Looks like he was actually Francis. Joan's maiden name was Bush.

I see 6 births to the couple. Are you looking for the other 2 as well?

All these people have middle initials.

Look for the births here:

and then check electoral rolls here:

This member has now requested access to my tree - no idea why

Some feedback on the boards would be more useful


ArgyllGran Report 19 Jul 2020 15:25

I've sent another PM today (I know Erika sent one a few weeks ago) , advising against starting any more threads re this family, and requesting a reply on any one of the existing threads.

The poster doesn’t seem to have checked how the site works


Michael Report 19 Jul 2020 17:23

Thank you everyone for research .I did not know how this all worked, now that I have retired I will have more time to read everything, and get more savy with this computer business like spellcheck. Please be patient with a worn out Chef

Glad you've found your way back, Michael!

From FreeBMD, we were able to work out that your cousins were born in these years;
Christine M 1946, Christopher F 1947, Valerie J 1949, Simon F1955.

There are two other McEvoy/Bush births, but we don't know if they're your cousins too, or not, because you didn't give us any more names:
Anthony D 1951, and Sheila A M 1958.

Trying to track them later can only be through marriages, deaths, or Electoral Rolls.
Did you try the Electoral Rolls as advised on one of your threads?

Take Valerie, for instance.
There's the marriage of a Valerie J McEvoy to a Geoffrey Stewart in 1967 in Yorkshire - but you would have to buy a copy of the marriage cert to see the details, before you could know if that was the same person or not.
There are several Valerie J Stewarts on the ERs, but none of them has a Geoffrey listed with her.
It's also possible that your Valerie might have married without her middle initial showing on the record - which means there a lot more possibilities..
Impossible to pick out the right one without more info.

Do you know what any of your cousins' middle names are?
When did you last have contact with them, and where?
Do you know if they married, and if so, to whom?
Is it possible they emigrated?

I don't see the marriage or death of any Christopher F McEvoy in England, Wales, or Scotland. But the same applies - records might not show his middle initial.
There are lots of Christopher McEvoys on the ERs, but again without information about who he might be listed with, or which county he might be living in, it's impossible to pinpoint the right person.

The same goes for Simon - no marriage, lots of people of that name on the ERs.

You said that Christine had died. Do you know where or when?
Had she married? Did she have children?

Any bit of information might be a useful clue for us.

But do be mindful of data protection rules, as, apart from Christine, they are (hopefully) still living.

PM from Michael:

Thank you so much. Will have to study all this information when I get the chance.. and will get back to you. Thanks Michael


Michael Report 20 Jul 2020 11:11

Thank you for all the information about my family
I did not know that Joan was Bush most helpful.

I have only met one cousin Christine who worked as a nurse in Newcastle upon Tyne
General Hospital (she nursed my Mother when she died in 1971)
Christine was married to a Airman in the RAF but I don't know his name.

I don`t ever remember meeting any of my cousins to Francis and Joan.
I remember meeting Francis at Grandmothers funeral in 1970
Was told by my Brothers that Joan was a Jehovah`s Witness and nobody
had any connection with them because our Family were staunch RC

The youngest of the Mcevoy/Bush children seems to have married in 1985

In view of the location of that event, this could possibly be Christine's marriage

However, I can't see a death

hi ErikaH

Thank you for all the work.
My Parents were James Patrick McEvoy and Mary Ann McEvoy nee Malia
Regarding 1939 my Sister Mary was evacuated to Carlisle for a few months
could this be her?
James Patrick McCarthy was my grandfather

Regards McEvoy/Bush. This is my Cousin Christine who married a Airman in the R
AF. My brother thinks she died while posted in Germany


ErikaH Report 20 Jul 2020 15:59

1939 Register info in Carlisle is clearly your mother and sister

The closed record could be one of the three boys born before 1939
