Wigtownshire / wilson?
« on: Tuesday 12 December 17 08:52 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, guys, hoping I've finally broken a wall down after all these years. My gg granddad john Wilson married esther brotherton in 1861 Wolverhampton and listed his birthplace as Scotland 1842 and father james - a tin smith which matches james Wilson born 1816 Wigtownshire living in London road Wigtownshire in stranraer but cannot find james or his wife elizabeths death date, his whole children's line seems to emigrate or vanish after 1881. There's a james Wilson baptised in 1817 wigtown with parents mary simpson and Thomas Wilson but in 1841 census the only ones in Wigtownshire (married 1830) are listed as born in 1806 which can't be right. Any help setting me on the right track and helping me extend this possible breakthrough would be very much appreciated.

Hi guys, does anyone know when  Emily jane seward born 1875 devon died? she married Sidney john kingdon in Barnstaple 1904 before he moved to wales in 1906 and married someone else but I cant find her in 1911 census she might have changed name or married again, also an amy Winifred kingdon born 1904 and buried pilton 1904 might have been her daughter but subs has run out so cant check FindMyPast baptisms and she might have only listed herself and not father in baptism register, thanks for any help on the matter, driving me crazy.

Hi guys, after years doing the family history and buying more certs than I should have I'm still only back to 1720 with my devon kingdon family and wonder if anyone of more experience can find info on the parents of Matthew Kingdon born 1720 high bray and died 1796 to get me back on right track or info on his earlier descendants,  thanks.   

Lancashire / kingdon question

Hi guys, my great granddads brother Jack (John) kingdons war record (#49756 RFA) doesn't seem to have survived but I'm hoping for better luck with his police constable service record, in 1920 he was living at 47 st georges hill west derby, county of Liverpool (according to his sons birth cert) and I would appreciate some help in who to contact to get a copy of his police record. Jack was born oct 4 1891 Barnstaple and died 4 jan 1944 Wolverhampton. Thank you.

Hi guys, my great granddad edward Stephen stokes died on feb 1 1920 at 101 st barnabos road middlesborough and as it wasn't his usual address I wonder if anyone could tell me who owned the building, if it was a workhouse, hospital etc. Thanks for any help in the matter.

Hi guys, I'm having some trouble with the Barnstaple side of my Kingdon tree and would greatly appreciate some help, my great granddad Sydney john kingdon had 7 siblings and I am missing the death dates of the final 3
Mildred Ellen Kingdon born sept 1886 was a servant to Elizabeth tock 1901 Barnstaple and possibly married in 1904.
Elizabeth Jane Limebeer born Barnstaple 10 dec 1874 married Richard johns and emigrated to Manitoba Canada, according to his probate records Richard died in 1922 Manitoba, signed by Elizabeth but I don't have a death date for her.
Edith Mildred (or Matilda) Kingdon born sep 1880 married leonard ryman and likewise emigrated to Manitoba, leonard died in 1939 but I have no death date for edith.
Thanks so much for any help in finding out what happened to these three ladies.

Staffordshire / Elizabeth M A Vickers
« on: Sunday 09 July 17 21:40 BST (UK)  »
Hi guys,I recently rejoined ancestry after coming across another family riddle but have been unable to crack it. My great granddad Robert purvis of Wolverhampton remarried to Elizabeth m a Vickers in 1944 after the death of his first wife Sophia, but though I know Elizabeth died in 1962 I cannot find  any info of her previous, her father  is recorded as Richard Wilkinson on her marriage cert and she was 62 - a widow - in 1944 but I'd greatly appreciate if an expert can point me in the right direction of where she was born and when etc.

Family History Beginners Board / unnamed child?
« on: Monday 24 April 17 12:48 BST (UK)  »
Apologies if someone asked before but does anyone kniw why a birth certificate wouldnt carry a childs first name? george kingdon had a daughter in barnstaple 1866 with his wife matilda but only listed her surnsme, i thught this might be merely a stillbirth so bought the cert to be a completist but theres no nearby death notice or correction on cert, i dont think they would have called her thingy kingdon for the rest of her life:) Any ideas?
