Paul just come across one of your old posts 2011, which mentions different parents for Matilda, have you bought her birth cert?

Parents as per the 1901 were born in Durham (Henry) and Derbyshire ( Annie)...not Ireland.

have you any more details that might help with a search?

can you get me or to lead me to that last census.my mam was told by her aunt mithilda/merilda went to ireland and she looked like another family member.iv found john gilling only on 1911 census andrew gilling was my grandad

Penny Report 22 Aug 2012 11:37

Paul what ever you have been told, what ever the census says, her name was registered as MATILDA.
its pointless looking at other spellings in records.

Rambling Rose Report 22 Aug 2012 12:16

Paul, I have looked at the 1911 Irish census which you can find free at

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/

Searching for Gilling does not find Matilda,though there is one Walter Gilling in Co Down who was not there in 1901. It is possible that Matilda did go to Ireland and married there before the 1911 census so you would have to look for a marriage for her first..

Paul you have her as Ann Brooks on your tree on Ancestry, you must buy Matilda's birth cert from the GRO to confirm her parents names,
when you are certain of that then this is likely to be the marriage, buying the certificate for it will give you Henry and Ann's father's names and occupations...which will help you pinpoint Henry's on census before his marriage.

Yea true coz I can't find henry gilling on earlier cencusis wen he lived with his parents.someone found possible marriage for matilda in belfast earlier in post if it told mothers maiden name I'd know it was her

Rambling Rose

Rambling Rose Report 22 Aug 2012 13:15

Paul the marriage I found for Matilda does not give any more detail than posted unfortunately, you would need to get the certificate to see who she married , father's name will be on it , but not mother's maiden name.
