red mail Joseph Clark, b 1874, Chelsea
Looking for records for Joseph Clark, born 1874, Chelsea. He reportedly had some sort of accident as a youngster,around 1879 or 80, which resulted in a hospital visit and the diagnosis of a concussion. As a result, the doctor told his mother that he was to stay out of school for five years. Apparently, Joey had a great time baiting and 'teasing' the truancy officers! Does anyone have any idea where the Chelsea hospital records would be found today, and what the name of the hospital would have been? Also, where would I find truancy officer records?

red mail Family of John Saunders - Chelsea
John Saunders was born in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire circa 1853. His wife Phoebe was born in Belgravia in 1863, she died in 1908. They lived in Meek Street, Chelsea and had several children; Caroline b.1884. Phoebe b.1888 - d.1905, Ivy (aka Louie) b.1891, Lucy b.1891 - d.1894, Maude b.1894, Fredie b.1897 and May b.1901. My husbands paternal grandmother was Caroline but the family history gets very sketchy beacause we can find no record of her ever marrying. She registered her son, Frederick's birth without a father but two years later she registered her daughter, Carrie Grace, and gave the father as Ernest Saunders and against her own name is the entry 'formally Paine'. To further complicate matters she brought both children up thinking their name was Chapman and put them in to a childrens home in Banstead in 1927 under that name. The only other clue we have to the possible identity of the father is that on both the birth certificate and on my father-in-law's marriage certificate, the profession of Ernest Charles) Saunders is shown as a miller (brewery). We would love to find anyone who might have connections with this family.

red mail Acton & Chelsea families - Norris, Henbery and Sharpin
Hi - My g-g-grandfather John Sharpin Norris was born 1826 in Bond St London but lived in Bury St Chelsea. His siblings, Charlotte Lain Johnson Norris b.1824; William Charles Norris B.1832; Martha Caroline Herbert Norris B.1835 were all born at Bury St. Chelsea. Charlotte married James George Henry Hancock in 1847 & had at least 3 children. Their parents were John Norris B.1802 at Acton (son of John & Martha Norris, also of Acton) and Charlotte Henbery married in Chelsea in 1823. I have not been able to locate any birth details for Charlotte - also cannot, as yet, make the connection with Robert Henbery. However following details (including the Sharpin middle name) certainly suggest a family connection, possibly brother & sister? William Sharpin Henbery b.1812 to Robert & Ann Henbery. William's daughter Emma B.1849 later listed on 1881 census as Martha Norris's cousin. Both cousins were bonnet cleaners & living in Chelsea. There seems to be quite a few Henberys located in the Middlesex area, as well as a few Sharpins. Any information regarding any of the families (especially helping me to make the connection) would be appreciated thanks! Val

red mail GREEN
Seeking details of a James Green, born c.1810 (but I do not know where) and living in the Brompton/Cheslsea/Kensington area, a coachman according to his son's marriage certificate. James's wife was Ellen (maiden name unknown, though gave Weybridge as her birth-place on census returns); their first child was born c.1837. My 2xgreat-grandfather William was born c.1844. I have no details at all about James other than his name appearing on a marriage certificate; he must have died by 1851 as it seems that there are no children born after about 1846 and Ellen is styled 'widow' on later census returns. It has not yet been possible to locate them on the 1841 census.
