In my quest to find the death of one of my ancestors I came across an item in the Hull Times on 15th June 1895 expressing concern at the number of persons reported to Hull Police as missing during the previous two months. While my ancestor was not amongst those listed, the following people were and might be of interest to someone:-
James Drysdale Davidson
Mrs Peaney (wife of Joseph)
Henry Hartley Snowden
Mary Jane Hocklers
Patrick George Little
If anybody is interested in any of the above I can provide a little more detail.
Hi every one.
Still trying to find the lineage of Hannah Monsforth who married William Race at Whitby 29/1/1786.
It is possible that she may have been born at Cloughton father John as there are a number of Monsforths/Mainsforths from that area.
Any help re her birth etc would be fantastic.
I thought I would try and look for my great grandmother in the 1911 Census but
am not having any luck so wondered if anyone out there has any suggestions!
I know a lot about her previous to this up to the 1901 Census when she was still
living with my great grandfather and her two small children. After that I know
that she living apart from the family, for whatever reason, at a farm in
Arthington near Leeds. As far as I know she was there up until the end of WWI
as my grandfather talked about going to see his Mother when he got back from
France and I have a photograph of her taken with a young girl at the farm.
My great grandmother was Louisa Burgess (formerly Castell) born in Dunnington
1875. She was living/working at Mill Farm, Arthington Leeds West Yorkshire
sometime after 1901 until at least 1918. Before this the family lived at Gate
Helmsley Nr York and this is where she is on 1901 census with husband Joseph
Burgess and children Elsie and James. She died in 1935 back at Gate Helmsley.
I have done a search on 1911 census and cannot find her by doing a name search.
Joseph Burgess is at Gate Helmsley. I have not looked at either the original or
the transcript. I have not looked at the residence of Mill Farm, Arthington
I wondered if anyone could have a look for me please? or suggest what I do
next? I would love to be able to piece in a bit more of her life

And my Mum used to tell us of having to go and knock on people's doors to tell them that a loved one had been killed.
She was in the ARP as well, in Marfleet.
Thank you so much for sending this link. My dad was in the ARP and went
into Hull after a day's work in the shipyard in Beverley to dig people out
of bombed buildings.
With best wishes
