Hi Karen
I obviously gave you the wrong family which unfortunately fitted with the info you supplied.
This of course is the problem with taking info from the 1841 census which has so little detail and so much inaccurate detail as regrds age and relationships.
My apologies,do you need more lookups for them or have you got all the info you need from another source??

Hi Mary,

Would you mind looking up the following family for me please.

Name: Sarah Dawson
Birth: abt 1838 - Colchester , Essex, England
Residence: 1861 - city, Surrey, England
Residence: 1871 - city, Surrey, England
Residence: 1891 - township, city, Essex, England

Spouse: Adam

I would like to know if they had any children and any other household members staying with them.

Hope I am not asking too much, I am trying to prove a link between her and another CATER who was living in St Olave Southwark.

Many thanks for your help

bye Helen


Karen Report 28 Apr 2008 03:29

HI Mary, Thanks for that. The info that I have got for James Gibson 1823 St Bridges was that he married an Elizabeth unknown maiden name 1825 and that had 7 children: Frederick 1847 St Georges Southwark - Jesse 1850-1889 Bermondsey he married Emma Hurley 1851 in Islington in 1871 - Emily 1853-1888 St Georges she married George May in 1870 Whitechapel- Elizabeth 1855 St Georges - Thomas 1857 St Lukes - George 1861-1861 St Lukes - Alfred 1862 Middlesex. The only reason I know that this is correct is because Jesse is my g-g-grandfather. I dont know his mother Elizabeths maiden name. Karen x

Hi Mary, I just wondered is you'd had any luck finding James Howard and Harriett Roper in 1851?
Many thanks, K

Thank you Mary,
spent months chasing birth cert's even in Birmingham reg district where a Ellen Bennett was born they have no person on their list so far no luck I know she was my great grandma have her marriage cert. I will keep on trying
Many thanks for your time & help.


Mary Report 25 Apr 2008 23:32

Hi Wendy
Sorry no sign of any Bennett families in Chipping Norton on 1861 census.
I suggest you send for the birth cert to confirm where in the Chipping Norton Reg Dist she was born and the names of her parents.



Mary Report 25 Apr 2008 23:30

Hi Bunty
I strongly recommend that you send for the marriage cert for the Harvard folks to confirm names and occupations of both their fathers.
Incidentally his name is shown on the index as Thomas John Harvard and this is the name you should use when you order the cert from GRO.
If you get back to me when you have the cert I will try to help further.

hi Mary.

how kind of you to give of your time.

As i am 73 years and very new to computers i could do with some help, trying to find things out is getting me very frustrated,so here goes .

My father stanley thomas harvard parents were john thomas harvard and gwenllian harvard. they were married in 1917 third quater in merthyr tydfill south wales,although my father was born 7 years before!.

Iam trying to find out about my great grandparents. Ithink she was named sarah and he may have been john thomas or thomas john,i know they had a number of children the youngest was margaret.

they originated from brecon in the 1800s but moved to bedlinog where most of them bought a buisness.

Ithink one of them was solomon and he went to pensylvania in america

themarriage of gwenllian andj t harvard is on 11a 1352.

I hope that you can help in any small way.

kind regards bunty harvard
