London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Re: Death of Mabel Alice Barker
« on: Tuesday 07 July 15 13:42 BST (UK)  »
Like you say she could be anywhere with such a common name,I just have a feeling she died in London.
I've just found her on 1961 Electoral Roll on her own in the house where her father lived until his death. Laura was living in Hove at this time but mabel could have gone to Australia I have Mabel's Birth Certificate but there's nothing to say she used this.Laura knocked 8 years of her age when she married.
I was just hopeful that another pair of eyes might spot something I had missed.
Thank you for your input anyway

Thanks everyone for your replies
I have Isabella's death in Hove 1953.I think this must have been the daughter's Laura's area as I have her now married Laura Maxton who in 1959 was living at 59 BrunswickSq. Hove.Whether she was just visiting when she died I'm not sure but Laura was the informant at her fathers death in 1959 St Nicholas Hospital Plumstead.Laura's address is still the same in Hove.
I can only find Mabel in the 1939 Electoral Rolls living with sister Laura in Foolscroy Rd SE London.
I know the two sisters visited Canada in the 1920's but returned,I cant find any other migration for Mabel but Laura emigrates to Australia in 1968

Can anyone fine a date of death for Mabel Alice Barker.She was born 18 July 1904 to Robert Barker and Isabella Barker nee Smith.The last information I have of her is an address in 1951 at Cotleigh Rd Hampstead.I don't think she married although her sister Laura May married well into her 40's in York to Andrew Maxton.
The sisters both worked in the secretarial dept. of Weldon Patterns.
I really hope someone can help,I've been searching for many years for this record
Thank you

Canada Lookup Request / Re: Renshaw Family
« on: Thursday 08 August 13 20:12 BST (UK)  »
Thank you for your interest.
The Bernard and Percy Renshaw were the sons of Bernard Renshaw [Jeweller] and Grandsons of William Renshaw and Alice Eccles.Their mother Rosina Broomhead died 1918 and their father remarried Kathleen Ross Spray.I have been in contact with the Spray family who know  nothing of the 2 brothers but have information on the other brother Arnold.
I think there may have been a family upset but I would love to know what happened to Bernard and Percy.
Thank you

Derbyshire / Bradwell Burials?
« on: Sunday 20 July 08 18:40 BST (UK)  »
I'm trying to find out where a burial would take place for a death in Bradwell.They are father and daughter Edward Smith b.1864 and Elsie[Smith]Bradshaw b.1895.
I haven't found dates of death but know that Elsie lived about 40 years in Derbyshire.Her father may have lived with her.Originally he was born in Scotland and lived in York and Sheffield where Elsie was born.
I would be most grateful if anyone has any suggestions as to where they might be buried
Thank you

Hi Heywood
This all looks so promising.I'm not so sure about Hannah being Johns Mother but the other 1841 and 1851 Census looks very promising.
I have a copy of a Baptism Manchester Parish Church Aug 1833 of John son of John and Margaret Strickland.Under this it says something which could be "otherwise" Strickleton.The father John is a Spinner
John b 1833 marries Elizabeth Calvert 1853 Occ Dresser and at his son John George's baptism 1857[all at Manchester Cathedral] he is a Dyer.
It seems the family exchanged the hell holes of the Manchester Textile Industry for the hell holes of the Sheffield Steel Works and associated industries.
I've still a lo of checking to do but I do thank you so much for finding this information for me.
Best Wishes

Hello Heywood
This seems so promising for the 1861 Census.There was a rumour that the family were called Strickleton so it looks exciting.
I'm out for the day but cant wait to persue further
Thank you so much

Hello Everyone
Thank you all for your input.I will fill in the information I have.Sarah Ann's father was John Strickland married Elizabeth Calvert  Dec 1853 at
Cath& Parish Church Manchester
Occupation: Dresser
Address 24 Mount St Ancoats
Father: John Strickland Spinner.
Cant find anything after this until the 1881 Census RG11/4665 Attercliffe[Sheffield]
John George[23] Manchester
Elizabeth[16]            "
Sarah Ann[11]          "
David [9]             Sheffield
Job[7]                       "
I think with the large gaps in the childrens ages that many might have died.
In the 1891 Census Sarah is now married to Frank Cooper with daughters Eleanor and Sarah E but still living with her parents John and Elizabeth.
This is the Census that states Sarah Ann was born in Newton Manchester
Its a very elusive family,I thought I'd found John b.c1833 in Manchester in the 1841 1851 and 1861 Census but this one was a Mechanic and married a Mary Ann.So up a wrong tree again.
I hope these extra details will help and thank you all for taking the time to look for me
