I am new to the list and I have just learned that my great grandmother Emily
MOORE daughter of James MOORE was born in Clapham, SURREY 03 FEB 1849. I am
wondering if someone would be so kind as to do a look up for me in the
1851-1861-1871 Census For this area. This is the info I have with regards
to her family.
Father James MOORE
Son Robert b. 1831 born Merton
Daughter Esther b. 1833
Son Charles b. 1839 born Mitcham Parish
Son William b. 1841 Born Mitcham Parish
Daughter Kitty b. 1844
Daughter Emily b. ?03 FEB 1849
I would like to know the birthdates of the children and also the name of the
mother and hopefully her maiden name. I know that Emily married Henry LAWES
of Hurstbourne Priors November 26, 1871 in Andover, Hampshire. They then
went to Ontario, Canada. I also know that one of the sisters must have
married a name with the last name GREENER as the son who was Henry Greener
was living with them in Ontario. I am assuming it must have been Esther who
married the man Greener.
If any one can be of help I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in
Can anyone help with census lookups for 1851, 1861, 1871 for the
children of this James WEBB? I do know that the John mentioned was
born in High Wycombe, Bucks but need to know where the others were
born. The girls might have married and not be listed under WEBB, but
perhaps George WEBB and the young James might be there. Here is what
I have for 1841:
In the 1841 Census, James WEBB was located in Send Grove, Send, with his
wife, Ann, and their children: Sarah (20), John (15), George (12),
Sophia (9) and James (10 months).
I got mine from TWR computing web site www.twrcomputing.co.uk fabulous
service here in NZ within a week cost me thirty pounds all done by email
I have found alot of Suffolk family on it but its a bit spare on other
counties Yorkshire , Kent ect

There have been some questions about the NBI. This set of 2 CDs was
issued by the FFHS (Federation of Family History Societies) earlier this
year. The first edition of the NBI includes well over 5.4 million records
from more than 4,400 parish, non-conformist and cemetery burial registers.
These entries come from different types of sources, for example, parish
registers, bishop's transcripts, earlier transcripts or printed registers.
Details, including coverage by county, and purchase details, are given on
http://www.ffhs.org.uk/General/Projects/NBI.htm . It is probable that your
FHS also sells it, maybe at a discount from the full price of £30. Support
them ! Family History Societies are listed at
There was a comment on this list that there were no early records. Like the
coverage by area, the coverage by date is variable from county to county and
some certainly go back to the earliest parish registers.
For those who bought it some while back, you can download free of charge an
upgrade file containing the new version of the NBI viewer program and its
support files. The download page is linked from the main one.
The license agreement does not permit publishing of the data, which includes
responding on a list to a look-up request, so, please, don't do so!

A trick some one sent to me and has saved me embarrsment twice. Maybe helpful for list.
To avoid spreading computer viruses, create a contact in your email address book with the name !0000 with no email address in the details. This contact will then show up as your first contact. If a virus attempts to do a "send all" on your contact list, it will fail on an error no harm done and you get a warning.
Have been told of a virus that sends only to email addresses and therefore bypass the last trick, to get a warning make a 2nd entry with the name !0001 and a email address of just.sent(a)virus.com comes back post haste failed and gives you your warning. :-)

If you are a member of West Surrey Family History Society the NBI costs £23!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As most of my family were in West Surrey, Lincolnshire or Yorkshire all of which are well covered I thought it was excellent value.
Web Page: http://www.geocities.com/saelwick/index.htm
The NBI Records are 2 CDs which contain some Burial giving Age, Date
and place of Death. The are no 1600s or 1700s or 1900s the
information is very limited, it depends on what information the Family
History Societies have given to the NBI.
Hampshire would not give any information for the NBI, if anyone was
going to make a profit by producing CDs Hampshire wants the profit. My
MALLYON ancestors from Kent and London none of them were listed, a 3 x
great grandfather who went from London to live with his son in Leeds,
West Yorkshire was the only MALLYON of my family listed.
The NBI was very expensive for 2 CDs with limited information at the
price of £27.00 when purchased from the Federation of Family History
Basingstoke, Hants, UK
Just making enquiries of anybody researching the subject
name and has information of Mary WALKER, who gave birth to a Son, James, at
Jim, in Queensland, Australia.
Could somebody with the NBI please do a lookup for NOTTINGHAM in Lambeth please. Thanks very much.

I know in Redhill there was an Asylum not a mile from where I lived. It was
called the The Royal Earlswood Hospital know as the Asylum for Idiots..
decribed on old maps as 'Remedial care and education of the feeble minded..
The Hospital was built at the end of Princess Road Earlswood, not far from
There was also the Royal Asylum of St. Anns I believe was for educating and
clothing children who parents had become reduced in circumstances.. This
is in Redhill, in an area that came under Reigate Foreign... But I am not
sure what year it was built...
Maybe RG10 830 or 831 Reigate Foreign...

Subject: 1891 census lookup, Lambeth
Good Morning All,
Early last week I sent a request regarding the above subject, as yet
I have received no replies but, I also have experience a complete hard
drive crash so might have easily missed the answer. I am at somewhat of
an impass as to this address because the Marriage Cert in question says
"Lambeth in the County of London", the LDS Place Search Site says
"Lambeth, Surrey", should there be the slightest chance I may have made
a mistake with the routing of this request I would very much appreciate
guidance on this issue.
My request is as follows:-
1891 Census, Lambeth for the 1893 Marriage Cert. address
48 Portland Place, Clapham Road
I would be very interested in who was living at this address in 1891 in
particular if there is any sign of a PERKINS or OXENHAM in residence at
My most sincere thanks and good luck to all.
Richard of Abbotsford
