Hi All,I've drawn a blank and I'm hoping some of you may be able to offer advice on what to do next:My GG Grandmother - Ada Ginnever was born in Byron Street, Sneinton, Nottingham in 1864. On her birth certificate, her parents are listed as George Ginnever and Sarah Ginnever, formerly Buttery. The father's profession is Whitesmith. The mother's signature is 'X" The 'original' certified copy that I have is dated 16th February 1880.Ada's marriage certificate on 1st June 1884 lists her father's name as Frank Ginnever (decd) with the Profession 'Grocer'.I have been able to find Ada Ginnever (as a child) in 1871 where she is listed as 'visitor' at a friend's house: 19 Northumberland Terrace in St Ann's, Nottingham. I cannot find a record of any other Ginnevers that fit my description/area. I have found an 1871 census record for a Sarah Buttery, a lodger and widow aged 52 (if this is the correct Sarah it would mean she was 45ish when she had Ada, which isn't totally out of the question). I can't really read the street name but I think it is 2 Jabnow Lane, York St, in St Ann's Nottingham. I have been unable to find any other census records for Sarah Ginnever in 1881, if I presume she was still alive at the time of her daughter's wedding. Was it common for widows to revert to their maiden names or perhaps this is another clue that Ada's parents never actually married?? I can find no record of a marriage between Sarah Buttery/George (or Frank) Ginnever. Family rumor has it (through my 85 year old father who knew Great Granny Ada - I knew her too, she lived to be 102!) that the Buttery family were farmers and that my dad remembers her saying that if the money had gone the right way my Dad would have had his own farm. He thought he remembered something about Lincolnshire too but I can't find any records there either...although there are quite a few Buttery's in Lincolnshire.Do any of you have any advice or ideas of what I might try next or could this be the end of the line? The frustrating part for me is that Ada's Birth Certificate was the start of all of my research some 20 years ago. I've managed to go back on both sides of my family to the 1780's...but the Ginnever/Buttery line hasn't moved at all!Thanks,Jacqui Frohman
I am researching the descendants of George and Caroline Nelson of
Lambley 1834-1916. Their daughter Mary married Samuel Wm. PARR, and
had a son who died in France in World War I. But they had other
sons and daughters who lived in the Lambley area or near
Derby. Surnames would be Parr, Healey, Riggott and Shaw. If you
are related and would reply, or if anyone can refer me to a
descendant with an email address, I would be appreciative!
