    Children of James Clarke

    I don`t seem to be able to find how many children my grandfather James Clarke b1870 in Manea, Cambridgeshire had. My grandmothers name was Mary Elizabeth Baker b1880 and was from Ramsey, Huntingdonshire.

    Happy.

    Hi Happy,

    When and where did your grandparents marry?

      I assume this is the marriage

      Marriages Mar 1901 N. Witchford 3b729

      >>Baker Mary Elizabeth
      BRIDGE Annie
      >>Clarke James
      MOSS Percy

      Children's births have maiden names included in the birth registration indexes after 1911. You can check births before that by finding Mary and James in 1911 census. This should tell you how long they have been married and also how many children of the marriage were born, how many died and how many are still living. The children living with them would be a start.

            Hi Happy,

            Did they live in Manea? Manea parish register transcripts, including baptisms 1607-1950, are available on Findmypast.com and also through Cambridgeshire Family History Society - Bookstall

              1911 census index Clarkes living in North Witchford

              don't know who is in which household because no credits to spare.

              CLARKE ARTHUR 1871 age 40

              CLARKE GEORGE 1907 age 4

              CLARKE GERTRUDE EMMA 1855 age 56

              CLARKE HELEN FLORENCE 1848 age 63

              CLARK EILLIE MAY 1906 age 5

              CLARKE JAMES 1872 age 39

              CLARKE JAMES WILLIAM 1904 age 7

              CLARKE JOHN HENRY 1908 age 3

              CLARKE MARION 1910 age 1

              CLARKE VIOLET ELIZABETH 1902 age 9

              CLARKE WILLIAM HENRY 1848 age 63

              CLARKE WINIFRED 1876 age 35

              These don't fit with your lot though. Do you know where James and Mary lived in their married lives?

                Looks like Angus Clarke (1911), Kenneth Clarke (1912), Clarice Beryl Clarke (1915), Dardenella Clarke (1917), William Henry Clarke (1920) and Arthur Ernest Clarke (1925) baptisms are available on FindMyPast. :)
                Baptised in Cambridgeshire, but I don't know which parish. Unless you have a subscription, you'd need to buy some FindMyPast credits to view the full transcripts.

                  Not sure what went wrong with census

                  but when I searched for Mary Clarke born 1880 in Ramsey, Hunts, I got this entry for 1911

                  CLARKE MARY ELIZABETHF1881 age 30 North Witchford Cambridgeshire

                  The James in the list above, age 39 was born Manea.

                  Any children born between the marriage 1901 and 1911 when mother's maiden name was added to index, should be on census with James & Mary and will probably include some of the younger Clarkes listed above in the index.

                  You can see a transcript for 10 credits but the actual image of the original form, which is where it tells you about the number of children born and how many died, costs 30 credits here:

                        I made a mistake, its not that lot although my farther is there John Henry Clarke b1908 unles that is his double. There are name of my uncles and aunts but the dates are wrong.

                            How do you mean the dates are wrong? 1911 census ages are often out by a year, depending on whether the people listed had their birthdays before or after census night.
