Lincolnshire / Long shot, looking for a possible picture/photograph.
« on: Thursday 16 September 21 10:46 BST (UK)  »
I have a Samuel Ellis born June quarter 1928 in Newark on Trent to Joseph Ellis and Elizabeth Bainbridge. Samuel was married to a Frances Drewery in 1853 Caistor Lincs, he died 17 Sept 1904 at Baltic house, Bargates, Grimsby. During his life he was a timber merchant and a great philanthropist, laying foundation stones and provided the money to build the Weelsby Alms houses that still stand in Grimsby today. His children Drewery and Joseph also laid them. My question is would there be any pictures anywhere of Samuel Ellis or his sons as they seem to be quite high profile in the years they were doing this. They where also involved in alot of building work, providing the money and organising trusts. Is there any place i can contact that may help, its a long shot i know but worth an ask on here.

Hi all
Can another pair of eyes please have a look at the attachment in 1939 below and see if they can read it please. Its number 4 Elizabeth Kinch born 1 Nov 1907, i cant read what was added, all i can make out is 'Murray ?? Adams'. Her husband John Kinch above her as number 3, died in 1969 in Herefordshire, but im wondering with the added names did Elizabeth remarry again after the death. I havent found a death record for her yet, but any help is appreciated.

« on: Tuesday 07 September 21 12:35 BST (UK)  »
Hi all
Im looking for any information on the above person please, especially his parents if possible. He was born (according to the UK register) 9 June 1916 and married a Dora Jones in 1939. I have found them in 1939 in Eccles but it isnt very clear. ~Can anyone make out what is crossed out on Dora's name and replaced by Critchley Horrocks. The name changed from Critchley Horrocks some time in the 70/80s to Hamilton (no idea why). Also there is a date written at the side, 23/10/1974 and again i have no idea why. I have attached picture to show.

Sussex / Birth puzzle help please-England or Ireland?
« on: Monday 01 February 21 16:49 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for help in finding the birth of a Margaret McIlwaine. She married in 1910 to Albert Harmes, both age 22 at the time, in Belfast Ireland, her father is given as James McIlwaine, a blacksmith. She is in Eastbourne England in 1911 at home with their first son Thomas aged 5 months, but no husband. Rumor in the family was that she born to English parents, quite possibly in Ireland around 1888 time. Ive found her in a boarding school in 1901 Ireland aged 15. Another family rumor was that her father was sent to Australia and her mum abandoned her, which is why she ended up in the boarding school. I have absolutley no idea where to find a birth for her, i think she had a sister Sarah that came to England with her but i cant be sure. Thankyou in advance xxx

Lincolnshire / William Gibson family help please ?
« on: Wednesday 27 January 21 11:01 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all
Im trying to find a William Gibson born 1852 in Hareby Lincolnshire, he married Elizabeth Roberts (Betsy) in 1873 in Wragby Lincolnshire, and Williams father is down as George Gibson on the marriage transcription, William and Betsy had 5 children William 1876, Rose 1877, Sarah 1879, George 1886 and John Henry in 1893. All i know about the family is that in 1895 Sarah Gibson, the daughter, at aged 16 murdered her little brother John Henry Gibson, then aged 2. Sarah was sent to Broadmore and the trail runs cold on her. What i am looking for is the death of William Gibson the father and also any sign of him before he married Betsy in 1873, so either the 1871 or 1861 census with his family.
Any help would be very much appreciated as i cant find anything. thankyou in advance.
