Kent Completed Lookup Requests / 1851 Census - surname BURGESS
« on: Sunday 24 July 05 04:25 BST (UK)  »
hello all
If you like a challenge I have one for you.
I am trying to find the following family:

BURGESS, John and Mary Ann Burgess and daughter Phillis (could be Phylis etc). I am aware that John and Mary had Phillis baptised in Chevening on 16 feb 1851. We are also aware, and so far the birth regeistration is missing, from her death certificate/memorial card in Australia, that PHILLIS was born 23 November 1850. Unfortunatley the listing just says Kent, England.
Mary Ann and John's marriage has likewise evaded me - I have tried a few - and am thinking that the best possible is one Sevenoaks or one in Ryarsh. But neither standout.

John died in Kent, death not found either, no fixed date, and Mary and Phillis emigrated to Australia prior to Mary's subsequent remarriage in 1855. So we presume that John died between 1850 and 1855.

Mary Ann was previously a hand-maid to Queen Victoria - again unproven - have writen twice with different combinations of possible surnames to B/Palace to try to confirm maiden surname to no avail.
Thanks for trying to assist me in anticipation.

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / 1841 census help needed - WILSON
« on: Thursday 21 April 05 14:30 BST (UK)  »
I have this reference for Henry Wilson (b c 1827) in the 1851 Census has a Henry WILSON, unmarried, 24 born Not Known, Ag Servant, Holbeach Marsh. With the family of William ELLISS (Farmer of 80 acres - had 3 other Ag Servants) H0107/2097/488.

And this I believe to be accurate for my Henry Wilson - what I would love to find is him in the 1841 Census. His father, according to his marriage certificate (15 May 1851) was William WILSON. The marriage took place in the Parish Church of Holbeach to an Elizabeth Hannett (I have most of the history on the Hannett's of Holbeach - IGI and Familiy History Book). Witnesses to the marriage where Joseph Vines and Mary Ann Wiley. All parties signed with an X.

Henry's death certificate (c 1867) in Victoria, Aust, states his place of birth as Holbeach, Lincolnshire in 1827 (No fixed dob).

If anybody can help I would appreciate your time.

Thanks in advance
