Ireland / Campbell Family
« on: Tuesday 03 June 08 21:54 BST (UK)  »
Hi I am trying to locate the Campbell family in the census entries. The father is James Campbell, estimated year of birth is c1850, born in Stirling Scotland. Daughters Lydia Lucy, born 1886 and Janet (McB?), estimated year of birth is 1890, Lydia at least was born in Northern Ireland. If it helps, Lydia married a Fred Walker and Janet married a Thomas H Taylor. I have no details of the mother yet. If it helps I am told that they were a military family.

Could anybody help me?

I'm trying to trace my great great grandfather John in the census entries. Could somebody try and locate him please? He was born in 1841 in Preston, Lancashire. I believe his parents were called Thomas and Margaret but I may be wrong so if somebody could throw some possibilities at me that would be great!

Best Wishes

Hello could somebody search in the census for a Joseph Tyson, born c1760 in or around Hazelrigg, Newby Bridge, Backbarrow or Ulverston. Could possibly have married a Margaret Bell and had children called Thomas Tyson born 1781 in Hazelrigg and possibly a daughter called Margaret. If anybody could help me with this I would be really grateful!
