The Common Room / Re: which colchester ward/parish???
« on: Sunday 26 February 06 14:04 GMT (UK)  »
Have you tried the genuki site?
Don't know if that would help?

It sometimes tells you at the top of the actual census page the district, parish and ward that the address falls into.

Also there is a site called
You can find out historical info about any area of britain from that. Don't know if it would mention parishes though.

Sorry if that's not much help!


The Common Room / most popular names - is there a list?
« on: Sunday 26 February 06 12:26 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone know if there is a 'top ten' type of list of the most popular childrens names for the late 1800's?
I'm just wondering how common some of my ancestors names would of been. Alot of them seemed to stick to the family names of John, William, Henry, Mary and Elizabeth etc, but there are a few who decided to be different and use Lewis, Cuthbert, Minnie and Emma.
I know there are lists for babies born in the 2000's, but do lists exist for the other centuries?

I haven't found anyone researching the same lines as me.  :( And my surnames aren't even that uncommon!
Its not as if i'm being greedy either - i'd be happy with a very distant rellie!
I'm quite envious of those of you who have made contact with distant relatives, but maybe I haven't been doing it for long enough and need to be a little more patient!!

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / Re: 1891 look up HAWTHORN
« on: Friday 24 February 06 18:31 GMT (UK)  »
Thanks Anne for your help.
I suspect the older girls got married between censuses.
I think i'm going to look Emily up on the death reg seeing as she wasn't with David.
Thanks again,


Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / 1891 look up HAWTHORN
« on: Friday 24 February 06 18:04 GMT (UK)  »
Would someone be able to find this family for me in 1891?

This is what i have in 1881 -
Living at 263 Wapping Road, Bradford, Yorkshire
Alfred Hawthorn 49, Head, Gardener
Lavinia Hawthorn 42, Wife
John Alfred 22, Son
Mary 19, daug
Martha 18, daug
David ?, son (should be 16)
Thomas 12, son
Eliza 10, daug
Richard 6, son
Lavinia 4, daug
Emily 1, daug

All the children were born in Bradford, and i suspect they would still be in Bradford in 1891.

Alfred died in 1882 and Lavinia died in 1883, so i'm keen to know what happened to the younger children, and wether they stayed with their older siblings.

Thank you for any help,
