any chance you could have alook to see if you can find a death for a jane and thomas humphries /humphrey lat found in 1851

thank you

Hi Samantha
The only Francis death that fits those dates is

Francis Watts born c. 1870
died 1904 Jan qtr Williton, Somerset
Vol 5c page 203

re Tony Vaughan Jones...which area ? any idea?
I have searched the Commonwealth wargraves site in case he was killed in WW1, but no sign of him.


Samantha Report 23 Oct 2007 19:25

Hi Sheila other details other than what I have. My guess is that Jones was billeted in Brighton as a serving soldier, maybe awaiting shipping out to France.

I do know that by 1928 my grandmother [Enid Watts] was not with him, but pregnant with my Dad and with a man named Stephen Reginald Griffiths.

thankyou for trying any how.

Hi Sheila,
Thanks for the offer is possible for you to look for the birth of Margaret Bond for me.Her parents were Arthur and Florence Bond(nee Tilbury). I think somewhere between 1912&1928 in the Hampshire area.
Thanks David

Hiya Sheila,
Please could you try to find my Grandmas marriage. She was AMY SHAW and married ALBERT EDWARD PEACOCK. Not sure what year, she was born in 1899 and their 1st child was born in 1921/22 ALICE PEACOCK. Probably in Yorkshire, But I am learning not to take anything for granted!!! Also couldn't find either of them on the 1901 census.


Katherine Report 24 Oct 2007 13:30

Hi Sheila,

Thanks for info this could be her and yes i would be gratefull to you if you could look up after 1851



Helen Report 24 Oct 2007 13:32
