THOMAS WILSON
I am trying to establish the true identity and early life history of a man calling himself THOMAS WILSON who used 1888 as his year of birth. He is my friend's grandfather. In June 1923 Thomas is shown on his son Eric's birth certificate as living at 23 Wansey Street, with Eric's mother Alice Wilson living at 12 Guilford Street. I have been able to follow most of his history from that point on until his death in 1951, including the birth of his second son Ernest, the family's addresses and Thomas' various jobs, always unskilled, but I do not know who he really was. Alice Wilson (also known as Ruby Alice BROADLEY) was from Hull in Yorkshire and I understand that Thomas also had a strong Yorkshire accent. Alice's early life in Hull has been traced and contact made with descendants from her marriage to Matthew Broadley. It seems likely she left Matthew and their children to start a new life with Thomas. From 1939 Alice and Thomas lived with their boys in Mottingham in Kent and Thomas, along with many of his neighbours, worked as a heavy labourer on a Wharf, but I do not know which one. Any information about Thomas' earlier life would be very much appreciated.

Edward Might Mordan J Gardner
I have found this member of the Gardner family as a witness to the wedding of William John Gardner and Maria Amelia Williams at St Philips Church Clerkenwell on January 12th 1859. I have no other knowledge of the existence of Edward Might Mordan J Gardner who seems likely to be a relative of the bridegroom and would therefore be part of my family tree. Can anyone throw any light on how I might trace this person or have any knowledge about him? My thanks in advance for any help. Roger.
red mail Jan Kemp
Jan Kemp was a Dutch captain who sailed many times from Holland to London with cargo. In 1819 however he brought back "a real English manufactured from England bathing machine " He started this way the tourism in Noordwijk Holland. I like to find out more about the buying or ordering or exporting of bathing machines as I can't find any adverts in the newspaper so maybe curious fox can help me out.
red mail James Ferdinand Kirche married with Louisa Caroline Groux- had daughter Caroline Julia Kirch in London 1830
Hello, James Ferdinand Kirche turns up on his daughters baptism at St Marylebone, Westminster, England 18 Apr 1830 His spouse is listed as Caroline Kirche. At the time of the baptism Caroline Julia the daughter is listed as 17 days old (1 April 1830). James Ferdinand is listed as a servant. Caroline Julia gets married to Ezra Edward twitchett turning up as Caroline Julia Groux Kerche- James Ferdinand accidentally gets listed as Charles because at the time Caroline and Ezra were living together on a Charles Street. Hes now listed as a butler. Its condusing because James and Caroline are not on any census in London and Caroline first turns up on census when shes married to Ezra. She gets married again and does as Caroline Julia Horseman on 28 March 1898. There are no marriages for James Ferdinand Kirsch/ Kirche/ Kerche with anyone and presumably Carolines mothers name was Groux nut again its unclear because she doesnt exist in the records other than her daughters baptism. Any help would be appreciated thank you.

red mail Thomas Davies
I am trying to find my paternal great grandfather Thomas Davies. All I know about him is that he married Sophia Collins in 1870 at St George Hanover Square London. His marriage certificate says he was "of full age" and that he was a butler. The couple had 3 children - Thomas, Arthur and Nelson but on the censuses from 1871 - 1911 he does not appear with his wife. I cannot find a birth for him but his marriage certificate tells me that his father is also called Thomas Davies. Sophia and the children moved to Lee which was then in Kent. Thomas (the eldest son)is given as the informant on Sophia's death certificate in 1913. Until then she says she is married. I've been searching for about 20 years so if anyone can help me I would be more than grateful. Thanks Chris.

red mail Great Pulteney Street London
On the trail of my great grandmother Beatrice Bunce. The 1901 census finds her at Great Pulteney Street, Soho, London as an inmate along with 8 other women and a woman listed as matron. Census date 31/3/1901. Beatrice gave birth to a daughter in April 1901 and was not married until 1902. I assume this is a refuge for single mothers. Any suggestions where I might be able to find any information about this? The census did not give the street number. I'd like to be able to check if my assumption is correct and it is then another step forward in tracking her.
red mail Caroline Julia Groux Kerche died 28 March 1898
Caroline married Ezra Edward Twitchett, Name: Ezra Edward Twitchett Spouse: Caroline Julia Groux Kerche Record Type: Marriage Event Date: 31 May 1852 Parish: St Mary, Newington Borough: Southwark Father Name: Benjamin Twitchett Spouse Father: Charles Kerche Register Type: Parish Register it's strange because she was the daughter to a Charles Kerche. Many public member trees point to a Jakob Kirsh and yet this does not seem to be accurate. The source trail leads to a Charles Kerche. However, there's absolutely no record involving a Charles Kerche and anyone with the surname Groux, other than the Ezra Edward Twitchett- Caroline Julia Groux Kerche marriage listed above. Charles, who was working as a butler at the time in question, signed the actual paperwork as Charles. He was not the Jakob Kirsch that was on some other source. Presumably, Julia was the daughter to Louisa Carolina Groux. Here the trail again gets bizarre, as the German records at the time had a tendency to Latinise names, and Louisa's mother is impossible to trace as the German records put her as Mariae Victoriae Du May when she had Louisa on 9 December 1804 though other than that, there's really no record involving a 'Mariae Victoriae Du May', and the name has clearly been altered somewhat, and the real one be something more like Maria Viktoria DuMais etc. Probably some Hugenoet extraction. They were in Braunschweig which had a hugenoet population similar to Shoreditch. The Charles Kerche individual is hard to trace- he may have married Louisa in Germany and not England. He worked as a butler somewhere but where he did is not listed on the public records. Who were they? Caroline sometimes even appears as Julia Caroline Groux Kerche. It's just a strange situation. There's certainly no traceable record that a Charles Kerche and a Louisa Carolina Groux ever actually met.
red mail WICKS, Sarah, and, CLULEY, Richard.
Hi, any information on the above people would be much appreciated of course. They married in Bethnal Green London 20 Nov 1829 Parish: St Matthew, Bethnal Green. Richard lived between 1801 and Unknown; Sarah was 10 years younger 1811- unknown. Their children were Sarah, Thomas, Richard, and then William. Sarah would marry MCCARTHY, James (sometimes written as Carter). And they would have a son John James McCarthy. They seem to have been mostly located in Shoreditch. John James McCarthy would then marry Elizabeth Sarah Hutt. They would have a son Louis John McCarthy/ Carter. Can't get any deeper into the Wicks line though. Thankyou.
red mail Violet Dora Carter (married name Twitchett) 16 December 1905- 31 December 1985
She was the daughter to Louis John McCarthy (also known as Carter at this point in time), and a Ms Sarah Harwood. Got that much. However, there are multiple Sarah Harwoods in the Shoreditch area, and it's impossible to place which one is the mother to Violet Dora Carter 16 December 1905- 31 December 1985 and thus can't get any deeper into the whole tree. Louis was the son to John James McCarthy/ Carter, and Elizabeth Sarah Hutt. Got all the records necessary there. But haven't got a clue who Violet's mother Sarah was. Thankyou.

red mail William John Glover
Does anyone have any knowledge of William John Glover (my grandfather)? All I have is a marriage certificate when he married Helen Dorothy Robinson. That was in 1920 and my father was born 3 weeks later and on his birth certificate his father is shown as a Butler/Servant  both mother and baby were living at grandparents address. My Grandmother married again as a widow a couple of years later  but her widowhood is in doubt  as there has been no trace of William Johns death anywhere and poor mans divorce (bigamy) seems to have been a family tradition. All the information on the marriage certificate has been exhausted. It shows William John Glover working as an Indoor Servant at St Johns Wood, London and father (John) deceased, occupation (indoor) servant. William John Glover was born circa 1900 and there are several with the same name on the 1901 census none of which have a father John and the places of birth vary widely thought the country  including Scotland. The nearest scrap of info I have come across is in the 1901 census where a William John Glover was born to Arthur John and Maria Charlotte Glover from West Ham  but that William John became a Railway worker not a servant.

MOLLY MENSE
This was the name by which Elizabeth Murphy was known on the stage. She came from Ireland (b 1873) but there is no written evidence of her and no reference anywhere. The only family information is that she did perform in London around the turn of the century. Her only living relative (granddaughter) was never told anything so no help there ! She did use her stage name on a birth certificate but this happened just once. Her married name was Sinkings. Any help would be welcome just to see if and where she did perform. Tony.

red mail BARRETT: Harcourt, Ellen Rosina, & Caroline Yeoman
My great-great grandfather Harcourt BARRETT (b. late 1838, Walworth Surrey) was married to Louisa Emma STEDMAN in 1862. They had 5 children together between 1864 and 1868. Harcourt appeared to have had an affair with Ellen Rosina YEOMAN (b. 1859, St Pancras Middlesex) and deserted his family in January 1881. They came to South Australia and had a daughter, Caroline Yeoman BARRETT, born 29 Nov 1881 at Kent Town. They had Lina BARRETT (b. 1885 - d. 1886, age 15 mths) and Eugene (Edward) Harcourt BARRETT, b. 1887. They moved to Western Australia around March 1904, and settled in Perth. Harcourt died 22 Oct 1904, Subiaco WA (age 65). His death certificate states that he married Ellen when he was age 37 (making the year of marriage 1876) and that it took place in London. I can't find this marriage anywhere in English records. Now I'm thinking that the marriage may be illegitimate. I also can't find the passenger list or name of the ship that they came on to Australia. On 18 July 1908, his second-youngest child from his first marriage, Julia, puts out a search for her father in the Perth 'The Daily News' newspaper. It says her father left home in January 1881. In the 1881 England census, Louisa has her status as "Married", but in 1891 is stated as "Widowed". She may have assumed he had died mysteriously, until hearing whispers of otherwise. Just wondering if anyone out there can shed some light or information on the questionable marriage with Ellen, or why I cant find their names on any passenger list. Was it common for people to use fake names?? The whereabouts of Ellen Rosina after 1914 is unknown to me. In that year, she was listed as Edward Harcourt BARRETT's next of kin in his AIF enlistment. Ellen was living on St Georges Terrace, Perth WA. Edward was sent over to England during WW1, and married Ethel Mary BATEMAN. I also would like to know what happened to Caroline Yeoman BARRETT. She moved from Australia to England some time before 1911. In the 1911 England census, she was working at a nursing home in West Kensington. She is recorded as single and age 29. I have no idea what became of her after this, or if she even married. Since both surviving children were in England, Ellen may have had no reason to stay in Australia and may have headed back to her homeland. So many holes to fill in! Any help would be kindly appreciated :)
red mail Islington, London, in 1936
My Grandma (sent by Barnardo's, to Canada in 1923) had a brother who, according to Barnardo's (in their letter re my Grandma's file) was "last recorded as working in a situation in Islington, London, in 1936 (21 yrs old). I have a photo of him as a young man in a military uniform (passed down from my Grandma). Would there have possibly been a workhouse there at that time? Any ideas anyone could offer as to what type of "situation" this young man could have been in at that time, would be appreciated. Thank you!
red mail Lavinia Campbell Mullins, mother unto LESLIE ROBERT GEORGE GAULD.
Lavinia was originally Argyll; her dad Sir Robert Mullins was in the Royal Navy, and her mother Isabella Bell Hamilton was originally a Glasgow resident who moved to Argyll with Robert, in between having lived in Portsmouth. Lavinia became GAULD when she married George. Here's where the actual problem arises: I was under the impression this was GEORGE OGG GAULD, the son unto EDGAR and CATHERINE. However, whilst GOG was the right age range, and worked as a military psychiatrist whilst Lavinia was a mental health nurse, so it's likely they were together, George Ogg Gauld- originally Aberdeen though who lived in Dublin and Nottingham- does not seem to have lived in London. Lavinia shows on multiple censi and the electoral rolls living in London with her husband George. Who's surname was Gauld. Leslie Robert George Gauld, and his younger brother Stanley John Gauld, were Londoners despite Leslie's very Scottish name betraying his ancestral roots, lol. I don't think it's correct that GEORGE OGG GAULD married Lavinia, unless they actually divorced and he returned to Nottingham and hospital where he worked, as George died in Nottingham, played cricket in Nottingham, worked within hospitals in Nottingham, and this is recorded on the hospital records and a internet search concerning GEORGE OGG GAULD turns multiple results up on SERP (Search Engine Results Page) including his actual photos, as the guy I have believed was the great grandad was a semi celebrity. Could somebody help, please, as I am really getting close to giving up with genealogy now; I don't know whether George Ogg Gauld and Lavinia divorced, or whether a separate George who just happened to have the surname GAULD, originally have come Aberdeen, same time range as GOG, and also get involved with a mental health nurse (as already stated, GOG was a military psychiatrist), was the actual husband. I don't think it's possible he commuted to Nottinghamshire; we're talking early C20th and they were living in the very southern areas London (Chelsea, Westminster, Richmond, Kingston, Merton, etc). Please somebody help. Lavinia died 7th May 1947. George Ogg Gauld died 16th June 1951. So a similar time. Lavinia only granted any estate to Leslie; George doesn't turn up, and neither does Stanley, only Leslie was given any estate whatsoever. Leslie would die 18th November 1954.

red mail LOUIS JOHN CARTER 1881-UNKNOWN, Shoreditch
Seeking information on the above person, Louis John Carter; he was the son of John 1853-unknown and Elizabeth 1856-unknown- don't know Elizabeth's maiden surname. LouiS would marry Sarah of the family Harwood. They would have children; Violet Dora Carter and Gladys Diana Kathleen Carter. Violet would marry William Ezra Twitchett and die on New Years Eve 1985 of a heart attack. Gladys would die in 2003 of Dementia. I think the Carter family originated in Ireland just judging by what the late grandfather said, and was originally MacCarty; however, sadly he'd not given any clue how long ago they left and, certainly, Violet and Louis and John were all London. Was wondering whether anybody else could help, plox?

red mail CURTIN, Mary and GALLIERS, Herbert marriage circa 1958/1959.
I'm trying to discover anything on the marriage above mentioned between the Irish immigrant nurse Mary and her new husband Herbert T Galliers. Mary already had some bastard children, Robert and Georgina, with GAULD, Leslie Robert George Gauld. Mary did not marry Leslie, who died im 1954. She took her actual husband's name, Galliers, under which she died in Sutton, London, England , 2013. I'm wondering id anybody knows her actual parents. I have personally discovered a Mary J Curtin of a Kerry town called as Brosna on the Irish census records 1911. However, this Mary daughter of Curtin, Charles & Shine, Bridget, seems have died in America late 1980s. And thus is not grandmother. Even though she was thus 1911, and this the right age for Leslie (1907). Thank you so much in advance, -Oliver.
