Kate Wright born 1887 Mosborough - Derbyshire

Post by carolinewhitehall » Tue Feb 09, 2021 1:07 am

The parents of Kate Wright were Thomas Wright and Elizabeth Roberts Stringer (mn). Kate was born in 1887 in Mosborough, Derbyshire. I have found her living in Stone Street, Mosborough in the 1901 census. There is a Kate Wright in the 1911 census as a domestic servant aged 24 in Beighton. I think could he her. How can I find out what happened to her from 1911 onwards. Got to a sticking point.
Thank you in anticipation.

Do you have her birth certificate? Do you have her exact date of birth?

FreeBMD will give you possible marriages and you can search the 1939 England and Wales register.
Otherwise there are electoral rolls available too.

Hope that helps.
Best wishes,
Meg

[TS_welcome]

I found her birth on Ancestry - confusingly noted as male.
1901 census has her father Thomas as a coal miner.
I'm not seeing any marriage in that sort of area for her, nor any obvious death.

There is the 1939 index for England & Wales - but if she married she'd be under her married name by then. [as meg mentioned]

What else do you know about her? where does she fit in your family tree? is she a direct ancestor or an offshoot [ aunt/cousin]

Going backwards is easier than going forwards I'm afraid.

Thank you for everyone's help and Kate would be my Aunt. Thomas Wright and Elizabeth Roberts Stringer had the following children- Elizabeth A 1871, Mary 1873, Lydia 1876 and the for mentioned born in Dronfield and I have found information for Lydia and her husband and off spring, Henry 1881 born Mosborough and would be my gran dad, Fanny 1884 Mosborough, Florance J 187, Mosborough, Kate 1887 Mosborough and Annie 1894 Mosborough.

Thomas Wright and Elizabeth Roberts Wright are buried in Eckington Cemetery.

I can only think of getting a copy of a death cert to see who registered their parents deaths.

What would the 1939 register tell me? Not used this site.

Regards
Caz

I hadn't looked at the 1939 record before.

It tells you:
name, address, date of birth, gender, marital status and occupation plus the page I looked at had ARP warden and the like.

Annie Wright born 1894 - Mosborough, Derbyshire

Hi, I am looking for help on the above person who would be an Aunt of mine. Her parents would be Thomas Wright and Elizabeth Roberts Stringer.
I found her in the 1901 census and there is a marriage to Samuel F Manifield. When I opened the message on FMP it does not give the names of parents which would be helpful. Any ideas how I can find out if it is the correct records I need. I am FMP. Thank you in anticipation.

It would be helpful if you could keep everything on the one thread Caroline - Admin, can you move this one? and add it to Caroline's 'Kate Wright' thread.
[merged with Kate Wright thread - AndrewP]

I did have a look at the death of an Annie Manifield [on Ancestry] that gives her Date of Birth as 18th Nov 1893 - is that the same as you have?
Death was registered in Jan, Feb or March 1975 in Sheffield [volume 3 page 1983]

I'm not very experienced with English records, but others here are.

I think you need to get her birth certificate first so you have her exact date of birth.

Find its reference details in the GRO index at FreeBMD.
Then go to www.gro.gov.uk and you can then order a pdf certificate which at £7.50 is cheaper than ordering one by post.

Once you have that you can search for her on the 1939 Register using her date of birth. This will help to rule in/out possible marriages.

You might also want to look at which registration district she might have married in. It can be confusing in that area but FreeBMD gives that information

Happy hunting!
Best wishes,
Meg

Thanks Andrew!

Ancestry have Annie's birth record as 19 Oct 1894 St. Mark's, Mosborough, Derbyshire, England, parents Thomas and Elizabeth.

None of the marriages I can see on Ancestry seem to match up [no father Thomas as a miner]

I wonder , did she stay in the UK?
