Mike, Many thanks for taking time out to look, The John holmes from newbold, has the wrong father, but is the only one I could find as well. Fanny, dont know if Mary Ann is her mother, but know her father is John Robinson, The henry robinson from whitwick Had a daughter called Fanny, but isnt 'My Fanny'(That one married a Wardle) Not a Holmes. And Yes you're quite correct the family DID move to Annesley, I do have details from '71-1901 census for these. Do you have any other Ideas as to how I can trace John And Fanny???? I just seem to be going around in circles, and getting VERY dispondant indeed, Have death certs, and Marriage cert, even first borns birth cert, but still dont know where to go from here with this brick wall. any Ideas gratefully recieved many thanks Julie

Mike Hello again - have put the transcribing on hold for a day - need to sort out some TOMKINS problems. I have a Joseph b1837, James b1839, Sarah Ann b1842 and Matilda b1845 all born to Thomas and Ann, my problem is, the only marriage details I can find for them was in 1851, is it possible that Thomas was previously married to a different Ann?. the 1851 marriage was to Ann RENNIE. Regards Jon ex Leicester

Hi Mike Sorry to be a pain, if you cannot find the marriage, would you be able to find a birth/chritening for Ann eld. Am trying to tie her in with the Eld's who were with her and all the siblings someone kindly let me know about, I just cannot find her. She is as elusive as the Hursts she gives birth to later!!! I am hoping she is the daughter of Joseph and Ann Eld. Many thanks Elaine

Ey up Mike I can't stay away. Have tackled my Goadbys again today. Some time ago you were able to give me the following marriage and death entries: St. Margaret's Church Leicester. Entry No.122, DEC 22, 1867, after Banns JOSEPH GOADBY, 22, bach. RIVETER, of PINGLE St, s. of JOSEPH GOADBY, FWK ANN BODYCOTE, 19, sp. of WILLOW St, d. of CHARLES BODYCOTE, FWK Wits: THOMAS GOADBY, SARAH GOADBY. and Welford Road Cemetery :- Names. / Dates. / Age. / Last known address./ Parish Area. C = Consecrated Ground. N = Section. 175. = Plot No. C = Common Land. 19001. = Burial No. GOADBY JOSEPH 14 SEP 1877 32 PALMERSTON STREET SAINT MARGARET PARISH C N 175 C 19001 I have made considerable progress now and know that Ann Goadby had two further relationships after Joseph's death, to a Mr Smith, by whom she had a son Arthur born about 1882 and to a Mr Riley, by whom she had a daugher Annie born about 1886. In the 1891 and 1901 censuses she described herself as married and gives the names Smith and Riley respectively, but there is no sign of the husbands. I've looked at the 1837 site without any great success. Do you by any chance have marriage entries? In summary she was Goadby in 1871, Smith in 1891 and Riley in 1901. Can't find her at all under any name on the 1881. Cheers Mike Sheila
