Hi Mary, I would appreciate some help with getting started. I'm a total novice.
I'm looking for information about my grandparents.

Alexander Watson Cramb born in Buckland, Southampton in 1881. Father William Roberstson Cramb and Mother Margaret Cramb, nee Tosh and

Emily Cramb nee Duncan born in Perthshire in 1884.
Father John Duncan and mother Elizabeth Duncan nee Coutts.
Thank you in anticipation.


Mary Report 13 Jan 2008 17:03

Hi Kate
Having problems with your Cramb folks,I cannot find Alexander W Cramb on a census before 1901.
His birth is registered as follows:
Alexander Watson Cramb Dec Qtr 1881 Portsea 2b 456.
This is not Southampton as you stated,but a part of Portsmouth.
I cannot find hhim or his parents on a search of 1881 or 1891 census.I would suggest that you send for a copy of his birth cert which will give an address and I can try to find the family on an address search.
However I have found this entry which is rather odd on the Scottish census for 1901.

42 Longcausway,Perth,Perthshire
Thomas Tosh Head 77 Retired Railmay pointsman b Curnbee,E Fife
Margaret Tosh Daughter 54 marital status not shown Housekeeper b NB Perth
Jannes Ower Cramb Gdaur 25 formerly drapers assistant b London
Alexander W Cramb Gson 19 Clerk solicitors office b Portsmouth
William T Cramb Gson 15 Message boy b Portsmouth
Margaret O Cramb 12 Scholar b Portsmouth

No problems with the Duncan family

1891 35 Scott St,Perth
John Duncan Head 36 b Methven,Perthshire
Elizabeth Duncan Wife 37 b Scone,Perthshire
Christina L Duncan Daur 11 Scholar b Perth
Emily Duncan 6 Scholar b Perth
Elizabeth A Duncan Daur 1 b Perth

1901 3 George Inn Lane, Perth St Pauls.
John Duncan Head 46 Lace dyer
Eliza Duncan Wife 41
Christina Duncan Daur 21 Muslin ironer
Emily Duncan Daur 16 Curtain ironer
Catherine Duncan Daur 8 Scholar b Perth
Andrew Duncan Son 6 Scholar b Perth
John Coutts Nephew 3 b Perth

Looks as if your Cramb family may be a difficult lot to trace.

Hope this info will get you going.



Ben Report 13 Jan 2008 17:53

Hi i'm trying to attempt to find
William Watkiss 1867 (or Watkis) and Caroline Watkiss 1870, can you help me find their Marriage certificate? their first child was born c1892 so anywhere between 1888-1892, and it will be either Wellington, Shropshire or Tyldesley, Lancs.
I could do with knowing Caroline's maiden name.


Mary Report 13 Jan 2008 19:08

Hi Ben
Found on Freebmd!!!Always check out this site first.

William Watkiss/Caroline Jones Dec Qtr 1891 Wellington,Sh 6a 1530.



HelenBrissie Report 13 Jan 2008 20:37

Hi Mary

Re Gerrard images have pm'd you with my address.

Many thanks


Ben Report 13 Jan 2008 21:45

Am trying to trace marriages of Harold Evans c1850 and Mary Turner c1850.
Married around 1875-80.
Daughter Lillian, son Harold.

Alf Kendrick c1860 and Mary Potts c1860 (or just Mary, uncertain of her surname) around 1880s Manchester/yorkshire.


Kathryn Report 13 Jan 2008 22:33

Thank you Mary, I'm very grateful to you for your efforts on my behalf.

I have found my grandfathers original birth certificate which gives no details other than his date of birth but I also have a copy dated 1910 which he obviously needed to post his wedding banns. It states that he was born on 9th October 1881 at 51 Baliol Road Buckland in the sub-district of Kingston in the County of Southampton. The Certificate says it is from book 77, page 92, entry no. 458 in the Registrars District of Portsmouth.
It also gives the names of his parents.
I will now go and put all this info in my family tree. Thanks again for your help.


HelenBrissie Report 14 Jan 2008 06:15

Hi Mary,

Could I possibly have one more lookup please.

1901 Staffordshire Census

Annie F Gerard born abt 1879, Leek, Staffordshire

Would be interested in finding out about other household members, if that is not to much trouble please.

Once again many thanks for all your help.

bye for now


Dorothy Report 14 Jan 2008 09:00

Hi Mary

I need your help again please... 1901 census for Hoby Watson b 1870 married to Julia Wallis b 1874. They married in Wood Green North London, Had a son in 1902 but wondering if they had other children.
Kind Regards Dorothy.


Marilyn Report 14 Jan 2008 11:14

Hello Mary,Could you look for a Frederick John Allard Born 1879 Shoreditch London Middlesex in the 1881 census for me please.
Thank you Marilyn


Mary Report 14 Jan 2008 15:03

Hi Ginnie1
The chances of finding anything on John Pearce apart from his birth and death are fairly remote since both events are outside the period covered by available census info.
Do you know when his parents married??? and where??
Have you checked BMD records for John's birth and death??
A check of births for John Pearce on Freebmd shows several possibles between 1908 and 1910 in Derbyshire,these you can view for yourself.

Sorry I am not able to help further.



Mary Report 14 Jan 2008 15:08

A location for the possible marriage of Evans/Turner would help considerably,names of children without year of birth is not helpful
Have you checked Freebmd?????

Possible marriage for Alfred Kendrick found on Freebmd;
Alfred Kendrick June Qtr 1889 Prestwich 8d 572 there are two possible brides called Mary.
When and where was their first child born???
