Hi, its Lei-Anne Warren here.  I am a direct descendant of Norman Cranch - hes my great grandfather - he was commonly known as Thomas Norman Cranch.  My sister and I did a bit of work on this family which you can find on the LDS website.  Wow, you guys have done some amazing work on this family line.  Some of Norman's brother's and sister's children are still alive and living today.  My grandfather had 10 children and raised 3 others, he has 34 grandchildren over 40 greatgrandchildren and about 15 gggrandchildren.  So we are a rather large tribe.  Im willing to share any info that I have - the Cambridge museum has some hilarous newspaper articles on my great granddad Norman - he was a character - he is known as Thomas Norman Cranch.  One of the family farms is still in the family today.  I pull out my files and put more information on line for you.  Email me.  Lei-Anne

Hi Lei-Anne

Welcome to RootsChat.† † †:)

Sounds like we're gonna have this CRANCH family, sorted in no time !† † :D† † :D

Bellbird won't believe her luck when she sees your message.
We'll all look forward to learning what you have to add (oh ... and perhaps sharing in a tale or two about great-granddad Thomas Norman ?)    ;)

Hello Lei-Anne,

Am I glad to see a post from you!

Maybe you can sort out a dilemma we have at the end of the Samuel CRANCH/Elizabeth WEBB family.

Namely the Annie Muriel CRANCH/ William Robert Norman WARREN marriage.
I'd parked her at the end of that family - not knowing where she belonged. But Bellbird has no knowledge of her!
 Do you have info on that couple to share with us? Help us out of a pickle!
Cranch - Devon; London; Anywhere.
Moore - Honiton, Dev.

Concerning Anne Muriel Cranch and William Robert Norman WARREN, my sister and I are in dispute because I don't think she belongs in this family but my sister thinks otherwise and had one of those feelings that wouldn't go away concerning her - you never know she may be one of the grandchildren.  Why I am in dispute with my sister over this is because I have a copy of Elizabeth Cranch's (nee Webb) will and it states clearly how many children there are and it names them and Anne does not feature in the will.  What I can try and do is get a copy of her birth or death certificate to clarity it.  But I'm sure I am right because she does not feature in any of the information I have on the family. 

There is also meant to be portraits of all Samuel and Elizabeth themselves and their children - so it would be interesting to see if they still exist.

Hope this helps, will try to check in everyday, but am in the middle of an assignment at university so if I'm out of touch thats why.

Thanks Lei-Anne,

RE: Annie Muriel CRANCH
Did you, by any chance, enter her into the IGI? Because whoever did thought she was born in Carterton.† I think a look-up of her birth in the indexes would be sufficient to place her correctly, based on a presumed birth date around 1901.

Lu has found her on an Electoral Roll in Auckland:
1919† Auckland East Electoral Roll

CRANCH, Annie Muriel - Public Hospital, Park road, spinster

And I found a report of her passing her Nursing Exam:

AUCKLAND WEEKLY NEWS
NURSES
RESULTS OF EXAMINATIONS
1918

NURSESí EXAMINATIONS [AWN 01.08.1918] p.22
CRANCH, Annie M (Auckland)

Cranch - Devon; London; Anywhere.
Moore - Honiton, Dev.

Think it would be best if you are going to get a cert to get the marriage certificate.   :)

the birthplace is easy to check ....

Sure someones on it right now,  :)

Mmmm ... I'd go with around 1898 (or earlier) ... she would have needed to be 21 for entry on the electoral roll.    :)  :)
