Hi Linda ; There are no Blundel births in Hampshire, with father Joseph. Most births are in the Southampton /Hursley area (happens to be near where I am from, bought back some memories) about 8 marriages but not the names you wanted. If you want these others anyway let me know.

Theresa, I am not having much luck tracing Joseph FOWLER born between 1850 and 1857 Bristol GLOS. I have a birth certificate for 1853 but I'm pretty sure its another family who were living in the same area (same father's name of Joseph). My Joseph married Elizabeth Force in 1873 so have his father as Joseph. There is a birth on 1837online for 1850 but not sure whether to chance ordering having already wasted £7. Do you have anything for those years? Would appreciate any info. Marion

hi Teresa many thanks for that info I didnt know about Arthur he must have died before 1901 also very useful to know the name of the church. I have always understood that Nanson was an added family name and not part of the surname but it seems that I should be looking for that in front of Thompson thanks again Janis

Hi teresa Can you spare a moment (or several) to see whether my mother's siblings appear on VRI. She was Ellen Walton, born March qtr 1901, to parents Edward Walton and Ellen, nee Wolstenholme, in Blackburn, Lancs. I believe their names were Clifford, Alice and James. Any help would be most gratefully received. Rosemary

Hi Teresa Would you be kind enough to see if you can find the birth of my husband's mother. I have her birth certificate and the father is unknown, but I am hoping that the parish records may give a little more information as to the whereabouts of her mother. Registered Winifred Caron:born in Islington. Middlesex 14.02.1911 and she was baptised in March 1911, at St Pauls in Harringay. Middlesex She was born 'out of wedlock' and I am fairly sure that the father was Frederick James Edridge and that he and his wife adopted her. Thanks in advance Tricia
