The Common Room / Re: How can I find gt grandparentsí missing children?
« on: Wednesday 30 November 22 16:25 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,

The mother's maiden name isn't on freebmd pre 1911 but it is on the GRO site that Daisy has posted.

If you know your great-grandfather's surname and his wife's maiden name you can search for children using those names. You just enter their surnames but don't name the child. You can do 5 years at a time working forward from the date of their marriage. You can work out the date they married from the 1911 census.

Hope this helps

Derbyshire / Re: Thomas Arthur Pickard Henderson b 1892

May be on the wrong track but I think worth looking at as on the 1891 census there is an Arthur Henderson, aged 18 living with his parents, Thomas Henderson, a publican, and Mary. Arthur is an assistant, and they were at The Station Inn, Heanor.

Could his parents have married after his birth or not at all?

On the GRO there is a Thomas Arthur Pickard D1892 Basford

Added - Forgot to mention that there isn't a mother's maiden name on the record

Like so many, very sad news. I enjoyed reading Guy's posts over many years and am grateful for the help he gave me.

My condolences to his family. I hope they see just how much he was appreciated.

New Zealand Completed Requests / Re: TANFIELD Samuel 1841-1900 Who were his parents ?
« on: Thursday 15 September 22 08:32 BST (UK)  »
Mmm,  can see the problem. The Samuel Tanfield b. 1841 Thirsk is with parents Thomas and Mary in 1841 and 1851 in Thirsk and boarding in Ripon in 1861. Can't see him after this which would tie in with him going to NZ. Thomas is not a farmer.

However, we know information on the death certificate is only as reliable as the informant's knowledge so there is a possibility that may be inaccurate.

I can't see another suitable Samuel Tanfield b. 1841 in Yorkshire.

Do NZ marriage certificates give the father's name and occupation? If so that would be my next step. I'm assuming that you don't have any certain link for Samuel with one of his siblings.

If you need the census entries let me know.

Census Lookup and Resource Requests / Re: Request for Birth Info Hannah (Parker) Winn

Seelife,

Sorry, I added some useless information. Hadn't realised that Pelton came under Chester-le-Street rather than Durham- no wonder I was struggling to find siblings. I have amended my post so as not to mislead anyone and will go off and read the earlier threads about name changes

Looking at the birth registration of Thomas Winn March quarter 1864 on the GRO site the mother's maiden name looks to be Price.

Are you looking into the mother of Thomas b. 1864 Perkinsville, Pelton, Durham or have I misunderstood you?

Brie

Amended - It seems Pelton comes under Chester-le-Street not Durham so not your registration

Cumberland / Alfred George Pettitt 1856-1883
« on: Sunday 14 August 22 18:10 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone can help. I am researching the Pettitts for a friend and when I first started I'm sure I saw something about this young man's death in the newspapers. I have just got to him in my writing up, cannot find the reference in my papers (another self-reprimand for disgraceful disorderliness) and at the moment don't have access to newspapers. His death is registered D1883 Cockermouth and he was a photographer. He is buried with his parents and other family members in Keswick.

If anyone can tell me what it was about his death I'd be very grateful.
