John STREET; 42yrs; born Kermincham [very near to Twemlow]; butler/domestic

I'm pretty sure this is Daddy, he's listed as married, but there is no house name - it's in Twemlow, Goostrey St Luke.  The Head is Egerton Leigh married to Violet C Leigh, he's a 57 year old "Local J. P"  - could Dragon do a look-up for you, it could give you the house name ???

Wendi - I think I can answer this quicker than that!  :D

I assume your info above is from the 1901 Census?

The 1891 Census image you sent me has John, Agnes, Elsie, William and little Lucy all together in the same household at Schedule No 16 in Twemlow Green.

Well, Schedule No 17 - presumably the next property - is Twemlow Hall with the following persons ...
Egerton LEIGH; Head; Married; 47yrs; Retired from Army, J.P.; born Rostherne, Cheshire
Violet C.M. LEIGH; Wife; Married; 26yrs; born Congleton, Cheshire
Margaret C.C? LEIGH; Daughter; Single; 15yrs; born London

Margaret is the final line on the page, but it does not look like the entry continues.

Clearly Violet is not Margaret's birth mother!

Twemlow Hall is a substantial house - probably the largest in the village of Twemlow Green.

It looks like John Street was the Butler at the big house, and Agnes was the housekeeper.  They lived in a property close by to the Hall and John was "on duty" up at the Hall when the Census Officer visited their house.

Doesn't that all fit neatly eh? ;)

Cheers,
Mark

ooooH Mark,

Please tell me you mean the one born 1890  :o

Wendi  :)
Oooops - senior moment: and all my notes in front of me say 1890 in caps!  Well, it is quite late LOL!  :-[

I've modified the post to cover my shame!

What happened in the last quarter hour? Did the site have a blip?  Thought I'd lost ALL my corrections, but they appear to have gone in OK when I resubmitted it just now!  Computers - dontcha just luv 'em!
Cheers,
Mark

Hi.
I have found a detailed account of the battle of Salonica in which my Grandfather William Henry Hill was blinded and received several shrapnel wounds but survived. THE LONG, LONG TRAIL.

www.1914-1918.net

Find 'shortcuts' on the right and scroll down to Salonica.
I found it very interesting. Maybe other members would be interested too.
