red mail Charles Henry Wood Short Wellington St Kirkstall Rd
I have the death certificate for this gentleman who is probably my great great grandfather. If correct, he was married to Elizabeth Wood nee Hough formerly Talbot, and had several children: Daniel born Leeds 1870 (birth cert held), Elizabeth born Leeds abt 1868 (unable to find birth certificate), Margaret born Portsmouh abt 1864 (unable to find birth certificate) and William born Devonport 1860. The two sons went to Malta and I know all about them, but the parents and the daughters disappear after the 1871 census. I suspect the parents died around the mid 1870's. Daniel was looked after by an aunt but where would the daughters have gone? A local children's home perhaps? I would be grateful for any information or suggestions which might help to tie all this together. Thank you.

red mail St. Simon's School, Ventnor Street
I am hoping to make contact with anyone who may have photos (particularly class photos) or any other information i.e. newspaper cuttings, about St. Simon's School, Ventnor Street, Burley. My father Stanley Foster was a pupil at this school, which was located on one of the famous Alphabet Streets, during the late 1920's and 1930's. His master was Mr. Marshall. The Headmaster was Mr. Hodgson. Stan had an older brother (John), older sister (Renee) and younger sister (Violet) who probably also attended St. Simon's. If there are any local historians, or anyone who had parents/grandparents who attended this school, and you have a photo from this period you would be willing to share, I would love to hear from you. Many thanks.
red mail Joseph Foster of Burley
I would like to hear from relatives of Joseph Foster, born on 12 July 1856 at 37 Florist Street, Burley, Leeds. His father was William Foster and mother Jane. He married Emily Williamson (born in Bradford on 23 December 1858) at Leeds Parish church on 9 September 1876. Joseph and Emily lived at 5 Greystone Place, Headingley cum Burley in 1881. They had children called Thomas William (1877), Charles (1879), Jane Ann (1881), Emily (1882), Harry (1886) and John (1888). Joseph had at least one more child with new wife Elizabeth Smith (called Percy born 1898) after Emily's death in 1892. I believe daughter Emily emigrated to Canada. Any info on family members would be much appreciated.
William Warrior was born into a family of gardeners in West Tanfield in 1848 but became a joiner and carpenter, reverting to gardening when he moved to Bradford. I would welcome the opportunity to communicate with anybody who knows more about William. Martin
