Looking for information regarding Peter DELAHAYE & his family of North Shields
I'm looking for the marriage of Thomas LUCAS born 1919 or 1925 in Llangurig, Montgomery and Louisa Frances COOPER born 1839 or 1841 in Ryde Isle of Wight. The first child of whom I have a record (1871 census) is also called Thomas LUCAS born c. 1859. I can find no record of his birth either. By 1871 the family is living in Islington where all the 12 children found so far were born and where both Thomas and Louisa died in 1891 and 1912 respectively. (I have death certs.) ... LUCAS offspring: Thomas (1859); Edward (1860); Ernest (1863); Emily (1864); Florence (1866 - married Noel CHEESEWRIGHT 1886, but was a widow in 1901 census); Sydney (1870 - married Rhoda/Rhode, who became an LCC councillor and campaigned against turnstile entrances in ladies' toilets!); Albert (1873); Minnie (1873 - twin to Albert?); Winifred (1875 - married Richard TARRY 1895. She died in 1962); Edith (1870 - possibly the twin of my Grandmother Amy Gertrude, who married James BALLS...their children also born in Islington and, finally, Grace (1881). However, I always understood there to have been 18 little LUCASí...does anyone know about any more?
I have photos of Thomas LUCAS and Louisa COOPER, but have searched the PRO microfiche to no avail to find their marriage and, therfore, their ancestors. I have found references to a Ted LUCAS, boxer of Islington, but doubt if he be the above Edward - but I'd be happy to be contradicted. If anyone out there knows anything, regarding descendants of any of the children listed, it would be much appreciated. Thank you, Robina Dexter

Looking for descendants of Mark DANDY b. abt 1877 in Wrightington, Lancashire
I am looking for descendants of Mark DANDY b. abt. 1877 in Wrightington, Lancashire.

At the age of 14 he is listed as a boarder in Standish, working at the bleachworks as a cotton boy. A cousin of mine knows he joined the army and her mother did in fact meet him again in later life.

Looking for ancestors or descendants of James BRINDLEY (the Canal Engineer) & his children
I am trying to trace descendants of James BRINDLEY the Canal engineer or his two daughters. I also believe he had a son ... so Iíd be grateful if anyone knows any details surrounding his son John BENNETT? I realize that anyone who has the name BRINDLEY thinks they are a descendant of James but this is impossible because he only had two daughters with the famous surname name and both married and had children under their married name. However James BRINDLEY had a son, named John BENNETT, and his life and birth seems to be a mystery. I have found out that John BENNETTís ancestors seem to have claimed fame themselves in the way of the famous writer Arnold BENNETT. I am very interested in anyone who is a BRINDLEY, or a BENNETT (or both) or anyone who just has a missing piece to the puzzle; we canít all be related to him surely. Please some one throw some light on this for me. Thanks Nicole.
