ShaunJ - sorry - you are indeed correct about it being the 1891 data. I had worked backwards from 1901 and pasted the wrong data.


I am exploring a new branch of my Callear family tree and I am struggling to find:

  • William Powell Callear (b. ~1887) on 1911 Census
  • his parents William (b. ~1848) and Ann Ellen Callear (b. ~1859)

I think I need to learn to be more "abstract" with my searches, so I'm hoping any potential replies will provided useful hints/tips.

What I know:

1. In 1901, William (53), Ann Ellen (42) and William P Callear (13) are living in Snedshill, Priors Lee

Ecclesiastical parish: St Peter
Residence Place: Snedshill, Snedshill, Shropshire, England
Piece: 2523
Folio: 45
Page Number: 29
Household Schedule Number: 153

2. Early research into William P Callear returns a match in the 1939 census and a possible death in 1955. Logically, he must be somewhere in the 1911 census

My reasons for trying to trace this family is that they have descendants who live locally to me (Stoke-on-Trent area) but I cannot (as yet) connect our two branches of the Callear family tree.

Levi is shown as at least living in the Bilston area; while my branch is from the Telford (Wellington) area.

Thanks after much head scratching, I had literally just worked that out and found them under "Calliari" (in the 1901 Census)

Good shout about his wife -my typo.

I'm using Ancestry and can't return a match for that  ???

On FindMyPast I am sure it allowed you to enter the details  RG13 /4407 page 71 folio 40

I trying to trace the parents of Harry Callear (b. 15/08/10) & George (b/d ~1914)

What I know:
  • Their birth records states the mother's surname as BROOKES
  • There is a 1896 marriage between a Levi Callear (aged ~28) & Catherine Caroline Brookes (aged ~25)
  • 1939 Census: shows Harry (married to Catherine nee. Kelly) AND living with a widow, Catherine Brookes

What I am struggling to find:
  • Mention of Levi and/or Caroline on the census records for 1901 and 1911 - both must be alive as they later have the two boys
  • The death of a Levi Callear - I'm assuming this is pre-1939 (hence Caroline a widow but is it odd that she has reverted to her maiden name?)
Note: In 1911, there is a Harry (aged 1) shown as an inmate at Wolstanton and Burslem Union Workhouse, Turnhurst Road, Tunstall, Stoke On Trent

I've tried relaxing my search but no luck. I'd be very appreciative if someone with better research skills can help/guide.

Two of the members of my Callear family tree moved to Loughborough in the mid-1960s to run the Volunteer pub.

William Edward "Bill" and Millicient "Jean" Callear
Moved from the Trent Tavern, Bucknall, Stoke-on-Trent

Can anyone suggest any resources that may help us to learn more about them or the pub?

It seems that a branch of my Callear family were pub landlords and we'd like to learn more. Can anyone point me in the direction of any useful resources? The info that we know:

William Edward "Bill" and Millicient "Jean" Callear
The Trent Tavern, Bucknall
Their grandaughter commented that they where the first landlord and landlady - which may coincide with the fact that it opened in 1960 a day after its previous incarnation on an adjacent site had closed.

Frederick T and Winifred Latham
The Priory Inn, Bucknall
Daughter of the above. Winifred's address is shown on the 1957 death certificate of her father.

Thanks JohninSussex!

I'm interested in the usual names, ages, dates, relationships, professions, etc. It is hard to gauge whether the document contacts much of this or is predominantly the boilerplate text (poor registrar having to keep right that!)
