Thank you very much Margaret, much better than finding he had died. Many thanks once again. Belle.

Mary No sign of Eliza Page in 1901 so you might be right that she had passed on!

Thanks Margaret, I said she was a toughie! She married in Stockton on 3 March 1874 when she gave her age as 18 (but was she fibbing?) so I am guessing she stayed local to County Durham but who knows. Beth :)

Hi Margaret Thank you for the information. Best wishes Jenny Emly


Unknown Report 15 Oct 2004 21:39

Hi Margaret Could you take a look at 1901 for me? Probably in London, they're in Westminster St James Parish in 1891. George Bibb, wife Elizabeth, he'll be 34 in 1901, her a year older. I have the 1901 info for the daughter Florence. Would be curious to know where the son William is. He'll be about 20 in 1901. Thanks


Ronald Report 15 Oct 2004 22:46

Hi Margaret Thanks for your generous offer. Would you be kind enough to look up William and Ann Leonard (shown as Lenard in the 1881 census) and their daughter Phoebe in the 1871 census please. When Phoebe was born in February 1869 William and Ann were living at 81 Chatham Street Newington, Surrey. Thanks in advance Ron

Hi Margaret. I was wondering whether I could be cheeky and ask for another look up on the 1891 census (and the 1901 if I could be really cheeky). I have a birth certificate for my great grandmother Florence Alice Colthorpe who was born in 1884 to William Edward Colthorpe abnd Eleanor Colthorpe formerly Calver. Unfortunately I have not been able to find the couple on the 1881 or 1901 census and wonder you could find them on the 1891/1901 census. In 1884 William is listed as being a Farm Labourer. Any assistance you could give would be grately appriciaited. Alex


Margaret Report 19 Oct 2004 10:38

I'm sorry Alyson I couldn't find them in 1901


Margaret Report 19 Oct 2004 10:43

Sorry Ronald Couldn't find your Leonards in 1871.

Margaret Thanks for the generous offer. Trying to help someone with this part of her tree. 1891 Catherine O'Hara (also try Kate) born Stockton-on-Tees aged about 18. Most likely living in DURHAM or possibly over the river in NORTH RIDING YORKS. She wasn't living with her parents, so is possibly working away or visiting. Also looking for her future husband George Longstaff aged 22 (give or take 5 years, we suspect his age isn't correct) occ Iron puddler/worker. Most likely living near to Catherine as they married later that year. His father's name is also George if he's with family. Fingers crossed Shelly

Hi Alex I've looked through all sorts of spellings for the name Colthorpe but had no luck. Whereabout were they born/lived?


Margaret Report 19 Oct 2004 11:14

Shelly I had no luck with Catherine O'Hara but perhaps this is a possibility for her husband? 1891 England Census Living at 87 Durham Road Longstaff, Dorothy A 20 Etherley;dean, Durham Daughter Tudhoe Durham Longstaff, Elizabeth 30 Etherley moor, Durham Daughter Tudhoe Durham Longstaff, Geo 55 Southchurch, Durham Head Tudhoe Durham Steam fitter Longstaff, George 26 Etherley;dean, Durham Son Tudhoe Durham Labourer Longstaff, Mary A 51 Barnard Castle, Durham Wife Tudhoe Durham Longstaff, Matthew 24 Etherley;dean, Durham Son Tudhoe Durham Labourer Longstaff, Thomas 18 Etherley;dean, Durham Son Tudhoe Durham Labourer

Hi Margaret I wondered if you could possibly look up Kathleen Wisdon on 1901, born we think in 1893 in Wiltshire (could be in Salisbury) Many thanks Val


Margaret Report 19 Oct 2004 12:51

Hi Val I think this is your girl but they decided to call her Wisdom! It looks more like Wisdon on the actual image. 1901 England Census Frederick Wisdom 5 Salisbury, Wiltshire, England Son Fisherton Anger Wiltshire George F Wisdom 32 Salisbury, Wiltshire, England Head Fisherton Anger Wiltshire Railway Porter Kathleen Wisdom 8 Salisbury, Wiltshire, England Daughter Fisherton Anger Wiltshire Louisa Wisdom 33 Ireland Wife Fisherton Anger Wiltshire Nora A Wisdom 1 Salisbury, Wiltshire, England Daughter Fisherton Anger Wiltshire

Thank you so much Margaret, every one is so kind, Zoe, another lady on GC, also found these details they are fantastic I'm delighted!!! I wonder could you look up my Grandfather, kathleens husband also born in Wiltshire, he could come under Quidhampton, Bemerton, Salisbury. he was born (we think in 1891) as William John Young his father also William was a blacksmith or something like that. I hope you don't mind my asking you to do something else, I will be grateful if you could do this for me tho. MANY MANY THANKS Val


Violet Report 19 Oct 2004 15:36

Hi Margaret, Could you look for William Griffiths born 1851 Llantwit Fardre Glamorgan in the 1871 census and also William Bryon Worcester in the same year. Many thanks, Vi.

Phoenix Report 19 Oct 2004 16:20

If possible could you look up George and Eliza James in Minehead, Somerset please. My main concern is where they were living - probably 4 Station Cottages, Minehead, but possibly Quay Street? Trying to fill in some blanks. Thanks Kaye
