Hi Sarah, I'm looking for James Pegram b1825 Epping Essex Richard Pegram was born 1863 Stoke Newington. Wondering if the family is in London 1861. I do not know who James' wife is. On the 1881 census London Middlesex James is there with his 4 children but no wife. Thanks Christine

Hi Sarah This is a long shot but could you see if any of my Ringrow ancestors are in this edition. It is really annoying because i know they were in London at that time but nobody can seem to find them. They lived in the east end, Mile End/Stepney/Bethnal Green. On some documents i have for them at later dates they are living at different numbers(13,20,304) of Globe Road, which runs between Mile End and Bethnal Green. It seems a lot of them time their name is misspelt or transcribed wrongly. A few are Rengrow, Renfrew, Rengrove to name but a few. Anyway enough of my going on! I would be really grateful if you could have a look. Many Thanks Sharon

Could you see if you can find a John pursey and/or brother william born 1837/40 city of london,middx. Don't hold out much hope as can't find marriage or birth records for either but worth a look. may not be there as may have gone to Surrey by then. thanks for your time and effort Kim

Hi Christine Sorry there was only 1 James listed age 14 and there was no Richard listed. All the best Sarah


Chris Report 7 Jan 2004 10:55

Thanks for looking for me Sarah - They must have still been in Essex then. Thanks again, Christine


Sarah Report 7 Jan 2004 10:56

Hi Diana Ive sent you an email. Thanks Sarah


Sharon Report 7 Jan 2004 11:16

Hi Sarah Thanks for checking again! The people i am looking for are John and Rebecca Ringrow age about 27 they should have had a least one son called John born 1855. Other names i have but do not exactly how old are James Ringrow, Charlotte Ringrow, Elizabeth Ringrow, George Ringrow, Sarah Ringrow. Thanks again Sharon


Sarah Report 7 Jan 2004 12:20

Hi Sharon Sorry to say i could not find anything. Iam also having the same trouble. Some say i should try Kent ,Essex or Middlesex just to name a few. The only trouble is, its easier to pick up data for London, than the others. The last 3 discs ive brought, as well as people doing research for me, ive not found a thing. Well i know i will find them in the end! All the best Sarah


Helen Report 7 Jan 2004 12:21

Hi Sarah, I'm not sure if your census will cover Deptford/Greenwich as they may be classed at Kent but if they are covered could you please look up the following: James Grayston aged about 33 (a guess, might be older!) Fisherman Caroline Grayston aged about 33 James Grayston aged 13 Sarah Ann Grayston aged 6 James snr and Caroline were married in Deptford in 1847 and Sarah Ann was born at No. 3 Gothic Place, Greenwich in 1855 so presume they will still be around that area although Sarah and possibly Caroline had moved to Poplar by 1901. Many thanks Helen PS: the surname seems to often be mistranscribed as Graystone/Grassen/Grayson etc...


PinkDiana Report 7 Jan 2004 12:43

I think I have emailed you too but just in case.... I am after Henry Hennis born 1848, son of Henry Hennis and Mary Gelloway last address 163 New Church Road, London in 1881. Both surnames are very unusual so would appreciate any help you can give me Thanks


Sharon Report 7 Jan 2004 13:12

Hi Sarah Thanks for trying. I think i will probably give up looking on census's now as no-one can ever find them. Either their names have been really badly mistranscribed or they just didnt bother giving the information, plus the fact i know from John and Rebecca's marriage certificate in 1854 that they were illiterate doesnt help. I know they difinitely lived in that area as I have found birth registrations for their children there. I think i will have to start ordering birth certificates to see if i can find an address for them around that time and try searching that way. Thanks again for your time and your help. Sharon

Hi Sarah. Not sure what areas are covered by this index, but if Islington is included, can you please check for William Robert and Phoebe Rachel Sear - possibly in Parker Street or Charles Street - William would be about 25, Phoebe about 28. Thank you in advance for anything you find. Maz. XX
