    I'd like raise people's awareness of a MAPPING TOOL that's hosted by the Nottingham City Council and which is an excellent resource for genealogists and other historians of the area. Nottingham Insight Mapping (http://info.nottinghamcity.gov.uk/insightmapping/) is Nottingham City Council’s...

    family puzzle

    I gave the reference for the 1901 census Alison. If you look in there, Sarah is recorded as "S. Ellen Leach". In other words, she preferred her middle name to her forename.

    family puzzle

    Alison, here's an interesting explanation for you. I'm sure you'll be able to shoot it down in flames but it makes sense from what you've posted so far. I believe Albert Henry Leach *did* marry Sarah Ellen Leach. Hence, all those details that your sister and the professional genealogist...

    family puzzle

    Good puzzle. Everything does seem to fit with the Choules surname rather than Smart. I did some quick searches and accounted for 9 children. The 1911 census said there were originally 10 although one had died by then. Notice that several of the children and Sarah herself often preferred their...

    family puzzle

    Where's the evidence for the 'Smart' name Alison? I've checked a couple of times and everything presented here seems to be for Leach-Choules. I know you've probably done heaps of research but I wondered how you knew these two surnames both relate to your family.
