Hello Ozzie Joan,

Thank you for finding out there birth information, I really appreciate it, I was wondering why Sidney Fisher wasn't on there. Or where could I find out his birth, I know he was born about 1879 because of what was on the Emigration Papers. Any Ideas would be great.

Again Thanks

Leanne

Hi Leanne,

This one is on http://rootsweb.freebmd.com:

Births Sep 1879
 
FISHER  Sydney Everest    Wandsworth  1d 725

In 1879 the registration district for London & Surrey was 1d, so I would think he is a likely one to check if you can afford the cost of the Certificate. The 1d 725 reference numbers are what you will need to get the Certificate.

I assume you have seen where the family was in 1881? It certainly confirms Sidney as being born 1879:

 John FISHER   Head   M   Male   32   Bury St Edmonds, Suffolk, England   Carman     
 Harriet R. FISHER   Wife   M   Female   35   Marylebone, Middlesex, England       
 Alice FISHER   Daur      Female   7   Sutton, Surrey, England   Scholar     
 George FISHER   Son      Male   5   Sutton, Surrey, England   Scholar     
 Sidney FISHER   Son      Male   2   Sutton, Surrey, England       
 Henry FISHER   Brother   U   Male   22   Bury, Suffolk, England   Carman     


~~~~~~~~
Source Information:
  Dwelling   12 William Road
  Census Place Sutton, Surrey, England
  Family History Library Film   1341178
  Public Records Office Reference   RG11
  Piece / Folio   0758 / 80
  Page Number   41

Hope it's helped.

Hello OzzieJoan,

Thanks for your help, I will check it out about the certificate. I knew about the 1881 Census, thats how I found about him, Just that I can't find his death either here in NSW, Australia, he just seems to have disappeared, but will check out the site you gave me.

Regards
Leanne

Hi,

As this query is over two years old your research will have moved on and you may already know the info. I am giving.

In our family we have a Miss. Sydney Everest Fisher born on 16th July 1879.  This was one of three girls in the family given the name Sydney, the others were a cousin Sydney Everest Fisher Clark and this Sydney's daughter - Sydney Murphy. 

Miss Sydney Everest Fisher spent her last years in Westbury on Trym near Bristol and died unmarried on Jan 18th 1967.

Her father was Hugh Dugan Fisher (9th Sept 1842-1891).  He was born in Ireland and lived in England although his parents emigrated to New York State in the USA.

I hope that you have found the Sydney Fisher you are looking for.
