Amazing finds, thank you Sparrett and Matthewj64, terrific work and yes, definitely not Charlotte Alice.  Back to the drawing board.

Thanks for taking an interest CaroleW.  CA didn't die in 1957 - if only it were that easy!

John Vickery was in the army and the children were in orphanages, all in the UK.


Australia / Mrs C Vickery 1937 Completed
« on: Thursday 04 March 21 16:39 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to locate the whereabouts of Charlotte Alice wife of John Vickery who 'disappears' in the UK between 1934 and 1937.  She was born 13/5/1907 in Naburn, Yorkshire and her parents were Harry Nelson and Alice Brigham.

I have found a Mrs C Vickery who sailed from The Port of London 6/11/1937 arriving 10/12/1937 Melbourne on board The Orford. 

Suggestions please on how to find out what became of this lady in Australia.  Did she marry, have children, where and when did she die etc?  Was she Charlotte Alice??

Many thanks

It does help.  In the beginning of this search that was all there was to go on.  I have researched the Lichfield Freemans and several of the other Irish folk round and about.  They are probably all connected in some way, but I am finding Irish records extremely hard going.  Still, onwards and upwards.  Now to try and pin down Patrick ...

Many thanks for all the help and interest

I am assuming that the Patrick applying for a pension in 1919 who gives his parent's name as John and Mary Merriman, abode Cloonbunny, Roscommon, is the same Patrick who was on the 1851 and 1861 census returns in England with parents John and Mary Merriman born Ireland (probably Roscommon).  Patrick was born circa 1846 and his brother Daniel was bpt 1849 in Lichfield, so he was very young when he left Ireland.

I hadn't thought of him trying to claim a UK pension, good thinking outside the box Jon_ni  Great links too.  Thank you

Only sightings of Patrick are

1851 census Low Bankside, Stockport, Cheshire
John Freeman 40
Mary Freeman 40
Patrick Freeman 5
Daniel Freeman 1
all born Ireland

1861 census peel's Row, Lichfield, Staffs
John Freeman 40 b Ireland (bur Lichfield 1870 aged 55)
Mary Freeman 50 b Ireland (nee Merryman/Merriman)
Patrick Freeman 15 b Lichfield
Daniel Freeman 11 b Lichfield (emigrated to St Louis, Missouri in 1883)
Ann Freeman 2 b Lichfield
Anthony Merryman 50 b Ireland Boarder
Thomas Grefton 25 b Ireland Boarder
William Meacham 30 b Ireland Boarder

I have dead ends on Mary, Ann and Patrick, until Patrick popped up on the 1919 pension application

Thank you both.  Yes, that is it.  It seems the Irish Local Government Board was located in Whitehall in 1919.  It would narrow down my search for Patrick to know where he was living at the time. 

I have tried researching the history of the Irish State Pension, but so far haven't found the small print on residency requirements. 

Patrick was born circa 1846 and was in England by 1851.  Do others feel that I am correct in thinking that Patrick must have returned to and lived in Ireland to qualify for a state pension?

I am interested in
Date of Receipt 25/9/1919

Father and mother of applicant: John Freeman and Mary Merryman
Residence in 1851: Roscommon
County: Roscommon

Does anyone know if this definitely confirms that Patrick was living in Ireland in 1919 please?  Could he have applied if he was living in England?

Many thanks
