We would like help dating this photograph of one our family lines. It isn't in great condition, but if anyone can help narrow down a time frame it would be great. The photo was taken by a photographer (C.R.Skelton of 50 Avenue Rd) in Acton, Middlesex.

London and Middlesex / Barnett family, St Pancras
« on: Saturday 14 April 18 17:17 BST (UK)  »
I have Thomas Barnett and family in the 1841 census, however am having difficulty finding any other trace of them other than that one census record.

1841 Census - Little George Street, St Pancras, Somers Town, piece 685, book 11, folio 10, page 14

Thomas Barnett, 1804, Carman, born in county
Mary Barnett, 1809, born in county
Mary Ann Barnett, 1832, born in county
Thomas Barnett, 1839, born in county
James Darvill, 1823, engineer j, born in county

I have found James Darvill who is listed with them in 1841 with no problem. Any help locating any of the Barnetts appreciated.

Westmeath / Killucan parish records pre 1821
« on: Saturday 16 April 16 14:47 BST (UK)  »
Are records for Killucan available before 1821? I know via NLI Catholic parish registers that Baptisms and Marriages can be searched online from 1821. If I need records before that date would they be held by the individual churches?

Cork / Calden/Callaghan surname variation
« on: Monday 28 March 16 22:03 BST (UK)  »
Has anyone come across the surname Calden as being a variant of Callaghan? I have Calden ancestors (in England from 1860's) who all originate from Cork. However a search of the Cork parish registers results in no Caldens at all in the 1830 -1840 period I am researching. The first census record I have them in in England they are listed as Callan, and in subsequent censuses always as Calden. So I was wondering if there's a possibility that they started out as Callaghan or something similar.

Hi. We are trying to work out which family member this is. We would like to know if it's possible to work out the date, and if anything can be identified from the nurses uniform she is wearing.

Many thanks, Ann

Surrey / Darvill - 1861 Croydon census.
« on: Tuesday 23 April 13 15:31 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to locate my great x 3 grandfather Henry Darvill and his family in the 1861 census, but with no luck. I know he would have been living in Cherry Orchard Road, Croydon at that time as his son Alfred was born at that address two months before the 1861 census. (and the next child was born there too so am assuming there would be at that location.)

Henry Darvill - born 1821 - occupation: rail labourer/ general labourer
Eliza Darvill - born 1828 Croydon
Martin James Darvill - born 1849, Wolverhampton
Mary Ann Darvill - born 1850, Hastings, Sussex
William Henry Darvill - born 1851 Hastings, Sussex
Caroline Darvill - born 1853, Croydon
Amy Darvill - born 1855, Croydon
Elizabeth Darvill - born 1856, Croydon
Sarah Darvill - born 1858, Croydon
Alfred Darvill - born Feb 1861, Croydon.

I don't know whether the records for that area are actually missing or I just haven't been able to find them, but any help would be appreciated.

Would like help with dating this photo. We believe it is my grandmother's aunt who was alive from 1862 - 1918. I did find the photographer Edward Ayling in the 1891 Census living at 11 Derby Road, Croydon, but don't know how long he was trading, and if photo would be before that date ot more 1900s. Photo size 2.5" x 4".

Yorkshire (North Riding) Lookup Requests / Baptism, Richmond 1850
« on: Monday 30 January 12 16:40 GMT (UK)  »
Am searching for any birth/baptism record of Thomas Raine, born approx 1850 in Richmond, Yorkshire. I have his father's name from his marriage certificate as John Raine, coal miner, and from one of the census records his mother's name as Sarah.

He's proving fairly elusive.

Surrey Completed Look up Requests / Reigate Baptism 1793 - COMPLETED

Am searching for birth details for Martin Beadle born in Reigate, Surrey in 1793. Have found his marriage and burial details on IGI Familysearch, but these were in Croydon. Reigate is always given as his place of birth in the census records. Are any Reigate parish records available online?
