Sarah Report 2 Apr 2004 16:48

Hi Lynda Could you please a look for :- 55 Glocester St Stepney For any MAJOR`s. 47 Morgan/Morgen St , St Georges Middlesex. For any HOWARDs. Glocester may be wrong as ive got the details from certificate`s and the details are hard to read . So it may be something like Glocester . Iam not 100% sure where Morgan street is but the marriage was under the parish of St Georges Middlesex. Many thanks for all the help you have given me,so far. Sarah


Sarah Report 2 Apr 2004 18:28

Hi Lynda Thank you very much , your brill!!!!! The MAJORs were mine. I have Mary MAJOR as a witness on the Certificate. Marys husband is George MAJOR and he is a rope ???? and his alive in 1853. So its strange not to see him living with the rest of the family. My husbands on the mend, back up the Medway on Monday! Thanks again now i can add another twig to this tree! Sarah


Annie Report 2 Apr 2004 18:32

Hi Lynda Thanks very much for looking anyway (back to the drawing board!). Thought it would be a stroke of luck for them to stay still for 8 yrs ... Best wishes Ann


Rick Report 3 Apr 2004 10:55

Morning Lynda, Please could you double-check something for me ? Ages ago, I asked you to look for my Carvill family in 1851 at 6, Amwell Terrace, Clerkenwell. If I remember rightly, you couldn't find the street in the index ? I've now found it in 1841 and it says it's part of Great Percy Street. Just to confure the matter, William Carvill died in 1844, but his married daughter was living there with her family at the time - so I'm really looking for Eliza Ann Boyle with husband William and children, William, Eliza Charlotte, George, Montague and Edith. Would you mind having another look ? Thanks, Rick.


Rick Report 3 Apr 2004 11:24

Thanks Lynda, Wonder if I'm getting it confused with Arundel Street, which is where the rest of the Boyles were living in 1841. This is a good lesson - I do keep a list of the negative lookups, but not the reasons why ! Could I be a pain and ask you to look at 11, Arundel Street, Strand too please ? Looking for Boyles and Roberts. I think the match could go either way. ManU have got to be up for it as it's their last chance to win anything this season. Should be good to watch whatever the result though. Best result for Chelsea would be a draw (for the replay) and a punch-up ! Rick.


Rick Report 3 Apr 2004 13:04

Thanks Lynda, Maybe that's what then problem was last time - no number 11. Back to the footie - surely Henry's got to come on soon. Can't see you getting the 2 you need now without him. Rick.


Rick Report 3 Apr 2004 18:48

Hi Lynda, Remember 3 Earl Street from a few days ago ? Well I've found it accidentally in 1841 - it's in St Lukes, Chelsea. Please could you check for Thomas, Ann and John Baines there for me ? Thank you, Rick. p.s. And a big thank you to those nice Spurs players for another 3 points !


Rick Report 3 Apr 2004 21:32

Thanks for looking Lynda. I heard there were some arrests after the match - I guess there will always be some looking for agro. Not from our well-behaved Chelsea boys though I'm sure. Looking forward to Tuesday & dreading it in equal measure ! Rick.

Hi Lynda Could you please do a check for me on 2 Chapel Place, St Annes (poss soho, Westminster) Looking for william burgess born 1831 (+/- 1yr) finsbury middx Thank you Tracey


Tracy Report 3 Apr 2004 23:59

Ok thanks for trying lynda, it was worth a try. Tracey


Catharine Report 6 Apr 2004 22:43

Hello Lynda, Could you look up for me the family of Henry Blore who was either living at 22, Cavendish Street (he was there in 1848) or at 30, Cranbourne Street near Leicester Square (his address in 1852)? Thanks very much for all your trouble, Catharine Andriani


Catharine Report 7 Apr 2004 07:39

Hello Lynda, Sorry, I remembered that I hadn't put the areas at about 02.00 this morning but couldn't face getting out of bed to open up the computer. The Cranbourne Street address is in Soho nowadays, not quite sure if it was called that in 1851. The Cavendish Street address should either be Shoreditch or Marylebone. Sorry for the lack of precision but people weren't very precise about giving their addresses in the trade directories which is all I have to go on. Thanks very much for all your help, Catharine


Catharine Report 7 Apr 2004 08:09

Hello again Lynda, I've just managed to find out that the Cavendish Steet address is definitely in the Marylebone area. Please forget about Shoreditch! Thanks again, Catharine
