Hi Laurie, William Standing, head, mar, 38, bricklayer, Kent Lambhurst Jane Standing, wife, mar, 33, Kent Southborough 58 Rowena Crescent RG12/432, Folio 92, Page 18 Battersea, London I have already found Francis and Thomas Standring for you, when I was looking for Charles Constant. Francis was mistranscribed as Flauding! that information is posted on here somewhere! Thomas appears to be living with Francis and his family. I cannot find anything for Thomas Tusdale, however, there is a Thomas Teasdale the right age born Plumstead - he is single and seems to be living with his brother or other relation. Do you think this could be him? his occupation is "waiter"

Hi Elton, I'm researching all over the country!! but especially the Coman and Wheeler families in Islington and Douge family in Derbyshire - also have Lanes in Liverpool, Tsang in London, Took in Bolton, Green in Nottingham, and many more! Try researching Greens in Nottingham that is such fun!!


Emma Report 28 Sep 2003 13:15

Kim, Is there any chance that this family split up? I think I may have found them but they are living separately. Can you also confirm the husband's name. You've asked for James Dowson but when I checked on the 1881 census it's listed there as John. The record I've found on the 1891 census is for a John Dowson, joiner, born Evenwood.


Laurie Report 28 Sep 2003 12:52

Hi Elton, I can't find Daniel or Martha either. The only thing that comes close although the age is way out is Martha Bowman, head, age 55, born Hertforshire London City, Living Furneux Pelham, Herts. RG12/1099, Folio 42, page 3. Unfortunately, it's one of those schedules which is totally illegible so I cannot check any of the details.


Emma Report 28 Sep 2003 10:09

Hi Christine, No luck yet with Cissy. Do you have a birth place for James or any other family members so I can narrow it down?


May Report 28 Sep 2003 09:48

Hi lucy, Thank you very much for the information. That's another piece of puzzle in the jigsaw. Regards May


Emma Report 28 Sep 2003 09:47

Hi Amanda, No luck with Thomas Phippen I'm afraid. Have you found him on the 1881 census? Do you have his father's name?


Amanda Report 28 Sep 2003 01:44

Hi Lucy, Did you have any luck with my request for a look-up for Thomas PHIPPEN, b1872, Burtle, Somerset. I remember you said you were going to play around with the name for a while. Thanks again. Amanda.


May Report 27 Sep 2003 17:08

Hi Lucy, Thank you very much for looking for me. I did look on the 1901 but no luck. I found them on the 1881 census but think they must have died shortly after that as there is no sign of them. Can't even find their deaths. Where did you find the information about the children please so I can have a look. I am trying all ways to get to his father William Noble-Nesbitt and mother Barbara but everywhere is a deadend. Thank you again Lucy for your help May


Emma Report 27 Sep 2003 16:35

Hi Laurie, I've checked again using the names from the 1881 census and I still can't find anything.
