Essex Lookup Requests / Re: Fuller Surname Help Please
« on: Sunday 30 September 12 19:56 BST (UK)  »
Hi Kate: Yes, I have put that William at the top of my list.  Previous census he is living with mother, Mary Ann and father James but I cannot confirm that my William's father was James and that is why I am asking if someone could help me with the marriage cert info.
The William you refer to has a second name of Henry.  I recently spoke to the granddaughter of the William I am searching for and she does not recall her grandfather ever using a middle name nor is it on his headstone, emigration information or the 1911 Canadian census.  Consequently,  I hesitate to claim the William living with Mary Ann as the man who emigrated to Canada without concrete verification.
I am asking if anyone has access to Essex marriage records could they look up the marriage of the couple and tell me the groom's father's name.
Thanks so much, Karen

I don't have the marriage certificate. All the info I have is that they married at West Ham last quarter of 1901 on BDM.  On the birth registration of a Canadian child their marriage is listed as December 11, 1901 in West Ham Essex.
Rosa Maud Cuffley's father was John Benjamin.
I am assuming that William had some sort of background on a railway or tram as he had a job to come to in Ontario on the railroad in 1909.  The Passenger list says Pitz or could be Citz worker as his occupation in England.
Sorry, that is all I have.

I am new to researching English records.  I am researching William Fuller born February 1876, he says in West Ham, Dorset on the Canada 1911 census.  Of course there is no such place, but West Ham in Essex is where he married Rosa Maud Cuffley December 11, 1901.  The couple had two children born in West Ham before emigrating in 1909. William states on the passage record that he is going to a job on the railway, his former job in England is mentioned but I am unable to decipher.

In searching the West Ham census for 1901, I found Rosa Maud in CanningTown, Plaistow, Dist 47.  I did find two Williams, one living with mother Mary Ann in District 18 but birthplace is Stepney, mothers birthplace is Dorset which could be a clue.  His occupation is Omnibus Conductor and there is no further link to 1911. The link to 1891 shows his name as William Henry b1876 Stepney, living in Edmonton, Middlesex with parents James and Mary Ann.
When I searched the BDM for this William Henry I find he is indeed born first quarter of 1876 but registered in Surrey, so I am thoroughly confused.
Would someone be able to look up the marriage in 1901 and confirm that James is the father of my William.  Many thanks

I do have more info since 2007 which I would have to look up for you.  Have you contacted the other researcher on this thread as I know he was delving into the Henderson side of our mutual relations.  You can PM me with your email address and I will try to assist as much as I can.

Kind Regards,

Hi Larry
I am also tracing McAdams from Ayrshire and have looked into the waterhead tree and came up with nothing.  Where in Ayrshire was Alexander born and do you know where they married.  I am primarily looking in Ayr, Ayrshire.  My gr gr grandmother Annie McAdam was born in Ayr 1810.

Hi J.J.
Yes, my contact in Vancouver is a direct descendant of Jeanie Sim Shearer.  As you pointed out to MCherney our Donald MacLeod was born in Stornoway and Mary Shearer born also in Scotland so we are going forward from their marriage in 1919.  Some new info has been uncovered, namely that a notation is on the marriage record that this couple was divorced in 1932 so we are trying to find a remarriage of either party.  As to the daughters name of this couple we have no idea what it is.

I hope you are still online and still searching for Stewarts.  My Stewart lines are from Ayrshire and Glasgow and in and around Edinburgh.  Do you have the parents names of the Robert that died in SA, I am searching for Stewarts that emigrated there in the latter two decades of the 1800's and some that went early 1900's.

You may want to have a look at the Ayrshire Roots site, they have the Ardrossan/Saltcoats Intimation index.  I checked it and has the marriage of Thomas to Catherine, some births of theirs, marriages and the death notices of both David and Jamieson. David married Jean Cunningham Wylie (another of my family names) 1906 in Dalry, he died Feb 1962 in Canada.
I also have a book called "Dalry Remembered" which is now out of print, its a pictorial of Dalry with many Dalry families and their businesses mentioned.  What was the name of Thomas's Tannery?
