Norfolk Lookup Requests / James Cotter, 1861 and 1871
« on: Sunday 07 November 21 08:32 GMT (UK)  »
James Cotter was born in Norwich c.1852 (though I can't find a birth record).  He was in Hull by 1878, marrying Rebecca Speed, and I can trace him there from 1881 onwards, but I can't locate him on the earlier censuses.  Help would be appreciated.

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) Lookup Requests / William Arthur Hodgson
« on: Wednesday 29 September 21 11:23 BST (UK)  »
Where was William Arthur Hodgson in 1891 and 1901?
He was born in Hull c.1862 and by 1881 he was living with his parents and working as a cabinet maker.  He next turns up marrying Jane Anne Harper in 1884, and in February 1901 there's a bankruptcy notice in the Edinburgh Gazette which lists him as a cabinet maker living at 15 North Walls and Perrett St, Hull.  Then he turns up in 1911 as a licensed victualler at 131 Witham. 
But where was he on the missing censuses?  To add to the confusion there's a William G Hodgson but it's not him.  Any help appreciated.

The Common Room / Robert Brock in 1851

Given the gaps in the 1851 census this is possibly a vain hope, but perhaps someone could find him.
Robert Brock was born in Stainforth near Doncaster c.1814.  I can first pick him up in 1861 when he is master of a Humber keel called "Carrier" moored in the Old Harbour in Hull.  Ten years later he is on a keel in the Stainforth canal with his wife Mary (born in Beverley).  It would be very useful to find him earlier.

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) Lookup Requests / Thomas Giles in 1862

I wonder if someone with a subscription to the BNA or similar could look something up for me.  I know that in 1862 Thomas Giles, a builder, appeared at Hull Police Court with allegations of breaching the Builders Act, and that there were reports in the local papers.  Your help would be appreciated.

What's the first word?  Clearly the rest is boot / shoe, but the first?  Mechanical?

Sorry, I want to delete this post.

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Hull centenarian
« on: Thursday 05 August 21 10:13 BST (UK)  »
I'm frustrated by the fact that the Hull Daily Mail is not digitised in the 1970s and I can't go to the Hull History Centre to look them up.  Sarah Mary Cluderay died in the 1st quarter of 1972 aged 100.  I need to know where she was living at the time of her death.  If she was still officially a resident of the Charterhouse it would make her our only known centenarian.  I'm hopeful that the Mail would have given her death, or her birthday the previous September 12th, a write-up.  Any help gratefully received.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Labourer in what house?
« on: Tuesday 03 August 21 09:10 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone decipher the word that's obscured by the line?  What kind of house is he labouring in?  (1901 census, Hull).

From the 1901 census, this is George Leak's occupation.  Grocer with what??
