Please, can someone look up on 1891 and 1901 census please

Have just checked on the the 1881 census- and George was born in Coventry, so I think the above could be the right family.  O0


I will have another look in the morning- but so far it looks like they don't want to be found in 1891!

You may already have these- This is the family:
George James H Quincey married Elizabeth Weston in 1884 Aston (6d 386)
Daughter Gertrude Ethek Quincey born 1886 Aston
Daughter Florence Quincey - could not find birth in 1887/8
Son Harry Ernest Quincey born 1889 Aston 6d 227
Son John Thomas Quincey born 1895 Aston 6d 245

Judging by the children's births they were definately in Aston in 1891- but where!! ???

Hopefully we'll have better luck tomorrow. :flower:


Born a Brummie
Many, many thanks Nell. Yes they look like the family I am looking for and I think there maybe more children tucked away somewhere!!!!!

Is there an address too please?

I know that Gertrude lived at 143 Green Lane Small Heath after her marriage to James Henry Bott in 1910 and I am led to believe that she ran some kind of clothing shop, maybe a secondhand one?

Many thanks again for your time :)


Hello Rowan,

Had another quick look today and still can't find them in 1891  :(- but will let you know if I do.

Their address in 1901 was 4 Nelson Villas, Deakins Lane, Haymills, Yardley, Worcestershire

:bounce: Oh, just thought, do you have an address from Gertrudes birth certificate- maybe I could check if they're still at that same address in 1891. I think it is likely that their names have been mistranscibed in 1891- very frustrating!

Born a Brummie
I've found Florence Lucy E b.Sept. 1888.

I feel sure it is the Florence that is on the census'

Also I think I have found other children that were born and died.

Thanks again to both Nell and Chris for their help :smitten:
