Hello All!! Looking for another elusive Butler!! Still haven't found Edwin Henry Butler (born 1868, Leicester) in 1881 - he's not at home with his parents (maybe he snuck off to be with his girlfriend and her parents didn't know he was there????) The surname is given to being misspelt!! In 1861, Edwin Henry's uncle John Thomas Butler is proving elusive and just wondered if any eagle eyes out there could spot him?? In 1851 he is unmarried, aged 16 and living with his brother Edward Henry, sister Jane, mother Jane, and step father Thomas Snaith in Belgrave Gate in Leicester. (He is a carriage trimmer). In 1871 he is shown as John T Buker, married, living with wife Susan (born Exeter) and daughter Jane in Birmingham, he is a coachmaker's trimmer. In 1881 he is married, aged 46 and living with his wife Susan, daughter Jane, son John F O Butler, and Susan's mother Sarah Hepper, in Exeter - he is a coach trimmer. In 1891 he is married, born 1835 and living with his wife Susan, daughter Jane, son Francis O Butler in Taunton - he is a coach trimmer. In 1901 he is widowed, aged 66, living with his daughter Jane in Exeter - he is a coach trimmer. In 1861 he is not married to Susan - have found her at home with her parents - but can't seem to find him anywhere - all thoughts welcome!! Thanks!!

Bev, You are a star - how did you do it?? Reckon that could well be him - thanks so much!! Maggie (who is now going crazy trying to find his son John Francis O Butler (born Birmingham, 1873) in 1901!! Think I have found his marriage in Wandsworth in 1904, and in 1891 he is a Merchant's Clerk - so who knows what he might be doing in 1901!!).

Oh thank goodness....I was looking for this thread earlier and couldn't find it. I thought i was going mad! Anyway, Mike i wonder if you could help me. I have a Parr family that is missing ... John Parr born c1827 in Notts to John (c1807) and Mary A (1813). John Snr was born in Nottingham and Mary born Leicester. John and Mary went on to have Emma born c1832 in Leicester, Leicestershire. Do you have any idea where i can find out her birth info and also if parents had any other kids around the same time. Both John Parr snr and jnr were Tailors. Thanks , Karen

Hi Elaine I have so many Willliam Wrights in my tree!! but as yet I haven't got a Sarah Kirkman. My Wrights came to Leicester form Norfolk about 1890's so Its probably not the same family. If you ever come across an Alice Mary Wrights marriage after 1901 I'd really appreciate the details please and please let me know anybody you want me to look out for. Regards Tracey

Hi Mike/Bev Haven't asked any info for a while on the HEAWOOD clan so here goes. Could you look up a marriage for Timna Heawood (dob abt 1869). It was in Leciester 1888 but not sure exactly where. Thanks Margaret

Beverly Report 3 Oct 2005 19:50

Hi Margaret youve probably got this Timna Heawood To Edward Fenick Leicester December 1888 Vol 7a Page 449 I think where we will have to leave to Mike Bev

Tracey Report 3 Oct 2005 22:43

Hi Donna Has anybody got back to you? If not, I think you will have to find the right fiche out for whichever church you need and then when you've found the right page go and buy a token to print the copy off, I've never done this myself at Wigston, it always seems a bit long winded for me so I just write everything down. The staff will help you. Good Luck Tracey

Hi Bev, I've lost my Gt Grandfather PHILLIP PYM(M) born KEGWORTH in 1833, I've checked Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire without success.

Greeting's & Welcome Ralph..... I've trawled through all those Leicestershire villages In both the 1841. & 1851. Censuses ..... which are mentioned from that 1861. Census returns. Although I found PYMM / PYM / PIM Families within those villages Philip didn't appear or similar family Christian names I'm sorry to say ... I can only think that like yourself Philip was abroad with his Father 1841 / 1851. Although I can see only the Crimean war 1854 ~ 56. Plus the unrest in France but that was a lot earlier…. ( Napoleonic Wars ) Interesting Burial found ( Thomas’s Mother ? ) :- LOCKINGTON & HEMINGTON PIMM MARGARET 03 JUL 1831 76 ABODE KEGWORTH Pym Burials found for Kegworth :- PYM JOSEPH 19 JAN 1840 INF PYM JOHN 29 OCT 1840 INF PYM WILLIAM 18 APR 1887 35 MIKE.
