Dublin / William Heffernan & Mary Watson Dublin
« on: Friday 14 September 12 09:06 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for any information about William Heffernan who married a Mary Watson in Dublin.
Their son James Joseph Heffernan (b1920 7 St Kevins Cottage, Synge Street, Dublin. d1986 Birmingham) was my Father-in-Law, Jim's siblings were Christopher, William, Mary & Michael (all older than Jim)

William died in London, sometime after the War, but my Mother in law is unsure when.

I believe Christopher the eldest was born in 1911, but after the census, so no luck there. The only William Heffernan, that I can find of about the right age was in Kevin St. Dublin, but I have been told elsewhere this isn't the right one.

I know its all a bit vague, but if this rings a bell with anyone I would be grateful for any information. The only other rumour that I have is that the family may have originally come from Cork.

Thanks
Tom

Hi All,

I am trying to find information on a William Tozer born circa 1770 in the Exter Area. He moved to London in his twenties, Marrying Margaret. He was a follower of the prophetess Joanna Southcott and built a chapel on her behalf in Duke Street, St Georges Fields, London. I have been able to find his children, but no trace of his marriage or his birth. So I am looking for any information on his parents and wife

William died in Southwark in 1828. I do have a record that an ELizabeth Tozer attended chapel meetings with him in the 1820s but don't know who she is. I cant find a child with that name, so it might be a sister.

In hope !!

Staffordshire / Edwin Richards - Marriage c1870
« on: Wednesday 28 January 09 13:39 GMT (UK)  »
If anyone can help I would be very grateful in indeed:

My Great Grandfather Edwin Richards b1853 of West Bromwich, had a a Wife Ann born c1849 also of West Bromwich according to the census records. However I can find no detail of their marriage. Their first child Elizabeth A. was born 1874, West Bromwich, followed by Sarah 1876, Oldbury; Mary c1881 Oldbury; Samuel 1884 Langley; Susanna 25/10/1885, Oldbury and Peter c1890, Oldbury.

If anyone knows of Edwin and Ann or has come across any marriage records I would be very very interested ! Particularly Ann's surname ! I have tried FreeBMD, IGI and been to Smethwick Library to go through West Bromwich Church records but no luck (yet!)

Fingers crossed
Tom
