Gargrave ancestor help Census records
« on: Saturday 13 May 17 13:32 BST (UK) »
Hi, i'm trying to find out about the family of my x2 great grandmother Esther Edith Moore born in 1881.

For several years i thought i had the right person in the census records, then last week when reviewing my info i realised it could be 1 of 2 Esther E Moore's and i may not have been chasing the correct one.
After ordering the marriage cert of my x2 gt grandparents it gave her fathers name and as a result confirmed my previous research was incorrect. this leads me on to a new line of inquiry.

So the family i am after is Esther Edith Moore born in Gargrave in 1881, her father is John Moore. I have found the family in 1891 with mother Ann, however there are no traces of them in any previous census records, although in 1891 there is a son Arthur T Moore who is 17 years old.

I'm stumped, who was John Moore's parents and am i just not looking hard enough ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in anticipation

Jason

Wow, thank you. I've only ever been able to see mmn after 1912 in the index, this is a huge help. i shall look for a marriage between john and try to find Arthur Taylor Moore in earlier census records. still John Moore may elude us.

Many thanks

Jason
