The Common Room / Lampard family St Giles Middlesex
« on: Wednesday 27 September 17 15:36 BST (UK)  »
Hi Everyone,
I have found a family on the 1851 UK census, transcribed as Lampard. The original image appears to support this surname, but I cannot find anything else about them.
The parents are shown as Benjamin and Amy Lampard. I  cannot find a birth for Benjamin and I cannot find a marriage record where he marries Amy.
They have 3 children, Emma, Samuel and Amy. I cannot find the children on GRO Index but if parents weren't married then they would probably have been registered under the mother's name.
I cannot find the family together after the 1851 census either so apart from this one record I have no clues as to where to go next.
Any help would be much appreciated

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Charles Cawte in Gosport, Hampshire
« on: Sunday 24 September 17 10:01 BST (UK)  »
Hi Everyone

Could I ask for help in deciphering the age of Charles Cawte on the 1871 census. He has been transcribed as aged 30 but there is an enumerator's pencil mark in the column so the age is not that clear. He is described as a Pensioner, which I think would be unusual for someone who is only 30. His place of birth is not known.
On the transcription he is shown as living with Charles and Amelia Tout, but from the image I think they were neighbours rather than one household. As far as I am aware Charles was not related to the Tout family (Amelia's maiden name was Alford).

Thank you


Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Henry William Payne b.1823 Hampshire
« on: Friday 22 September 17 11:54 BST (UK)  »
Hi Everyone,
I am trying to find a family on the 1871 and 1881 census, living in Hampshire. Henry Payne married Julia Anna Houghton Cawte in 1866 in Southampton district. Their children were Edith Mary Annie b.1868, Lily Bessie Rosine b. 1872 and Bertram Frank b.1879. On the 1891 census Julia is shown as a widow and her two youngest children are with her. Her daughter Edith is on a different record, showing her in service.  I found a possible death for Henry Payne in 1885, which calculated his year of birth as 1823. I cannot confirm this as I cannot find Henry on any census.
Julia did not remarry after Henry's death as she is shown as a widow living in Southampton on the 1911 census. No sign of her on the 1901.
Any help would be much appreciated

Bedfordshire Lookup Requests / Parkinson family in Maulden
« on: Sunday 29 April 12 11:56 BST (UK)  »

Offer: Parish Registers-Maulden,Wootton,Woburn,Cranfield and Marston Moretaine-
on: Tuesday 27 December 05 00:32 GMT (UK)

I have the following parish registers which all go up to 1812 and am willing to do any lookups from them

Marston Moretaine

For a lookup request please start a new topic in the CENSUS and RESOURSCE LOOKUP REQUEST board for this county.

I am posting the above offer which was made in 2005 in the hope that Trisha or anyone else can help me trace the Parkinson family who lived in Maulden and Clophill in the early 1800s.

I have John Parkinson who was born around 1803 in Maulden. He married Mary Ann some time before the 1841 census in Maulden. I would like to know the date of the marriage and also Mary Ann's maiden name.

I do not have any other siblings for John and do not know his parents' names either so if anyone can help me with this family I would much appreciate it.

I have found John with his wife and family on different census records so do not need any info coming forward, just need to go back further if I can.


London and Middlesex / HALLETT family in Peckham
« on: Tuesday 23 August 11 08:51 BST (UK)  »
I am researching the Hallett family who were living in Peckham around 1900.
I have a marriage certificate for William Hallett b.1894 who married Nellie Green in 1916. His father is shown as George Hallett deceased, occupation Carman.
I found the family on the 1911 census and William's mother was shown as married and deserted. Whether they found out that George was dead or not I do not know, but his mother Maria married the lodger William Weeks in 1914 and William Weeks is a witness at her son William's marriage in 1916.
I have a copy of the parish record for Maria Bradley and George Hallett in 1889 which took place at St James Church Edmonton Middlesex. At that time George's occupation was shown as a butcher.
I found George and Maria and their eldest son George in Peckham on the 1891 census. However, George and Maria's place of birth is just shown as England.
I cannot find any of the family on the 1901 census. I have no idea if George had already deserted his family by then, but I have looked for Maria b.1861 in Surrey and each of her 3 sons George b.1889, Wandsworth, Henry b.1892 and William b.1894 both born Camberwell and I cannot find any of them.
From George and Maria's marriage record I know that George's father was also called George and he is shown as deceased at the time of the wedding.
How can I go further back?
Hope someone can help me with this one

Essex / Robert Burton b.1837 Coggeshall
« on: Thursday 14 April 11 12:10 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone
I am hoping someone can help me solve a mystery with regard to Robert Burton b.1837 in Coggeshall.
My connection is through Robert who was the son of James and Maria Burton. He is with them on 1851 census and I also found a baptism for him in 1837 when I visited Essex Records Office.
I then found what I thought was him on subsequent census records, married to Elizabeth. Certainly he is shown as living in Robins Bridge Rd which is where a lot of my other Burtons lived.
However, the only marriage record I can find is for Robert Burton (B.1837) marrying Elizabeth Newman 28th April 1860 in Coggeshall. The problem with this record is that his father is recorded as Isaac Burton and the witnesses are Joseph Burton and Sarah Parmeter - none of whom are in my tree! (I did notice that a Sarah Parmeter is living a few doors from Robert and Elizabeth in the 1861 census. )
The Robert and Elizabeth that I found on the census had their first child in 1859 so it may be that there is another marriage out there somewhere. However I looked at the microfiche for Coggeshall marriages when I visited Essex Records yesterday and no others came up.
Also, I cannot find an Isaac Burton living in Coggeshall so not sure where he fits in.

If anyone can offer any further suggestions I would be most grateful


New Zealand Completed Requests / Cawte and Young connections in New Zealand
« on: Friday 28 March 08 09:11 GMT (UK)  »
Hi There,
I don't know if this is the right forum to place my message but just wanted to publicly thank lil growler for finding information linking the Young and Cawte families together. I had various bits of information but lil growler was able to supply "missing link" and that made all the pieces of the puzzle fit together.
I really appreciate the time and effort made on my behalf. As I am resident in UK I didn't know where to start with this one.
I have hopefully sent lil growler a personal message (not sure, I am new to this!!) but felt it was only right that others know of the terrific help and support that is out there.

Lynda ;D

Family History Beginners Board / A special thank you
« on: Sunday 03 February 08 00:21 GMT (UK)  »
I would like to send a special thank you to Casulguidi and Bearkat. In August last year I started a series of posts about Henry Lampard born in Rainham Kent. I had various relatives who got mixed up over who belonged to who and both of these researchers guided me in the right direction with various census records (all of which turned out to be pertinent to my tree), army records and links to other websites. They gave me all the pieces of the jigsaw but it has taken till now to finally solve the
puzzle. I have sorted out the Maltese connection and put the lady in Australia straight about which
children belong where.
It is only now that I can start to update my tree with all the relevant facts. But I would never have got this far without the help of Casalguidi and Bearkat. ;D
Thanks a million


Devon Lookup Requests / Look up request for lampard marriage
« on: Tuesday 29 January 08 19:30 GMT (UK)  »
I am currently researching Lampard family in Rainham Kent. I have found a census record for William Lampard born 1815 in Rainham Kent, married to Emma who came from Devon.
I have found a possible marriage record in June qtr 1848 East Stonehouse. If this is the correct one,
Emma's surname was Jennings and William Lampard's occupation was a Seaman.
If it is possible for someone to look up this record, I need to know William's father's name and occupation. Presumably this would show up on the marriage record.
Any information gratefully received.
