Re: look up on ancestry

Thank you for your very generous offer. There are many members who cannot afford to join sites if they are not locally based so your offer will open up new avenues.

I am looking for confirmation of the town in Nottinghamshire for

James Otter he married Hannah E ? problably in Sturton.

He had a son Jim (Grandpa Otter) b. 1879

Jim was born in Gainsborough but it appears the family moved back to Nottinghamshire and Jim then immigrated to South Africa and married here.

Any info would be appreciated

Regards
Izabel

Re: look up on ancestry

Hi Clanger

Would you mind Looking up for me:

Ada PORTWOOD b 02/05/1903
m James Henry GRANGER 14/04/1924
d 17/01/1981

I'm looking for her parents. She was born in March, Cambs

Could you also try to find James Henry's parents as well!!

James Henry GRANGER b 25/02/1903 March Cambs
d 10/02/1977 Chatteris Cambs

While you're there!! (Sorry!!)

Could you look for a marriage for me? Arthur William MUFFETT b 12/01/1898 in Downham Market (which I think is part of Norfolk) married a lady called Louisa (sorry no surname) who was born c1900

Thank you, thank you thank you thank you!!!!!

Hope you can help

Re: look up on ancestry

Hi Dawn

There are 10 Portwoods in March in the 1901, but only George (b. 1871) and Saul (b. 1844) could be Ada's father.
Saul has already got a daughter called Ada, so here's George's entry

West End, March
George Portwood 30 Railway Goods Porter Norwich, Norfolk
Lilly 28 Chatteris, Cambs
Clara 8 March, Cambs
Lydia 6 "
George 2 "
Harriet 1 month "


The Grangers - there's a choice of three males in March 1901 - Fred & two Georges, so ypu'll need to get a birth cert for him to be sure.

Can't help with the marriage I'm afraid.

Cheers
Ian

Re: look up on ancestry

Hi Ian

Thanks for that. I knew about Saul Portwood but doubted that he was my Ada's father. For a bit, whilst having a blonde moment, I thought that maybe Ada was Ada's mother but then I realised that, duh, she would have changed her name when she married George sounds like a good possibility though - problem is he was born in Norfolk and the parish registers are notoriously difficult to get hold of. The people in Norwich don't believe in sharing information Will take the info you've kindly given me and will dig deeper (only problem is that the hole is getting so deep I'm worried that I may not get out!!)

Re: look up on ancestry

Hi Dawn

This might help

1871 William Street, Norwich

George Portwood 36 Labourer b. March, Cambs
Lydia 34 Wenhaston, Suffolk
Clara 4 Lowestoft, Suffolk
Emma 2 Norwich
George 9 days Norwich (census date wss 2nd April)

1851 Bell Mettle, March

John Portwood 51 Ag Lab b. Emneth, Norfolk
Mary 48 Upwell, Norfolk
John 20 Ag Lab March
Elizabeth 19 "
George 17 Ag Lab "
Susanna 16 "
Mary Ann 11 Scholar "
Saul 9 " "

A trip through the wilds of Norfolk to the records office will get you access to the parish records
Cheers

Re: look up on ancestry

Hi Clanger,

Can I impose on your generosity as well.

I am looking for Henry Healey Sanders born 1891 in Kettering, Northampton.

Married 1915 in Kettering to Annie.E. Gibson born 1892

Father was Robert Sanders born 1848 Rothwell
Mother was Emma Healey born 1853 Kettering.

I have found him on the 1881 census but nothing after as I don't subscribe.
He was suposed to have adopted a daughter Mary but that detail is unclear.

All info I have comes from the family bible which started at Robert, so doesn't mention grandparents
Any help you can find will be greatfully appreciated.

Regards Peta
