Hi I have just started researching my family tree. My family name was SMALLWOOD. Both my parents are deceased but were named JOHN (known to all as Jack) and my mum JOAN. We lived in Camden Town London. My father used to go to the St Pancras Boys Boxing Club. Would love to know if anyone knows my family
Hi there, I'm looking for any details about a 'Lawyer' George Humphrys who was living in Red Lion Square in London Middlesex in 1871. He had two sons that I know of, Josiah and George. I want to know if there are any connections with William Humphrys of Ballyhaise House, in County Cavan Ireland and this George Humphrys?
Researching Samuel Radmore Clampit - carpenter- married twice -1st Maryanne Scammell and second Eleanor Amelia Hogwood I am unable to find his death. He was my husband's grandfather I have run out of ideas can you please help
Not a good idea to omit dates and locations and sources etcetera.
He isn't the only oddity with these folk, there are several discrepancies in the records, and also, there is no death record for his possible sons Samuel and James.
The UK General register Office BMD registers do contain many errors, and quite a few of them seem to apply to these folk.
I'm also wondering if you are chasing the correct target.
Your guy is the 1852 Devon born carpenter, but could it be that it's his son who is
your husband's grandfather.
Scammell should be spelled Scannell.
Samuel Radmore Clampit b 1852 Jan/Feb/March Birth registered Newton Abbott in Devon
1881 census says he was born in nearby Teignmouth in Devon
He was indeed a carpenter and was the only person born with Radmore in his name
SCANNELL, Mary Anne & CLAMPIT, Samuel Radmore m 1874 Kensington
In the last quarter of 1880 they have a son called Samuel born in Fulham
In the 1911 census a single man called Samuel Radmore Clampit is listed in
Fulham living as a lodger, he is a telephonist and is listed as 34 year old and
born in 1877, presumably he is really the son born in 1880 and he seems
to be using Radmore although his birth was registered only as Samuel.
1881 census Fulham wife is Annie b 1851
1881 census says she was born in Somersetshire
1891 census Fulham wife is Mary Ann b 1853
1891 census says she was born in Midsome Norton in Somersetshire
No such births registered, the nearest match is a birth in Whitechapel in 1851
Death CLAMPIT Mary Ann London, Fulham July/August/September 1891
aged 40 = a birth year of circa 1851
HOGWOOD, Eleanor Amelia & Samuel the carpenter m 1897 Kensington
1901 census Fulham says wife = Eleanor a cook aged 28 born in 1873
in Bermondsey London, actually it was July/August/September 1872.
Neither the parents nor their 3 children in the 1901 census reappear in the
The 2 daughters in the 1901 census...both die in Southwark in 1814 and 1915.
Amelia A. b 1898 Mary E. b 1900
There is also a son James, no death record for him.
Eleanor dies in Lambeth in 1945.
I think that Samuel the 1880 Fulham son married in 1912 in Wandsworth
as Samuel R. Clampit to Florence E. Rook
No children's births registered to that marriage.
I have an idea when she was born and died but there is an additional
anomaly,with another similarly named, and probably unrelated person,
but which is nevertheless bizarre.
Eileen Florence Clampit died on 28th December 1999 and was cremated
on 11th January 2000 in Islington Crematorium, BUT, there is no death
registration listed, although there must have been a death registration, or
else the cremation would not have been permitted to proceed.
My guess is that if you find some of these graves, you might also find
some of the missing people there.
GRO registration errors could be the cause of the problem, but perhaps
they died in London air raids and were identified.
You didn't say when your husband was born, so we don't know when his
father was last definitely alive.
Who is Gary Bays. ?
Sorry about this crazy formatting, it wasn't my doing.
I have traced my paternal family back to their roots (my great-great-great grandfather) in Switzerland (Village of Waldkirch in Canton St Gallen) and forward to the families arrival in England (London) in the mid-late 1800's. My great-grandfather (Sebastian Studerus) was one of 11 children, of which he and 2 of his brothers (John Nepomute Studerus & Joseph Colestin Studerus) travelled to England. My great-grandfather's decendants tree is complete, but now I am trying to find out more of my links with the English families of his two brothers. I would like to hear from anyone who has the surname Studerus in their family tree that can be linked with these brothers.
