London and Middlesex / Mary A'Court, c 1858, St luke
« on: Monday 05 March 18 16:09 GMT (UK)  »
In 1881 at ref Class: RG11; Piece: 298; Folio: 67; Page: 9 a Mary C(E?) A'court is recorded as daughter to Richard and Ann A'court.
Aged 23 (c 1858) this is the first record of her I've come across.

Can anybody find her befor 1881?

(Good luck with the surname - it ain't easy!)

London and Middlesex / Ducking Pond Mews, Mayfair
« on: Friday 02 March 18 13:41 GMT (UK)  »
In 1887, I've come across someone who lived at 2 Ducking Pond Mews, Mayfair.

Can't find it on modern maps and there is little info on the net.

Can anyone give me more information please.

(Must be worth a Fortune these days!)

Somerset / Ellen Maria A'Court c 1862.

Can anybody find a Baptismal record for Ellen Maria A'Court, born c 1862 in the Yeovil area?

I believe she may have been illegitimate.


I have her later information.

Warwickshire / Annie Symes, 1873, Saltley
« on: Sunday 18 February 18 14:52 GMT (UK)  »
In 1911 Annie is with her parents recorded in her married name Haynes.
She records she has been married 17 years with one Living child.

There is an obvious marriage registered in Aston in Q4 1894. However the two grooms on the same page are Harris and Crump.
Doesn't help that I cannot find her in 1901.

Can anybody find who are her husband and child?

Somerset / Silas Hunt, c 1797 North Cadbury.
« on: Friday 16 February 18 17:01 GMT (UK)  »
I'm looking for information about the parents/baptism of Silas Hunt, born c 1797 in North Cadbury.

(I have the later info up to his death in 1854, thanks)

Glamorganshire / Phillip John James, c 1836, Cardiff
« on: Sunday 11 February 18 15:48 GMT (UK)  »
In 1851 I have Phillip with his maternal grand-parents at Piece: 2455; Folio: 355; Page: 4; A journeyman plasterer.

I can't find him in 1841 (might be recorded as John James) and I loose him in 1861 and 1871. He turns up (as a retired plasterer) in 1881 married to a Harriet Evans.

I've no idea who his parents are! But mainly I'd like to locate in in the missing censuses.

A fresh pair of eyes please.

Dorset / Omnibus Conductor
« on: Wednesday 07 February 18 15:49 GMT (UK)  »
I've just come across someone who in 1871 was an Omnibus Conductor in Weymouth.

I know nothing about it, so is it early for the profession in Weymouth? How far back to Omnibuses go?

Essex / Where is this?
« on: Wednesday 07 February 18 10:54 GMT (UK)  »
In 1901 at ref: Class: RG13; Piece: 226; Folio: 44; Page: 9 I have a place that "Ancestry" has recorded as "Badlow" but I think is nearer "Radlow". Any suggestions?

Glamorganshire / Thomas Jones, 1893, Hirwaun
« on: Monday 22 January 18 13:38 GMT (UK)  »
In 1911 (not looking for info  ;D !) I have the above living in Llandybie, Carmarthenshire as the nephew of John Owen and Jane Thomas.

I cannot make a connection.

Can anybody find him in 1901 please?
