Claudia,

I wondered what sort of Reedmaker William was!  So I did look up the occupation - as, I assume, you have so I didn't mention it.  It seems there were two sorts.  The obvious one - makers of reeds for musical instruments and also something to do with making a weavers implement (a reed) or reed cloth or the comb used in tapestry.

Everybody,

If you don't already know (and as it can get distracting scrolling across posts) there is a wonderful site that will turn a great big long URL into a Tiny URL for you!  It is at:
http://tinyurl.com/
You can then include the tinyURL in your post and it will still lead to the right site but it won't make the thread scroll horizontally.

Worth modifying previous posts?

Cheers,

Judy

OK update - one of Sir Luke Fildes's sisters, Isabella, has a descendant who has researched the tree and has confirmed (on a posting on the internet) that

1) Mary and William did have a son called Thomas

2) That they named some, if not all, after political figures/radical thinkers.

3) William and Mary had a son called George - G Fildes, son, was the person who registered the death of Mary Fildes on the certificate I have.

Its looking really good this.

I'm so impressed with the people who have helped on this.

Now to try to contact this ancestor who has the info on William and Mary,etc.

Thanks again, everyone,
I will let you know how I go on......

 Hi again,
This looks like her in 1871. She appears to be visiting Isabella rather than the Hughes as Isabella lodges in a separate household within 4 Hunters Walk, Chester. Regards Jan ;)

Thanks Jan for that, I don't suppose you have the 1861 census do you - she would have been 71, still a widow, probably still in Chester area.
Thanks for 1871, if you do have 1861 that would be really great,

Sorry Claudia I don't have access to the 61 census - if you post for a lookup on the Cheshire board, there will probably be someone there who will be happy to help.  ;) Regards and Happy searching Jan
