I am searching for decendents of Emily Maud Morris of Hammersmith she was the Birth mother of my Father in law who was adopted by the Bishop family in Merseyside sometime after his birth in 1912. We Know nothing else about her or wether she married and had more children all lines have so far drawn a blank. Does anyone out there know what happened to her?

Brummiejan -

The FMP 1901 census stops at Ellen M Morris.

The family below is Charles H Rivers and family??

Stuart, not quite sure what you are asking, but there is no Rivers family on the page.

Sorry Brummiejan - it was me misreading what you had put. I see know that you have actually posted the 1901 and 1911 census.
I was reading it that Harvey George etc were with Henry G on the same 1901 census you'd posted. And on FMP the family that followed Henry's lot were the Rivers, not Harvey!!!
Hope I've not confused you further.

I am totally confused Stuart, but no matter! Might be the Christmas sherry, hic ...
We need some feedback from Lorraine I think.
