I am hoping there is someone out there who can do a lookup in the 1891 census
for me. The name is HERBERT JOSEPH PICK. The address should be Ashbourne
Grove, 1, Tissington Villa, Camberwell. He was married to Ellen, and there were
several children. If he is not at that address he might be at Rose Bank, 87
Station Road, Chingford. His wife there would be Emma. As you can see, I have a
mystery on my hands, and I really hope there is someone who can help me
This past summer we visited Horley, England and we walked down Massett
Road. Can anyone tell us how the road got this name?
The name Massett is one of my wife's family ancestral names and we have
never seen it before in any country. Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you. Dennis
My name is Arthur CHITTENDEN and I am
working on a one-name study - worldwide.
Any information, no matter how brief, will

I shall be happy to assist other CHITTENDEN

putting them in contact with other researchers
of our name.
Best Wishes Arthur

Could SKS please help me out with a look up of the 1851 census for
Brixton/Norwood - HO107/1575/555.
I'm trying get details on JOHN MEAGER's family and household - particularly
Many thanks in advance -
This is my first visit to your list.
I am researching the names of
The last address I have is Ashbourne Grove, 1, Tissington Villa, Camberwell
in 1882. His full name was HERBERT JOSEPH PICK, married to ELLEN PICK
[formerly HOBSON] They had at least 4 children, but the marriage ended, and he
later set up home with EMMA ?. They had possible 4 children- SIBILLE , HERBERT,
MARGERY, and CARL. If anyone has any information on this family I would be very
,Can anyone on the list tell me if there is any way of checking if a couple
were divorced back around 1895. Sorry if this is off topic, but I don't know
who to ask.
The discussion on Blackfriars has been interesting to me as I have LEFORT
family who were barge builders in this area. I have the will of Edward
LEFORT who gives his address in 1818 as John St, Christ Church, Surrey, and
his eldest son Charles James was baptised at St Mary Lambeth in 1769.
However, the next three children are baptised at St Luke, Chelsea, which in
my understanding is on the other side of the river? Their mother was
baptised and married at St Martin in the Fields, so it doesn't seem to be
her parish. Apart from their moving house across the river and back, can
anyone suggest a reason they would have had the children christened at this

I'm searching for NICHOLSON and VENNER from the Southwark/Lambeth/Kennington areas. I have a copy birth-certificate for my father-in-law, Charles Edward NICHOLSON (17.1.1908) - parents: CHARLES HERBERT NICHOLSON and SELINA VENNER. I've drawn a blank with the 1901 census. They are listed as living at 10 Charteris Road, but the writing is very indistinct and it could be Chattens Road. Again, I've drawn a blank.
Any help would be very welcome.
I am hoping some one has the 1851 Census for Lambeth, Surrey and can look up a George and Hannah (nee Lamont) Shinn and there daughters for me:
They had at least 5 children:
Martha Byworth Shinn Chr 1822
Hannah Shinn b 1 Jan 1830
Margaret Shinn b 10 Aug 1832
Elizabeth Shinn Chr 1836
MARY ANN LAMONT SHINN b 17 Dec 1837 York Road Hospital, Lambeth
Has anyone got a Julia Sarah HOOK born c1866 in Lambeth in their family,
cannot find her on the 1881 census, she married in 1889 in Southwark to
James Joseph C. KING, they had 3 known children: James Robert KING 1893,
Harriet Matilda Eliza KING 1895 and Miriam Alice KING 1900, all born
Lambeth, husband died in 1902, and Julia believed remarried in 1904.
A plea from Australia.
If anyone has access to the 1841 census for the Wandsworth area, could they please do a look up for me?
My great grandfather James Henry Dale was born at 1 Ebenezer Place, Wandsworth in November 1842. I know his parents were James & Sarah, (his occupation was Butcher), but I'm not sure whether James was their firstborn or not, so would like to know if they were living there in 1841, and who was with them, if anybody.
Blackfriars is now in the London area, it is on the north side of the
river Thames, it also has the Blackfriars Underground Station. Blackfriars
is not a very big place compared with other places. As far as old
buildings before the 1900s, they are now being used as offices, News Paper
ware houses, very few people live in Blackfriars, Fleet Street area today.
I worked for 16 years in the lovely Unilever building, on the embankment
over looking the River Thames.
The local Inn is of course "The Blackfriar", you can walk to Fleet Street,
where there is
St. Brides Church, very popular for Marriages especially in the
1700/1800s, also the News Paper buildings are there, not forgetting the
famous Inn "Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese" where they have saw dust on the
floor. Dr. Johnson lived up one of the small alley's off Fleet Street.
The Old Bailey, Ludgate Hill where St. Paul's Cathedral is located is just
a short walk way.
There are the world famous Law Courts in the Stand which connects with
Fleet Street. Oranges and Lemons say the bells of St. Clements Church in
A wonderful place full of history, I was not interested in genealogy when
working at Blackfriars, I now wish I was.
