census lookup
« on: Saturday 09 May 09 19:19 BST (UK) »
Hi there

Could someone please look for a Oscar H Massie living in
Much Wenlock. He should be a Baker and Confectioner in
Shineton St. Could you start with the 1901 census please.
Sorry but i have no other info on him. :-[ >:(

Hi   :)

I know you say you have nothing else on him - but - where you find him ?  Is he a father off a marriage cert  -  or a potential husband ?

Just trying to get some sort of handle on possible age   ;)

Hi there

Sorry no age. All i have on him is that he was evicted from Shineton St
in 1905 for outstanding rental payments. The name Massie cropped up
on the 1891 census when a Mary Massie,age 2, appeared as a grandaughter
to a Mary Lloyd ,

Well,  the only birth reg. I can find for an Oscar Massie is 1884 in Madeley.

He seems to be Harry O Massie in Much Wenlock in 1891  :-\

There was an Oscar Massey born 1894 in Wandsworth, but too young to be yours, I guess.

I can't see either a Harry or an Oscar in Much Wenlock in 1901  -  although his parents are still there.


Maybe - since the Boer War was in full swing - he was in the army in 1901 ?

Have just spotted an error, am slightly dyslexic and spelled  Swan Falcon Hotel as Swan Flacon Hotel.

I have automatic spell check but missed it out.
