I have 2 names of daughters on the London 1891 census.
The first is Flora, which I know to be Florence.
The other is May. Do you think this has also been shortened and if so, what
would be the full name.
He may not have had a house number.

A SWISS GIRL: The Cambridge and Oxford examinations are open to students of
all nationalilities alike. For information respecting those of either
university write direct. If you wish to compete in the Cambridge junior
local examination held in December, you must be under seventeen. Write to
the Rev. G.P. Browne, St. Catherine's College; fee £1. For the Cambridge
senior you must be under eighteen. The Cambridge higher (local) examinations
are held in December and in June; fees, £1 and £2. An honour certificate in
this examination admits to Tripos examinations the members of Girton and
Newnham who have resided during a sufficient number of terms, provided the
student has passed in language and mathematics. If your age should exclude
you, you might go to the universities of Edingburgh, Glsacow or St. Andrews,
where no limitations are made in respect of age.
E.Mc. T. - Your sedentary life as a dressmaker does not agree with you. You
should try to take more exercise and warming food. Dress in woolen
under-clothing and rub the body well in the morning with a cloth dipped in
salt and water.
NYMPHIA ALLA - Disease or weakness of the nervous system is often,
unhappily, an inheritance from our parents. Not that they may be nervous
themselves, but that their course of life - late hours, over-taxed brain,
poor living, fast living, drink or bad constitution, etc., result, one or
more, in bequeathing a wretched inheritance of weak nerves, not positive
disease, to their children, Live genoerously, go to bed early, be much in
the open air, and take a tonic if required, and by a dorctr's advice.
B.W. complains of "taking fits of laughter into her head." Evidently, she
has apartments to let in that repository. In anty case, it is well that she
should find so much to entertain her and feel so bright and happy. This
state of things will only change too soon.

I have been wading through mountains of emails for my trouble.
My thanks to everyone who replied to my 'frame work knitter/stockinger'
enquiry. Much appreciated.
Don't want to get into the manner's side of things but wanted to highlight
a point from Maggie
It's also perhaps, that here in England where the documents are, we fail to
realise how difficult it is for our overseas connections to research. My
cousin in Australia has to wait months for films at the LDS. I wait three
weeks and my other cousin in the US gets them within days. Snip>
In Australia I have only been able to get the Bishops Transcripts of Parish
records I needed. Many records have been excluded from being copied by the
LSD Church. Another point is that I came to the list when a lot of my
research was done. I did this before CD's and sometimes just want to check
details. Some day some very lucky people are going to come on this list and
find direct connection to my SHEPHERD's (my Thomas kept changing First name
so will be hard to trace) and boy wont they be lucky! I had a researcher go
back to the 1600 in France! The connection that proved this in 1891 took me
over 20 years of happy research, lots of money, and a lovely sister in
Sheffield who got me inquest reports and who I drove mad. So what goes
around comes around.
I have found this list so helpful, thank you to all.

The man I believe to have been my g.grandfather, George JOHNSON, died age 24
on 4 Aug 1866, of phthisis, at Nottingham General Hospital. His occupation
was lace dresser, though he had formerly been a quarryman and stone cutter
in Mansfield. (However, my grandfather John's 1893 marriage certificate
gives his deceased father George's occupation as "lace maker".) In 1871,
his widow Sarah was living at 23 Exchange Court, Park, Nottingham, together
with her two sons, John (born 1864) and William (born 1865).
Unfortunately, the death certificate doesn't provide any direct link to
Sarah; he's just the only Nottingham death of a George JOHNSON between 1865
and 1871 with a similar age to that of Sarah, and a likely occupation.
Can anyone suggest a way of establishing a clearer link between them?
Can someone tell me what the full age would be in 1849 please.
I have a Charles SAXTON married in that year stating he was of full age but
I have him as being bapt in 1830. He married a Sarah SKETCHLEY who was
I also have a Joshua SAXTON who married a Elizabeth SHAW in 1882, he is
stated a being a bachelor but I think he was married in 1881 to a Ruth, that
one had the same occupation same age as the Joshua married in 1882 (occ
Fitter ). Could he have got a way with that? His marriage was by banns.
Have checked the online BDM but have not found a Ruth Saxton as yet who died
Thank you for any help

Okay, gang, I couldn't stand idly by and watch the talk about those who don't appreciate the help they receive without throwing in my story...
I was subscribed to a HOWARD surname list and offered to do GRO look-ups and certificate orders as I was going on vacation; my family and I were going on a Scandinavian cruise which was to leave from Harwich, and since we had a few days in London after the trip, I had an opportunity to go to the Family Records Centre and feed my addiction. I know how hard it can be to want data so badly, but find it hard to acquire when living so far away, so I was happy to help out.
Once I posted my message to the list I had several takers on my offer, so I dutifully took down the data and made good my promise. One gentleman, who lived in New Zealand, asked me for three certificates. I got all of them and e-mailed him that I had them in my possession so could he send me the money and I could remit his package.
To make a long story short, I got stiffed - he never responded to my e-mail, much less sent the money, in spite of several requests to him. I am stuck with three MERRIMAN certificates that mean nothing to me and am out nearly $50. I suppose part of it was my own fault - silly me told him that I found his great grandfather, who was born on such-and-such date, so I guess he figured he now had the data without having to pay for it.
On my last trip to England in April of 2002, I offered to do look-ups again, and had no problem. One lady from Australia even went to the airport to meet up with tourists so she could exchange the money so she could send me American dollars!
I wish New Zealand was close enough so that I could go knock on Mr. Merriman's door and ask him to his face why he cheated me when I tried to help him.
Whilst looking through the book "Australia's Fighting Sons of the Empire" I came across this entry and thought I would send it to the list........just in case someone was looking for him.

A few months ago I travelled for an hour and a half and took photos of a memorial placque and emailed to a lady in Scotland. To this day I still have had no word of thanks. I would still do the same for anyone as I have had a lot of help from some very kind people on this list.
It is difficult and can get very expensive to do research from Australia at times so I really appreciate all the help I have had and hope that I don't ask for too much.
Many thanks to all, Shirley Taylor, Melbourne, Australia.
Obtained some very good information from the 1901 census on line. Therefore please check my newest 'want' list for you to check. Any information on any of these names are gratefully accepted. Thanks for your time.
