Hello Alter I would very much like some help on this one please. Kezia Clements born 1823 in Bethnal Green she is shown as mother of Robert Smith born 1853 also in Bethnal Green. Cert states father William Joseph Smith mother Kezia Smith formaly Clements. What i am looking for is the marriage of William and Kezia. There is another Kezia Clements who married a James Bonorandi in 1842, but this isnt the one, she is still on 1881 census as Kezia Bonorandi. Many thanks Mo

Yes, I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and buy the birth cert for the one in Tewkesbury. At least I'll find out if he's got a father named Joseph. If that doesn't sort it out I fear that I will need to wait for the 1911 census to get his place of birth resolved. Oh well, just another 5 years to wait..... Pete

Hi AE Long time no see. Just can't seem to find this one on 1891 census.. Looking for Elizabeth Adams born 1860 Ipswich, Suffolk I have her 61 to 71 Ipswich with parents George and Mary Adams. In 1881 I have her at 13 Carr St Ipswich, housemaid age 19. In 1901 she was age 40, prop of Dairy/Milk shop at 3 Greek St Soho with her sister Louisa age 29 born 1872 Ipswich. I found this sister Louisa in London on 1891 census as a housemaid so they were not together then. Can you help? Kat xx


Maureen Report 26 Mar 2006 15:32

Alter Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Thanks for looking for Kazia Clements. I like your suggestions, but , i have discovered there were 2 Kazia Clements, the one we both found that was christened in 1821 St Andrews Holborn, Father George ,Mother Jane, and i suspect because they never seemed to venture outside of Bethnal Green, the other one is mine . born 1823, christened St Matthews Bethnal Green, Father George , Mother Eliza. Also the census i have got for Kazia after her marriage to William says she was born Bethnal Green - if only i could find her marriage - probably Bethnal Green again!! Thanks for your help Mo

joy -the husband is from scotland-there is no marriage-it would have been around the 1840's-therefore i can only surmise it was in scotland- he obviously had a few bob-suggest she might have died in scotland-ie she might have inherited something up there.

The Ego Report 26 Mar 2006 18:37

karen if the kids were born in france they could have been married in france-cant think how you would obtain her name without marriage cert.the maiden name wouldnt show that early in our birth reg's anyway.
