« on: Saturday 30 September 17 19:41 BST (UK) »
Hi folks,

Been ages since i posted on here and even done any research but....here goes....

I have Ann Mason b.1834 Bishop Auckland...i think ive found a marriage for her in 1856 Auckland 10a 162.  I dont have a subscription to any sites and wanted to find out Ann's husbands name please. 

Hope someone can help.  Many thanks.

Elaine.

P.S.  Ann's parents were Thomas Mason and Penelope Robson.

Hiya

Marriages Sep 1856 10a 182
Ann Mason OR Bridget Stainton married John Wilson OR George Shaw
(Vice Versa)

What were the names of their children?

Use Gro.gov.uk to look up mmn?

Hi Ray and Keyboard,

Many thanks for your help. I dont know the names of Ann's children if she had any?  Ive not found her in any cencuses after 1851 but i didnt know her married name. 

I have my tree on ancestry and when i was subscribed it gave a 'hint' of a death for Ann in 1910 in Illionois?  I have a US cousin tracing the Mason line.  Somehow we are connected and im wondering if its through Ann Mason?  Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Elaine

Census sheets for 1861 / 1871 should reveal most, not all, offspring.

Gro.gov.uk will "def" give you offspring.

Why not look them up (and ask us to check them)?
Surely, half the pleasure of creating your family tree is pride in doing the research yourself?

Hi Ray

Gro.gov.uk is not found on my tablet?  Dont know why?

Ive found the family on the 1881 free census so thats revealed the childrens names and dob etc.  Im rather rusty with the research and having no subscription hinders me a little too.

Thanks again folks ☺

Hi

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/ = UK General Records Office

You only need to register (free) to confirm births including mmn mothersmaiden name


If you have found the children then why not tell us who they are?
