Hi Sarah, I would be very grateful for a look up for Charles SKINNER and his wife, Emma. I think he was a Customs Officer, born in Chatham, Kent. His children would be Charles, Emma and Minnie. They were living in Bow on the 1881 census. He would be about 47 years old. An address or ref. no. would be a great help. Many thanks Sheila

Sarah. When you have time could you look for Richard Snelling aged 45/6 born Westminster and his wife Eliza Snelling aged 47/8 born St. Lukes. Don't know if they have children. Believed to be in the Clerkenwell, Holborn or Shoreditch areas. Many thanks. Jean.

Hi Shelia Sorry i could not find the names you were looking for. Was Charles living in Chatham in 1841? I also have the Kent 1841 census ,i could check that if i havn`t done so already. All the best Sarah

Hello Sarah Is your index searched by name? If so could you look up a few for me please James William Brown born 1845 in walthamstow and his wife elizabeth born 1852 in stepney. I am also trying to find an Edward John Edwards born 1856 in lambeth. Thanks Sharon


Sarah Report 20 Nov 2003 12:44

Hi Sharon I found 1 Elizabeth bethnal Green ,Bethnal Green church. Piece 494 Folio 56B age 19. The best i could find with James was age 39 Bethnal Green ,Bethnal Green Church Piece 494 Folio 102 B. As for Edward i could only find 1 age 11. I hope that helps. All the best Sarah

Hi Sarah I think the Elizabeth you found could be the right one. I found James and Elizabeth on the 1881 census and James has been mistranscribed. His name was James William and had been transcribed as F W, maybe that is the case this time. Thanks for looking Sharon
