Found family in 1860 in Pennsylvania BUT he's shown as 'Henry' and - like in 1870 - he is shown as Blind.


Just for the sake of completeness the Minnie Morris shown at the beginning of this thread was, per her baptism, born 5th August 1894.   A tree on Ancestry shows she married an Abraham Coppelov in 1915 but that must be another Minnie as tree has her birth as 27th May 1895!

Minnie Morris b.5/8/1894 was still unmarried in 1939 and died unmarried in Mar.1974.


On the 1851 census it specifies 'St Phillips' - this must surely be St. Philip and Jacob, Bristol and from what I can find out it looks as if records for this church are only available on microfiche and held at Bristol Archives i.e. not available online.

However, you say you've searched these records already so not sure what else I can suggest.


Gloucestershire / Re: Jeremiah FIELD, born 1843 (Q1), Cheltenham

Widowed Ellen Field still in Cheltenham on 1861 census - has acquired another child Catherine bc.1853!

However, the 4 children (including Jeremiah) from 1851 census and Catherine ca.1853 do not appear to have had their births registered - all shown to be born in Cheltenham but no birth entries for any of them as 'Field' in Cheltenham.

From what has been posted already, the Jeremiah with the criminal record was the son of Arthur and Bridget not Ellen (he's shown in 1851 as Jeremy).

So which Jeremiah are you interested in - Ellen's son who appears to disappear after 1851 or Arthur and Bridget's who was a Bootmaker/Shoemaker, had criminal record 1870 and ended up in Guernsey.


Possible baptism for Elizabeth?

Elizabeth Meagher bp.20/2/1859 Boughton under Blean, Kent, dau. of James (Labourer) and Elizabeth.

Needless to say, can't find this family 1861/1871.


Trying to find a link here - there must be one!

A George Esenni Bardsley birth reg'd June.qtr.1880 Uckfield, Sussex - mmn Meager, baptised 12/9/1880 Oxted, son of George (a Navigator) and Elizabeth and buried 16/9/1880 Oxted.

George Bardsley married Elizabeth Meager June quarter 1879 Uckfield, Sussex

With 'Esenni', Meager, Oxted, and 'navigator' all involved here there must be a connection to Esenni Meager and presumably Elizabeth was his sister.

Haven't yet found George and Elizabeth Bardsley on 1881 census to establish where she was born.


Kent Lookup Requests / Re: Walter Crowhurst of Northfleet

Walter Crowhurst is certainly not the son of Richard and Emily, that's for sure.   They had 8 children all easily accounted for and not one was a Walter.

Can't say who he was, I'm afraid, but can tell you who he wasn't.

How did you find 5 children?

Sidney's will is on and it states 3 children: Sidney John Cooper, Alice Margaret Dell and Sible Creamer Penney (perhaps Frederick and Constance died).

I have a Worldwide subscription to Ancestry and first searched 'All Collections' for a Sidney Ernest Cooper and the 1890 marriage came up in New Zealand.   I then went onto the NZ BDM's site and searched for a death for an Almah Cooper and found it there.   Dozens of William Coopers but no idea which could be him. All it states is age and year and didn't know where in NZ it was.    Back to Ancestry to search for Almah Cooper and got the details giving date of death and where in NZ it was plus it states husband as William.   So then searched for William Cooper in Auckland too and found his death in 1904, same place, with wife shown as Almah.
