Can do 1891 census lookups if anyone's interested. Emma.

Hi Lucy. Can you see if there is a Gerrard or Winstanley family at 48 or 50 John St in Pendleton, Salford please. They keep moving up and down the street but they were at those addresses in 1861 and 1881. Cheers, Mel.


Emma Report 16 Sep 2003 22:47

Hi, Can't do address searches I'm afraid - do you have a forename I can search for? Emma.


Melba64 Report 16 Sep 2003 22:51

Try Richard or Martha Gerrard and Israel Winstanley. Thanks. Mel

Thanks Lucy. I think this is Israel's eldest son. You might not find Richard and Martha as she was quite old in 1871 and I couldn't read his age in 1861 census. Haven't found him in any of the others. I know they had a son Richard too so he might turn up. They also had a daughter Martha married to Henry Moore and Martha had a son William Gerrard. I can't remember any of the other family names at the moment. It is getting a bit late for my brain to be that good. Thanks for the help. Mel


Melba64 Report 16 Sep 2003 23:07

Sorry. Just realised, it's Emma isn't it. Told you my brain isn't focussed. Mel

Thanks again Emma. You're a star. Mel


Melba64 Report 16 Sep 2003 23:20

Richard and Martha could both be dead by 1891. Thanks for the other information though. It's great. I really appreciate you taking the time and effort to do this. Take care. Mel

Hiya Any chance you could look for any clerihews .. there shouldn't be many. They have disappeared off the face of the earth. If you need first names then I am looking for William John. Isabel Mathilda (or somthing like that) and John and Mary. Where did they go? They were living in Gibraltar in 1881. Puzzled of Cardiff
