CLARA ANN CLEMENTS d/o/b 1862 WITNEY ? any family of hers. many thanks again for you time and trouble. ANN


Tammy Report 6 Oct 2004 10:06

Hi Mary, Thanks very much anyway. I'll try the other look up. Good luck with the rest of your research Tammy


Mary Report 6 Oct 2004 09:44

Tammy Sorry but I do not think I am able to help with your lookup,I do not have access to any Lancashire records other than 1871. You would do better asking for a lookup on the board for the 1851 or 61 Lancashire census. Mary


Tammy Report 6 Oct 2004 01:37

Hi Mary, I wonder if you are still so kindly doing lookups would it be possible to do a search on the below persons. They are not 100% straighforward so i understand if you are not able to do it. 1841 Lancs Census Samuel Higginbotham (or spelt Higginbottom) b b/f 1820 most likely lancashire (Samuel may have been a plumber and glazier as he stated on charlses birth certif in 1838. Esther Higginbotham (or spelt Higginbotton) wife of Samuel b b/f 1820 and Charles Higginbotham etc b 1838/1839 in Manchester They were also at Mill Street in 1838 when charles was born Thanks for looking at this anyway Tammy

Mary, Many thanks for looking for the Duffett family, I had no luck on the 1901 index either. Thanking you Diane


Mary Report 5 Oct 2004 00:20

Irene which census do you want me to look at for John Skerrett,I have 1841/51/61/71 for Oxfordshire. Regards Mary


Mary Report 4 Oct 2004 14:18

Diane Sorry but I have not been able to locate the Duffet family on either 1891 or 1901 censuses. I have tried all the tricks with wild cards etc but nothing. Mary

Hi Mary After going to Oxford Records Office yesterday I have started to knock down some of my brick walls :-) I found my gggg Grandad (Thomas Tims) on the 1851 surname census index with his wife (Mary Tims). His Wife died in 1855 but he didnt die until 1868 (both were bured at Barford St John church so must have stayed in the area). I was wondering if you could see if you could find both of them on the 1841 and just him on the 1861, unfortunately I ran out of time. This is the info I have from 1851 surname index which may help you find them on the 1841 and 1861 :- Folio 148, Barford St John & St Michael Thomas Tims - Head - 62 years old - Ag Lab - Born Barford Mary Tims - Wife - 55 years old - Born Barford Elizabeth Tims - Daughter - 22 years old - Born Barford (The spelling of Tims seems to vary between Tims and Timms) Many thanks for any info you can find. Karen PS Also if its not too much trouble, could you tell me the address of where they lived in 1851 as the census index didnt say it just said Barford St Michael & St John, the folio page is 148. Many thanks once again, youve been a brilliant help with my family tree :-)

Thanks for looking Mary, Ann Shuker married Zachariah Foster in 1876, and I only have her in 1881 aged 46, I was just trying to find out if she had been married before, I'll have to send off for another cert. Many thanks. Belle.


Diane Report 3 Oct 2004 03:25

Hello Mary, I would like an 1891 lookup, which will hopefully give me more clues to find them on 1901, I have found them on the 1881 census, and think the family should look something like this in 1891.(spelt duffitt on 1881) Frederick Duffett 40 born Southwark Sarah Duffett wife 38 born Southwark Frederick Duffett son 13 b Southwark William Duffett son 11 b southwark Annie was born in 1891. I think you'll find them around Southwark/Camberwell areas of London. Thank you so much for your time and help. Diane NSW Australia

Dear Constance. Thank you for looking. Valerie


Mary Report 2 Oct 2004 15:21

Belle The only Ann Shuker b Market Drayton I can find in the 1871 census is recorded as Annie Shuker age 20 working as a General Domestic Servant for a family called Johnson in Everton,Liverpool. What other censuses does she appear in? Sorry not more positive Mary


Belle56 Report 2 Oct 2004 13:06

Hi Mary, could you find a Ann Shuker in 1871 for me please, she was around 36, and was born Market Drayton, Shropshire, but could have been living in Northamptonshire at the time. Many thanks, Belle.


Mary Report 2 Oct 2004 12:50

Valerie I have had a look at the available counties on 1871 Ancestry but could not find your Bunnell family.I think they are probably in Norfolk which is not yet on Ancestry1871.Sorry. Mary


Valerie Report 2 Oct 2004 12:38

Dear Constance. Thank you very much for your offer, could you look up in the 1871 census Michael Bannell b c1832 Grimstone, Norfolk and I think his wife was called Emma Regards Valerie

hi Mary, thanks for second look-up for Annie Edmondson, i think this time you have found her, living with a Station Master , she married my uncle Daniel Sanford, 10/02/1897 at Poulton Le Sands, (just received Mar.Cert.) and he was railway signal man, you are right they are alusive to find, found them on 1901 census, they seem to have disapeared after this date. once again thanks.
