I can't find a death for William Lucock, Sr ........................ but it must be between 1831 and 1840


SylviaInCanada Report 25 Sep 2014 03:31

there are two versions of William Lucock's marriage to Eliza on familysearch, with slightly different place names. I don't know enough about Suffolk geography to explain why. They ARE the same marriage! ...................

Name: William Lucock
Spouse's Name: Eliza Colby

Event Place: Melton,Suffolk,England

Henry's wife on the 1841 is shown as Eliza, not Elizabeth

Could his first wife have died, and he re-married?

I found this on the familysearch site ................

Name: Henry Nichols
Spouse's Name: Eliza Lucock
Event Date: 17 May 1840
Event Place: Saint Mary,Woodbridge,Suffolk,England
Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M06325-1 , System Origin: England-ODM , GS Film number: 0919637, 0919638

the marriage registration from

Marriages Jun 1840 (>99%)

Hi all
Sally glad to hear your OH is back home again - sorry you had so much hassle.

Just got back from a lovely birthday meal - we splashed out just this once.

Went to a lovely steak house around 13 miles out and it was worth every penny.

Cynthia please sit down - we have a week off and are doing a few day trips and resting.

I will have to go back to overtime once I get the all clear from the eye hospital on the 8th. My bank account needs help.

Hope you are all keeping well

Another query from my Nicholls family. Would very much appreciate your thoughts.

Henry Nicholls (Can be spelt Nichols) my 2nd great grand uncle married to Elizabeth Blackshaw had a large number of children. They were from Sudbury, Suffolk.

On the 1841 Census the following are noted :

Henry Shipwright - the Nicholls family were barge builders
Charles - also a shipwright

There are then two entries that appear to be in the same household
William Lucock 12
Eliza Lucock 10

On the 1851 Census, Henry is shown with his wife Eliza, Eliza Lucock (Daughter) and Elizabeth Lucock (Granddaughter)

I am puzzled about the relationship between Henry Nicholls and Eliza Lucock. Could she have been adopted?

Hi Everyone

Sally very happy to hear your OH is home again,it is very scary not being able to breath,hope he makes a speedy recovery.

Turned very cold again here,the weather cannot make its mind up at present.

I am starting my tree again ,I have not done much of late on it,going to stick to one branch at a time I get less confused that way.

I am a bit like Sylvia and stick to the direct line then put in the Siblings as I find them

It is nice to see everyone comes back every now and then just to see what we are all doing .

Better get my housework done then off shopping to spend my Birthday money,I did rather well this year :-D

Love to you all and special hello to Reece and Robert,hope you are both well <3

Suex <3 :-D

I am so glad to hear that your OH is home, Sally xxxxx


Sally Report 23 Sep 2014 21:48

Good to hear they have stabilised him. Hope the blood tests go OK and he comes home.


I try like you to go back along the direct line. An exception was made with the Bonney family who emigrated to Australia. It has been fascinating plotting their considerable success from, in one case, a criminal base.


Sally Report 22 Sep 2014 21:56

hello all

thanks for your good wishes he might be home tomorrow depending on blood tests fingers crossed

Arthur it depends on how interesting they are and a couple of times the person being third or fourth mother in law cousin etc have been more closely related futher down the line

SylviaInCanada Report 22 Sep 2014 16:59


short answer .....................


I don't go that far

I go in the direct line (parents, grandparents, gt grandparents, etc) as far back as I can

so that has me following 2 parents, 4 grandparents, 8 gt, and so on

I also try to get the names of all siblings of the direct line

If it is easy to find, I find what happened to each sibling, including spouse, name of spouse's parents (often only the father and forename of mother), and an idea of whether they had any children.

and that really is that

Having said that .................. I have taken things for a particular sibling much further on at least 2 occasions, once in my tree, once in OH's

That was because their lives suddenly got intriguing ................ the one in my tree went to NZ after marrying a German in London at short notice (not I think because they had to!), boarded a ship within 2 days along with his brother and his new wife .............. and they had a very interesting life as pioneers down there.


Old Report 22 Sep 2014 08:31

At what point would you suggest you stop investigating the expanding family tree.

I received a hint on Ancestry relating to "mother-in-law of 3rd cousin 4x removed"

Would you incorporate this info?


Old Report 21 Sep 2014 01:01


Thanks for your efforts.

I did know of Yohim's birth details, but nothing after that. You would think his death should be recorded against his birth name Yohim and not as August his third name. As Yohim is very unusual it should leap out of the records, so I think he died as August and there are so many over the years.

Jean Saunders is a distant cousin and I have been advising her of changes to her tree. She is descended from the sister of my 2 x Gt Grandfather.

I have the details of the 2 children who died before the 1911 Census, and Doris died at 21.

The electoral register for 1908 only shows August - the father - as women did not have the vote. I found a Phone Book for 1906 that showed August worked from home as a hairdresser.

Thanks for looking

You would think your own doctor would know your OH well enough to know that hospital was required.

I hope their treatment will get rid of the chest problems and he will be home soon.


SylviaInCanada Report 20 Sep 2014 23:58



hope all goes well with your OH. xxx


Sally Report 20 Sep 2014 23:17

hello all

my oh is in hospital with an infection and phmonia as it sounds he had a chesty cough last weekend and by Wednesday he had a bad do when I was at blind club he would not have me phone the doc

when daughter came thursda lunch time she phoned the doc and here in lincs the are trying a new system the doc phones back so we said tell them you need a doc to come out to you as we were doing the grosery shopping but when we got back he had said he would go to the surgery

daughter phoned doc and said we need one to come which one did listened to his chest and said heneeded anti biotics so he prescribed the common one

he was not very good Friday later tat morning he was having trouble breathing I phoned the doc when they rang back she listened to his breathing and to dial 999 the first responders came they were firemen about five mins later the ambulance gave him a nebuliser that helped then took him to hospital
