Hi all,

I have come to a stand still with my family tree for now. I have ancestry sub so can do the following:

Census lookups:

England 1841- 1901
Wales 1841 - 1901
Scotland 1841 - 1901

England and Wales BMD index 1837 - 1983 (they are only computerised up to about 1920, so anything after that I can't do unless you have an approx date)

England and Wales Full BMD index 1984 - 2005

British Army World War 1 Pensions

Please give as much info as possible and I will do my best to help. I do work full time, but I will answer as quickly as I can.

Thanks

Vicky

This is the only possibility I could find. Did Emma's first husband die? If he didn't maybe George and Emma never married or their names were spelt so incorrectly they are impossible to find!

I'm sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

Would you mind doing a look-up in the 1861 Census for my great-great grandfather John Booth and his family? Probably Preston, Lancashire. John would have been 12, I think (b. 1848/9). He has a sister margaret who should be 4 (b. 1856/7). His parents were Richard and Elizabeth Booth (though there is a possiblity Richard dies before 1861).

I'm just going out now, I'm log back in later. Thanks!!

Hullo Vicky. Very kind of you to make this offer. Thank you.
I have a David Lee born 1869, Calverton Notts. to Elizabeth Lee.
Question: Did he have a twin brother called Bartholomew Lee also born 1869.
Margaret.

faerykingdom Report 28 Jan 2008 10:42

Hi Margaret,

It does appear that David and Bartholomew were born in the same year, same place but registered in different months. They could be brother’s, David being conceived as soon as Bartholomew was born. Here are the references:

Bartholomew Lee 1869 Apr-May-Jun Basford Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire

David Lee 1869 Oct-Nov-Dec Basford Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire

Also, I am researching my friend’s family tree and he is also related to the Lee family from Calverton. Do you know of a Sarah Lee, daughter of Luke Lee?

Hope this helps,

Vicky

Hi I have a mind block and have tried for ages to locate Stephen Beresford in 1841 census. He was around Durham area 1901-1851. With various spellings such as Beriesford , Bursford, Berresford, Barrasford etc! He was born abt 1822 Byker Hill Newcastle(Northumberland). Any help would be fantastic thanks Judith

Re: John Booth born 1848/9, thanks Victoria for your help.

None of the John Booths you listed seem to fit. I think I need to send off for his marriage cert so I can confirm for myself that he was indeed the son of Richard and Elizabeth. He definitely had a younger sister called Margaret who was acting as a housekeeper for him in 1881after his first wife had died. John is my mother's father's mother's father so I have only begun recently to nail some facts on this side of the 'tree'.

I notice in the GR index of the 1861 Census there is a John Booth age 12 and a Margaret Booth aged 5, both in Preston. Maybe they are my Booths. I guess maybe you checked these first and they weren't in the same household. I'll buy some credits and check when I have a list of things to look up.

Hi Vicky,

Thanks for the offer.
Are you able to look up
Thomas Lister b c1823 Lancashire

Census 1851, but can you look 1841 and 1861/1871 if possible.

I think he was married to Elizabeth in 1851 census and married to Ruth in 1871 census.
and had a son William b1862 which is my link.

Thanks Allison
