Still trying to find William in Lincolnshire. As you say there are many.

As has been written, there is a William born abt 1844, Wellingore son of Thomas and Ann in 1851 and 1861.

1871, 1881 shows William b 1844/3, Wellingore married to Fanny and living in Nottinghamshire following a marriage 1867 to Fanny Richmond.  :-\

I just had a thought.... how could Robert Harrison's mother's maiden name be Jones?

He was born in June 6th, 1889. That puts him in the June quarter. When i go to GRO and search for Robert Harrisons born in 1889 and select the June quarter, there is NO Robert Harrison with a mother's maiden name of Jones.

Can you all see the same thing, or am I mistaken?

Sorry, that is wrong ... Fanny RICHMOND married Frederick John POINTON (FreeREG).  That William HARRISON married Sarah KEIGHTLEY, both marriages at Thorney (Cambs)


Fanny was nee SEWELL (according to birth of son Wm Henry in 1871. EDIT: or possibly SANDS

The William who is in Skellingthorpe in 1851 and 1861 seems to be living with his elder brother Thomas and his wife Harriet in Chorlton in 1871. He is 27 and employed as a railway labourer, place of birth Skellingthorpe. He is listed as a lodger in the house but the head ,Thomas Harrison, is also shown as born Skellingthorpe and matches in age with brother Thomas in earlier census. In 1851 parents appear to be George and Harriet ( they are lodgers, so relationships between Harrison adults and children not shown). In 1861 they are shown as children of William Harrison and Harriet ( almost certainly the same Harriet as in 1851).

Hey Isobel,

Did you see my last post?

.....

I just had a thought.... how could Robert Harrison's mother's maiden name be Jones?

He was born in June 6th, 1889. That puts him in the June quarter. When i go to GRO and search for Robert Harrisons born in 1889 and select the June quarter, there is NO Robert Harrison with a mother's maiden name of Jones.

Why would he be registered in the September quarter if he were born in June?

You are allowed 42 days to register a birth.
