    Ethel LOCKWOOD and Florence & Thomas OLIVER

    Ethel May Denton born 10.12.1891 died in Colchester in 1972 Q2, does that fit with your family? (May and Mary often interchanged) It seems her birth was registered Jan 1892,(you're allowed 6 wks to register, that can put it into the next year - perhaps that's your problem?) m.m.n. Ray and she...

    Burial for Alice (Bull) Lyons

    Can't really help with this but if you know the date of death local newspapers often used to carry funeral details so it may be worth going to the library in Derby and looking through the death announcements. Elaine PS, it seems from Ancestry that she died Q4 1974, not 1975, does that make any...

    St Nicholas Parish Church Brighton

    The three extra births are on Ancestry, in the data set "London England Church of England Births and Baptisms 1813 - 1916" which has images of the actual registers. I was trying to fill the gaps in the family so just searched for the surname with parents Francis and Eliza then checked on the...

    St Nicholas Parish Church Brighton

    I seem to be going round in circles looking at this and I'm afraid I am no further on! I agree there is a clash of birthdates for Eliza & Edward, both born 1808. In fact in 1851 Eliza Newby is 39 and in 1871 she is 62 so was born any time around 1809 - 1812. I wonder whether she could be the...

    St Nicholas Parish Church Brighton

    I can't answer you question but I have looked at the censuses, baptisms etc and can see your problem. One thing I can suggest is to get the "letters of administration with will annexed" for Francis Thompson, with any luck it will mention his son Albert with enough detail for you to know whether...

    John Hegarty

    From your user name & location I have worked back and I think your grandparents must be John Hegarty and Catherine McGurk who married in Consett in 1912. In the 1939 register John gives his birth as 5 Sept 1870 and in the 1911 census he is a Blast Furnace labourer lodging in Consett. Born in...

    Mary Margaret Davies

    I seem to have the wrong family in 1901 as there is no brother, but it is a Mary M Davies, born Cardiff 1898, mother Margaret, living in Cardiff :- 63 Bridge street, St John parish, Cardiff Margaret Davies, Head, Widow, 24, Manageress Publican, Cardiff, Glamorgan, Mary M Davies, Daughter...

    Mary Margaret Davies

    No, had a good look but can't find her. I see her mother was a 24yr old widow in 1901, perhaps she remarried and Mary took her new name? Elaine
