Samuel MEEK born Somerset Taunton 1892
« on: Monday 22 May 17 13:26 BST (UK) »
Hi

Can anyone help me trace this man and his parents I believe they moved to Bristol by 1911 where he married in 1914.

Many thanks

David ;)

Hi David
If that's correct, there is a tree on Ancestry that has his marriage certificate to Alice Rowe. That says his father was John Meek a railway employee.

Hi Groom and Rosie

Thanks so much for that very valuable information. I just need now to get confirmation now that the family or specifically Samuel mover to Bristol by 1911. Sadly their eldest child Hilda was murdered in 1935 aged 19 and Samuel died 3 years later at the age of 46.

Kind Regards

David :D

No, the family was still in Taunton for that census but Samuel wasn't with them!

Gloucs sounds about right for the tribe of Meek's, miners, from the Forest of Dean?

Hi Skoosh

According to the 1911 census John was born in 1848/9 in Stapleton Glos. the  Freebmd site shows a John Meek born 1852 son of Richard Meek & Hannah  Harrison who married in 1848. The 1851 Census shows Richard born c1824 in EastnDean. Any ideas where I can look beyond that please.

Many thanks

David
