Hi Lisa, No Frederick Wacey - perhaps it has been misspelt - whereabouts in the country was he born? Do you have a rough idea of where he should be in 1891 or any other names that could be with him? and I'll try again.

Hi Emma, I would be very grateful if you could look up William Henry Prosser, wife Ann, hopefully living in Pembrokeshire. Many thanks. Yvonne

Hi Yvonne, I hope this is your family they are indexed as Prasser. Not sure of Cora and Olive as correct names, one of the girls has been inserted onto the same line as the other and it's a bit messy.

Hi Emma, It is indeed my Prossers. Thank you so much, you have made my day! I can't find them anywhere on the 1901, so this is wonderful. Many thanks again. Yvonne

Lucy, You are an angel. That is the right family and you have shown me that there were more children than I originally thought. Many, many thanks. Allie.


Vanessa Report 18 Sep 2003 16:05

Lucy, this is brilliant. Thank you so much. Cannot believe that Matthew is still alive aged 87! The William I need is the one living with wife Anne. If you can spare some more time I should be very grateful for more details. I don't suppose there is a Louisa or Thomas born Dagenham? Many, many thanks.

Linda Report 18 Sep 2003 20:36

How do you find stuff for 1891 on Ancestry? I subscribed a couple of days ago have haven't managed to find that yet.


Emma Report 18 Sep 2003 21:13

Hi Linda, Did you subscribe to or I've subscribed to and find it really difficult to get to the pages I want, they just don't want to load! The only way I can get through is to click "census records" under the "historical records" section on the main page, then click "uk census collection" under the "more records" "census" section on the right hand side of the next page. That takes you to the 1891 census search box. Hope this helps.


Unknown Report 18 Sep 2003 21:57

Hi Lucy, I've been hitting my head against a brick wall tonight and thought I would have a rest and read some messages and there you are offering 1891 look ups!!!!!!! Hope you can help, perhaps I might sleep tonight without dreaming of dates etc.!!! I am looking for.........James Shaw born c1842 in 1881 he was living in Stafford, 39 years, in 1901 living with his daughter (clara Mathews) in Yorks. Thornaby on Tees, 62 years. He was married to Sarah nee Parkes c1844 was living in 1881 and was not in 1901. I would so love to find out where they were. Hope you can help, fingers crossed. Best wishes, Jo.


Emma Report 18 Sep 2003 22:01

Hi Joanne, Do you know where James was born as this will help a lot with the search.


Unknown Report 18 Sep 2003 22:07

Hi Lucy, James Shaw was born in Stafford I think. In 1881 census it says Lattwood, Worcester. BUT there is no Lattwood, maybe Ladywood. In 1901 cesus it says Dudley Stafford. Is that any help? Thanks, Jo.


Emma Report 18 Sep 2003 22:32

Hi!!!!!!!! Looks Like you have got it! I can't say how I feel!! The years and the children they have would be right and in the right place. Thankyou so much. Hope I will sleep tonight......but will you with all the names and dates going through your mind? I hope so. People always say "you will get your reward in heaven" but I hope you get yours earlier!! Thanks again, best wishes, Jo.
