I have just been searching for an Edward Owens born in Hanley Staffordshire in c 1868,who is showing on the 1891 Census for England to be living with his Wife Hannah T Owens(Nee Mountford) and her Parents Thomas and Eliza Mountford(Nee Taylor) in Hanley Staffordshire.There is no sign of this Edward and Hannah Owens in the UK 1901 Census,but there is an Entry on the search I did for an Edward Owens in the 1901 Canada Census.I may be cluching at straws!,but could someone look up the Entry please in the 1901 Canada Census.

Derbyshire / Stephens Family Cresswell Derbyshire.
« on: Wednesday 26 July 06 22:11 BST (UK)  »
After all the excellent help I have had in locating Cresswell,I am now looking for some Stephens relatives who lived there.A Charles Stephens was born in Cefn Mawr in c 1905,and I was told by his niece this Evening that he went to live in Creswell Derbyshire,and that he was the father of ten children.III have no idea who he may have married,but his Niece informs me that one of the children was named Brian.I can only estimate that he would have lived in the area from around 1930.I am sorry that I don't have any more definite info,and would appreciate any help in perhaps locating any descendants.
