The only Mary Fox marrying a Smith around about that date on the nottm
Marriage Index C.D. is the one below
and it doesn't look like yours or the right area.
Have pulled out some Kate Fox ones to but they are not an exact match
either. Not sure where Farnsfield is i'm afraid.
Hope they may help

Hi to both lists,
This seen on Silicon.com site today.
1901 Census comeback delayed indefinitely
No date for re-launch...
The 1901 census website is to miss its April re-launch because tests show the site is still not strong enough to cope with anticipated demand. The site had originally expected to attract 1.2 million visitors a day, eager to search for ancestors among the archived records of 32 million people living in England and Wales in 1901.
But the site crashed in January after receiving over one million hits per hour in its first two days of operation. The Public Record Office was due to unveil a revamped version this month but has now said there is no finalised date for a re-launch. The PRO has spent £1.2m on the site since development began in 1998, but has assured taxpayers they will not pay the redevelopment costs.

When one wants to know where a town or Parish is the quickest way is to
go to Genuki-Nott or whichever county you are interested in. There will be
links to information about that place.
If that doesn't work try Google.
Farnsfield is several miles NW of Southwell.
I have the 1891 Census if needed.

I'm trying to find tha marriage of Mary Ada FOX (poss. just Ada) to Peter
SMITH. All I know is that they married before 1909, and probably married in
Sutton, as that's where they both lived.
If anyone has any info on either of them I'd be really grateful.
It's rumoured that Mary Ada's sister, Kate, married Edmund SMITH, maybe
Peter's brother, but I haven't been able to find him anywhere.
Also, could someone please tell me where Farnsfield is - Derby or Notts?!
Thanks for your help

Subject: [Notts] Birth Place of WILLIAM FOSTER
> Hi all,
> I would be interested to know what others think about another mysterious
member of David's family.
> Another gg grandfather was William FOSTER. According to the 1881 census he
was born about 1851. According to his marriage certificate he was 21 when he
married on July 10th/18th 1871.
> The dilemma I have is that in 1881 his birthplace is given as Wales. I
don't believe this is correct but have so far not found him in any of the
Mansfield censuses (partly why I am so slow with all the look ups. Trying
not to miss anyone). After I had found a William Foster in Wales I thought I
had the right one even though the birth was a little out. I thought I was
allowing for the usual discrepancies that I had heard about. It was only
after help from a lady in Cardiff about the William there that I discovered
that there was a Walesby near Mansfield. Today I learned of the one in

copies to see what is there. Have recently had a kind person who looked for
a member of my family. In my case this persons place of birth was shown as
Brede in Suffolk. In theory it seemed to be a case of putting in the wrong
county but in actual fact he was born in Beccles Suffolk (I have baptismal
info to confirm it).

fiche copy at my local Family History Centre is typewritten as Wales. Can
anyone point me in the right direction for the handwritten version

A branch of the Pilmore family moved into Nottinghamshire after 1881. The GRO records various births and deaths connected to this family in the Basford Registration District which covers the period of the 1891 Census.
Would SKS be able to do a lookup in either a census surname index, if one exists, or indeed provide transcripts of the Pilmore entries from the census itself for the Basford RD in 1891.
It would be nice to find someone on the list who is related to this family. I note that there seems to be a fair number of Pilmores throughout Nottinghamshire. Oh, yes, the family concerned is descended from my gggg grandparents.
Looking for the marriage record of Samuel Harris and Hannah Hall on the
Family search site, I found the marriage recorded in both Everton and Ordsall
on 6 March 1815. Looking at a map they do not seem to be very close. How do
I find out which is the right entry?
Could somebody check the parish registers for me?
Thanks in advance

A couple of brilliant finds & explanations, I just wish i could pin the
happy couple down for sure after receiving a dozen (at least) answers, some
the same its sad to say I'm no wiser, Holmes is too popular a name i guess.
Thank you very much for your time, all the way across the big pond too, much
luck in your own research, Regards Dorrie in Devon
Thanks for the update. I recently checked the census site and it's got this
big banner saying, "Sorry, the 1901 census website is currently being
tested". Ha, at this rate, the 1911 census will be out first!!
I signed the petition that went through a few weeks ago but has anyone heard
if it hit the targeted 300,000 names? I'd be interested to hear what
happens when that's presented to the MP's. I'm counting on those in Britain
to raise enough of a stink with their local MP's, as there's no voice for
us "forriners", LOL.

I have come across some very interesting information regarding a source of
immense value to anyone researching the LIDDLE name, Police Constable 263
William R LIDDLE, who was stationed at Nottingham City Police between 1947
Contact me for further details,
Am seeking descendents of Robert Lawrence PHILLIPS, born Eastwood, Notts 1870, or any descendents of this family:
Living at Gilt Hill, Kimberley in 1881; Parents Herbert and Frances PHILLIPS.
Siblings: Walter Hugh, Henry Clarence, George Frederick, Maude (married ROWLEY), Charles Algernon.
After death of his father, Herbert PHILLIPS, 12 May 1904 Robert Lawrence PHILLIPS inherited a library of books and was to act as agent should any property be outstanding in Rhodesia, India, South Africa.
He would have been my step-grand-uncle and I'm trying to find out if I have any step-second-cousins or removed once or twice who might have some information on the family!
