Hello again Could you please do a look up for me for Ellen Eliza Backhouse. She was born in Bath in 1870, and was living in Cardiff on the 1881 census with her parents William and Sarah Backhouse, but she seems to have disappeared after that. There is a family story that she became an actress and that her father disowned. I would love to find out if it is true. Thanks for your help again. Kind regards Nikki

The head of the family is Alfred V Dowling 46 Commercial traveller his wife is Judith B Dowling age 43 + one child age 10. Regards Mary

Hi Mary, thanks for the lookup. Just a thought that struck me - OUCH! Re Nikki's Ellen: she may have been disowned for going on the stage but work was erratic then just as now. She could have been 'resting' when she was a servant - the equvalent of temping, waitressing, barwork, etc for our present day actresses. Best wishes all Beth :)

Hi Mary I am 30 mins s/east of Perth 60 mins drive to Mandurah. Very many thanks for your look ups for me, comfirms the Coopers as my g,g grandparent now want to find who Susannah Cooper was, Clara Clements married William Cooper in 1881, see now why no fathers name for her on the wedding cert, I know the old union workhouse in Witney we use to go to bingo there, it was a factory then little did I know about its past history (I must find some information about it) and the family connection cheers ANN

Hi Victor I am sorry I cannot help with an 1861 lookup for the Clifford family as I only have 1861 for Oxfordshire and the latest census on Ancestry is 1871.BUT I checked 1871 and George and children are on but he is a widower and it would seem she died after the birth of the last child who was born in Woolwich 1867. So I looked for a death in of a Clifford female age about 35/40 and found this Sarah Ann Clifford age 39 March Qtr 1871 Woolwich Vol1d Page 616. It might be worth investing £7 to buy the certificate if all else fails. Good luck Mary

Hi Contance Would it be possible to try and look up Mary Bird in the 1861-1871 census. I'm not quite sure if it will be Attleborough, Morley St Peter or Morley St Botolph Norfolk. These places are all in the same sort of area. The last time that I have her information is in the 1851 Census for Morley St Peter Forehoe Norfolk. I would be really greatful for any help with this. With best regards David

Colin I have a problem with James Edgington from Woodstock on 1861 census as the enumerators books have been lost for the Woodstock district and there is no info available. Sorry Mary


Mary Report 10 Oct 2004 10:24

David Sorry not able to help you with this look up as I do not have access to an 1861 census for Norfolk and Norfolk is not yet on Ancestry 1871. Good luck Mary

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
