Hi Mary,

Thanks for the information.

Much appreciated.



Christine Report 11 Dec 2007 20:47

Hello Mary, I wonder if you could help me. I am looking for my greatgrandfather, Charles Guy born approximately 1875 or thereabouts. He married a Daisy Kendall and they lived in Reigate, Surrey. My grandmother was born in 1901 Jessimine, she had a sister (not sure of names but I think they were Molly and Kay) also an older brother, Charles born around 1900. I have drawn blanks and would be most appreciative of any help you could give me. I believe my great-grandmother might have been born outside of the U.K.

Hi again Mary

Another kind person on Genes has found this for me. This is Alfred's parents Ester and George (only George appears to be called Alfred George) in 1871 census.

1871 England Census
about Alfred G How
Name: Alfred G How
Age: 36
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1835
Relation: Head
Spouse's Name: Ester
Gender: Male
Where born: Norwich, Norfolk, England

Civil Parish: North Shields
Ecclesiastical parish: Western Town
Town: North Shields
County/Island: Northumberland
Country: England

Street address: 31 Mudock? Street

Occupation: labourer in (iron?) works

Condition as to marriage: married

Disability: View Image

Registration district: Tynemouth
Sub-registration district: North Shields
ED, institution, or vessel: 7
Neighbors: View others on page
Household schedule number: 197
Household Members: Name Age
Alfred G How 36
Alfred G M How 6
Catharine How 8
Eliza How 12
Emma How 15
Ester How 34
Henry How 10

As you can see Alfred has a sister called Eliza so it looks as though it was him on the 1891 census. Still no closer to finding out what happened to Margaret and Eliza though.

Hi Christine
Sorry I have not been able to locate Charles and Daisy Guy on 1901 census(Ancestry version).
However I have found the birth reg numbers for both Charles(jnr) and Jessamine and as you can see they are not what you expected.

Jessamine Daisy M Guy Dec Qtr 1903 Reigate 2a 207


Charles Clarence Guy Dec Qtr 1904 Reigate 2a 202

I suggest you send for Jessamine's birth cert to see what additional info you can glean which may help to find parents at census time.

Hello Mary, I am having real problems finding my grandfather. hope you can help,here goes
Henry Thomas Chapman...born c.1877 died 1924
born in 'London' then moved to Hull (dont know when) married in 1910 to Daisy Newton and in Hull was a flower seller and had a grocers shop. His father is named on the marriage certificate as Thomas Chapman...bricklayer. family left to speak to only knows that Henry had a sister(no name) who died of TB.I have had 3 checks done at the GRO...Kensington, Blything and Woolwich, but not him....Can you help at all ???Please


Mary Report 12 Dec 2007 22:49

Hi Spruce
Do you have forenames for the Pocock folk???
A quick search shows 9 Pocock people living in Staffordshire on 1901.Do you want details of all of them?????



Mary Report 12 Dec 2007 23:20

Hi Michael John
The most certain way to discover the maiden name of Mary Ann Hodges is to purchase the birth cert for one of the children from GRO.
This is the birth registration for their 3rd child:

Herbert Harris Hodges Dec Qtr 1867 Islington 1b 199

and 1st child

Ann Elizabeth Hodges Dec Qtr 1863 Islington 1b 181

You could also look for their marriage on freebmd once you have her surname.
