Ireland / Mary Boyle - DOB: 02.09.1927
« on: Sunday 04 August 19 23:16 BST (UK)  »

Can anyone help me find a birth for Mary Boyle - DOB: 02.09.1927.

At some point she went to live in Manchester and gave birth to a daughter (Catherine Boyle) in February 1957, who was then baptised on the 13.03.1957 at St Thomas of Canterbury in Manchester.

Apart from this I don't have any other details.

It would be amazing if I could find any other details regarding her.

Thank you for any help that anyone may be able to give.

Best wishes


London and Middlesex / Ada Brooks born 1902 Sturminster
« on: Sunday 22 April 18 00:17 BST (UK)  »

I wonder if anyone could help me please.

The above was my great aunt.

She lived in Trent Park in the 1911 census with my great grandparents and family.  She was born in Stalbridge in Dorset in 1902 and had a son called Leonard in 1934 in Hampstead, London.

All of my family said that Ada married and one day a lady knocked the door to say that she couldn't be married to the man she married as she was already married to him and he was a bigamist.  My grandmother said this broke her heart and so when Leonard was born she registered him under her maiden name Brooks.  The man went to prison and at the time this was reported in the News of the World and other papers.  She never saw him again.

Ada died in Berkshire in 1989, never married or met another man again.

I cannot find a marriage for Ada, my mum and aunt thinks she married in London somewhere.

If the marriage was not valid as he was a bigamist would the marriage still be registered or not?  Just wondered if that is why I can't find the marriage, but it is more difficult as Leonard did not have his father listed on his birth certificate.

Can anyone help me in finding this please?

Thank you.

Lincolnshire / Elizabeth 'Jean' Wallis born 12.03.1933
« on: Wednesday 30 August 17 22:44 BST (UK)  »
Hi all

I wonder if anyone can help me find this person in my tree, I am completely stumped by this one.

She was apparently born in Kent ??  her mum was called Margery/Majorie Wallis (nee Scuthum) but when she was very young moved to Lincolnshire somewhere.  Had 2 siblings called Roger and Janet not sure of their birth years.

I cannot find a birth for her at all.

She married a Jack Smith at some point (which I also cannot find).

She died in Reading on 13.11.2007 (name was Elizabeth Jean Smith) - I cannot find a death either.

I cannot find a marriage for her mother to a Wallis.

I cannot find her siblings either.

It is all a mystery - I have never been not able to find a whole family.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Many thanks.


Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Sidney Gardner
« on: Wednesday 23 August 17 23:15 BST (UK)  »

I wonder if anyone can help me please.  I am looking for the birth of Sidney Gardner (according to the 1939 census his birthday was 25.03.1903).

I also know from his marriage to Alice May Hartley in 1935 that his father's name was Thomas.

I cannot find a birth for him though. 

There is a 1911 census record with a Sidney Gardener with a Thomas as a father but states born Aldershot in 1906.

I am not sure if this is the same Sidney.  The only clue I have is that I do know Sidney had a sister called Daisy and there is also a Daisy listed on the 1911 census record.

Any other clues as to whether this is the correct one as I still cannot find a birth for him in either 1906 or 1903.  I know the 1911 census may be approximate dates as they often were but as the 1939 date of birth is very precise.

They did live in Farnham in later years.

There is also a death in 1967 for a Sidney Gardner but that lists his year of birth as 1905 and doesn't state the month or day.

Any clues would be gratefully received.

Thank you.

Berkshire Lookup Requests / John Musselwhite born 1876 Cookham
« on: Sunday 15 January 17 22:00 GMT (UK)  »
Dear All

I wonder if anyone can help me at all - I am wondering if anyone has access to the marriage records of John Musselwhite to Ellen Cook - I know it was on the 17th October 1896 at Stubbings Church, Near Maidenhead, Berkshire but cannot find the marriage Banns for this.

I am trying to establish where/details of Ellen Cook.  She was born around 1876 and according to the 1911 census was from Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire.  I cannot find a birth, previous census records or anything for her - can't find either John or Ellen in the 1891, 1901 or 1939 census records.  They were both still alive until the 1950's so should be somewhere.

My dad thinks her father was a William Cook - but trying to do a standard search for Ellen or William brings up 100's of names but cannot find any for Hertfordshire.  My dad thought that they were from Maidenhead, Berkshire but again I cannot find anything. (My dad said Ellen's father was a builder in Maidenhead).

Can anyone help at all please.

Many thanks if you can help in anyway.

Kind regards

Hi, wondered if anyone can help me.  I am looking for a baptism record for Edward Albert Curtis.  I believe that he was born in Theale (birth record says Bradfield which covers the Theale area).

Does any one have access to Theale Parish Records at all please - if so I am trying to establish if his parents were Albert & Ethel.

If someone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you.
