Thank you Sunflower :)

That certainly looks more promising.  Will try to find some census records for this family.  I did look before but could only find the family I mentioned before with father and son called John.  Might try to find vol. no. and page to send of for birth certificate.  Thank you once again.   Gail :)

Hello again ,

Found the above John Cross and now have birth certificate thank you everyone.   Now I need information if possible about the father. John Cross (surprise, surprise!)  He was born I think Beeston 1800/1801 Married Mary Thornton 6th Nov 1824  and died on 5th Feb 1863 in the Radford district.   If anyone has any information on the parish records about parents etc or anything else I would be grateful. I have found him on 1841 census they lived in Clement Place, Snenton and have found a will. In 1863 they lived in Holly Gardens Thorneywood Lane in Snenton .  Any help would be greatly appreciated  Gayla

Hi I live in Nottingham so just to let you know the closeness of some of the places you have mentioned.
Sneinton is just down the road from Gedling they are next to each other. Beeston is across town so work was around the Sneinton area as it is just out of the centre of the city. I noticed in the 1851 census John was the employer of 11 other people making gloves so he was doing well for those days.
You also mentioned Basford. This was a registration place for a large area of Nottingham and even today has a register office for marriages. I also saw on my search a John Cross born in Basford. He also married a Mary but I suppose that wasnt unusual in those days.

I also looked for Mary Thornton and this could be her
Mary Sarah Thornton born 14th April 1803 c at Parliament Street, formely
Hockley Church parents are George and Ann 
Even today if you walk to the bottom of Parliament street you are in Sneinton.

Hope this helps and good luck on your search
regards

Thank you both :)

Wonderful lot of information.  It gets very difficult when you live far away from the area of your research, once you have exhausted the census. This is really helpful.   Thank you Gayla
