    Thomas Kemp - mariner death?

    I thought Tom was baptised 14 Feb 1830 and parents married March 1829? Is there a special place for finding deaths at sea? It seems her second husband who was listed by one son as a Master Mariner (don't know if he was exaggerating) died 1851 although he had a local burial record, so possibly...

    Thomas Kemp - mariner death?

    A part of my tree that I've got a little stuck on - Tom Kemp b1829/30 - (baptised 14th Feb 1830) Ramsgate, Kent. Parents Thomas Kemp (mariner) and Elizabeth (nee Russell). When I was looking into young Tom on the census, right from the 1841 census he's living with his paternal Aunt Elizabeth...

    Why would a Matron register a birth 3 months later?

    I have been digging a bit further and found the parents living together with the child in question in the 1939 - the father is listed as a widow, the mother has a totally different surname (her real one) to the one given on the birth cert and is listed as married (not to the father). There is...

    Why would a Matron register a birth 3 months later?

    I have received a birth cert for someone I'm looking into, and was surprised that the birth was in December, but the registration didn't occur until three months later and was by a Matron from the hospital the baby was born in. Was it common for a Matron to do this - if so in what situation...

    Byrne family in South Africa

    Sharls, any information would be helpful, thank you! I've not had time to keep digging on it so would be nice to hear what happened to them all as the news over here was 'never heard from again', but how true that was I don't know!

    Ronald Prior

    Oh thanks, that's great. I might order the marriage cert before maybe the death cert. It looks like Ylia got remarried in the 60's but she was born 1923 so is the right age range. Many thanks!

    Ronald Prior

    Hi, am looking at my mother-in-law's family. In the 1939 reg I've found her family household with her father and grandparents and her fathers siblings appears to include a Ronald Prior born 13th (I think) May 1921 and as the parents were both Prior in surname, I did indeed find a Ronald Prior...

    Byrne family in South Africa

    Thank you for that but still no luck. I find it hard to think how they could have all disappeared. Also the daughter that married Cyril Louis Pfuhl - I wonder if they'd have kept that surname or if it would have been changed?

    Byrne family in South Africa

    My family - The Kemp's had told me that a Gerald had gone to South Africa and had never been heard from again! Naturally I was fascinated but soon realised it was actually that my relation Eliza Kemp (b 1860 Ramsgate, Kent) who had married Gerald James Byrne (b approx. 1853 in Liverpool...

    KAY - Charles

    Unfortunately I've got very little information on Charles, I think from what I could tell Edith was living in Monmouthshire in the 1911 census, they married in Cardiff in 1900 and both the children were listed as being born in Llandaff. Edith was born in Gloucestershire and I think...

    KAY - Charles

    Am trying to trace a Charles Kay who was married to an Edith Ann Wyman (born approx. 1869). They married in 1900 in Cardiff and had two sons Harry and Charles. In the 1911 Census Edith is listed as 'husband away' so not sure if he's gone for good or just off visiting somewhere. Any info on him...

    K R Kemp

    I am trying to help someone find their birth mother - they thought my aunt may have been the right lady, but I don't think it adds up. What they have is information from an immigration document from England to Canada - the child went with both parents but the mother left and was never heard from...
