Dumpling Report 18 Jul 2014 17:01

My G Grandfather George Tomlinson born 1860 Holymoorside Derbyshire. father William, mother Jane Green , they wed in Chesterfield 1859 both William and Janes fathers were also William.. Although I can trace George right through until his death that is it , cannot find an other records births deaths census returns, tried every way can think of. Then my aunt told me that my grandmother was a Quaker, so could William and Janes family been Quakers too, would that explain the lack of records? Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Dumpling - like that!

Not totally sure what you mean, as you know his birthplace but say you don't have census and certs? Do you mean prior to marriage?

You say you can trace George right through to his death - what records have you found him on, please, if not censuses? and when was his death?

Having said that, I can't see him on census returns.
Wild guess, as I can't see the birth of an Enzor - could that be what he was known as??:

Ricochet Report 19 Jul 2014 08:21

religion has nothing to do with civil records

The birth may not have been registered, as it was before 1875,but his marriage and death certainly should be


EDITED


george could have been registered under GREEN

Ensor was registered in JFM 1860, and the parents didn't marry till AMJ 1859, so no way could george have been conceived after the marriage


Marriages Jun 1859 (>99%)
Green Jane Chesterfield 7B 868 Scan available - click to view
Tomlinson William Chesterfield 7b 868

The other possibility is that he was actually Ensor, but didn't like the name and decided to call himself George

there is NO record on freebmd for Ensor apart from the birth

ArgyllGran

ArgyllGran Report 19 Jul 2014 11:35

As we don't yet know where Dumpling found the details she quoted re George, maybe she thinks this is his birth:

Births Sep 1860 (>99%)
TOMLINSON George Chesterfield 7b 499

when perhaps Ensor/Enzor may be the right person. Enzor's parents and place of residence certainly match what she says, and there doesn't seem to be any census record of a likely George Tomlinson, except 1881 (above).

But of course we can't say whether the George in 1881 is George or Ensor/Enzor.

We really need Dumpling to come back and tell us where she got her info.


[EDIT: PM sent to let Mary/Dumpling know she has replies.]

Dumpling Report 19 Jul 2014 21:38

Thank you everybody for your help. Explanation... George is my great grandfather had lots of paperwork on him after he married my grandmother in Plymouth and could back it up with census returns. My Aunt also wrote down every thing she could remember about him. So she knew he was born in Holymoorside, his parents were William Tomlinson and Jane Green. I sent for their marriage certificate .Found a birth in 1860 in Chesterfield for a George ( the one ArgllGran quoted ) so thought that might have been him, also found the census for 1881 where he is a servant and also just a possible in the previous census , again as a farm servant. . Could not find him with his parents as George but did actually see the "Enzor" and did wonder about it. Never come across the ones for Jane , so many thanks for that help. Ditto for the ones for William in Brampton. Although I know there was a Tomlinson family in Brampton because I came across a Samuel Tomlinson in the Old Brampton burials.. Again it was Aunt who said that Sussannah, my great grandmother was a Quaker. When I have been stuck in the past it has been possible to look at local church records because the local clergyman usually made absolutely sure about BDM's but because I was so stuck on this family was clutching at straws for why I was having so much trouble and not being near enough to visit records offices in the area. Again many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to help.

You can't always rely on what people 'remember'

What exactly does the man's marriage cert say about him, and his father?

You haven't even said who he married

As you have Susanna Phillips (c1860) in your tree, my posts above must be the right people

Note that George wasn't sure where he was born, except that it was not Derbyshire until 1911

And he was certainly born before 1860
