Lanarkshire / Looking for John Stewart, born circa 1868 Lanarkshire
« on: Tuesday 04 January 22 17:33 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying, so far in vain, to find the birth (or baptism) of John Stewart, born (according to the 1871 census) around 1868, in Anderston, Lanarkshire. His parents were Walter Stewart and Sophia Strain. Help will be appreciated.

I have the marriage certificate of Edward Charles SEEGER and Jessie MANLEY, who married on 14 March 1875 in Bethnal Green. The address of the man is given as "3 31 Wellington House" and of the wife as "8 4 ditto". The couple had two children prior to this marriage: Edward, born 1869 Bethnal Green, and Jessie, born 1874 Bethnal Green. After their marriage, they got 5 more children.

I was wondering whether any of you know what Wellington House was. I do not see it in the listings of Poor Houses. Thank you for any suggestion what accommodation this pair lived in.

Down / birth/baptism sought of Arthur Fagan, around 1852 C. Down
« on: Monday 13 December 21 12:08 GMT (UK)  »
The couple Arthur Fegan (also spelled Fagan) and Catharine McClory married on 18-10-1839 in Newry, Co. Down. They get 13 children: first four in Annaghlone, Co Down (1841-1845), then four in Liverpool (1847-1854), and finally five in  Kilcoo, Co. Down.
I have found RC baptism records for all but one: Arthur, named after his father, who according to the census record of 1871 was born circa 1852 in Liverpool. Her married 8 July 1872 in Liverpool with Elizabeth Downes. Any help in finding the birth or baptism of this Arthur will be greatly appreciated.

Down / Marriage of Hugh Fegan and Mary Morgan, ca. 1809? Southtown
« on: Thursday 09 December 21 13:59 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find the marriage of Hugh Fegan and Mary Morgan. This couple has the following children, all baptized RC in parish Kilbroney, Co. Down:
Peter bp. 11-12-1808
John bp. 02-06-1811
Eleanor bp. 07-06-1813
Arthur bp. 28-09-1815
Patrick bp. 18-02-1821
Catherine bp. 10-08-1823.
At the first baptism, the mother is Mary Morgan. In later baptism, she is given as Mary Fegan. Does this mean that the couple was not yet married when Peter was born?
Other information about the parents is also welcome.

Wexford / Marriage sought of Frank Duffin and Anne Spellers, Wexford? around 1855?
« on: Wednesday 01 December 21 14:54 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find the marriage of the parents of William Duffin, RC baptized 27 May 1861, Parish St James and Hook, Wexford. His parents are given as Frank Duffin and Ann Spellers. (Family lore has it that that should be Ann Spillane.) The parents died 29 Sept 1878, and 22 Jan 1883, both in New Ross, Co. Wexford.

I am unable to find the marriage (and birth/baptism) of these parents. Any help will be appreciated.

I am looking for the birth of Ellen Winifred Mary JONES, who according to her death certificate was born on 18 Aug 1935 in Rudry South Wales. (She died 2 July 2009 in Penarth, Wales.)
I seem to be unable to locate her birth in the Freebmd files.
Also, I would be glad to find her marriage to Dennis Arlwyn JONES; date unknown.

Any help is appreciated.

I am trying to find the birth data of Ellen MULFORD.
I find her in the 1861 census, with parents Henry and Catherine, as born in 1852, with two brothers.
In the 1871 census, same birth year, two brothers and one sister.
I tried in vain to find Ellen in the GRO birth database. I did find her brothers and sister from 1871, which gave me the MMN of Nobes.

Ellen marries in 1871 George Ellis. I find her (as Ellen Ellis) in the 1939 "census" with DOB given as 12 Aug 1854.

Even with that additional information, I seem to be unable to find her birth in the GRO index. Any help is highly appreciated.

« on: Wednesday 03 November 21 12:23 GMT (UK)  »
Mary Ann Horrigan marries 25-12-1862 in London with William Bowman. According to census records, Mary Ann was born around 1842 in Kerry, Ireland. I am totaly unfamiliar with Irish genealogy and would be grateful if one of you could tell me when and where Mary Ann was born and who her parents were. Thank you.

I am trying in vain to find the death record of Beatrice Lilian Rutledge, born 17-11-1881 Hackney, who married 1898 in Hackney William Thomas WILKS. This husband died already in 1901. I have a handwritten note from unknown origin that claims that Beatrice Lilian died 1909 in Hackney, but I seem to be unable to find her. Can any of you?
