Nottinghamshire Lookup Requests / Wilkinson 1881 & 1891 census
« on: Thursday 29 March 18 19:11 BST (UK)  »
Hi I have found a James W Wilkinson and wife Lydia with children and a mother in law Caroline Wilkinson on the 1901 census in East Retford Notts. James was born 1873/74 in Retford. I am trying to find him and his parents on the 1881 and 1891 census but nothing is coming up. It says his mum Caroline was born in Bolsover Derbyshire C1866. Nothing is coming up for the 1911 census either. It says Caroline is widowed on the 1901 census. Lydia's maiden name was Saxilby.
Any help would be appreciated.

Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / George Arthur Thompson B 1941
« on: Wednesday 07 February 18 13:27 GMT (UK)  »
Hi i am posting this for a friend. George Arthur Thompson was her nannas brother, he was placed in Dr Barnardos in Hull around 1953/54 after his mother died. They were later told he had been shipped to Australia either for adoption or he was adopted before he went. There seems to be a bit of confusion as she was told the home was on Holderness rd but when i checked it was on Beverley rd and was called Open every Door and closed in 1951. Does anyone have info on any other Dr Barnardos homes around Hull for this period of time.

Australia / George Arthur Thompson
« on: Wednesday 07 February 18 01:39 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to locate a George Arthur Thompson born England 1941, mothers maiden name Adams. As far as I know he was put into Dr Barnardo's home at Hull England after his mum died. He was sent out to Australia for adoption whilst he was very young. I have searched the Australian archives passenger lists and there was a Master George Arthur shipped out in 1947 to Fremantle on the Esperance Bay ship. It does not give his age but the address he was sent to was Bath Street, Manjimup WA. I don't know if this was the address of the adoptees as there was another little girl going to the same address.  He will be in his 70's by now and a possibility he could have passed on.  George was my grandma's brother and she spent years trying to find him, I made her a promise before she died that I would try and find what happened to him. If anyone has any info  I would be very grateful.

Yorkshire (West Riding) / Lancaster bombers factory Doncaster
« on: Thursday 09 November 17 12:07 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, can anyone tell me where the factory was in Doncaster where they used to rivet the panels for the Lancaster bombers during the war. I was watching women at war and a lady from Lincolnshire said she used to work there during the war putting rivets in the panels. She also said it was a very large factory. Name and area would be brilliant. Finningley aerodrome may be a clue but not sure.

« on: Tuesday 29 August 17 13:25 BST (UK)  »
Hi I am trying to find a marriage for Ernest Tippet born in Guernsey around 1911 givevand take a few years.  I know he was married then presumably divorced with a daughter. He married my aunty Johan Sutherland later on but we cannot find a marriage for them anywhere. As far as I know they were living in London but I am beginning to think they weren't married after all.
