Jenny not being critical, but with names as common as James Elizabeth and Taylor, please can you confirm birth places and where in the New forest they may have been.

Jenny - do you want them born there, or 'being' there. is it Northampton itself or one of the villages? ..not that there are many to chose from! ~Jess~


Sprack Report 11 Apr 2005 07:10

hi again jess can you look on the 1871 for james taylor about 33 born eling and wife elizabeth about 28 born eling, in 1881 they are living in the new forest but I have an idea that they married and had their second son frederick in shrewsbury. and can you find thomas grover c40 and wife louisa c44 in farnham on the 1901 for me?. thanks for your time. jenny

Thank you Jess, that's great. Wish I'd asked before now. Thought I needed a stronger pair of glasses there for a minute, I've only wasted a fiver on 1837 looking for Weaver LOL. Thanks again, much appreciated. Jan

jan Neaves, deff (funny N though!)


Jan Report 10 Apr 2005 21:47

Jess would you mind checking the 1901 for me please if you have the time, I'd like another opinion. RG13 Pc 565 Fo. 53 Pg 30 William Newlyn age 47 Labourer Coal Wharf Jane Newlyn age 50 (wife) Living at Cock Yard, Woolwich. There is an adopted child transcribed as John Weaver age 1 yr but I think it says NEAVE(S). I've looked at the N in Newlyn and the first letter of the child's name, to me, appears also to be 'N' and not W. What do you think please. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Jan

Jenny, sorry image definately says Jesse, not jane


Sprack Report 10 Apr 2005 18:26

hi jess thanks very much for the look-ups, I wasn't sure if the boys were theirs because on the 1881 jesse and emma had 3 girls lilly 3 born reading clara 2 born reading and elizabeth 3 months born whitley wood so I thought the three on the 1901 could be theirs, are you sure the head is jane and not jesse?, I know lilly's father was jesse because I have her marriage cert. jenny
