Parry (school teacher) in Aylesbury around 1939
My Taid (Welsh Grandfather) had an older brother William Thomas Parry who was born in Brynrefail in 1884. He became a teacher and married Jennie Taylor in Hailsham in 1909. He was a headmaster in Wimbledon in 1925. I lose track of him then but can see his wife in Aylesbury on the 1939 Register, shown as Married (not Widow). But the entry above her is blanked out so presume it is him though don't know why he was blanked out but she was not. I don't think they had any children but would be interested if anyone in that area is related to them. MB
red mail Please could anybody help me find information on Thomas Albert Kempster?
Please could anybody help me find any information on my 4x Great Grandfather Thomas Albert Kempster? I have lots of information about him after 1871, he married Mary Ann Bradshaw and settled in North Shields, Northumberland and became an Umbrella Maker owning his own business and having 12 children according to the 1911 Census but I've only managed to locate 8. He seems a mystery as I can't find for him before this date 1871. Census records tell me that Thomas Albert Kempster was born roughly 1845/1846 in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire however, I can't find a birth index or locate him in the 1851 and 1861 Census. I did find two prison records for an Albert Kempster born roughly the same dates. 1862, Guildford for assault and in 1863 he was convicted for begging in Wandsworth. I'm certain that this is him as is says he was partially blind in one eye on the records and in the 1891 Census it says he is blind in one eye from infancy. No birth index for this Albert Kempster either. I would be entirely grateful if anybody could help me find any information on Thomas Albert Kempster! Thank you, Olivia

red mail John Walker - 1839 to when ?
My great great grandfather John Walker was born in Longwick, Buckinghamshire in 1839. He married Kate Hodgkins and they had 2 sons. I have records for his birth, marriage and for the 1851 census. In the 1861 and 1871 censuses his wife and the boys are living with her parents. In the 1861 census she is "married" but a widow in 1871.
