Sally Thank-you so much for that I am just going through my family names and dates because some of the names ring a bell. Would you mind looking up for a Sampson Williams, he used so many variations of his name. As well as Elizabeth Ashmore, father Thomas, mother Kezia Bales. You are an angel Thanks Trudi

Sorry Sally, I have only just seen your post with lookups of Littlejohns, I think the ones living on Southside street, might be connected as I have ancestors living there in one of the censuses.

Thanks Sally Going back to Anning could you please look for a Benjamin Anning and Elizabeth Anning. In your previous message you mentioned their names. Benjamin married in 1803 to a Elizabeth Walker and had a daughter Elizabeth born circa 1908 in Devonport. Many thanks for doing these lookups Trudi

Hello Sally Would it be possible to look for Elizabeth Smale born 1839/40 her fathers name is Robert. 1881 census shows born Exbourne Devon, would love to find others in family. Many thanks Frances


Sally Report 31 Oct 2004 07:31

fances No elizabeth 1839/40 1837 yes 1842 yes but both servants it does not come up with exbourne devon so not sure where that is near. came up with 2 Roberts as follows Robert smale 44 carpenter mary ann 33 francis james 5 ellen 1 living Quoditch Smales House ashwater holsworthy Robert Smale 72 ag lab samuel son 28 living cheriton bishop. do hope this helps, I am here if you need me.


ForeverMystified Report 31 Oct 2004 15:06

Hi Sally Thank you for look up re Elizabeth Smale, the information I got for place of birth was on the 1881 census, she was living in Ashton-u-Lyne Lancashire then. I think perhaps a northerner wouldn't quite understand a Devon accent as I could not find Exbourne on map, no disrepect to either Northerners or Devonians. Thank you for trying Frances


Sally Report 31 Oct 2004 15:59

Frances I will look at 1881 see if I can find any more hints for me to go on. Sally.
