Looking for descendents of Hnry (Harry) Jenkins. He was the son of Henry and FLorence JEnkins and was born in 1895. His last place of residence was in Newcastle. HE was my grandmother's brother.

Do you know if this is his birth - by Newcastle, do you mean Newcastle-upon-Tyne?

Births Sep 1895
JENKINS Henry Chester Le Street 10a 579

Have you got him in 1901 and 1911 censuses, have you looked to see if he is in anyone's tree on here, and do you know of any WW1 service?


Do you have him in 2 trees on here, birth either unknown or Nottingham?

This Henry (not Harry) has parents Henry and Florence, a little more information from you is needed:

1911 England Census
Henry Jenkins Age in 1911: 15 Estimated birth year: abt 1896
Relation to Head: Son Gender: Male
Birth Place: Basford, Nottinghamshire, England
Civil Parish: Habrough Immingham County/Island: Lincolnshire
Country: England
Street address: Martins Buildings Immingham
Marital Status: Single Occupation: Labourer
Registration district: Grimsby
Registration District Number: 422 Sub-registration district: Great Grimsby

Florence Jenkins 14
Rosina Jenkins 11 Eddington, Wiltshire,

I think Dorothy has Rosina Jenkins, 1899, in 2 trees on here, birth either unknown or Wales.

In that 1911 census, Rosina Jenkins has been crossed out, and 'forgot' written against the entry in the margin.

Henry was born in 1895 in Nottingham. He did live in Newcastle upon Tyne when he passed away. His parents, Henry and Florence Priestley were married in Chestefield. They had 11 children but only fived lived to adulthood. Each one of the children was born in a different place. ONe in Chesterfield, one in Nottingham. one in Loughborough, one in Wiltshire , two in Wales. I am not sure where all the others were born. My grandmother was the third child and second girl. I am not sure when Henry died. I think 1969 may be correct. His wire's name was Beatrice Harris. they had 4 children (according to my granmother) Harry,Robert, Ivy and another girl who died of diptheria.
My grand mother was FLorence Ethel Jenkins. SHe passed away in 1990 at the age of 93. She had 7 children, but 2 died early. Jackie died at birth and Phyliss died at 2. I have more information if anyone is related.

I am sure that the IVy you have listed is the correct one. I remember my grandmother saying that they lived there at one time. ALso it makes sense that beatrice Harris was born in Newcastle upon Tyne and the date is about correct. I think that the marriage date is about right. He and my grandfather came back from the war in 1919. My grandmother and Philip were married in 1919 and her brother probably got married in 1920. Can you tell me where "Stockton" is (listed on Ivy's birth record.

Thanks so much. BY the way, I may be listed under 2 accounts as I had a membership and then left for a while. When I came back I could not find any record of it. Can you find out how I can reclaim it as I had some into on it that I might needs. Thanks Jean
