Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / Marriage of Turner and Doyle
« on: Wednesday 24 February 16 02:25 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there,

So today I got a birth certificate for Ann Turner b 15th February 1850 in Leeds (Quarry Hill RD) born to William Turner who was an iron worker (b 1828 Newport, Shropshire) and Ellen Doyle (b 1830 Ashton-U-Lyne, Lancashire).  I can't find either of them on the 1851 census - but I expected them to still be in Leeds.  In 1861 and 1871 I can see them in Oldham.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

rchadz :)

Can anyone help me find any details such as Edward's father's occupation from this marriage above?

I understand his father's name was Daniel, but there are three options, a weaver, a hatter and a mill owner that I need to decide between.

Many thanks,  rchadz

Lancashire Lookup Requests / John William Hyde missing
« on: Monday 12 January 15 20:13 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

I am looking for John William Hyde b. 1869 Ashton U Lyne, Lancashire, England and married to Betty Ann Farrow.  I cannot find his death registered in the UK records.

He is showing on the 1891 census with his wife and 2 children but thereafter disappeared from my searching.  On his daughter's marriage certificate 1908 he is is listed as deceased and on the 1901 and 1911 census Betty is listed as living with her parents John & Esther - status = married (not widowed).  Funnily enough a new son John pops in there in 1911 which is odd if the father was deceased prior to 1908.

Did he leave the UK?  Did he die without being registered? 

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards, rchadz  :)

Aberdeenshire / Looking for the right George Angus
« on: Sunday 07 July 13 08:09 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,

We have a few documents about my Great-Great Grandfather Alexander Angus but we need help.

On his marriage certificate from Wharfedale, Yorks 22 Feb 1873 it says Alexander's father is George Angus = Farm Labourer   We have researched his censuses 1881-1911 in the UK and in 1911 it says he was born in Udny, Aberdeenshire.  His birth date appears to be around 1853.  However, I cannot locate an Alexander born to George around these dates. 

We have researched Alexander on the Scottish census in 1861 and 1871 and in both the only viable options have him living away from his parents, not sure why?

Can anyone help me find my George Angus?

Regards,  Rchadz :)

Thanks so much, rchadz

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Which Betty Chadderton?
« on: Sunday 16 January 11 02:43 GMT (UK)  »
My Betty Chadderton of Oldham shows on a 1841 census with her 2 children that were born out of wedlock, and living with her second son in 1851, and then she disappears.  I have had no success finding her death date.

I am trying to find which Betty of the 3 children with same name born 1811-1813 would be her.

The parents names were James & Esther (1811), Joseph & Sarah (1813) and Joseph and Ann (1810).

I thought if I found all Betty marriages from say 1828-1838 I could discover the parents names and eliminate the Betty's that married.  It is possible that Betty married after 1851 too.

I have 14 Sep 1835 Betty Chadderton married George Burgess (film# 1656119, p287) or 06 Mar 1837 Betty Chadderton married William Wild (film# 1545714).  Can anyone look at these films and tell me the parents names so I can eliminate the wrong Betty's - or can a more advanced family history buff give me some more ideas on how I can find my Betty?

Thanks so much,

Rick Chadderton

Cheshire Lookup Requests / Birth entry - Swindells Stockport
« on: Wednesday 11 August 10 13:17 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone help me find an entry for Emma or Emily Swindells b 1843 in Bramall/Stockport to Thomas and Jemima Swindells (formerly Pott)?  This is based on 1851 census information.

I previously searched on FreeBMD and got a certificate for an Emma in 1845 but the parents were wrong.

best regards,  rchadz  :)

Hi can anyone find a marriage of Thomas Swindells amd Jemima ??? about 1835.  Their first child was Elizabeth born 1836, just before registration.  The two show on the 1841 and 1851 census with birth year of about 1816 +-2 yrs.

Thanks for your help, rchadz :)
