Please supply as much info as you have when requesting lookups, Which census/dates/birthplaces/likely whereabout. MY GEOGRAPHY ISN'T WONDERFUL (BUT IMPROVING...!) SO VILLAGE NAMES MAY NEED SOME LOCATING CLUES (NEAR...) PRETTY PRETTY PLEASE can you do the subraction sums and post years of birth not ages.... The more you can tell me the more likely i am to be able to find what you want! * * * * * * * * * Please re post name in response to queries - 'HE' was born in 1842 ' could apply to any number of people i am looking up!! ~Jess~

Thanks Jess, can you get copies of census. would be interested in the first one you sent me (sailor boy)& the Isle of Wight birth? Don't think its the two that say son are right as I already have his parents in Ryde in 1891. Best wishes Jenny

Can you look up Edward(s) Pinder born 1839. I have him on 1881 census, born Reighton, Yorkshire 1839, occupation, engine driver married to Elizabeth Pinder, born 1838, Flixton Yorkshire. Children Henry, Vickerman, Hannah and Francis. His father was John Pinder. Can you find him 1861 & 1871. Thanks

Hi, I'm looking for Thomas Edward Peek, Albert Edward Peek and Charles Reginald P Peek. I have all their births so don't worry about looking them up for me. I just need 1891/1901 for Thomas and 1901 census for Charles as I can't find them. Albert and Charles were borth born in Plymouth area, Albert 1878/9 and Charles 1876/7. I'm having a very hard time tracking them. Thanks Steve


Steve Report 17 May 2005 09:29

Thomas Edward Peek, born Honiton District 1848. Albert Edward Peek, born Plymouth 1878/79 Charles Reginald P (possibly Palmer) Peek born Plymouth 1876/77 All I need for these as I said before is 1891/1901 for Thomas, 1901 for Charles and maybe a death for Thomas or Charles or a marriage for Charles, its that simple. Obviously the 2 bottom ones are brothers, they are together in 1891 in Cornwall. Thanks Steve

Hi Jess. Would be greatful if you could assist me with info on family members I am having difficulty with. 1861 Census please. Name: SCRIVENER/SCRIVENOR Area: LUTON. BEDS. (Poss Leagrave/Limbury) Head: Charles 37 (b.1824) Wife: Eliza 38 (b.1823) Children: Would like info please+address and any other info given. Name: As above Area: LUTON. BEDS. Head: Thomas c58 (b.c1803) Apologies if more than one Thomas). Wife: Unknown. As above, would be greatful for any info on folks living with Thomas. Hope I haven't given you too much trouble Jess as I can see your time is very busy trying to help folks on different subjects. Mo


Maureen Report 17 May 2005 10:38

Blimey Jess. Are you 'rocket propelled'? Think your reply came through before my message went!! Right family. It's the James I am looking for but can't understand why not on 61 census. You will also note an Emily born 1860 on 1871 census and Emily born 1850 on 1871. Trying to prove that the 1850 is James' wife. However, thanks for this. Love to know how you found them so quick. Just had trouble with printer so not sure if you posted anything on Thomas yet. Would be greatful if you can find. He would be the father of Charles and have no info on him until I can find time to travel some distance to Luton to plough through Parish Regs. Mo

will be back later - supposed to be decorating!! Jess


Steve Report 17 May 2005 11:12

You're better at this than me Jess! I can find no marriage for Charles or a death neither. I can find a marriage for Albert in 1902 and found him on the census in 1901. Thomas is the problem. Finding him in 1891 and 1901 is a pain.

Maureen Report 17 May 2005 13:55

Hi Jess. Guess I am confusing you somewhat. The families I am investigating are as follows: Father: Thomas SCRIVENER/SCRIVENOR c1803 Luton, Beds Son: Charles 1824 - Wife Eliza G Son: James OR Edward James OR E. J. b. 1844 (James called himself all these names- not sure his birth name as birth not registered) These are three generations - have just about sussed out James. Have the marriage cert of Charles BUT still checking on Charles children and other info. Charles marriage cert gives a Thomas as father. This is as much as I know to date. I wondered if Thomas was still alive in 1861 and gives his wifes name or something more I can check on. I guess my biggest problem is Thomas. (You already gave me info on Charles). If you could check him out on 1861 census would be greatful. Mo
