Jess If Ada Bassendale and Elizabeth Bassendale were?? Sister, then Ada Bottcher would have been the Niece of Ada Bassendale. I too have looked at the Baxendale's but cannot find one that fits in. Victor


Unknown Report 3 Jul 2005 11:00

Jess, Would this one fit?? Ada Baxendale. March 1/4 Bolton Lancs. 1870;;Gro 8c--392, Kay.

Jess, LDS gives quite a few, This is wrong birth County (if a hard fact), but best date for Ada is this one, Household Record 1881 British Census Name Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation Disability William BASSINGDALE Head M Male 44 Withernsea, York, England Miller Journeyman (Corn) Elizabeth BASSINGDALE Wife M Female 37 Scrivelsby, Lincoln, England Dressmaker Ada BASSINGDALE Daur Female 12 Wood Enderby, Lincoln, England Scholar Source Information: Dwelling Horncastle Rd Census Place Coningsby, Lincoln, England Family History Library Film 1341775 Public Records Office Reference RG11 Piece / Folio 3252 / 110 Page Number 15

Jess This looks like the family of Ellen in 1881. Household: Name Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation Disability John BAXENDELL Head M Male 36 Manchester, Lancashire, England Lo Printer (CP) Matilda BAXENDELL Wife M Female 34 Salford, Lancashire, England Wallace BAXENDELL Son U Male 11 Manchester, Lancashire, England Scholar Ellen BAXENDELL Daur U Female 9 Manchester, Lancashire, England Scholar John BAXENDELL Son U Male 7 Manchester, Lancashire, England Scholar William BAXENDELL Son U Male 5 Manchester, Lancashire, England Scholar Alfred BAXENDELL Son U Male 1 Manchester, Lancashire, England Source Information: Dwelling 36 Rhoda St Census Place Manchester, Lancashire, England Family History Library Film 1341956 Public Records Office Reference RG11 Piece / Folio 4007 / 41 Page Number 35 No Ellen so it looks like the birth given in 1891 is correct.

Joyce offered, so i have accepted, she is going to e-mail the marriage cert of Ada Bassindale/samuel mellor and hopefully the birth cert of their first born child. Not that i dont believe what she tells me, but it might help to see the fact 1st hand as it were. jess


moe Report 3 Jul 2005 16:07

Jess, trawled through 1837online. no birth from1869 up to 1873 for ada bassindale. i have a lot of bassindales born around THORNE and DONCASTER the nearest ive got is ALICE jan/feb/march THORNE 9c 628 and ANNIE ELIZABETH Gainsbro' 7a 683 if you need them sometime i have george lillian frank fred clara henry and so on but none of them were born in the liverpool area. this seems to be a manchester area name, i will keep my eye open for them for you GOOD LUCK..... MOE! PS i also have a ANN BASSINDALE BARNSLEY 9c 126jan/feb/march 1871

Changing the subject slightly - It's very strange that the 1893 witness, Mary Bunfield, is a name that only appears to occur in Norfolk/Suffolk on any census or GRO reg. Wots goin' on??? Sarah

Jess - did you get that actual cert for the wedding? If not, it appears in the Lancs BMD site: Lancashire Marriage indexes for the years: 1893 Surname Forename(s) Surname Forename(s) Church / Register Office Registers At Reference BASSINDALE Ada M MELLOR Samuel Walton, St. Mary Liverpool 2012WD/16/395 As it's a church, there may be a records office copy of the registers of which you could get a photo copy (for < £1) instead of paying out for a cert - and you'd get to see their handwriting instead of someone else's.

Jess, Any addresses on the marriage cert from Joyce?? I thought somewhere in the back of my mind that one time I was searching for Ada's dad, John Bassindale, with a particular occupation??? Or is that a figment of my tired brain??? Back from day out with CB radio - exhausted! Sarah

Jess This has been bugging me, the name sounded familiar so I search my records and low and behold I find ref's to Ada Bessingdale. In the email Joyce says Ada's father (John as we now know) was a Licensed Victualler. I will send the email via PM. Victor

Jess, As Jonathan hasn't replied I would guess either 1881 or 1891 due to Alice being born 1874. Could be wrong tho! Kim
