I finished putting flesh on the bones this afternoon
John Thomas was my gggrandfather, John Richard was my grandfather and John Thomas was my dad so you see what trouble I have when just their first name is put down.
So far I have on the 1901 census-:
John Thos. 39 yrs.  coal miner hewer born Darton
Annie 38 yrs. born Heckmondwhite
Maud A 16yrs. Warehouse fustain cutter Bretton West
John Richard 15 yrs. Lab. in glass bottle works Bretton West
Joseph N 14 yrs. born Barugh Green
George R 12 yrs born Kexborough
Norina 3 years born Barnsley
Living with them at this time is JTC's sister Annie E aged 26 years born at Darton

I got them on the 1891 census as Anna posted.

On the 1881 census there are a couple who could fit the same as BMD site has 2 or 3 that could be him, but at the minute it's after midnight and he's giving me a head ache :) so I'm off to bed.

Thanks to all of you who answered my posting and speak to you soon, Anne.

Hello Howard,

The only marriage index I have for Crowle is 1813 to 1837 and John and Mary are not in it.
However in the Baptism index there are these entries:
Jane dau. of John and Mary 27th Apr. 1800
John Boston son of John and Mary 12th Jan. 1798
Joseph son of John and Mary 26th Feb. 1807
Mary dau. of John and Mary 14th. Mar. 1812

I hope you can find a home somewhere for these little ones. :)

All the best, Anne.

I removed e-mail as you suggested. When I sent the message to Roger it didn't come up on the list, I don't know what I did different this time.
Yes it's .com at the end.

I don't know if you are in contact with Roger but I gave him my e-mail addressbecause it makes it easier to send  scan listsand the like. If you don't want me to know your e-mail I quite understand.

I also told Roger that I live in Scunthorpe which is only about 10 miles from Epworth so all the parish records are in our Library. Unfortunately I went today to look up the census and Baptism records and the council staff are on strike so I was not amused. You get all fired up to do something and end up feeling like a lead balloon :(  Oh! well there's another day.

All the best, Anne.

Thank you all for your help and input you never know what you might find in old records, even if it's only that you need stronger glasses :)

Let's hope the bit of luck holds after 15 years at this lark I sometimes think that maybe that's the most helpful.
All the best, Anne.
