Hi Mary,

Any chance of one more Gerrard lookup for me please on 1841 Staffordshire Census.

Name: Joseph Gerrard
Birth: abt 1786 - Staffordshire, England
Residence: 1841 - Forsbrook in The Parish of Dilhorn, city, Staffordshire, England

I am hoping his wife's name is Mary, and maybe some of his children will be at home.

John b1821
William b1823
Elizabeth b 1826
Mary b1828

I hope I am not taking up too much of your time.

Many thanks

I am looking for info on my great great grandfather william Hassall, b1844 in Shropshire area married mary ann nevitt b1859 and my great grandfather Charlie Hassall b1885 died around 1955 i think his wife was mary but i have nothing solid about that i thing he also had two brothers all i know is they were calledf Gilbert and Fred (no birthdates sorry)
My grandfather was Leslie Hassall.


Mary Report 15 Jan 2008 18:45

Hi Gordon
Really struggling with your Hassall folks(seems they may be well named)
Possible death for Charlie ;
Charlie Hassall age 69 June Qtr 1954 Crewe 10a 235
Do you know where he died??
and a possible birth Charles Hassall Dec Qtr 1885 Nantwich 8a 330

I cannot find on any census William/Mary Hassall with Charles Gilbert and Frederick.

When and where did William marry Marey Nevitt??

Do you have any of the people mentioned in your request on a census???And do you have any birth certs for any of them.

Need more info,do you know if there were any female siblings for Charlie???

Not looking good at the moment.

when was Leslie Hassall born??may have to start from there.

Hi Mary... Is it possible to look-up the following family in 1851, 61, 71 and 91 please? Addresses and occupations are helpful if it's possible?

1851 Huntingdonshire census: William Pratt (c.1823)... Maria his wife (c. 1828)... Susan (c.1849)

1861 census: William Pratt (c. 1824 Hunts)... Maria (c. 1826 Hunts)... Susan (c.1849 Hunts) ...

1871 census (London I think): William Pratt (c.1826)... Maria (c.1826 Hunts)... Ada (c.1867 London) ...

and for 1891 too if possible please?

Many thanks and Happy New Year! K

Leslie was born in Crewe as far as i know in 1914.

Charlie died in Crewe in 1953 according to my Aunt.

Not got a clue as to when or where William and mary married, They hail from Wem in Shropshire.

Charles siblings were Fred 1888 Rose 1891 Minnie 1896 and Fannie 1895

Thats all i have.

Thanks so much for all your help your a true star.
