Does anybody have this man in their family tree? Born in Whitehaven, Cumberland in 1892 to George Holmes and Jane nee Massey. He appears in both the 1901 and 1911 census at number 9 Michael Street, Whitehaven listed under his second name Albert In 1913 he married Sarah Ann Telford in Houghton le Spring, County Durham Sarah and George had seven children. Shortly after their last child was born in 1928 George did a flit and if family stories are correct he took the entire contents of the house with him. We have no trace of George after the youngest child was born, he just vanished but where did he go to? My suspicion is that he took up with or made a bigamous marriage with another woman and may have a second family

red mail Blevins, Blevans, Blevens
Trying to find anyone who is a Blevins and who may have investigated the Blevins ancestry in and around Whitehaven and preceding the end of the 18th century. I have been able to track my own lineage back to a Samuel Blevins who married a Margaret Winn in 1797 in Whitehaven and their subsequent son Samuel Blevins who married a Scottish girl named Nancy Graham in kirkcudbrightshire around 1825. They eventually had three daughters...2 born in Scotland and one when they returned to Whitehaven around 1829 before Samuel died in May 1830. Problem is I cannot locate any information on Samuel Snr. / Margaret Winn other than their marriage and some of their children. i am trying to trace his ancestors including where they came from, exact family members etc. etc. but despite extensive searches through local church records etc. i am no closer to finding answers. I'm hoping there are other Blevins family out there who may have info. and or relatives still living in Whitehaven, or any other info. that may help in this search. Other Blevins families still lived in Whitehaven through some of the later census reports but there are no links and i'm hoping somebody will know something that may help move forward. I am willing to share all info. I have found to date. Thanks Alan
