Looking for info on FANNY JOBSON.
Fanny is listed on the GrO Index as having died in 1909 in the reg district of Ripon.

Durham Lookup Requests / Durham to Sth Africa
« on: Sunday 14 November 10 22:03 GMT (UK)  »
Have been searching for info on an ancestor who spent some time in Sth Africa and notice that a R/Chatter had success by help with info from Find my Past.
Could I get some info please on Walter Ducros bn Birmingham 1877.
He must have travelled prior to 1901 census to Sth Africa, followed after the census by his wife Elizabeth and 2 daughters at a later date as a daughter was bn there in 1903.

In 1901 only his wife Elizabeth b1880 and 2 daughters are listed living in Durham.
From the 1911 census I find that there are several additions to the family one being a daughter bn 1903  in Bronkhorstpuit, Sth Africa. By 1905 they are bk at Sth Shields where the rest of their family are born.

Yorkshire (West Riding) Lookup Requests / ripon 1909
« on: Thursday 15 July 10 01:00 BST (UK)  »
Looking for Fanny Jobson. Have found a GRO death listing for Dec Q 1909 at Ripon. Age 73 
I see that Ripon covers both North & West Riding, not sure which one for her.
Are there any on line records for obituaries from newspapers or church records? or does someone from the area have access or ideas that could help.    Would like to be able to take this as definite by identifying family members.

Have found an ancestor living at Tower St, Winchester, Hampshire on the 1911 census.
Her occupation is listed as Headmistress, of a Secondary School.
Unfortunately the school`s name is not listed.  Can anyone help with the name of any secondary schools in the vicinity, or have info that might help with the years spent at the school, and any photos. Her name was Ethel Cunningham.

South Africa / Info from Bronkhorstpuit area please
« on: Thursday 17 June 10 00:57 BST (UK)  »
Have not done any research in South Africa and need some advice on where to find records, or help finding any info on Walter Ducros bn Birmingham c1877

Couldnt find him on the 1901 census and thought it might be a misspelling of the surname.
His wife and 2 children are there.
Found them all plus additions to the family  in the UK on the 1911 census  with one daughter bn in a place listed as
BRONKHORSTPUIT, South Africa bn 1903   Possibly this is where he was in 1901 and his wife Elizabeth and the older children went out later.
They were bk in the UK after this as the next child was bn 1905 in South Shields.
Are there any shipping records or records for Bronthorstpuit, that would place them there and give an inkling as to what he was doing.  In 1911 he`s listed as an Insurance  representive.
Any help appreciated.   Hinton.
