CaroleW: That could be her! I'm going to apply for the certificate when I can afford it, if nothing else helps in the mean time.

Kay99: I started a new thread as I thought this was different enough, sorry if not!

Is it possible that there is no pension record because he moved to Australia between 1913 and 1916 or would that not have mattered?

Thank you 'gortonboy'. I have seen that record - I'm not sure if it is her, but will apply for the record if I have to and confirm.

Lovely people I'm having some problems tracking down two baptisms for a couple as well as finding them in the census record before their marriage. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Annie Gilcriss
Born: About 1857 in Yorkshire (perhaps Sculcoates district)
Father: Edward Gilcriss

William Robert Trainer
Born: About 1852 in Scarborough, Yorkshire.
Father: James Trainer (aka Francis James Trainer)

They married on the 13th of May 1878 at Christ Church, Fulwood, Lancashire, England.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Thanks all.

Hey Guys,

I have a William Robert Trainer who was born in about 1853 in apparently Scarborough, Yorkshire.

He married an Annie Gilcriss (born Abt 1857 in Yorkshire apparently) on the 13th of May 1878 in Fulwood, Lancashire.

I have that he was in the 15th Regiment of Foot by 1879 as he has his first born in Mullinger, County Meath and his second in 1880 in Tipperary.  After this time I find them in the 1881 and 1891 census living at Saint Peter Port in Guernsey, Channel Island.

Sometime in 1891 they were back in England in Leeds, Yorkshire.

Then by 1916 he is in Western Australia, Australia with two of his sons. I can find the sons immigrations records (they went separately) but not William's himself.

If anyone could help me trace Annie or William back that would be great...I can't seem to find births or baptisms for them.

And I can't find William's military record for some reason.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your help guys.

I am not 100% on his father's names - they are taken from his death certificate, and the informant was one of his sons.

John's (junior's) full name is John Stephen McCune. I don't know anything more about his parents.

I only know where his wife Elizabeth was living before she married John Stephen McCune - 11 Upper Leeson Street in Dublin.

Dublin / John McCune, Dublin - Marriage and Census
« on: Tuesday 15 October 13 10:49 BST (UK)  »
Hey Guys,

I was wondering if anyone was able to assist me - I am trying to locate John McCune and his parents John and Jane in the 1901 and 1911 census or in any other records. John was born in Dublin in about 1896. John married Elizabeth Murray in 1917 in South Dublin but that is all I am able to find. John and Elizabeth had three children - John Aloysius McCune in 1918, Bernard Joseph McCune in 1920 and Maureen Patricia McCune in 1921. The family emigrated to Australia in 1926 aboard the Demosthenes from London.

The surname doesn't appear to be that common so I wondered if the surname is something slightly different but have had no luck with McKeon, McCann and other similar surnames (can't recall all the ones I have tried).

Any assistance and advice appeared! Thanks :)
