having trouble finding my great grandma Rose Florence Terrell & family
« on: Thursday 08 October 15 22:22 BST (UK) »
Hi I'm a bit stuck trying to find my great grandma Rose Florence Terrell's family.
I don't know her mum or dads names; and I don't know if she had any siblings.
Rose was born in 1894, married William George Springate and died in 1980.

I have a newspaper clipping with her and her husband running for Lewisham council labour party in 1928. But I would like to know a bit more about her.

I would be very grateful for any information about her.
Bland, Terrell

Is this her birth?

Rose Terrell
1894  Jan-Feb-Mar
St Olave Southwark
Volume:   1d  Page:   291

The certificate would give her parents' names.

I see the problem in 1901 she is with an aunt and uncle and in the next census is a servant!  They are quite old though to be an aunt or uncle and the other person is a nephew but 30. I'm afraid that it does look as if your only option is to get her birth certificate. Then we may be able to find the famly in 1891.

That could lead to this - right place of birth as stated in 1901. So it depends whether Jane is Rose's aunt or Great aunt.

I think Carne might be Cerne Abbas in Dorset.

An online tree gives Thomas's father as Israel. If so, this looks like his baptism. From Family Search   https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J76M-GQH

There are other Terrill/Terrell families there as well


Israel Terrill
Christening  :   17 Mar 1771
Cerne Abbas, Dorset, England
Father's name:   John Terrill
Mother's name:   Mary

I would have started with her marriage certificate to get her father's name, but I can't see on freeBMD any marriage of Rose Terrell and William Springate
