Thanks very much, Being a pain but was charles Drew definately 30! I have him as 30 on1901 census, Any luck with Rowlands, Sorry hope we are not spoiling your weekend, With all your help i'm going great guns. Pat


Emma Report 20 Sep 2003 12:34

Hi Pat, Not spoiling my weekend at all - using it as an excuse to get out of decorating!! Charles Drew is definitely 30 - there is another Charles Drew 39 born East Winch but he's married to Mary Ann with a daughter Nellie living North Lynn. Also a Charles Drew with wife Charlotte and son Walter. I'll have another go at Rowlands now.


Emma Report 20 Sep 2003 13:00

Pat, Cannot find your Rowlands anywhere. Have tried soundex, looked in England and a multitude of combinations. There was only one Rowland or similar born Devon in Swansea and that was Elizabeth Rowlands husband James. Do you have any ages or children's names that might be with them?


Patricia Report 20 Sep 2003 13:13

Hello again, What I have is George Rowland aged 61 b. Bristol, Jane b. ilfracombe, Mary,Anne and some others. There address is 31 Orange Street, Swansea, I've seen them on Micro fiche but can't read it. I know the feeling about the decorating I should be doing some, but thought I'd check on here for a few minutes but it turns into hours, Thanks again for all your help. Hope you will be able to find them!! Pat

Hi Lucy, Thanks for your help in finding Edward Ralph. Have you had a chance to look for William (John) Lindon? He would be about 32, may have been born in Liverpool but I don't know. He was a seaman so could have been anywhere at the time of the census. Lilian


Emma Report 20 Sep 2003 13:46

Lilian, Nothing so far for William Lindon. Would he have been married or single?


Emma Report 20 Sep 2003 14:13

Patricia, Have found them at last! They are indexed as Rowlan (why that didn't come up on a soundex I don't know). It is definitely not Rowlands on the schedule either but trust me this has got to be one of the worst handwritings in the world. As far as I can make out the details are: RG12/4477 Folio 89 page 21 Swansea 31 Orange Street George Rowlan, head, 61, sailmaker, Somerset Bristol Jane Rowlan, wife, 49, horsekeeper, Ilfracombe Mary Rowlan, daur, sing, 20, dressmaker?, Swansea Flossie Rowlan, daur, sing, 17, Swansea Anne Rowlan, daur, sing, 15, Swansea Georgina? Davies, g/daur, 3, at school, Swansea Thomas Hughes, lodger, wid, 58, basket maker, ? William H ?, lodger, 34, sugar boiler, London David Richards, lodger, 19, basket maker, If you'd like I can save the schedule as an image and email it to you.

Hi Lucy, William John Lindon was married in 1882 but his wife remarried 28th March 1891. As I haven't found William's death in the St Cath's indexes, I was hoping you would be able to find him alive and well living somewhere else! It's a bit of a mystery. Can you find any William Lindon's aged about 32 living anywhere? Lilian


Emma Report 20 Sep 2003 23:57

Hi Lilian, There are only a few William Lindon (+variations) in the country about the right age. I've taken a look at them all and no luck I'm afraid. The two most likely are William A Linden, 31, Shipbroker, b. Liverpool and living in London and William J Lindon, 29, head, born and living in Coventry. However, the Coventry schedule for William is absolutely unreadable. I would assume this has happened when they've scanned it - you could try and find someone with the 1891 census on disk if you think it will help but I think you may be correct in assuming William is deceased in 1891.

Hi Lucy, I'd be very grateful if you could have a look for the following: Charles George PARRISH aged about 28 Lizzie PARRISH (wife) aged 24 Charles Cyril PARRISH (son) aged 3 Possibly in Reading, BKS or maybe around London. Could even be with CGP's parents: Thomas PARRISH 67 Sarah PARRISH 70 Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Nigel Fairbairn


Emma Report 21 Sep 2003 00:15

Hi Nigel, Think this is them: Piece RG12/122, Folio 5, Page 3 1 Burton? Crescent Charles G Parrish, head, mar, 29, butcher, Marylebone London Lizzie Parrish, wife, mar, 22, Bloomsbury London Charles C Parrish, son, sing, 3, Reading Berkshire

Hi Lucy, Thanks for the PARRISH lookup. Whereabouts was Burton Crescent? Much appreciated, Nigel

Hi Lucy Just wondered did you manage to find Robert Currie Allan and his family and would it be possible to tell me the address you found the Roae & James Bradburns at in Hulme Manchester. How the decorating going I hope well. With somebody else doing it Thanks Lorna


Patricia Report 21 Sep 2003 09:44

Good Morning Lucy. Thank you so much for all you have done, yes please I would like to see the image, Now i am wondering if the Gladys Davies you found for me with her parents is a sister to Georgina who is with the Rowland, something else for me to search now. Hows the decorating? Pat
