Hi Knellie,
Now I understand what you did. You checked the same time frame as I would have done given Ellen's pregnancy and the date of William's birth. This is turning out to be a much greater puzzle than I anticipated.
I am glad that you seem to be enjoying the experience
of searching for criminal records. I feel rather guilty about asking someone to do all this work.
It might be fun to find a black sheep of your own  ;D.
I have one, but he never got caught and lived out his life
in comfort, hiding on a Carribean island. It took me a couple of years to track him down, great fun.

Cheers,
Carmela

Hi Carmela

I live in Nottingham but have been too busy to be on Rootschat or go to the archives for quite a while. In the past I have looked up many queries for Rootschat members and solved many puzzles. I am mystified by your query and the fact that it has not been solved. I have read all of the replies but can you summarise names and dates and what you would like to know or find at Nottm archives. I am on annual leave on Friday so I may be able to go for an hour or two.

Hi Jane,
Thank you for the kind offer. Perhaps a fresh set of eyes
is just what we need. I'll send you a PM with details.

Carmela

Carmela,  I think the person you are looking for is my sister-in-laws family member.  As I was just doing some research for her and her background.  If you would care to reply back to me I could get more info from her.  As she has a birth certificate of this "Stanley" being born in Prison  at that time.
I know the families and where they lived, etc.

Sunshine,
I am in a state of shock :o :o :o. This is fantastic! Beyond my wildest dreams. I'll send you private message as soon as I recover from the shock.

Thank you, so much.

Of course, I'll let you know what happens. So many people have been involved in this that I could not leave you all in the dark.
Have sent Sunshine a PM. Await further developements.

Cheers,
Carmela
