Hello all,
I would like to copy and paste the replys so I can send via email to my friend. I have highlighted everything and while it is still highlighted clicked on copy, moved to a word doc and clicked paste but all that comes up are the headings from each message.
Am I doing something wrong.

Many thanks
Anne

Thankyou Londenbelle,
At least we know of the siblings now so may be able to find him through them.

We know he died before his sons wedding in 1880 as it states on his marriage cert,

You would think with a name like ebenezer he would be easily found but she has done alot of work on this one and still cant come up with him.

I dont know if the Tompkins in the 1881 census are related. A possibility as Mary ann amelia Vickers nee Tompkins named her son Joseph Henry Vickers as well.

On the marriage cert he has Robert as a shoemaker. In 1861, I think Ebenezer is a boot ... something??

If so my guess would be that Robert is just an error on Thomas' part.

I might be inclined to get Thomas' birth cert.

Hello Jan,
This isnt for me but yes thomas G Vickers is the firm connection in this.
On his marriage cert it says his father is Robert Vickers but my friend seems to think it is ebenezer.
I see you posted Thomas G Vickers birth so was he registered as Tomkins.

Well, here is the marriage:

Marriages Mar 1859 (>99%)
Tomkins Mary Ann Amelia Poplar 1c 906
Vickers Ebenezer Poplar 1c 906

I'm a bit confused to be honest. Is it possible to work backwards rather than forwards? I assume your ancestor is Thomas G. Vickers.

When was Thomas born?

AnotherAnneinGlos Report 27 Jan 2013 18:13

This is for someone who asked me for help but dont have ancestry anymore or know where to go on this one. Complicated so I will and be clear.
What I am trying to find out is Ebenezer Vickers the same person as Robert Vickers. Here goes with the information the person already has so people dont waste there time looking up information we already have.
Ebenezer Vickers b 1838 Lambeth. parents thomas rock Vickers b abt 1805 middlesex, mother Ann Morris abt 1805 wales. Cant be found on the 1841 census.
Ebenezer marries Mary Ann amelia Tomkins in 1859. Not sure where but the marriage banns have him as ebenezer.
Can not find in 1851 ensus. In 1861 he is living with mary and son Joseph henry vickers again not sure where as the info hasnt been passed on to me.

Mary had a illigitimate son thomas G vickers who in the 1861 census is living with her parents Thomas and amelia tomkins at 2 Chapel st Lambeth.

On thomas G marriage cert it has his fathers name down as Robert vickers (deceased) this was 1880.
In 1881 mary ann Vickers was living as Amelia Moss wife of James moss and daughter Louisa in camberwell, 1891 in deptford.
In 1897 she dies and in the margin of her death cert it says "correction" Ann amealia vickers widow of Ebenezer vetified by her son joseph Henry.

So after all this information the points are there is no trace of ebenezer at all apart from the 1861 census. Is Ebenezer and robert the same person. Can anyone find him anywhere.
Help would be very much appreciated and if anyone would like to rewrite this clearer then please do so.

Anne
