Sarah , i looked for them earlier , but since you have reminded me and i have nowt better to do, will try again for you


Sarah Report 28 Sep 2005 21:07

Thank you Jess - I'm beginning to wonder if they are in one of the missing batches - grrr! Just having someone else cast their eyes over it helps - I'm a bit Norton'd out at the mo! S.


*****BMDMAD***** Report 28 Sep 2005 21:07

oh well - worth asking. I'll have to wait for the certs to arrive and hope ancestry get 1851 on soon.

Jess I've looked for these and can't find them, I'd be ever so grateful if you can in 1871, 1891 or 1901. Robert Duckworth, b c 1835 Manchester, occ Drover Sarah Duckworth wife b c 1839 Salford Mary A Duckworth b c 1870 Manchester Nancy Duckworth b 10 May 1872 Manchester Mary Duckworth b c 1875 Manchester Robert Duckworth b c 1878 Salford Nancy gets married in 1892 so she should be with the family in 1891 but I can't find them. I got this info from 1881, on Nancy's birth cert it gives her mother as Sarah, formerly Copley but I can't be sure its the same Sarah as in 1881. I'm off to work in about half an hour, sorry to post n run but if you need any more info just ask. Rachel

Sarah Report 28 Sep 2005 21:21

Oh Jess you and me both! Can't tell you how much I yearn for a Xerxes or Xenia rather than John and Mary! Thanks for looking - they seem destined to end up on my growing 'disappeared' file. S

Rachel Report 28 Sep 2005 21:29

Jess Just you keep going there! Just found their marriage in 1857 &, I think, them in 1861 with a 10 month old called Sarah. He was a beer retailer & they have 2 lodgers both called NK! I'm gonna order the marriage cert but I thought the occupation might help you. Unsure if baby Sarah survives. Thanks very much for this. Rachel


Rachel Report 28 Sep 2005 21:42

Jess I've been trying to find them for ages, am beginning to think they must've gone on a nice long holiday around the time of the 1871 census! I've gotta go to work now, unfortunately, I hate night shifts! Thanks for looking, maybe one day they'll miraculously appear! (fingers crossed). Will wait for the marriage cert, see what Robert claims to be doing for a living and maybe their fathers names might help. Only got Nancy's birth cert through today which at least helped me to find the marriage reference. Thanks again. Rachel


Jennifer Report 28 Sep 2005 22:35

Jess, I have tried to find this family before without success. Maybe you will be able to succeed. I hope so. Found on 1841 census, Barugh, Barnsley District Dellamy HEWITT (Dellamy spelt different ways and he is also known as Dally and Daley), head, age 20,coalminer Elizabeth, age 20 Mark, age 5 Martha, age 3 Joseph age 1 Thomas, age 9 months? Apparently 1851 for the district either doesn’t exist or is illegible. 1861 cant find them anywhere although there is another Dallamy Hewitt on 1861 but he is too young to be the one I am looking for but with a name like that he must be related in some way. By 1861 there should be a daughter Ann HEWITT, born according to later census, in Gawber, Barnsley, abt 1846. By the time of Ann’s marriage to George CARR in 1866 her father is deceased. Daley Hewitt as he is called on her marriage certificate. In 1881, there is a Joe HEWITT age 41, born Higham, Barnsley living as a boarder with Ann and her husband, George Carr and family at 47 Providence St, Barnsley. I have assumed that this Joe HEWITT is Ann’s brother, son of Dallamy and Elizabeth shown on 1841 census. This is a definite brick wall for me so any help would be so very much appreciated. Jenny

Kim I hope Jess doesn't mind, but I found these: Buddell Sarah Hetty age 64 Southwark 1d 20 Death Q1 1905 Buddell James F age 82 Billericay 4a 688 Death Q1 1918 Buddell James Paddington 1a 17 Death Q1 1897 Buddell James William Southwark 1d 20 Death Q2 1907 Buddell James age 62 Truro 5c 91 Death Q4 1896 Hope they may be of some help. Suzy


Suzy Report 28 Sep 2005 22:43

Kim Do you know if Charles had any siblings? There is a Sarah Buddell aged 60 on the 1901 with a son George, aged 30? What do you think? She is a widow. Suzy


Eileen Report 29 Sep 2005 08:46

hi jess, can you find THOMAS HOUGHTON and wife ELIZABETH on 1841 census please .have no address except LANCASHIRE , he was born1759 she was born 1763, believe he died about 1848 still trying to confirm thanks a lot EILEEN BELIEVE liverpool area thanks eileen


Rachel Report 29 Sep 2005 16:12

Bernice Thanks for looking for them too. I might keep an eye on that Robert, it could well be him. I just think they are there, just a major transcription error away! Another maybe - there's a Sarah H Duckworth married in Salford in 1879 to Thomas H White she could be the 10 mnth old in 1861. When I look at the census page 1881 for Robert & Sarah Duckworth, there are Thomas White, Sarah White & baby Sarah H White 2 doors away. Maybe ..... If only I could find the family in 1871! Rachel


Unknown Report 29 Sep 2005 16:16

Jess can you look up Emily Edith Crossman for me please age either one or two on the 1901 I know there are two listed in Middlesex. the households and addresses would be fantastic. xxhugxx
