I have trouble finding the marriage and the death of Elizabeth LEES. She was born in 1849 in Oldham, Lanc. (GRO Oldham 1849 D 20 660), baptized 6 Jan 1850 CoE St Thomas in Leesfield, Lanc.
Her parents were William Lees (1828-1899) and Matty Wain (1828-1853). (Her father remarried, 1854, Amelia Winterbottom.)
I find Elizabeth in the 1851 and 1861 census, but after that I loose her.

Any help wll be appreciated.

Carlow / Cannot find Joseph John Reilly in 1901 and 1911 census
« on: Sunday 10 April 22 12:44 BST (UK)  »
Joseph John REILLY was born 28 Dec 1880 in Montgomery Street, Carlow, as son of James Reilly (baker) and Ellen Deegan. I think (not sure!) he died as a bachelor on 30 Dec 1951 in Edenberry, Co. Offaly.
I can't find him in the 1901 and 1911 census. He is not with his parents in 1901 and 1911.
Can anyone of you find him in the censuses?

Kildare / Matthew Kay, married 11 Jan 1883 Monasterivan, Co. Kildare, sought
« on: Friday 11 March 22 11:34 GMT (UK)  »
Matthew Kay married 11 January 1883 in Monasterivan, Co. Kildare, with Elizabeth Eustace. Elizabeth was baptized RC 9 April 1854 in Monasterivan, and died there 2 September 1892. They had one son, Michael, born 11 January 1884 Athy, Co. Kildare.

I seem to be unable to find the birth/baptism and death of Matthew Kay. Any help is welcome.

I seem to be unable to find the death of Arthur Stanley PEARCE, born 15 May 1908 Cardiff. He married  Phyllis Irene Norman on 21 Apr 1930 in Sully, Glamorganshire. After the death of Phyllis in 1963, he married Ellen Winifred Mary Ellis on 21 May 1977 Colwyn. This Ellen remarried on 30 Nov 1987 in South Glamorgan Dennis Arlwyn Jones. Thus, Arthur Stanley Pearce must have died between 1977 and 1987, but I cannot find him. Can you?

Lancashire Lookup Requests / Death sought for couple William Kane x Bridget O'Neil
« on: Saturday 05 March 22 18:43 GMT (UK)  »
I have been unable to find the death of the couple
William Kane (also Cain, Kean), bapt. RC 24-11-1823 in Newry, Co. Down, and
Bridget O'Neil (also O'Neal), bapt. RC 11-05-1829 Armagh, Co. Armagh.
They married on 18-10-1844 in Newry, Co. Down.
The couple had seven children, as follows:
Anne, bapt. RC 14-02-1847 Clonallen, Do. Down
Anne, bapt. RC 01-01-1849 Clonallen, Co. Down
Thomas, bapt. RC 27-07-1850 Clonallen, Do. Down
James, bapt. RC 25-06-1854 Liverpool (St Patrick)
Rose Ann, bapt. RC 13-04-1856 Liverpool (St Patrick)
John, bapt. RC 03-05-1858 Clonallen, Do. Down
Alice, born 24-01-1861 West Derby, Lancashire.

I find the couple, as lodgers, without children, in the 1851 census in Toxteth Park, West Derby, Liverpool. William is carpenter.
I find the couple, with five children, in the 1861 census in 35 Fisher Street, Toxteth Park, West Derby, Liverpool. William is ship joiner.
In the 1871 census, I find at 29 Fisher Street, Toxteth Park, West Derby, Liverpool, mother Bridget with the children James, Rose Ann, John and Alice.
In the original census form, the word "wife" is crossed out after Bridget Cain's name. No mention is made of her husband (nor of her being a widow).
I do not find William in 1871 or later.

I have been unable to find death dates that fit these data for William and Bridget. Any help will be highly appreciated. (I searched in ancestry, FindMyPast and, without success.)

I have been trying in vain to find the death of my ancestor Thomas REILLY. He was baptized RC on 01 Jan 1822 in St Alban's RC Church in Doonane Parish, Co. Laois. He married Margaret Brennan on 30 Sep 1846. She was baptized on 01 Sep 1824 in Graiguecullen/Killeshin Parish, and died 24 Feb 1889, townland Drumagh, SRD Carlow, RD Ballickmoyler, Co. Queens. Thomas Reilly, the widower, is the informant on her death certificate.

I have been unable to find the death of Thomas Reilly. Any help will be highly appreciated.

Lanarkshire / Looking for John Stewart, born circa 1868 Lanarkshire
« on: Tuesday 04 January 22 17:33 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying, so far in vain, to find the birth (or baptism) of John Stewart, born (according to the 1871 census) around 1868, in Anderston, Lanarkshire. His parents were Walter Stewart and Sophia Strain. Help will be appreciated.

I have the marriage certificate of Edward Charles SEEGER and Jessie MANLEY, who married on 14 March 1875 in Bethnal Green. The address of the man is given as "3 31 Wellington House" and of the wife as "8 4 ditto". The couple had two children prior to this marriage: Edward, born 1869 Bethnal Green, and Jessie, born 1874 Bethnal Green. After their marriage, they got 5 more children.

I was wondering whether any of you know what Wellington House was. I do not see it in the listings of Poor Houses. Thank you for any suggestion what accommodation this pair lived in.

Down / birth/baptism sought of Arthur Fagan, around 1852 C. Down
« on: Monday 13 December 21 12:08 GMT (UK)  »
The couple Arthur Fegan (also spelled Fagan) and Catharine McClory married on 18-10-1839 in Newry, Co. Down. They get 13 children: first four in Annaghlone, Co Down (1841-1845), then four in Liverpool (1847-1854), and finally five in  Kilcoo, Co. Down.
I have found RC baptism records for all but one: Arthur, named after his father, who according to the census record of 1871 was born circa 1852 in Liverpool. Her married 8 July 1872 in Liverpool with Elizabeth Downes. Any help in finding the birth or baptism of this Arthur will be greatly appreciated.
