Lancashire / Coulter or Colter Family Liverpool
« on: Monday 08 June 20 17:46 BST (UK)  »
 Margaret Coulter ( Maiden name not known) is on the 1851 census with 3 grown up children  in Liverpool . Her son Fitzgerald b 1821, Mary Ann b 1826 and Margaret b 1828. Mother and children born Ireland--but no clues as to location.

Margaret Snr is a Widow. Husband  John a farmer ( no idea if he ever came to England ) . Information taken from her daughter  Mary Anns  marriage cert in 1856 to Alexander Bain .a Mariner . Both listed as of full age.
Fitzgerald also marries 1856 ( 9/11/1856) and his line forward is covered . Margaret the sister is with her sister Mary Ann on the 1861 census at 8 Kent terrace Liverpool. Alexander is most likely at Sea as not listed. No sign of any children. Unable to find them on 1871 census .

Would welcome any  information  and in particular did Margaret marry ? . Know nothing about Alexander Bain or what happens to his wife after that 1861 census.
Very Many Thanks.

Lanarkshire / Margaret Jane ( Maggie) Thomson
« on: Wednesday 03 June 20 16:14 BST (UK)  »
Hoping someone can point me in the right direction as i am making a hash of searching Scotland's People site .
Margaret Jane ( known as Maggie) Thompson was born 5/2/1880 as Dunlop in Co Fermanagh Ireland. She marries a John Thomson and in 1917 they are living at Abbots Ford Ave ,Rutherglen,  Scotland.
The address was taken from her mothers will.
They have 3 sons and best guesstimates for births are Eric  abt 1916, David Alexander abt 1914 and David Dunlop Thomson abt 1917. Interestingly only David Dunlop was mentioned in his grandmothers will so i dont know if that means they had died.

Greateful for any information. thank You .

I am hoping someone can help on this . George Beggs b 7/2/1871 Belfast was living  at Barrow in Furness from 1891 to at least 1943. He was married to Clara who dies September 1943. He continues to live with his daughter and son in law  after her death --but i dont know for how long before he disappeared .( They went to New Zealand between 1961-1968 and died there .)
One day George simply left their home in Barrow and never returned. One story is that he fell from a bridge . Whatever the truth we can find no death record. I had assumed that after 7 years one would have been issued --but does that only happen in Films .
Wondered if there might have been anything in a local  newspaper about the incident .
Not sure how to tie up these loose ends and grateful for your help.

Many Thanks

Armed Forces / Nuremberg Trials
« on: Thursday 21 May 20 09:56 BST (UK)  »
I am not sure if this is the correct board for this --so apologies if not. I have a family member who we were told was involved as an Interpreter  . I have looked at the National Archives but cant see any collection of records  that suggests the names of individuals from Britain involved  might be  listed. Of course its possible any file if it exists could still be closed.

Grateful for any information on how best to proceed in this quest.
Many Thanks .

Warwickshire / Mystery family of Eliza Smith/Birch/Hallgarth
« on: Thursday 14 May 20 17:22 BST (UK)  »
 I am struggling to make sense and find records for this family.
Eliza Smith is the daughter of William Thomas Smith b 1819 Bristol dies 1873 Birmingham and Margaret born Limerick. Information taken from census returns 1851 and 1861.
 Eliza was born 1839 Sheffield . Have not been able to find marriage reference for parents and would love to .

Eliza marries around 1858/9 a Mr Birch. cant find  a record sorry . He  had died by the time of the 1861 census Birmingham,Duddeston .Eliza is now back with her Smith  family .
Also on that census her 2 sons William J and Thomas Birch both born Birmingham .

Her siblings William b 1843 Manchester, Matilita 1847 b Sawston Somerset and Mary 1850 also born Somerset are on the 1861 Census for Birmingham. This family moved around .
Then in 1865 Eliza marries John Hallgarth  in Aston Birmingham . They have a son Thomas b 1867  but  John dies 1871.  Eliza and Thomas are on their own on  the 1871 Census. No show of her sons from her first marriage .

Just a little complicated . Would greatly appreciate help in untangling this family.
Thank you .

Armed Forces / 2nd Foot Guards
« on: Thursday 30 April 20 10:19 BST (UK)  »
In exploring a family tree I have found some records but I am not sure what they mean. Samuel Gilman b 1766 Minchampton Gloucestershire is listed as a Pensioner in 13.10.1814.
Record on Ancestry . Says he  served 14 years with the 2nd Foot Guards. Duke of Cambridge  . Complaint/reason for pension ?  given as  Rheumatism--record very hard to read sorry.
Was this a local Militia ?
Record also says he is a   Labourer --he worked in the Cloth Industry but this information was taken years latter from information on a marriage certificate for one of his children.

Interested in any information.
Thank You .

Staffordshire / Bannister ,Banks, Bannister of Wolverhampton mine Owners
« on: Thursday 23 April 20 14:29 BST (UK)  »
I came across an Article attached to a family tree   that said  William Bannister b 1795 Dudley went to New Zealand in 1840 with his family -- where he latter died . The article said the move was due to heavy losses from flooding to his mines . He was said to be a well to do pit owner and Founder of the firm  Bannister,Banks ,Bannister of Wolverhampton.
I have tried with out success to confirm if this was true.
 His wife was Mary Eades. Family John Eades Bannister, William Bannister,Edwin Bannister,Robert Elijah Bannister.

Any information about the company and his role in in much appreciated prior to leaving England .
Thank You .
