The Common Room / Origins of a Phoebe Lumley.
« on: Thursday 04 October 18 11:52 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for the origins of a Phoebe Lumley who died in Durham in 1944.I've recently been contacted by someone on a Website who suggests that her Maiden name was Jones.He said this following a Birth from the Marriage in 1921 of a Frank F Lumley and a Phoebe Rutherford  in 1921 in Durham,which gives the Mother's maiden name as Jones.Phoebe's birth is given as c 1890.I'm not finding a Rutherford/Phoebe Jones Marriage in the years 1916-1921.Now given that she does not appear in the 1911 Census as Phoebe Rutherford it is highly likely that the Rutherford/Phoebe Jones Marriage took place between the years 1911-1915.

The Common Room / Birth of William O(Oswald) Davies.
« on: Thursday 31 May 18 10:12 BST (UK)  »
I'm having great difficulty finding the Birth of a William O Davies.He was generally known as William Oswald Davies.The 1939 info gives his as an Oswald W Davies,living in the Cefn mawr,Wrexham area of  Denbighshire.this info gives a Birthdate of 05/09/1892.His death which I have had confirmed by a relative occurred,also in the Cefn Mawr area in 1963.he is buried in the local Rhosymedre Parish Churchyard.His death record gives him as a William J O Davies with an estimated Birthyear of 1893.

He was to marry a Lily Butler in 1920.This Marriage gives him as a William O Davies,this Marriage is said to have taken place in the Oswestry District of Shropshire.

Now I did strongly look at the Birth of a William John Oswald Davies given as taking place in Gloucestershire in 1892.However Family Tree info given on Ancestry would appear to rule this out.

I should also say that the later given Census info is very patchy to say the least!

Can anyone help me with a problem I'm having with my Mobile Phone please?When I make calls with my Phone I always have to use the "Speaker On" function.However this morning in trying to make calls the  response has been almost silent.The general Sound on the Phone is at maximum.One poimt to make is that I'm techno illiterate!Its an achievement for me to use the On/Off function.lolI'm told that there is something you can adjust in Settings as one or two kind people have been able to adjust something for me when this has happened in the past?

Flintshire / "Ellen"Evans Nee Jones Info.
« on: Friday 02 March 18 11:05 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for some info re my Great.Great-Grandmother "Ellen" Jones who was born in Holywell Flintshire in 18144.She was baptised to parents John and Elizabeth Jones at Holywell St James 04.06/1815.She married an Isaac Evans at Holywell St James in 1836.Isaac died in 1860 in Bagillt Flintshire.

Though I'm unable to find her in the 1861 Census,in the 1871 Census she shows as Evans living at Gadlys Lane Bagillt with her eldest son John born in c 1838.In the 1881 Census again living at Gadlys Lane with John,she shows as "Ellen" Williams a Widow.I have been so far unsuccesful in searching for her Marriage to a Williams 1871-1881?

Regards
William Russell Jones.
