Hi Sally, You did a look up for this name quite a while ago now for me but had no luck in finding them.But could you please have a look at 18 Navy Row Stoke Damerel to see if a John,Mary and Harry Roskruge are there?This was their adress in 1848 when Harry was born.The name is probably miselt,John I think was born in Maker Cornwall. Thanks for looking Sandra

James there are a few Henry Ley but, not 1827. ----------- Sandra, The only people with the surname Roskruge were, Samuel 1815 inland rev officer manaccan cornwall Mary 1817 " " Elizabeth 1843 emily 1847 Mary 1849 Alphington living tiverton. _________

Hi Sally, Thanks for looking,this family are being very elusive the earliest I have them in 1871 by which time John had died. Thanks again and hope you have a happy new year Sandra


Sandra Report 11 Jan 2005 08:55

Hi Sally, Sorry to bother you again but could you possibly look up Charles Terdre in 1851 Plymouth census?He was in Charles Plymouth in the 1871 census I am hoping his daughter is with him Mary as she married my elusive Roskruge.Charles occupation was I think ropemaker and he was born in Plymouth. Thanks ever so much Sandra

Hello Sally Just got a new birth cert from GRO - pretty much per expected date (2nd class post on 12th, arrives 14th - seems ok to me!). John CHAPMAN b 26.5.1838 Sheepwash parents: John CHAPMAN (maltster) & Mary nee BALSDON of Sheepwash (doesn't say where/when the parents were born of course!) If you can find them for me - presumably in Sheepwash, or possibly Black Torrington or thereabouts, I should be delighted. thanks Christine

I'd be interested in anything about the following families in Black Torrington & Sheepwash: CHAPMAN, John (b May 1838, Sheepwash), John (John's father, a Maltster) BALSDON, Mary (wife & mother to the two Johns above) HALL, Ann (b Feb 1845 Black T, wife of John Chapman junr), William (her father, a servant) HORN, Mary Ann (Ann Hall's mother, b 1814-5 Black T) I haven't managed to track them at all before 1871, except for BMD certs. John and Ann CHAPMAN and her mother Mary Ann HALL (as they were by then) I do have from 1871 onward. thanks Christine

Hello Sally Many thanks for all the look-ups. Have copied & pasted them into Word, where I can play around with them. Just at first glance, Mary Ann Hall, the draper/grocer looks a pretty definite hit. Thank you very much, indeed. best wishes Christine


Carole Report 17 Jan 2005 12:39

Hi Sally, Could you see if you can find Emma Gill, aged about 8. She was born in Tiverton and her father's name was Philip. If you can track down that family, I would be extremely grateful! Thanks, Carole

Hi again Sally, You don't know how much that look up helped me! Thanks again. Trouble is, it's got me so excited I now need to find brother John Lavers, born 1827 and parents John and Mary/Marianne. So if you would, could, I'd be forever grateful. Davina
