriet Collins 51 Ireland Mother St George Hanover Square London Mary Ann Collins 15 Pimlico, Middlesex, England Daughter St George Hanover Square London Timothy Collins 31 Ireland Son St George Hanover Square London (the ages here might suggest Mary Ann is Timothy's daughter, rather than Harriet's - just a possibility) Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Joseph Collins 31 Ireland Head Christchurch London Joseph Collins 1 Lambeth, Surrey, England Son Christchurch London Mary Collins 30 Ireland Wife Christchurch London Mary Collins 3 Lambeth, Surrey, England Daughter Christchurch London Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Bridget Collins 8 Aldgate, London, England Daughter St Botolph without Aldgate London Daniel Collins 2 Aldgate, London, England Son St Botolph without Aldgate London Julia Collins 4 Aldgate, London, England Daughter St Botolph without Aldgate London Mary Collins 29 Cork, Ireland Wife St Botolph without Aldgate London Patrick Collins 34 Cork, Ireland Head St Botolph without Aldgate London Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Mary Collins 29 Clare, Ireland Wife Poplar All Saints London Mary Collins 3 Clare, Ireland Daughter Poplar All Saints London Michael Collins 1 Poplar, Middlesex, England Son Poplar All Saints London Patrick Collins 30 Clare, Ireland Head Poplar All Saints London Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Mary Collins 30 Ireland Head St Luke London Mary Collins 1 St Luke, Middlesex, England Daughter St Luke London

Sarah - I am afraid that I may have inadvertently misled you. The original info. I gave you re. Timothy and Mary Collins (nee Lynch) was from the 1861 census, as follows: Timothy age 34 - born St. George, Middx. Coal Whipper Mary age 30 - born Ireland Cork Mary Ann, daughter, age 3/poss. 8, born St. George Patrick, son, age either 0 or 9 by the looks of things, born St. George. They were living then at 7 Hilliards(sp) Ct (St?)., Tower Hamlets. Parish - St. George in the East. They may have moved to the Southwark, Bermondsey, Rotherhithe, St. Olave, Surrey area of London subsequent to the 1861 census. Timothy re-married as a widower in 1878. As I said prev. the marriage cert. 1850 states Mary's maiden name as Lynch, father George Lynch. I must say that the dates that I have from the 1881 census - Timothy age 48, tallies exactly with his death in 1894, whereas the 1861 census indicates that he was born in 1827. My head is spinning - I'm not very analytical so am now getting frazzed. If I still smoked - I'd have a fag, If I had the energy - I'd rock and roll, but On the other hand there is still a very large glass of red wine. to bring comfort and solace. I'm still not sure if I am looking in the right direction. It is only the fact that Timothy's father was Patrick and that is Timothy's father's name on the marriage cert. to Mary Lynch. Time for me break - thanks for all your efforts. Rita
