Durham / Looking for Charles Smith 1891 and before.
« on: Tuesday 19 April 22 08:17 BST (UK)  »
Hi all
Im trying to trace a Charles Smith but going around in circles so im hoping you lovely lot can have a look for me please.
Charles Smith married in 1892 in Sunderland, Durham to a Mary Le Bihan (as transcribed on Ancestry), i have Charles in 1901 as being born Germany, British Subject living in Sunderland with wife Mary and their two children Lillian aged 8 b.Sunderland and Ernest (Charles) aged 5 b.Sunderland. His wife Mary aged 29 was also born in Sunderland. On the 1911 census their address is given as Gas office, Fawcett Street, Sunderland and Charles is transcribed as born in Sheffield Yorkshire. I cannot find Charles in the 1891 census or the earlier ones. The 1921 census shows Mary as a widow and living with their daughter Lillian and husband.
Any help locating Charles is appreciated.
Also Marys marriage is transcibed on FindMyPast as Mary Le Bimon, but she is added to the wrong husband. I cant find a marriage for a Charles Smith on FindMyPast.

Lancashire / Maud Scott-Masseuse 1917
« on: Monday 21 February 22 10:32 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all this is a tricky one so im hoping some kind person can work this out for me as its driving me nuts.
I have the birth certificate below of a Helmar Bergman Scott, born in 1917 (illigitimate) in Blackley Manchester.
His mother was Maud Scott and the father was a Oscar Bergman, who was Swedish. Oscar came over to England during WW1 and worked at the Army military hospital in Baschurch Shropshire. The hospital was started by Dame Agnes Hunt and it was the first of its kind to offer the 'Swedish Drill' which we know today as physiotherapy. Maud Scott was a masseuse at the same place. Maud gave the child to a couple called Sarah and John Barkley sometime between 1917 and 1921 as he is on the 1921 census aged 4 with them. The 1921 census also states that Helmars father is dead. What i am looking for is who was Maud Scott, (or even Oscar Bergman if im really lucky lol)  i know nothing about her at all, maybe if i can find Maude i can find some info about Oscar Bergman the father x
Thank you all in advance.

Lancashire / Francis or Frank Devine 1851-1861
« on: Monday 13 December 21 14:27 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all
Im looking for the guy above but he cant seem to make up his mind what his name is, or where he was born.
Francis was born about 1844 ish in either Lancashire or Ireland. I have him as Francis Devine aged 30 living in Ormskirk Lancashire in 1871, b. Bolton Lancs, with wife Alice and 4 kids (John, Mary, Francis, Robert). 1881  Francis Devine aged 37 with wife Alice living in Tyldesley Lancs with 8 children, born Ringley Lancs. By 1891 he was calling himself Frank Devine aged 50 with Alice and the children, but his place of birth has changed to Ireland. 1901 is the same, Frank Devine aged 60 living in Tyldesley with his wife Alice again born in Ireland.  Francis /Frank Devine died in 1904 Lancashire.
Also i dont seem to be able to locate a marriage for Francis/Frank to Alice. All the children are registered under the mothers maiden name of Darlington, the oldest, John Devine being born in 1862. Any help on this is  much appreciated, and thanks in advance.

Cheshire / John Poole-Bigamist or not
« on: Saturday 11 December 21 12:56 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all
I am looking for possible marriages for the above person. John Poole was born in 1840, registered in Nantwich Cheshire, mmn was Potts.
I have him aged 1 in 1841 with his parents Ralph and Sarah Poole living in Barthomley in Cheshire.
1851 aged 11 he was an apprentice Tailor with a Billington family in Barthomley. Heres the interesting part, John married an Isabelle Campbell in 1860 in Farnsworth Lancashire, on the 1861 census they had 1 son Thomas George Poole aged 1 month, Isabelle was down as being born in Scotland (Argyll).
Then Isabelle and son Thomas totally disappear and by 1871 John Poole is with a Sarah (possibly Burslem) as man and wife living in Birmingham with their child called Edith Poole aged 8 months.
Then in 1881 John is with a different woman again, this time her name is Rose aged 27 and again living as man and wife. They have Edith with them aged 10 from the 1871 census, a child called Jannet aged 9 (which i havent checked for a birth yet) but they have 5 children together, Maud, Sidney, Myra, Minnie and Harry.
What i need help on is,
1. What happened to his first wife Isabelle? Did she die or did he leave her?
2. Did he marry Sarah from the 1871 census, and what happened to her before 1881?
3. Did he also marry Rose from the 1881 census.
Hope that all makes sense.
Thankyou in advance.

Nottinghamshire / Mary Harrison born 1857 Bothamsall
« on: Tuesday 07 December 21 21:44 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all
Im looking for the above Mary Harrison and having no look. She was born in 1857 in Bothamsall Notts, registered in East Retford and her mmn was Whittington. I have Mary aged 4 on the 1861 census living with her parents  John and Elizabeth Harrison in Elkesley Notts, after that she dissapears.
Mary had an illigitimate child in 1876 called John William Harrison, she had him in Gainsborough Lincolnshire and her address at the time was given as Carters Row, Beaumont Street, Gainsborough. No indication of any father on the certificate. On the 1881 census, John William aged 5 was living with his  mothers sister, Annie Johnson and her husband Peter Johnson on Carters Row, which was next to Beaumont Street in Gainsborough.
I have no idea what happened to Mary after the birth of her child, she isnt with her parents as her mother Elizabeth had died in 1865, and her father had remarried to a Jane Crooks also in 1865 in Elkesley.
So i am hoping you lovely lot could have a look for me and see if you can locate her.
Thanks in advance xx

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Francis William Burton born 1864
« on: Tuesday 16 November 21 12:58 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for the above named fellow but not having much look.
Francis married a Emma Hollis in 1885, Brightside Yorkshire when he was 21 and Emma was 19. His father is named as William Burton, miner. I have Francis and his family in 1891 in Attercliffe Sheffield, Canalside, 1901 census same place and 1911 they were living at 17 March street in Attercliffe. I cannot find anything about Francis William Burton before he was married, even though i have his fathers name. So if some kind person could hopefully locate him in 1881 and 1871 i would really appreciate it. Also the census records i have him on say he was born in Hucknall Notts. Francis died in 1939 in Sheffield. Thanks loads in advance.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Albert Victor Pointing born 1877?
« on: Thursday 04 November 21 10:41 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for the above Albert 'Victor' Pointing and going around in circles. He is listed on the 1939 register as 'Victor Pointing' living in Doncaster with his wife Margaret and being born 16 January ??. A lot of Ancestry trees have his DOB as 1877 but i can't find any birth registrations for him at this time. He is on the 1911 census as Victor Pointing aged 34, but his age is crossed out as is a lot of the wording on the 1911 record. His parents on the 1911 census are John Henry Pointing aged 77 born in Bath Somerset, and his mother Florence aged 59, place of birth unknown. Albert Victor has a brother on the 1911 census called John Henry Pointing aged 27 born ?
The address in 1911 is 72 West Hill, Tredegar, Monmouthshire, Wales. Albert Victor married Margaret Hanson in 1925 in Hemsworth Yorkshire. Someone with the same familytree on Ancestry has stated that John Henry Pointing (father) was married previously to a Mary Edmond in 1959 but untill i can find his son Albert Victor and locate him on the census records i cant prove that marriage.
Thankyou in advance.

Lancashire / Edge/Jones marriage help
« on: Saturday 16 October 21 13:57 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for the marriage of Joseph Edge to Amy Jones. Joseph was born in 1874 in Barton Lancashire and his wife Amy Jones was born in 1882 at Tipperary barracks in Ireland. On the 1911 UK census it shows Joseph aged 37, Amy his wife aged 28 and there 3 children, Joseph (6)William (3) and Thomas (9mths). It says that Joseph and Amy had been married for 6 years. Amy was born in Ireland but her parents Richard and Sarah, were English and living in Duston Northamptonshire in 1891 with Amy and her siblings. I am wondering if Amy was married before she met Joseph and she had a different surname when she married him as i cant find an Edge/Jones marriage for them any where. Please can anyone find these 2 elusive people for me, thanks in advance.
