I'm looking at Eliza Ann Thompson born in Bruton, Somerset for a friend (so not related myself). I feel I am on the correct lines with Henry Victor Thompson (my friend's father) born to Eliza Ann Thompson (d/o Henry and Harriet Thompson). Henry was living with his Grandmother (Harriet) in 1901 census, and Eliza has gone to Surrey to work as a servant. I also feel certain that it is this Eliza who marries Moses John Ayling and has children Elsie, Leslie and Timothy before the 1911 census. I think Leslie married an Esther Elizabeth Simpson in 1932, and Timothy married a Lena May Peters in 1936. My friend would love to find later generations of this family so please contact me if you know of any children.

Glynne you should remove your email address as its against T&C,s of the site to post it on here.

Keep checking back on this thread for any info that may be found and posted.

Try Search Trees to see if anyone has the family listed you can then contact them by using the find out more box

You say you think there are family connections through BMDS you have found but the best way to confirm is to buy some certs. Your friend will have to pay out I,m afraid if they want an accurate tree compiled

You don't have to 'think' about who married whom.........the records will be on freebmd

When you find them........use the same site to look for births

BUT.......you must be sure that the line you are following is accurate.

When and where was Henry Victor Thompson born?

The only way to be certain that the Eliza who married Ayling was his mother is to get the cert............and check the father's details, plus the woman's age at the time

Doesn't your friend know anything about his/her grandmother

You mention Somerset, so is this relevant?

Thank.you Reggie, you have found exactly what I have already found on ancestry.
My friend knew her father but he never spoke about his family --- I found he was illegimate, and living with his grandmother in 1901. I got back a few generations from there, and when the 1911 census came out, I found Moses etc and have worked forwards from there. It would be nice to contact living relatives now.

If you had all the info, why did you ask for help?

You must also have found the only possible birth of a child for either of the sons' marriages............follow it up, on Ancestry.

Or advise your friend to buy death certs for details of the informant(s)

Sorry -- but I wasn't asking for help on finding those regs you have above (although must admit I hadn't found any for children of the Ayling sons so will look for those).
I was looking for actual contact with a descendant. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
