dovercourt but born Enfield
When I first started on my family tree I was told that the name Smith was the hardest to locate and follow but my great grandfather was easy as his name was Job.
Now years later I am looking at some of his children that I cannot find the going off.:(
They are William Smith b 1878 - m 1909 to Emma Eastwick - no children and then no sign of them.

Ellen Smith b 1887 - 1891 and 1901 census and then nothing.

Harry Smith b 1880 - 1881 and 1891 census and then nothing.

All 3 have the single forename which makes it impossible to sure of anything :mad: - Still I keep coming back for more(must be mad :2fun:)

Its a lot easier if they named the children with several forenames - Oh well can't have everything!


Edit All births were in Ponders End, Enfield Middlesex! If that helps(didn't for me)
