I suspect this is the family in 1860 in Niagara, NY:

James Waddell           37    England (merchant tailor)
Matilda Waddell           36    Ireland
Thomas Waddell           9    New York
Eliza J Waddell           7    New York
John Waddell                   5    New York

and in 1865:
James Waddell    42    
Matilda Waddell     40    
Thomas C Waddell    14    
Eliza J Waddell      12    
John Waddell              10    
James A Waddell       3

If this is Matilda in the 1911 census in Ontario, she says she emigrated in 1846.

James Waddell    Head    M    47    United States
Matilda Waddell    Mother    F    91    Ireland  (presbyterian)
Eliza Jane Elliot    Sister    F    59    United States

As noted in reply #5 on the thread chempat referred you to, Walter died aged aged 54 in 1936. There was this item in the Weekly Times:

"Walter V. Anderson, 54, of Princes Street  Ballarat, who received head injuries on May 2 in a collision between his bicycle and another cyclist, died on May 14th."

If you use the search on the GRO website with surname COX and mother's maiden name THORN, you should be able to find her siblings

(free to search, though you need to register)

Was just about to post the same possible marriage of Henry and Elizabeth, agree with you libby  ;)

(I think it's ok to post the transcription of the 1911 census that appears on familysearch as it's available and free to search now.)

Hello Sammy, and welcome from me too.

On the GRO website you can search for births, which gives this possible:

Patrick Henry Arthur COLLINS  birth registered September quarter 1907 at Stepney (01C/370) and mother's maiden name SULLIVAN. If you ordered this certificate (or if you have seen it online) then hopefully the info contained will confirm whether it is your grandfather.

Other childen registered at Stepney that have the name COLLINS and SULLIVAN include Kathleen Esther in 1912, Grace Annie in 1903 and Elizabeth Matilda in 1902. Do you know of any of your grandfather's siblings?

Based on the names above, it is possible that this is the family in the 1911 census at Limehouse:
Henry Collins        35    Poplar, London  (gas works labourer)
Elizabeth Sullivan    31    Stepney, London
Elizabeth Collins    9    Limehouse, London
Grace Collins       7    Limehouse, London
Henry Collins            3    Limehouse, London
John Collins            1    Canning Town, Essex

GBC/1911/RG14/01554/0295/5 (page 1)

(Possible birth for John registered at West Ham 1909)

No worries again! Always good to have confirmation of info - even if it's to disprove a connection.  :)

Thanks Rosie, I should try to remember that.  ;)

Also, a report of an equity suit in 1878 regarding the estate of Sarah KEEBLE of Great Oakley (J B HEMPSON was one of the executors) naming many grandchildren including Susannah SKEET (widow).

The Ipswich Journal. (Mar. 12, 1878)
 I could also send you this article if you're interested.  :)

Looking also at the HEMPSON line, there was an inquest into the death of Susannah's grandfather Nathaniel (farmer and schoolmaster at Ramsey) aged 75 in 1854 - "Found dead", most likely heart disease. Mentions his son Joseph Benjamin HEMPSON, grocer of Great Oakley as a witness.
Chelmsford Chronicle. (Mar. 31, 1854)

Not sure why I can't attach the image here, but if you'd like to see the article send me a pm.  ;)
