Lancashire Lookup Requests / Thomas Perry
« on: Tuesday 06 February 18 21:33 GMT (UK)  »
Can someone find out for me who in 1939 was living in Charnwood, Blackpool C.B. Lancs.
I have been to the FindMyPast website and been into the 1939 register and got this:

Thomas Perry b. 1873. tailor married.....schedule 192  sub number 4

Nellie Pearson b. 1888. Tailoress married.......Sch. 192  sub No 1

This Nellie was the one who was my grt grandfathers mistress  (Thomas). By 1939 Thomas's wife had left him and was in NZ. but they remained married, that was true.
Nellie was not married to any of the men she lived with in between Thomas, so that was a fib.

Were they pretending to be married to each other??

This record states there were two others who were closed records. I suspect it was their two children, Mary and Stanley. Yes I could get the records opened but it is such a rigmaroll so was hoping someone might know where to look and find out for me which of course would be greatly appreciated. The address was 144 Midgeland Rd, Blackpool. I am looking for the full household.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Stanley Perry Chapman- GRO numbers required
« on: Friday 22 December 17 23:45 GMT (UK)  »
 :'(Hi all,
I am trying to get the death details. I have the death registration details which are not good enough for the GRO people. I am looking for a person who maybe able to look quicker than me for the numbers. As I said I have the vol. and page numbers. The registration details are as follows: (from family search)

Stanley Perry Chapman, 1st qrt of 1995, Liverpool Lancs. Under "event place" which I take to mean where he died is Liverpool, Lancs. It says his birth date is 22nd Oct. 1922. His mothers nee name was Woollen. She had several men in her life apart from Stanley's father who was Thomas Perry.  One was a chap called Mr Chapman. As you can see Stanley took both names. I haven't been able to find a birth or marriage for Stanley (I think his wife's name may have been Mary).
Stanley had a sister also named Mary Rose who was born 1929..

All help really much appreciated.

Lancashire / Fernando Burns
« on: Thursday 11 May 17 04:19 BST (UK)  »

I have a George Burns born 19th Oct. 1770 St Cuthbert, Kirkby, Ireleth, Lancs. He had two other siblings named Frank and Edward b. 1775 and 1778.

 I cannot find anything after 1778 or before on Ferdinando Burns, where he was born or where he came from, marriage or even death.The place never changed until around 1920 for George who went to sea at the age of 13/14.

Ferdinando and Eleanor Burns were his parents. I can find nothing on Ferdinando Burns re a birth, marriage or death. Am I right in thinking he may have come from another country. If I found something with a name of Fardy would that be short for ferdinando. Any and all help very much appreciated. Thank you

Europe / birth details wanted - France after 1838
« on: Thursday 11 May 17 04:02 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for someone who might do a lookup for me of two births in france from 1838. The names of the parents were:

Charles Barnet Burns (or just Barnet Burns)

Anne Melanie Boval

These two people were married I thought in the 7th arrondissement on the 22nd Sept. 1838. They lived at 16 Rue Pastourelle, 3rd Arrondissement. I am led to believe that these two people had two children who died young. I am looking for information on these two children re their births and anything else someone may find.
Any and all help very much appreciated. Thank you


Cumberland / Shipping in Whitehaven Cumberland 1700's
« on: Sunday 01 November 15 21:23 GMT (UK)  »
 :D Hello,
It has been a long while since I was here, however I desperately need help with my "brickwall". For many years I have worked on this to no avail so am hoping I am in the right place asking the right question.
I have a MUNGO PERRY (not shouted) who was a mariner in the 1700's in whitehaven. All I have is a death date of 15th May 1778 in Whitehaven. Mungo (spelt many ways as was his surname) was married to a JANE ? and they had six children between 1733-1747, all born Workington St Micheal. Jane died 2nd April 1781 aged 78 and was described as "widow of Mungo Perry mariner".
I cannot find anything on him except for the above. I did find him once in a census staying at a type of boarding house (possibly for seamen) with his name only.
Where did he come from, what type of mariner was he, where did he marry, so many questions with no answers. I would be very very appreciative if anyone can help at all. Thank you (fingers crossed)

I thought I had posted a message on this forum but cant see it so am trying again. I am looking for a lookup in parish records in Wigan for the following people please.

Thomas Anderton marries Sarah Orrell, 4th May 1727 in Wigan. In the marriage record I have (family search) it states for birthplaces   "of Billinge". These two people had two children:

John b. 4th April 1731 in Billinge
James b. 27th Oct 1728 i Billinge.

John married Mary Wood 5th Oct. 1756 in Winwick.

Back to Thomas and Sarah. I am looking for any information on these two but mainly when they were born and parents. Any and all help very much appreciated. Thank you :-*


Lancashire Lookup Requests / Parish Registers for Wigan 1580-1900
« on: Tuesday 07 June 11 04:05 BST (UK)  »

I hope Im doing this correctly. I am looking for a lookup in the above parish records to see if there is anything at all more than I already have in the original transcript.

The source film number is 1885673.

The marriage I have is :

Thomas Anderton marries Sarah Orrell both of Billinge. 4th May 1727 in Wigan. I have been told that Orrell may not be her maiden surname but where she came from even though it says for her birthplace "of Billinge". Thomas and Sarah had only two children, John b. 1731 and James b. 1728. I am also told thomas and sarah may have died young hence no more children. There are many reasons why they only had two children. Any and all help re my lookup request very much appreciated. Thank you


New Zealand Completed Requests / Lookup
« on: Tuesday 07 June 11 03:40 BST (UK)  »
Hello List,

My request is for a kind person who may have or visits a family history centre regularly. I am looking for a lookup if possible not in NZ but in England. I am looking at ordering a film through my centre but if there is a chance there is another centre who already has this film or the same that can be checked I would be very appreciative if someone can do it me. Following is what I am looking for.

MARRIAGE:   Thomas Anderton marries Sarah ? 4th May 1727 in Wigan, Lancs. They were both of Billinge. Beside Sarah's name is the word Orrell. I have been told this may or may not be her surname but where she came from. They had two sons

John b. 4th april 1731 in Billinge
James b. 27th Oct. 1728 in Billinge

It seems they had only these two children. There are so many scenarios of why this was. So I am looking for the information that would be on the original transcript of the marriage to see if there is anything else of relevance.

The film is:  Parish registers for Wigan 1580-1900. Source Film Number is 1885673.

Any and all help on this much appreciATED. tHANK YOU
