    William CONNOR Birth 1870

    Hi Steve, Thanks for looking these up. So many different maiden names and as Dave has already mentioned none seem to line up with the St Sepulchre, Holborn clan that I am assuming is the most likely family. Julian :)

    William CONNOR Birth 1870

    Hi Ellie, Thanks for reply - I agree with you on this one, as William Connor Senior died some when between 1871 and 1881 and this entry is the only one that comes close to his birth date of 1827 mentioned on the 1871 Census. Not quite sure why he was in Greenwich when the rest of the family...

    William CONNOR Birth 1870

Still not sure if this link will result in a Fathers name of 'William' How did you establish the mothers name was BROWN ? I have been...

    William CONNOR Birth 1870

    Hi, I'm really stuck trying to find the origins of my wife's Great Grandfather, William CONNOR (AKA CONNER) - any help would be most appreciated. I'll try to brief with the facts that I have. All the records I have seen point to a birth in London, Middlesex between June 1869 and April 1871 of...

    MARSHALL/GOULD/BLACKMAN Portsmouth

    Thanks for the warm welcomes... I will try to reply to some of the comments on this thread. Lee - The Blackmanfamily.org link to Ada that you provided, was from information I provided to the site. Unfortunately there has not been any subsequent follow up from this. Dave - You are quite right...

    MARSHALL/GOULD/BLACKMAN Portsmouth

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone has any information on the MARSHALL family living in Portsmouth, Hampshire, England from 1877 onwards? I have found that Jane PASSINGHAM married John BLACKMAN in 1873 at Portsea. It would appear that the couple had the following children:-...
