    Default Shaws from Hertfordshire

    I'm looking for information on the children and descendents of:

    George Shaw (b. 29 June 1853 in Toddington d. ?) and
    Hannah Parkins Champkin (b. 1860 in Leverstock Green d. ?)

    The names of the children I'm seeking information on are:

    George William Shaw (b. 15 Apr 1882 St. Albans)

    Emily Priscilla Shaw (b. 4th quarter, 1886 St. Albans)

    Edith Alnetta (Annette?) Shaw (b. 7 Dec 1888 St. Albans)

    I'm a descendent of George and Hannah's 2nd child, Frederick Harold Hugh Shaw (b. 16 June 1884 St. Albans d. 1935 Toronto Ont. Canada).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the B-G forums

    In your shoes, the first thing to do would be to try and follow the family and children in census returns. These are available on many pay-per-view sites - e.g. TheGenealogist, findmypast, 1901censusonline, etc.

    In particular can you identify any of them in the 1911 census, if any are lviing as married couples the census records the length of marriage.

    Did George serve in the armed forces in WW1? - Try the CWGC site to see if he died in WW1. The medal card index, surviving army service records and possibly RN records too. (The 1901 census RG13/96 f90 p6 has a George SHAW, aged 20, soldier, bn St.Albans).

    Do you know of freebmd - the online transcript of the General Register Office (GRO) indexes of births?

    Did George SHAW (bn 1854) leave a will? - These are great sources of information.

    If you are not familiar with any of these and how you might use them to assist, please ask.

    Hi
    Found this for Hannah Shaw - no George with her
    1891 Census - Source Citation: Class: RG12; Piece: 1115; Folio 22; Page 38

    Hannah Shaw 31 - Married - Dressmaker
    George Shaw 8
    Frederick Shaw 6
    Emily Shaw 4
    Almetta Shaw 2


    1901 Census, Source Citation: Class: RG13; Piece: 1311; Folio: 126; Page: 17.

    Charles Maskett 45
    Hannah Maskett 41 - Wife
    Fred Shaw 16 - Stepson

    Although I cant find marriage for them.
    Or a death for George Shaw.
