Hi Mary Once again thanks. You have been agret help in finding missing family. Especially the Backhouse's as they always seem to have their name mis-spelt. I know how they fell like, as people still mis-spell it today. Kind regards Nikki Backhouse

Hi Lilian I have not been able to locate Christine(a) under the name Meldon or Duffy. Sorry Mary


Frances Report 11 Oct 2004 20:32

Hi Mary You have already done a couple of look ups for me so I hope it's OK to ask for another. Could you do an Ancestry 1871 look up for George Winter aged 14 give or take a year born in Bermondsey or Southwark.Thank you Frances


Nicola Report 11 Oct 2004 16:14

Hi Mary Thanks for that. I wonder where John snr has disappeared to. I know it is really cheeky of me, but if you get a chance could you do another look-up for me on the 1891 census? Frederick John Backhouse born c1846 Bath Somerset occupation Upholsterer I believe his wife is called Caroline and they had a daughter Norah, but not 100% sure, born about 1888. He was living in Blandford, Dorset on the 1881 census. Any family members living with him would be great. Thanks for your help. Kind regards Nikki

Thank you very much for the Meldon info, Mary. This is a mystery because today I received a birth certificate for CHRISTINE (CHRISTIAN) MARY MELDON, born September 1865, parents JOHN and CHRISTINA (nee DUFFY) MELDON. I now have to assume they weren't married when she was born. But why wasn't young Christine living with them? Could I trouble you, yet again, to have another look for CHRISTINE (CHRISTIAN) MELDON or a CHRISTINE DUFFY, age 5, living in the Liverpool, Everton, West Derby or Toxteth park areas. Many thanks, Lilian

Hi Lilian I found this rather strange entry on 1871 census Living at 2 Court Roscoe St,Liverpool John Meldon 49 Married Rigger b Ireland John Meldon 6 Son b Liverpool Christian Duffy 34 Servant b Ireland The sex of the servant is shown as male,ie the age is in the male column. I hope you can make sense of it. Mary

Mike I found your folks on the Welsh census BUT I cannot access the image,it comes up with an Error Message and will not allow me to print the image. Will try later today,might be a temporary problem. Mary

Hi Mary Thankyou for all the info-it's really good to have the addresses and households sorted out. Thanks! Best wishes Heather


Mary Report 10 Oct 2004 23:42

Heather I have found John Stoney he is not not living in the same household as Harry and Emma. John age 73 and wife Hariott age 67 are lodging next door to Harry and Emma with Sarah French age 79.There is also an Emily Stoney age 10 described as Granddaughter.So Does not really answer your query. The rest of the entry for Harry /Emma is as follows: living at Pleck Cottage ,Corley.Warwickshire Harry Stoney 38 Bricklayers Labourer b Allesley Emma Stoney 37 Wife b allesley Harry stoney 14 Son Scholar b Allesley Alice Stoney 11 daur Scholar b Allesley Sarah C Stoney 9 Daur Scholar b Allesley Emily Stoney 4 Daur b Corley William Stoney 1 Son b Corley Mary

Hy Mary if you have time I would love to find this info.I traced my GGgrand dad,on Ancestry,s but the system would not let me print out the original census form(1871), now my sub has run out. If it was possible to down load, and email it to me I would be most grateful. It is for Samuel Pugh age 30(in 1871) Born Llandilo Grabon Radnorshire Wales He has 2 daughters (twins) Mary and Rosa ,age 1and Daughter Lizzy age 9 and Wife Mary age 29. Civil parish Llanwrtyd Breconshire. This is a big part of my family Jigsaw. Kind regards Mike Pugh [email protected]

Hi Mary, Many thanks for the info on the Mooneys and Needhams. When you have the time, could you please have a look for CHRISTINE MELDON'S parents, JOHN and CHRISTINA? They could be living in Liverpool, West Derby, Everton or Toxteth Park. Thanks again, Lilian

Hi Mary I would appreciate a lookup for JOHN STONEY (aged 73) in the 1891 Coventry census. I am interested to know his relationship to Harry and Emma Stoney who should be in the same household. Many thanks. Heather
