Lancashire Lookup Requests / Long - Blackpool
« on: Saturday 27 April 13 23:31 BST (UK)  »
I am researching for a friend who is executor of a will -and is trying to find beneficiaries

An elderly aunt (well into her 90's ) died recently she never married - her will leaves part of her estate to the neices and nephews of her friend William Thomas Long (William "Bill" died approx 6 years ago).
Very little is known of William Thomas Long - and no names are given of his neices & nephews

William Thomas Long was born 29 Aug 1925 at 7 E James St  Blackpool and died in Leicester
His parents were William Wordsworth Long & Mary Elizabeth Elliott
Parents died in the Blackpool area - Mary Elizabeth died 1939 age 40
William Wordsworth died in the 1950's

William Thomas Long had a sister Joan Long who was murdered age 22 in 1944 in Blackpool- an American serviceman was convicted of manslaughter- I have reports from nationwide newspapers - the only information on the family I can find from those reports is - Joan was the eldest of 3 children,  her father was a widower (and stated that Joan was born with a weak leg and was "not very bright" - unable to read & write -) Father William Wordsworth Long was a gardener and " ex lieutenant of the Loyal Regiment.
At the time of the murder the family lived at Bispham Blackpool

I think the missing child is Eileen b 1922 -who must have married and had children- and is apparantly now deceased.

Does anyone know who she married ??

Or any other information of this family?

Please PM me with any information in case anyone is living.

Thank you in anticipation

Could someone please point me in the right direction for any records on the following

Harry Savage born 1899 Pinxton Derbys
he was in the Royal Naval Voluntary reserves
In 1916 he was in Tyneside
later he was in Falmouth
His "disc" reads Z/11464 M.T.

He was a Telegraphist

I am not familiar at all with Military records - and am requesting this information for a gentleman who has recently suffered a stroke and is unable to carry on with his research unaided  at the moment

Harry Savage was his father

Thank you for any assistance with this query

I am looking for the death reg of Mary Ann Murrell - a mystery woman

She was born 2 Sept 1890 Castor Norfolk

according to a family member who remembers attending her funeral Mary Ann was interred April 1974 in the general Cemetary Kensal Green Harrow Road W10 4 RA
She supposedly died as Mary Ann Morrison

We have mary Ann Murell's history -and it is believed she never married

She had a child in 1912 with a gentleman "of connections" -he paid for the mother and childs upkeep until he married . The child was taken at some time when she was very young to the West Indies to stay with her father for a few months -and she remembered her father visiting.

When Mary Ann died her daughter and granddaughters attended the funeral -and when they went to mary Ann's home all paperwork etc had been removed from her desk. So there was no documentation of the daughter's father-or of any marriage for mary Ann

The daughter and Granddaughters were led to believe she died as mary Ann Morrison????

I can find no death reg or cemetary reg of mary Ann Morrison at that time

I can find no marriage reg to a Mr Morrison

The nearest death reg I can find is

Mary Ann V Baynes
b.3  Sept 1890
death reg mar qtr 1975
12 2271

but I can find no marriage to a Mr Baynes either - and Baynes is not a name which was known to the family

Can anyone help please?


Derbyshire Completed Look ups / Ellen Taylor -Occupation??? COMPLETED
« on: Monday 13 July 09 12:45 BST (UK)  »
on 1861 cenus
RG9 2435 6 6
 there is an Ellen Taylor age 54 widow b Ilkeston Derbys - living marlpool heanor Derbys with children martha, William, and Isaac

her occupation is given as Housekeeper -then there is "A" underneath it is no1, "R" underneath  is no 3, "P" underneath is no 37- then follows "of land 1 low"

I am not certain the last word is "low"

My guess is that it means 1 acre 3 roods 37 poles of land - but don't know what "1 low" means

was Ellen a housekeeper of land?

she did live in what is now a country park -and then would have been part of the Miller Mundy estate.

Ellen (Helen in 1851) has no occupation given 1851/1871

has anyone any further ideas???
