Glamorganshire / Elizabeth "Hack" ???
« on: Saturday 03 November 18 07:59 GMT (UK)  »
In 1871 at Ref:  RG10; Piece: 5360; Folio: 67; Page: 32 I have Elizabeth Hack (Ancestry's transcription - could be wrong!) and 3 sons as Visitors to the Wood family in Cardiff.

Elizabeth may be (or maybe not ::)) the daughter of Robert and Mary born c 1836 Hemyock, Devon.

I cannot find any obvious GRO registrations of three sons or an obvious marriage. (She did not marry Robert Hart in 1861)

A fresh pair of eyes please.

Devon / Leonard Percival Hodge
« on: Thursday 01 November 18 13:44 GMT (UK)  »
Above married Mary Anna Clist; registered Wellington, Somerset 1898.

An Ancestry tree give his birth as 19 November 1864 in Tiverton.

I am unable to confirm that by finding any record of his birth in Free BMD, GRO etc. 
Am I missing something obvious?

Devon / Hugh Brimsmead Tancock
« on: Sunday 28 October 18 14:12 GMT (UK)  »
In 1911 I have a Hugh Brimsmead Tancock of Exeter married to a Bessie of Silverton.

They appear to have been married 7 years (and a squiggle!).

I've been unable to find a Marriage. Any help please.

Somerset / Where is this?
« on: Wednesday 24 October 18 11:04 BST (UK)  »
In 1891 at RG12; Piece: 1870; Folio: 94; Page: 5 I have the Nation Family.

The three youngest children were born, in what Ancestry interprets as "Hillfarrance, Somerset".
Later censuses include Wellington as birth place.

Anybody help?

Kent / Phillip Roper Chambers
« on: Monday 08 October 18 16:56 BST (UK)  »
Phillip Roper Chambers was married on 17 July 1910 at Leybourne, Kent (reg Malling).

I have no other details (found him by following his wife Edith).

Can anybody help with where and when he was born? I've failed to find any trace in the censuses or BMDs  :'(

Cornwall / Ellen Marrack, 1860, Penzance.
« on: Monday 01 October 18 12:12 BST (UK)  »
In 1881 at RG11; Piece: 3607; Folio: 64; Page: 18 (Liverpool) an Ellen Marrack (1860, Penzance), unmarried, is Head of Household with younger siblings, including Helen M.

I an unable to find any trace of her before 1881 census.

Can anybody help?

(Apologies if I've put this in the wrong county. Family moved to Liverpool c 1870)

Later: I've found a baptismal record on FreeReg - for an Ellen Maud, baptised 1861, but this is surely Helen Maud in the censuses. Wonder if there was confusion by the 1881 numerator  ???

« on: Saturday 15 September 18 11:44 BST (UK)  »
In 1871 I've come across a 13-year-old boy, William Rosser, who was a student at Stafford College in Sydenham.

I can't find anything about the College on the Net. Has anybody got any information?

Glamorganshire / Where is this?
« on: Thursday 13 September 18 11:47 BST (UK)  »
In 1861 I have the Morgan Family at Ref: RG9; Piece: 3997; Folio: 161; Page: 48.

Although living in Monmouthshire, Thomas senior was born in Glamorgan. I can't interpret where is was born. (The 1851 census just records Glamorgan),

Any help please  ???
