Stirlingshire / Re: Stumped over two dates
« on: Today at 03:14 »
William Stevenson was indeed born 29th October but in 1902 (ref.488/2 207) not 1904.


Matthew Scott married Rebecca Gordon 22/12/1859 Dromore, Co Down.

So looks like John Scott was born in Co. Down, Ireland (both the above died there).


Northumberland / Re: William Morrison

Is with son in law in 1939 but birthdate given as 15/9/1857??

However, his birth certificate gives birthdate as 30/9/1859 (not 3rd).

Can you tell us where you've found John in 1901/1911, who his parents were?  Having trouble finding his family to collaborate your findings.


Transcribed on FindMyPast as Pinegar and there do indeed seem to people with this surname in Gloucestershre parish records.   Have looked at original page and does indeed look like Pinegar to me.


What about the Eliza Pope Goodman b.6/1/1799, bp.14/7/1799 St. Dunstan in the West, dau.of Jonathan and Mary.  Address given as Chancery Lane which seems to be midway between St. Dunstan in the West and St. George Hanover Square (just 2 miles apart).

You'll need fathers name from 1849 marriage to confirm (or not).


George Robinson and Eliza Marsh married Sept. qtr. 1849 Derby - marriage took place in register office so no details online.   You'd have to purchase copy of the marriage certificate.


Norfolk Lookup Requests / Re: Francis Norton. Born 1791. Norfolk?

Looked at records for Tasburgh - found a Henry Norton, widower otp married Ann Ellis, widow, 15/12/1799 Tasburgh.

No burials there, no baptisms in name of Norton but then checked under christian name of Francis and found:

Francis Norton Ellis bp.29/11/1789 Tasburgh, son of Ann Ellis.

So looks like Francis Norton was indeed born in Tasburgh but 10 years before his parents got round to marrying.


Surrey / Re: Looking for Tony Brett

I read the obituary as sister of Maggie, Millie, Joyce and the late Tony and Frances (i.e. 5 siblings) all in being in UK.

i.e. Maggie - Margaret Amy born 1918 (d.1992)
     Millie - Millicent Edith born 1911 (died 2002)
     Joyce Amelia born 1925 (died 2014)
     Tony (?) (deceased pre 1991)
     Frances Ada born 1922, (d.1976)

Doris Emily did indeed have 5 siblings, and 2 were indeed deceased by 1991 - Frank Walter in 1968 and Frances Ada in 1976.

I still feel 'Tony' was a nickname for Frank Walter - I note he and wife Maude are shown as having one child on your tree (living).   Have you tried tracing this person to see if FW was indeed also known as Tony?
