England / George Tagg b.1877
« on: Sunday 03 February 19 08:17 GMT (UK)  »
I am looking for the death of George Tagg. He was born in 1877 in South Ferriby, Lincs.
In 1907 he married Isabella Adelaide Meeks in Marylebone, London. They had one child, Cecil William Tagg, b.1915 in Fulham.
I have found George on censuses for 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911. Also on the 1920 electoral register living at 137 Wandsworth Bridge Rd, Fulham with his wife Isabella.
There is a death registered in 1928 in Islington for a George William Tagg, but as there is no evidence that his second name was William. By 1930 his widow had married again.
Can anyone find an alternative death for George between 1920 and 1930? If not I will send for the above mentioned certificate.

Thanks, Simon. I did find this couple but it seems a long way from Barnsley! Not ruling them out though.

I don't think so. I believe she died 17.10.2015. She was married to Harry (aka Barry) Hammond.

I'm looking for the parents of Lily Willetts b.1930. She had a sister called Irene b.1928 also in Royston, Barnsley. GRO gives the mother's maiden name of both girls as Baker. I can't find a marriage between a Willetts and a Baker, nor find either child on the 1939 Register. Can anyone help please?

Derbyshire / Re: Thomas Potter b.1864 Mackworth, Derbyshire

Thanks BumbleB,
I think sending for the marriage certificate is the only option. I get the feeling he could have been illigitimate.

Derbyshire / Thomas Potter b.1864 Mackworth, Derbyshire

I'm looking for Thomas Potter b.1864 Mackworth, Derbyshire.
In 1884 he married Ellen Peat in Derby and had  6 children with her. In 1901 he is described a carrier on a farm. In 1891 he is not shown with his wife (who is with her mother in Ashleyhay, Derbyshire).
I have been through all the censuses for Mackworth and can't find any family he might fit.
Can anyone help, please?

England / Re: Ellen Coles b.1865 Coventry?

Frederick George Coles is named as William's father, on his marriage certificate when he married Lena Rose Richards in Swansea in 1919. Frederick George is described as Seaman, Merchant Service
I found Frederick and Ellen travelling to Australia in 1886 on cargo steamship 'Elderslie' out of London going to Albany. I guess Frederick planned to be a gold prospector and indeed Coolgardie where I think I found him was a prospecting area. One scenario is that Ellen returned to England as the children were ill and this could be borne out by the fact that William was in hospital in 1901 in Coventry. The travel manifest does say that H Cole was a farmer and F Cole was a lady so perhaps this is not the same family at all. The older members of the family said that Ellen left her husband in Australia and returned to UK, with the suggestion that she had had enough of the hard life there.
Thanks for the background for Ellen. If it IS her death in Australia she must have returned to be with her husband. I will look for her travel documentation.
Yes I have looked for her other children, but I can't find them on the 1911 census. In 1916 in Frederick George's military record (Ellen's son) his sister Rose is said to be living at 30 Springfield Rd Coventry and his brother William was living in Berkwell. I have yet to search for Ellen at Junction Rd in the 1911 census. Not sure the quickest way to do that.
Thanks for all your efforts
