William Archer was the son of George Archer and Mary Ann Steward.
He was born in Hornchurch, Essex, c1870, and baptised in the local church on 24 February 1870. He appears in the 1871 census (aged one) and the 1881 census (aged 11) living with his parents and siblings at North Street, Hornchurch. Following his mother’s death, he is living with his father at the same address in the 1891 census (aged 19) and 1901 census (aged 27), described as an agricultural labourer and farm labourer. He then disappears from the records.
I can’t find him in the 1911 census, nor can I find an appropriate death for him. Can anyone help me? gross value of £1095 5s 10d while the net value was just £177 10s 4d.
I thought the main difference was funeral expenses, legal expenses and any debt, but £900 difference sounds rather a lot. He was 78 at the time so I’m guessing he was too old for a mortgage.
Does anyone have any ideas of what else could explain the disparity here? Chadwi
Question about marriage banns bit.ly/1O7CYTw I’m researching the Stainer family who have lived in Dorset since the 1700s.
Francis Stainer married Jane Hopkins in Lydlinch in 1781. This is documented in the parish records that I found on Ancestry.
I also found a record for their marriage banns that were read at the parish church in 1777. This shows that they were both residents of the Lydlinch parish at the time.
My question is about the four-year gap between the banns and the actual marriage. Is this unusual and does anyone have any ideas about the reasons for this long delay?
Help finding death for Joseph Lloyd bit.ly/1O7D65k I have been trying to find out when Joseph Lloyd died for several years now.
He was born in Wistanstow, Shropshire, and was baptised on 2 November 1862.
All of the censuses say that he was born in 1863. From what I can find he worked on the railways all his life. He was working as a station master at Wrockwardine, Shropshire, in 1891 and then at Bodenham, Herefordshire, in 1901.
The last recordrd that I can find him on is the 1911 census when he is living in Ludlow.
I’m at a loss asa to where to lookk now as I’m not sure if he stayed in Ludlow. His wife was called Mary Ann, but I can’t find her death either as I thought it wouldd give me a betterr location. I have tried guessing a date and changing the location, but still no luck.
Does anyone have any ideas? nlm244 Can anyone help with dating this family photo (shown below)?
We originally thought it might be my great great grandmother Sarah Bate who died in 1889, aged 49, but we then thought the clothes looked more recent than that. My cousin Roy and I would be most grateful for any help with dating the photograph.
All suggestions gratefully received. Kidson_ genealogist
