I didn't mean a opening a new search, although that does sometimes work.
FindMyPast's opening page allows one to enter a name etc. and only requires one to sign in when one tries to open a particular result. Ancestry used to do the same but no longer appears to do so. I have to admit it is some time since I had to resort to trying this trick, I don't use Ancestry much these days.

Rather than type in the first name and surname search, I tend to type in the "What Else" search and add speech marks such as "James Slater" and I tend to get more relevant results. Maybe it is just me, but I find that can help.

It is annoying when you type in the surname search and get verbs.
Researching:

LONDON, Coombs, Roberts, Auber, Helsdon, Fradine, Morin, Goodacre
DORSET Coombs, Munday
NORFOLK Helsdon, Riches, Harbord, Budery
KENT Roberts, Goodacre
SUSSEX Walder, Boniface, Dinnage, Standen, Lee, Botten, Wickham, Jupp
SUFFOLK Titshall, Frost, Fairweather, Mayhew, Archer, Eade, Scarfe
DURHAM Stewart, Musgrave, Wilson, Forster
SCOTLAND Stewart in Selkirk
USA Musgrave, Saix
ESSEX Cornwell, Stock, Quilter, Lawrence, Whale, Clift
OXON Edgington, Smith, Inkpen, Snell, Batten, Brain

The 1871 family are to be found at RG 10 / 3236 / 2/ 24, at Hyde Pastures, Watling Street Road.

In 1881 they are at RG 11 / 3132 / 81 / 4, but Frederick isn't with them

Watling Street Road



Well the cert I sent for is NOT my Frederick.. so back to it.. 

He does seem to have become Alfred
