Could someone please find my great grandmother Edith Annie Lawrence born 1895 in Gateshead, Co. Durham? I believe she may be the Edith Laurence born 1896 in Durham, living in West Ham.

Kind regards,
Chris

Hi Frenchy
1911 using free list, has an Ada 21yrs in West Ham, Essex.
The only person listed in household with Edith.
Putting in birth place of Durham/Stockton/Stock on Tees nothing comes up for Ada or Edith as Laurence.

Hi,

Have you Edith's marriage and birth certificate? I could'nt find her in 1901 with the given details. 1911 could possibly be her, as when entering Durham as place of birth the one you found came up.

Edith Laurence is aged 15, born Durham. And a servant to Dan Crompton (aged 40 and born Castlethorpe, Bucks) and family.

Living at 84 Church street, West Ham.

================================================

Annie Amelia Lawrence b.1865. b.Marlow, Buckinghamshire. (2nd wife I guess)

Married less than a year.

Lawrence children.
Rosina 13.
Lily 12.
Thomas 9.
Daisy 8.

All born Hoxton.

Charles Tavey 15. Stepson. Occ. Assistant pawnbroker.
Harriett Tavey 7. Stepdaughter.

Both born Bermondsey.

All living at 22, Sturt Street, Shoreditch.

Marriage.

Edward Allchen Lawrence. Occ.Coppersmith.
Age: 37
abt 1868
Spouse-Harriett Tovey
Spouse Age: 34
Marriage
Date - 8 Oct 1905
Parish: St John the Baptist, Hoxton
County: London

Spouse Father - William Murphy. Occ. Labourer.


Address at time of marriage - 22, Sturt St. for Edward Lawrence & 16, Sturt Street, for Harriett(Annie Amelia). Both widowed at time of marriage.


So there was a mistake made for years of marriage in 1911 census.

Many thanks to all of you. That must be my great grandmother especially since she was the only Edith Lawrence (and variants) born around that year in Durham. I have her BMD certificates.

Harriett appears to have died 1909 in Shoreditch and Edward remarries Annie Amelia Cousins nee Morgan the next year.

I've been having trouble tracking Edith's older siblings Henry Robert Lawrence born 1891 and Hannah Mary Lawrence born 1892 both in Barrow-in-Furness, Lancashire. Could you find them in the 1911 census please?

Kind regards
Chris

Thanks for looking, Steve. Could you give me the details for Hannah Laurance born 1893 in Hoxton, living in Bethnal Green please? I believe she may be using the same birthplace as her siblings. This wouldn't be the first time this has happened.

Thanks again, Steve. Now I have a new lead for Henry which has produced a possible marriage and descendants to contact. They're both very possible especially since neither of their births were registered in the correct area.

Kind regards
Chris
