I have listed below the information I currently have on the WILDBORE family,
Ernest, son of Gershom WILDBORE married Gertrude Ellen MENZIES,
granddaughter of John MENZIES who was also my Gt gt grandfather. I have
sent this information to the Derbysgen and Lincolnshire rootsweb lists
already but as quite a lot of the family were born or lived in
Nottinghamshire I am hoping the following might link in with other families
on the list - apologies if you receive it more than once.
In 1881 the WILDBORE family were living at
10 Goodhead Street, Nottingham St Mary
Gershom WILDBORE married aged 30 Railway Engine Driver b Epperstone, Notts
Harriett wife aged 28 b Burton on the Wold Leicester
Sarah A daughter aged 4 b Sneinton? Notts
George W son aged 3 b Nottingham

Florence daughter aged 9 Scholar b Nottingham
Arthur son aged 8 Scholar b Nottingham

37 Moore Street, Derby
Gershom is now 50 and still a Railway Engine Driver
Harriet is now 48
Ernest is now 21, a Town Postman * William Moss Menzies was also working for
the Post Office so I think this how Ernest and Gertrude met.
Florence is 19 and a Dressmaker
Frank is 16 and a Surveyors Clerk
Albert is 13 and a Scholar
Henry is 11 and a Scholar
And two more children - Ethel daughter aged 9 b Derby
Mabel daughter aged 7 b Derby
With so many children I hope that someone else may have one of these on
their family tree too!
Ernest married in Derby in the December Quarter of 1903 to Gertrude Ellen
MENZIES born Derby, daughter of William Moss MENZIES of Newark,
Nottinghamshire and Ellen nee MITTON. They had at least one child, Albert,
born 27th January 1906. William Moss MENZIES was the second son of my gt gt
grandfather John MENZIES who had an older son, Andrew, who was my gt

Mary J daughter aged 1 b Epperstone
Emily is working in a family called ASHFORTH in St Mary Nottingham aged 16 b
Gershom is in Lincoln - hence my posting to this list
St Peter at Gowts Lincoln
Home of the PERCIVAL family 136 High Street
Gershom WILDBORE unmarried aged 21 Boarder Engine Cleaner b Epperstone
I believe Mary Ann WILDBORE married Elisha WARD and in 1871 they are at
Model Place Walker Street Snenton Nottinghamshire
Elisah WARD married aged 28 Railway Servant b Lowdham Notts
Mary A wife aged 26 Seamstress b Epperstone
In 1891 the couple were at 13 Kensington Terrace Nottinghams St Mary
Elisha WARD married aged 48 Smith b Lowdham Notts
Mary A wife aged 47 b Epperstone
Mary J WILDBORE niece unmarried Pattern girl b Epperstone see below *
In 1881 William had died and Ann is shown in Epperstone as a widow aged 63 b
Epperstone. Her occupation is given as Seamstress and she also has two
Boarders living with her.
I haven't traced Louisa yet but by 1881 Charles has moved to Lincolnshire:
Honey Pot Lane, North Witham, Lincolnshire
Charles WILDBORE married aged 34 Game Keeper b Epperstone
Elizabeth wife aged 31 Laundress b Guisthorpe
Margaret daughter aged 11 Scholar b Epperstone
Emily is still in domestic service, at Derby Terrace, Standard Hill,
Nottingham and she has been joined by her younger sister Fanny. Obviously
the family they worked for treated them well because they are still there in
1891 and 1901.
De LASCELLE family? Derby Terrace Standard Hill Nottingham
Emily WILDBORE unmarried aged 26 Cook b Epperstone
Fanny E WILDBORE unmarried aged 16 Domestic Servant Housemaid b Epperstone
Frederick is also working away from home in 1881, at the Lunatic Asylum for
the County of Nottingham at Sneinton - Frederick WILDBORE unmarried aged 23
Domestic Servant Attendant on the Insane b Epperstone.
He continued to remain employed at the Asylum - 1891 he is living at 8
Leighton Street, Sneinton, Notts aged 33 with wife Sarah A aged 31 born
Derbyshire Shirebrook and children Emily 6 and Henry 5 both born
Nottinghamshire. In the 1901 census he is at 3 Woodhouse Street Nottingham,
aged 43, wife Sarah A is 41 and they now have three children, Emily aged 16
Dressmaker, Henry aged 15 Light Porter and Doris M aged 7 Scholar.
I can't find either George or his wife Emma on the 1881 or 1891 census but
their son Henry E is living with Gershom in 1881 . Where Mary J * (their
daughter) is in 1881 I don't know but she is, I believe, the Mary J WILDBORE
shown as niece to Mary A (nee Wildbore) and Elisha WARD on the 1891 census
Anyone recognize these?

Good Morning List from a dark and damp Philadelphia:
First let me say Thank You to the all on
the Lists that were a big help in finding new information on the Branson and
Ackroyd Families in the Radford Area.
Now another favor if possible?
A marriage look up for the listing of Joseph BRANSON and Sarah
Ann ACKROYD that was listed as taken place in Radford, St. Peter on 19 January
We believe Joseph's parents are Thomas and Sarah
But who are Sarah's?????
Thanks again in advance Gene Blood in Philly Eagles 19,
Hi I wonder if anyone can help.
I am trying to find information on my Gt Gt Gt Grandfather, Philemon
Harrison. (Sometimes spelt Philmore) He was born to John & Sarah Harrison in 1812 in
Ockbrook. I know he married Mary Brown and they had at least 6 children,
but I would love to find out if Philemon had any brothers & sisters himself, or
indeed any information on him.
I have found him on the 1851 census living with Mary and children at Ashburn
Road, Derby (St Werburgh).
I also think I have found his death certificate , dying in Cheltenham but
not sure about this.
I know this is a long shot, but any information would be great, as i seem to
have hit the proverbial 'brickwall' with Philemon.#
I believe in 1871 Mary A PARKER (61 Nottingham) can be
found, along with husband Francis (61 Cheddleton Staffs)
Licenced Hawker, granddaughter Ellen (9), Son-in-Law Michael
HOLT (21), Daughter Eliza (19)and a servant John SWIFT at 9
Sill or Gill? Street, Shelton, Henley, Stoke Upon Trent.
RG10/2868 sched 36.
Granddaughter Ellen has the surname PARKER & was born in
I can forward a copy.
Hope this helps.
Regards John Carter
If anyone has any knowledge or come across the following I would be pleased to hear from them:-
Mary PARKER (1851 census she is age 43 and born in Nottingham)
Bethia PARKER (1851 Census she is age 15 born Nottingham)
In 1861 census Mary is shown as aged 49 years and her daughter (now presumably married - Bethia SCANLON ( aged 25 years.)
I think Bethia had a daughter ELLEN born around 1852 but I can find no trace of either BETHIA or ELLEN on the IGI or Free BMD.
Grateful for any assistance please.

Good Morning List from a Bright and Sunny Philadelphia:
Looking for some input and help on the following surnames
mainly from the area of Radford early 1800's or so.
William Bronson( akaBranson) born 8 March 1771 Leicester
married 27 November 1834 Radford, a Mary Falkenbridge (aka Falconbridge) born
In the 1880 census of Philadelphia we have a Joseph BRANSON
living in the Germantown Section of the city (well off). Joseph is age 39 with a
wfe Sarah Ann ACKROID (aka ACKROYD) age 38 with a son Joseph Jr age 18 all
three born England and second son Thomas age 7 born in Pa. also in the
household is a Joseph FALCONBRIDGE age 40 born England.
Joseph Faconbridge was the physical 'nuts and bolts' engineer that I believe
helped Joseph Branson set up mills. My info on Joseph Branson tells me that
he was a programmer of patterns and stiches in the knitting mill. This was a
skill that he passed down to Joseph Ackroyd Branson and Thomas Branson.
Joseph Ackroyd Branson started mills in the Green Bay area and in the
Appleton Michagin area.
Joseph Branson had a brother named NOAH who stayed in England.
Information shows a Joseph Branson being married to a Sarah Ann ACKROYD on
19 January 1862 in St. Peter in Radford that would fit with son Joseph being
born 1862 in England? But Where???
Adding to the mix is William Branson being married to a Miriam CHOULERTON on
23 September 1838 also in St. Peter, Radford.
My own Bransons are married to the Bloods in Ruddington and everyone ends up
in Philadelphia to set up mills in the textiles sector.
Thanks in advance Gene Blood in Phila Go eagles

South African medal with 5 clasps.Muster rolls at Kew only go up to 1888, and
the regimental archives require Birth certs etc. I think he would have been
in the 1899-1902 Boer War, please can anyone suggest something, Thanks Colin
