Banffshire / Re: Herd/Noble Illegimate on census 1871
« on: Wednesday 27 December 17 18:14 GMT (UK)  »
Mabel... I just did a little bit of digging and figured out that the children's mum died in childbirth and the emunerator must have thought Jean was their mum as their dad was away.

Thank you for taking the time to respond, much appreciated

Banffshire / COMPLETED - Herd/Noble Illegimate on census 1871
« on: Wednesday 27 December 17 17:05 GMT (UK)  »
I am wondering if someone could shed some light on why 2 children would have been listed on the 1871 census as Illegitimate, when their parents were married.

1871 24 Crook Oness Street, Banff
James Noble 1821 Fisherman
Mary Noble 1845 Fishermans Wife
Jean Noble 1845 Dom Serv
Alexander Herd Grandson 1869 Illegitimate b. Macduff
Infant Grandson 1871 Illefitimate b.Macduff

I have been able to obtain the birth for both Alexander and Infant (James) and their birth register state Father Robert Herd-Seaman m.s and mother Jane Herd (formerly Noble).  They married in 1866

I am assuming Jean above is Jane and wonder why their children would be listed on the census as illegitimate even though the parents were married.

Monica I did'nt actually realise how long it's been, but I started this thread in 2012... Blimey!

I will keep trying and trying and trying - my only worry is that he was illegitimate and I may never know the truth.

HI Monica, thank you so much for your help again :)

I think I explored the potential Milne family a few years ago and then found something that ruled this Alexander Williamson out, I must had deleted the tree that I started because of this...... oh I wish I hadn't because I cant remember why I thought it was not him. 

So I have decided to start again and look a bit further into it, thanks for the links you offered.  I have started the tree in ancestry again and am going to look a little bit further to see if there is anything at all that can confirm if this is my Alexander.  I will let you know if anything comes up,  fingers crossed.

thanks again :)

Banffshire / Re: Banff - Birth

Thank you Anne, your right something isn't right, I have tried for a couple of years now and researched every Williams in Banff to the extent of anyone in Scotland :)

Monica, I would love to know what happened to Elizabeth because I cant locate a marriage for him to Elizabeth and then cant find a child Alexandra  born in 1900, I am familiar with Northumberland/Durham but that hasn't helped, I am swayed to believe that they weren't married and like Anne mentioned about his birth "Something isn't right".
I definitely know he married in Northumberland in 1913 as a Bachelor (to my ggm), with a father named as John (deceased) but that hasn't helped either.
I think he moved from his birth town in about 1880's and ended up in Durham. I have for definite on 1901 (birthplace Banff) and 1911 (birthplace Banff, Scotland) census and both so that's why i questions where it could have been exactly.  It does seem strange that he would have moved to Durham from Banff unless of course he was involved in the Fishing Industry. 

Then I question why would someone say they were born in Banff, why Banff, how would he have even heard of a town called Banff if he didn't have a connection with the Town.

Researching your family history should come with a warning about how frustrating it would be.

Banffshire / Banff - Birth

I have a family member who lived in Northumberland in 1901 and the census states that he was born in Baff, Scotland, which I take to be a spelling error and it is actually Banff, Scotland. 

My question is if someone says they were born in Banff, would this mean it was actually the town of Banff or could anyone tell me which other towns I could look at when seeking a birth, where in 1869 would be known as Banff (I mean neigbouring towns as I am not from the area).

Northumberland / Re: North Shields - Queen Alexandra Road West bomb 1943
« on: Sunday 19 February 17 11:42 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you for your help.  I was asked by a friend to look into this as she had been told her house on Queen Alexandra Road West ad been hit by a bomb, hence the reason why her home is different to the other in the street, her house in nearer the gunner end.  But looking at the responses and also research I have I cant find any mention of a bomb hitting the bottom end of the street, I have a picture of the destruction on Queen Alexandra Road, but looking closely at it it looks like the top end of the street near the college, which would be right if the bomb hit west of Hawkeys Lane.
Thank you so much for your hep.

Northumberland / North Shields - Queen Alexandra Road West bomb 1943
« on: Thursday 16 February 17 20:24 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone has any information or old photos of Queen Alexandra Road West, North Shields, or maybe could look up 1939 register to see who was living at number 105.
I am led to believe that the bomb hit this house and it was rebuilt and just wanted to see what the street looked like before 1943 if possible, or whether it is ust a rumour.
