You got her contact details? Will you please send it to me also her email. Thank you.
As I have a great grandfather called David JONES (no relation to you) I know that anyone researching JONES needs all the help they can get !
Am I correct in thinking that the marriage of Frederick JONES and Elsie Maude EVANS was registered in the Thornbury Registration district (see FreeBMD) during the June Quarter of 1909? If so, I think they can be found living at Almondsbury on the 1911 census with a young son,
As the children you mentioned were born between 1921 and 1931 there is rather a gap before they were born – do you know of other older children?
If this is the same family then Frederick JONES was born in about 1889 in Pilning and appears on the 1891 census with his parents Matthew and Harriet JONES living at Marsh Common Almondsbury. This differs from several Family Trees which appear on the Ancestry site which give him completely different parents so I’d be interested in what you have found out about the family. If you have Frederick and Elsie’s marriage certificate - that should give the fathers’ names.
Thanks Pat a lot,thats strange as my Auntie Daisy (Arthur,s her Father ) said she thought he had been in the army but, apparently he left with trench foot.!!!
Where can i trace his Army Records Please.
Thank you for your help.
Bristol Record Office marriage record for Isaac Laney >>
Isaac Laney, 46 yrs, widower, Dealer = Mary porter, 40 yrs, Widow.
Lived at Charles Street.
Father Isaac Laney, Farmer.
Father William Pitt, Mason.
Witnesses: John & Catherine Radford (Church witnesses as their names are on lots of certs).
On the 1911 census his age is given as 30, place of birth as Notting Hill in London and occupation Hawker. However, there is an Army Record for him under the British Army WW1 Pension Records 1914-1920 (on Ancestry) - his enlistment on 12th Oct 1914 gives his age as 30 years 150 days, place of birth as Notting Hill and occupation Hawker - suggesting that he could have been born in about June 1884.
This record also names his wife, Caroline PRESTON, gives the date and place of their marriage and the birth dates of his first two children so it is the correct Arthur MORGAN. It also says that he was discharged on the 30th Oct 1914 - so he didn't last very long in the Army!
Hi Tony, I have looked back at stuffffffffffff and found your original email response to me which said you had attatched items which unfortunately I did not recieve.
I would welcome any pics, notices ect that you have on the Sperrin family but sadly I do not have items at all that I can offer you in exchange.
If however I do come across anything in the future I will certainly let have them.
Many thanks for you assitance, it really means a lot .
John George and Jane Sperrin are my great great grandparents. Maria being the daughter of my great grandparents would be my grandaunt. The info I gave is basically what I have gleaned over 3 years from various sources. The removal order for Jane is to be found in Taunton at the Records office in the Heritage Centre, I do have a copy taken by camera from the original. I am happy to give you a copy. I have photographs of two of Maria's siblings, John George (junior) who was head postmaster in WSM in the 1920's and Thomas Zephaniah. I wonder if you have any of Maria or her family?. Any close or distant relatives photos would be great to see.
Thanks Tony, I think we have communicated before?
Are you a relation of this Sperrin family and where can I read about them??
