Australia / The Peacock family
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 13:03 GMT (UK)  »
George Joseph Peacock born 1855 Bristol. Parents George and Matilda Peacock.  In 1881 he marries Ellen Cullimore born 1859 Bath Somerset.  In the 1870's George may of served 2 short prison sentences for thief.  George and Ellen had 2 children Sacie Alma born 1886 and Frank born 1890, both born in New South Wales Australia. By 1891 the family are living in Bristol UK.

Can find no record of George and Ellen going to Australia, was George transported if so would Ellen go with him??

Would love to know what happened between 1881 to 1891

Any help would be appreciated


Gloucestershire / Where do I go from here?
« on: Friday 23 November 18 10:38 GMT (UK)  »
Emma Richards born 1831 (c) Castle Precincts, Bristol, parents Philemon and Emma Richards.  Can find very little information on Emma, but did find a possible death in 1846.  Obtained via the GRO a death certificate for Emma which is rather disappointing. Writing hard to read, witness present at death is a Mary Ann Richards who I have no idea who she could be.  The only encouraging bit of information was the area  Castle Precincts, Bristol.
So where do I go from here?

Should mention she is on the 1841 census with her 2 brothers George and William and father Philemon.

Any help will be appreciated


The Common Room / Abit of a mystery
« on: Thursday 08 November 18 16:44 GMT (UK)  »
I know I very likely never find out (unless I order a certificate but this person is so distant from my direct line I do not feel I can cover the cost)

George Albert Jefferies born 1921 Wandsworth, on the 1939 register he is a widower, he gets married again in 1940 to a Doris Crosby. Have found a marriage for George in 1936 to a Minnie V Leek who appears to have died in 1939 but in Bristol, why? the death was registered there. There is a 4th person on the 1939 register which could be a son also called George I found on the FreeBMD site born 1937, another child Maureen died age 0, mother's name was Leek.  Minnie was born in Greenwich and the continued to live there.  George Jefferies senior, did have relatives back in Bristol but that was back in the 1820's 


United States of America / Pamela Lewis
« on: Thursday 08 November 18 08:11 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for information on Pamela Joan Lewis born 1919 Winchester Hampshire UK, parents Henry and Edith Lewis.  Sometime I do not know which year Pamela moved to the USA, married and divorced and eventually returned to England. Pamela died in 1986.

I do not have access to world records on ancestry so hoping someone can help.

Any information given will be appreciated


Gloucestershire / William Gardner
« on: Sunday 28 October 18 07:27 GMT (UK)  »
William Gardner born 1851 Hawkesbury, parents Lewis and Elizabeth Gardner.  In 1872 William married Mary Ann Wait.  On the 1881 census William seems to be married to Harriet but cannot find a suitable death for Mary Ann

Any help would be appreciated.

United States of America / The Chappell family
« on: Saturday 27 October 18 07:38 BST (UK)  »
Looks very likely this family moved to America in the 1860's

Sarah Jane Gardner b 1847 Hawkesbury Gloucestershire, parents Lewis and Elizabeth Gardner.  Sarah married Luke Chappell in 1865 Hawkesbury.  After that year ancestry gives entries referring to the USA which I do not have access to.

Any help would be appreciated
