Title: Edith Bullock born 1893?
Post by: R Williams on Wednesday 03 January 18 21:56 GMT (UK)
I'm having no joy trying to find my Grandma Edith Bullock, supposedly born Yorks 1893 in the 1901 or 1911 census, even using her apparent siblings names brings no records?? Any ideas???

Hi R Williams, welcome to rootschat!

Do you have Edith's birth cert?  If so, are her parents named? 

What are her siblings names?

Welcome from me, too! ;D

Alternatively, do you have her marriage certificate?
Who does she name as her father on there?

Thanks for the welcome and thanks in advance for your help😁. No marriage cert either, but records say 1917 to Alfred Oliver Williams born 1890 Llantrisant, no parents mentioned!

I think you may have to bite the bullet and buy Edith and Alfred's marriage cert.

Did Edith remarry?  Looking at the 1939 index, there is an A O Williams, and wife Edith (birth date 15 Sept 1893) in Caerphilly U.D., Glamorganshire.

An Edith Pike with the same birth date dies in Surrey in 1979

Building on what has been found - Edith Bullock was baptised 11 Oct 1893 at St Silas, Gilcar, Sheffield.

Parents: Charles (a groom) and Clara, of 42 Hurst Rd.

(Details from www.sheffieldindexers.com).

Hi Giggsy, looks promising, Edith, Mabel, Ellen (nelly) are names I have. Dorothy and John Charles no. I will try the 1911 census tho Edith has not shown up there before, am I right in thinking this is from 1901 census?

You should be able to find Charles and Clara easily enough on the 1911 census.  I suspect that Edith is on the 1911 without a birth place, but still living in Ecclesall (don't think we can do look ups for the 1911 census)

Thanks also to Spidermonkey and avm228, this looks like the same Edith, but not on 1911. Also missing her sister Dorothy, who may appear as a domestic elsewhere (age is right on the entry I found).  1911 shows a brother Frank, William (poss), Mabel, but the others  ??? Also Ellen has gone though I am told there was a Nelly(Ellen), too young to be elsewhere?  I have no certificates , but yes she married my g father Alfred Oliver in 1917 Pontypridd.

I would also dearly love to find my G Grandpas father to enable further progress, his name is Daniel Williams b 1852-4 llantrisant, married Elizabeth (?) b 1856-8 Bath. Any good ideas ? Ive tried searching marriage and Banns , Glamorganshire and elsewhere. Tried significant events, births etc unless they married somewhere else, outside my searching dates.

Edith in 1911

The surname on the original is BULLOCK not BLOCK.

I would also dearly love to find my G Grandpas father to enable further progress, his name is Daniel Williams b 1852-4 llantrisant, married Elizabeth (?) b 1856-8 Bath.

You can find Elizabeth's maiden surname by searching for the children's births on the GRO indexes.  It is free but you need to register.

I assume this is the family...
