Hi Susan, Would it be possible for you to look-up the following family for me please? They are William Weston & Emma Smith who married 18/11/1834 at WEM, Shropshire. Their children were baptised at Lee Brockhurst, Shropshire, and were: William Weston bap. 8/7/1837 Thomas Weston bap. 5/1/1840 John Weston bap. 2/7/1843 Anne Weston bap. 1/11/1846 George Weston bap. 22/9/1850 This is the only info I have about my gggrandparents so any scrap of new info will be very, very welcome indeed. It is a great thing you are doing, many thanks, Jimmy

Hi again Susan, Please could you see if you can locate the marriage of my gg grandparents, as i can't find anything recorded until 2 years after the birth of my g-gran! (Which i am not discounting yet!) They are Henrietta Louisa Sheppard born 19/9/1887 in Figheldean, Wiltshire and Henry George Wade born circa 1879/80 somewhere else! He was in the Army so I suspect he was stationed in the Salisbury Plain area which is where he may mave met her, and so they may have married in Wiltshire. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks Heidi

Hello Carolyn Sorry I have been unable to find Isabella or Betsy on 1881 - very strange indeed - have you tried under Betsy's middle name incase she is living with her parents, but I do find it odd that the father is with one of the children - it could be the census registar made a mistake and didnt write them down. Kind regards sue

Hello Susan, Thanks for the offer. I'd really appreciate any help on this one, having difficulty finding on cenus or bmd. Edward Clemson born 1832 in Wolverhampton - Miner Mary Clemson Wife born 1831 Wolverhampton Mary Clemson daughter 1875 Wolverhampton I've found them in 1901 with Mary's (junior) husband John Jackman. But I can't find them any earlier. This is definately the right family in 1901. in 1901 their address was 63 Embden Street, South Manchester (RG13 3698 153) I ordered what I thought was the daughter Mary's birth certificate, but it states Edward Clemson as father but mother is Jane Clemson (formerly Sparrow). I have found a marriage record which looks like a match for Edward Clemson & a Jane Sparrow dated 1855 which could be likely, hence the name of birth cert. But surely if he remarried wouldn't the new Mary Clemson be written as 'step mother? Thanks in advance, Regards Sandra

Hello Sandra Here are the census for Edward and Jane 1861-1891. I cant find a death for Jane or another marriage for Edward. It could be that Mary's husband got his wife's mother's name wrong, that unfortunately is one thing we will never know. Anyway I hope this helps Regards Sue 1861 Census RG9/1988 Folio 26 Page 9 47 Pearson Street, Wolverhampton, Staffordshire Edward Clemson, Head, Married, 27, Coal Miner, b.
