Staffordshire / Whitehouse, Bradley
« on: Thursday 19 January 06 22:31 GMT (UK)  »
I have interests in William Whitehouse c 1808 Tipton, and Hannah late Humphries formerly Gorsman c 1808 Birmingham.
 I have them in censuses from 1841 onwards - Tipton, West Bromwich areas.
Children: Ann Maria, Charlotte, Amelia,  James, Rachel, Sophia and Caleb.
Sophia married John Bradley in 1867.
Any information - other than censuses would be appreciated - I would also be interested in any confirmation re Hannah - does late Humphries mean her first marriage and Gorsman her birth name or is it the other way round please?

Lancashire Lookup Requests / 1841 look up Liverpool please

I have a family - Patrick and Sarah for a friend from 1851- 1871.
They are sometimes Gavan/Goven/Gavin. They lived at 47 Hodson Street, Liverpool all this time.
We now belive that Sarah was Callagan/Callaghan - and indeed in some of the censuses are living with the Callaghans.
I wonder if some kind person, who has access to 1841 might look for Sarah/Sebina/Selina Callagan / Callaghan (sorry for all the variations). They were born Ireland so probably are not there!
Other members of the family are (from 1851) -
Catherine (head); Honora; Michael; Anthony; Catherine.
1851 references are: HO107/2179 folio 21 page 34
Thanks very much

Ireland / Paying for Irish research
« on: Wednesday 07 December 05 18:15 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone,
I thought I had posted this but can't see it - must have lost it when my computer was playing up!
When I get Irish BMD records, I can pay by credit card - by mail not online.
However, I have a form to complete re Land registration and this of course requires a fee in Euros. (no credit cards) The last time I was asked to pay in Euros, I think it cost quite a bit to purchase something or other to arrange the payment(Sorry I've forgotten the details) and I was lucky enough to get someone to do it all on a visit to Ireland - not now however.
Does anyone know or have any ideas as to how to pay in Euros from England?
Thanks for any help

Denbighshire / marriage Robert Hughes and Lora Roberts
« on: Friday 04 November 05 20:57 GMT (UK)  »
Sorry (links with previous message re Hughes family)
Wondering too if anyone would have details (or could look up please) a marriage for Robert Hughes and Lora Roberts.

In 1851 census living at Bodrach, Denbighshire with Morris Hughes and family (Robert and Lora were servants)

They had a son around 1851 so presumably got married that year after census.

Robert Hughes, born about 1828 at  Llangerniew and
Lora (variations of spellings) Roberts born about 1832 Dolwyddelan, Caernarvonshire.

I do have them later, thank you.

Any help appreciated.

Lora (variations on spellings) Roberts born abt 1832 at Dolwyddelan.
In 1851 is a servant with Morris Hughes and family in Bodrach, Denbighshire.
Later married Robert Hughes (nephew of Morris).
Am looking for marriage details - may be Denbighshire though but especially parent details from 1841 census or baptism records please.

Denbighshire / Hughes family Llangernyw, Llanrwst and surroundings

Any help appreciated  thankyou--
especially 1841 census/ church records  as I have all other census details.
Robert Hughes (Roberts Hughes in 1851 census) is an agricultural servant 1851 to his uncle:
1851 - Bodrach
Morris Hughes born 1806, Llanrwst. Farmer of 95 acres --  Morris moves around a bit after that in other censuses. Other Hughes around but unsure if they are relatives.
Robert Hughes was born abt 1828 Llangernyw, Denbighshire.
I have later details on Robert but his parental details would be appreciated.

Merionethshire / help re Hughes and Williams Ffestiniog
« on: Thursday 03 November 05 23:26 GMT (UK)  »
Hello everyone,
I am posting this in the hope that someone out there may have some connections!
1.5.1883 Ffestioniog - William Hughes, aged 20 yrs and Jane Williams aged 21 yrs.
The couple had a son Robert in 1884 and then emigrated to USA. 
The problem is that Jane's father is given as William Williams on her death certificate in 1948; but as Robert Williams deceased in 1883 on her marriage.
Witnesses to marriage: Catherine Williams and William Williams. We have William Hughes and family in census and are sure about him.
Jane's address at marriage is Market Square, Ffestiniog. Can't find her at this address in 1881 - but she may be a servant  (there are two who fit) and in other censuses I can't find a Robert (father)  to match Jane (daughter). I can find an Ellis Williams married to a Cathrine with children including Jane (age would fit) and a Cathrine but not sure - wonder if I'm going on a wild goose chase then...
Can anyone advise/ help or hopefully identify please?
