Hi Nicola, Thank you for this kind offer. I wonder if you could look for any Parfreys in Norfolk for 1851. I don't know if you need to know the actual area - they seem to have been around the Swaffham area. Thank you so much. Jackie

Nicola Any chance of looking for any relatioves in Birmingham in 1851. I have a richard George Robinson born around1795 probably in Birmingham. His son William Frederick married to Elizabeth or Betsy in 1840 in Birmingham. They had a son Richard George born 1841 and they were living in Bonacre street then which I think is Aston/nechells area. Am looking for more family for the first Richard and his son William Frederick Would be eternally grateful Lynda

Hi Linda, Sorry, I couldn't find a Richard Robinson that was in birmingham of the right age, and there were no Richard Robinson (jr) with a father called William. Sorry about that, Nicola


Lynda Report 15 Jul 2004 22:37

Thanks for trying anyway Nicola They are very trying these Robinsons. Anything under george Robinson or Frederick. They are forever been given names and using the second names. The 1841 Richard George is registered with that name, is also Richard on my grandmothers birth and marriage certificate but George on the census's. If I am trying to you I must take after my relatives(Which I do) Lyndaxx

Thanks a lot Nichola. I've entered it in my records until I can verify it, but it looks very promising. Have a nice holiday and perhaps will speak to you when you get back. Look after yourself. Lynda

Hi Ian Thanks for the kind offer. I would like you to check for William Riches (dob?) and wife Maria Elizabeth ( nee Critten- chr. 1825) in the Gt Yarmouth area.Maria was born in Yarmouth and I think William was too! Hope you can help Regards Peter

Hope this helps, Nicola

Hi Nicola Sorry for not noticing that you weren't Ian!!! I'm sure that this is them,thank you so much.I suspected that they had at least 1 child and this confirms it.Sadly there is a death of a Maria Elizabeth Riches recorded in 4th quarter 1851,so I need to find out whether it was one of mine. Thanks again for your help Regards Peter
