Nurse Family Norfolk - Northumbria
« on: Tuesday 22 August 17 20:57 BST (UK) »
Dear all the NURSE family members on this website - my maiden name is Nurse. My grandfather was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne. His father allegedly moved from Norfolk to Northumbria/Newcastle and followed the mines. My grandfather moved to South Yorkshire via Stoke On Trent. It looks like he had 5 sisters and brothers.

Any help with this would be great.

From Carlily's other post:

'My grandfather was called William Nurse - married to Lillian Nurse nee Randal/Reynolds. They lived in South Yorkshire. I was born in Ireland - my father was called Thomas - he has a brother Michael and 2 sisters. I know all my cousins in Yorkshire but have found it difficult to get information on where my grandfather's brothers and sisters lived. '

I can see a marriage of a William Nurse to a Lilian Windle in Rotherham in 1927, but no Randal/Reynolds (and not Michael, but a Thomas)

Added:
Unless he is a William Michael, and there are several more births for possible siblings.

There is a Lilian (Lillian) Waites (1909) in 1939 register with a William Nurse, 1903, in Rotherham.

There is a marriage in Rotherham in 1972 for a Lilian Nurse and Leonard Waites.  Also a death in Rotherham in 1978 for Lilian Waites born 1909, and a birth for a Lilian Windle in Rotherham in 1909.

There is a death for a William Nurse born 1903 in 1962, Rotherham.

There is this birth for a William NUrse:

The Lillian you mentioned is my grandmother. I was told she had 3 differing surnames as a result of the Pensions act of 1903 and families registering.

I do remember my cousins telling me that Windle was one of the surnames of my grandmothers family.

I can confirm that William Nurse was my grandfather born in 1903. He was a very tall handsome man. Apparently with fairish hair and blue blue eyes.
