Buckinghamshire Lookup Requests / John Smith c1807. Chesham, Bucks.
« on: Saturday 08 January 11 18:40 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all.

I cannot find this family in 1841 census, so maybe someone could check Chesham PR's please.

From 1851 census. HO107 - Piece 1717 - F.259 - P.9

Living in the Hamlet of Botley, Chesham.

John Smith c1807. Chesham.  occ. Farm lab.
Mary Smith c.1810. Chesham.  occ. Plait maker.
Sarah Ann Smith. c1832.
Ann Smith c1836.
William Smith c1841.
Henry Smith. c1843.
James c1846.
Unity  c1850.

All children born Chesham.

Suspicions that Mary could be 2nd spouse for John Smith.

(In 1841, there is a John Smith(1786 ) with spouse of Sarah (1786 ) and children John and Sarah. but maybe a totally different family))

Also parents for John SMITH please, if possible.  And first spouse and mother of Sarah Ann, if my suspicions are found to be true.

Thank you.

Steve. :)

Oxfordshire / James Hawkins marriage.
« on: Monday 03 January 11 22:21 GMT (UK)  »
Is there any way of checking James Hawkins marriage to Annie Carman in 1883, without getting a cert.

j/a/s 1883. Oxford district. V.3a - P.1095.

I just need to know fathers name if possible.  Mother appears to be Salome Carman(nee.Trotman).

Father maybe Arthur Carman.

The Lighter Side / Slow Certs delivery
« on: Sunday 02 January 11 11:23 GMT (UK)  »
I live in Ireland, after deserting England for a quieter life.

If I order certs from the GRO, they generally take 7-8 days to arrive. (I am OK with this.).

10 days before Christmas I did a bit of online shopping at Amazon.   It was a large item, but arrived in under 3 days from time of ordering it. :o

Perhaps I should order my certs boxed up. ;D

Oxfordshire Lookup Requests / Henry Hawkins c1864. Sandford St.Martin.
« on: Wednesday 15 December 10 20:54 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,

Could SKS have a look for a baptism please for Henry Hawkins  c1864. Sandford St.Martin. Oxon, and sibling brothers**.

Parents are William Henry Hawkins(Occ.Farmer) and Eliza Hawkins(nee.Wheeler).

Siblings are Eliza Emma.(c1857. Fritwell), William** (c.1860, Sandford) and James**(c1861. Sandford).

I have the Eliza Emma Hawkins, baptism in Fritwell in 1857.


EDITED d.o.b for Henry Hawkins as 1864 instead of 1860.

Whilst hunting down relatives using various tried methods.   I have usually taken the year of baptism as an approximate years of birth.

However.  I have since found that quite a big lump of one family were baptised in one 'job lot'.   The oldest sibling being 12 years older than the youngest sibling.
These occured in 1870.  Obviously I had the census to help me out with ages, so on the strength of those I ordered certs.
If we get back to baptisms in earlier years, say 1750's.  Any given child could have been born 10 years earlier, considering what I have since found out in 1870
So when looking for marriages, an assumption can be made that the particular person could only be 10-12 years old at marriage given the baptism year, and discard the marriage.

So how do you sort it out, if the marriage found is the only feasible one, if the baptism is right as well. :D

Cheshire Lookup Requests / Thomas Burgess c1843. Northwich/Witton
« on: Tuesday 16 November 10 12:46 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all, I'm at a complete dead end looking for this fella's parentage.

1861 census. Thomas Burzess  1844. Northwick.  Lodger in Farnworth and Widnes.
1871 census. Thomas Burgess  1844. Northwich.  Boarder in Altrincham.
1881 census.  Thomas Burgess  1845. Northwich.  Attendant/Plasterer. in Prestwich.
1891 census.  Thomas Burgess  1844. Northwich.  in Altrincham.
1901 census.  Thomas Burgess  1844. Witton.  in Altrincham.(Dunham Massey).

Married Mary Ann Graham in 1867.Dunham Massey.
Informant on father in laws death cert in Dec.1881
Occupation of Plasterer/Master Plasterer on his marriage cert, and his son's Joseph Graham Burgess birth cert and marriage cert.
Have not found him and family in 1911.  Too many possible deaths to follow him up on.
Father on his marriage cert is Joseph Murry. Occ.Labourer. And no trace of him either.
Purchased all certs for the area of his birth, and no luck.

Any ideas anyone.
