Family History Beginners Board / Ann (Annie) Lee
« on: Sunday 08 August 21 19:42 BST (UK)  »
I'm hoping to find out where Ann (Annie) Lee who died on 13 July 1884 at the age of 27 in Blackburn Lancashire is buried, she was the wife of John Lee, married in 1882 in Blackburn.
Can anyone suggest a way how I can find the burial place of Ann?

You can do a street search using FindMyPast.
Just tried it on Ancestry & you can do it on there also.

I'm having difficulty finding the the street address search link on Ancestry, please can someone advise how?

Is there a way of searching street names to find out names of the people that occupied the houses on King Street Bacup when the 1911 census was done?

one to consider

Baptism: 30 Sep 1847 St Simon and St Jude, Manchester, Lancashire, England
John Smith - Son of James Smith & Elizabeth
Born: 20 Aug 1847
Abode: Openshaw
Occupation: Spinner
Baptised by: John Bywater

Thank you for all the information above on this subject.

I think the above James Smith and Elizabeth Smith (mn Gerrard) are Louisa's parents and her brother John, the information I have is that Louisa was born in Openshaw around 1850 but I am struggling to find a baptism to confirm her birth date.

Is this the family?
New Road Halliwell
Elizabeth Smith   Head 49 born Leigh Lancashire Cotton weaver
Mary Ann Smith   Daughter 28 born Tyldesley, Lancashire  Cotton Frame Tenter
Sarah Smith Daughter 19 born leigh lancashire Cotton Weaver
Ann Smith   Daughter 16 Cotton weaver
John Smith Son 13 born Bolton Cotton Piecer
Louisa Smith Daughter 10 born Openshaw Scholar
Charles Smith Son 6 born Openshaw

There's a very good chance this is my Louisa, where did you find this record as I can't find it, hopefully there could be an 1851 & 1871 record.

Sorry, that should have read Annie - not Andy - my iPad ‘corrects’ me all the time.

I don’t know re Margaret, I was just saying the baptism is in the parish of Armagh in County Armagh.

With regard to the Farrell marriage, there are two births on Lancashire BMD - Thomas and Alice but there are also deaths for both so it is hard to track the family.

I have just been looking again nothing for John Rogers birth but have FOUND on UK Prison Hulk Register a John Rogers age 19 in Worcester convicted 16 Oct 1827 sentenced on 3 Nov 1827 for 14 years but was discharged in March 1828 the ship was called the Ganeymeade I couldn't read what the crime was
But wonder if this could be him seeing as we know his son Felix was born in Worcester
Have decided I will have to try and get to Ireland and hopefully find him

If I recall, the father's occupation for Felix fits - a Traveller and I was thinking they may have travelled around before settling but that is just a thought.

The writing is difficult in 1851 and hearing and spelling maybe not so good  ;)

I interpreted Margaret’s birthplace which looks like ‘Dromante’ as Dromintee.
The parish of Dromintee is quite a distance from the parish of Armagh where that birth of Margaret Murphy is recorded and then there is the distance between Donegal and Armagh so it is not easy. There is also a lack of records for that time.

Lastly, I wondered if Andy could be Annie or similar (misheard or spelling).
There is a Preston marriage for Ann Rogers and Patrick Farrell 1851 so they should be on the census but I can’t see them. Again just a thought.

Hi again, so do you think that's not Margaret Murphy who married John Rogers
Also the name down on 1841 census is Aimee I assumed it was Amy so will look into it being Ann did wonder had she died before the 1851 census but have looked on LMBD  and can't find a death have found her elder brother Johns marriage  he married in Blackburn and the occupation of the father is described as an hawker
My line is from Bernard who married a Mary Colbert who was also from Ireland they married in 1861 as I said have done all of the Rogers family except Aimee ? and finding a marriage and baptism for John I agree over the years been mislead with name spellings etc but I have tried and clarified my research at Lancashire Records Office in Preston
