Can anyone read this please
« on: Sunday 12 December 04 16:31 GMT (UK) »
This is aimed at Bob from Berlin ;) or anyone who might be able to suggest what this surname could be.
It is from the 1861 census,and Joseph(who was born in Germany) later changed it to HINES. I have never been able to find his marriage to Mary Ann,but that's cos I've been looking under HINES  ::)
I'm certain this is the correct family as both the children are the right names ages and places.

Would love any suggestions please,

Cheers

Carol

Hiya,

I split this out to get a better coverage - hope you don't mind.

Looks like HUBEN to me - but I'm rubbish at this!

All the best,
Pam

Thanks Pam- good idea to split it.
I'm rubbish too  ;D that's why I need some help !

Hoping someone with an idea of which German surnames could have fitted,in the early 1800's.

Well, it doesn't really look like Hines does it!!

It's a little fuzzy but I wonder of the tall letter in the middle isn't a 'h'? So we get Huh--s.  It could be -ne- or
-en- .  I wonder if the name sounded like Hines, which is why it got changed?

I agree- one for Bob. ;)

This is the worst image ever - written on blotting paper I think - but it looks like Hubner. But if he changed his name to Hines, perhaps it is Heinz - who knows ???
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.

I agree with Pam - it looks quite like Huben to me.

I'm not altogether convinced that the "H" in "Hubner" is a good match for the "H" of "Head".

How about Stubner?
