There are that many workhouse records for them it's hard to keep track, but there is a admission dated 20 Oct 1870 for Edward & the boys (transcribed as Iris) in the Cleveland Street Workhouse, Westminster:

Edward 38 discharged 3 Mar 1871 Own Request
John 14 discharged 29 Oct 1870 to Edmonton
Edward 9 discharged 3 Nov 1870 to Edmonton
William 9 discharged 29 Oct 1870 to Edmonton
Robert 6 discharged 1 Dec 1870 to Edmonton
James 1 1/2 discharged 3 Mar 1871 with Father

Hannah Ivis aged 35 and James Ivis aged 9 months were admitted to the same workhouse on 9 Aug 1869 and discharged on 14th Aug.   The age of 9 months would tie in with the James Ives birth you mentioned, registered December quarter 1868, mmn Clockus.   

An earlier admission (9 Apr 1868) is for the boys only, plus a 15 year old Hannah Ivis - presumably their sister.  This seems to be her birth registration:

IVISS, HANNAH   mmn CLOGHER 
GRO Reference: 1853  M Quarter in SAINT MARTIN IN THE FIELDS  Volume 01A  Page 269

In 1881 think James is in the Home for Working & Destitute Lads (Dr Barnardo's Home), Stepney Causeway, aged 10 & born Wylde Street, Covent Garden.

The Common Room / Re: Tithe Maps & Census comparison
« on: Wednesday 17 January 18 16:29 GMT (UK)  »
I've just been doing the very same thing using the tithe maps for Wales, which are freely available online. 

Fortunately the address I was searching was a row of houses in a semi-rural location with very little immediately surrounding them, and so easily identified on the tithe map.  I had also found reference to a lease document that said there were 16 houses in the row, which matched exactly with the 1841 & 1851 census.  Better still, I also found a photograph taken before they were demolished and was also able to identify the row on a map published in 1901, which confirmed their location in relation to some major landmarks that were present on both the tithe and the later map.  It wasn't 100% accurate, but close enough.

Durham / Re: One of my Snowballs is missing - Wolsingham

Thanks - its a long time since I looked at this line but my notes against William Jr had a reference to him possibly being in Sunderland so it looks like I was on the right track.  Your post is probably a timely reminder that I need to re-visit this family.

I have William Sr's death certificate if you want the details?

Looking at my notes I don't seem to have traced William Jr beyond his baptism - would you mind telling me who he married & when?

Hi Paul

I have his parents as William Snowball & Sarah Henderson, who married at Wolsingham on 21 Jun 1794.  I have that Sarah died 1807 and William then married Ann Heron the following year.

I think that my MP has far more important things to deal with than making my family history research easier.   :-\   

Mine too!  In fact I'd be pretty furious if I learned he was spending time trying to make my hobby easier when there are so many huge issues out there that he should be focusing on.

I have not been able to get the newspaper reports - Jomot, do you have a link to them, please?

Sorry, I cant provide a link as the newspapers are on a subscription site, but if you have a sub then just narrow down by the dates & newspapers I gave you & then type 'James Lamb' in the search field.

His death / burial record is on Ancestry under Liverpool, England, Catholic Burials - St Mary, Highfield Street.  Date of death given as 3 Dec 1866 in the hospital, aged 26.  The find a grave entry is 7 December at Anfield Cemetery, Roman Catholic section, so presumably the service was held at St Mary and the actual burial at the municipal cemetery.

Yes, my 3xG Grandmother, and also her mother-in-law.  Both died of cholera, and same day burial was to prevent it spreading.
