Hi Jean I need to know a little more about Alice and Frederick in order to do a lookup. I need to know where they were born as West Ashford is the Registration District which covers several towns and villages. I have found possibles on both 1891 and 1901 but without place of birth I cannot be sure I am giving you the correct people. Do you have their birth certs? They are both on Freebmd which will give you the references which will enable you to get the birth certs,you will then know parents names and where they were born. Regards Mary

hi mary sorry frederick leonard pluckley1883 alice collison smarden 1883 thanks jean


Mary Report 19 Nov 2005 11:48

Hi Jean I am confident with Alice's lookup,not so sure about Frederic(k),but he is the only one in the West Ashford area that comes close,you will have to check his birth cert for parents names. 1891 Living in Smarden George Collison Head 38 Ag Lab b Smarden Martha J Collison Wife 30 b Sandhurst,Kent alice Collison Daur 7 Scholar b Smarden Kate Collison Daur 5 Scholar b Smarden Albert G Collison Son 3 b Smarden Frederick J Son 1 b Smarden 1901 Alice was living at Manchester House,Frittenden ,Kent age 17 employed as a General Domestic Servant by the Ash bee familoy I hope this is the correct Frederic(k) Pluckley,Bethersden and Smarden are all very close. 1891 Living in Bethersden John E Leonard Head 44 Ag Lab Sarah Leonard Wife 41 Thomas Leonard Son 19 Ag Lab Alfred Leonard Son 15 General farm lab Sarah A Leonard Daur 12 Scholar Eliza A Leonard Daur 10 Scholar Frederic Leonard Son 7 Scholar Stephen G Leonard Son 3 All were born Pluckley 1901 Living at Bethersden Edward J Leonard Head Wid 54 Waggoner Eliza A Leonard Daur 20 Housekeeper Frederic Leonard Son 17 Ag Lab Stephen G Leonard Son 14 Ag Lab All born Pluckley NB Change of name for Dad in 1901 but sure it is the same family.

Hi Mary, I am trying to track down Henry Dungworth, born in Sheffield Yorks in 1845. I think he got married in 1867 but I cannot find him in 1881. Please could you see if he is still in Sheffield in the 1871 census. Many thanks, Frances

Hi Thelma Sorry I cannot locate the Bennetts on the1851 census.I have checked the list of places in Bedfordshire on Ancestry and for some reason Heath and Reach is not included,so really don't know where to look. Regards Mary
