Canada Lookup Request / Re: Barritt/Barrett Girls - sent by Middlemore Homes
« on: Thursday 25 February 21 15:09 GMT (UK)  »
Thank you so much for the link.

Unfortunately I donít think that any of these records relate to my girls. Their parents were Eli Barrett and Ann Rutter. They may not have been aware of their parentís names as they were only 9 and 7 when sent over to Canada and their father had died about three years before that. I assume they would have been able to get some information from the homes that dealt with them but who knows how accurate that was.

Once more thanks for your help

Canada Lookup Request / Barritt/Barrett Girls - sent by Middlemore Homes
« on: Wednesday 24 February 21 18:34 GMT (UK)  »
I am wondering if anyone can help me find out what happened to these 2 sisters. 

In 1893 two sisters Mary Ann (b. abt 1883) and Alice (1885) were sent to Canada by the Middleton Homes on the Siberian. Both were sent to Scotsburn, Pictou Co., Nova Scotia. Mary Ann was placed with Adam R. MURRAY and I think was still there in October 1900 if I have read the BHC information correctly. However I cannot find her in the 1901 census.
Her younger sister was sent to George Stewart and is still there in 1901 but not by 1911.

I would love to know what happened to the two girls and if they managed to make a life for themselves.

The Common Room / Revising Barristerís Court 1843

Hi, can anyone tell me about the decisions made by a Revising Barristerís Court. I know that it concerns the voters list for the area but I do not know what the actual decisions mean.
Claims  -  either allowed or struck out.
Objections  - either struck out or retained.

Is it a claim to be added to the list? Why would somebody object to be on the list?

I would love to know what was involved for one relative who had his claim allowed.

They were perhaps, very quiet children.

And you know what they say about silence.  ;D ;D ;D


Or their parents were very hopeful  ;D ;D

Not sure how far you have gone back with the Family to find the Golden name?

HENRY BEN Warner Bapt 1 March 1801 St Andrew, Holborn to JAMES/SARAH
Siblings that are easy to find;
ELIZABETH ANN 23 AUG 1798, birth 1795   
MARY 23 AUG 1798

1841 Census
Ashby St
St Pancras
James Warner   65 Gold ...?
Anne Warner   25 Milliner
James Warner   13****

Could Sarah, Wife of James be nee Golden?
(havent found a Marriage though c 1791-1795)

James Henry Warners Father died 1845

He married as Henry Benjamin Warner to Elizabeth BEECH 12 August 1826 St. Andrew'S, Holborn, Middlesex

Trish :)

Yes I have found the above. I am also of the opinion that Henry Ben Warner separates from Elizabeth Beech and sets up a new family with a Matilda (possibly Collings or Collins). One of their children is a John Golding Warner 1834-1851. This info from you all is helping to confirm that opinion.

Is her father described as a Gold smith anvil maker in 1871 census?  Anvil could be Swivel after looking again.

Gold swivel maker in 1861?

Added: Goldsmith and Jeweller in 1851, as appears to be grandfather etc etc so Golden from his job?

That is the family. I did wonder about the job but is this a common practice? Also he does not have seemed to be too successful as his wife is a greengrocer (and in 1881 he is as well).

Researching my great-grandmother Kate Frances Warner 1860-1924 I found that of her 10 siblings, 5 were given the name Golden either as a first or middle name. Since their mother's maiden name is Knight I am trying to work out why this was done? I havenít found any possible Golden grandparents although I am still looking in to this. Has anyone any other ideas?

John was living in Birmingham with his parents in 1901 just around the corner at 85 Moseley Street. They may well have just offered board and lodging. I agree that it is a shame they have no children and I cannot even find a likely pair in the 1901 census.

Phil I am working off an image. Which I tried to attach but my brain is clearly not working too well at the moment. I will try again later.
