Hi Lynda, Wrong Turners I'm afraid - I'm looking for Robert and either Mary Ann or Caroline. Oh well, back to the drawing board. I'm quite upbeat tonight though as 2 more certs arrived today and one in particular has knocked down a massive brick wall. Even better than Christmas today ! Thanks for looking, Rick.


Jennysca Report 20 Feb 2004 03:05

Hi Lynda, Would it be possible to look up a George William Buzar/Buzer for me. I do not have an address, but I have 2 different dates of birth for him. 1843 Lambeth, and on the 1881 census it says 1845 Kensington, but I have applied for a birth certificate of the latter to no avail. He should be living with his parents and hopefully siblings. Kind regards Jenny Any help would be well appreciated.

Hi Lynda I'd really appreciate a look up/any information about William August Howe who was born circa 1819 in Poplar. In 1855 when his son John Edward Howe was born, he was living at 62 Pennyfields Poplar with his wife Elizabeth. By the time he died in August 1867 he was living at fifty-something Coldharbour in Poplar (parts of the death certificate are difficult to read). I'd love to know if he had any other children, who his parents were, where he was born and just about anything you could tell me. He was my ggg grandfather and one of my many "brick walls". Thank you so much for your time. Debbie


Debs Report 20 Feb 2004 11:03

Lynda You're an absolute star. Thank you so much. Coldharbour could have been a different area sorry. Debbie


Emma Report 20 Feb 2004 11:13

Hi Lynda, Thanks for the offer. Could you please look up 5 Pool Terrace, Holborn. I'm looking specifically for David Wheeler and wife Jane Wheeler nee Read. Thanks again, Emma.


Debs Report 20 Feb 2004 11:28

Hi Lynda I've been looking for my ggg grandfather's marriage cert for ages but only William August howe marriage I could find on BMD was in Norfolk in 1839. The info that you've got from the census suggests he married twice and as first two sons born in norfolk, could have been to a Norfolk lass. Have now sent for his marriage cert and am hopeful of finding his parents at long last. All thanks to your help. Really grateful and can't wait for cert to arrive. Debbie


Emma Report 21 Feb 2004 10:46

Lynda, Thanks for looking. Emma.


Rick Report 26 Feb 2004 21:35

Rick Report 26 Feb 2004 21:59

Thanks Lynda. One of my best mates is an Arsenal supporter and he's never that nice !!! Still looking forward to playing you in the final :-) Rick.


Zoe Report 27 Feb 2004 12:58

Lynda, Could you look up King Street Terrace in Islington for me. I'm hoping that they'll be a Bartram family or Chaston family. names I have are: Henry Bartram (c 1825) and Barnabus Bartram (before 1800) Ann Chaston (c1825) and John Chaston (date unknown) But anyone with those surnames would be a great help. Many thanks Zoe

Capcom Report 27 Feb 2004 18:12

Hi Lynda, Sorry to trouble you again ;-) Could you please check for the following family for me in the 1851 (& if you get time, the 1861 also): Wick Street (Shoreditch/Spitalfield or poss Hackney) Richard Charles WYNN Fruiterer aged 24 in 1851 Eleanor aged 23 In the 1861 they were probably living at 20 Princes Street, Spitalfields, Shoreditch: Richard Charles WYNN aged 34 Eleanor aged 33 Henry Thomas aged 7 Eleanor Ann age 4 Richard Alfred aged 10 months? Thanks very much. Best Wishes, Nigel Fairbairn


Capcom Report 27 Feb 2004 21:12

Hi Lynda, Would be grateful for the 1871 details. Sorry for the wild goose chase re Wick Street - having dug it out, Richard & Eleanor's marriage certificate from 1849 states Wick Street, Hackney. Thanks again, Nigel


Capcom Report 27 Feb 2004 21:49

Thanks Lynda, I'm indebted to you once again.... Hope I can pay you back someday. Very Best Wishes, Nigel


Maurice Report 27 Feb 2004 22:06

Lynda, I hope you can help, I am looking for Robert William Hasted Born in Royal Oak Lane Brentford in 1839 His parents were William Hasted and Jane Steer he had a Brother James Enos Hasted and a Sister Emily Elizabeth Hasted. If they are on the 1851 census it may give the birth place of William and Jane, or am I hoping for too much. (I believe they moved to Lambeth or Clapham in 1859) If you get a moment I would really apreciate a look up. Kind regards Maurice


Lesley Report 28 Feb 2004 14:35

Hi Lynda I don't ex[ect you can help me with this. I'm looking for Thomas GIBBINS, born St Martins, Middlesex. He would have been age about 4. Trying to find his parents. But I don't have a street name...... :( Lesley


Lesley Report 28 Feb 2004 17:15

Hello Lynda Thanks for looking. Unfortunately I don't know the names of his parents. He shows up in the LDS 1881 census, married and it gives his birth "St Martins Middlesex". However, I think he lived in the Poplar area. Thanks for trying. Lesley
