Thank you both very much for looking... it will just have to remain a mystery for a while longer but at least it looks like you might have come to the same conclusions as me ;) xx

That's the one I was betting on as well but if I remember rightly I couldn't find a Bateman/Bartholomew marriage and couldn't get any further back than the 1881 census... mind you my head had completely gone doolally by that point.. :)

Those are the ones but I'm not positive that they are right... but the kids fit on the 1991 census.. ;)

Kent / Bartholomew family Sevenoaks area puzzlement
« on: Thursday 16 August 18 12:06 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone :) I've got a bit of a puzzle and I wondered if anyone could help.. :-\
I have a David James Bartholomew born 8th June 1878- 1939 reg (Sevenoaks on WW1 service records) married to Mary Elizabeth Payne (born 5th December 1877 Sevenoaks on 1939 reg) on 20th Aug 1899. In 1939 they are living in Brasted Chart. Children listed on Davids service record are James William 1915,Elizabeth Hilda 1909, George Frederick 1902, Elsie Ada 1912 and Ernest Alfred 1906. Now I think I have them on the 1911 census at Ide Hill BUT David James is listed as James Bartholomew, Mary as Elizabeth, George and Ernest with their given first names and Elizabeth Hilda as just Hilda;) In 1901 I think they might be doing the same trick with their names and at Ide HIll. Here's where the puzzle comes in- I can find the marriage reg of David James and Mary Elizabeth AND the death reg for David J BUT I can't find a birth reg in that name anywhere around the right date. I can find a reg for a James David Bartholomew in 3Q 1878 Sevenoaks. I've known folk to swap their first names for second but never on official registers.. what do you think?? I've tried tracking David Bartholomew backwards on the census with no luck. James Bartholomew I've possibly found on the 1891 and 1881 with a potential Uncle George Bateman born 1805 (1881 census) but 1826 (1891 census).... My head is boggled!! Can anyone else come up with any bright ideas?? In an ideal world I'd find out who the parents are of David James /James David Bartholomew.. HHHhheeeeeeellllppppp;) Any guidance would be very much appreciated.. xx

Hello all :) It's been ages since I've posted or helped other folks out but can anyone track the following lass ? I've got very sketchy details but here goes :- Lily Draper is listed as being arrested in March 1907 with around 70 other women when they tried to burst into the Houses of Parliament. In some newspaper articles she's listed as MRS Lily Draper in others Lillie and also Lillian on find my past. She is listed as being  24 years of age and living at Penn Street, Halifax ( March 1907) . I've searched and searched, looking upside, downside and inside outside to find her. Can anyone help? If anyone can then I know you lovely bunch can.. xx P.S. She was arrested at the same time as Dinah Connelly (Halifax) and the now well known Dora Thewlis (Huddersfield)

A search of access to archives comes up with some documents in the Sheffield archives which include some on "The death of William Wainwright"Ref WWM/F/92 n.d. along with lots of other letters between WW and the Earl... Hope that helps...
