red mail George Rouse
I am looking for information about George ROUSE, born in 1834 in, I believe, Lincolnshire, but who moved to London and married first of all Ann BATTY in 1857, and then Helen, or Ellen, CLEMENTS in 1866. He may have worked as a driver when he first came to London, but by 1861 appears to have been a tailor. I can find nothing about him between 1866 and 1881. He died in 1882.
George John RUSSELL born 1843/44 was my great grandfather. He was born in London, his father being John RUSSELL born 1819 in Stanton Harcourt Oxon. John RUSSELL was married to Elizabeth ODGERS from Cornwall in 1845 in London but she is not George John RUSSELL's mother.There are several George or George John Russell's in London at this time and to compound the situation he was married as John George Russell. In 1864 he married Sarah Ann Pratt and had four children, two of whom died young. My grandfather, Charles Henry and Sarah Elizabeth Adeline survived. At the age of 27 he died of a fractured skull as a result of an accident at work in a brewery in Whitechapel on 19th February 1871. I am unable to progress until I know who my great grandmother was. The children were born in the areas of Whitechapel/Mile End/and Bethnal Green. So far I have been unable to obtain the Coroner's report. John RUSSELL went on to have thirteen children and according to his marriage certificate he was a bachelor prior to marrying Elizabeth ODGERS. Any help with this brick wall would be gratefully received. Edna

red mail Tailor from London 1800s
My sister and I are trying to trace our ancestor, Henry Baker. We only know, from census records, that he was born in approx. 1809, possibly at St George's in the East, and his wife's name was Eliza (possibly Elizabeth). She was born in Redditch in approx. 1816. They were living in Liverpool in 1844 when their son, Albert was born, but in the 1851 census they were living separately in London, where he is listed as a tailor in lodgings. They had two older girls, Emma and Eliza, born in Hull and ? Liverpool. We have been searching the family history websites for a long time, but can find no trace of their birth or marriage records. (we wonder whether a marriage actually took place) If anyone can help us with information especially names of their parents, we would be really grateful. Lyn

red mail Moses Magnus of Whitechapel
In researching my family history a relative has given me a birth record for a MOSES MAGNUS - it is headed as a birth certificate but seems to be a retrospective acknowledgement of birth in the UK - it's dated 1807 but the birth is written out as being March 1765. Place of birth is stated as Jewry St Aldgate and the heading of the certificate says 'Birth certificate of M Isaacs' so I am assuming that Magnus would have been born to Jewish parents. If this rings a bell with anyone I'd be interested to know any family history as I cannot tie this in presently with any of my own familial names.

red mail Any McCormacks out there with ties to Whitechapel, London?
My 2nd great granddad, Thomas McCormack, is supposed to have been born in the Whitechapel district of London, possibly on February 23, 1820. It’s assumed that his family were Irish immigrants in London; his father probably a wharf or dock worker. My family is at a dead-end regarding Thomas’ line, and would love to know more about his origins. Thomas had settled in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA by the 1840’s. Family lore says that he was a ship captain, but he was more likely a sailor by profession. In 1849 he met and married Irish immigrant, Mary Agnes McCarthy, there in New Orleans. By the 1870’s, the couple had settled in Kansas, with Thomas making a living by farming. Together they reared a large family. Would love to hear from you should any of this ring any bells Thanks.
