Carried over from part 15 ....

Hi Mary,

Thank you very much for the lookup, the 2 Anns you have found are a bit younger than I am looking for. There are a couple from FreeBMD that I have found that could be promising if anyone has a Leicester burial index and would be kind enough to let me know the ages if they are listed

Deaths Sep 1843 (>99%)

CONWAY Robert Leicester 15 73

Deaths Dec 1845 (>99%)

CONWAY Ann Leicester 15 89

Hi Mike,

Ignore my last look-up request (Richard and Letitia Pool and their children) - I've just realised I asked the same thing on one of the old threads, and I don't think you were able to find anything.

Sorry about the duplicate request.

Hi again Rose Tea,

Thank you very much for the lookup regarding Robert Conway, it looks quite likely you have found the right person. I'm not 100% sure of his birth year and I will need to do some more research to prove it conclusively - it's great that I have something to work with now!

Ooh, brilliant, Mike, for finding Mary Ann and Selina. That William looks quite promising, too. I was quite convinced they must all have died in infancy. Off to have another look at the censuses.

Thanks very much!

Hi Mike,

I have all their baptism and birth dates from the IGI, and I checked out the three St. Margaret's baptisms myself on the BTs at my local LDS centre.

If you've already typed them out and feel like copy-pasting them here, that'd be nice, so I can check that there's no mistake in the IGI extracted entries, but if you haven't, I don't think it's worth typing them up specially.

Thanks Mike and Elaine,

According to 1851, Thomas was Jane's toy boy - her 53 to his 39!!

Also at home, 56 Belgrave Gate, are Jane's children by first marriage - Edward Henry, 21, Jane, 18 and John Thomas, 16. Father of the children, John Butler, died in 1834.

In 1841 Jane and Thomas have baby son James Snaith with them, but he looks to have died in 1843.

HI Mike and everybody!

Mike, would you mind having a look on your Welford Rd. cemetery disc please? I'm looking for Charles Edward Wright who was living in Yeoman Lane in 1901 with niece Alice Mary Wright and then disappears. Is it name searchable? I have asked you to look for Alices's mother, also Alice Mary before but no luck!

Thank you
