I have a Harry Mitchell born 1866 Altrincham Cheshire
Parents John Mitchell and Ann Greenall , I have Censuses from 1971 to 1911 which matches him being born 1866 yet the Baptism I have is 1874/5
1911 he is at * Show Rd Altincham with his sister Francis a Fish and Cheppere Potsole Business

I think I have followed the right Harry but I'm hoping the 1921 census will tell me if I have followed the right Harry and if he married

Thank you

No result for Harry Mitchell born Altrincham 1866 +/- 2yrs on 1921 census

not all children were baptised as soon as born

Sister Frances b c1860 baptised 1860

Brother Samuel born c 1858 baptised 1858 - his surname shows as MitchelE / MitchellE

Yes Nothing

I've just seen another tree and they have him in Yorkshire Married 1915 to an Ellen Lambert

Was there a Harry In Yorkshire that matches


ErikaH Report 22 Dec 2023 19:30

Digest my info, please - then come back with your response.


Sylann Report 22 Dec 2023 19:32

Just seen What you have I have Pearson Not got Taylor

And thank you for getting Harry's death I looked on GRO but nothing

And once again Thank you for your time much appreciated


Sylann Report 22 Dec 2023 20:29

It all seems to fit
I had Emma had married Joseph Pearson and they had a Daughter Beatrice and her marriage which I didn't think I had
I got the probate up for Harry and yes the address was the same

It seemed as though Greyghost had put Harry was baptised the same time as Harry unfortunatly I was hoping to see the entry for both but only Emma came up

I can close Harry now and feel satisfied I have the right one
