GRO lookup (MMN at birth) help please
« on: Tuesday 10 July 18 15:47 BST (UK) »
If someone fancies a challenge could they see if they can use the GRO lookup facility to find the mother's maiden name for any or all of the three people listed below. The problem is the unusual surname and despite using the soundex's I have not been able to find it and unfortunately using a surname is compulsory

Births Dec 1838
Margaret LANDERS (I believe this is Margaret Landreth)
Chester le Street 24 23
 
Births Dec 1840
Cecilia Landreth
Chester le Street 24 32
 
Births Dec 1842   
James Thomas LANDRETH
Chester le Street 24 33


(I know there is a marriage in 1829 in Welbury, York between a Thomas Landreth and a Jane Byers but I think, at this stage, that that is a red herring and they are not the parents of these three people.

Wow that is amazing how did you do it so quick.

I usually have no problem using the GRO site to find the MMN but this time despite spending ages and trying all sorts of combinations I could not get anything

Thank you

Just entered the details you gave (surname, sex and year) - no problem at all.   ;D

Thank you. I can get them to come up now if I don't put the district name in. I was putting Chester Le Street but they have Chesterlestreet etc and that seems to make all the difference.

Thanks for the help that has worked wonders.  :)

(Think I have found the right Jane's birth now. Not Mole or Mold but Moll  :) )
