Lancashire / John Dean & Elizabeth Lynch
« on: Tuesday 25 January 22 13:04 GMT (UK)  »
John Dean (b. abt. 1833 Manchester) married Elizabeth Lynch (b. abt 1841 Ireland, King’s County) on 6 Sept 1869 (St Mary, St Denys and St George, Manchester).

John Dean (16 Strand Street) was a Sawyer. Father James Dean (Printer).
Elizabeth Lynch (15 Higginston Street). Father Edward Lynch (Butcher)

In 1881 they were at 16 Peter Street, Hulme, Lancs. with children John 11 and Mary 10. In 1891 they were at 6 Beech Square, Hulme with children John and Mary.

John was employed as a Wood Sawyer.

I can’t find either of them in the 1871 census or with their families before they were married. Can you help please?

Family History Beginners Board / Henry and Priscilla Maunder
« on: Friday 10 December 21 14:18 GMT (UK)  »
Henry Maunder (b. Newton Ferrers, Devon - 1819-1898) married Priscilla Tamblin (b. Hubberston, Pembroke, Wales - 1831–1911) on 1 Nov 1848 at Ebinezer Chapel, Margate, Isle of Thanet, Kent.  Henry was possibly stationed at the Coast Guard Station, Ramsgate at the time.

Henry was a mariner from 1842 to 1872, serving as a Boatman - Coastguard from 1847-1854 and 1856-1872 (ref. UK, Naval Officer and Rating Service Records).

They had 14 children between 1850 and 1878, the first 3 in England, 1 in Wales, the other 11 in Northern Ireland.

Henry died on 23 Sept 1898 (14 Percy Street, Shankill, Belfast, Northern Ireland).

In 1901 Priscilla lived at Roe, Clifton, Antrim, Ireland with son Francis Maunder.  In 1911 she lived at 22 Northumberland Street, Wood Vale Ward, Antrim, Ireland with daughter Anne (Gibson) and her family.

She died on 18 May 1911 in Belfast, Antrim.

Henry and Priscilla were obviously together several times between 1848 and 1898 but I’m unable to find any records. Can you help please?

Family History Beginners Board / Searching for Mary Livermore in 1881
« on: Thursday 02 December 21 11:55 GMT (UK)  »
In 1876 Edward Livermore (b. Terling, Essex 1850) married Mary Jane Bagnall (b. 1851 Stoke on Trent) in Egginton, Derbyshire. They had two sons: Edward John (b. 1877 Draycott-In-The-Clay, Staffs) and Charles Ernest (b. 1879 in Leicestershire).

In the 1881 census Edward snr. was employed as a Butler for John Bibby JP, a retired merchant in Calderstone Road, Allerton, Lancs.  His son Edward (aged 3), is listed as a boarder with William Roberts (Brewers Labourer) in Anslow, Burton Upon Trent, Staffs.

In the 1891 census Edward, (Market Gardener) was at Cropthorne, St John, Burstow, Surrey with his sons Edward (13) and Charles (12), his mother Sarah and sister Louisa.  His wife Mary Livermore was at Disney Place, St Peter in East Gate, Lincs. employed as a Servant - Cook, Housekeeper for Emily Melville.

In 1899 Edward snr died in Burton upon Trent, Staffs.

In the 1901 census Mary Livermore was employed as a Servant - Cook at Brocksford Hall, near Doveridge, Derbyshire, home of Charles W J Smith.  Edward jnr is in Anslow, Burton Upon Trent, Staffs, again boarding with Wm Roberts (Farmer), occ. General Farm Labourer.  Charles is a lodger at Upper Outwood Staffs, occ. Brewers Labourers.

I believe Mary died in 1903.

I’m unable to find an 1881 census record for Mary Jane Livermore or her son Charles.  Can you help please?

Family History Beginners Board / Searching for Henry James Turmeau
« on: Saturday 20 November 21 13:24 GMT (UK)  »
Henry James Turmeau (b. 1791Middlesex) married Charlotte Owen on 5 August 1820 in Westminster, Middlesex.

The 1841 census shows them at London Street, St Pancras, Middlesex with 5 children. Henry was a Jewellers Case Maker.

In 1851 a Henry Turmeau is listed in a Directory as a Carver & Gilder at 188 Tottenham Court Road – possibly Henry’s son, also Henry.

A record shows a Henry Turmeau entered Colney Hatch Asylum on 31 Dec 1851 and died there 17 May 1852.  I believe this is Henry’s son Henry William Charles (a Gilder) who married Eliza Pheby in 1847 (father Henry Turmeau, Jewel Case Maker).  Eliza Turmeau, a widow, married George Smith in 1855.

I can’t find any more records for Henry and Charlotte Turmeau. Can you help please?

Family History Beginners Board / George Brown and Annie Francis marriage
« on: Monday 15 March 21 10:43 GMT (UK)  »
I'm trying to find a marriage record for George Brown and Annie Francis/Frances (surname unknown). Please can you help?

George Brown (b. 25/3/1876 in Norbiton, London) is listed in the 1891 census at 551 Kings Road, Fulham, London with his parents & 5 siblings.

In 1897 George married Annie Francis (surname not found) who was born in London abt. 1876.

George and Annie had at least 3 children:

George William Brown (1899–1963)
Ellen Rose (or Nellie) Brown (1901–?)
Alfred Charles Brown (1905–?)

The 1901 census records George and Annie living at 7 Sotheron Road, Fulham, London and in 1911 at 121 Bath Road, Knowle, Bristol.

I'm researching Joel Curtis, also known as Joseph, (and also known commonly as Brimble) of Farmborough, Somerset.

Please can you help me to find a census record for 1871 and a marriage record.

He was baptised as Joel Curtis on 21 Apr 1844 in High Littleton, Somerset, England. He died on 16 August 1913 at the County Asylum, Wells, Somerset where he’s listed as ’Curtis - Joel or Joseph’.

His father was James Curtis who was also known commonly as James Brimble. (James’ mother Ann Curtis/Curtice had 4 sons when she was single, before she married William Brimble in 1813.)

The 1861 census records him as Joel Brimble, son of James Brimble.  He was living with his family in Farmborough, Somerset and was employed like his father James Brimble as a Coal Miner.

Around 1866 he married Ann.  Some trees on Ancestry list her as Ann Lansdown Sweet but without records to confirm this.

Their first child was born in Somerset, the next two in Wales, so likely that they were in Wales in 1871:

Birth of Daughter Levinia Curtis, 1867 • Clutton, Somerset, England
Birth of Son Joseph Curtis abt 1870 • Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, Wales
Birth of Son James Curtis abt 1872 • Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, Wales
Birth of Son Gomer Curtis, 1874 • Clutton, Somerset, England.

The 1881 census records him as Joseph Curtis living at Clutton Hill, Farmborough, Somerset with his wife Ann and 6 children, employed as a Coal Miner.

I have records after this date.

Thank you.

Census Lookup and Resource Requests / William Britton in the 39 Register
« on: Tuesday 26 January 21 12:18 GMT (UK)  »
I've been unable to find William Britton (1864–1954) in the 1939 Register. Can you help please?

In 1911 he lived at 4 Moravian Rd, Kingswood, Bristol with his wife Sarah Jane and 5 children.  Occupation - Bootmaker.

Sarah Jane died in 1935.

The only possible entry I found in 1939 looks wrong - William G Britton, listed as single, not widower, (b. 23 May 1864, retired butcher at 44 Chiphouse Road, Kingswood with E, J & E Pearse).
