Hi i've got a wedding certificate that shows a family living at 3 Ashford Street, Shoreditch in December 1902 and for the life of me I can't work out where this family are in 1901 or any proceeding year, sadly they're a family that at some point have changed their names for some unknown reason.

Can anyone tell me roughly where I might find Ashford Street on the 1901 Census as (fingers crossed) they might be there and their names have just been recorded wrongly.......

The wedding was for a John White Hankin (born approx 1882) and the certificate states that he is a stonemason and that his father is John Hankin. By the time John White Hankin was a father the Hankin was dropped and never used again....... so I really need to link with the right family.

John White Hankin married Ellen Jane Hale.

Any help in solving this mystery would be fantastic as I'm gonna have a big bald patch soon.

Cheshire / Where is Liscombe?
« on: Wednesday 15 November 06 00:45 GMT (UK)  »
I'm trying to trace a Mrs Mary E Crook born 1826, who says she was born in Liscombe, Cheshire on one census and in Liverpool, Lancashire in the next one. I have no hope of trying to trace what her maiden name was as I have no idea what registration districts etc Liscombe comes under.

Any help would be great thanks.


Scotland / Birth Look Up Help Please
« on: Monday 31 July 06 08:23 BST (UK)  »
Please could someone help me, I need a birth looked up. I just had a quick look at Scotishpeople or whatever it's called and it doesn't cover the year I'm interested in.

I have no idea as to where the birth took place, but I think it would be quite close to England by what memories I have regarding old conversations.

David Pringle Kerr was born about 1907, could someone possibly look his birth up for me or tell me where I can check. I live in Hertfordshire so it's impossible for me to run up to Scotland to check this out for myself.

Thanks in advance

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Henry Pemberton Smith of Shoreditch
« on: Saturday 17 June 06 00:19 BST (UK)  »
Hi has anyone got a Henry Pemberton Smith born in Shoreditch in their family tree? His father is Robert Smith.

The IGI says that he was born on 3 March 1811 in Shoreditch and that his parents were Robert Smith and Mary.

Henry Pemberton Smith a widower married Margaret Blewitt on 5th March 1855 at St. John the Baptist, Hoxton, Shoreditch. Both are widows living in Henrietta Street. Henry is down as a brass founder and Robert Smith (deceased) is down as a rectifier.

I'm really interested in hearing from anyone with Henry in their tree as Margaret Blewitt nee Hall (from Scotland abt 1811 died Enfield, Middlesex 1879) is my 3x great grandmother.
