I have for years been hunting my husband's Gt Grandfather's birth, Henry Alexander Bragg.

I have found him from his marriage onwards, on all census birth appears to be circa 1847 ish but on his death it is 1852, I have the cert, census place of birth Strand then Lambeth,  have never found a birth registration or baptisms in Strand or Lambeth for him under Henry Alexander Bragg, with unusual Christian names I would have thought it would be easier, 

Henry's  first daughter had the name Elizabeth Caroline so I have been hunting for either an Elizabeth Bragg or Caroline as his mother , on his marriage Henry Alexander Bragg states father was Edward as an artist, we have searched that and came up with nothing at all.

There is an Elizabeth Bragg show traveller/traveller born Newington, I cannot find her anywhere else except 1871/1881 census as a show traveller born newington and  a  possible death. I am now wondering if Edward was an artiste which would make sense IF Elizabeth Bragg was his wife, show traveller, I have tried entering show traveller in the box on Ancestry but nothing comes up,1871 and 1881 she is a widow, can't find anything else about her or him

I have also put a search for H A Bragg on  London RC. prior to this

Any help much appreciated

Essex / Thorndon Park Graveyard
« on: Saturday 24 March 18 07:05 GMT (UK)  »

I am looking to find more information about a grave in the Anglican Graveyard Thorndon Park, I have  what is “Essex Memorial Inscriptions Transcription “,  there is no memorial inscription but it leads me to a CD volume S E Essex Vol 1 reference 16, Can anyone tell me where this might be held, ?

The young person concerned died in Ingrave, unfortunately no more information, she was born in London 1864, 1871 she was in a Catholic school in St Pancras, St Aloysius, Clarendon Sq,  ,
REF    RG10/221 FOLIO 110 PAGE 4,
with her sister, and now her death, aged 16 in Ingrave, I have no idea why she was in this area unless she was at a Catholic boarding school in Ingrave , I have no idea where these records are kept if at all,

Any help would be much appreciated, thank you

London and Middlesex / MYOPIC SCHOOL HAMMERSMITH 1915
« on: Tuesday 30 January 18 17:13 GMT (UK)  »
I feel really sad, I have just found my fathers school record, Barbly Road, (Ladbroke Grove)
admitted 09/03/1914 and on 16/04/1915 he was discharged to Myopic School Hammersmith, does anyone know where this would be and where the records are please

Bit of the history
My father always had poor eyesight, he apparently had 14 operations on his eye till during an operation a nerve was severed, so he believed, and that was passed to me, he always worked and in 1958 was made redundant from the United Dairies Shirland Road where he had been a groom for some years till they mechanised,  he was then give a disabled card and registered blind, this broke his heart, but, after 2 years at a blind centre in Waterloo he was given a "taxi boys cabin" by the side of Praed Street, (Paddington Station) he sold anything the taxi boys wanted ice cream, drinks cigarettes and anything they asked for , he and my mother worked there till he was 70, they made very good friends with the taxi boys as my mother called them

I digress but I want to know more about the myopic school if possible

Thank you

1881, I am trying to trace my Mitchell family, missing so far on 1881, but I do know round about that time they moved to


I know there were definitely there by 1886 but I cannot find it listed, I have no idea where it is in Essex

This will tie up with a message on London Middlesex looking for Mitchell on 1881 and a missing son

Thank you in anticipation, any help much appreciated

For Some peculiar reason I cannot find my Mitchell family on 1881, I do have details on all other census

1871 I have  living 3 Duff Street Poplar
Eliza aged 26 Mitchell born Limehouse
George W son aged 4 born poplar
William  R son aged 3 Poplar
Elizabeth A dau aged 2mths Poplar

1891 just initials for this family some are difficult but a long time ago someone helped me sort them out RG12/1317 Folio 104 Page 6

6 Cundy Street Canning Town
Eliza 53 born Stepney
Arthur aged 18 born?
John aged 14 West Ham
Florrie 12 West Ham

1911, shown 10 children, 9 alive 1 deceased
15 Columbo Road West Ham/ Plaistow
Eliza aged 68 wid
John aged 24
Florence 22 on this census all born London

One child born 1877 Henry Stephen is on 1891 census aged 13, initials  only,   I  found this child by accident by checking on maiden names on ONS, he was registered 1877 Dec qtr Poplar,  after 1891 there are no more sightings of Henry Stephen . I have found quite a  few baptisms for some of the 9 siblings except those poss baptised in Essex

 I have done years of work on this Mitchell family but 1881 and the child Henry Stephen is really giving me problems, any idea folks?

« on: Monday 13 November 17 13:23 GMT (UK)  »
This is probably a stupid question but I can't find out where to go

I have a marriage
June qtr
ref 6b 315
It only shows up 3 names for a marriage
George Coates, Edwin Loton and Elizabeth Stubbs, no 4th name listed

Where can I find the forth name missing please

I am sure I used to find any cross reference but so far to now avail, must be having a S M !!
