Northumberland Lookup Requests / John William Irving any info
« on: Thursday 10 July 14 12:42 BST (UK)  »
I am having trouble finding John William Irving before 1911,   I have found John William aged 36 in the 1911 Census with his wife Ellen aged 32 and son John Lawrence aged 3 6/12 and daughter Alice Eleanor aged 2 6/12  but cannot find John William with his parents anywhere.  On the 1911 census it shows he was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne.

I am in Australia so would appreciate any help with any info at all, census,  marriage etc.

Best Regards

Northumberland Lookup Requests / 1891 and 1901 Census Lookup
« on: Friday 27 June 14 05:47 BST (UK)  »

Could SKS  do a lookup on the  1891 & 1901 Census for a George Wilson Ritchie born about 1877 Northumberland....I think it could have been Newcastle Upon Tyne.   His parents were Joseph Ritchie b. about 1852....Elizabeth nee Wilson b. about 1855.

I think I found him in 1911 Census   aged 32  living with his wife Margate or  Margaret  at his brother in laws place at 304 Sheilds Rd  Newcastle upon Tyne.

Appreciate any help,  thanking you in advance.

Kind Regards

Northumberland Lookup Requests / 1891 & 1901 Ritchie Look up please
« on: Monday 16 January 12 00:31 GMT (UK)  »
 I am trying to trace  Joseph & Elizabeth Ritchie after 1881 Census,  could SKS please do a look up please.

In 1881
Joseph 29 & Elizabeth Ritchie 28 (nee Wilson)
Thomas Ritchie 5
George Wilson Ritchie 3
Annie Isabella 1 month

lived at Burn Cottages  Long Benton

Joseph's occ was Cellarman

I have looked every where,  I wonder if they went to Ireland as I had a free trial of Ancestry and found a entry for a Caroline Wilson b.1881 Belfast Antrim
Fathers name George Wilson
Mothers name Elizabeth Ritchie Wilson

 Elizabeth's maiden name was Wilson and thought it may have a connection.   Maybe Joseph died and Elizabeth remarried.

Appreciate any help

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / langham in 19911
« on: Monday 30 August 10 02:44 BST (UK)  »
I know you can't give out details about 1911 Census 

But would SKS do a look up and just let me know if the census  shows Thomas Lawrence Langham married to Elizabeth was born in America and what children they had.  They were married in 1901 in London. 

We have been told he was born in America and cannot find him any where in the UK before 1901.

If you cannot do this due to copyright no worries.

Thank you for your help in this if you can help.

Appreciate this group so much.


Cumberland / ages of witnesses in 1883
« on: Sunday 22 August 10 13:02 BST (UK)  »
Could SKS help me, 

In 1883 in Wigton Cumberland

What age could you be to be a witness to a marriage. Trying to find witnesses to gg-grandparents but knowing their ages might help to find them to rule out if too young.

Appreciate any help.


Northumberland Lookup Requests / Marriage lookup Taylor/Holland Newcastle
« on: Thursday 15 July 10 05:00 BST (UK)  »
Could SKS please do a look up in Newcastle Upon Tyne for the marriage of Elizabeth Taylor (nee Beattie - widowed 1890 Wigton)   to Henry Holland 1892.

I was told she married a Henry Holland

The only Elizabeth Taylor & Henry Holland I found is a couple who have been married for years.   I got the chance one morning at 4-30am  to get on the Find My Past website while England were playing in the world cup it was FREE,   But could not find the couple I wanted. 

Hoping someone can  help me.
Thanking you in advance.
