Hi Sheila, Could you please have a look at the 1851 census for me. Lancashire/Tonge/Middleton. Looking for Alice Halkyard b.c. 1826. Trying to find who her hubby was. I have her on the 1841, maiden name Spencer, no probs, my notes presume she married previous to 1851. Hope this is enough info. Thanks in anticipation. Cheers Margaret.

Hi Wondered if you could see if you could find this family on the 1871 census for me? Info is from 1881 census. As you can see they moved around a lot so not sure where they could be. Possibly northumberland as daughter (my great Gran) was born in Westmorland in 1871c. DAVID PARKER, age 46, b 1835c GLOUCESTER Gloucestershire, Railway foreman ALICE PARKER age 49, b 1832c York, Yorkshire TINY PARKER age 19, b 1862c York, Yorkshire WILLIAM PARKER, age 15, b1866 Dalkeith, Scotland, Railway miner SAM PARKER age 13, b1868c Derby, Engine cleaner ALICE PARKER age 10, b 1871c Westmorland Living at Railway Hut, Hungarton, Leicester at time of 1881 census. Any info you manage to find would be of great help. Dawn

hi shelia thankyou for the brewertons yes thats them great finding jeannette sunny today in nz


Russell Report 29 Apr 2007 14:03

Sheila, Thansk for looking up William Mason, before I go off and buy a copy does it have any other info on it as it doesn't seem to confirm a year of death. I presuem the registration date of 1893 was his birth year as that is also what I have. Could you possibly look for the marriage of these two people in Leicester between 1866-1870. Catherine Cooper abt 1848 Aylestone, Leicestershire, England Wife Leicester St Margaret Leicestershire Wm Cooper abt 1846 Narborough, Leicestershire, England Head Leicester St Margaret Leicestershire Thanks Russell
