Wiltshire / Gideon Roberts (1856-1929)
« on: Sunday 25 April 21 23:24 BST (UK)  »
Doing a family tree for a friend and found that an ancestor Gideon Roberts born Trowbridge (1856-1929), had a trial on the 13 Nov 1880 for manslaughter and was acquitted. He was held in Winchester prison before the trial. I have googled but have not found any newspaper reports on the trial or proceedings. Would welcome any help in finding any information.

Monmouthshire / Gilbert Family 1891 census
« on: Wednesday 03 March 21 16:06 GMT (UK)  »
On the 1891 census (Source Citation: Class: RG12; Piece: 4355; Folio: 107; Page: 32;) I have the Gilbert Family:

Household Members:   
Name   Age
Richard Gilbert   40 Born Tredegar  (Husband)
Margaret Gilbert   47 Born Tredegar  (wife)
Annie Collins   24 Born Tredegar  (daughter)
Michael Collins   23 born Tredegar  (son-in-law)
Bridget Kelly   37 Visitor
Edward Kelly   15 Visitor
John Kelly            9  Visitor

I have not been able to locate:
1. a marriage for Richard & Margaret
2. a birth for Annie,
3. a marriage for Annie and Michael, or
4. any previous or future census/BMD information on any of the Gilbert or Collins family named.

Bridget Kelly (MN Broderick) went on the marry a Richard Gilbert but I am not absolutely sure that it is the Richard Gilbert named in the 1891 census (though it probably is but would like some earlier or later census information to help conformation).

Would welcome any help.


Glamorganshire / Catherine May Tilley
« on: Sunday 24 January 21 18:02 GMT (UK)  »
I have a Catherine May Tilley born 30 Jan 1908 (from 1939 register) and have confirmed from GRO birth registration (1908 May Qtr Pontypridd 11a 634) that her mother was a Wallace.

Have found a marriage for a John Tilley to a Maggie Wallace in Pontypridd in 1902.

Have also found births for a William Isaac Tilley (1903) and a Leonard Gustavus Tilley (906).

However I have not been able to find any details of either John Tilley or Maggie Wallace (not able to locate the 1911 census).

Before purchasing a marriage cert. thought I would try Rootschat for help


Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Looking for Surname
« on: Friday 08 January 21 15:49 GMT (UK)  »
I have a book that was presented to a Miss ?? in 1879.  I can read that it was presented to a Miss ?? by Miss Jarman for general good conduct at Montague Villa's Salisbury in 1879.

I know that Miss Jarman ran a school at Salisbury so don't require any info about that, but I just can't make out the girls surname.


The Common Room / Two registrations for one death
« on: Monday 28 September 20 12:35 BST (UK)  »
Alice Baker married Clarence Carr Houldsworth in 1933 in Manningham West Yorks. In 1972 she married Richard Patrick Gleeson in Claro, West Yorks.  I assume she had divorced Clarence because he died 1993.

When Alice died in 2004, there were two death registrations identical apart from the surname - one as Gleeson and one as Houldsworth. Not sure why???

Alice Gleeson age 91 born 5 Nov 1912
Death registered Mar 2004 Leeds RD
Register Number: G24C
District and Subdistrict: 092/1G
Entry Number: 78

Alice Houldsworth age 91 born 5 Nov 1912
Death registered Mar 2004 Leeds RD
Register Number: G24C
District and Subdistrict: 092/1G
Entry Number: 78


Canada / Margaret Catherine McRae, March 1927, Victoria BC
« on: Thursday 13 August 20 14:31 BST (UK)  »
I have a snippet from a BC newspaper report about the trial of Margaret Catherine McRae accused of murdering her husband Albert F McRae. The snippet says that she was convicted of manslaughter. Unable to read the whole piece but I wonder if anyone in the BC area is able to see what sort of sentence she got and why she was only convicted on manslaughter.  She had actually shot her husband dead in front of a policeman who had escorted him to the family home to retrieve his belongings before leaving her.
