Hi Steve,

Not sure that this is the right one, although the ages seem to match!

In 1891, Thomas B Granger 52, Emma M 49, Marie Peacock 18 and Annie Clarke 16 are in Ely, Cambridgeshire.

Thomas B is a Fruit Grower born Ely Cambridge.

Let me know what you think! If it's not the right one, I'll have another look!

Josie

PS Just found him in Shoreditch in 1891 (on FMP). Will investigate further and get back to you!

Hello again,

Here are the people in Shoreditch in 1891.

GRANGE, Annie 1878 13 F
GRANGE, Emily 1854 37 F
GRANGE, George Merritt 1875 16 M
GRANGE, Harry 1877 14 M
GRANGE, Mary Ann 1884 7 F
GRANGE, Thomas 1840 51 M

If it is the right family, then Emma has been transcribed as Emily. The info above was from FMP, but I haven't yet found them A*y! :biggrin:

Thanks folks. Just checked Ancestry, and that page is missing.:eek:

It starts with house number 7, Chatham St.

On the previous page there is Samuel & Eliza Chalk at Chatham Avenue Offices.

No wonder I couldn't find them.

email sent to Ancestree.;)

Thanks again all.

Tell me about it Steve! I spent a couple of hours searching with all sorts of combinations of names, to no avail! I thought I was losing my marbles, because it was CLEARLY there on FMP! I'm really pleased you've reported it!

Good Night,

:) Josie

You haven't asked for any other census returns. I am just wondering where the children were in 81. I cant find them.
Also it seems funny to me that George, Harry, Annie and Mary were called Merritt and Merriott was Emma's maiden name but she did not marry until 1889. Thomas and Ellen were together in 1861/71/81, no children, but they didn't marry until 1864?? So have we three wives, Ellen, Emily and Emma, If the same person did Emma/Emily have the four children when she met Thomas, if so she may have been married before, or have I gone wrong

Just noticed another thing, Emily was from South Weald, Essex - Emma from West Holey Berks

Hi Dave,

Emma/Emily does appear to be from South Weald & Brentwood. To me, they are the same place.
Yes, she was married before.

I have no interest in the Merriot/Merritt/Merion Children. George & Mary Anne Merritt appear as niece & nephew in 1901, plus Minnie(1894) & James Thomas Grange(1897).

James Thomas Grange baptism, appears in the London records, although I haven't found Minnie's baptism, just her birth registration.

I have yet to chase up Thomas Grange jnr, but I'll be doing that later.

I'll be back after I've watched the F1 Grand prix qualifying.:rolleyes::2fun::2fun:
