But I’m sorry…..I didn’t Find a JOSEPH Moore (c 1821 ) …. Here is a Potted History…….. All Saints Parish Church. Gilmorton. Entry No. 23. Timothy Moore Married a Mary TRUE. Both of this Parish. With the consent of the Parents, by Banns. By Me :- D.J. Burdett. Rector. Timothy signed by his own signature. Mary by her own Mark = + This Third Day November 1817. Witt’s :- John Williams & Daniel Woods. Moore Christening’s found for Parents Timothy & Mary Moore.:- Entry 108. Thomas Moore. June 7th.1818. Father Timothy Frame Work Knitter. Mother Mary. But it looks like Mary Died just after this birth. :- Burial found :- Entry No. 59. Mary Moore 4th. June. 1818. Aged. 19*. Years. Nothing found until :- Entry No. 46.

May. 1831. Entry. No. 442. Edward Moore. 25th. May. 1833. All the above Christening’s give the occupation of Father as Frame Work Knitter. There was one Entry worthy of note :- Thomas ( Illegitimate ) Son of ANN no surname given 28th. July. 1822. Occupation of unnamed Father = Frame Work Knitter. Other entries worthy of note found :- Christening’s :- Kitty KETTLE. Daughter of William & Kitty. 18th. Feb. 1820. But Kitty died latter on Buried 16th. August. 1820. Aged 8 Months Old.

Hi long lost sort of 'cousin' BEV Their daughter Annie Elizabeth Hunt, my great grandmother marries a Moore so let me know what you find with your Moore's. Don't know who Emma Moore the witness is yet. ALSO I have found a GREEN in Foundry Lane who marries a Ward who I am sure has some of my Ward descendants living with him, the parents are not around and the rest of the older children are living together. It's a Ward that marries a Warren which takes us back to our boatman!!! (Ward daughter then marries a Moore) Elaine

PS Bev I haven't worked too far backwards with this lot yet so the stuff you mentioned is all new but looks like I 've found my weekend job. If you want a copy of this marriage let me know and I will send you it when I find the ref I need to order the certificate. If it's not on FreeBmd you might have a bit of a wait though till I get into town. Elaine

Elaine noticed your post regarding FreeBMD, did you know that you can look at the images for all? the the listings for Births Marriages and deaths up to 1910. You need to go to Home Page and select View Images. When on this page follow instructions and you will be able to see the pages same as 1837. Only thing, it is very slow to do as not indexed and you must find the page yourself. Hope this helps. JoJo

Hi JoJo I keep forgetting that, I think it was a postings of Nells not long ago and I realised. Silly me was sitting in the bath last night after I left the message for Bev and realised I could have looked but that's me all over, go on a mad dash and forget the obvious Elaine


Angela Report 12 Nov 2005 15:23

Hi Mike - could you please check to see who was living at 47 Belgrave Gate Leicester on the 1901 census? (by the way I have tried looking myself on 1901 and it comes up with Belgrave Rd and Belgrave Ave and that's it. )I'm hoping it's a Charles McNeil - he is listed in Wrights Directory for 1904 as living there and he was 'mgr. director LCR Horse Repos.' (possibly something to do with the Trams?)and if so - very interested to see who he was living with - (I am trying to trace my G Gran Annie McNeil) Many thanks in advance
