Limerick / James Fraser (Fraher) 1816
« on: Tuesday 21 July 09 00:32 BST (UK)  »
I have recently traced my GG grandparents to Co. Limerick.

James Fraser (or Fraher) married Bridget Hayes on the 3 March 1839 at Galbally & Aherlow, Co. Limerick.   They had a son Patrick who was born 1840 in Limerick (from English census)

The family moved to London around 1840/1841 because Mary Ann was born in 1842 at Westminster, and Bridget was born 1844/45 in Holborn.

Patrick was my G Grandfather and his daughter Mary Jane Fraser (born 1869) was my grandmother.

I had traced my G Grandfather and had the names of James & Bridget Fraser (both born about 1816) from the English 1861 census but nothinh else. After posting a request on the London and Middlesex forum (last week) I identified Mary and Bridget and other family connections though which I was lucky to get in touch with other (unknown to me) family researchers who provided the Hayes connection with the Limerick marriage date.

However it also appears that these very experienced reseachers have been trying to trace the family in Ireland since at least 2001.

Following the unbelieveable success from my posting on the London/Middlesex forum I thought I would post this request on the Irish forum in the hope that someone out there would have the answer or suggest where I should go now.

My aunt returned from London to a small Welsh village in 1935 for her wedding.  The story goes that nobody locally had ever seen a wedding cake like hers before and it was put on show for the whole village.  Unfortunately the photo is not very good, can anything be done with it?

I also post a photo of my Aunt Kate and her husband Ron.  You are welcome to use it if you wish Geordielass.

Glamorganshire Lookup Requests / Morgan Brothers Boxers - Tir Phil
« on: Saturday 18 July 09 10:12 BST (UK)  »
Have recently found out that the Morgan brothers from Tir Phil, all very good boxers, were cousins of my mother Mother Maud Jenkins (born 1903).

There were at least 6 boys in the family, Danny, Terrence, Jack, Dai, George and Reg.  I have uncovered boxing records and some details of some fights (Danny V Tancy Lee, and George V Billy Rose).

I am trying to find the connection between my mother and the Morgans, i.e. was it through her fathers side, Jenkins, or mothers, Carter.

I know that Danny was born around 1899, but I have been unable to locate the family on either the 1901 or 1911 census.

Anyone out there know the family.

Regards

Am at a full stop on my G Grandmother Margaret Fraser.  I believe that she was born about 1842 in Ireland and that she married Patrick Fraser about 1867 (not found marriage so don't know maiden name). 

However I have her death certificate and the informant is a B Knight sister-in-law who was at the time living at 39 Gravel Lane, Blackfriars.

I don't know if B Knight her brothers wife, or her husbands sister?

Any ideas how I can find who was living at 39 Gravel Lane in 1876,  the 1881 census has not been very helpful.

Thanks

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Adeline Louise Denham
« on: Sunday 12 July 09 19:50 BST (UK)  »
Looking for a birth registration for my aunt Adeline Louise Denham. 

On the 1911 census she is shown as being 5 years old and born in Dalston London, but no registration shown on FreeBMD. 

Her sister Katherine May 6 years old in 1911 and also shown on census as born in Dalston has a birth registered Dec qtr 1904 in St Giles.  Any ideas of where I can now look for Adeline birth?

Thanks for any help -  (first post for help)
