UPDATE: A postcard sent from Italy in 1910 to Henry LONGLEY in Tunbridge Wells and a link to a Vice-Admiral

Update: Last weekend I received a lovey email from a direct descendant of Henry LONGLEY whose mother had  come across my original blog post whilst browsing/searching the internet for family information.

Henry LONGLEY was her Great Grandfather and she was thrilled to read about the old postcard I had found and researched – the postcard has now been sent on to her and her family for their own archives.

They also very kindly shared three beautiful old family photographs with me of Henry LONGELY and his family that Paul has very kindly given me permission to include in this update of my original blog post:

This is a photograph of the christening of Paul’s grandfather Joseph A D  LONGLEY born in 1904 – Henry LONGLEY born in 1833 is to the far right and his great grandfather John (Jack)  A D LONGLEY born in 1873 is the younger man in the middle. The ladies are Jack’s wife Sara and two maiden aunts.

LONGELY J A D

John Arthur Dick LONGLEY born 1873 – son of Henry and Susannah LONGLEY

A great outcome and many thanks to Paul and his family – I am so pleased to have found, researched and reunited this fascinating old postcard.

Paul also sent me this article from the Guardian newspaper that mentions Vice-Admiral Eric LONGLEY-COOK and his warning to Whitehall about Russia and US in the Cold War – the link is US was set to bomb Russia first….

Sorting through some old postcards today I found this card sent from Rome in Italy in 1910 to Henry LONGLEY at Tower House in Tunbridge Wells in Kent – in these strange days of Coronavirus this postcard struck a chord with me as so so many people across the world are unable to travel at this time and very few postcards will be sent home to relatives and friends.

LONGLEY postcard front

What could I discover about the LONGLEY family and the sender of the postcard his loving Grandson Eric W L COOK?

LONGLEY postcard reverse

I was quickly able to find the 1911 census record as below which showed Henry LONGLEY as Father in  Law and a Widower aged 78 living at Tower House in Tunbridge Wells in Kent with his Son in law Herbert William COOK aged 40, his daughter Alice Gertrude COOK nee LONGLEY aged 42 and their children Eric William Longley COOK (the sender of the postcard) aged 12, Enid Margaret COOK aged 9 and Laurence Herbert COOK aged 1.

Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 4046; Schedule Number: 319 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1911 England Census

Herbert William COOK’s occupation is shown as a Director of Education for the County Council – had his son Eric been on a school trip in 1910 when he sent the postcard as he would only have been aged 11 years?

The LONGLEY family originated from Henfield in Sussex and Henry LONGLEY had married Susannah Margaret DICK in the Chelsea Registration District in 1865 – they then had the following children including:

Susan Mary LONGLEY in 1867, Alice Gertrude LONGLEY in 1868, Lucy Margaret LONGLEY in 1870, John Arthur D LONGLEY in 1873, Frank Ernest LONGLEY in 1880 – the 1881 census record shows Henry LONGELY’s occupation as a Draper and Farmer of 28 acres employing 34 hands in Henfield in Sussex.

Then I made an amazing discovery when researching Eric William Longley COOK further – he was born on 6th October 1898 and died on 20th April 1983 and he had a Naval career as shown on Wikipedia and became a Vice-Admiral as per the information here Eric Longley-Cook

On another website I have been able to find a photograph of Eric and further information about his Naval career during World War 2 at this link Eric Longley-Cook

Eric married Helga M LOWLES in the September quarter of 1920 in the Windsor Registration District and I will now investigate further to see if he had children.

As I always say to people you need very little information to get your family research started as this postcard very well proves!

My next mission is to try and reunite this lovely old postcard with a family member for their family archive – so if you have a connection please send me a message or email as I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks

Are you connected to the COWLISHAW or CUTTS families from Sheffield?

This recent old photographic postcard find was postally unused although it had a name and address on the back – the photograph shows what could be a father. mother and possibly their three daughters standing in their garden – could I discover more?

COWLISHAW Photo front

The postcard was addressed to a Mr & Mrs COWLISHAW at 257 City Road in Sheffield and written at the bottom was ‘from Tom & Lizzie to Tom & Harriet’ – could it be a family member sending a photograph to another family member possibly?

COWLISHAW Photo reverse

I quickly found the COWLISHAW family on the 1911 census, as below, living at 257 City Road in Sheffield and the family members were Thomas Henry COWLISHAW aged 55, his wife Harriet aged 49 and children Elizabeth aged 27, Albert aged 21, Cyril aged 19, John aged 16, Harold aged 12, Frank aged 9 and Edna aged – could the daughter Elizabeth be the sender of the postcard?

COWLISHAW 1911 Census

Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 27904 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1911 England Census

However I quickly found that this Elizabeth COWLISHAW never married and died aged 75 in 1959 so it could not be her.

Thomas Henry COWLISHAW married Harriet CUTTS in the April quarter of 1882 in the Sheffield Registration District in Yorkshire.

Harriet CUTTS was the daughter  of Thomas and Elizabeth CUTTS and had siblings including an Elizabeth aged 8 on the 1871 census record living in Sheffield.

This sister Elizabeth Ann CUTTS married a Thomas BOWER in the October quater of 1888 in Sheffield and the 1911 census, as below, shows her and her husband living at West Leigh in Walton in Wakefield Yorkshire with three daughters Jessie aged 18, Ethelwyn aged 12 and Gladys aged 11.

BOWER nee CUTTS 1911 Census

Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 27366 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1911 England Census

This seemed to be a very good fit to the family as shown in the photograph and the names Tom and Lizzie fit with the postcard message from ‘Tom & Lizzie’, so I think we have a match!

Do you have a family connection to the COWLISHAW or CUTTS families from Sheffield – if you do please send me an email as it would be great to reunite this lovely old photograph with a family member if possible.

Many thanks

Are you related to the HILLS family from Enfield Wash?

A recent old photographic postcard find was this lovely image of a smartly dress young man which had written on the back Mr C HILLS, 34 Uckfield Road, Enfield Wash – could I find a family link?

2119

2119a

I started by looking for the address on the 1911 census records and quickly found the HILLS family living at 34 Uckfield Road in Enfield, Edmonton, as below:

HILLS 1911 Cesnus

Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 7437; Schedule Number: 202 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1911 England Census

The head of house was Thomas HILLS aged 49 living with his wife Laura Annie aged 48 and children Olive Hilda aged 24, Clifford Thomas Oswald aged 22, Ivy Kathleen aged 17, Vera Madeline aged 14 and Dora Edna aged 11 and I therefore believe that possibly my old photograph could be of Clifford Thomas Oswald HILLS.

Clifford was born on the 10th December 1888 and his birth was registered in the Orsett in Essex Registration District – I have also found him on the 1939 World war Registers, as below, living in Enfield, where his occupation is shown as a Skilled Labourer employed On Rifle Work At War Department. The 1911 census shows his occupation as a R S F A Viewer so Clifford was already working at the Royal Small Arms Factory before World War 1.

HILLS 1939 WW2 Register

Source Citation: The National Archives; Kew, London, England; 1939 Register; Reference: RG 101/753G Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1939 England and Wales Register

Enfield was well known for the production of guns and most well known for the Enfield Rifle and there is more information here Royal Small Arms Factory

Clifford’s father Thomas HILLS married Laura Annie MADDER in the July quarter of 1885 in the Orsett Essex Registration District.

Clifford Thomas Oswald HILLS died aged 73 in the April quarter of 1962 in Worthing in Sussex.

If you have a link to Clifford HILLS or his family please send me an email as it would be fantastic to reunite this lovely old photograph with a  family member if possible.

Many thanks

Do you have a LUCKETT from Reading in your family tree?

One of my recent old photograph postcard finds was this lovely old image of a mother and son and on the back although there were no names there was an address and a month and year:

LUCKETT Photo front

The reverse of the postcard had the address 61 Coventry Road Reading and the date June 1917 – would this be enough to identify the lady and boy in the photograph?

LUCKETT Photo reverse

I decided that my fist area of reach would be the 1911 census and I quickly found the address 61 Coventry Road in Reading, which showed the family LUCKETT living at the address, as below:

LUCKETT 1911 Census

Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 6602; Schedule Number: 316 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1911 England Census

The family were William LUCKETT aged 26, Elizabeth LUCKETT aged 27 and Frank LUCKETT aged 2 – William and Elizabeth had been married for three years and only had one child Frank, Williams occupation was a Clerk at the Huntley and Palmer Biscuit factor in Reading – could this be the mother and child in the photograph?

There is more information here Huntley & Palmers Biscuit Factory

William Augustus LUCKETT married Elizabeth BUSBY in the October quarter of 1907 in Henley Registration District in Oxfordshire and Frank William LUCKETT was born in the October quarter of 1908 again in Henley Registration District in Oxfordshire.

I then searched the 1939 World War 2 Registers for the address 61 Coventry Road in Reading and found that William and Elizabeth LUCKETT were still living at the same address and with them were two boys Leslie and Hubert – were they Grandchildren?

LUCKETT 1939 Register

Source Citation: The National Archives; Kew, London, England; 1939 Register; Reference: RG 101/2039A Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1939 England and Wales Register

Frank William LUCKETT married Gladys M VIVIAN in the July quarter of 1930 in Reading Registration District and they had a son Anthony N V LUCKETT in the October quarter of 1931, so who were the two children above living with William and Elizabeth in 1939.

On further investigation it turned out that Leslie C LUCKETT born in the January quarter of 1920 and Hubert R LUCKETT born in the April quarter of 1926 were in fact brothers of Frank William LUCKETT.

Frank William LUCKETT died in the April quarter of 1955 in Reading Registration District aged 55.

Do you have a family connection to the LUCKETT or VIVIAN families, if so please send me a message as it would be great to reunite this lovely old photograph with a family member if possible.

Many thanks

Are you related to Hogarth George MACK from Norfolk?

On Sunday I visited the Tolworth Postcard Fair in London and among my minds was this lovely old photographic postcard of a young man very smartly dressed in his naval uniform as below:

Hogarth George MACK

On turning the postcard over I was pleased to see a name had been added of Hogarth George MACK also known as Garth, as below,  and the photograph had been taken by A & S YALLOP Photographers based in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston in Norfolk – hopefully with this information I would able to discover more information about him and his family.

Hogarth George MACK reverse

I firstly found a birth record for Hogarth George MACK who was born in the January quarter of 1915 in the Flegg Registration District of Norfolk with mother’s maiden name of SMITH.

I then found that a James William MACK married an Ethel Kate SMITH in the July quarter of 1903 in the Norfolk Registration District and I then found the MACK family on the 1911 census, as below, living at 13 Olive Road in Southtown in Great Yarmouth in Norfolk – James aged 33 and Ethel aged 31 had been married seven years and had two children Leslie James MACK aged 4 and Cecil Henry MACK aged 2. James’s occupation is shown as a Butcher and also living wit the family is James’s mother Elizabeth MACK aged 68.

Moving forward I found that Hogarth George MACK married Lily FORSTER in the July quarter of 1938 in Newcastle upon Tyne in Northumberland.

Sadly I then discovered that Hogarth George MACK had been killed in action during World War 2 on 18th January 1941 aged 26 on the M V British Union Ship that had been sunk by enemy action, as below – there is more information here – M V British Union Ship

Do you have a connection to Richard Farmer LANE from Loughborough in Leicestershire?

I recently bought a large bundle of old photo postcards and as always I scan the backs for any clues to possibly identify the people shown in them – one that caught my eye was this lovely old photo card of a man in his garden with beautiful flowers, as below:

Richard LANE photo

On examining the reverse it had been postally used in 1906 and was sent from Bournemouth to a Master D LANE at 12 Chapman Street in Loughborough in Leicestershire, as below:

Richard LANE photo reverse

The message reads:

Dear Dick, I hope that you are well and a good boy to your mother…… Your Affect Father R Lane

Many people say to me that they do not have much information or many clues to get areas of their family research underway and I always say that less is more and to prove this I wanted to see what I could discover about the LANE family from this old postcard.

On looking for the LANE family at 12 Chapman Street in Loughborough, I quickly found the 1911 census records, as below, which shows Dick the recipient of the postcard in 1911 aged 15 – his father is Richard F LANE whose occupation is a Joiner:

Richard LANE 1911 Census

Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 19113 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1911 England Census

I then found the 1901 census for the LANE family, again as below, at the same address, however the wife’s name was Sarah Ann which was different from Amelia Elizabeth shown in 1911:

Richard LANE 1901 Census

Source Citation: Class: RG13; Piece: 2977; Folio: 144; Page: 28 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1901 England Census

It turns out that Dick’s mother Sarah Ann LANE had sadly died in the January quarter of 1907 aged 43 and Dick’s father Richard Farmer LANE had gone on to marry again in 1909 to Amelia Elizabeth COLLINS. The first marriage had been in 1890 to Sarah Ann SHEPHERD.

Then looking for Dick’s birth I found his birth registration in the October quarter of 1895 in Loughborough Registration District and his full name was Richard Albert Farmer LANE.

Researching Richard (Dick) Albert Farmer LANE further I discovered that sadly he had been killed aged 20 during World War 1 on the 3rd February 1916 and as you will see from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission certificate, as below, his father was still living at 12 Chapman Street in Loughborough.

Richard LANE Death WW1

Dick’s father Richard Farmer LANE senior shown on the front of the old postcard died in the July quarter of 1955 aged 88 in Loughborough and I am sure he greatly mourned his son for many years.

If anyone has a connection to the LANE family from Loughborough please drop me an email as it would be lovely to reunite it with a family member if possible.

Many thanks

If only they had a clue – beautiful old social history photographs!!

I have been very lucky on my travels to find several old family/wedding photos that have had clues on the back to help identify and research the people in them to hopefully reunite them with a  family member.

However over time I have built up a collection of several other beautiful old family/wedding/ social history photographs that have no clues, but I feel are worthy of sharing with you on my blog:

It is a long shot but if you recognise anyone please just let me know!

Do you have a John Albert HEIL or a Rachel Phyllis HOWARD in your family tree?

A recent old wedding photograph postcard find provided very few clues apart from Heil Howard 13199 written in pencil on the back – could these possibly be the surnames of the bride and groom?

HEIL and HOWARD Wedding front

On a quick search of marriage records I could only find one possible marriage to match for a John Albert HEIL to Rachel Phyllis HOWARD in the October quarter of 1941 in the Kings Lynn in Norfolk Registration District.

HEIL and HOWARD Wedding reverse

John Albert HEIL died in the October quarter of 1977 in the Taunton Registration District in Somerset aged 62, confirming his date of birth as 13th November 1914.

Rachel Phyllis HEIL nee HOWARD died in November 2000 also in Taunton Registration District aged 82, confirming her date of birth as 20th May 1918.

Looking at their birth registrations John Albert HEIL’s mother’s maiden name was DENT and Rachel Phyllis HOWARD;s mother’s maiden name was WILKIN.

If you have  a connection to any of these families please send me a message as it would be great to reunite this beautiful wedding photograph with a family member if possible.

UPDATE: Photo Reunited – Do you have a BEACHAM from Kettering in Northamptonshire?

On my trip to Suffolk last week I was able to visit Yoxford Antiques Centre where I purchased a few old postcards, including this lovely old photo card with the names Lionel and Stanley BEECHAM written on the back – the photograph has the indentation of a Photographer from Kettering in Northamptonshire.

BEACHAM Postcard front 12 8 19

Some initial research showed that the surname is spelt BEACHAM rather than BEECHAM and Stanley (Charles Hebert Stanley) was born in the October quarter of 1901 and Lionel was born in the April quarter of 1904 both in the Bristol Registration District.

BEACHAM Postcard reverse 12 8 19

The 1911 census, as below,  shows the BEACHAM family living at 108 St Peters Avenue in Kettering in Northamptonshire and the head of house was Charles BEACHAM aged 36 whose occupation was a Traveller for a Leather Factory, his wife Alice Lilian George BEACHAM aged 34, and sons Charles Hebert Stanley BEACHAM aged 9 and Lionel BEACHAM aged 6.

BEACHAM 1911 Census

Source Citation: Class: RG14; Piece: 8576; Schedule Number: 149 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1911 England Census

Charles Hebert Stanley BEACHAM died on 21st April 1969 and Lionel BEACHAM died on 12th April 1964 both in Northamptonshire.

If you have a connection to the BEACHAM family please send me a message as any extra information would be very much appreciated and the chance to reunite this lovely old photograph with a family member would be a super result!

UPDATE: Do you have a SUTCLIFFE, PALETHORPE or PINDER in your family tree?

UPDATE:

On Monday evening I received  a lovely message from Edward Wild regarding my blog post on the SUTCLIFFE family – Edward has a Facebook page called Ilkley Remembers and also blogs about the men and women from Ilkley in Yorkshire who died in the First World War – it turns out that Leslie Peveril SUTCLIFFE is one of the men that he has researched and as a result he has found that Leslie is buried in the town of Smithers in British Colombia in Canada.

You can read more here about Leslie Peveril SUTCLIFFE on Edward’s blog here – Ilkley Remembers  – Edward was wondering if I would allow him to use the photograph on his biography of Leslie SUTCLIFFE, because at the moment he only had a photograph of his grave.

He also told me that Leslie’s grave is tended by the Bulkley Historical Society who he was sure would also enjoy seeing the photograph. Edward has also in the past arranged for the Royal Canadian Legion to lay a wreath on Leslie’s grave so that he is not forgotten.                                                                                                                                                                      Following this message from Edward I then received another message that evening this time from Kira the curator at the Bulkley Valley Museum in Smithers British Colombia – she was so thrilled to finally see a picture of Leslie five years after first discovering his gravestone in her local cemetery and researching his story.

She also asked that if I was ever looking for a permanent home for the original photograph, she would gladly take it into the museum’s collection – this would be a fantastic outcome and great to think that it would be seen by lots of other people.

More information about the Museum here Bulkley Valley Museum

I love where the research into these old photograph that I find takes me……

Yesterday whilst at the Bloomsbury Ephemera Fair in London I came across this beautiful old photograph taken in Halifax, which had lots of super clues on the back to identify the sitters and hopefully reunite it with a family member!

SUTCLIFFE Photo 29 7 19

SUTCLIFFE Photo zoomed in 29 7 19

The names written on the front are Rene, Mother and Leslie, as above.

On the back is written Kate Neale SUTCLIFFE aged 39, Leslie Peveril SUTCLIFFE aged 8 and a half years and Kate Irene (Rene) SUTCLIFFE aged 7 years – the photograph was taken in February 1901, as below:

SUTCLIFFE Photo reverse 29 7 19

Seeing the date and year that the photograph was taken my first port of call for research was the 1901 census and I quickly found the SUTCLIFFE family living in Sowerby Bridge in Yorkshire, as below:

SUTCLIFFE 1901 Census

Source Citation: Class: RG13; Piece: 4131; Folio: 28; Page: 2 Source Information: Ancestry.com. 1901 England Census

The head of house was Henry SUTCLIFFE whose occupation was a Wool Merchant living with his wife Kate Neale SUTCLIFFE and children Edith, Mary, Leslie and Kate.

I then found the SUTCLIFFE family on the 1911 census, as below, living at Stafford House in Halifax:

I found the baptism record for Leslie Peveril SUTCLIFFE on 26th September 1897, as below – interestingly his father Henry’s occupation is shown as a Solicitor rather than a Wool Merchant:

I also found a ship’s record showing Arthur Peveril SUTCLIFFE setting sail for the United States of America and arriving on the 19th June 1918 – more research needed to see if he was on holiday or if he indeed settled there.

Kate Irene (Rene) PINDER nee SUTCLIFFE died in the January quarter of 1978 in the Leeds Registration District aged 84 and showing her actual date of birth as 12th October 1893.

I have found a couple of people on the Ancestry family researching this family so I have messaged them about this lovely old photograph – however if you also have a connection please drop me a line as it would be great to hear from you and hopefully reunite the photograph if possible!
