RITA - ok, you really got me on this one! lol These are families closest fitting the details: Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Ellen Collins 32 Rotherhithe, Surrey, England Wife Bermondsey London Patrick Collins 16 St Georges, Middlesex, England Son Bermondsey London Timothy Collins 38 St Georges, Middlesex, England Head Bermondsey London John Shay 17 Rotherhithe, Surrey, England Son Bermondsey London (not quite sure where the figures come from here...John Shay is definitely listed as 'son' on the image, but it doesn't add up to the parent's ages!) Name Age in 1871 Birthplace Relationship Civil Parish County/Island View Image Mary Collins 50 Cork, Ireland Wife St Giles in the Fields London Timothy Collins 45 Cork, Ireland Head St Giles in the Fields London Margaret Crawley 28 Ireland Lodger St Giles in the Fields London Patsy Crawley 28 Ireland Lodger St Giles in the Fields London Patsy Crawley 2 St Giles, Middlesex, England Lodger St Giles in the Fields London Thomas Kingston 28 London, England Lodger St Giles in the Fields London Alice Price 40 London, England Lodger St Giles in the Fields London James Price 8 St Giles, Middlesex, England Lodger St Giles in the Fields London Is it possible Mary was already deceased by the time the 1871 census was taken? While Timothy didn't remarry until 1878, its still possible he was living with his new wife. What is the name of wife no.2 (maiden name that is)? And how certain are you that Mary Ann and Patrick were both still living in 1871?

SARAH - Thanks for your reply. I had the ref. of Ellen Collins et al. in the 1871 census already. I was kindly sent the image. Things looked good. I sent off for John SHAY birth cert. He was born in the Workhouse, South St. Giles. in 1854. Father unspecified. Mother a Catherine SHAY. If Timothy was the unnamed father perhaps he accepted the child later. Timothy's second marriage was to an Elizabeth RICHARDS in March 1878. Timothy's father was stated to be Patrick COLLINS, deceased. Elizabeth RICHARDS's father was a James Richards, deceased. I have Timothy's Death Cert. He died in Aug 1894. According to the 1881 census and family folk-lore Timothy and Elizabeth had a son called John who was then 3 years old. There are three step-children named in the 1881 census. Their surname is RICHARDS. BUT on the wedding certificate 1878 Elizabeth is described as a Spinster. I know nothing of Mary except that on the Marriage Cert. to Timothy her father is a George Lynch. I have looked up on Freebmd and found the following possibly, but how probable, death refs. for Mary or Mary Ann Collins - Mar. 1864 - St. Geo. East - no age given Mar. 1865 - Rotherhithe - no age given Mar 1875 - St. Geo. East - age 46. This could be good BUT this is after 1871. Sep. 1877 - St. Olave - age 45 I have beginning to think that this a total red herring and that I have become fixated on the idea ANY Timothy Collins whose father is Patrick is automatically MY Timothy and that therefore it is fact and not still conjecture. I had used the name PATRICK as an eliminator when applying for the marriage cert. and Mary was the only qualifier. Sarah - how do you keep yourself sane when all about you people like me are burbling on and not making very much sense. I hope that you can tease some sense out of all this. Again, I appreciate all your efforts. Rita

Thelma Report 7 Apr 2005 16:26

Hello Sarah, I am trying to trace my Gt. Grandfathers whereabouts in 1871. His name was David Forbes/Forbues and was born somewhere in Ireland in 1846. He came to England at some stage and was married in 1873 in London to a lady named Jane from Sittingbourne, Kent. Later they lived in Fulham. I am trying to trace when he came to England and where he lived at the time of the 1871 census. He was a general labourer. At the time of the 1891 census he was living in London. Thank you for any information you might find. Thelma Charlton

please, please, please with a cherry on top could you look up a George King born c1877 and Rose King born c1878 Bromley, London. They should have a son George King born 1900. I understand you have loads of requests, so don't worry if you can't. I think their address may have been 67 Blackthorn Street Bromley; they were living there 1897, possibly with Morgan family. Cheers...Carmen
