View Full Version : St Petersburg 1870 - 1911

26-01-2010, 8:12 PM
In 1870 a William and Kate (Catherine) Sprowell left Oldham, Lancashire and went to St Petersburg. They must have returned to Oldham and then gone back at least once during the next forty years

In 1911 they were back in England and the census indicates that they had 13 children in total of which 7 were still living and 6 had died.

I am aware of the following children ...

Mary Ann born c1870 Rochdale, Lancashire.
Thomas born c1879 Russia
Maggie born c1881 Russia
Flossie born c1885 Oldham, Lancashire
Frederick born c1887 Russia
William born c1889 Russia

Thomas, Maggie, Fred and William were back in Oldham and all living together on the 1901 census.

Please, does anyone have access to any records concerning St Petersburg which might make reference to this family ?
