Completed Thanks! Help with reading birth reg record
« on: Monday 16 March 09 23:40 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone...

Made a possible great discovery today...hoping someone might help me confirm this...
These are two entries below, one of of a George Barnett and one of a James Barnett

In Anc***ry, the record for George is illegible, but the record for James gives District as Edmonton, Vol: 3 Pg 157

On the 1851 census, HO107; Piece: 1702; Folio: 462; Page: 1, I have George & James as 7 years old, and listed as nephews., so I'm trying to confirm that they were twins. Can anyone confirm the entry for George, and if not, how do I go about ordering his birth cert?

Thanks :)

Hi

The GRO birth entry looks like Cuckfield to me which was in Sussex

The 1851 entry shows James & George b Tottenham

Thanks Carol, but if you look between the two, there is an entry that has been added...just above the Cuckfield entry, and in quite faint writing?

I can't open the image for George - only for James.  Which quarter of which year is the birth and I'll magnify it on screen from the GRO index

 ;D I had to enlarge it, and peer at it...I was so excited...have been on this family trail for a while...the mother and father weren't living together either...have found the father working (I presume live -in) as a coachman...have no idea where the mother is.

Funny thing is, James was born December 1843 (and therefore possibly JamesGeorge even!), and the parents got married in 1844...:)

I had thought the reference as well could be lll (ie, Vol 3) and the entry no. 161 ?


Your post just came in...it JAN/FEB/MAR of 1844, and it's image no. 63 of 404 (hope that makes sense)

Hi

Definitely Edmonton 111 161 but James was p 157.  If they were twins - I would have expected them to share the same page number

yes, I would have too, but that he was obviously added in...so perhaps some error occurred or something.

Any ideas how I could order the birth cert of George?  Would I tek the risk and put those ref no.s?

I have James' cert, and nothing on it suggests he was a twin...BUT i have these two boys on the 1851 census...

The cert you have for James - is it the Page 157 one?

If so - you could apply for the one for George but put a condition on it that you only want it if parents were >>>>>>>> and date of birth was (same as James)

If it's the wrong parents - the GRO will only charge a 3 search fee
