Lynda, You are a star anyway, helping all these people, thank you very much for trying. Maurice.

Hi Lynda , can you do a look-up for me of 16 Stanhope Street , St. Clement Danes , Strand . I am hoping that either the surname Francomb or Davis turn up . You managed to find James and Sarah Francomb here in 1861 census but I'm not sure if they were even married in 1851 . Ages would be around 25 for James and 19 for Sarah . Thanks Hilary


Susan Report 2 Mar 2004 14:27

Hi Lynda You have very kindly helped me before, could I ask you to see if you can find the following family in Poplar for me: George Woodford(60?) Maria Woodford (45) Born Poplar Robert Woodford (5) Born Poplar and other children At 4 Mary Street, Poplar Many thanks Susan


Susan Report 2 Mar 2004 16:44

Hi Lynda Never mind the postman but confusing for you and me!! Many thanks for your help. Susan


Hilary Report 3 Mar 2004 09:22

Lynda , thank you . Another question I'm afraid , are any of these Davis's still there in 1861 census when Sarah is there with her husband and family ? 16 Stanhope Street , Strand Hilary


Hilary Report 4 Mar 2004 10:09

Hi Lynda , I think these are the mother- in-law and family of my g g grandfather , the Francomb's you found as Sarah's maiden name was Davis . Thanks Hilary


Susan Report 4 Mar 2004 21:31

Hi Lynda you have already very kindly looked for this family before but I now have a different address: 4 John Street, Poplar or 19 Bow Lane, Stepney Mary Ann Humphreys age (32) Henrietta Humphreys age (6) born St. George in the East Many thanks Susan


Rick Report 4 Mar 2004 22:23

Evening Lynda, Another day, another cert arrives...... Can you find any Wingroves or Pecks living at 6, Market Street, Paddington please ? They were there in 1847. Thanks a lot, Rick.


Rick Report 4 Mar 2004 23:52

Hi Lynda, Ouch - Thursday night parties ! Hope you don't have to get up too early. I'm getting the certs about 2 weeks after I ordered them. I do them online. Thanks for checking that address. Sleep well ! Rick.


Susan Report 5 Mar 2004 10:55

Hi Lynda I am still looking for my Vickery family. I have been giving the following references which should locate VICKERYS living in MARYLEBONE. 1851 census index(voluntary ref look-up) which are All Souls, Marylebone HO107/1486 page 417v Cavendish Square HO107/1487 pages 40v and 41r I'm not sure if this is enough information for you. Ive tried other addresses to no avail. I think 1486 & 1487 are folios, I would be grateful for any help you can give me. Many thanks! Sally I would be most grateful if you could look into


Rick Report 7 Mar 2004 14:36

Hi Lynda, Please could you have a look for 2, Blacklanes Street, Chelsea. I'm looking for John Jobbins, a shoemaker, wife Jane and baby daughter Ann. They were there in Mat 1850, so wuite hopeful on this one. Thanks, Rick.


Rick Report 7 Mar 2004 15:20

Brilliant ! Thanks Lynda - the last couple of days have been fantastic for finding ancestors. I've added 9 GGG grandparents and 2 GGGG grandparents. Cost a small fortune in certificates, but it was worth it. Pimlico sounds right - just along the Embankment from Chelsea. Thanks again, Rick.


MrsMooMoo Report 7 Mar 2004 19:31

Hi Lynda Thank you for looking up Vickerys. They don't appear to be my direct line of ancestry but I will keep information as I'm sure they will somehow link up with mine! Names John and Charles Vickery are familiar names. I appreciate your kindness . Thank you Sally


Freda23 Report 10 Mar 2004 19:58

Please could you look up William Edgar Potter. I think he was a child about that time. I have no further details sorry. Lauretta


Belle56 Report 10 Mar 2004 20:28

Hi Lynda, could you tell me who was at 1 Queen Charlotte Court, St. Saviour, London and can you tell me if there was a Lane family living in Distall Lane, City of London Many thanks April.


Belle56 Report 11 Mar 2004 14:37

Hi Lynda, I don't have a number for this address but would it be possible, if the streets are not too long to have a look for a John and Jemima Lane, in Little Distaff Lane Fish Street. Many Thanks April.

Hi Lynda Many thanks for kind offer. When you have time please could you look up 6 Omega Terrace, St Marylebone, Middx. Family name of Richardson and 18 New Quebec Street, St Marylebone, Middx. Family name of Welin ( or variant ) may be a guest house though. Does the London census cover the Loughton/Hornchrch area? Kind regards Deborah
