Hi Victoria
Just wondering if you could help me please.
Im looking for my Grandmothers ancestors :

My mum Marjorie Rose Marsden nee Wilkins b 23 June 1950
Her mum Marjorie Rose Abraham b 1923 Eccles Salford Married Norman Arthur Wilkins
Her mum Rose Clayton b 1904 married John Abraham
I cant find Rose Claytons mother but i do know that she died in childbirth when having twins along with the second twin & think the surviving twin was Annie & some of her siblings were Amelia, Arthur & Rose.

Any info of any generations mentioned would be very much appreciated......
Many thanks

Hi Susan,

Don’t worry, I’ll cross reference the John Pickersgill’s born around 1918 with marriages of William Pickersgill to see if I can find a marriage with the same mother’s maiden name.

I’ll have a look this evening for you.

Hello Victoria!

I am interested in the British Army WW1 Pensions.

Could you please tell me if there is any information on Albert George Fuller born c. 1897 in Felsted, Essex?

He was in WW1 and was gassed, sadly he died in 1926. He was my maternal grandfather.

He appears on the 1901 Census age 4.

I am also looking for his marriage to Annie Bentley in about 1920 in the Dunmow or Thaxted area of Essex.

With very best wishes

Norman

Hi Joanne,

Here's what I could find. Is this Rose born 1904?

Rose Clayton 1904 Oct-Nov-Dec Chorlton Lancashire

There is also this birth which is in the same place as the below marriage:

Rose Clayton 1907 Oct-Nov-Dec Barton Upon Irwell (1850-1934) Lancashire


Her marriage:

Rose Clayton 1925 Oct-Nov-Dec Abraham Barton Upon Irwell (1850-1934) Lancashire

Her sister?

Amelia Clayton 1906 Jan-Feb-Mar Barton Upon Irwell (1850-1934) Lancashire

Rose's child?

Abraham Frederick T Clayton Barton I. 8c 882

I would suggest either getting her marriage cert which should state her Father's name, or her birth cert if you are sure it is her to see what both parents are called.

Sorry I couldn't help further,

Vicky

Hi Vicky, my GGF Thomas Prest married Elizabeth Thompson in Feb 1900 in Middlesbrough.

Elizabeth had a child in 3rd qtr 1898 in Stockton Durham named

Ethel Gertrude Roberts Thompson

I cannot find any of them on the 1901 census.

I did find a Elizabeth Thompson with a Ethel Thompson, but Elizabeth was 10 yrs older than the one I want, plus she should have been using her married name, shouldnt she ???.

Any help would be much appreciated

Sandra Report 5 Feb 2008 22:06

Hi Vicky, thanks for your reply, ages on marriage cert are 24yrs for Thomas and 22 yrs for Elizabeth.

I think his birth would be Stockton or Durham, I have never been able to pin point it, his father is William Prest labourer and the witness's on Thomas's marriage cert are Jane prest and William Ayre, I think she is his sister, she marries William Ayre in june of 1900, I found them on the census, somebody got in touch and told me Jane married 6 times, but they havn't been back in touch.

Elizabeth Thompson's father was John Thompson, hope some of this is a help.

Thanks again Vicky
