Give me the names and approx. dates and I'll check the passenger lists for you.

Will need a couple of days as I am really busy at the moment.

Sre thanks,

I tried this before without success.

My family members Hide and Treymann lived for generations in St.-Petersburg being British subject.

They left Russia in 1918 after a dead warning to Terioky leaving everything behind.

They stayed there till 1920 hoping for better times but then decided to leave for England.

They came by the Ariadne to Hull.

I regret very much that sofar no genealogical site play specific attention to British citizens in Russia.

You have to find information like in this case the Abbay/Abbey family, while in a certain period several thousands English people lived/ worked etc. in Russia.

I would be usefull in my opinion to bring as much as possible information about these English roots together so we can learn from the experiences of others.

Apologize for this heartfull cry

Elcas

This Russia connection is getting quite interesting.

An ancestor of mine Alice Middleton was born in Russia (probably St Petersburg) in 1824 (September 22). Her parents were William Middleton (born in Burton Pidsea in 1794) and Mary (born in Roos in 1792 approx).

Alice had a sister Jane Middleton who was also born in Russia - on February 24 1826. Unfortunately, she died shortly afterwards on June 10 1826. 

Alice Middleton married Thomas Mason at the parish church, Skekling cum Burstwick on April 5, 1845. Their daughter Emily was born at Burstwick in 1846, but in the 1851 census Emily Mason's place of birth was listed as Ridgemont, which is in Burstwick.

Thomas Mason's job was listed as farm bailiff in the 1861 census.

I am descended from Alice Middleton via Betsy Mason, Emily's sister. I was born in Hull in East Yorkshire.
