Mel, yes very odd that nothing shows at all for Annie Dewey. I think checking the workhouse birth registers for any details would be next step.

This birth could be worth looking into for Annie Snr. It is mistranscribed as Dewney on Ancestry. I can't see her in any census or deaths etc

Births Sep 1865 (>99%)

I'm going with the adopted daughter at the moment. The address is Bulwell which is the area that the family lived in and also my aunt can remember the name Morley being mentioned.

Andrew it just seems funny that we can't find Annie Dewey senior or her dau till she marries. Percy is from Nottingham so the dau must have stayed around there.

Andrew

Andrew Report 24 Jan 2013 17:34

Just checked the Bingham workhouse records, and the birth registers do exist at Nottingham Archives, so possibly next port of call

Hmmmm still no luck looking for either of the Annie's

There is a marriage for Annie Emma Dewey to a Percy Lane and someone has them on their tree on Ancestry.

The owner has nothing on Annie not even her birth.

Kenneth Is Annie junior your grt grandmother please? and do you know if she married a Lane.
