Not sure if this helps or not but the 1939 register was taken on the 29th September 1939.

Do you know who the two redacted people are? Or could they be related to Annie?

If he was the eldest child, was he born "a bit too soon" after his parents wedding?

My Great Aunt always claimed to be a year younger than she was for this reason. When official documents were needed (ie passport etc) the real age had to be used.

Thanks for looking. I think this is going to remain a brick wall for me, but I will keep pulling it out of the file every now and then and rechecking in case a "correction" appears somewhere.



London and Middlesex / Mary Ann Childs (nee Oram) Fresh eyes needed
« on: Tuesday 30 January 18 18:23 GMT (UK)  »

My GG Grandmother Mary Ann Oram (born c1837 in Oare Wilts) seems to disappear in the 1890s, presumably she died.

She married James Austin Childs 22nd Dec 1861.

I have her and her family in the 1871, 1881 and 1891 censuses. In 1901 she has gone and James is down as a widower. But I can't find a sensible death registration for her.

My guess is that she was in a hospital or workhouse when she died and the details weren't recorded correctly, but I'm hoping that fresh eyes may find something I've missed.

1891 - 50 Blackstock Road, Islington
James A Childs, Head, 50, Fancy Stationer, Southend Essex
Mary A Childs, Wife, 54, Wilts
Alfred Childs, Son, 24, Waiter, London
Katherine M Childs, Daughter, 17, Stationers Assistant, London
Percy Childs, Son, 13, Stationers Assistant, London

1901 - 32 Devonshire Road, Islington
James Austin Childs, Head, Widow, 60, Waiter Inn, Essex Southend
Alfred Childs, Son, 35, Waiter, London St Pancras
Katherine May Childs, Daughter, 27, Housekeeper Domestic, London St Pancras
Percy Childs, Son, 23, Clerk, London St Pancras

Any help would be appreciated.
