Census Lookups Please
« on: Wednesday 29 September 10 20:49 BST (UK) »
Hi

I have been trying to find my Great Great Grandma on the 1881 and 1891 census and so far it is proving impossible.

I have her sons birth certificate (my great grandad) and this shows him born in Liverpool (West Derby) on 14 January 1896 to James Jackson (a Coal Carter) and Catherine Jackson nee Williams.

I then managed to find them on the 1911 census and the 1901 census living on Blucher Street in Liverpool. I then got a copy of their marriage certificate showing Catherine Williams marrying James Jackson on 25 March 1894 in Liverpool. Her father is shown as John Williams and his profession is listed as Brick Maker. Catherine is listed as living on Trowbridge Street, Liverpool at the time of marriage.

The marriage certificate shows James Jackson her husband living at Blake Street Liverpool at the time of marriage.

I then worked out that Catherine Williams must have been born around 1873 and so requested a search from GRO for a birth certificate from 1872 to 1874 with a father of John Williams.

I have now received a certificate and this shows a Catherine Williams born 26 August 1873 at 11 Blake Street Liverpool to a father John Williams ( a Painter) and a mother Jane Williams nee Hughes.

I have tried looking for Catherine Williams in 1881 and 1891 but am having no luck at all.

Please can anyone help with either a census look up or any other tips/advice?

Thank you in advance

Jemma  :)

Actually thinking about it as I posted,  If the Catherine at the convent is the right one then it would fit nicely together.  It would be great to have them all in the same household as confirmation.

Perhaps someone else will find something :)

Hi Teaurn

Thanks for looking for me, i did look at that one but had previously discounted it due to her not being there and there being another child born in 1873....

Its certainly a tough one.

I have managed to find a John and Jane Williams with a father in law living with them called Richard Hughes in 1891  Source Citation:  Class: RG12; Piece: 2913; Folio 129; Page 18; GSU roll: 6098023.

I found a John Williams and Jane Hughes marriage certificate for the year before Catherine was born (just a guess its them really) and the father of Jane was Richard Hughes a Boot Maker so this cert fits with this census but no sign of Catherine.


Thanks for looking for me x

Also the Richard Hughes the Bootmaker (Jane Williams nee Hughes dad) lives at 11 Blake Street in 1881 and 1871. The birth certificate i have for Catherine shows she was born at 11 Blake Street in 1873 so i think im on the right track but there is just no sign of Catherine and her parents at Blake Street

Source Citation:  Class: RG10; Piece: 3781; Folio: 109; Page: 4; GSU roll: 841892.
