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

As Margery Cook was born in Hulme Manchester, the family may be lost in the unfilmed part of Manchester....namely Greengate, and Regent Road, Salford.

Can't find no obvious 1851 entries Dave, for her family.

Hello Steve,

Thank you very much for looking.

Re James, he ended up in Australia where he married in 1864. They had 3 children by 1871 and then James and spouse vanish. I have nothing to indicate he had a middle name and no idea of his trade/profession. He has not been found in shipping records.

William and family are in the same area Hume from 1861 to 1891 so I guess they were in Lancashire in 1851. I'll put '1851 ?' in my database.

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Of course. :2fun:

Well 1851 and 1871 have Anston, Yorkshire. :D

I asked again because I'm not convinced by this one:

Name: Elizabeth Cook
Est. birth year: abt 1819
Year of Reg: 1894
Qtr of Reg: Apr-May-Jun
Age at Death: 75
District: Bury
County: Greater Manchester, Lancashire
Volume: 8c
Page: 275


They lived in Hulme from 1851 to 1891 so why Bury?

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thanks for looking.

One daughter Margery unmarried aged 43 living with her in 1891.

Other daughter Ellen b. 1847 Hulme.

Now I don't have a marriage or death for Ellen or Margery.

Regards,

Dave

There are several in Bury so I've ruled them out.

This one is more likely.

Hello crankypants,

Thanks.

:2fun: May I change my mind again? >:D

Deaths Dec 1898
Cook Elizabeth 79 Barton I. 8c 418

I was looking at this one for another season.

Elizabeth ROGERS c. 5 Apr 1818 Anston, Yorkshire, England
John & Sarah
Batch: C073861

Born a bit earlier hence I didn't think the Manchester one was a perfect fit. ;)

I know it said she was born in Nottingham but twice it said Anston !!

Also, the census says Rose Ann ROGERS was born in Sheffield but I doubt that. It's not a common name and I can't see a birth in Nottingham 1862-1865. Ok, it says Sheffield again.

Regards,

Dave
