Thread: William Louis/Lewis Biggs and family

  1. #21
    Hi Carolyn, no I don't have an 1851 census.. this is as close as anything else I've seen.

    So he was a gardener, then a painter between 1881 and 1901 census, then a gardener again.. if this is indeed all the same family.

    Are there any other sources you know of that may have house occupants listed for the 1800's, other than the census?

    Good call on this one. I requested the death cert, and it lines up with William Lewis Biggs/Louisa Biggs.

    Unsure what Salter's Lodge is, and again, I fail at interpreting the cause of death

    Name: William Lewis Biggs
    Age: 18 months
    Record Type: Burial
    Birth Date: abt 1851
    Death Date: abt 1852
    Burial Date: 11 Aug 1852
    Burial Place: Hayes, Hillingdon, England
    Register Type: Parish Register

    birth would have been March 1851, which seems not obviously found....same time as marriage.

    I feel his first born would have his name.

    Had a couple more certs come through. For some reason I ordered the birth cert for Walter but the death cert for Ann Maria. Can't remember what my logic was, but after looking at the death cert, I think I was being a bit hopeful with my original assumptions. It looks like the occupation here is "servant"? So I don't think it's likely to be the same father (William Lewis).

    I think that Walter is a pretty good match (fathers name, mothers name, location). Just the mothers surname that has been recorded incorrectly as Aldridge (hopefully).
