Sussex / Re: Mary Peryer née Fuller - Date of death

Thank you!

I have just looked at the British Newspaper Archives and there were Puryers in Sussex, so it is possible they mistook the name Perrier for Puryer. Fingers crossed!

Thank you, Osprey. That is well possible that the age is wrong. I shall order the death certificate today and let you know what it says..... I can't go the local bistro, so I may as well spend my hot chocolate money on something useful!!

Thank you everyone for all the replies.   I have been working through them, with my calculator!!

Millie - I didn't know I could check the ages on the GRO index. Very useful to know and I shall do that in future. I have just checked and my order was definitely for a Mary Perryer (info from Free BMD).

Omega and Osprey - That must be her burial! I couldn't read the address in the 1841 census, but now I can see it is definitely Smithers. But it doesn't seem possible that the Mary Puryer can be her if the age is only 29.

I'll do some hunting tomorrow, but if you have any other information or help it will be very gratefully received!

Good idea... but the youngest child (as far as I know)  was born in 1847, so unfortunately (but not for him ;D) it won't help us.

The Peryer is mispelt the whole time which is an added difficulty.

Sussex / Mary Peryer née Fuller - Date of death
« on: Friday 22 January 21 15:18 GMT (UK)  »
Good afternoon,

I am trying to find the death of Mary Peryer (could be spelt Perryer, or Perrier), née Fuller. According to the 1851 census, she was born in abt 1813 in Rudgwick. In the 1861 census, Thomas (living in Rudgwick) is a widower.

According to other trees on Ancestry, her death was in 1857. I ordered the death cert and have just received it. I am pretty sure it is not my Mary Peryer.                 

The death certificate states the following : name Mary Perver, widow of Thomas Perver, a Miller. Informant Charlotte Perver. Died 25th January 1857, aged 78, in Compton.           I have found a Thomas Perver on FreeBMD, death registered in Chichester in 1843, also a Charlotte Perver who died in Sussex in 1877. So it certainly looks as if the info on the Ancestry trees is wrong.

But I cannot find my Mary Peryer! The exact address in the 1851 census is Mill Hill, Rudgwick.

I would be very grateful for any help in finding the right Mary Peryer.

Many thanks

Oh dear.... unless he was haunting them?  ::)

I am also trying to find somewhere I can see or even buy back copies of the "Assurance Agents' Chronicle".  Again I have looked and looked on internet, but although I can find references to the Chronicle, I cannot find the thing itself. When Christopher was sacked from the bakery, he became an insurance agent and joined the National Amalgamated Union of Life Assurance Agents, later becoming the Secretary - for 37 years!

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Hi Stan,
Thank you very much for the information.

I have had a quick look in the British Newspaper Archives and found a reference, in 1911, to a "Mr Lancaster, Liberal, Haggerston". As he is talking about public houses without beer and cruelty to children often being due to drink, I am pretty sure that this is my grandfather.

Nice to see he might have rubbed shoulders with Chesterton and Morris!

In the 1911 census he was working as a Bakers Roundsman, probably for Lyons. He later lost his job for bringing 150 women out on strike.

Thank you again

Tilly

The Common Room / Hampshire House Parliament
« on: Monday 12 October 20 15:43 BST (UK)  »
Good afternoon,

I have just found some information about my grandfather, Christopher Lancaster, who apparently campaigned with Lloyd George and Campbell Bannermann in 1910 and then became "Commissioner of Works in the Hampshire House Parliament in 1911". I cannot find any information at all on internet. What was the Hampshire House Parliament" ???

I would be very grateful for any help.

Many thanks

Tilly ???
