Rachel,

I wonder if you can help me. I'm trying to trace my mother's father, who she never knew. He was called Edward Price (see earlier thread) and lived at Farquahar Road in Crystal Palace in the 1940s (which runs parallel to the Crystal Palace Parade). At that time he must have been in his late-20s or 30s. But if you can access the Census up to 1901, could you please check to see if there were any other Prices living in that street or nearby.

Thanks.

I don't suppose anyone from the Price family is listed around Farquahar Road at all?

I'll have a go, but it sounds like a bit of a long shot. Unfortunately I don;t have free access to the address search for the 1901 census which doesn't help!

This is a delicate question, but was Edward Price married to your mother's mother? If so, a birth certificate (you can order them online for £7) would allow you to make some headway with this. Otherwise, if he was in his 20s/30s in the 1940s he might be on the 1910 census, but that's not available for another 4 years.

No, they weren't married. My grandmother (Christin Rawlings, nee Bull and later Griffiths) had a fling with the said Edward Prive between husbands, actually, and Edward Price himself was married - hence the fact that he obviously doesn't want to be found!!

Thanks for letting me know about the 1910 Census, that's great news.

They are campaigning to get access to it earlier, so you never know.

The only other way forward at the moment might be if there were some trade directories of the area, which list who is doing what. I found some Prices in West Norwood in 1901, so they might have moved up (literally!) in the world and gone to Upper Norwood. By the way, I found a Millicent Emma Musgrave, born 1877, Wandsworth. May be connected? There's also a Millicent Emma Musgrave dieing in 1879 Lambeth (although her birth is given as approx 1878). Perhaps she is another niece of the Millicent you are after.


I wonder if James would prefer it if I PM'd you anything else I find out as it's a bit of a two person thread at the moment!

I think that even if people aren't able to contribute to the discussion they are definitely interested in learning about your research, and how the story unfolds.

With your notes and lines of questioning we get a small glimpse into the history of our area. And undoubtedly anyone doing their own geneology will pick up a few pointers along the way.

We helped solve a few local mysteries by putting things out for comment and as long as you are happy to do so, I think the forum is a good spot for your research to be documented.

(just be sure to keep a personal backup of your notes, okay?)

Thanks again, Rachel, I can't wait for the next census to appear :)

Meanwhile, if anyone can consult a trade directory, I do know that between 1946-48 EDWARD PRICE worked at a garage specialising in Rolls Royce cars and may even have been a chauffeur. The garage stood where Thompson Garages now stands at 268, Beulah Hill SE19 (Crown Point). EDWARD PRICE also worked as a hospital porter in the 1950s, possibly at Mayday Hospital in Croydon.

If anyone hears something about the 1910 census being opened earlier than expected, please let me know.

Many thanks.

Sorry I meant 1911.

The reason they don't want to release it early is that they want to avoid making information about living people available.

Ah, it's the 1911 Census. thanks, Rachel.

And I can understand the opposition, in a way, especially with the increasing surveillance we have in this country.

I can now add, by the way, that Edward Price lived at No. 44 Farquahar Road.

Two new things have come to light about my elusive grandfather:

1. He may have worked at Kings College Hospital in Denmark Hill (Camberwell) during the late-1950s.

2. He also had approx. 4-5 children, one being about the same age as my mother (58).

Does anyone have any further news concering whether the 1911 Census is going to be made available earlier than expected?

Meanwhile, if anyone has any information about Edward Price or any other members of the Price family once living at 44 Farquahar Road I can be contacted at arktoslondon@yahoo.co.uk

Thanks.
