    Edwin JAMES

    The death of an Edwin Charles James, age 59, registered in Cardiff, June Q 1919. I realise age a bit out and inconsistent with Sarah's declared widowhood, but possible cover for separation?

    Staveley nee webster

    Sorry, got my dates wrong! 4 births registered in name of Mary Ann Webster in Sheffield between 1870 - 1875, but of course her birth may have been registered in an adjacent district. Without a firm fact such as her father's name, anything else is pure speculation.

    Staveley nee webster

    7 births were registered in the name of Mary Ann Webster in Sheffield between 1860-1864. If you have a copy of her marriage certificate, this should give the name and occupation of her father which could be heldful in tracing her on the 1871 census, from which it might be possible to deduce her...

    Can’t find....

    I looked at the John Parsons/ Jane Tonkin marriage 1815 but thought it strange that the first known child was not born until 1820 followed by other children at regular intervals. Total speculation! A John and Jane Parsons had children Elizabeth, 1815, John 1817, and Jane 1819, at Sancreed...
