Paula, Thank you so much. I do recognise some of these names as being related to me. Can you contact through e-mail as I would be very interested in anything you can let me have? Mike Will get back with some names and dates when I can. Sandra

Hello Leicester People - I am stuck for the birth of Thomas Maddock around 1814 in Whitwick. He had a brother Joseph born in Whitwick but christened in Repton Derbys. I have the christening dates of all his brothers and sisters (all the rest of them but one in Repton) but the one I want? Oh, lordy, no!!! He is the only one missing. If anyone has access to the Whitwick registers for this time, perhaps they could help. I also do not have the marriage of his parents William and Ann, which might have been in Whitwick and would have been around 1813. Thanks in advance for any help that anyone can give me.

Paula, I did get a message from you. Thank you. All the info is for my family. Have replied requesting any other info you have. Many thanks. Mike I'm trying to find the family of JOHN MYRING born about 1841. Also trying to find my gt-gt-grandma AMELIA HART The 1881 census puts her as being born about 1854, but her 1871 marriage certificate gives her age as 24, making it 1845. Her address was given as Oxford Street, Leicester, but I can't find her on the 1871 census on the Ancestry website. Her fathers name was WILLIAM HART. Would be grateful for any help or advice on this one Sandra

Sandra Report 21 Feb 2005 16:05

Mike, Thank you so much. I've been tearing my hair out over Amelia Hart! I've just checked her marriage certificate and her father's occupation is down as a General Labourer. Also just looked on 1871 and there is an Elizabeth Hart,aged 23, lodging at an address in St Marys. It looks like New Bridge Street but I can't read it properly. I've been basing my findings on 1881 when she was married to my gt-gt-grandad, Charles Winterton. I will have to try and find a birth certificate now and check it out, but it looks as if you may have cracked it for me. Also the Myring info looks as if it is the family i'm looking for. Once again many, many thanks Sandra

Angela I would have popped in the local library(I live in Coalville) and looked it up for you at the end of the week - but it's closed for refurbishing!


sarahjw03 Report 21 Feb 2005 20:02

Hi Mike! I was wondering if you could take a peep at your marriage records for me? I am looking for the maiden name of Mary A Langham, married to William, I would think just before 1880 when their 1st child was born. From Hinckley (both of them). Its an indirect line, and I cant see anything on ancestry/free bmd, and didn't want to trawl 1837 unless really necessary!! If nothing, I will order a birth cert for one of the children. Ta Star! Sarah :-))

Thanks Mike, You've been a great help. Much appreciated Sandra

And just to try and be helpful to anyone with family from the Hinckley area, this site is fantastic, it has info on just about every street and building in Hinckley (just click the first letter of the street/building name on the a-z bit), also maps etc. http://www(.)hinckley(.)netfirms(.)com/index(.)htm Remove the brackets, Sarah

Sheila Report 23 Feb 2005 16:20

Looking for Sarah Ann Goadby (b1868) and her brothers William (b1871) and Joseph (b1873) I have Sarah Ann on the 1871 census with her parents Joseph and Ann (Bodycote) in Willow(?) Street and then on the 1881 Census lodging with relatives in Denmark Street. I have William and Joseph on the 1901 but am missing all three children for 1881 and 1891 and Sarah Ann on the 1901 under her married name of Moyer. I know that their father died in 1877 and their mother married twice more, including a marriage to a Mr Riley. Does this mean anything to anyone? Anyone got any ideas? Sheila

CERTIFICATES HAVE ARRIVED Hi all Need to do some work now, I have never looked at Parish records or old newspapers. My family are mainly in the St Margarets Parish so what do I do about looking them up and where do I go?. Have a death cert for 1897 which shows it was a coroner's inquest and assume this would be in an old newspaper, where in Leicester do I go for that? Thank you Elaine
