I am hoping someone can help me find any living family members of WILLIAM GEORGE HENRY SELBY born in loughborough leicestershire in 1882.His parents were THOMAS SELBY born the 3 nov, 1860 loughborough leicestershire and CHARLOTTE SARAH SELBY (nee HULL) born 1859 wrights cottages watford hertfordshire. I know they eventually moved to syston leicestershire and are buried there. THOMAS died april, 1938 and CHARLOTTE died 4 april,1929. WILLIAM was their first born son and he married ELSIE BUNDY IN 1919 winchester hampshire.
THOMAS and CHARLOTTE were my 2x grandparents. they had 11 children 2 died very young. My great grandfather was JOHN BENJAMIN SELBY he married LUCY DARBY and they moved to canada. There was also THOMAS SELBY which I am still trying to find more about him but I know he married ANN STEVENS. But this was her married name from her first husband. Her name at birth was ANN CORAH. Thomas was born in 1888 loughborough leicestershire. They married the 26 dec, 1914 at the St-peters church loughborough. Another one of the family was ARTHUR SELBY he married EVA SUTTON. there was also CHARLOTTE MARIA SELBY who married GEORGE WHITEHEAD. EDITH SELBY married ALBERT KEMP and ELSIE SELBY married FREDERICK SUTLIFF. I have alot of inof on most of my family in this tree except WILLIAM GEORGE HENRY SELBY and THOMAS SELBY. The 2 children that died were DORIS MAY SELBY died 1901 and ERNEST SELBY died 1900 . Oh! there was also HILDA MAY SELBY who married GEORGE BRANSTON. So if anyone knows anyone who had these people in their tree please contact me. I have been in contact with some of these families but would like to know more about the others.
Look forward to hearing from a family member.
kind regards
charlotte

Use freebmd to do research.........

And it would be easier to help you if you just asked for the info you need...............

As for finding connections in GR trees..........use the 'search all trees' facility...it's under the 'search' button

I just noticed that in the 1911 census that there is a PAULINE SELBY age 29 in thefamily, very strange as I never noticed that name before. I am wondering if she is one of the children or visitor or wife to WILLIAM ???

Reggie

Reggie Report 1 Oct 2012 16:28

Her connection to the family will be shown on the census record, as will her place of birth......and her marital status

Please would you remove all the white space from your earlier posting...........

Thank you

And please use freebmd to do some research..............

Hello again I was wondering why in the 1891 census there is a HANNAH SELBY and in the 1911 census her name has changed to PAULINE SELBY any why can't I see her in the 1911 census and you can ??? Thank you? :-D

Reggie

Reggie Report 1 Oct 2012 22:29

Why do you imagine that Hannah Selby in 1891 is the same person as Pauline Selby in 1911?

Reggie

Reggie Report 1 Oct 2012 22:30

You haven't got rid of the white space......please do so

And please take note of the fact that William's surname was NOT Selby...

He was illegitimate, and his name was HULL
