Mardi Report 3 Sep 2004 07:16

Hi Nicola, Could you please do a lookup for me in Devon? His name is Alfred Thomas Parker and in the 1871 census he is listed as aged 14 years old..born in Plymouth, how ever I have other records of him saying that he was born in Devonport. There is a slight possibility that he may come from a military family. Many thanks, Kaye.


nic87 Report 3 Sep 2004 22:27

Hi Kaye, Do you have the names of a parent or an older sibling, as Alfred is too young to appear on the 1851 census? Nicola


Mardi Report 4 Sep 2004 03:33

Hi Ian,Gosh how could I be so stupid!! I needed the 1861 embarassing. Regards, Kaye


Zena Report 4 Sep 2004 05:41

Thanks for that Ian Will now see if he fits in the family tree Zena


Skewedhalo Report 13 Sep 2004 21:53

Hi, Please can you look for a Sophia Bird for me. She was born in Sidmouth, Devon in either abt. 1831 OR abt. 1841 (records I have so far contradict themselves!). Her father's name was John Bird. They moved to Surrey later on, so could have already have left Devon by 1851, but I would be very grateful if you could check for me. Thanks, Sharon


nic87 Report 14 Sep 2004 20:19

Hi Sharon, Only two had a father named John, but one was in Norfolk, the other in Warwickshire. Sorry about that. Nicola


Julie Report 19 Sep 2004 18:26

Hi nicola could you look for me please James Greeves/Greaves age 40 Mary Ann Greeves/ Greaves age 39 Phoebe Greeves/Greaves age 13 last known to be in Brancaster Norfolk Thank you Julie


nic87 Report 22 Sep 2004 17:09

Hi Julie, Sorry, i couldnt find this family anywhere in Norfolk. Sorry i took so long to reply, i've been very busy! Nicola


Julie Report 22 Sep 2004 17:31

Hi Nicola thank you for looking for me Julie


Skewedhalo Report 22 Sep 2004 19:42

Hi Nicola, No worries. Thank you so much for looking. Could I ask you to do another lookup for me? This time for Warwickshire? I have a Sarah Mullis(s) who would have been aged about 4 or 5 in 1851, who was born in Harbury, Warwickshire. Her parents are John and Sarah Mullis(s), but I have no ages or birthplaces for them, I am afraid. There should also be another child, John, who would have been aged about 2. he was christened at Harbury so probably born there too. Thanks, Sharon


nic87 Report 22 Sep 2004 21:18

Hi Sharon, Sorry, I couldn't find a Sarah and John together, and neither with a child called Sarah, under both variations of the surname. Sorry about that, Nicola


Skewedhalo Report 22 Sep 2004 22:26

Once again Nicola, Thank you so much for looking for me. Sharon
