View Full Version : Help appreciated - Banwell 1901 Census

02-06-2006, 6:31 AM

I'm hoping that someone may be able to help me please. I'm looking for information about ROSE ELLEN (nee HOLCOMBE) BANWELL

Rose Ellen Holcombe b 1879 in Williton Somerset. Her parents were Edgar John Holcombe and Elizabeth Burge.

Rose Ellen married a Mr Banwell about 1900? I have no christian name for her husband, or exact year of marriage.

There is a Rose Banwell b 1879 in Somerset, recorded on the 1901 Census, but I cannot access the details.

I know they had 1 son William James Banwell b 1900 in Williton and he married Blanche?

Rose emigrated to Rhodesia shortly after her eldest son was born. The son remained with his grandparents in Watchet. Rose had more children in Rhodesia, and died there in the 1960's.

Could anyone suggest how I might find information about this family, in Somerset, and also Rhodesia.

I would be most grateful for any help.
