Immigrants & Emigrants - General / Ver May Ives (nee Isted)
« on: Thursday 02 July 20 14:41 BST (UK)  »
Grateful (as always) for any help with the family of the above who emigrated to Canada on the Aquitania on 23 Jun 1946 from Southampton.    She was born in 1905 and married 1943 in Surrey to a Canadian serviceman (Frederick S Ives).    I would like to know the names of her children who travelled with her.   They were being repatriated to Canada, her husbands country.   I have searched Ancestry but to no avail.   

Many thanks in advance

stay safe

Lanarkshire / 13 year old giving birth? Family cover up? Elspeth Millar 1903
« on: Saturday 15 February 20 18:05 GMT (UK)  »
I have a family living in 4 North St, Glasgow.    Husband Adam Robson, partner Elspeth Millar.   They have 3 children together and are acknowledged as parents on BCs between 1899 and 1902.   However there is also a child born in 1903 same address, mother Elspeth, no father and birth registered by Mary Millar "sister".    The death cert is also registered by Mary and no father shown..    Mary was born in 1890 which would make her 13 IF she was in fact the mother.   Elspeth senior also died in 1903.   

Could Mary have been the mother at 13?
Could the family covered this up by allowing Mary herself to register both events
The cause of death was congenital debility

Sligo / Roseanne/ Rose Ann Logan 1862-1926
« on: Sunday 12 January 20 19:10 GMT (UK)  »
Hi Folks - I am trying to find details of Roseanns family.    She was born around 1862 in Ireland and married a soldier from the 5th Regiment, George Palmer on 10 February 1883 in Sligo.    I believe her parents to be Edward Logan - no details, and Winifred Hogg born around 1829 also in Sligo.
George and Rose had a child Mary Winifred born 1885 probably in Sligo.
George died in 1901 and Rose 1926 both Glasgow (George same address as Winifred Hogg) 
Winifred (Hogg) died in City Poorhouse (Residence 48 McAslin St), Glasgow on 8 April 1896.

any help with the details of Edward and Winifred Logan (Hogg) and births of children in Sligo would be much appreciated.

Yorkshire (North Riding) / Fready Stonehouse
« on: Sunday 25 August 19 11:59 BST (UK)  »
In the 1901 census I have Robert Stonehouse (1855) his wife Mary (1855) and their 4 children.    1911 census shows that had 4 children and all still alive.    However there are also 2 other children shown as their sons: Stanley b 1896 and Fready b 1898.   GRO does not show mother maiden name for either nor can I find "Fready" in the GRO.   No Fready in the 1911 census

Who is the mysterious Fready and who is actually the mother of them both.    Any help would be greatly appreciated

« on: Monday 25 March 19 10:48 GMT (UK)  »

looking for parents of Muriel Hunter Taylor (1937-2011) and John Gay Taylor (1938-2014) I am hoping the parents are:
John Gay Taylor (1905-1975) and Jane Heddle Banks Hunter (1906-1969) married in Granton Manse on 21 June 1929.    I know that they had one son Andrew George Taylor (1930-2001)    All would have been born in Leith, Midlothian

many thanks
