Kent Lookup Requests / Sam Smith
« on: Sunday 18 October 20 00:48 BST (UK)  »
Evening everyone,

Hope you can help.

I am looking for someone called “Sam Smith”

Apparently he died in/near Hythe between 1960-1975
A family member remembers going to the funeral with her mother.

I have looked everyone and just coming to a brick wall.

He might have had two children
Jean and Peggy (Who apparently run off with her boss Ron Richardson, this apparently made national newspaper but again brick wall)

Sam had a sister called Eva smith and due to something or other they was separated.
Mum was leonora smith nee Carmichael
Sam was born in London I believe

There's a marriage in Lambeth 1888 with these names on

Leonora Ann Carmichael
Blanche Mary King
William John C Smith

May not be correct but one to look into and rule out if necessary.

William's job is listed as dock labour
What was the occupation for William Smith on her marriage please?


Not sure if you found what your looking for yet but if he lived in littleborune best place to contact would be barham crematorium as thats the most popluar one around here.
If they are no good Canterbury city council have a genealogy deparment (they are lovely) they will be able to tell you if he was buried local.
If not madistone city council

Hope that helps

London and Middlesex / Nurse child
« on: Wednesday 08 July 20 00:31 BST (UK)  »
Hello everyone,

While looking into my family I have found a record for someone living in my house as a "nurse child" which ive come to find that its like a forest family type situation.

my question is does anyone know of any public records that would show a paper trail and somewhere I could find information on why she was put with the family.

Her name is Clara Whitley and was in the 1881 census at 11 years old
she wasn't in the 1871 or 1891 census with my family.
head of house Francis
wife Margret

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Harriett Davey nee twyford
« on: Thursday 18 July 19 12:45 BST (UK)  »
I'm wondering if anyone can help me as I have got a little confused and just unable to figure it out and wanted a fresh pair of eyes.

I'm looking into Harriett Louise twyford October 1864- April 1910
Father Francis R Twyford 1840 – 1907
Mother Margaret Evans 1838-1893

She married a man called Frederick Davey born 1846 possible in Essex
Frederick had children from previous marriage (as I don't think Harriett was given birth when she was 10 0r 12, well I can hope. I do believe they are all her step children) she got married when she was 26
Edward Davey 1874
Walter Davey 1878
Frances E Davey 1881-1921
Flora B A Davey 1884
Gertrude Davey 1886

For the life on me I am unable to find the mother of these children, when most of them died and when the father died.

Harriett also had 3 brother
Thomas William twyford 1970-1921
George Thomas twyford 1872- Unable to find a DOD
Walter twyford 1874-1952

Any help would be greatly appreciated...
