Thanks Meryl Re: Richard Collins The look up is actually for a friend of mine who has just started his family tree. I have looked on the 1881 census for him and his father was called william collins born in Morton in 1881 Wiliiam lived in Aston William would be about 5 years old on the 1851 census. Regards Roseanne


Sue Report 30 Aug 2003 16:55

Hi Meryl Please could you look for William SPEAR age 36 born Crediton, his wife Sarah age 29 born Morchard Bishop. They should be living in Copplestone/Colebrook, Devon with (I hope) their children including Emma and Mary Jane. Thank you very much Sue at Langley Vale

Hi Gerry I'm afraid your Grandad wont be on the 1851 census as he wouldn't have been born until 1863 if he was 38 in 1901, have you tried the 1881 census? web address on the Links on left hand panel. Sorry I couldnt help, Good Luck Meryl


Roseanne Report 30 Aug 2003 10:46

I am trying to trace my Grandfathers birth details.The 1901 census gives his birth place as Morton Morell and he was 38 at that census.His name was Richard Collins, regards Gerry Collins


Debbie Report 29 Aug 2003 08:51

Hello Meryl, Please could you see if their is a listing for Thomas Andrews c1838 and Sarah Jane Sherriff c1842 (poss 1 r) both born Plymouth. Many Thanks for the help. Debbie


Peter Report 29 Aug 2003 08:16

Dear Meryl - that's very kind of you. Can I trouble you for a look up in the Devon census for anybody with the surname Ezechiel ?(this spelling) There won't be many (if any!). My big hope is for James Ezechiel, my great grandad but any Ezechiels would be exciting! Best wishes Peter

Patricia There are several Charles Bakers but no Harry. Do you have a year or occupation for Charles? If not I will put them all on but it will have to be next week I'm afraid. Meryl


Roseanne Report 23 Aug 2003 17:20

Hi I am searching for the name Skeer from warwick Thomas Skeer was born around 1846 and he had a number of brothers and sister Thomas was the son of Thomas and Anne Skeer. Any info would be much appreciated because there are not many skeer's and i should be able to link them up Roseanne


Nina Report 23 Aug 2003 12:36

Hello Meryl I would be grateful if you could look for the surname Bradford in 1851 Warwicks census. They were blacksmiths and seem to originate from Newton Regis, later in Warton and Atherstone.Thanks Nina Terry
