red mail Thomas ROBERTSON, Tailor, Westminster, Middlesex
Searching for info on Thomas ROBERTSON who was a tailor and lived at 12 Regent Street in 1836. His wife was Mary Ann SURNAME UNKNOWN ROBERTSON. They had two children who were baptized at St. John the Evangelist Church on 21 Feb 1836: Hector John ROBERTSON (dob 11 Apr 1833) and Isabella Elizabeth ROBERTSON (dob 31 Jan 1836). I have no other information on Thomas or Mary Ann and would love to know anything more about them. We believe from family anecdote that they came to America in 1836 or 1837 but have been unable to find exact info, partially due to the common names with no more info. Birth and baptismal info is on page 136 of the Parish register. After coming to America, son Hector John ROBERTSON ended up in Traverse City, Michigan for most of his adult life. I have been unable to locate information on Isabella Elizabeth ROBERTSON to date. Thank you for any information you can provide! - Dee

Can anyone offer a possible explanation for this or another direction to look in. Were babies born in the workhouse dealt with in some other way? Was there an infirmary involved?

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.

red mail Lettice White
Looking for any information on the White family. Lettice and Ann were two sisters. Ann was my ggg-grandmother, who married William Henley in Woburn, Bedfordshire in 1805, but probably wasn't born in Woburn (the only possible Ann White in Woburn was born in 1770 and thus 11 years older than William). The family moved to Brighton, Sussex by the 1830s and a letter written by her son John just after his marriage in 1838 mentions his aunt "Mrs White", and Lettice White was a marriage witness. Lettice White, in 1841 and 1851 living in Brighton, was born in St Clements London in the 1770s according to the 1851 census (when she was living in Brighton, unmarried). There was a White family in the St Clement Danes area: William White married Lettice Street at St Clement Danes 1772 - their children baptised there from 1773 included a first daughter Lettice in 1773 and a youngest daughter Ann Maria in 1785. There is a possibility that William (and the rest of his family?) moved to Woburn, Bedfordshire, some time after 1785. There was also a William White and wife Elizabeth in Woburn with a family - children born between the 1750s and 1770. Could have been the same William if his first wife died 1770. Any information at all about any members of this family would be welcome. In return I have information to share.

red mail FIRMAGE
John FIRMAGE married Sarah BANHAM at St Margaret's Church, Westminster in 1802. Have not yet been able to trace where he spent the first 20 years of his life. Their son William appears to have been born a year later somewhere in Kent. A Robert FIRMAGE was christened in St James, Westminster in 1808, he appears to have married Mary Ann CUMMINS in 1834 but know nothing further about him or if indeed he is the same family. John, Sarah & William all subsequently lived and died in Paddington. Any leads or suggestions on this line much appreciated.
Can anyone help with my query about this address please? The time I am interested in is between 1850 and 1861. Was it a lodging house or similar? My great great grandfather gave this address when he married at the register office St Martin in the Fields in 1858, and both my great grandparents gave it as their address when they married at the Sardinian Chapel in 1861.

red mail Surname - GEORGE
I have a great deal of information on the GEORGE family, children of John & Elizabeth (formerly Lutwyche) George who originated from Worcester, but lived and traded as Merchants in London in the early 1800's. I am fairly sure my own ancestor Thomas William GEORGE born about 1813/1814 fits into this family, but I cannot conclusively prove it. If anyone has any information on the following families I would appreciate their help. - 1) John GEORGE (1805) married Agnes (possibly formerly a HOMAN , related to Ebenezer Homan of Fiern Watch, children = Arthur George GEORGE (1837-1873), John Lutwyche GEORGE (1834-1842) & Agnes Elfida GEORGE (1838-1869). 2) Clement GEORGE(1806) married Elizabeth WELLS & later married Jane CROUCH, children = Clement John GEORGE (1835-1861), George Francis GEORGE (1838-1889) married Alice FILMER in 1867, Frederick GEORGE (1842-1877) & Herbert Walter GEORGE (1846-1919?) married Clara HEWITT in 1876. 3) Elizabeth GEORGE (1808-1894)married William EMBERLIN (the Emberlins were Stationers/Papermakers from the Oxford area) 4) Joseph GEORGE (1810-1868) married Harriet BRADBURY (descendants were Beadells). 5) Eleanor GEORGE (1817-1894?) married Nathaniel VYSE & later re-married Samuel ELLIS (descendants possibly OGLE, THORN & COULSON) 6) Frances Sarah GEORGE married Walter BELLAMY I am particularly looking for a link for Sophia GEORGE & Thomas William GEORGE to the above families, perhaps they appeared as witnesses on a marriage or death certificate. the families lived in and around London in the mid 1800's they were Leather Merchants and Upholsterers I have a lot of information that has cost me dearly and taken years to gather, but cannot, as yet prove that our Thomas William GEORGE was brother to the children above. However they have a lot in common - all were born in Worcester, all lived within streets of each other in 1841 in London , all were Merchants. Thomas William's marriage cert confirms his father's name was John GEORGE & the unusual name of "Clement" runs in both families, perhaps taken from the St Clements of Worcester. I have found the Christening records for all bar Thomas William & Eleanor George. The first 3 children John (1805), Clement (1806) & Elizabeth (1808) were all Christened in St Clements, Worcester. Joseph (1810) & Frances Sarah (1817) were Christened in Claines, Worcester. Thomas William GEORGE (1813/1814) fits the gap but I cannot prove it. Eleanor GEORGE (1815/1816)is definitely one of the children as she appears in a later Census as Frances Sarah's sister, but again I cannot find a Christening record, despite painstakingly searching LDS microfilm for both St Clements & Claines for both Eleanor & Thomas William George. ANY information would be greatly appreciated.
