The early censuses only have names of head of household.

I found
1821 census Poplar
Thos Wybert 11 Regent Street West 8males 7 females
1831 Poplar
Whybard Thos Regent Street Barge builder 5m 4f

1821 Hackney
Whybrow William Morning Lane, Church Street 2m2f

nothing in 1811 Hackney

This is all the information given in those censuses.

Not very helpful but may be later.  I looked at all names beginning with W to find anything similar

Good luck

No one has upset me with their comments

I was also told to find three proofs before adding to your tree.  This is a bit difficult when you get further back.

By the way after 20 years I may have one family back to 1670 but my father's side is only back to 1820.  I have no hope of getting any further.  They lived in London and could have come from anywhere and have a very common name.

I'm not interested in numbers so I've never counted the names in my tree.  I too have been researching for 20 years and have found everything from censuses, BMD and Parish records and wills.  If I have proof I enter siblings. 

I got back to 1670 with one line and created a jig-saw from the parish records back to 15something.  I sent this information to someone telling them it was only a suggestion and I could find no proof.  Guess what it is now on ancestry as part of our tree and lots of other peoples.

I also looked at the IGI for my Channel Islands families(There is no other way for me to do it).  Very interesting.  Some of the people were born before their parents or were 100 years old when they had children.


Trouble is mine are in 5 different counties and would anyone really look at it all.

I really wanted to know how much paperwork to keep but perhaps if I print it all in very small type and use the backs of the paper I may be able to get it into a small package.

Thanks anyway


I'm having a clear out!

My family are not really interested in the family history and I feel 25 files will be too much for them to keep when I have gone so I thought I would try to cut it down.  I keep putting it all on CDs and send out to family members every Christmas.  I could  do some more for my children and grandchildren. Trouble is how many years will they last.

I thought I would keep the basic information like certificates and photos.  Also I thought of doing a family tree for each branch and keeping that.  I could print on the back of the paper to cut down.  With a bit of luck I could restrict the paperwork to two files and perhaps a box of extras.

What do you think?

George Barker married Margaret Smith in 1843 at St Mark Woodhouse

If you look at Freebmd you will find a reference to enable you to buy the certificate which will give his fathers name.


Just found this thread.

Sorry there are no Gobbys in 1811, 1821 Hackney census.
Not in Poplar 1821, 1831

My Granny said she was 21 when she was only 18.  Its a common problem for us researchers.

No not a red book.  It was produced by a member of the family who lives in the area and could have checked all the parish registers.  It was done before freebmd was on the net.
