Please can you look for John Hollobone and his wife Sarah on the 1851, 61 and 71 census records? Do you have access to the 1841 too?

I would like in particular to know their addresses and occupations.

Thanks very much

Hi my name is Barry Soulsby.
I have been attempting to find my birth Mother and my half brother and sister,
Mother:- Lillian Powel(l) nee Soulsby born Tudhoe Co. Durham 1925 her father was Henry Baden Soulsby ( b1901) and her Mother was Emma Lillian Soulsby (nee Todd) died 1925.
Half brother:- Durance Powel(l) born about 1950
Half sister:- Alana Powel(l) born about 1953
At one time they lived at Ferryhill then moved to Stanley ( not sure of the dates)
I have put adverts in the North East papers with no results, so they may have moved or emmigrated some years ago.
If you can help it would be great. I live in South Africa, so not easy for me to check records.
Thanks Barry

Hi Barry

good luck in your search

Hi,

Could you look for a Sarah Banks in the 1871 census. She was born in 1864 in Clerkenwell, London and I've found her in the 1881 census where she was working as a servant in London. Her age was 18 and place of birth was Clerkenwell. I don't have any other family names at the moment.

Thankyou, Emma

Hi Jane-sorry I confused you by putting shepherd after my ancestor's name -he was a shepherd -his name was Matthew Little-he and wife Elizabeth should be in Peebles in 1861 and 1871.They had a daughter Joanna Dick Little in a house called Herthstone,Tweedsmuir,Peebles in 1860 and a son James there in 1869.
Regards,
Joan
