Where Was ALbert Briggs Born?

Postby Mick Loney » Mon Apr 10, 2017 11:03 am

Albert Briggs, aged 7, is living with his mother and grandmother in Chapelthorpe, Wakefield.

Can anyone with a local knowledge of Lincolnshire, identify his birthplace from the attached image? (His entry is 3rd one down)

Hi Mick, I've had a rummage around but cannot come up with anything. Could you tell us which census this is please. That way, we could look at the whole page of the census to see if the enumerator's script can help. Of course, it could just be the name of a farm, for example, and not a town or village which wouldn't be much help.

I reckon it's the 1911 Census and it's here:

I used FamilySearch for Albert Briggs born Lincs, resident Yorks.

Brunes08,
Sorry I should have said, but perhaps yellow colouring may give you a clue :)

I did try Tanvats as one of my options, trying to find it in a gazeteer, with no luck. This is one occasion when I forgot to google as well :)

Many thanks, I knew the forum would come up trumps! It also confirms it comes under Lincoln RD, as I thought

Are we related as my paternal grandmother was a Briggs before her marriage. I have her parents as John Thomas (Jock) Briggs and his wife as Annie Chilvers

Claire,
I doubt it, as Albert is the only Briggs who is blood relative of my Grandsons, who are the roots of my tree!

Albert's mother was Annie Rothery, who married Thomas Briggs. Because Thomas married into my family, and is not a blood relative, I haven't investigated his line at all. Thomas was born 1863, in Hunsworth, Yorkshire.
