Hi, Sorry I've been offline due to major computer probs and sick kids! Am back now and will repost my original message so you can remember me. 'I am looking for Francis Kennedy (c1849) in the 1861. He was born in Bermondsey and his fathers name was John. I can find no trace of him at all before 1869 when he married, not even a birth certificate. I got his fathers name from his marriage certificate and his occupation was listed as fellowship porter. That's about all I have to go on and would really appreciate a look up.' You asked me if I had him in any census after marriage - yes, all except the 1871. I can find no birth ref but on all census it states that he was born in Bermondsey. In 1872 he is listed as 'seaman Merchant Service' on his daughters birth certificate and in 1881 as a 'mariner' but after that as a fish porter. But in 1861 he would have only been about 12 so he shouldn't really have been away at sea at that point. In 1871 I cannot find him or his wife - maybe he or both of them are at sea? Any help gratefully received and here's fingers crossed the computer holds out for a bit longer! Lorraine

Hi Jess, Thanks for looking for my Edwin Hollender. Maybe he was just hiding when the census was taken or those aliens struck again. Jane

Hi Jess, Yes that's definitely the family living in Hollinders Lane in 1881. I did see somewhere that the road was named after them! I'm not sure that Edwin Halldren would be the right one. My Edwin is usually something to do with bricks or tiles and is always born in Walsall. He must be really badly mistranscribed! Jane

Hi Jess, I've been looking for Edwin Hollender in 1861 and 1881 censuses. He is on the 1871 census in Walsall Wood with his parents Joseph and Rebecca (transcribed as Hollmb!), age 13, Tile Worker but he is called Edward. This must be him as they didn't have an Edward according to the parish records. The next one I can find him in is 1891 with his parents again (still in Walsall Wood) - this time age 34, married and a labourer in a brick yard. Wife Martha Ann is visiting her mother in Norton Canes with children. In 1901 he has moved to Wye in Kent and is Edwin J. Hollender with wife Martha Ann and 2 children. I found his baptism entry: 04 Nov 1860 Edwin Joseph, son of Joseph & Rebecca Hollinder Tile Maker of Vigo, Walsall His marriage to Martha Ann Eccleston was Q1 1887 in Walsall. I think probably most of the Vigo in Walsall is missing in 1861 census (if that's where they were) but I would really like to find him in 1881. I would be so grateful if you could track him down. Jane

I would be most grateful for any help to try to find my gg aunt in 1891 and 1901. In 1871 she is Catherine Carew b. abt 1856 Manchester. Married James Burkenshaw in 1875. at Barton upon Irwell. In 1881 she is Kate Birkenshaw living in Leeds. She and James have a son John W b. abt 1876. After this, even though I realise that the name is open to various spellings, I seem to have lost them, and would really appreciate it if you could take a look. Sue
