Hello Lynda: I wonder if the army barracks at Woolwich is listed in the 1851? I'm looking for a Royal Artillery gunner called Samuel Keast who was stationed there about this time. Many thanks!

Thanks so much for trying Lynda. We did find at 22 Mill Lane, Woolwich, an Elizabeth Keast (unusual name for London) with daughter Ellen. But though the kiddie's name/age matches, according to her birth certificate, her mother was a totally different woman (Ann) so the mystery rumbles on lol. Thank you again!

Hi Lynda You have very kindly looked for this family at three addresses and so far no luck - I now have folio numbers for Humphreys families and wonder if you could check those for me: Fol no. 267 and 474 (1851 Census Shoreditch - St. Leonard) If this is going to be too time consuming please do not bother. Susan


Susan Report 14 Mar 2004 14:56

Hi Lynda I am working from an Index produced by the East London Family History Society which states - Shoreditch sub district St. Leonard PRO. HO 107/1534 Humphreys Folio 267 and 474. Hope this is right if not please do not worry do not want to put you to any trouble. Many thanks Susan


Susan Report 14 Mar 2004 15:19

Hi Lynda Thank you so much for looking up the Humphreys for me. Susan

Hi Lynda, Might have just had a breakthrough with my Spanish mob. Please could you try 4, Edge Terrace, Kensington for me, looking for Penalbers ? Thanks, Rick.


Rick Report 14 Mar 2004 16:35

Thanks Lynda. They must move every year ! I'm looking forward to talking to the ManU fans in the office tomorrow ! Rick.


Lilian Report 16 Mar 2004 21:04

Hi Lynda, You found this family on the 1861 London census. Please look them up at the same address on the 1851. I would like to know if there were any children. Ellis and Anna Sophia Jones. Both aged about 28. 24 Tottenham Place St Pancras If they were there, could you please tell me their place of birth.If they are not there, could you please tell me if their place of birth was on the 1861 census. Many thanks, Lilian


Lilian Report 16 Mar 2004 22:02

Thanks again, Lynda. You're a star! Lilian


Lysianne Report 18 Mar 2004 11:53

Dear Lynda Sorry to ask you for 1861 and 1851, but could you look for Frances Matthews and Henry Matthews on the 1851 at the Workhouse, Princes Street, Lambeth, Surrey, please? I don't know how old Frances would have been, but Henry would have been about two or three (born Sept 1848; possibly not called Henry). Many thanks Lysianne


Rick Report 25 Mar 2004 20:42

Hi Lynda, Didn't want this thread to disappear, so I thought I'd ask for a lookup ! I got a poor copy of a cert through the post today and the addresses are a bit feint, but I think I'm looking for 3, Earls (or maybe Earles) Street in St Martin in the Fields for the Baines family. There's also another address which I think says Little Chester Street in the same area, but there's no house number. Looking for the Jobbins family, but I'll understand if there are too many houses to look through. Thanks, Rick.


Rick Report 25 Mar 2004 21:35

Hiya Lynda, As if I'd make up streetnames just to keep your thread going ! This is hard work finding people without a name index isn't it ? Just looked up Little Chester Street and it still exists - almost next door to Buckingham Palace - between Chester Street and Wilton Street. That's Belgravia - do you think that might be Kensington rather than St Martins ? Sending you an email by the way. Thanks for looking, Rick.


Joanne Report 25 Mar 2004 22:00

Hi lynda, Is there any chance you can look something up for me on the 1851 for London the names that I am looking for are Thomas Springall ( sorry no age or place of birth) Caroline Springall (aged 35 born Egham Surrey) Thomas Edward Springall (aged 10/11 born Lambeth Surrey) They would have been living around the Lambeth, bermondsey/rotherhithe area I know I havent given you a lot to go on but I would be eternally grateful Thanks JO


Joanne Report 25 Mar 2004 22:45

Hi Lynda, Thanks for trying Jo


Joanne Report 25 Mar 2004 22:59

Hi Lynda, Me again, just had a thought dangerous I know! On the 1871 thomas Edward Springall was listed as Edward and not Thomas I know on the 1871 they lived in Mellicks Place Bermondsey any chance you could check the 1861 for me. Don't worry if you can't its not a problem. thanks again jo


Joanne Report 25 Mar 2004 23:27

Hi Lynda, It was 16 Mellicks Place Elusive I think I would call them thanks again jo


Joanne Report 25 Mar 2004 23:37

thanks again Lynda If I find anything else out I'll be in touch Jo
