The Common Room / Germans to America
« on: Monday 23 July 07 16:39 BST (UK)  »
Just for anyones info: there is a programme on TV on Wednesday evening (part 1 of a 2 part series) about Germans emigrating to the USA. As it is German TV, it will all be in German. However I thought I'd offer to record it if anyone is interested. Send me a PM, and we can sort things out that way.



Completed Census Requests / 1871 LLEWELYN DAVIES
« on: Friday 29 June 07 13:08 BST (UK)  »

after a lot of searching, I found the family I was looking for in 1881, living at 34 Dorset Sq, London.

As it appears several children have already left home at this time, I'm now looking for the same family in 1871. Can anyone help?

John L. Davies, 55 (born 1826), Chichester, Sussex, Rector of Christ Church
Mary, wife, 46, born Childwell, Lancs,
Margaret C DAvies, U, 19, Marylebone, College Student Cambridge
Crompton Davies, 12 Marylebone
Theodore Davies, 10, Marylebone.

Also with them in 1881 was the mother in law and 10 servants.



Caernarvonshire Lookup Requests / 1841 - Williams family, Llanllyfni.
« on: Friday 18 May 07 10:56 BST (UK)  »
From a marriage cert I received yesterday, I am now looking for an entry in the 1841 census for Llanllyfni, Caernarfonshire.

The family is Griffith Williams, a farmer of Bron Turner (probably farm name, taken from Marriage cert.), Llanllyfni. His daughter Elizabeth married in 1849. She was born in 1831, also in Llanllyfni.

I don't have any further info about Griffith, nor his wife nor any other children.

Can anyone help?

Census Lookup and Resource Requests / NBI lookup for Whinyates
« on: Friday 26 January 07 11:00 GMT (UK)  »
Sarah Elizabeth Whinyates, nee Crompton, died on 28th April 1828, less than a year after she had married.

Her husband, General Sir Edward Charles Whinyates died on 25.12.1865 in Cheltenham.

However, he is not buried there, although all his brothers are.

Could somebody possibly look them up in the NBI, see if they are entered? I've a feeling that they could possibly be either in Yorkshire or Derbyshire, as this is where Sarah's family comes from.

Carmarthenshire Completed Requests / FAO David Pinkey - CMN PR lookup
« on: Friday 17 November 06 11:57 GMT (UK)  »
Hi David,

thanks for the offer. I only have the one request, but this brickwall has been around now for about 3 years. It would be great to start chipping away at it.

I'm looking for the baptism of a John Evans, son of Evan and Elinor Evans, in Conwil Caio.

His ages vary from census to census:
1841: 14 (1827)
1851: 30 (1821)
1860 (marriage): 32 (1828)
1861: 32 (1829)
1871: 50 (1821)
1881: 60 (1821)
1891: 70 (1821)
1901: 75 (1826)
1905 (burial): 76 (1829)

However there is only one John Evans in the 1841 census for Caio, with father Evan. They are living at Henffordd, Conwil Caio. Evan is a cooper, which seems to confirm I have the correct family, as John was also a cooper. I presume such a trade would be passed from father to son.

To be on the safe side, here are Johns siblings (John was the eldest):
David b:1828; Mary- b1831; James 1833; Elenor 1837; Elizabeth 1838; Anne 1841; Thomas 1843; Daniel 1844; Jane 1845 and Lettice 1850.

Assuming the second son's age is correct, then John's birth would be about 1826 ish.

I hope thats enough to find the right one - I'm not sure though whether the family were non conformist or not.

If you also have time/chance, the marriage of Evan and Elinor would be gratefully received ;-)

Send me a PM if anything is unclear.

Much obliged.
