Searching any Springett's in Kent/Gateshead areas

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Looking for any living descendants of the Springett family in the Kent and Gateshead area. These descendants would be of the marriage of Albert Springett and Edith Gertrude Maud Bryant married at St Johns Chatham in Kent in October 1898. I know the family is vast and at least one of the children of the above marriage moved to Gateshead in the early 1900's. I have posted other messages in the Durham area also. If any further information is required please contact me. I am of the Bryant line.

Kind regards

Start by looking in 'search trees'

You'll need first names and birth years

Thank you Reggie, am just desperate to try and locate any living relatives of this family. I did have some pay as you go credits but they have run out and cannot renew for now. Have tried as much as I can to search but have hit a brick wall so to speak. All help is very much appreciated.

Kind regards

You don't need to pay for bmd info up to around 1950

It's all on freebmd - check it out

Edith's surviving son married in 1949

His wife appears in at least eight GR trees!

Kathryn

Kathryn Report 6 Jun 2012 11:52

Hello again Reggie, am getting a bit confused now, doesn't take much!! Is the Edith you are talking about in your last post at 11.21 Edith Phoebe and if so are you allowed to say on here who the surviving son is? Also who is Ada G M Bennett?

Kind regards

If you do the searches I advised on freebmd - all will become clear

Start with Springett/Bryant.

Then look for Edith's other son - and look for his marriage

Then find his wife's name on GR by using 'search trees'

I don't want to deprive you of the pleasure of finding info yourself - it wouldn't seem fair

Just look for Bauckham/Springett births

Of course - every scrap of info I've given has to be verified - I can't guarantee that any of it is 100% accurate

Kathryn

Kathryn Report 6 Jun 2012 13:03

Hi again Reggie, once again many thanks for all your help. I have just found an Edmund Bauckham who married a Phyllis Stockwell in 1949. Edmund's mother was a Springett so think I'm on the right track. Have also just found two people on GR with Edmund in their tree and have just finished messaging them both. Fingers crossed and everything else. I couldn't have done this without your help. It is very much appreciated. Can you just tell me please Reggie who the Ada G M Bennett was please that you mentioned earlier as I can't see any reference to an Ada? Will leave you in peace now. I'm on annual leave this week hence my being back and forth to the computer and having time to post messages. If I get anywhere with my quest in the near future, I wonder, as you have been so helpful, would you mind if I let you know?

Kind regards

Kathryn

Had you done so, you would have found.................
