red mail St. Pancras 1800's covered...???
I search for a John Ridley shown in later Census as born 1800 in just 'Pancras'. I have noted this on other searches. Is this an abbreviation of St. Pancras? If so can anyone define the area covered.

My great aunt Lina Schwab was born in 1874 in Nuvilly, canton Fribourg, Switzerland. On 10 September 1904 she married Henry Underwood in Zurich Switzerland. Henry Underwood was born 10 June 1880 at 50 Drummond Crescent, Somers Town, St Pancras, County of Middlesex. His parents are James Underwood and Susan Jane nee Bedford. James is a pianoforte maker. When he marries Henry is recorded as being a salesman. Henry and Lina live in London between 1905 and 1917. In the mid 1920s to early 1930 they live in Paris. From family correspondence I have established that they have one child called Teddy (short for Edouard or Edward). By 1936 they appear to be divorced. I am looking for descendants of Henry and Teddy Underwood.

Frederick's wife died in 1852, and he seems to have another woman living with him in the 1861 census. I would like to know about his life before 1837 and after 1852, particularly.

red mail Margaret GRANDIN / HILLS
My Gx3 grandmother was born Margaret GRANDIN, confirmed by the (Australian) marriage and death certificates of her youngest son, my Gx3 uncle Alfred Charles HILLS.

John and Margaret lived in Somers Town, St Pancras for many years, where they had 7 children between 1814 and 1829. John was a tailor. The only other information I have about Margaret is that she was born outside the county of Middlesex (1841 census) and died on 21st October 1850 in St Pancras, at the age of 69, making her birth about 1781. I believe that GRANDIN is either a French Hougenot or Channel Islands name. Any further information would be welcome.

red mail Bert and Nora Lodge , Saint Pancras
Looking for information on Alexander Bertram Marriott Lodge and his wife Nora (Meadows) Lodge. They were from Newcastle upon Tyne and moved to London in 1937, shortly after they married. Alexander was known as Alex to his brothers but was known as Bert to his colleagues and friends. He worked on the railways but we do not know what his exact job was. Being far away from home, his family lost track of him and Nora over the years, so we do not know if they had any children. Bert died in 1991 in Saint Pancras and Nora joined him in 1998. I am trying to gather information to piece together this couple's life (my uncle and aunty), where they lived and what kind of a life they had, to add to my family tree. Should any people who knew them read this, I would be pleased to take up correspondance with them and share any information that I have on them
red mail Stumbke
I am looking for information on a gt gt uncle Henry Stumbke. Henry was born in 1846 bap St Anne Soho London. He trained as an engraver along with his elder brother Edwin,living in the family home then in Pancras London. The two emigrated to Australia. There is record of a run of voyages to and from Australia, some Id guess prompted by the death of their father in 1878 in Islington from whom each was due an inheritance. The chronological sequence of events seems as follows:- 1872 Edwin and Henry trading in Holborn possibly working for the Bank Of England 1874 Edwin to Australia 19-7-1879 Henry from Melbourne and on to Sydney on the Rodondo probably the last leg of a journey from London 18-2-1879 Edwin returns to London on Lusitainia August 1879 Edwin Returns to Australia on the Garonne 1880 Edwin and Henry were trading as engravers in Pitt Street Sydney 1881 Henry takes ship the Sobraon from Melbourne to London (presumably having first sailed from Sydney to Melbourne) and vanishes. He would have arrived after the 1881 census and IO have no trace from enquiry at the way stations Table Bay and St Helena. March 1881 Edwin commits suicide in Pitt Street Sydney whilst Henry is at sea, This leaves me with a loose end in that I have found no trace of Henry after he apparently set foot on the Sobraon He could have changed his name or emigrated onward elsewhere there is a family story that one of my gt grandfathers brothers went to America. I'd appreciate info on any sightings of Henry

red mail Thomas George Morgan - St Pancras
I am trying to find out what happened to Thomas George Morgan who was the son of Edward Morgan (coal porter) and Harriet Kalaher. Edward and Harriet had 3 sons: James Edward Morgan born cira 1884/85 in St Pancras, Thomas George Morgan born 2 Feb 1893 in St Pancras and Henry Joseph Morgan born 13 Apr 1897 in St Pancras. There may have been other children born in the 9 year gap between 1884 and 1893 but their births are not recorded. James Edward Morgan is shown as Edward in the 1891 Census, with Harriet and Edward, who are stated to be married, yet I cannot find a marriage record for them. They were living in Wellesley Street at that time. Later they moved to York Buildings, as shown in Henry's baptism record in 1897. Both the houses in Wellesley Street and the York Buildings were subsequently destroyed. I cannot find any of the family in the 1901 Census except there is a record for a Thomas Morgan from London aged 8 at a industrial school, which could be our Thomas. I've now found out that Henry was left on someone's doorstep, who brought him up as a foundling, but who was this kind person who brought him up? Henry lied about his age and joined the army. He was shot in the throat but survived. Any information would be gratefully received.

red mail Thiele
I paste below an extract from my Stumbke family history. I would be interesetred in contacting any desendants of Alice Bell and Alexander Ferdinand Gustave Thiele "Alice Bell 20 married Alexander Ferdinand Gustave Thiele at Tolmers Square independent (congregational) church on 19th December 1874. (5) He was a 23 year old Solicitors clerk, she was living at 96, High Street (presumably) Camden and he at 11, Tolmers Square. The witnesses were not obvious relatives, this, the location of the marriage near the grooms residence, and the use of a nonconformist church may suggest some kind of family rift - probably very temporary given their apparent appearance in the family album. In any event she must have got her father's consent to the marriage given she had not reached her majority. Alexander's father was Ferdinand Thiele - gentleman - (probably meaning retired and of independent means). The incidence of the foreign Christian names possibly indicates a relatively recent family arrival from the continent probably Germany). Alexander died in 1921 in Pancras and Alice in 1924 in Edmonton (which includes Tottenham). She may have moved to be nearer family. The 1881 census has Alice and Gustave (misspelt Thisle in census transcripts) aged 29 (presumably he preferred Gustave to Alexander) living with (or the other way around) Gustave's father Ferdinand along with 5 year old Frederick (Frederick Gustave from GRO Index) born Marylebone 1876 and Ada Alice born earlier in 1881. Without a proper search which I leave to someone researching 'Thiele' I can't be sure of the composition of the entire family - though there are several Thiele births in Pancras in the years following. What I have been able to divine is that Frederick appears to have married Eliza Annie Hurst in Pancras 1898. Eliza died in 1910 in Edmonton. Frederick remarried in 1915 - to Kate Evenden in Islington. Ada Alice married in 1900 in Edmonton" In the family photograph album are a number of photos which I think are of Alice, Gustave and three of their children.

red mail Miss Williams Bath 1918 and Thomas Gainsborough
I am trying to find out more information and have very little information to go by. A Miss Williams living in Bath in 1918 sent a consignement of paintings to Christies auction house in 1918. One of the paintings I now have which is a small oil on board landscape (Herdsman and Cattle painted in approx 1760's). I have been searching for sometime now on various websites to see if the surname Williams from Bath had any significant historical links to artists of that time in Bath. We have no more information on this painting since that time, so we are very keen to trace its History, and of course what could have happened to the painting between 1918 and ending up in New Zealand some significant years later. The History of the painting is I beleieve to be very closely tied with the History of the Williams family in Bath. We are trying to also establish whether or not the painting could be by Thomas Gainsborough whom also spent sometime in Bath. I would appreciate any information, no matter how small it may seem.

Shirley K. Garrad born 1935 - When I was five years old I was taken by your uncle Jabez (my father) to visit your mother (his sister, Violet) and you, no more than a week old. You had a shock of black hair all of three inches long. As you are my cousin, I would be very pleased if you are able to get in touch with me. Perhaps now Shirley K. Vincent, or James senior, James Junior, Nicholas K. or my namesake Joanne M would, if you are not into computers Shirley. Either way I was only five years old when I saw you and your mother and although I am now 79 I have never forgotten that scene and didn't know who you and your mother were. Just recently I went over my records of the family and realised that your mother was the only person it could be. So I looked for her marrage and as all the ages and dates matched I can tick off that memory that has been with me 74 years being able to put names to the memory. Your Uncle Jabez (Jim) died when I was fourteen. And I haven't been able to find John Richard the other brother of your mother. I do hope someone will answer, it will be great to hear from you.

red mail William Swaby b. abt 1847 St Pancras
Looking for any information on my gt gt grandfather William Swaby. According to his army records he was born in St Pancras, however I've never found any record of his birth. He joined the army at the age of 15 and remained with them for 50 years travelling around the world but spent his last 20 years at least in India. On his marriage certificate from India his father is listed as William Robert Swaby however I can find no mention of him in any census entry anywhere or a death record for him. The marriage was in 1885 and his father isn't listed as deceased so its possible he was still alive then. I'm also looking for William's fist marriage to a Martha Williamson, location unknown. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated. I hired a profesional researcher who found his army records but had no luck tracing his birth of family.
red mail Wild Family
I am researching the family of Thomas Wild b. abt 1798 Bloomsbury, and his wife Sarah Chappel Wilson b. 1796 Castle Coombe, Wilts. They had 7 children, all born in St Pancras - Thomas b. 1823, Mary 1825, James 1827, Ellen 1829, Charles 1832, Joseph 1836 and Samuel Chappel Wild 1841. Of these children I have found the following:- Thomas married Clara (surname unknown) and had 5 children Sarah Ann 1862 (kensington)Joseph 1867, Arthur 1869, Thomas 1875, William 1878 all born in St Pancras. Mary married William Bishop and had 8 children. James (my ancestor) married Mary Ash and had 6 children (although there is some mystery as to whether he actually married Mary) - Angelina 1862 (marylebone), Mary Alice 1867 (St Pancras), Ellen 1868 (hampstead rd), James 1871 (St Pancras), Edith 1873 (St Pancras), Minnie Elizabeth 1875 (Chalk farm, St Pancras). I have not been able to trace any of the others, however I do know that Samuel Chappel Wild was involved in a divorce petition twice, both times to the same woman, it appears his wife ran off with her nephew (one of the Bishop children). If anyone has links or can add any further information then it would be great to hear from you.

red mail Collins & Byrne
My grandfather was Denis George Collins 1912 - 1945, twin to John Michael Collins (known as Mick),wife May, 2/3 children. They were the son's of Michael John Collins born about 1876, possibly in Ireland. Michael had a brother Henry Collins (a scholar) & sister (known as) Sissie Collins. Michael worked as a railway porter at St Pancras & married Jane Byrne who was born c.1880. I've been advised that Michael Collins came from the Cork area & Jane Byrne from Dublin but think they only met in St Pancras. Michael's father was Denis Collins, a baker & Jane's father was Michael Byrne, a carpenter. A relation at the wedding was Teresa Byrne? I know Uncle Henry did a lot of research into the family history but he died in the 1970's & I wondered if anyone knew what became of it or if anyone can help in my search for my Irish ancestors

red mail Hills family in St Pancras
My great great grandfather was William Alexander Hills. He was born in St Pancras around 1816. A William Alexander Hills was baptised in Old St Pancras on 26 May 1816, with parents John and Margaret. I have found a further 6 children baptised in Old St Pancras between 1814 and 1829 with parents John and Margaret Hills, who could be siblings of William Alexander. The baptismal record for Frederick Henry Hills (1825) given by Pallot's Index says his father John was a tailor. The marriage certificate of Elizabeth Amelia Hills (bapt. 27 Dec 1818) to Thomas Dunsford Stacey on 11 July 1841 also states that her father John Hills was a tailor. However, my father believed that William Alexander's father was a shoemaker. Unfortunately, family records which might confirm this have gone astray. Either my father was wrong, or there was more than one couple called John and Margaret Hills living in St Pancras in the early 19th century. I have found other references to a John Hills, tailor, who had been born in Ramsey, Hunts in about 1788, and the other children, which make a reasonably believable story, but nothing which definitely links William to this John. Does anyone have anything which might help? More information available on request
