Northumberland / Re: New (relatively) GRO search for Births
« on: Monday 13 May 19 19:19 BST (UK)  »

I had the same thing and the answer from the GRO after I had reported it twice, then to Customer Services or something along those lines, was a reply that said they couldn't help me as some of those records in the GRO Index have been entered in error and do not exist, apparently all the major companies that use the records are aware of it.
I was after the MMN as well but I can only assume now that a Death had been entered into the Births section, I didn't try ordering the Birth Cert as I manged to find the Baptism of the child

Hi All,

I have found what I think is Walter, not with Rhoda in 1939 she is under Anderson but there is Walter Pierce in 1939 born 1865 which is very close in age in Mayland.

There is also a Burial in the same Parish for David Pearse in March 1943 aged 78 so I think that sorts this one out!

I have PDF's for two of their children's Birth but the MMN is Webb so there is another mystery to solve.

Happy to swop info with anyone who is searching and compare notes.

Kind regards

Hi Yvonne,

How Fab.

Happy New Year to you, I had no idea where this might lead yesterday, I was just hoping it would!

I think I have also found his brother Walter but that's another lead yet to be proved

Kind regards

Hi All,

I have just registered so it might be that I need to post this elsewhere but I thought i would start here as it is all possibly related to the same people.

I have been researching my Bibby/Pearse line for the last couple of months but I am getting DNA Matches to Anderson and I wanted to explore my theory on the Pearse connection.

I have 10 children of John Pearse and Sarah Matthews who married in Chemsford in 1838, as with all these families they have been difficult to follow through the years but I have lost their two sons Edward born 1862 Moulsham and Walter b 1865 Moulsham but Baptised as David.

I have DNA matches to desendants of both of these sons if they used the Anderson name instead of Pearse.

i have read a lot of these threads but i know it's a difficult frustrating trail to follow so i am posting to see what others think.

Walter: I am waiting to hear back from my DNA Match I think he appears as Walter Anderson age 27 Travelling Hawker born Chelmsford on the 1891 Census St Lawrence Maldon

Edward: I have him in 1881 as Pearce age 19 Hawker born Chelmsford in Writtle, Edney Common

I suspect he changed his name after this and uses Anderson later on but there are two of them on the 1911 Census and I suspect he could be listed twice, both times as a soldier, once with his father and once with his Aunt now Elizabeth Bixby.

i hope my post makes some sense and that i have given enough information.

Kind regards
