red mail Donohue in Strand
I'm looking at a family in the 1861 Census living at 2 Denham Yard, Westminster St Mary le Strand, Middlesex, England. Donohough or Donohue from time to time the parents are Irish and he is a stone mason or paver. At this date the youngest son James (b.1841) is a boot maker. I believe I have found the death cert for the mother Julia (b.1867) in Pancras but failing so far to find a trace of the men. I suspect Thomas appears as a boarder in an 1871 census near Little Moorfields, London, but tentative only. Of his son I cannot find a trace. the Donohue name is much more common in the area than I expected and and their are many people with similar names to be found. I have ordered the death record for Julia and awaiting it, hoping it might have a few slight clues if it is correct. I am directly related to their elder son John who had left the home years earlier.

red mail The aristocrat who witnessed my ancestors marriage in 1798.
Very convoluted genealogy here. Lol. My ancestors are Adam a Kirche and Angelique Hans who married in 1798. Their son James Ferdinand Kirche is my ancestor through his daughter Caroline Julia Kirche. Im not interested right now in Angelique, Adam, James, Caroline. The interest is solely in the witnesses to Adam and Angeliques marriage. The marriage is witnessed by the Vicomte Walsh de Serrant, a slave trader whos ancestry was Irish but who was a French noble, and the other witness is Le Comte De Cumont. Also married that year was Serrants daughter Marie married at his residence in Dorset St Manchester square Westminster. The witness again was Le Comte de Cumont. Another person who lived in Dorset Square was an Ann Grain who died in 1853. She left everything in her will to her goddaughter Ann Kearche. This god daughter was the daughter of Adam and Angelique. Ann Grain in turn had inherited almost the whole estate of a David Van Der Heyden, much older than herself who had been a senior official in the east India company and eventually an MP. Ann Grains death certificate originally called her Ann Bath although that was corrected to Ann Grain by Lawrette Adams and Mary Adams who turn up in census records with Ann KEITH their sister who is Ann Kearche as proved by her childrens names which are very distinctive- Lawrence Kirche/ Keith and Robertella Kirche/ Keith. Ann Grain not only used one other name but when she tried to realise part of the Van Der Kirk probate she couldnt because she, Mrs Ann Booth, was not a citizen of the American state it was held in!!! Im literally swimming in confusion with these people right now and still cant locate anything on Le Comte De Cumont. WHO are these people? WHY are random aristocrats witnessing the marriage of my ancestors who themselves dont seem to exist on other older records and are thus not themselves nobility? WHAT resulted in whoever Ann Grain is being the godmother of Ann Kearche, again a member of a seemingly unimportant family who dont exist in prior records? The ancestor I have from this couple is James Ferdinand Kirche who works as a servant interpreter who marries a HONORINE MULLOT in Paris in November 1823 and she is a bedchamber maid and then es back in London in 1830!!! And then vanishes again (presumably going back to Paris?). Why would James be an interpreter servant for a family who are presumably Cumont or Walsh and thus would know noth English and French and thus not require his service? And who is Cumont? I cant locate anything on the Comte de Cumont unlike Walsh the slave trader whos history is documented extensively.

CATLING Laura Annie
LAURA ANNIE CATLING is listed in the Electoral Roll of 1931 as living at 6 Norfolk Street, Westminster, London W1 in the household of Edward Stewart CRIPPS (who was later knighted), his wife Helena Woodley Cripps, Bertha GURNEY and Frederick Charles SELLS. Laura, born St George Hanover Square in 1891, was my gt aunt and I can find no trace of her after 1931, no entry in the 1911 census, nor a marriage or death record for Catling or Catlin. I would be most grateful for any information or help in finding further references to her.

red mail Westminster, Middlesex
Can you solve the mystery of Emma Beecroft b.1840., my Great Aunt and daughter of William & Ann Beecroft nee' Gifford. She is recorded in the 1841 Census as an 11 month old child, living at William Street, Westminster, London, but I cannot find her on any subsequent census. Must she remain an enigma?

Thomas Weaver b1826 St. George Hanover Sq.
My ggg-grandfather Richard Weaver married Mary Hunt in 1817 at St. James, Piccadilly, Westminster. In 1826 they lived at Ebury Terrace in St. George, Hanover Square. Richard was an Admiralty messenger and remained so in 1863 when son Thomas, a shoemaker and widower b 1826, married Mary Knight (b 1842 Bethnal Green). Unfortunately Thomas Weaver was absent from their household on the 1871 census and apparently died sometime between his last daughter's birth c1875 and the 1881 census, which lists Mary as widowed. With his father's Admiralty background I've been trying to find him in the Navy Records. If anyone recognizes him I'd greatly appreciate hearing from you.
