Oh no, I'll have to keep looking on the census, going archive next week hopefully they will have info


jansmith Report 16 Mar 2013 12:59

no Thomas you would have to buy it :-(


Thomas Report 16 Mar 2013 12:51

I've only found birth registers which are not much use to me, is there any way of finding a birth certificate? :-)


Thomas Report 16 Mar 2013 10:24

I am going to the library anyway, I will post if I find anything :-)


Thomas Report 16 Mar 2013 10:22

Well that sounds about right he was born 20 December interesting fact that his wife Laura's birthday was 3 days after


jansmith Report 16 Mar 2013 10:07

got a dog waiting to go out so will look back at the post later


jansmith Report 16 Mar 2013 09:59

If you remember I explained this was the quarter it was registered so if he was born late Dec. his parents may not have registered it until Jan. so it would be registered in the Jan- March qtr. The cert will show the actual date of birth


Thomas Report 16 Mar 2013 09:49

Thank you patchem I will check one of the kids, also jan write his birthday as march, I thought it was December.


jansmith Report 16 Mar 2013 09:39

sorry Thomas I was just meaning a birth cert that would be a right one so as not to waste money in ending up with one that might not be your family.
William Henry birth posted above is the index needed to get a cert. from GRO that I gave you the link for . You can get the certs from the reg. office for Sheffield if that is easier but the vol. and page numbers are not their entry numbers you would need to ask them for birth William Proctor March quarter 1862


patchem Report 16 Mar 2013 09:32

Jan probably means to get a certificate that you are sure is for one of the children, so that you do not get a 'wrong' one and start looking for the wrong parents.

You have to apply for the birth certificates:


Thomas Report 16 Mar 2013 09:29

No jan I don't think that has been posted, by any chance would that be the birth register, and I still don't underhand what a safe birth certificate is.


jansmith Report 16 Mar 2013 09:06

perhaps this has already been posted

Births Mar 1862
PROCTOR William Henry Sheffield 9c 332


jansmith Report 16 Mar 2013 08:58

If you haven't got a childs birth cert it might be an idea to get a "safe" one i.e perhaps Emily if you think that is the right one to see what details it gives for dad and mothers maiden name


Thomas Report 16 Mar 2013 08:31

I will be going to the library today so I will try and find a birth certificate for William Henry, patchem, I think September 1890 is the correct Emily :-)


patchem Report 15 Mar 2013 23:50

I suggested he was James Procter for birth reg.

And one of these could be Ada
Births Dec 1892
Procter Ada Sheffield 9c 507
Births Jun 1893
Procter Ada Sheffield 9c 625

Births Sep 1890
Proctor Emily Sheffield 9c 563


jansmith Report 15 Mar 2013 23:32

Yes I wonder why Robert

this could be a birth index for one of the children but I haven't found one for James yet

Walter Proctor

Oct-Nov-Dec 1886

patchem Report 15 Mar 2013 23:22

Wonder why he is Robert in 1891 (but same family)

looking at image parents had 7 children married 33 years only Ada single so as I said I think she was the only child still at home
