Ireland / Ireland 1871 census lookup
« on: Monday 29 November 21 23:10 GMT (UK)  »
Hi. Can anyone help please?
I'm looking for John Charles Rogers, born 1844 , Cheshunt / Watford, Hertfordshire , although that's only from census' as I've not yet found a  birth record that I'm 100% sure is his. Father is James Rogers b 1815, mother Mary Ann Munns b 1818
On the 1871 England and Wales census , his wife, Emma and 2 daughters Catherine A and Sophia are in Cheshunt.
Emma is  Head and there appears to be a note in the occupation column which says her husband is a haybinder working in Ireland. Can anyone help finding him on the 1871 census in Ireland please?
The family name ROGERS appears to change to RODGERS somewhere in the early 1900's.

Tried to attach a .jpg file and when I hit post got the message "an attachment with this name already exists. Please rename the file and try again.
It now won't seem to let me post without an attachment, and I still get the same message when I try.
Any ideas please?

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / One tun Ragged School,5, Westminster Buildings

Hi. I've found a 1898 burial record for. John William Rogers ,age 4. Address is 5 Westminster Buildings.
It appears that in 1898 this was not only a school , but housing for families as well as a workingman's club of sorts ,which had moved from a former derelict pub, The One Tun on Perkins Rents , to Westminster Buildings on Pye Street, where it became known as The One Tun Mission.
Apparently the area was known as The Devil's slum.

I found the resource above to search the 1901 census for institutions which were enumerated separately from the regular census, but not sure what the Rg number would be.
I'll look at the regular census.
Looking for the surname Rogers.

Surrey Lookup Requests / 25 Loughboro St ,1891 census
« on: Tuesday 09 November 21 11:40 GMT (UK)  »
Hi. I have an 1893 Lambeth Workhouse admission  record which says the person was as servant and admitted by her Master and the address is 25 Loughboro St ,followed by perhaps off Kennington Lane.
Pretty sure that the person was resident with her father in 1891, but there's some doubt about whether that's the correct person,so curious to see who was at 25 Loughboro St on the 1891 census , but I'm struggling to find the record.
Very grateful for any help.

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Sophia Rogers
« on: Wednesday 20 October 21 23:32 BST (UK)  »
Hi
Charles Ernest ROGERS b July 3rd 1891 Lambeth
A record of illegitimate births  ( Ancestry categorises it  as a parish record but I believe it's a record of births in the Workhouse) states mother's name Sophia Rogers.
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/imageviewer/collections/1558/images/31362_189886-01031?pId=300045661
The same type of  record for a John William Rogers , mother Sophia Rogers, b May 24th 1893.
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/imageviewer/collections/1558/images/31362_189886-00114?pId=37227
In a search for Sophia Rogers b around 1870 , London, Ancestry has  thrown up a record  from London Workhouse admissions, however I can't look at the detail to see if it matches.
I know this is definitely the Charles I'm looking for info on, as the date of birth matches the 1939 register where he's  with his wife whom he married in 1914.
Would be grateful if anyone could help.
The  story was that he told people he came over from Ireland with his brother to join the military aged about 15, but this would appear to be incorrect and there's nobody as surprised as his grandaughter who I'm doing the research for.

World War One / Records help
« on: Saturday 02 October 21 12:14 BST (UK)  »
Hi. I have a 1921 military  record for Charles Ernest Rodgers b 1891. Regiment  is the RFA, rank gunner and his number is 58454. At the time he was living in Fence Houses, Durham. The location and year  of of birth  are how I know that the record  refers to the person I'm searching for info' about.
I know little else definite about him prior to this military record, but he MAY have been born in Ireland and come over to England with 2 brothers to join the military when he was aged about 15, so around 1906.
He married in Fence Houses in 1914, but I can't find him on the 1911 census in Fence Houses.
I did find a London parish birth record for a Charles Ernest ROGERS JULY 3RD 1891 , mother Sophia ROGERS. No father listed. The document does record whether legitimate or illegitimate, but that info hasn't been transcribed onto the ancestry record and the image of the doc is chopped off so I can only see the first few letters ,which I think are " ILL.."
I wasn't sure from the record if these were poor law union records or not? Also not sure what images I'm  allowed to post here.
Any help greatly appreciated

Cumberland Lookup Requests / Hannah Thompson 1863 lunacy patients admission register
« on: Sunday 29 December 19 17:29 GMT (UK)  »
My step 2nd great grandfather's first wife was Hannah Thompson nee Lee born 1835 in Stanhope,Weardale England.
Her last child was born in 1861 and she died in 1863.
Ancestry threw up a hint for an 1863 admission to a lunatic asylum in Cumberland for a Hannah Thompson and I was wondering if it was her but don't have access to those records.

Devon Lookup Requests / 1939 register -Isabella BRADBURY
« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 20:12 BST (UK)  »
Isabella Bradbury b 1880 Lancashire, d 1946 Nottingham.
She was definitely in Devon in 1911, 1916, 1923-7 and 1930.
Possibility that she was a nurse but I've not been able to get any hard proof of that.
I can't find her on the 1939 register or military records on Ancestry.
Any help greatly appreciated. ;)
