Lancashire Lookup Requests / Re: 1911 census Lancashire
« on: Sunday 04 October 09 14:05 BST (UK)  »
Only found out about birth name being Behn when going thru papers after his death when found the deedpoll which set about me trying to find out as much as possible, I have traced the Behn family back to 1825.

Just some gaps that I am now looking into 1911 census being one as to where they were living and with whom.

Harry Behn so I was told went to school in France/Belgium have nothing in writing to prove this, only that he was fluent in french, just thought it strange that a son of a sugar merchant should be sent abroad.

Thomas Leslie was asked about the family but said he and his brother were not close, only that his mother had a hard life with John Frederick Behn, who was a widower he had 8 child from a previous marriage

thanks for your help

There was an Anna Marie Skerratt as a witness to Rachel's wedding in1900. Rachel was born in 1871 in Hanley Staffs

Therefore it is a coincidence

Hi
Thomas Leslie was born 1906 West Derby district, lived on Liverpool Rd, Great Crosby, so don't think its the same

Yes Shaun that the family, any ideas why they aren't on 1911 census, I looked for them all separately as I knew that Rachael divorced John Frederick Behn. Also looked at Percy Crompton Shawcross but not in that household for the census.

Harry Behn was supposed to have been educated in France/Belguim so I suppose he could have been at school. But can't find younger brother  Thomas Leslie, who was lately known as Leslie Thomas Shawcross as he changed his name by deed poll in 1925.

I am having problems finding any of my family on 1911 census, they are present on 1901 but I find it strange that not one of them are recorded on1911, have searched by name and address, without success and apparently there is no damage to the lancashire part of the census.

Any views would be appreciated
