Anybody have any information on the Fullard family.....I have only got back to 1852 Barnet Fullard, I think maybe born in Sedgley,Staffordshire, his son (my Great Grandad) John Fullard was born in Sedgley and was a blast furnace laborer and his son (my Grandad) was Joseph Fullard 1913. Does anybody have my peeps in their trees, if so, Please contact me?!! Many Thanks- Stella.

Hi Stella

None of your "peeps" in my tree, but I have been digging about for Barnet. I found him in a couple of the censuses.

If I am correct, he was married more than once.

I can't find any record of Barnet's birth, but I am going to make a suggestion to you as to why you haven't found his birth as yet.

My theory is that Barnet was a middle Christian name and that he was baptised under his first Christian name. I would go even further and say that my suspicion is that Barnet was his mother's maiden name (quite a common trait in those days to have mother's maiden name as a middle name)

It may well be worth looking for a marriage between Fullard/Barnet - this might throw up Barnet's parents.

Regards

Tony

Hi Stella

Me again - I found this entry.

I am positive it is more than co-incidence. Barnet is such an unusual Christian name. It might be worth following things down from this marriage -

1. On 07 AUG 1797 at Kingswinford in county of STS Groom Barnet FULLARD Status – Occupation – Residence – in county of – Notes – Bride Leah PORTER Status – Occupation – Residence – in county of – Notes – Banns or Licence – General Notes – Source –

Hope I'm not overloading your "inbox".

I am now beginning to thing Barnet wasn't sure what his age was when he completed his census records (some of mine didn't seem to know either). I am now beginning to think that he was in fact born in 1842 - I found a birth registration in that name.

It is probably still worth trying to trace it down from the previous Barnet Fullard. I will have a go.

Hiya Tony, Thanks for looking. I am certain the Birth Date is correct. There is another Barnett Fullard, spelt with two tt's, but in the registration district of Dudley and in 1842 I think. Thanks for helping, I've been stuck for ages with this. I could only find his details on the 1881 census. I was hoping to get as far back as I could with the tree on my Dad's side. From Stella.

Hi Stella

Just a couple of things. Have you got the details of Barnet Fullard's marriage ? If so, what is his fathers name ?

I now have found Barnet family in the 1891 census. I have a copy of it also showing John. I can let you have a copy if you wish. I found it just by entering childrens first names.
You will never guess how it has been transcribed. The surname has been written down as Fullwood. The typewritten christian name for Barnet has been transcribed as Varney, but looking at the original census, I read it as Barney.
Everything else ties in nicely because of the following, which I am not sure if you have.

Barnets first wife Jane died in 1885 aged 29 years (I have the GRO ref) He then remarried Susannah Hartshorne in 1889 (again I have the GRO ref)

All these records tend towards the view that Barnet was born about 1852 as you say.

BINGO - I think I have now solved your riddle.

I have found him in the 1861 census and also in the 1852 Dudley Registration District births (which covers Sedgley)_ in the name of BARNARD FULLWARD.

I am not sure how long you have been genealoging ??? but I have come across these spelling anomolies in my ancestry too.

The problem was that in those days, many of our dear ancestors
could not read or write, so that when children were registered or they were baptised, the people writing down in the information had to write it as they thought,

Anyway, I would now be 99.99% certain that we have found him (I don't say that lightly, because in my own ancestry, I will not accept anything as correct unless it reaches that sort of level).

Let me know what you think, and also if you want me to send you any of the information I have found.

Regards

Tony

No i haven't got any certificates concerning Barnet. Yes, you are right he did marry a Jane, who i have in my Genes Reunited Family Tree!!!! But didn't know she died so young or that he remarried a Susannah Harsthorne. Thankyou so much for helping me, you are a kind soul!!! So how would I find his parents then? I have only been doing this 'Genes' thing for 10 months,I'm not a paying member of Ancestry and was suprised to be able to recieve messages. I have found living family in my Dad's (Fullard) side that I didn't know I had. You can email me daldydir@btinternet.com
if it's easier for you...easier for me, I'm not good with technology, it's these Welsh Hills, they can't cope with technology (gotta blame something)!!! Thanks, Stella.

Hi Jackie

Your query is sure fire a puzzler.

I think we may have corresponded in 2006 about this but can't be certain.

I thought I was making headway, and it might still be correct, but something reared its head.

Could you tell me which one of Isaac and Sarah's children you descend from.

I have found the family on 1841,1851,1861 and 1871 census records and then I found the attached info on the IGI.

Does it mean anything to you ?

Hi Stella

Do you remember you contacting me in 2006 about this family.

Another lady named Jackie has just contacted me with regard to the same family.

I am doing research for her. Would you like to let you know what I have found, and would you also like to have contact with Jackie ?
