Greeting's Again. .... Jo Jo Sorry no Transcriptions of the Marriage within my resources I have to hand..... Other than Jul. ~ Aug. ~ Sept Qrt. 1900. Walter Burbidge. ~ Sarah Elizabeth Ward. Leicester. Cert No. 7a 452. Having done some digging around This is my Educated guess for the 1891. Census returns for Sarah & Parents :- RG 12 / 2541 / 125 / Page. 21. Leicester. St. Leonard's Parish. No. 36 Cardinal Street. George Ward. Head. Mar. 32. Dyer Lab. b Ilkeston Derbyshire. Maria. Wife. 32. b Market Harborough. Leicestershire. Ada. Dau. 13. Scholar. b Leicester. SARAH. Dau. 10. Ditto. b . Ditto. Maria. Dau. 8. Ditto. b . Ditto. Eliza. Dau. 4. Ditto. b . Ditto. Ellen. Dau. 1. b . Ditto. INDEXED AS HUME. ( Clearly Hunt on Image. ) Now Cardinal Street. ( To day it's Just B 4. B & Q on St. Margaret's Way ) was a stones throw away from Emerald Street....Ummm If you can find out the Church they married at then I can have a look at Records Office Wigston next time I'm there or if you flushed with cash call for the Cert using the above ref. 7 a 452....... MIKE.

Hi All, My Grandfather on my Father's side, Alfred Webber, had at least one shop in Leicester during the 1920/30s I think. His occupation is shown as General Shopkeeper on my parents marriage certificate from 1949 although I don't think he still had any shops by then. I have been told that one shop was in Fleet St. This by my cousin, whose grandparents, the PIlgrims, had an opposition shop in the same street. Does anybody have any information on either the Webber or Pilgim shops? Paul

Greeting's Again Beverly...... If we are talking about Joseph Henry & Sarah Ann Hardy Living at No. 66. Victoria Road Leicester. on the 1891. Census ? :- RG 12 / 2522 / 38 / Page.18. Then I think this is the one you want ..... April. ~May.~ June. Qrt. 1889. Joseph Henry Hardy. ~ Sarah Ann HART. Barrow Upon Soar.District. Cert No. 7 a. 301. In 1889 The Parish of Belgrave came under this District confusing I know..... but there you go......../:o( And I belive the Parish Church for Belgrave was St. Peter's.

Greeting's again Beverley UPDATE your records please 1st. Daughter of Thomas & Catherine should read ELIZA not Alice And when you come to look them up for the 1861. Census they are INDEXED as SHELTON RG 9 / 2288 / 17 / Page 28. No. 16 Lead Street. And if I've got the right Samuel Stretton ( Thomas's Father ) He was born Coleorton. Leicestershire. MIKE.

Hi Mike, I wondered if you could help me solve a problem again. My grandfather was Isaac Ernest Blackwell, born in Shepshed in 1875 (I think) He appears on the 1881 census aged 6 living at the Old Plough Inn, Hallgate, Shepshed, with the rest of the family. He married in 1898 (Dec 26) and his age shows as 24 (from marriage cert) 1891 census is a servant in Barkby and on the 1901 he his married and living in Sandiacre, Derbys. I have gone through from 1870 to 1879 on Ancestry Beta and cannot find the details of his birth registration. I have found all of the other siblings. He died in 1938 and the reg details show his birth year as 1875 Can you suggest any other way of finding the birth info. Regards Marlene

Mike. The Leicester Lad.(GC) Report 22 Feb 2006 22:12

Greeting's Again Marlene..... Mixed results ..... The Bad New's..... I've not found the birth records YET ... ( Think it's under a variant of Blackwell ). Have trawled 1873 ~76. Closest is :- Oct Qrt. 1873. Blackwell = Male . Shardlow District Cert. 7 b. 414. Diseworth comes under Shardlow District see my last comment The Good New's ...Got him on the 1891. Census Indexed as J.E. Blackwell. RG 12 / 2523 / 85 / Page 1 Leicestershire. Barkby. Main Street. I. E. Blackwell. Unmar. 17. Farm Servant. b Shepshed. Servant to a William Perkins Farmer. Let me have a look at Wigston Records Office for you & get back to you tomorrow ? ... By the way it was Hail gates. DISEWORTH not Shepshed on the 1881. :0) MIKE.


MarleneB Report 23 Feb 2006 08:01

Hi Mike, Thanks for your efforts, I don't think it can be the 1873 shardlow as he has a brother Tom born q4 1873 and his sister Sarah Ann q 2 1877 were both registered in Loughborough district Sorry about the 1881 address knew it was Diseworth but brain wasn't working - again. Regards marlene

Bev Since our families seem to cross a bit, have your Stretton's married a Ward 1890's, have an Eliza Stretton as a marriage witness and am sure it will turn out to be Elizabeth Ward, just not had time to look properly yet. ALSO Bev, have you or are you looking for a marriage between John Cook c 1820 born Shilton and Elizabeth c 1818 born St Margs, Leics Elaine
