I think possibly born around 1880 he married Mary Ann Collins and had five children, my grandfather being the youngest. My Greatgrandfather Charles Ellis (from Bethnal Green, East London). Children, Charles, Jim, John, Frank, Tom (my grandfather) and Polly. Please help!

If the offer is still open Vivien....William Whybrew married Ellen McCormack, was a policeman and lived at 10 Horseferry Road in London in1881. Then he disappeared in 1901 with mosts of the family. He was born c1849 in Essex possibly and Ellen c1850 in Chelsea. Anything at all would be appreciated. Roger.

Sorry Vivienne....Roger


Alison Report 31 Oct 2003 20:39

I'm not sure if you can do just name searches. If so then please can you look to see if there are any Chipperton family members. I am particularly interested in the London area but if there are any in the rest of the country and you can search easily i would appreciate it - it is a very unusual surname and there are probably not many. Thanks for any help that you can give me Alison


Lesley Report 31 Oct 2003 20:52

YES PLEASE!!!!! I've hit a brickwall with my g-grandfather. He is listed as Edwin Frederick Shortman on his son's birth certificate in 1903, but seems to have been known generally as Frederick. His age on the 1901 census is given as '23' born in Bath, Gloucestershire; but his marriage certificate and death certificates all give conflicting ages. He would have been born between 1875 and 1879 depending upon which source you believe. His marriage certificate states his father's name as Frederick, but this may also have been a name he was known as rather than his given first name. His father's occupation is given as gamekeeper. I have been unable to find him in the GRO indexes from 1871 till 1882, or find the family in the 1881 census index, or his father on the 1901 index. Any help would be greatfully received and I would be eternally in your debt. Thanking you in anticipation Lesley, Hull

Hi Viv, If your very kind offer is still open, please could you look up Alfred and Ellen Pegg, probably at 50, Rivett Street, Derby? They would have had a son about 4 called George and possibly a daughter too. Many thanks.


Helen Report 6 Nov 2003 11:31

I would be grateful if you could search for Edward Terry (aged 39 in 1891 - Labourer), wife Sarah Ann (aged 36), their son Edward Robert (aged 12) and daughter Louisa (aged 6) living in Poplar, East London. In 1881 their address was 55 Tetley Street, London. I need to see whether they had any other children and whether Sarah Ann was still alive. Thank you very much for your kind assistance. Helen


Helen Report 6 Nov 2003 13:06

Just remembered another one you might be help me with. I'd be grateful if you could find Henry Francis Middleton (aged around 21 in 1891). He was born around 1870 in Harrow (Hendon), Middlesex. Parents George (a fly-driver) and Jane. Henry was married in York in 1896 when he was living in Clifton Croft (Clifton Green) York, so he may have been there in 1891. At the time of his marriage he was a groom, presumably working for the owners of the house. I would be interested to see who was living in Clifton Croft at the time even if Henry wasn't there. His wife (Laura Bradley) was living at Clifton Green at the time of her marriage so any record of her in 1891 would also be nice (her father was called William Bilbrough Bradley and was an hotel manager). I have only been able to find Henry on the 1901 census when he and Laura had moved down to Enfield but have been unable to find any sign of them on the 1881 census so don't know when or why Henry went to York. 09/11/03 - Have found out that Henry was still in Harrow in 1881 but his father George seems to have died prior to the '81 census. Many thanks. Helen

Hi Viv, could you possibly look for Hannah Derbyshire, born approximately 1880 in either Cheshire or Staffordshire, parents were John and Mary, but I think they have been found and she wasn't with them (bit vague as this is for my mother-in-law). In 1881 she was aged 5 months and living with her parents in Manchester. Mothers maiden name was STONIER, so may be living with them. Thanks and Best Wishes, Carol.
