Hi Jane could you look up John Henry Roberts in 1901 and 1871 plz he was born abt 1863-69, should be living with Edith Margaret and daughter (Alice Maude) in 1901 but with Father Henry in 1871 thanks Karen


Jane Report 30 Apr 2006 18:38

Hi again Karen, now, you didn't tell me where they were born or should be living so have done some detective work of my own................. please don't tell me i've got the wrong family !!! Marriages Mar 1899 --------------------------------- Harris Edith Margaret Bedwelty 11a 173 Roberts John Henry Bedwelty 11a 173 Births Mar 1878 --------------------------- Harris Edith Margaret Swansea 11a 649 but unfortunately with the combination of Roberts being a common name in Wales, and my Welsh geography being non-exsitent, i can't find them !!!! any more clues please?? Jx

Hello Jane, If you can can you have a look for Simon Watson & Elizabeth in Deptford,Kent please on 1841, also if possible John & Mary Ann Watson again Greenwich or Deptford, Kent. John DOB 1790 Deptford so about 50 ish and Mary Ann about 58 or 68. She was age 78 on 1851 but I don't think thats right. Many thanks Jenny

Hi Jane Cant thankyou enough for finding Thomas Candlin on 1841 census. Have been trying for ages to find him. Many thanks for your help Marlene


Jane Report 30 Apr 2006 20:23

Hi Jenny, is this a possibility for your John Watson ( if wife was known as Ann instead of Mary Ann!!) Elizh Moore abt 1839 Kent, England Greenwich Kent Ann Watson abt 1784 Kent, England Greenwich Kent Ann Watson abt 1817 Kent, England Greenwich Kent Geoe Watson abt 1822 Kent, England Greenwich Kent John Watson abt 1784 Kent, England Greenwich Kent John Watson abt 1824 Kent, England Greenwich Kent Maria Watson abt 1819 Kent, England Greenwich Kent also no Simon Watson's in Kent at all, only abt 6 in the country.... couldn't search for Elizabeth without a rough age, FAR too many, lol Jx


Jenny Report 30 Apr 2006 20:48

Hello Jane, thanks for looking for my Watson's. I think you've found them!!!!! Was there an address or Occupations at all? And could I possibly have the ref no please. The only children that I knew of for John & Mary Ann were William born 1815 I have him on 1841 living at Church Street, Greenwich, then Harriot Charlotta 1818 not found yet on 1841,Elizabeth 1818 again not found,Esther 1814 not found ,Ann 1817 not found yet, (possibly all married by now) then Maria 1819,George 1822 and John 1824 who are all three with the John & Ann you found.! Simon & Elizabeth are the parents for John born 1790 so they could be 20-30 years older than him and therefor possibly already deceased. The fact that you've not found Simon confirms this could you try looking for Elizabeth Watson aged about 70 but I don't fancy my chances. Many many thanks for your detective work I am very grateful. Best wishes Jenny
