Thank you so much.

I have one more if it isn't cheeky to ask?

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ym9SpPQuq0kr-CkXfDMSfVTcPG8adZXJ/view?usp=sharing

I think it says (London) National British subject? it's from an 1891 census. If correct, does anyone know why it would say this?

It's confusing me and I can't seem to get any further back than his father's name (John Slater) that I got from a marriage certificate and certainly can't find any more information on him (Richard Slater)

Thanks
I think it would be Naturalised British Subject. Maybe his parents were of some other nationality.

Could this be the 1871? Indexed as Slatter RG10; Piece: 422; Folio: 17; Page: 27
Richard Statter   47 b St Georges Middlesex
Caroline Statter   43 b Sheffield
Louisa Statter   19
Blanche Statter   12
Edward Statter   9
Ada Statter   7
Helen Statter   1

Crossed out as ages wrong. Marriage in 1888 Richard was 43, Caroline 23.

OR maybe this Richard Slater RG10; Piece: 1196; Folio: 80; Page: 18
Undergoing medical treatment in hospital Royal Victoria Hospital Netley Hampshire
Unmarried, age 29, Private 1st batt 60th regiment born Islington, London

Maybe one of these births?

Thanks for the information. I have a death of 24th November 1892 aged 49 in Sheffield general cemetery. I have ordered a death certificate from gro to see if that gives me any additional information, although it probably won't.

I guess the only way I would know if they are the correct births is to order a birth certificate and see if the father's name is John?

I have to admit I am not so good at this.


Thanks for your help.

Let us know the details on the death certificate when you get it.

Finding a baptism would be a good way forward, if Richard's father was from abroad it may have been in the church of his nationality. John is a name that can have been anglicised from many originals; Slater could be an anglicisation as well.

Hello,

I have received the death certification and it is on the link below.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1F2TXv26W4ak3GDCJfceI3vC73Z808wbk/view?usp=sharing

I believe the death is consumption which seems to be Tuberculosis when I searched.

Thanks

Yes, consumption was used when referring to TB.
