Patricia Report 7 Nov 2005 17:23

Hi Tracy,thanks for your offer of help. I have been trying to find either a death or a marriage for my grandmother without any luck so far. Florence Charlotte Dummer born 13th Aug 1891 and she married Herbert Henry Hartery Dec 1913. My Herbert died 20th Dec 1917 and as my dad went into an Orphanage some time later I wondered if she either died or remarried. If you could search up to 1920 I would be most grateful. Thank you. Regards Patricia

Hi, Just wondering if you can help please? My great grandfather was born 26/07/1861 at 39 Stanhope St., Toxteth Park, in the county of Lancaster. The family came from Devon, it looks as though he was illegitimate, was born at the above address and then returned to Devon. Can you find out who lived there at that time, please? His birth name was Collins but changed to Collins Rogers at his mother's marriage several months later. I would love to know if she went to family or ?? Regards Margaret. My great grandfather's name was Charles Stetson Collins, his mother - Emma Collins. If possible I would like to know the inhabitants of 39 Stanhope St. at the 1861 census please. Thanks!

Unknown Report 7 Nov 2005 22:00

Tracy, if you are still awake! I have been looking in vain for records of the birth of Margaret Williamson. The earliest record I can find is the 1871 census where she is living as a boarder and is 6yrs. of age. I've also looked through BMD index. Any ideas? Thanks, Diane.

Hi Tracy, I would appreciate any help in locating a birth and death record for one side of my family that is proving very difficult. The birth is for my great grandmother Nancy Kell who is aged 6 on the 1861 census and at the Childrens Establishment, Stepney Union together with sister Martha aged 12. Birthplace unknown for both but I have Martha's birth certificate and she would have been 12 in 1861 so hopeful this is her correct age which would mean born 1854/1855. Martha was born in Shadwell in 1849 as was an elder sister Susannah in 1845. In 1881 Nancy has become Annie Houghton (age 27) and birthplace is given as Whitechapel. No trace in 1871 or 1891, and although found no birthplace in 1901 (age 49) The death is for her mother also Martha. I have the family of mother Martha and daughters Susan and Martha in 1851 living at 7, Angel Gardens, Shadwell. I am thinking that mother Martha must have died before 1861 but have not been able to find a death record. A Martha Kell died in Marylebone in 1857 but there was another Martha Kell on the 1851 census living there so think this is likely to be her record. In 1851 although stated as married there is no husband and no father named on Martha's birth certificate and Susan has a father with a different name altogether. Any help much appreciated. Rose
