Hi again Kiwigirl,
you're welcome re my reply. Sorry if I seemed a bit abrupt by mentioning the time, I didn't mean it that way, as soon as I shut down the pc I regretted maybe seeming a tad unfriendly but I was long overdue some sleep.
Thanks too for your extra info, very helpful indeed. I'd noticed you'd been "on" the forum for some years so guessed you'd done all the right things astwere, but always worth checking just in case.
Also thanks for confirming this really is a tricky search - when I logged-in again just now I was selfishly "worried" I'd find your search would be over and others contributors esp MPG had got it all sorted, it wouldn't be the first time I'd missed the obvious haha.

So to recap, for my benefit and perhaps future researchers, I appreciate you already know this Kiwigirl;

This site has Bessie's parents' marriage (still cannot see mention of them in prior forum posts). I also wonder why they don't seem to be listed on the Hale FH site ?

(Great for me to see an engineering family tradition !)


1881 Lea, Herefordshire, England, United Kingdom
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Henry Hale Head M 36 Coal miner. Parkend, Gloucestershire, England
Elizabeth Hale Wife F 30 Parkend, Gloucestershire, England
Bertha Hale Daughter F 9 Scholar. Parkend, Gloucestershire, England
Henry Hale Son M 8 Parkend, Gloucestershire, England
Eliza Hale Daughter F 6 Parkend, Gloucestershire, England
John Hale Son M 4 Parkend, Gloucestershire, England
Joseph Hale Son M 3 Parkend, Gloucestershire, England
Sarah Hale Daughter F 1 Littledean Hill, Gloucestershire, England

Using the FoD PRs search facility we can find these ten Baptisms, suggesting there's another child you've not spotted KiwiGirl ;

Year Surname First Name Fathers Forename Mothers Forename Event Parish/Chapel
1889 HALE Bertha Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1889 HALE Elisabeth Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1889 HALE Sarah Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1890 HALE Henry Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1890 HALE John Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1890 HALE Joseph Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1890 HALE Fred Loftus Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1890 HALE Ernest Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1890 HALE Frank Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John
1890 HALE Herbert Henry Elisabeth Baptism Cinderford St John

NB: clicking on the individual PRs shows many of these children were Baptised some years after they were born, eg Bertha's Baptism PR states born 7th June 1881. I wonder iof this means the family moved to Ruspidge c1888 ?


Now in Ruspidge, southern edge of Cinderford, aka East Dean Township;

1891 East Dean, Parish St John, W-o-S District, Glos
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Henry Hale Head M 43 Coal miner. Gloucestershire, England
Elizath Hale Wife F 41 Gloucestershire, England
Henry Hale Son M 17 Coal miner. Gloucestershire, England
Bessie Hale Daughter F 16 Scholar. Gloucestershire, England
John Hale Son M 14 Scholar. Gloucestershire, England
Joseph Hale Son M 13 Gloucestershire, England
Sarah Hale Daughter F 11 Scholar. Gloucestershire, England
Fred L Hale Son M 9 Gloucestershire, England
Earnest Hale Son M 9 Gloucestershire, England
Frank Hale Son M 4 Gloucestershire, England
Herbert Hale Son M 0 Gloucestershire, England

Confirming MPG's thought abt Bessie having a sister named Sarah.
