London and Middlesex / Re: William NEWLAND born 1815

Many thanks - I noticed this on familysearch and have it noted.
But as far as I know the police records will give his date of birth and parents names - it's this I would like someone to look at - I live in Portrush, Co Antrim so cannot do the research myself.

London and Middlesex / William NEWLAND born 1815
« on: Thursday 08 March 12 17:48 GMT (UK)  »
William Newland was born in Lambeth in 1815 - unknown parents
He married a Sarah and had at least 7 children.
On 1851 census for Cowley, Middlesex - shows all family - he was a Policeman.
Eldest child Emma born 1844 in Cowley.
Moved circa 1855, to Kensington.
Sarah is shown at Kentbury Cottage - as married - no William present.
Is there anybody who could check any police lists or enrollment listings to get any further info on him and possibly his parents.
many thanks

Australia / Re: Isabella McHENRY nee ALGEO

Sisters of Isabella McHenry nee Algeo - all born in Letterkenny, Co Donegal
parents William Algeo and Catherine Pinkerton
Rebecca Ann 1833 - married Matthew Hicks 1861 - no children found in Ireland
Sarah Jane 1836 - no marriage
Alexander 1838
Isabella 1841 ( above) - emigrated according to the DC in 1861
Catherine 1842 married David Kerr - no children found in Ireland
I cannot find any of the above with a death reference in Ireland - so had presumed they all emigrated.
William definately alive in 1857 - griffiths valuation of Dooballagh townland.
Most of William's siblings went to the Philadelphia area.

Finally managed to upload the death cert for Isabella McHenry with the unknown informants name - I had thought it was N. Bright - a niece - but am open to other suggestions.

Renfrewshire / Hamilton children - lost orphans ?
« on: Saturday 03 March 12 20:33 GMT (UK)  »
John William Hamilton ( a coalmaster) married Agnes Robina McGregor Smith in 1884 in Glasgow.
They lived at Albert Road, Cathcart.
He died 11 Dec 1893 - she died 29 May 1895.
They left four children - James born 1884, Agnes 1886, John William 1887 and Margaret McQueen Hamilton born 1889. all born Cambuislang - the eldest child was aged 11 years when his mother died.
Both parents left a will, and inventories, with substantial bequests.
I had presumed that the children would have been looked after by one of their aunts or uncles.
On the mothers side - NO
Same for the fathers side - I have researched each aunt and uncle on the 1891, 1901 census - none of the above children were with them in 1901.
The scottish origins web site search engine is pretty hopeless for looking for an indivudial on the census, no birth location is mentioned until you purchase the census extract - so it makes it rather difficult to try and find any of these children.
Has anyone any ideas of how to search for them ??
Many thanks - David Beck

I cannot upload the jpeg file of the death certificate - anybody any suggestions ?
The informants name would be extremely important as she is a niece - I had thought this was N. BRIGHT
Many thanks to all those who are helping me - I am extremely grateful.
