Hi re. Sparrow family
Not sure how this got on my threads, I am not researching the Sparrow family. Anyway I have done a little digging and really needs a little more info. I presume you are looking for Alfred M A Sparrow who married Margaret Leybourne Parker in 1901 Gateshead and had ch: JOHN 1912, ALFRED 1914, EDWARD P 1921 AND WILLIAM 1924 all born Gateshead.
Can only find 1 Alfred Sparrow with a father GEORGE and Alfred appears on 1901 census as a servant (b @1879 in Pancras London) in Shoreditch with the Powell family. On 1881 census this Alfred is the son of GEORGE SPARROW b 1841 in Frome Somerset and his occupation is "French Polisher", and FANNY (nee BUTLER) b 1843 Tuxfold, Nottinghamshire. In 1881 George and Fanny were living in St Pancras with childrem, FANNY W 1866 (born Reading), ALBERT 1872 (born Islington), OLIVER 1874 (b St Pancras) and ALFRED b 1878 (born St. Pancras), George's sisters, LOUISA JANE and EMILY SPARROW are living with the family. GEORGE and FANNY were married St Pancras in 1864. They also had a son GEORGE THEODORE SPARROW b 1868 in Islington.
GEORGE SPARROW was the son of JAMES SPARROW b 1821 Frome Somerset and JANE ? b 1821 Frome, Somerset and in 1851 GEORGE and JANE were living in Frome with childred, GEORGE 1840, JAMES 1842, LOUISA 1846 AND ALFRED 1851.
Please let me know if you think this could be the family you are looking for
