Family Talling

Postby dazza79 » Sun Feb 20, 2011 12:38 pm

Hi, I'm in desperate need of help tracing my dad's grandparents and beyond. Unfortunately he has no memory of them and all photos and documents were destroyed some years ago. My dad's name is Julian R D Talling born 26 Oct 1952 in Kent, his brothers are Jeremy Talling born 1951 and Barry E J Talling born 1949. His parents were James Edward Talling born 5 May 1909 and died in 6 Jun 1980, his mum was Agnes Dulcie Cook born 18 Jan 1922 in Oxford and died 21 Aug 1973. I've looked on but there doesn't seem to be any info on other family members apart from some Marine info on James Edward Talling. If there is anyone out that could help me out and point me in the right direction I would be grateful? Thanks

I have searched on
The following information (some of which you already have) should help.
You will have to order a certificate or two from either the local register office or the GRO. This will confirm names dates etc.
James Edward Talling m Agnes D. Cook Sept 1947 Witney Vol 6b Page 2597

James Talling b June 1909 York Vol 9d Page 18
Agnes Cook b March 1922 Witney Vol3a Page 1958 (mothers maiden name Saunders)

There is also a marriage for a John Cook to a Florence FR Saunders Dec 1915 Oxford Vol 3a Page 3109
if this is your relative, there are a couple of brothers and sisters listed under Cook (Saunders) in the Witney district.

On the 1911 Census I found :

Caroline Talling b 1881 North Wales ( Mold) , wife , married 4 Years
James Edward Talling b 1910 York, son.

Address : Richmond Barracks ( inc Hospital ), Richmond, Yorks.

I then found :

Alfred J Talling m Caroline A Long J-M 1912 Droxford , Hampshire , 2c 223

There is also a possible birth record for Alfred John Talling, J-M 1874 New Forest ,Hampshire, 2b 645 ,
which might give you a lead on the Census - but I notice that Talling seems to suffer from the usual transcription errors !
Hope this helps a bit !
