Hi all

I've been struggling to find my GGG Grandmother "Susan" on the 1841 census.

On one of her son's birth certificates it states her maiden name was Boswall and on another son's birth certificate it states it was Leech/Leach.  I have found her on the 1871 to the 1901 as Susan Sanders b. 1833 Bethnal Green.

I have located an entry for just "Susan" on an online 1841 census:- HO107 piece 694, book 1, Enumeration District 2, Folio 37, Page 26, Line 9.

If someone has a hard copy of the census for Bethnal Green, I would be grateful if they could have a look to see if her surname matches one of the above surnames.

Many thanks in advance.

P.S. I am not convinced of the Boswall Surname at all as there seems to be so few around and I haven't been able to find the marriage of Susan (either Boswall or Leech/Leach to my GGG Grandfather John Sanders b. 1820 Spitalfields.  Their first son William Alfred Sanders was born 1863 (maiden name shown as Boswall).

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / Birth/Baptism Ovenden, Halifax
« on: Monday 15 May 06 21:07 BST (UK)  »

I have the birth certificates for two of three brothers and am unable to find the third.

He was George Edmondson Sanders born 1871 in Ovenden, Halifax according to census information.

I cannot find his birth entry on the actual BMD index (Been to look at local FHS) or online.

Does anyone have access to Ovenden parish Records who could check to see if he is there?  He married Grace Cundall in 1898 in Halifax and died in 1927 in Halifax.

The other two brothers, both born in Bethnal Green, Middlesex have certificates which show their Mother's Maiden name as Susan Boswall and  Susan Leach respectively.  I am pretty sure she is the same Susan!  It would be good to find this third brothers birth to see what the mother's maiden name is!

Thanks in advance

Yorkshire (North Riding) Lookup Requests / 1841 Thixendale - Robert Pearson
« on: Friday 27 January 06 21:38 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

My GGGGrandfather was Robert Pearson born about 1830 in Thixendale.  In the 1851 census he is a Farmer's Labourer at Old Byland. 

I have the 1841 Yorkshire census on disc but Thixendale pages are almost unreadable.

Please can someone have a look to see if they can find him? (Only about 5 pages).  I don't know the names of his parents or whether he had any siblings.  He would have been about 11.

Many many thanks.

I'm looking for John SANDERS b. 1820 Spitalfields/Bethnal Green and Susan BOSWALL/BOSWELL b. 1833 Bethnal Green.

If anyone could find them, it would be a fantastic breakthrough for me as I can't find either of them in the 1851/1861 census.  I have them from 1871 through to 1901.

Thanks for your help
Karen :))
