The Common Room / Re: Looking for a Somerset Watchmaker

The British Library have this book listed in their catalogue.  I'm not sure if this means that they actually have the book or not.

Perhaps you would like to consider contacting them and asking about it:-

Not sure it will help but have you thought about contacting The Worshipful Company of Clockmakers?

Below is their contact page

Check out the information on it first before deciding whether you wish to contact them.

Census and Resource Discussion / Re: 1939 - Errors, etc?

There will more than likely be errors.  With regard to your mum it could be that there was someone else with exactly the same name and birth date who did die and she has been confused with your mother.

Re your aunt, this again could be a copying error.  The enumerator may have been distracted when copying the details into the book and his/her eye slipped to the wrong line.

The record is only as good as the person writing the details down. 

I shouldn't worry too much about it.  All census records will contain errors and you just have to accept it and know from personal knowledge or research what is correct.

I see that it is on the right hand side of the book.  This was used by the NHS for their purposes.  It may well be his NHS number.

I've found what looks like Jane in 1871 with her parents Robert and Elizabeth Dunbar.  Jane has two children with her Elizabeth B born 1869 and John born 1870.

Hubby is not with her for some reason.

Address is Back Ramble, Alves, Moray, Scotland

Have you tried searching any Australia records to see if John shows up at all?

Family stories are not always accurate.  John may have gone abroad but not necessarily to Australia.

This looks like Diana's death

Deaths Dec 1837   
Ballinger    Dianna        Ross    26   145

For some reason this is not on the GRO website.  Either missed off or mistranscribed in some way.

She was buried at Goodrich on 1st November 1837 age 45.
