Mary Bradshaw
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 16:56 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

Iím trying to trace any decendants of Mary Bradshaw born in 1883 in Hull, East Yorkshire.
I have discovered she married a Christopher William Jordan in 1903. In the 1911 census they were living at 749 Hessle Road Hull. They had one son, Laurence William aged 7 years and one daughter
Amy Lillian age 3 years. This is were the trail has run cold. Any help would be much appreciated.

Best regards,
Nick Uebel

Two births up to 1939

Births Jun 1913   
Jordan    Elsie M    Bradshaw    Sculcoates    9d   282   

Births Mar 1921   
Jordan    Christopher R    Bradshaw    Hull    9d   540

Looks like Christopher died in 1997.

Can't see any Mary Jordan (Wright) with the parents and the two children listed.  Two records are closed.  Don't know if they were Land Girls/Boys working on the farm or possibly grandchildren.
