Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Re: Clara Woodward (b 1872???)
« on: Wednesday 02 December 20 00:18 GMT (UK)  »
There is this 1881 entry for Nottingham but ages donít match earlier censuses.

All surname Woodward - all b Tewksbury but from Charles onwards - b Notts

William 63 b Gen labourer
Ann 60 b
Elizabeth 25
Ann 20
Charles 18 b Notts
Clara ? 14 b Notts
Ellen ?? B Notts
RG11 pce 3353 folio 58  Pge 19

Ellen's age looks like 14
There is a birth reg Jun qtr 1870 Nottingham for Ellen Woodward mother's maiden name Hallings
I cannot find this Ellen on 1871 census
there is a death reg Sept qtr Nottingham Ellen Woodward age 0
so maybe they had another Ellen - so confusing with ages etc

The only Woodward/Halling marriage was William Henry Woodward to Ann Halling in June qtr 1853 Tewksbury

I think this marriage is a very strong possibility for Clara's parents
Clara is findable on 1939 on Ancestry - can;t post details

This looks to be her birth

mother's maiden name HALLING     
Q3  1871   NOTTINGHAM  Volume 07B  Page 246

Not finding them on 1881 yet

I can't find them in 1881

But this seems to add up (of course Clara's marriage cert would help with father's name

William Henry Woodward 24 Bachelor labourer Barton St father Robert Woodward Stocking Maker

Buckinghamshire / Re: Rose Hannah Dudley and William Gillett
« on: Friday 20 November 20 17:39 GMT (UK)  »
It seems very likely she was in the Asylum at the time of the 1911 census

UK Lunacy Patients Admissions Register 1846-1912
Buckinghamshire Asylum
33968 Gillett Rosanna or Rose hannah
Admission 13 Feb 1911 discharged 19 Jun 1911

It seems she was readmitted Dec 1911

we are not allowed to give details of 1911 census

Try looking for The Bucks County Lunatic Asylum Stone nr Aylesbury Bucks

I dont quite understand the WW1 record and as I cant get to the image I am wondering if it has been mistranscribed

Quarter sessions Suffolk Oct 1892
Charles William Gifford inflicting grevious bodily harm 1 calendar month hard labour

I can findCharles William Gifford on census up to 1891 if you would like them but none after that

this may be of interest
Florence Susan Blanche May (otherwise Florence susan Blanche May Gifford) of Mill Rd Cowlinge near Newmarket Suffolk widow died 23 Oct 1954 probate London8 Jan to Hubert Gifford, grocer, and Muriel Foreman (wife of  Ernest Edward Foreman)
Effects £1550 19s
(Muriel is the daughter of Florence)

then there is this (which I don't have access to image)
WW1 Pension and record cards
Widows and dependents of
other ranks died - Giffen Gill S
dependants Alexander Charles Gifford
Florence S B M Gifford

1901 census lists Charles William Gifford crossed through Married no age given Farmer absent in asylum then Florence and 2 children (Alex and Muriel) Florence 's occupation is "Managing the farm" -so thats probably why the younger children are with relatives
