London and Middlesex / 1841 Census Lookup - William Granger of Hackney
« on: Sunday 01 July 18 05:34 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to research a William Granger, origins and fate unknown, who married Eliza Hornage at Islington St John, Clerkenwell, on 2 Aug 1836 (both of this parish, witnesses Thomas Hornadge & Mrs Briscoe).

William & Eliza had two children:

Thomas Granger baptised 7 Mar 1838 Shoreditch St Leonard (father's abode Macclesfield Place, brewer's servant).

William Granger baptised 7 Jun 1840 Shoreditch St Leonard (father's abode Pleasant Row, servant).

By the time of the 1851 census William has disappeared and the rest of the family appear as follows at Newmarket Road, Brown's Yard, Cambridge St Andrew the Less, Cambridgeshire, as follows:

James Butler 39 head married labourer born Quy Cambridgeshire
Eliza Butler 32 wife married born Sheffield Yorkshire
Thomas Granger son-in-law 12 born London
William Granger son-in-law 10 born London
James Butler son 5 born Chesterton Cambridgeshire
Ann Butler daughter 3 born Cambridge
John Butler son ?4 born Cambridge

Sometime in the 1850s Eliza, Thomas and William migrate to Tasmania, Australia, as free settlers (I think on the Lord Dalhousie which went as a convict ship in 1852).

In 1866 William put an advertisement in Tasmanian newspapers as follows: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/161080340

"I hereby Caution all Clergymen against marrying my Mother— maiden name, Eliza Hornage, known as Eliza Butler, widow of James Butler deceased, her lawful husband, William Granger being yet alive."

I am trying to find William Senior, Eliza, Thomas or William Junior in the 1841 census, but so far without success.

Buckinghamshire / Re: Ridgway from Buckinghamshire, Madden from Roscommon

Many thanks to everyone again for the help on this thread a little while back. I now think I've probably uncovered a different Ridgway/Madden connection that fits the DNA evidence nicely (not the one Ciderdrinker mentioned) and I have a (deceased) candidate for my mum's dad. Just thought I'd note that here.

Also, I've done a bit of research on the Ridgways of Waddesdon if anyone is interested - very happy to share.

London and Middlesex / Electoral roll updating, 1930s London
« on: Saturday 03 March 18 06:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I am just wondering what the process for updating the electoral roll in London in the early 1930s was? I am looking at ordering a death registration for someone in the 1st quarter of 1933 but I see the same person on the London electoral roll of 1934 on Ancestry (for the last time that I see definitely). Is it possible I still have the right death registration to order even though the person was still on the roll until the next year?

Thanks Rosie, I will give that a go.

Yes it's quite possible he was cremated and I don't really know whether his family could afford a newspaper notice. His death certificate states that he died of (a) valvular disease of heart (b) hypostatic pneumonia. There is a note afterwards "No PM" and "Certified by D Ross LRCP".

I am looking for a burial record or newspaper death/funeral notice for a James Joseph Heath who died on 9 February 1932 at Southam Street in Kensington aged 33.

I have searched Deceased Online, Findmypast, Findagrave and Ancestry for a burial record and I have searched Findmypast, The Times Digital Archive and The Telegraph Historical Archive for a family notice, but without success.

Can anyone suggest any other places to search? I'm in Australia so I only have access to online resources.
