Angela Lawrence (nee Cheshire)

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Roy Report 1 Aug 2013 17:43

I am trying to locate this lady who is a cousin that I last saw in 1966, when she was about 10 years old. I believe that she might still live in the Brighton area and may have 2 or 3 children. Her parents were Tony and June (formerly Moss). It would be to her benefit if she could make contact with me.

Welcome to the boards, Dorothy.

I cannot see the birth for an Angela Cheshire, with Mother's maiden name of Moss. What further information have you about her?

Presumably Tony is Anthony - any idea of wedding date?


Parents' marriage 1956 Willesden

Her marriage is of Angela I Cheshire in Brighton, 1981.

There appear to be children Samuel O and Sophie M, and they might be together as Sam, Angela and Sophie in Brighton in 2003 to 2005, and without Sophie in 2006 according to the ER.

Thanks guys. We can't find a specific birth date/place for Angela. Yes her father was Anthony and the wedding date in 1956 (Williesden) is what we have already. Also Angela's wedding in 1981. We also agree with Samuel Oliver and Sophie Michelle. We have tracked their whereabouts through the Electoral register, but still can't find a current address.

There is an Angela Lawrence showing on the ER for Brighton for 2012-2013 of approximately the correct age.


Roy Report 3 Aug 2013 12:25

Hi Patchem,

Yes, agreed about the Angela Lawrence in Brighton for 2012-3, but on trying 118118, who are worse than useless, I was told that there was no-one by her name at that address (46, Queens Park Rise), so where do we go from here please?

Have you tried writing to the address?


Roy Report 3 Aug 2013 13:19

Thanks Jan,

Not yet but will definitely do - only just started this really. Have written to two prospective children based on other ER info, and phoned another Angela Lawrence, but not right person.


Roy Report 21 Aug 2013 10:36

Have now written to the address in Brighton, but more than two weeks on have had no repsonse.

Have you considered a different approach? Slight bit of guesswork, but if this is her father, his death cert might well help you, though admittedly it's quite a while back

Thank you for your continued interest. We already have Anthony's death certificate, and there are no viable clues there, unfortunately. His "new" wife then who reported his death has also passed on.

June's maiden name was Knight not Moss. She was married before to a Harold Moss



Roy Report 21 Aug 2013 18:19

Hello Rose,

You seem to have an interesting angle here - we've seen the name Knight before, but couldn't see how it figured. Can you help any further please? However, don't understand the "Researching" comment above that has been added though!



patchem Report 21 Aug 2013 23:23

Have you got the 1956 marriage certificate, which will show June's Father?

This is the previous marriage:
Marriages Sep 1950
KNIGHT June MOSS Surrey N. 5g 1085
Moss Harold Knight Surrey N 5g 1085

So this is the birth;
Births Mar 1956
Cheshire Angela I Knight Hendon

Rose's researching comments are not related to you, but are to the world in general.


Roy Report 22 Aug 2013 08:21


Thank you very much for your kind research. After your pointer we were able to find and understand the Knight connection and have found all the dates above with GRO reference numbers. It has put things into a different, convoluted perspective, but we still don't know whether we'll find Angela.

However, thank you for all your help.
