Teresa, could you do a lookup for a William Hart b.1863 in Leeds, Yorkshire. His father was called James Hart. I would love to find out the names of William`s mother and any siblings that he may of had. Thanks. Martin. p.s. If you could tell me any details about James that would be great too.

Hi Theresa, If you get a spare moment (or 3). Am looking for SPRINGFORD children. Parents are Alfred Springford and Fanny Maria (maiden name Coleman). There was an Albert Edward Coleman registered in SEP1895 Highworth District, (not really sure if Alfred is father, Albert Edward was illegitimate and they married in 1898), and I know of Beatrice Annie Springford 1899 Highworth and Alfred Mark George Springford registered in 1901 Highworth. Would be grateful to know of any other siblings as I believe there should be at least 2 more. Think they were all born in Swindon or Stratton St Margarets which comes under registration district of Highworth WILTSHIRE. Thank you for your time, very much appreciated!! Sarah
