James Family - Mitcham
« on: Sunday 11 November 12 17:07 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to trace any photographs or information relating to John and Minnie James who lived at 8 Seaton Road, Mitcham (definitely there in 1911).  They had 23 children - their youngest daughter Ellen was my granny and I would love to find out more information about her brothers and sisters.

Further to my previous post, I have now found out that Minnie and John James lived at Queens Road, Mitcham in the 1920s - so not sure if this will jog anyone's memories.

Hi All

Just come back to the site after a break.

Still looking for help on this one - would be good to hear from you if you have any information.  We have since found our that John James's parents were Joseph and Louisa James.

Best wishes

Waynus James

How sure are you about Johns Parents?

Marriage;
25 March 1878, Dorking, St Paul
John JAMES, 20, Bachelor, Hawker, Father JOHN** James, Hawker
Mignonette AGNES, 17, Spinster, Father Samuel CALLA , Hawker
(Her Fathers surname is hard to read ans is transcribed as Calla)

FreeBMD March 1878 Marriage Reg has her as Mignionetta AYRES
(image on Parish Entry could be Ayres)

1881 in West Horsley, Surrey we have;
John James, 20, Hawker, born Aldershot, Surrey
Minnie James, 20, Hawkers Wife, born Brighton, Sussex
Louisa J. James, 1, Daug, born Leatherhead,Sussex

John is with his Parents JOHN/LOUISA, nee Ayres also in 1891 Census, down as Married.

Also on 1911 Census they have a lot less than 23 Children born to them?

At the moment I'm at 1891 which isn't that far back but I remember my dad talking about a minnie james , the ayres , and doe and draper family oh and the smiths !! Help rebecca
