Did you check after 1904 I looked at first two quarters of 1905 but really slow at the moment to download image, sometimes they get married after you think they have ~ very odd! Zoe


Julie Report 11 Mar 2006 17:46

Zoe Yes I did. Julie


Zoe Report 11 Mar 2006 17:05

Julie So presume you checked 1901 through to the end of 1904 is that correct? Zoe


Julie Report 11 Mar 2006 16:57

Zoe I have looked on ancestry beta and free bmd. Amy emma was born at St Thomas's Road,Hardway, in the sub district of Alverstoke, county of Southampton on 30th June 1904. As Alice was in York unmarried in 1901 census and is married on Amy's birth cert I have presumed they married between 1901 and 1904 Thanks Julie

Hi Zoe, When James married he was a caretaker for the royal insurance buildings in Sheffield, he lived there too. His father was Deceased and occupation was an Engine Driver. Thanks for your help on this major mystery. Zoe :)

Hi Zoe Thank you so much. That's great news I will now send for Alice birth cert.I have been lucky my gran Amy was organised and have got her birth and marriage certs(originals) Alice and Arthur are being the tricky ones especially Arthur. Just when ever you have the time to see if you can see their marriage will be great. It might be me that needs new pair of glasses and can't see for looking. Thanks again Zoe. Take care.Julie

I posted this on your previous thread but did not get a response. Does this mean you could not help? have a brick wall which no-one has been able to help me break down. Hope you can help Jane Ann Gorringe nee Robertson b 13/4/1872 Tweedmouth And her children George Edward Gorringe b 17/12/1895 Sunderland (My grandfather) Margaret Gorringe b DecQ 1897 Sunderland Thomas Gorringe b Mar Q 1900 Grimsby. She had two more children in 1902 and 1907 in Grimsby. I have found her husband George Edward b 19/5/1870 living in Grimsby in the 1901 census with his brother James R b 1883. But I cannot find Jane or the three children anywhere in 1901. If you can find these for me, I will be eternally grateful. Many thanks in advance Jo

Jane Ok looked in 1901 see what you mean I think you will have to order birth cert to find out who parents are! and address she was born at! There is a woman there also called Jessie in the household he lives in maybe a coincidink but you never know. Order cert only way to find out ~ If you get it please tell me who parents are always intrested ~ or just nosey LOL 1891 Asher is a Ironmongers Assistant Arthur a Fitters Assistant Arthur A Dalton abt 1873 Bethnal Green, London, England Son West Ham Essex Asher Dalton abt 1849 Coggeshall, Essex, England Head West Ham Essex Elizabeth Dalton abt 1846 Newington, London, England Wife West Ham Essex Ellen C Dalton abt 1885 Stratford, Essex, England Daughter West Ham Essex Jane Dalton abt 1876 West Ham, Essex, England Daughter West Ham Essex Kate A Dalton abt 1888 Stratford, Essex, England Daughter West Ham Essex Rachel C Dalton abt 1876 Bethnal Green, London, England Daughter West Ham Essex William F Dalton abt 1880 West Ham, Essex, England Son West Ham Essex

Glyn Is this possibly James in 1871 Pigeon Bridge Head is a coal miner You could check by finding his marriage cert and checking fathers name! James Hughes abt 1841 Sedgley, Staffordshire, England Head Yorkshire Maria Hughes abt 1842 Dipfield, Staffordshire, England Wife Yorkshire Sarah Hughes abt 1866 Rotherham, Yorkshire, England Daughter Yorkshire ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Have you any of the childrens birth certs then you could clarify mothers maiden name? and then find a marriage cert to confirm fathers! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Zoe


Zoe Report 11 Mar 2006 12:44

Zoe Strange one looked through all the James Hawkin* orn 1870 +/-2 in the 1881 census to see if any had a father called Henry no sign of your guy! You have his marriage cert what was his job and address at time of marriage. Now I only seem to be able to find one Henry Andrew Hawkins and he is a Baker and no son called James Arrgghhh And based on the birth date you gave there are only two births for that name one in Berkshire and another in Islington yours is not the one in Berkshire found him no James with them! Couldn't find the one born Islington Zoe

Hi Zoe. I have asked for your help before on the Boag part of my tree now I have another mystery for you. My grandmother Amy Emma White born 30/6/1904 in Alverstoke.I have birth cert.Parents Mother Alice Jane Amy White nee Hindle.1901 census a nurse in York.I am able to work back with her. Father Arthur Martin White a clerk.All I know about him was he was a drunk and hit Alice. Can not find marriage for Alice and Arthur.I looked between 1901 and 1904 as from the details I have they must of married between these dates.I don't know where Arthur was born so can't look up census.Wondered if another pair of eyes could check marriage. Thank you Julie

Liz Who does it state the father is on the certs or does it have no name? Her age is fine to have children and it sometimes happens when they are a widow they have children after ~I had one where she named the dead husband the father 4 years after he died ~ think they must have got lonely! Zoe

Carol So sorry no access to Irish records ~ Good luck in your search Zoe


Zoe Report 11 Mar 2006 11:42

Tracey Where have you looked have you looked through the GRO records for marriages and deaths? Now do you have any of the birth certs as these would tell you parents names and should have an address the parents were registered at time of birth. Now once you have this address you can do a Electoral roll lookup for that address and see who was living there.~don't have access sorry Hope this helps Zoe


Zoe Report 11 Mar 2006 11:39

Rebecca Can't help you on that side on things ~ Sorry. Put a post on the Trying to find board I'm sure someone will help you out there Good luck Zoe
