    Bearing in mind there were probably a few Frederick Cadbys about...
    A birth registered 1st quarter 1872 in Kings Norton (Worcestershire then) vol 6c page 470
    Marriages 3rd qu. 1894 at West Bromwich vol 6b page 1099
    and 2nd qu. 1897 at Birmingham vol 6d page 84
    A birth Frederick R Cadby 4th qu. 1910 registered Kings Norton vol 6c page 437.
    One of these might be your man or his son.

    The 1881 census has 2 Cadby families with a young Frederick in (although none tally with his age in 1915) at 70 Great Hampton Street and 1 Marston Place St. Vincent Street.

    The Frederick Cadby in Marston place (no 3 according to the original scan) is listed in 1881 as aged 9. That would fit in with the kings norton birth in 1872.Parents were Samuel (Dancing teacher)and Sarah C. He does't seem to appear in 1891 census, but in 1901 he is married to Emily with son Cedric, is a metal rolling works clerk and living in86 reservoir rd. Can send copy of scans if reqd

    Hi all,

    I've just been tying up the info in your posts, and you are 'spot on' :) Looks like it is the Frederick Cadby of parents Samuel & Sarah C. Cadby who married Emily Airey and had son Cedric.

    MikeG - Many thanks for the offer to scan, but no problem for me. I can get a copy when I go to the library tomorrow.

    JKC - I never thought of looking for Godby re 1891 census.

    Once again, thank you all....Florence :)

    Hello everyone!!

    My name is Lesley-Ann and I have been researching the Cadby family for a number of years. Cedric was my Grandfather, therefore Frederick was my Great Grandfather. I have gone back to circa. 1750 and have various copies of certificates and photographs but am unable to find a picture of either Frederick or Emily (nee. Airey), my Great Grandmother. Was wondering if anyone would be able to help at all?

    Hello there Lesley-Ann :) Welcome to the forum.

    Sorry...unable to help with the photo's of your g/grandparents Frederick & Emily Cadby. However, Frederick's sister, Blanche Maud Cadby, is my husbands grandmother, thereby making your Frederick his g/uncle. The one thing we do have is a remembrance card of him and his father Samuel. If you don't already have one, I'll be happy to send you a copy.

    We have most of the direct line ancestors copy certificates, census returns etc. Of course, you and my husband share the same ancestral line going back from Samuel and Sarah Carlyle (formerly Aplin). Maybe you can both enlarge on your family histories and help each other to fill in any missing bits.

    I do all the computer work for him. He gets too frustrated with the 'Flippin' thing!' :D

    All the best....Florence :)
