1901 Census Lookup - TWYMAN/GURR
« on: Thursday 19 April 07 12:45 BST (UK) »
I am looking for more information on a set of my GGrandparents.

My Grandfather is Frank Alfred TWYMAN b 24 Apr 1921 Thanet, I found his mothers maiden name to be GURR from the BMD index.

I then found a marriage between an Arthur TWYMAN and a May L GURR, Q4 1911 in Thanet. I know it isn't the best way to go about things like this but i am assuming (for now!) that these are his parents.

I'm pretty sure the whole family are from the Thanet area of Kent - so i just wondered if the 1891/1901 census brings up many possibilities? I think they were both born around 1886/1887.

They had 3 children that i know of: Arthur H (1913), Frank Alfred (1921), and Albert J (1925). These might provide some clue as far as names go!

Any help greaty appreciated  ;D

Going back to 1891 to find May Gurr with parents and siblings .... its good that her PoB was specific in 1901, as there are a couple of candidates in 1891 - but this looks good.

Thanks Newfy.

Thats the May Gurr I identified too (b.1887 Marshside), so I now feel like I'm definitely going in the correct direction  :)

Are there anymore siblings on the 1871 for either families? And if possible, could you do an earlier lookup on the fathers for me?

Thanks  ;D :-*

Spotted a problem - May GURR b. 1887 Blean was registered as May Victoria, I've now found her marriage in 1908 and it doesn't pair up with an Arthur Twyman.

The marriage definitely says May L - I may have to trawl through the BMD to find her birth and hope she was registered May L - although being married in 1911, she must be on the 1901 census at least.

Perhaps my mum was mistaken, and that side of the family weren't from Thanet...

you May have to get the marriage Cert to reveal her Father's name .... all Mays currently transcribed seem to be in London or Kent 1870 onwards ....

also she may have been a name-swapper - registered as XXX May Gurr, and then used May as her name ....

Will do.

Could anyone do a 1861 lookup on Robert T TWYMAN for me? B. Abt 1855 Margate.

Many Thanks  ;D
