Northamptonshire / Thomas Billings and Elizabeth Tursell?
« on: Sunday 16 September 18 14:47 BST (UK)  »
Hello
A few trees give a marriage license for my 9th grt grandparents in Northamptonshire as 'Thomas Billings, Gent' of Cottingham to an Elizabeth Tursell/Turnell of Cottingham? dated 1688. I cant seem to find a record for this marriage myself anywhere and I'm not sure if Elizabeth's surname is indeed Tursall/Tursell on the photocopy of the license given on some trees.
Any help appreciated.

Warwickshire / George Frearson/Freerstone/Frurstone

Looking for the marriage and baptism of George Freerson/Frearson.
He marries a Jane sometime before 1797 although I cant seem to find one.
As far as I can see they baptise 2 children in Nuneaton -
George Frearson bapt May 1797
Elizabeth Frearson bapt Aug 1810
Son George moves to Leicestershire and dies 1856.

The names have been transcribed as Freerstone/Frurstone but the family name is Frearson.

Jane dies Dec 1827 listed as a Widow living on Abbey Street with a birthdate of 1762.
There is a George 'Freeston' who dies in Blaby Leicestershire in Sep 1827 with a birthdate of 1757, Im not sure if this is my George though.
Any help appreciated.

I suppose Id have to buy the certs to find that out but in 1911 he is listed as a Furniture Warehouse man. So Id assume he would be in the City somewhere.

Gone through FindMyPast looking at 1911 censuses in Leicestershire under name Ada born 1910 give or take and can find nothing on Kirby or anything similar. Even looked with just the name Ada but to no avail.
I know on FindMyPast the 1911 census for James and Selena, the family has been mis transcribed as 'Kirley' and at one point was mis-transcribed as 'Kieley'

I hadn't delved further into Williams siblings but that certainly looks like they have done what you suggest.

No Idea where William and Elsie are then. William I have dying in 1937 Billesdon. Elsie dies 1973 Leicester. She is listed on 1939 census as a Widow and living with her son William who was born 1919.

Hmm I wonder who that John is then. The 1851 census definitely lists last child as a Daughter and looks to be Jane.

This is what I thought, It seems Selina was baptised twice. Once on her own in 1853 and then again in 1854 with Frederick and Catherine in the same Church by the same Vicar.
I think Selina might be Illegitimate as dates don't add up for her birth of around 1853 and David's death in 1851. Although if that is the case, Why did she list her father as David Doors? Didn't want to seem illegitimate?

Hmm I wonder if that is Catherine? Pet name as Kitty? On the 1851 census there is only Frederick, Charlotte and what looks to be a daughter Jane. This Jane disappears after 1851 no birth record or burial. Catherine is bapt 1854 along side Fred and Selena, Maybe this is Kitty but not baptised until later and Jane is Selena but not registered or bapt till later? Selena lists her father as David even though he died in 1851 and on census she says she is born 1853-1855.

Leicestershire / Door/Dore family of Leicester.

Ive posted about this family before but wondered if anyone could perhaps shed some reasoning's on what is going on.

My 3rd grt grandmother is Selena Door/Doors/Dore. She marries James Kirby 8 Mar 1875 Leicester.
She lists her father as DAVID DOORS. Her birthdate is given as 1855.
This is where I'm having the conundrum.
Selena's mother is Caroline Hubbard, she marries David Doors 1842 Leicester and have the following children by 1851 census - 
Charlotte Door born 1842 Leicester
Frederick Door born 1844 Leicester
Jane Door born 1850??? Leicester???
Charlotte and Frederick both have birth GRO records but there is nothing for this Jane.
In 1861 Charlotte and Jane have disappeared but a Selena and Catherine Doors have appeared and both have birthdates of around 1852/1854.
Charlotte marries in 1862.
David Doors dies in 1851 so these 2 children cant be his but Selena lists her father as David Doors on her marriage.
Selena's birth GRO is registered 1853 but could Selena be this Jane from the 1851 census?
Caroline seems to baptise Frederick, Catherine and Selena together in 1854 but Frederick was alredy baptised in 1844 so why baptise children again in St Margarets when one was already bapt in St George? Is this the case of two illegitimate children, Selena and Catherine? or were they born but not baptised and registered till after David died in 1851?

Unfortunately she is not with any siblings.
Elsie is the oldest child born 1889, Her next sibling is born 1897. All other siblings are living with parents Christopher and Elizabeth in 1911.
