Hi Wendy, Linda, and Nigel Sorry could find nothing __________________________________________________________________ Hi Margaret, Have had quite a few to look for and since have to change discs for marriage and births and surnames takes quite a while, also cannot sit with my foot down too long at the computer. I am also taken names in order as they appear as feel that is only fair, have just come to your 1st entry and also printing off the next lot and noticed your second. Have checked both names and am unable to help you no record for either sorry Maureen Hi Fiona Think this could be the right one, hope so Maureen EVANS, Thomas Christening Gender: Male Christening Date: 13 Sep 1846 Recorded in: Middle, Shropshire, England Father: Edward EVANS Mother: Mary Source: FHL Film 503510 Dates: 1840 - 1852 Hi Teresa e-mailed you direct as a few possibilities.

Hi Chris Sorry could find nothing but had a similar thing with two on my ancestors. My husband's father had two different Christian names birth certificate had his uncle's name on it, think he probably went to register the birth, not so literate in those days, and true father on wedding certificate, so could have similar case. Also my own father (parents divorced and not seen my dad since I was a toddler) he was Born and registered in one name and then married and died in his mother's partner's name that ws a real muddle to sort out especially as his mother had re-married yet again. Just a couple of possibilities to explore, hope it doesn't confuse you more. Good luck if i can hlep you againjust let me know. Maureen

Sharon Report 1 Mar 2005 16:19

A difficult one, I have a grandmother Maud Smith on her marriage certificate it says her father's name was Thomas Smith a private in the army the only idea as to date is that she was probably born between 2-7-1884 to 2-7-1885. Don't feel obliged as I know how many Smith's were around at the time. Sharon

Hi Maureen, Hope you are feeling better today. I am looking for 2 sisters, 1. Ravina/Rovina/Rosina Woodruff, born 1868 in Dubln but living in Cheriton Kent on 1871 census with her family. Showing as Ravina on 1871. Can't find her after then so perhaps she married or died. There is a Rosina in a convent in Deal on 1881, she was born Ireland, so maybe mine? 2. Edith Kathleen Woodruff, born Dover 1874. On 1881 census but not on later ones. living with family in Hougham Kent. Listed as Eade Woodruff, Nephew, Female??!! I have birth cert and she is daughter. Lovely transcription error!! Had she married or died by 1891? Father for both girls was William Woodruff, mother Mary Woodruff. I am wondering if both were in convents or perhaps living in Ireland as mother was born Limerick. Hope you can help. Margaret

Hi Maureen No worries! I am just really grateful to you for looking! My other lookup was: Thomas Frederick BLOWER married Jane ??? and had first child in 1821, so around this time, and would have married in Bermondsey, Surrey area. Thanks again! Regards Evie


Treetective Report 1 Mar 2005 16:52

No problem Maureen...thanks for looking. Did not mean to 'hassle' you...I genuinely thought my first post had been overlooked as I thought people after me had been answered. This is a brick wall one for me and so after careful thought I decided to post again (albeit saying that I appreciated you may not have had the chance to look yet). You are a brave woman for offering what you have...I sincerely did not mean to seem as if I was being pushy.

Hi Maureen I think you may have forgotten me.My request was on page one.I do understand how busy you have been!!!!!so when you have time could you check it for me.mANY THANKS aNN


Unknown Report 1 Mar 2005 17:23

Hi Andrea There is 16 cd's in all but births and marriages are on different cd's it is in alphabetical order with 13 discs on christenings/births and 3 discs on marriages you can search by name over a 5year period each way, sometimes it gives variations on surnames other times you have to put them in. Can narrow searches down to cities or towns but not all there and can put in parents if birth or christening, though that can confuse as find sometimes parents change christian name or revert to middle name, also spouse if a marriage. Have found from my own experience they are not always born where they say either because can't remember or to avoid being thrown out of a town if no work. So do a quick search over either England Scotland Wales or Ireland if not too common a name. Must admit thought there would be more on it as very hit and miss, still if it helps a few it is worthwhile. Maureen
