Deaths Mar Qtr 1904

Assuming RD Chorlton I'd like a look up please for possible matches in 1901 allowing for variations of the surname.

Thanks,

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

Interesting. I'm trying to find the death of this Ann. They have been living together since the 1881 census but I'm not sure they actually married. I can't find a marriage that fits.

Nothing more apart from his occ.
 
Thanks Geoff.

It's the last of the Smiths. :)

We have looked before and it's a real puzzle because Thomas was born Ireland.

This is my Thomas in 1871 and then 1915 death in Paisley. The 1881 - 1901 census I'm not sure about.

That's the census Geoff and it says they are married.

Son Archibald was the informant so I don't understand why there is no mention of Ann on the death certificate. Archibald didn't know his father remarried and lived with Ann for over 20 years? Or he knew they lived together but knew they were not married? Or it's a different Thomas Blackley. The spelling of the name in the census with Ann is as it should be as if it was my Thomas. So why born Scotland when it's Ireland for sure?

Where is Thomas in 1911?

Where and when did Ann die?

How do I know Ann's maiden name is SMITH? :rolleyes:

Hmmm... discounts that then :rolleyes:
 
Yeah, that's one I had to purchase to see if it was the right marriage.

No sign of Thomas in England in 1911 so my guess is that he returned to Scotland when Ann died. So, if they didn't marry Ann's death could be under another name.

I'll keep returning to this hoping to find something because this is direct line on other side of Hamilton.

She could have gone to Scotland with him and died there before 1915 :rolleyes:

Ann's death would then be under SMITH if * another name :rolleyes:

Edit: * Not another name..
 
They lived in Lancashire for a long time I doubt they went together to live in Scotland.

There seems to be no other Iron moulder born Scotland to make it 2x Thomas.

I have no note in my tree re the source of the name SMITH. I would have changed it to Unknown after I received the copy of the 1875 marriage but haven't so I presume the name came from an on-line tree.
