Occupation Interests / Re: Shoemakers, Bootmakers, Saddler and Harness Makers
« on: Sunday 02 February 14 23:45 GMT (UK)  »
I have 3 generations of shoemakers in my family.The first is William Gunning born 1823 in Newtownards Co Down,I don't have any census records for him as they were all destroyed but on his son's wedding entry,by which time he had died,it states shoe maker for his occupation.3 of William's sons were shoemakers,Thomas, 1855-1925, David, 1858-1921 and James, 1854-1911.Thomas,after he married in 1877, went to live in Glasgow,he's on the 1881 and 1891 censuses but he also was traveling  backwards and forwards to New Zealand,he's on the censuses in New Zealand and his brother James had moved there after he married.By 1901 he had gone to live in New Zealand permanently leaving behind his wife,son and daughter. His wife and daughter went back to Ireland but his son William James,my grandad,stayed in Glasgow where he was also a bootmaker.After going to Ireland to get married in 1903,William James returned to Glasgow where he worked as a bootmaker for the co-op.He died in 1920.David, worked as a bootmaker in Newtownards until his death in 1921.He had a big family but I don't know if any of his sons carried the business on.Hope this helps your research.

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Henry Joseph Masters
« on: Sunday 02 February 14 22:42 GMT (UK)  »
I have been trying to find where my great x2 grandad was buried but so far I have no luck.Henry Joseph Masters died in Hackney on the 14th June 1886.He's not on any web-site that has burials,I've tried contacting different parts of London but that lead to going round in circles.He was born in Kent and his first child died as a baby in Maidstone so I thought he could be there but I can't find any sites with Maidstone burials.please can someone help me,after 3 years I've run out of ideas. His daughter is also a mystery,Catherine Sarah Bunch,nee Masters,my great gran,died in Ashford,Kent in 1947,she could have been cremated,I don't know but I can't find any trace of her final resting place either.
       Thanks for any help
