Hi Jojo. If you can give me any help I would really appreciate it. My Gt. grandfather was John Hill born 1860 in Llangattock, Monmouthshire. He married Mary Pritchard in 1883 (born 1861/2 in Llangattock/Llanhowell). In the 1891 and 1901 censuses they are well documented with their 8 children, living in Llandough, Glamorgan. In the 1881 and previous censuses I'm led to believe by other sources that he seems to have disappeared! Obviously I cannot go further back without his parents' names, so am completely stuck. We did think we had him with a birthdate of 1852 but that appears to be wrong now. Anything you can come up with would be of great help. Many thanks Gilllisa

Sorry for the last aborted start. I'm a novice at this.

Am searching for my ggrandparents, Margaret & John Hammond, m:1864 in Donegal. Hope they might have shown up on that census in Donnegal. I have quite a bit on Margaret - but I have no birth or death date for John - only the marriage certificate. He indicated he was "widowed" when he married Margaret. His father's name was Andrew.

If John's age is listed on the census, it may give me a birth year

Hi Maralee.

I think this offer of the 1881 census is for England only.

The Irish census was destroyed.

I suggest you send for the marriage cert, it's the only way you will find out, for sure, who the parents are.
It costs about 10 quid through the GRO in Southport, you can order online.

You could get the marriage cert which would give fathers name.
Ref A/J 1883 Newport Monmouth, Mary Ann Pritchard ref 11a 330

In 1881 Mary is a serv at Penrose Farm Llangattock, and with parents in 1871 ref RG10 5340 83 10

HI
Found the record for John and Margaret on IGI. It gives John's birth as c1840 in Lacrum, Donegal and Margaret's as c1843 Lacrum - married 16Dec1864 Killymard, Donegal.

Searching for John Hammond

davelambert271

Thank you SO much for the info. I had looked on the FamilySearch & found the marriage record, but there was no birth date. When I looked for the IGI -
there it was! So many Hammond geneologists have been looking for so long!!

This is a fantastic site - & you do them proud!

Thank you.
