    William STREET & Minnie HILL

    Unfortunately William was a widower in 1911 and so correctly put a line through the marriage space, unlike some I've seen do. The 1891 census has Minnie with William as H&W, and his Mother in the household so have taken this Minnie to have become his wife. Maybe it will just be one of those that...

    William STREET & Minnie HILL

    William is a great-great uncle b.1859 Clerkenwell. Have been able to trace him through to 1911. In 1891 census he is married to Minnie (she was a Domestic servant in the household of William & his mother Jane in 1881). I have been unable to locate their marriage. Their first child was born 1884...

    surname Durrant first name Durrant ?

    Rec'd the certificate and thankfully the parents are Edward & Ann and can only be Charles Parker. Under the Col. Name, if any they had just put Durrant. Going through the records I have for the four boys lends to the probability that Edward and George were twins born in 1838. Edward was baptized...

    surname Durrant first name Durrant ?

    Hi Gibbo Thanks for that. Yes the census is the one I have. Charles was one of four sons born to Edward & Ann all with the middle name of Parker - a tradition based on that being the surname of the father of the original Thomas Parker DURRANT b.1763 a bastard child of the then unmarried Frances...

    surname Durrant first name Durrant ?

    While sorting out my various Parker DURRANT children Registered/born in Brighton to Edward Parker DURRANT & Ann Durrant between 1835 & 1840 I came across a birth record with surname and first name Durrant.

    John DOWSETT - Is he a real grandson.

    Thanks for that. Yes anything is possible. My ancestor John HALES created the change to DOWSETT between 1841 & 1851 census. The name Dowset(t) appears for the first time when his son Thomas(born)HALES, was christened Thomas Dowset HALES in 1846 in Kilsby. By the 1851 census the family are...

    John DOWSETT - Is he a real grandson.

    Trying to sort change of name for an ancestor. Found a possible connection in an 1881 census. Head of household Richard HALES a.66 has with him a John DOWSETT a.15 recorded as 'Grandson' (neither of them are my ancestor). My query is could John actually be Richard's grand nephew:) but was called...

    No connection that I know of Leefer. I've come to the conclusion I will have to go over all that I have & look for matching dates. I guess this is another one where if they had only written who she was.:rolleyes:

    Mystery young woman

    Thanks Gibbo & Gaelywn I think I've narrowed her down. Possibly one of my Great Aunt Streets. Birth dates 1879 & 1880, though I still don't know why they would be having a photo taken in Belfast. The Streets and connecting ancestors only ever appear in England.

    Many thanks Dave. That 1851 Cen' has a tie in with Ann Dowsett's family who were in Kilsby, Northamptonshire for the 1851 Census though Kilsby was shown with the county Warwickshire. Ann's father was a also a Butcher. Had a look at a map and Kilsby is abt. 20 kms north of Northampton. Long shot...

They married in 1864 in Bethnal Green. They were both 23 and he was a Pork Butcher as was his father also William Turnor a...
