    1911 census please?

    Can anyone please look for a Ben Roberts born 1910 and living in Leek, Staffordshire. As he was born pre mother's MS on the birth indexes, I'm stuck for his parent's names and birthplaces. This person died in 1978. I have a tentative birthplace for Ben of Staffordshire Moorlands but a local parish would be really good.

    Many thanks

          That's great thanks Janet. So now I have a Benjamin, with a plain Ben in between and a Bernard. The 2nd son of Ben was named Bernard but aka Ben.

                    The John Henry ROBERTS I have was born Leek (Norton) 1908 mms WOOD. I’ve had a wee look on GRO index and I see there was another born 1906 in Wolstanton (Burslem). Have we each got a different John Henry?

                      I think it’s the one from Leek. I have a marriage certificate from 1947 to Vera. It states he’s a 38 years old divorcee. His ex wife is Ethel. Who he married in 1936. So that 1908 fits. Are you related to John Henry?

                        Gosh. I had not realised he had been married and divorced. I had him married in 1949 to yet another person. Have I got that totally wrong or was the marriage to Vera a short one?

                            As with all things in my family ‘s kinda complicated LOL. My connection is John Henry’s brother Ben. My Gran was a 1st cousin once removed to Ben’s children.
                            Ben 1910-1978 married Annie Maria HALL 1910-1982. Annie’s mother was Frances (Fanny) ACKERLEY 1876-1950
                            Fanny’s big sister Mary Eliza ACKERLEY 1872-1941 married William HARRISON 1866-1924. This couple were my 2xGrandparents.
                            Although Annie and my Gran were actually cousins, they were always together and as close as sisters.
                            I know Ben and Annie’s youngest child - no prizes for guessing what his forename is! His wife Mary died 2013. They have 1 daughter who has 2 daughters and a son.

                                If you can make 5 more posts then the private messaging system will work for you if you need to tell me anything sensitive or about people that are alive or likely still alive as it’s a rule of this forum that we don’t post details of anyone who is known to be or might be still with us.
