Sorry Frank, That was only for 1851. Laurie

Hi Laurie, Could I be really cheeky and ask if you could look up the deaths of Minnie Elizabeth Bates she died after 1954 and (I believe) after 1960. She was born about 1881 not sure where. Also Stephen Tappin born about 1802 probably died in London/Middlesex (not the one who dies in 1862(that was his son))and Henry George Tappin born 27 August 1839 died between Dec 1857 and 1874. Many thanks Michaela

Hi Margaret Drysdale, Sorry nothing coming up for his death in Sheffield. Laurie


Laurie Report 14 Jul 2004 14:00

Hi Margaret Drysdale, Sorry I can't see a death for him in Sheffield. Laurie


Michaela Report 14 Jul 2004 13:58

Hi Laurie, Thanks for looking, Haggerston is in London. At that time it was classified as Middlesex. VMT Michaela

Hi Frank, Sorry I haven't got the 1901 for Belfast. Have you tried looking on the links page for the census finder? It might have it on there and it's a free site. Laurie


Laurie Report 14 Jul 2004 13:42

Hi Georgina Clements, Sorry I checked Oxford and Bucks but High Wycombe isn't listed. The death indexes after 1983 give dates of birth but anything before that ie 1800-1900 doesn't. For a death of that time you'd need to go through the parish and probate records of the particular area in Kent. If you can give me an area to go on I can see if I can find his death through Ancestry. laurie

Hi Laurie. Me again. Just realised you said you had Parish Registers.! Is it possible you could find the marriage of James Smith born Stockport Cheshire c1818 and Sarah Redfern (Redfearn) born 1822 in Stockport please. They had a son George born 1848, but I don't know if he was their first child. Thank you, Margaret


Unknown Report 13 Jul 2004 18:39

Hi Laurie, I am looking for the death of William Swift, born Boston Lincs in 1845. He was living in Melinda Street, Sheffield with 2 sons and was a lodger with Annie Ibbotson, Head, in 1891, but he is not on 1901 census. Sons have been 'adopted' by another family. Annie now died. I am presuming he died in Sheffield. Thank you, Margaret

Hi Laurie You very kindly found what i thought was my gr grandmother Mary anne Denton at Sutton Wick on 1871 census I dont think it is her as the ages do not tie up.Would you be so kind as to look her up as born 1860 in Drayton Berkshire . There are so many around and i think i have muddled as living at Sutton Wick in 1901 .All of these villages are very close together . Thanks and sorry for the mistake Val
