Completed Census Requests / Re: 1911 help needed - can't find family
« on: Sunday 12 April 09 19:08 BST (UK)  »
Thanks for taking the time to look.
I've tried looking for them under the name McCloud, as that was Jane's maiden name. I've managed to locate her mother and siblings, but Jane herself (with children Ralph and Annie) wasn't with them.
I've noticed a few people are struggling to find ancestors on the 1911, so maybe alot of them didn't fill it in?
Who knows!

As far as I know the blanked out bit is on all of the 1911 census images. I believe it has something to do with the 100 year rule, and the data protection act, so they aren't allowed to reveal that column yet. I'm sure someone will correct me if i'm wrong!

With regard to the section about number of children, I was under the impression that it was only the married women who had to fill that part in. Although, luckily for me, my G Grandad had filled his bit in!

I'm afraid I don't know why your G Grandad's occupation wasn't filled in. Maybe the head of the household didn't know what your G Grandad's job was?

Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Good luck finding your G Grandma - mine too has disappeared from the 1911 census!

Thank you for your quick reply.
The Crowther line is proving difficult ot trace, and I have managed to work backwards to 1871 with them.
The marriage ref you provided is the right one.
I am aware that to look at search results will use up credits, and I really wasn't meaning for people to do that. I was just hoping that someone may be able to search and scan through the results - something may jump out at them and then they can point me in the right direction. I've tried searching with just the name Ralph, with and without location, with and without birth year. I've searched with just the surname, I've searched using Jane. I've attempted to do wildcard searches, but not sure if i'm doing that right. I just thought someone with a bit more experience might have some other ideas for me to try!


Completed Census Requests / 1911 help needed - can't find family

I was wondering if anyone out there could help me search the 1911 census? I've spent the last two days trying to find my granddad and his mother to no avail, though I know they should be there. I think it might be a case of me looking but not seeing! So I hope a fresh pair of eyes may be more successful. Fingers crossed.

The details are -
Ralph Pattison Crowther b.1910 Amble, Northumberland,
His mother - Jane Ann Crowther b.1880 Durham
There is a chance his older sister is with them - Annie Mcleod Crowther b.1900 Amble, Northumberland.

I have found the dad (Henry Crowther b.1880) and the other son (Joseph Henry Crowther b.1902) living in Amble with Henry's mother and two brothers. Henry lists himself as married and he has helpfully filled in the information regarding children to say that he has three living, so Ralph and Annie should be out there somewhere. I can't really understand why they aren't all together.
From what I know about the family, I would expect to find Ralph in Northumberland, but I'm keeping an open mind!

Were some of the census returns damaged? I was wondering whether some were missing from the collection - unable to be transcribed - and thats why I can't find them?

Many thanks in advance for any help...I'm really stuck!

I think the place reads Tarry. There was a Tarry colliery in Eglingham, so that would tie in with the mining occupation.
Have a look at this website
Scroll down to Eglingham, click on that name and it will take you to a history of Eglingham. I think it mentions Tarry in the write up. I think you can click on the name 'Tarry', and then it should take you to a page with an option to view a map. If you click that link it will open another window with the map. You should be able to then choose to view a historical version of that map, and you get a choice of year ranges.
I hope it helps!


Family History Beginners Board / Re: Tracing backwards - pre 1837
« on: Sunday 14 May 06 18:33 BST (UK)  »
Thank you so much!
I never thought that martha could be a second wife, i just assumed that maybe her year of birth was abit out. I agree that Harrison seems the likely choice of maiden name, but i will get a certificate to make sure. It's their son Henry that is the main link to my family - i'd like to get his birth certificate, but there seems to be a few Henry Crowthers around and i'm not sure which certificate is the most likely! I'll probably end up getting one of the other children's instead.
Thank you so much for your help - i'm now back on track with my research!


Family History Beginners Board / Tracing backwards - pre 1837
« on: Sunday 14 May 06 14:37 BST (UK)  »
How do I go about tracing backwards?
I've gathered all my information from all the censuses and looked on the familysearch site, and now i've hit a brick wall.
I''ve been doing my Crowther family tree, and have got as far back as Richard Crowther born circa 1812 in North Bierley, Yorkshire, who married Martha born circa 1819 in Yorkshire. On the familysearch site I found a possible marriage record - Richard Crowther and Martha Best married 2 October 1834 at St.Peter, Leeds, Yorkshire. How do I now find out who Richard's parents were and if he had any siblings?
Thank you for any help,
