Scotland / Re: COLLINS - My "wrong" BMDs
« on: Sunday 22 March 15 18:51 GMT (UK)  »
Goodness it's been such a long time since I logged in I couldn't remember my passwords. Anyway, Mary Collins 1861 death details:

Mary Collins, housekeeper of Quay Lane? Paisley, widow, died 4/1/1861, aged 61,  parents (no first name) McGown deceased and Margaret McGown deceased, cause dropsy 2 mths, bronchitis 12 mths, registered by daughter Bridget Collins

Any good?

What lovely find - thanks for posting the link.

 I haven't looked at my files for a long time but unfortunately I don't think he turned out to be closely connected to my Harry Horley.

Thanks Lizzie for the PM

Great, thanks for looking. At least that is someone else I can rule out.

Hi aghadowey

Yes they are my posts from ages ago. Still no further forward and so following up another long shot idea!

Thanks for your interest

Thanks but unfortunately that's not my Henry.

It's very strange because he came up with those details on findmypast but I just look on ancestry and he is not there!

England / 1851 census look up needed
« on: Tuesday 01 January 13 13:24 GMT (UK)  »

Would somebody be kind enough to do a census look up for me? I'd like to know the family and ages of the Henry Collins aged 8 born Ireland who is residing in Liverpool.
(Apologies if this is a duplicate - I thought I just now posted but I can't see it anywhere).

Many thanks

Thanks for all your helpful replies. Clearly Harry was not a twin so you have saved me the cost of buying a wrong certificate.


So in 1891 Martha is the daughter of William and Emily Horley (nee Ellis) - is that right? That would explain the GRO mistake. I think William is the uncle of my Harry - was he a carpenter on the 1891 census aged about 45?

Thanks for all your help


Interesting. So she really is a Horley and not an Ellis. Would you be able to tell me the rest of the family in 1891? Sounds like she must be a cousin to Harry.
