Billesdon District ( which covers Great Glenn. ) Cert No. 7a. 25. Gertrude stayed with Julia’s parents Thomas & Sarah Clarke. In Great Glenn 1891. Census. RG 12./ 2495. / 129. / Page. 20. Down as Gertrude CLARKE Grand Daughter aged 8.Scholar b Glenn Magna. MARRIAGE FOUND.:- JOHN WESTON.(20) ~ JULIA CLARKE. (18) 4th. May. 1884. St Cuthbert Parish Church Great Glenn. John’s Father :- John Weston. Julia’s Father:- Thomas Clarke. Cert No. 7a. 69. Billesdon District. Gertrude joins the Family of John & Julia Following the deaths of Thomas & Sarah both in their 60's on the 1891 Census :- 1901. Census RG 13. / 2956. / 98. / Page. 10. King Street Oadby.

Blaby District ( Which covered Oadby at this time ) Cert No. 7a. 40. Sorry….. but the Free BMD has not got any details of Marriages to trawl 1906 ~ 25. But it’s updated each month so that will have to wait To do it via my other site ( pay as you view) would prove too expensive. By the Way I did look for those marriages of Hannah & Elizabeth & John Pickering for six hours last night but could not match any thing up due to they seem to change their Villages were born in on Census returns seen………. Sorry . MIKE.

Hi Mike Are you off to the records office tomorrow?, would quite like a look up with a couple of deaths but can wait if you have alot to do. I have these 2 which I think are 2 of my Ward children I didn't know about (might be my last fishmongers grandchildren!) Amina Leonora Ward d o buriel 2/4/1879 age 6 months Raglan st St Mary buriel no 42088 George Isacc d o buriel 15/3/1871 age 3 months Royal East St Leics St Margaret buriel no 25792 The others in the grave plot I know all about, these are between census returns and buried at Welford Road so as yet this is all I know. BEV/MIKE Shall we all meet up again this year when the weather improves??? And thank you for all your help, never would have got this far without you Elaine

hello Sarah We all met by chance at a talk about boatmen but it was all a bit of a mess, I met Mike but we didn't know we had to book the talk so we went to the pub as there wern't any spare places, an extra night was put on for the talk where I met Bev, so we haven't actually had a proper meet but I thought it wauld be nice so we can arrange one when the weather perks up, where abouts do you live?
