Jack Report 11 Feb 2006 23:16

Jess, I'm new-ish to this, and I'm so pleased to have found someone offering to do lookups on the censuses for me! I'm trying to sort out details of my grandfather who was orphaned, and went to live with his uncle, but not sure when etc, or what brothers and sisters he had; so I hope you can help. His name was Edward Hardman, born 05/07/1891 in Harwood St. Pendleton, Salford (maybe listed as Manchester) His parents were Edwin and Mary Ann Flowers, don't know their DoBs. In 1901, he would either still be in Pendleton, or moved to his Uncle Ralph Hardman, who lived at Newtown, New Mills. The trouble is, half of Newtown is in Derbsyhire, and half in Cheshire, so if the census is organised by county, I realise I am asking you rather a lot!


Jack Report 11 Feb 2006 23:18

Oops, forgot to ask if you could tell me who else was living at the same house as Edward Hardman on the 1901 census!

jack- leave it with me, will look again in the morning. Did Ralph have wife? (emma maybe?)


Jack Report 11 Feb 2006 23:42

I don't know what Ralph's wife was called, assuming he had one. I can ask my dad tomorrow, if he remembers his great-aunt's name. (After all, she would be a sort of alternate grandmother, I suppose)

Jess, have just remembered the 1881 will show Daniel seniors birth place. Right, checked same and it was Haydock, Lancashire, so guess your first find is probably the one. Can you provide fuller details from that one when you get a chance? Pity he does not seem to have been with his parents, wonder if they were dead by then. I don't suppose there was an Ann Cook in the house too, or as a neighbour? He married her at the end of Census year.

Pat She is 28 he is 27 and a railway porter (GWR) Grace is 2 the image is clear. she was Catherine Stentiford pre marriage - yes? Name: Stentiford, Catharine Louisa Record Type: Marriages Quarter: December Year: 1897 District: Plympton St Mary County: Cornwall Devon Volume: 5b Page: 410


Jack Report 12 Feb 2006 16:45

Jess, Thanks for doing that for me. I suspect that the younger 'Edwin' listed in 1901(born 1892 approx) is probably my Granddad 'Edward' born 1891. I assume that my great Grandma Mary Ann must have died between 1891 and 1901. My thinking on the Edward/Edwin confusion is that its unlikely that great Granddad would have sent Edward off to live with his uncle, while keeping Edwin (just 1 or 2 yrs younger) at home. Thanks again Jack

Hi Jess,how are you? Looking for an 1891 look up if you can please, Lilly Louisa Chambers,born 1888 Lincoln Frederick Chambers born 1889 Lincoln Martha Chambers abt 1856 (mother) Lincolnshire George Chambers,father (date unknown)Lincolnshire? Not sure what George did, Have Martha ,Lilly and Frederick in 1901 as visitors in St Mary Le Wigford,Lincoln but no sign of George. Lilly certainly married,lived and died in the same parish. There is a Lilly Chambers of similiar age in Nth Scarle in 1891 with Lewry/Lewary as mother and single with 4 children,but that is a different Lilly. Don't panic for any speed,won't be back till the weekend. 1901 Ref RG13/3062 Lincoln Lincoln Home Folio 27 Page 46 Thanks very much Glen xxx
