William and Matilda Allen

down-under

Brummie from Down-Under
Hello
I go to bed after I posted my replies and come back to 3 pages, well done Shera. :) My next move was to look for a Matilda Beard marriage with the Beard from Evesham lodging with the family.

Just logged in as I saw this! I am tracing the Beard family tree. Matilda's father William is my boyfriends great-great-great grandfather :)

Shera,
our posts crossed - the merge was for the 1861 info.
How do you get all this so quick?
I am gobsmacked:sick:
I spend hours searching and you do it in minutes????!!

Anything for the Allens in 1851 :D


Hi Shera,
Think I've finally found William Allens' parents - William Allen and Harriet ?
Marriage St Leonards, bridgenorth......got it from IGI (the only one that fits area and timewise :rolleyes:)
But I can't find them on the 1841 / 1851 census'....
Can you find anything for me??

Hi Joanna,
Haven't got much further with this side yet - but have found Sarah (William's wife) Pratley's birth in Leafield, Oxfordshire off the IGI in 1808 - hope this helps!
