Wow, now I know the words  ;D (loved the turtle neck sweaters!)

Maybe .... would it be normal to get a tattoo for working on a ferry (if that's what he was doing?). I've been looking for the missing censuses with no luck

just checked - i don't have anything for Mont and Annie in 1891 or 1901


I think the drunk enumerator may have been involved in dodgy tattoos as well.

I'll check what I have for them in the later years.


and drumroll .... she exists, here's Mont's birth certificate  ;D came today


(singing) It's here, it's here, it's here  ;D

Mont's death cert

Enjoy! Then post me :)


Wow, no limits to your detective skills. I can see how it looks like "Shant" but I'm claiming it's "Mont". The ages on this census are out - so it looks like whoever informed the census taker on the night was either telling fibs or .... maybe one of the younger ones gave the information over and guessed. 


It does indeed  ;D

Well done! Big smiles!

So we effectively have her CENSUS records for 1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881 and missing in 1891 and finding it hard to find a death record (oh and did I forget to mention that really annoying missing marriage record).

Esther GRIFFITHS / WHITCHURCH did exist!

I haven't heard back from email (maybe 16 years ago is .... pushing it)

Howdy solidrock,

I have sent an email (in relation to Esther Griffiths / Whitchurch) so will let you know if I receive a reply. I am still delving through the info you posted a little while back (I'm still here - just in catch up mode adding information to my files etc).
