Lancashire / descendants of crowther family who in 1901 census lived in Oldham
« on: Tuesday 15 November 22 12:01 GMT (UK)  »
I have been looking for information about Sophia Crowther for about 10 years. tried roots chat about 6 years ago but got nowhere. I have now tried following through her siblings. Florence Crowther led to me Kathleen Barrett (who was born Clara Crowther). This led me to Nellie Devine (nee Crowther) who was the daughter of Lester Crowther. Nellie had a daughter Brenda Devine who had two marriages in the 1970's. Firstly not sure if i have the correct Brenda.   Last believed to live in St Helens area. Not sure if i am following the correct family. . would like to make contact to establish whether i am following the correct line or not. would appreciate some help

« on: Sunday 30 September 18 18:12 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to track the dependants of Joseph Isidore Solomons who died in 2007 in Cardiff. his wife was Dora Solomons (nee Hawthorn) who died in 2006. I believe they had a daughter in 1956 . I have a name but wont put it on here as she is probably still alive. I have an address 8 Waterloo Road, Cardiff, CF23 9BU. where they may have lived about 15 years ago.

If anyone can help it would be appreciated

Surrey / Benjamin arthur defries
« on: Tuesday 20 December 16 15:19 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all

I know that he was a twin born on 18th February 1922. His brother was Sidney Elias Defries. I have tracked Sidney's descendants but they don't know too much about Benjamin.

So Benjamin born in Bow Tower Hamlets 18th Feb 1922

Died Kingston Hospital 27th Feb 2001. Death cert witnessed by Sister in law (sidneys wife) now deceased

He was a civil servant and he or other family members lived at 59 Sandringham Road Worcester Park Surrey

What happened to him between 1922 and 2001. There is a Benjamin Arthur defries shown as getting married in 1970 , but this is the wrong person. Did he get married ? did he have any children? (if he did , why did sister in law appear on death cert)

1939 register shows family living at 185 Bow Common Lane Stepney

1974 death cert for his mother shows 59 sandringham road Worcester park as well.

I seem to have a lot of information but I am getting nowhere

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

London and Middlesex / Elias Jacobs, Mary Goulding ,Lillian Matilda and Elias
« on: Monday 14 November 16 15:03 GMT (UK)  »
I originally posted this in 2103 but got nowhere. Had a little more success since then but still need help

Elias Jacobs was the son of Matilda Jacobs(nee Marks) and John (known also as Jack or Jacob) Jacobs. He was born in Marylebone
Matilda and Jacob Jacobs were married 7/6/1865 (mar cert). Elias was born 28/2/1866 and Matilda died on the same date, obviously in childbirth.(have birth and death Cert). John Jacobs remarried in 1868 to Sarah Abrahams and had a further 11 children.

However it is Elias who I was originally interested in. However now I am looking for info on his wife and children

In the 1871 census Elias is living with his grandparents Lewis and Rachel Jacobs at 8 Ebenezer square Aldgate. John and his new family are living at 2 Ebenezer square
in the 1881 he appears as Chas(a badly written Elias?) still living with his grandparents but now at 131 Cambridge (Heath) Road Bethnal Green
1891 Cannot find trace in 1891 census. About this time he married Mary Goulding. But cannot find any record of the marriage. As no trace in census or marriage cert. I guess they were married abroad.
1901 census shows Elias Jacobs born in marylebone living at 22 Wolsey Street Mile End Old town with wife mary , children Lilly, Tilly and Elias.
1911 census shows Mary, Lillian, Matilda and Elias living at 12 George Place Mile end. Mary is shown as Head of family. Took me 3 years to find that Elias died 15/6/1911 ( d cert confirms address)

So I have Mary Born approx. 1974 in Chelsea. no b cert
Lillian (lilly) born approx. 1893 Newington Blackfriars no b cert
Matilda Margaret born 23/10/1896 5 Great Charlotte street St Saviours Southwark. Have b cert so Know that Goulding is correct
Elias born approx. 1899 Stepney no b cert

Any help would be appreciated

Morris Gross aka Simelman was my wife's grandfather. He married her grandmother Rachel Entin 8th June 1919 in Leeds. Just applied for marriage cert. to see that Morris was shown as a widower on the cert.

He married Sophia Crowther on 23rd December 1908.They had a son Sam Simelman in 1910 , who died in 1911. 1911 census shows Morris Gross ,Sophia Gross and Clara Crowther (Sophia's sister) living at 60 Charlotte Street Broughton Salford.

No trace of Sophia after that. checked deaths under Gross, Simelman and Crowther

Lancashire / lewis. fanny and morris goldstone
« on: Tuesday 09 July 13 21:41 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to trace the Lewis , Fanny and Morris Goldstone. I believe Lewis and Morris were brothers of my grandfather Solomon Gelser ?. Fanny Goldstone was the wife of Lewis. It is only in the last few weeks that I have been aware that my grandfather had any siblings

I believe Lewis and Morris were born in Russia . Came to England about 1890
No record in 1901 census but in 1911 census Louis and Fanny and 5 children are living at 32 Caroline Street Broughton Salford. Still following through info on the 5 children

I have death cert for Lewis Goldstone 5/7/1919 still at Caroline Street. Informant was Morris Goldstone ,Brother, 28 Ruskin Street. Having trouble finding Ruskin Street

I have death cert for Fanny Goldstone, nee Maltomeister?, 12/1/1933 still at Caroline street. Informant was son Simon.

I can find two deaths of a Morris Goldstone. one in 1928 and one in 1941. I think 1928 is more likely.

Any info would be appreciated

1891 census shows an Elias Jacobs as a bus conductor lodging in a boarding house. But this must be someone else
1901 census shows Elias Jacobs born in marylebone living at 22 Wolsey Street Mile End Old town with wife mary , children Lilly, Tilly and Elias. This could be him
1911 census. nothing so far

Any help would be appreciated
