Family History Beginners Board / Re: Greaves

Thankyou so much Gallium.... Ive wated loads of money looking for greaves on the census at long shots.   Its definetely the right family just didnt realise or think to look for a surname change.   Im new to all this family tree stuff and you've helped me out loads.  Is it common for a surname change and do you have any ideas as to why they would have changed.  Thanks again Michelle!!

Family History Beginners Board / Greaves
« on: Thursday 02 April 09 09:21 BST (UK)  »
Hi,  I was wondering if anyone could help me with my husbands family tree. His Great grandfather was Alfred Greaves born in Yorkshire about 1883 he was a stone mason he married Amelia Fitton. His father was James Greaves born about 1856 in Westmoreland he was also a stonemason he married a Margaret Jane ? I can not trace them beyond the 1901 census they have just vanished, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

First of all thank you for helping.  Starting from where I definetely know my great granddad was Arthur Walter Rudkin born Leicester 1898, his father was Samuel Rudkin born Leicester 1870 married Kate (maiden name unknown) then his father was Joseph Rudkin born Barrow upon Soar 1844 married Harriet (maiden name unknown)
his father is Samuel Rudkin born Barrow upon Soar around 1815 and on his marriage certificate his father is down as a samuel rudkin also ? I hope this makes sense as it's quite confusing.  If anyone could let me know I'm right because everything seems to tally. If I am the only ones I know nothing about is the older Samuel rudkin and my own Great grandad Arthur all I know is he died before my grandad reached 22. Thanks.

Hi,

I am also searching my family tree. Joseph Rudkin of Barrow upon soar married to Harriet is my ggg grandad. I was wondering whether anyone knows anything about his father Samuel he remarried Martha but on his marriage certificate his father is also a Samuel, it is him I am searching for. Any info would be great.
