Please no blanket searches for BMDs.
Please give all the info you already have,especially dates of birth and birthplaces(if known) even the County would be good.

Looking forward to helping you.

Hi Mary

Looking for Alfred How born abt 1865 or his father George How born abt 1831 (both in Norwich, Norfolk). I found them on the 1901 census living in South Shields but haven't yet managed to find their births or any other info.

Very grateful for your kind offer.

Hi Candice
Sorry I have not been able to find your Munden family on the 1871 census.



Mary Report 8 Dec 2007 18:41

Hi Julie

I found this for Alfred How on 1891 census,but could not locate his father George.

1891 Edith Street,Westhoe,South Shields
Alfred How Head 27 Paraffin oil merchant b Norwich
Margaret How Wife 25 b South Shields
Eliza How Daur 4 b South Shields

I have not found a birth for Alfred and you will need to look at Parish Records for the birth of George as he was born prior to the start of registrations in 1837.

Hope this info is of use.



Mary Report 8 Dec 2007 18:52

Hi Sheila
Sorry,but from the info you supplied I have not been able to find your William and Sarah Smith.

Thanks Mary for your help


Julie Report 9 Dec 2007 14:24

Thanks Mary.

It looks as though Alfred was married twice because on 1901 census his wife is Isabella and there is no sign of Eliza. If it is not too much trouble please could you look for deaths of Margaret and Eliza.


Mary Report 9 Dec 2007 18:23

Hi Julie
Looks as if you may have a real mystery here.
I cannot find deaths for either Margaret or Eliza How,also I cannot find a birth reg for Eliza How in County Durham(census says she was born in S Shields).
Found a marriage for :
Alfred George W How June Qtr 1886 South Shields 10a 875.Unfortunately the name of bride is not shown,so you will have to send for cert to get the name.
There is a birth reg for:
John Hall How March 1894 S Shields 10a 731.This is son of Alfred and Isabella.

Good luck if you need more help get back to me,looks as if it may be interesting!!!

Hi Mary

Thank you for your help.

Very strange... i will have to order the marriage cert after xmas. Got a few others to get as well.

I know there is a connection to Norwich, Norfolk as both Alfred and his father are listed in 1901 census as being born there as is one of Alfred and Isabella's sons.
