Deb Report 22 May 2005 22:39

Yep Jess Found LIZZIE'S sister was born in DUBLIN in IRELAND so I thought it might just be a long shot as the family (ROSE - 1897 , FLORENCE - 1894 , ALICE - 1892 , LIZZIE - 1878 , LUCY - 1872 and JANE - 1874) cannot be picked up in the 1881 census (apart from those not born at the time ) unless you see if LUCY OR JANE can be found as opposed to LIZZIE , that might work Parents = JOSEPH 1848 ELIZABETH 1849 Debs


Barbara Report 23 May 2005 11:58

Hello Jess, many thanks for looking for Henry Church. Maybe he emigrated, served in the army, was away at sea fishing, or even died or maybe the name has been mistranscribed. One day maybe, I will find out! David Church is a cousin of my Grandfather, all the Middleton Church's are related, and there were quite a few of them! Once again, thank you. Kind regards Barbara

Hi Jess its me again Is it possible to see if you can find birth and marriage dates plus their families if possible (doesnt matter so much though it would be great) for the following 2 people. William Rudland born between 1865 and 1888 in Newcastle i presume thats where his son was born and died we think. He married Mary Straughan born also between 1865 and 1888 8it is said she had irish connections but im not sure if she was born in Ireland. The only child i know of so far is William Straughan Rudland born 1905 in newcastle upon tyne. He continued to live there as well as he was honoured with a Freedom Of Newcastle (havent quite found out exactly what this is yet). My grandmother remembers he had 3 sisters Sarah Elizabeth and Mary but its not 100%. This is all the info i have on this family so far. Hope you can find something thanks so much you're a great help Claire x

blimey!! William Rudland born between 1865 and 1888 in Newcastle <-- Where does that come from?!! from where are you drawing those boundaries? How do you know he married Mary Straughan?When?Where? jess


**Claire* Report 23 May 2005 12:33

Well William Rudland was my grandmothers grandfather and Mary was her grandmother. My grandmothers father also William was born in Newcastle upon Tyne which is why im guessing his father was as well obviously this could be a wrong guess.

Claire you seem in a total tangle! 1.You-> 2.your parents-> 3.Grandparents-> 4 great grandparents->= Possibly a William (is that what you are saying?) 5.GG Grandparents = William Rudland + Mary Straughan(Yes?)

Wonder where he was.....!!


**Claire* Report 23 May 2005 13:10

lol it is a bit silly isnt it how are we supposed to see what kind of relative - strange. This could be the 2 sisters my grandmother mentioned though Sarah and Mary its possible. The surname is spelt slightly different but i have been in contact with someone recently (a long distance cousin) from the other side of the family and the surname changes 3 times

Deborah Report 23 May 2005 13:31

Hi Jess Thank you for the Napier information. James was in the Royal Artillery so was perhaps at the barracks or away somewhere. The 1881 census on LDS site shows them at the same address thanks for finding that they were next door.I will have to look up Jackson Street maybe it was Army houses Thanks Deborah


**Claire* Report 23 May 2005 18:25

Thanks for looking Jess its all a bit confusing with Mary isnt it ill keep looking and see what i come up with and if it matches anything you have found.


**Claire* Report 23 May 2005 19:22

Jess you are going to hate me now. Im so sorry, A few weeks ago (dont think it was longer ago than that) you found a load of info for me and i cannot find it anywhere just wondered if it would be possible if you could look it up for me one more time im so sorry If you can it will be great you found the marriage between Thomas Simmons and Ann Medhurst they were both born around the 1820s im pretty sure Thomas was born 1821 and Ann 1824 in Kent Thomas Penshurst and Ann im not sure possibly Kemsing. Is there any chance you can find it again i really am so sorry Jess Thanks


Ann Report 23 May 2005 19:34

Hi Jess Could you please look up 1901 census..LEEDS, Yorkshire for a James Woodriff................born 1889. The address+ occupants would be VERY useful, if that is possible. Many thanks Ann
