Hello Mary

Could you look up Scotland Census 1891 and 1901 please, for:

James Dick and family
in Monquhitter, Aberdeen

Expect wife to be called Margaret, but not certain if she was still alive by then. If no James turning up with wife Margaret, could you check for a James with son James born c1884.

Thanks in hope.

That looks great, Mary, thanks. I know James born 1884 had the middle name Alexander, so matches with the middle A in your find, and he was a tailor in Canada, so matches with the 1901 occupation. Guess James seniors first wife, Margaret, died and that he remarried before the 1901 Census. Lots of avenues to check now. Many thanks.

Hi Jeannie
Sorry he really is a mystery.
I have checked both Ancestry and findmypast for 1891 and drawn a total blank.
I think he must be in the Tardis!!!



Mary Report 13 Mar 2008 23:19

Hi Patricia
I cannot find anything on the Leigh family.No BMD info and nothing on any census.
Very strange
How do you know thye dates you gave me???
I would have expected toat least find the death of the mother as you could not be buried without a death cert.

This could well be the brother of my Elizabeth Chapman 1831

Is it possible to find the family before this to tie Edwin and Elizabeth together??


Mary Report 13 Mar 2008 23:59

Hi Mary,
Many thanks for the lookup.


Frances Report 14 Mar 2008 09:16

Hi Mary,
I have had various census for the Wyatt family which give slightly conflicting detail.
The family as I believe them to be are :-
James Wyatt 1802 Dorset
Harriett 1801 Suffolk
James William 1824 Holborn Middx (IGI)
Matilda 1827 Holborn Middx (IGI)
Amelia 1829 ?
Eliza 1832 St Luke Middx
Frederick 1835 Hackney Middx
Louisa 1839 Hackney Middx
Albert 1840 Hackney Middx (or Alfred Layton Essex)
Emma 1846 Wanstead Essex

In 1851 they are in Wanstead

The 1851 suggests James 1802 was born Bermesterd Dorset but I have an IGI entry for a christening in 1803 at Blandford Forum.
Does your eagle eye support any of the above please?

Many thanks,

p.s. I have now realized that Albert and Alfred are two different boys - perhaps Albert died as he doesn't show up in 1851
Alfred was born in Jun Qtr 1843 West Ham, which would include Leyton/Wanstead

Hi Lisa
Sorry no sign of a death for John Shadlock in 1940,41 or 42 in Lincoln.

1901 Cottage,Caenby,Lincolnshire
James Mansfield Head 30 Shepherd/Stockman b Needingworth,Huntingdonshire
Annie Mansfield Wife 27 b Osgadby,Lincs
Hubert Mansfield Son 2 b Glentham,Lincs
Charles Mansfield Son 4mths b Caenby,Lincs

Hope this is the right one.

Hi Sheila
Sorry I cannot find Edwin and Elizabeth Chapman together on any census.



Jo Report 14 Mar 2008 10:30

Hi Mary. Thank you for the kind offer. I am looking for a John Carney, B ireland c1847. He was perhaps living in Malton Rillington. His father was William Carney and I think his mother was mary or margaret. Does census info usually give place of birth? I am still learning! Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thankyou very much, Jo


Mary Report 14 Mar 2008 11:21

Hi Frances
Have had a look at the images for Wyatt family and yes there are anomolies,not helped by the fact that 1841 census is virtually illegible.I cannot read James's occupation and they all give their birth county as Middlesex,but may help to clear up some things.

1841 College Street,St John Hackney,Middx
James Wyatt 40 Occupation cannot be read
Harriet Wyatt 40
James Wyatt 17
Matilda Wyatt 14
Amelia Wyatt 12
Eliza Wyatt 9
Frederick Wyatt 6
Louisa Wyatt 3
Albert Wyatt 6mths
All are shown born Middlesex

1851 Nightingale Place Wanstead,Essex
James Wyatt Head Beer shop keeper b Beaminster,Dorset
Harriet Wyatt Wife 49 b Suffolk
Eliza Wyatt Daur 20 b St Lukes,Middx
Louisa Wyatt Daur 12 Scholar b Hackney,Middx
Albert Wyatt Son 11 Scholarb Hackney
Alfred Wyatt Son 7 b Leyton,Essex
Emma Wyatt Daur 5 b Wanstead,Essex

As far as I know there is no such place in Dorset as shown on the transcription which you have.
In my opinion the birthplace for James snr should be Beaminster,Dorset.

This shows the importance of looking at the images and not just copying the transcription for a lookup.
The Ancestry transcriptions are full of errors,particularly with regard to place names.
When I do lookups I aways look at the image,it is so much more accurate than relying on a transcription.

You should treat all info on the IGI with caution as this too is littered with errors.
I would advise you to try to get the birth details for James Wyatt from Parish records for Beaminster(if they exist)

Hope this info will help



Frances Report 14 Mar 2008 11:36

Hi Mary,
Thank you so much for what you have found in the original images - even that Albert is still alive!!
I wiil take a look at Beaminster - at least that definitely rules out Blandford Forum.
Thank you again,
