Thank you what a sad story .. his common law  wife Narg Ann Fitzgerald apparently died in 1858. . Is it possible the two daughters Emma who was born  1838 and Esther 1841 would have been working  so would not have been admitted .. Trying to reconcile this miserable life they must have had .

Thank you. Is there a way of finding out the circumstances for these admissions? They

I have found via that two of my ancestors were admitted to a work house in 1856 aged 12 and 10
would there be any reports available on  their circumstances.

Arthur Keyte  1844 and Robert Keyte 1846

Arthur was also admitted on an earlier occasion with two other siblings in the 1840s .

Is it likely that William and Samuel were born in London..

Father Samuel born in London.

How did William Keyte arrive in Arley from London.

His marriage was witnessed by Viscount Valencia Lord George Lyytleonís son in Law living at Arley Hall at Over Arley Church . Is that a likely reason he cane from London to marry a local Anne Phillips .. who was she ?

Hi I am looking to add to some information I have on William Keyte burial in 1788 at ST Botolph Aldgate.  He was recorded as a Gent at his marriage by licence to Anne Phillips in Arley then Staffordshire now vWorcestershire in 1771.   He had two children christened at Arlen Church. Maybe there were more but it seems the family had business in 15 Minories City of London.  Are there death certificates for this period . Are there business directories for this period too.  He was a Tallow Chandler and his son Arthur succeeded him in the business as an Apprentice within The Guild of Tallow Chandlers

Thank you...

Josey. Thank you all data very welcome

AVM.   Yes I am trying to find out what happened to Percival Parkinson once he left his family. Did he return to England ? 
I am guessing Merle Esme stayed with her son Austin Parkinson in India .. I believe Neil the eldest son went to a Boarding School. 

No trace of Percival . A complete mystery .

Thank you everyone who has provided me with new information .

This revolves around a grandmother who was born married in India and who had 3 children.
The family story is that her husband  left India l and never returned .

We have not been able to find either man or woman.

How do I find them.   I know records are difficult in India

I understand the wife and mother remained in India.  Her sisters travelled but no record of her on passenger lists

There are no baptism records for the 3 children .   Neil, Austin,  Jessica 

Neil Douglas Warren Parkinson  joined the Navy. He was born in 1922/24. Followed by Austin and Jessic believed to have died at birth.  The the father Percival St John  Jarvis Parkinson left

He married Merle Esme Guise in 1921   Her birth year was 1902. There is a family photo.
This was Percival Parkinsonís 2nd marriage .

Neil is now dead and there is no one to ask for further details about his parents or brother despite a lot of searching .

Guidance would helpful. I have searched ancestry . Co uk and find my past  website

My ancestor was baptised later in life to join the Navy in 1944 at Fort William
