Yes I had done that and that was why I had tried to contact Neil.
 Names I am specifially looking for are Grace, Roger and Thomas Pellow, Grace Maddaford and Thomas and Joanne Walters.
   
As an aside, I note you have Squance on your name interest list. I am originally from Wilcove, Torpoint and I remember as a young person we had an older couple named Squance in the village.

Hi, I used the given link to send an enquiry in January and enquired again a few weeks later and didnt get a response. Neil has always been very helpful so I thought I'd ask here in case there was a problem. I was enquiring about any records for Pellow ( and varients)  and Walter  Particularly in Sourton.

Armed Forces / Gibraltar, families accompanying a service man
« on: Friday 02 April 21 15:55 BST (UK)  »
my Great Great Aunt Emma died about 6 weeks after childbirth in Gibraltar in 1891, her husband Richard was a serving soldier. They had 3 other children. Violet williams was Was born 18th March 1891 and Emma died 30 April 1891.
 I know the 1911 census covered service men abroad. Did  the 1891 census cover service men and their families abroad?

My friend W said her mother told her that he was either her grandfather or G grandfather and changed his name to Bennett,  so it would be 19th century. But I can follow her family back to late 1800's. Her mothers father was Fredrick James Bennett B:3 Aug 1867 Sandrige, Hertfordshire.

      I am about to check out other grandparents in case I am dealing with "chinese whispers", and really i was asking if anyone had come across this name as I am finding it difficult to find much.

Hertfordshire / Rudolphensen/ Rudolphsen

Rudolphensen/ Rudolphsen or similar
  I am trying to research this name for on older friend who tells me her mother told her there was a connection to this name, we believe to the Bennett part of the family who seem to be based in Hertfordshire. Possibly farmer from Germany who changed his name.

Anyone have any bright ideas??
