COMPLETED - Help with a missing family in 1881
« on: Saturday 10 November 12 00:28 GMT (UK) »
Hello All,

I've been looking at my first wife's family (Young) and have hit a bit of a snag. Thomas Henry Young married Mary Hannah Jenkins in 1902 at Darlington Register Office (I don't have the cert.)

The 1911 census shows Mary Hannah as being born Stockton on Tees c1878, and living with them was her widowed father David Jenkins a retired furnaceman born c1846 at Dowlas? Glamorganshire, Wales.

This family appear to be missing in the 1881 census on Familysearch and I would like your help, because there is no birth registration for Mary Hannah in that time frame.

I don't want to go further back into her family at the moment.

Regards,
Colin

Hello,

here they are on Family Search

Free BMD has births in Middlesbrough district for Mary Hannah - 1876 and Mary Ann -1878
As Mary is 5 in 1881 - the birth is probably the first one.

regards

Many thanks Heywood. The new Familysearch has me baffled but I suppose it is more commercialised now. We were spoiled in the past with their free records, and although they are still available they are harder to find without being prompted to go through FindMyPast.

Colin
