Re: Can you date this photo please?

The dress style is definitely Edwardian and Edward the Seventh reigned from 1901-1910, though the styles might have exceeded 1910 a little.

Goddard 1861 census

I would appreciate it if forum users could do a bit of deciphering for me please. On the 1861 census I have John Goddard, born in Monk's Kirby, but I cannot decipher the word in front of this. Likewise, his address appears to be what looks like Old Chequers Hotel. I am somewhat confused, as I have r...

Re: Charles Jeffery - brick wall

You have a lot of information, but missing a vital record and this is a difficult one. Record keeping before the birth, marriage and death certificates we know today came into being, was a bit hit and miss. Records were often destroyed due to fire and flood, but Bishop's Transcript's, which would ha...

Re: USA

Sincere thanks for all the replies, you are an amazing group of people. Stoney Stanton is definitely the correct place and there is obviously a connection between the Walker and White families, something I need to look at. Another signature on a postcard I have puzzled over and now know it was Cora....

Re: USA

Hello VALLO9, thank you so much for your very in depth replies. You made me look at the Walker tree, something I have not done for a long time and yes, Christopher Walker did have a brother called William and you certainly have the correct family. It was always assumed that Christopher Walker had ju...

I am hoping that a member of the forum might be able to shine a light on two young women, presumably sisters. They were called Anna and Emma White and on correspondence to a Len Walker of Leicestershire, called themselves his cousin. Len's full name was Nathaniel Robert Lane Walker and around 1910 h...

Re: Erroneuous data on censuses

On the 1901 census taken at King Edward St. Great Grimsby I came across two records, which I am sure were transposed by the ennumerator. It caught my attention, as it listed a man whose surname was my maiden surname. This was William Jesney and his place of birth given as Longton, Staffordshire. Nex...

Re: Weston Family

I am not sure if this will be of any help to you, but years ago I had a problem finding a couple who also lived in Coventry. I can't recall which census it was, but I could not find them. I then systematically searched the whole of the census records for Coventry for that year and finally found them...
