Sorry Mate……
Admission & Discharge Books for St. Margaret’s Poor Law Workhouse
DO NOT start until 1860.

I did trawl St. Margaret’s Parish Church Baptism Registers 1838. ~42.
But drew a blank for your Louisa Tomkins Daughter of a Ann. Tomkins.

So that has eliminated St. Margaret’s then.
I’ll checkout other Parishes next time I go to the Record Office …..

Is this their marriage and Terry's birth?

Here's Henry's birth:

Births Jun 1878
Nunn Henry Ernest Basford 7b 173

I can't find Margaret's, but I think this must be her, mistranscribed as Hodgkin, because the only other Margaret Agnes born in Notts about the right time had the surname Chambers, and was born in Southwell. Unfortunately the original image is typewritten.

Births Jun 1877
Hodgkin Margaret Agnes Basford 7b 135

MaryfromItaly

MaryfromItaly Report 6 Mar 2008 14:04

I think I may have found Margaret on the censuses, sometimes mistranscribed as Addison or Haddison; her birthplace is shown as Ilkeston, which is about 10 miles from Basford. She was a schoolteacher.

Does this sound like the right person?

Late night for you then... I was akip!........

Hello Mike safely downloaded and printed. Thank you again....but if you get a couple of minutes, take a look at The 1823 Martha scan....is there not another Cooke? .... Eliza at entry no:1924, I can't make it out completely.

It certainly doesn't show up on the IGI

Best regard, Bob

Greetings again Mike
Many thanks again for your time and effort re Louisa Tomkins. I'm not sure what details baptism records show but it is Ann's parents details I need to clarify.

Suz, do you already have the census details? If not, and you have an Ancestry subscription, I can give you the references. Otherwise I can send you the images.
