Denise, the only John Barrett i can see was born abt 1870 in Stepney and was a geneal labourer................ do you know of any other relatives or who he might be with so i can try and match them with him too? Jane x


Jane Report 19 May 2006 22:30

Lynette, now have had a look for this family on 1901 and earlier census' and all i can come up with is William b. 1867 , Wolverhampton in 1871 & 1881. i am a little confused as to what relation they are to each other, are they brother & sisters, married, who's children are Harriet & Charles??? if you could shed any light on this matter for me, i'll have another look for you..... Jx UPDATE , now realise Sarah Ann is daughter but b 1890 , not 1870 as you told me lol, having found them in 1891, so still looking for 1901 be right back


Lynette Report 19 May 2006 22:37

Hi this family are proving to be a pain to trace. William and jemima were both born 1870 i have their certificates. However from 1870-1891 william cant be traced at all, but his wife i found lots. I have them on the 1891 census living in graiseley passage with their daughter sarah, but they dasappear again on the 1901. charles and harriet are william and jemimas children but im a little unsure of their dates of births, due to lack of census or certificates. Hope this is of help lynette


Jane Report 19 May 2006 22:50

Lynette, they have gone completely off the face of the earth !!!!!!! lol, did find these though, apologies if you already have them: Births Sep 1897 --------------------------- Padmore Charles Wolverhampton 6b 571 Births Jun 1891 ------------------------ Padmore Harriet Wolverhampton 6b 599 Marriages Mar 1912 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Padmore Harriet Mayes Wolverhampton 6b 669 Deaths Sep 1910 ---------------------------- Padmore Jemima 39 Wolverhampton 6b 261 but honestly ,was searching for them just using 1st 3 letters of first name only, and still nothing that fits. they must have gone off with my lot that avoided the census every year !!!!!! sorry Jane


Lynette Report 19 May 2006 22:58

Thanks for looking jane i had the info you have so i will have to make do with that for the time being. Thanks again Lynette


Jane Report 19 May 2006 23:11

Denise, sorry.......... bad news, think your lot has joined mine & Lynettes missing persons list too................ tried searching with the 2 Alices but still nothing i'm afraid think i'm losing my touch, lol Jane


Jane Report 20 May 2006 18:43

Hi again Tracy, sorry chick........... i don't think there is anything that will tell you exactly where someone works, all you can go on is census, but that will only tell you occupation, not exactly where they work ( unless you're lucky and were at work when census was taken, lol) and obviously have to wait in 10 yr gaps !! there are also the business directories, but they don't show the employees either sorry :O(( Jane x


Jane Report 20 May 2006 19:16

Denise, have had another good look for you, but i swear they are not in the country !!!!!! thought it might help looking for a different birthplace , but no. only thing i can try now is wife Alice, have obviously tried searching for her, but it might be better if i knew her age and birthplace too, have tried baby Alice, that didnt work either ! Jx


Wulliam Report 20 May 2006 20:23

Hi Jane, many thanks for the kind offer. I am looking for a family in 1871 and/or afterwards: I don't know the parents. Children were Toni, Annie, Hannah Catherine, Harry & Jennie SLEIGHT. Hannah Catherine was born c1866. They were almost certainly in Lincolnshire - possibly Gainsborough. If you find them then I would be most grateful for images - I'll pm my email address if that is OK with you. Kind regards, William


Jane Report 20 May 2006 20:44

William, no problem, have an image for you already................. just need that address....................................... Jx ps, do you know the years of births for the other children? i believe i have found Harry in 1875, but thats it................ and........... when you say you want 1871 and afterwards, which way do you want me to go, up to 1901, or back to 1841, lol think thats it now, he he


Jane Report 20 May 2006 23:03

Susan Report 21 May 2006 16:42

Hi Jane , thanks for the offer. Could you try to find John Guerin on the 1861. He would be aged 13/14 born in Chatham Kent.There is one same name but is 16 and born in Canada. Unless he lied about age and birthplace to get in the navy it is definately not him. Also the name gets spelt wrongly quite often. Sue
