Durham Lookup Requests / Census lookup please Waller Sunderland
« on: Monday 15 January 18 17:15 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find the names of Caroline Waller’s parents on the 1911 census please.  She was born Sept Q 1906 and her sister, Susan June Q 1903, both in Sunderland.  That is all I know at the moment, thanks  ;D


Please could someone do a lookup for me in the 1851 census for Anthoney Turnbull, born circa 1825, married to Barbarra Durnbull (Ancestry's transcription) in Durham, I can't see any more details than that.  Also the 1861 when he is then married to Isabella, I really need his birthplace.  Many thanks  :)

Essex / Where will he be buried? Great Stambridge 1934
« on: Friday 21 September 12 00:12 BST (UK)  »
My friend is looking for the grave of her Great Grandfather for her Grandma ( his daughter who is 82)  he died when she was 7 and would like to see his grave.

He was Charles E Friend and she has his death cert which is Ongar reg. district 21/4/1934.  His address on the cert is Great Stambridge, Rochford Essex.  The local parish church only seems to have burials up to 1903, where did they go after that?  Is there a cemeteries office I could ask?

many thanks

London and Middlesex / Samuel Locker and Isabella Hill
« on: Tuesday 10 January 12 01:05 GMT (UK)  »
I've just found this marriage on the family search site

Samuel Locker
Isabella Hill
09 Jan 1750
Westminster, Middlesex, England

What I already know is that James Locker Mohun was born in Stockton on Tees in 1828 (Bish. Trans)  to George A Mohun and Hannah.
George Armstrong Moughn was born in 1800 to George Moughn (MMN Armstrong) and Mary Locker (BT) they married in Stockton in 1792.

Also from Bishops Transcripts, Samuel Locker died Stockton 1793 and Isabella Locker widow of Samuel Locker Fisherman died Dec 1802 aged 78 years.

It's a bit of a leap from Middlesex to Stockton but George A was 2nd son, first was Robert Hill Moughn, do you think this is the right marriage? and is it possible to find a birth in the Middlesex area for him or her?  On the family search site a birth year of 1724 is given for him but it does not give his age on the BT.

Many thanks

London and Middlesex / Matilda Alice Christmas
« on: Wednesday 16 March 11 17:55 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for Matilda Alice Christmas in London in the 1871 & 1861 census'. 

She is on the 1881 married to James Alexander, with four children.  Her age is 29 which would indicate a birth year of 1851 and there is a birth in Kensington in 1851. 

On the 1891 census James is dead and she has married Alfred Cooke, two of the boys are living with them under the name Cooke and her birth year has changed to 1854. (She is a witness on her daughters marriage cert in 1897 using the name Cooke)

There is also a Matilda registered in Shoreditch in 1854!!  But in 1891 her birthplace is Paddington and that comes under Kensington so I am more inclined towards the 1851 birth.

My problem is that I can find hide nor hair of her on census prior to her marriage to James Alexander in 1871!!

London & Middlesex Completed Lookup Requests / Could be asking the impossible

Is there any way of finding out what the R stands for in the marriage of Albert R James to Lilian [MH] Laws Camberwell June Q 1916?  I'm not sure if he's my man and object to forking out £3 if they're not mine  :-X


New Zealand Completed Requests / JAMES marriage 1926/7 *COMPLETED*
« on: Thursday 28 October 10 12:39 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I'm new to searching outside the UK and hope someone will be able to help. 

I'm looking for the marriage of an A R James born Lambeth 1895 (he used Albert Raymond, Alastair Ronald and Andrew Raymond at various points in his life  ::)) to Jessie Hewitt born, I think in 1891 in Northumberland. 

Their son tells me they married in NewZealand around 1926/7 and he was a steward on Cunard ships but jumped ship in NZ.

He has a reference for him written in Auckland in 1928 where he worked on the New Zealand herald for 2 years so I'm hoping they married in Auckland. 

Any help gratefully received, many thanks  :)
