Hi I am currently able to offer look up's for you, including Census records (except 1901), BMD's from 1837, Passenger Lists from 1890, and some Military records. Please provide as much info as possible.

Added 26.08.07 - I would ask you all to be a little patient, i will look up any records where possible but strangely, i do have a life also to arrange my time around (for starters i work full time and am currently planning a wedding and 9 months pregnant!!!) So please just be patient.

Thanks, Alison.

Hi Alison
I believe someone has provided you with the census results for him now, but let me know if not.

Hello Ian
I am trying to find details of Ellen and William Llewellyn Thomas who travelled to America in 1888. William was born in Llandenny, Wales and Ellen in Joyford, Gloucestershire. They sailed on the 19 April 1888 and arrived in New York 10 days later but I do not know where they sailed from or the name of the ship. Ellen was born in 1866 and William in 1867. I'm afraid this is all the information I have.
Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi Gill
The passenger lists i have only start from 1890 unfortunately, i have searched for them anyway and possibly have them on a couple of other sailings.
I dont know if you are interested in knowing about any others or whether it was just this specific one.
Also the name of them is that Ellen Thomas and William Thomas (with a middle name of Llewellyn) or a double barralled surname?

Hi Ian
Could you check the 1861 census for me please for the family Scollon (or Scalron or similar). There might be an Ann born in Yorkshire in c 1835 but she might have been married by then. I don't think the name is very common. Her parents might have been born in Ireland. Sorry I have nothing else.

Hello Ian and thanks for your kind offer.
I am looking for my Uncle CHARLES PARSONS born Bradfield, Berks. 1913. I only know he was in WW2 in DCLI as a 1940 when he married in Birmingham to a Hilda Syner.
His Son Nicholas was born Birmingham 1942 at which time CHARLES was in the RAOC AS A Pte.
I have searched for months but have not found a death for either himself or his Son, I think , hopefully they are still alive tho' Charles would now be 93 and his Son 65.
I know they were still living in Warwickshire in 1950 but sadly have no more information on them.
I realise this is a longshot Ian but am desperate to find any of the family if at all possible.
Many thanks if you can help , Regards Lulli


Gillian Report 23 Aug 2007 09:26

Hello Ian
Thanks for looking. They definitely sailed in 1888 as I am still in contact with their family all across America. The Llewellyn part of the name was a middle name.

Hi Mary
This is strange!
I checked 1861 census for Scollon and came up with only the following.

Bridget Scollon abt 1806 Ireland city Durham
Elizabeth Scollon abt 1834 city, Leicestershire, England city Hertfordshire
John Scollon abt 1842 Ireland city Lancashire
Nicholas Scollon abt 1843 Ireland city Durham
Partrick Scollon abt 1840 Ireland city Lancashire
Patrick Scollon abt 1848 Ireland city Durham
Thomas Scollon abt 1845 Ireland city Durham

You will note that all the above are born Ireland however at the time of census they were in Lancashire or near there.

My search for Scalron came up with nothing.

I then looked on 1851, and it has there is a Ann Scollon abt 1835 and a John Scollon born abt 1832 both born Lancashire!!

I shall have another look for you.

I cannot find a death record for Nicholas Parsons either in view of this and his age i would assume he is still alive, unless he has died in the last 2 years.

Hi Ian, I know this is a long shot but, I'm looking for a MARY ELLEN MAGGS born Bristol 1903 who emigrated to Canada approximately 1920 ish. Now I don't know if she was married or not, not much help I know.

Thanks for the offer.




Familyfinder Report 23 Aug 2007 10:37

Hi Fairlyfatfairy

I have searched Kevin L Wright marriages after 1997, and only found the following ones.

WRIGHT, Kevin L, @ Alton 1998 November
WRIGHT, Kevin L @Colchester 2005 June
WRIGHT, Kevin L @ Depwade 2005 October

Do you know who he married or any further details at all.



Camille Report 23 Aug 2007 10:43

Many thanks again Ian , hope remains that I may still be able to find one of them. I will try to make contact with the Charles you found anyway.

ceri Report 23 Aug 2007 10:47

Hi Sarah and Fairly fat fairy i believe you to be asking about the same person, maybe contact each other, to swop info.

Hi Ever Maggs

I found her birth record.
Mary Ellen Maggs - Bristol - 1st Qtr 1903 - vol 6a page 234.

Marriage record
3rd Qtr 1922
Mary E Maggs/Joseph G Thomson @ Bristol, vol 6a page 98

I am having trouble finding her on the passenger lists for Canada, under her maiden name of Maggs or married name of Thomson! Do you know approximately when she died at all?
