George White
« on: Sunday 16 August 20 13:05 BST (UK) »
I'm searching for any details of the parents and siblings of George White. Born Warwickshire c1838. Died Caernarvon 1906 I have his family history from the 1850's but am unable to find any exact details of his family before then  His marriage to Elizabeth Anne Summer (Born in 1839 died Caernarvon 1896) in Caernarvon names his father as a Francis White and his occupation as soldier. Elizabeth Summers was born in either the U S A or Halifax  Nova Scotia, and her father is also recorded on the marriage certificate as  a soldier.  Could the White family have been in North America during George's childhood?

George White   24 born Aston Common, Wiltshire
Elizabeth White   23
Priscilla White   3
James White   43 born Ireland
Johanna White   45

Possible?

Cant find any of the Family though 1841.

Perhaps interesting that the abode for Jane and Mary's baptisms is Steeple Ashton, Francis' baptism has Hinton, and George's has Steeple Ashton Common.

Good point Dundee.

Opening post says George died 1906 Carnarvon but freebmd has no death reg in 1906 for a George White in Wales matching his birthyear

There are 2 in Carnarvon - both in 1902.  The 70yr old appears to be on the 1901 and was b Carnarvon

Apologies for putting George's date of death as 1906 when it should have been 1902 I have all his details in the censuses of 1861 onwards and can trace directly his family once in Wales. Its his birth place and family in England that has not been traceable up to now.

Are you sure you have the right death?

The 1902 Carnarvon one was aged 70 and as I said in my reply - 1901 entry shows him b Carnarvon.  His occupation does not link to your George’s

The Conway entry was George William White

Have you looked at the 1901 entry living in Glamorgan?

I have a definite burial record of George White buried in Llanbeblig Cemetery Caernarfon in 1902. His wife Elizabeth pre deceased him. I can trace him in Caernarfon through his descendants my husband being his 2 times great garand son.  I have no idea who the George W White in Llandudno is although Pricilla my George White's daughter did move to Llandudno to keep a boarding house, and her brother also lived with her .
George White appears to have a multitude of birth years and birth locations which is why I am confused.
