Cheshire / Samuel Dickens or Dicken of Pownall Fee
« on: Sunday 28 October 18 00:49 BST (UK)  »

I am helping a friend with research into her family and we are stuck on a line. Her 4x times great grandfather was named Samuel Dickens born in 1837 in Pownall Fee to a Samuel Dickens or Dicken who was married to a woman named Hannah. We have found them in the 1841 and 1851 census, but can find absolutely no trace of a marriage between them. Itís interesting to see that their first son was born in 1837 when Samuel was about 56 years old and Hannah was about 41. If anyone can help find a marriage between these 2 we would be very greatful!

Thank you

Devon Lookup Requests / Susan Dalling & William Bale
« on: Sunday 11 June 17 02:08 BST (UK)  »
I am currently researching my husband's family tree and these 2 have been a sticking point for me. All I know is that Susan was born around 1801 and died in December 1849 in Atherton in Devon and William was born about 1808 somewhere in Devon. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it.  :)

Other Countries / Wilde - India
« on: Wednesday 19 February 14 10:25 GMT (UK)  »
I have been searching for a long time (years) for my 3x great grandmother who was born somewhere in the East Indies most probably India. Her name was Helena Rebecca Lucy Wilde and I believe she was born around 1857. She married a man named George Green in 1880 in Brighton Sussex and they appear there in the 1881 Census. They immigrated to Australia in 1883 and she died in 1924. Her father was apparently named James Wilde (according to her marriage record). Her death record gives no parents names. She has always been a rather interesting character in our family tree and I would like to know more if possible. There was a family story that her father was a man of some means and that as his only child she inherited all of his estate. When she died in 1924 her will went into probate and she owned a bit of land in Australia (her name only - not her husband who was still living)

If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

England / Danslow - Surname
« on: Sunday 16 February 14 00:59 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone

I was just wondering if anyone else might have come across this surname in their research. This is actually information for my partner's family tree. I have a Charles James Danslow born in abt 1852 and who died in Victoria, Australia in 1900. I believe they came from the UK. Danslow seems a very unusual name to me and I am wondering if perhaps it was orginally Denslow?? If anyone could shed any light that would be great


Lancashire Lookup Requests / Liverpool - Winstanley
« on: Sunday 16 February 14 00:55 GMT (UK)  »
Hi everyone

I am looking for a John Winstanley who was born abt 1838 in Liverpool. He died in Australia in 1894 and his death certificate states his parents were named John Winstanley and Amelia. I have searched around and I can't find his parents anywhere. I am pretty sure Amelia is correct as his mother's name because he went onto use that name for his first born daughter.

If anyone could help that would be great.


Australia / Death Record Lookup - John James Shonhan
« on: Saturday 18 January 14 09:49 GMT (UK)  »
Hi guys

I am having a problem finding a death record in Australia for John James Shonhan, I have searched all the BMD's but cannot find anything. I believe this may be due to a miss spelling of his name. I did see something on Ancestry but don't have a current membership. Would anyone be able to look this up for me?

Buckinghamshire Lookup Requests / Salmon Craft - Lookup Request
« on: Saturday 19 May 12 03:50 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for a baptism record for my 5x great-grandfather Salmon Craft. Despite his unusual name so far I have had no luck tracing any records of his birth. I believe he was born around 1777 in Buckinghamshire probably around Chalfont St Giles. I know he married Ann Welch in 1802 in London but other than that I cannot find any information on him. If anyone could help I would really appreciate it.
