Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Emma Thraves
« on: Tuesday 14 October 14 21:18 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone,

I wonder if anyone can help?  I have Emma Traves born 1841 in Nottingham, she married Charles William Button in 1865.  I would like to find out her parents if possible, I've found her in 1851 with her mother Maria Thraves born Nottingham abt 1803, she is listed as widow.

I can't find anything on familysearch, can anyone help?

Many thanks,
Sue    :)

Lancashire Completed Lookup Requests / *COMPLETED* Allerton Cemetery Liverpool
« on: Wednesday 18 June 14 10:13 BST (UK)  »
Hi there Rootschatters,

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction here.  I have found a burial record online for my 2xG Grandmother - Louisa Walls, she died in 1923 and was buried in Allerton Cemetery, Liverpool.  I have the cemetery reference - CEM 5/1/2, Page 291, Entry no. 14739, Year 1923.  I have also found a map of the cemetery with the various sections plotted.  Does anyone know how I might find in which section she is buried.  I hope to visit in a couple of weeks time.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

All the best,
Sue    :)

Isle of Man / James Caine
« on: Monday 27 January 14 20:18 GMT (UK)  »
Hello there fellow Rootschatters,

Could someone please help me identify this family, I've spent ages going through all sorts of records with no luck!  James Caine was born in Ballaugh, 1827 the son of William & Isabella Caine.

I have found the following family tree information on

James Caine b.11 Jan 1825 d.1880
m. 1853
Mary Ann Kewley b.1830 d.1898
Mary Ann - b.abt 1854 - m.abt 1897 - Hugh Wallace
William Henry - b.abt 1856
Isabella Ramsay - b.abt 1858
Eliza Annie - b.abt 1860 d.abt 1940 - m. Ole Tedmanson
Margaret - b.abt 1866
John George - b.abt 1868 d. 1946
Ellen - b.abt 1870
Agnes Helena - b.1875

I should love to add this information to my tree but can find no verification of any of the information stated, I am presuming we are on the IOM but as no place names are included it is possible that he emigrated!!!!

Can anybody help?

All the best,
Sue   :)

Canada / Adelaide Teare - Completed Thank-you!
« on: Saturday 25 January 14 20:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there,

Could someone please help - I have an Adelaide Teare born 1861 Maughold, Isle of Man.  I have traced her as far as the England 1901 census, she is unmarried and working as a Lady's Maid, and then I lose all trace, there is a record on the Canadian Passenger List on ancestry but I have not got a worldwide subscription so cannot access it.  Did she move to Canada and subsequently die there?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Leicestershire / Thomas Wilson, gentleman of Coleorton
« on: Sunday 19 January 14 16:31 GMT (UK)  »
I have come across a will (National Archives) for Thomas Wilson, gentleman of Coleorton, and have been trying to find out more about him in the hope that I can link him to my Wilson family.  His will is dated 11 Mar 1808, and in it he leaves bequests to his various nieces and nephews of his siblings - Ann Ayre, Catherine Storer, Elizabeth Slater and John & Samuel Wilson.  One of the children of John Wilson is Thomas who I am hoping is my Thomas Wilson (he was born 1767 and jointly established Coleorton Pottery in 1835).  I have never been able to trace Thomas' parents all I know is that on his marriage in 1801 he is listed as "of Donisthorpe" but I cannot find any baptism records from here.

Is there anyone who might help identify Thomas, I don't even know how old he was when he died, all help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

With many thanks,

Derbyshire Lookup Requests / John Waterall of Loscoe
« on: Wednesday 23 January 13 16:28 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone,

I am hoping to find the parents of John Waterall, he was born in Loscoe c.1784.  I'm not sure whether he would have been baptised in Heanor or Codnor, so I'm hoping that somebody may have the parish records from around this time.  He was living with his sister Dorothy in 1861, she would have been born around 1792, if this helps.

Many Thanks,

Kent / Address lookup - Dover
« on: Thursday 11 August 11 13:51 BST (UK)  »
Hello there,

Is it possible to be able to find who was living at this address in 1938?

Heathercote, The Droveway, St. Margarets Bay, Dover

I have the found a record of Peter G Wilson and Mary E Wilson on an incoming passenger list from Brisbane and hope to be able to verify if they are my family.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks,

Australia / Peter Graham WILSON
« on: Thursday 11 August 11 13:44 BST (UK)  »
Hello there,

I require some help by Rootschatters who know their way around Austrailian records.

I have for some time been trying to find out what happened to Peter Graham Wilson born 1909 to Bertram Wilson and Ethel Mary (nee Lord).  His father died in 1920 in Finchley, London and I should love to know what happened to his wife Ethel Mary and his son Peter Graham Wilson. I cannot find a death entry in the GRO death index.

Today, I found a record of incoming passenger list on ancestry, from Brisbane to London (Tilbury) on 2 Sep 1938 for Peter G Wilson age 29 (1909) and Ethel M Wilson age 65 (1873) it gives their country of future intended residence as Austrailia.  I can't find any record of either leaving the UK.

Can anyone help, this seems too much of a coincidence not to be them.  I'd love to know what became of them.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
