    Hi
    I am now trying to trace my Mothers side of the family. Mum was born 2/03/1933 and sadly died 10 years ago. Her Mother was May Russell (formally Hudson) and Father William Russell. Grandads Mother was a tyrant whose maiden name was Tedstone and I am trying to do some research into this sideof the family. They all came from Birmingham

    Hi Jules - do you have a copy of May and William's marriage certificate? If not, you can order a copy from the GRO for £9.25. The reference is:
    March quarter 1930, Birmingham registration district, volume 6d, page 271.

    You would only have to put May HUDSON in the name section.

    If you click here, it will take you through to an article that tells you what you can expect to find on it. :)

    From Ancestry's Birmingham Marriages:

    22 February 1900 at Birmingham St Paul William RUSSELL, 31, bachelor, Gun Actioner, 38 Hall Street, father Thomas RUSSELL (deceased), Gun Barrel Maker & Harriet TEDSTONE, 23, spinster, 42 Cyril Road, Small Heath, father George Henry TEDSTONE, Carpenter. Witnesses: Henry FREEMAN & Jessie WAINWRIGHT (think the latter name is correct).

    There is a burial at Aston St Peter & St Paul which could be relevant to you:

    28 January 1879 George Henry son of George Henry & Harriet TIDSTONE, Branston Street, aged 3

    Fantastic and what a fast response.Harriet really was a horrible lady and I remember her because of it! My Granmas side The Hudsons are a bit illusive. May Hudson born 16/11/1903 (my Grandma) married William Russell. Any clues on nans side?

    Do you know what her parents' names were? If not, the marriage certificate that I mentioned in post #2 will give you her father's name and occuaption, which will help to track them down in the 1911 census. :)

    I know her Mum was Phaobe but nothing more. I am slowly getting used to things but find it hard to get around the details. Many Thanks for your help

    I know you say your grandmother was
    I have looked through the GRO index and can't find a registration in December 1903 for a May Hudson. Maybe she was one of the following?

    There were 2 registered in March 1904

    May Hudson - Walsall - 6b - 772

    May Hudson - Pickering - 9d - 457

    So probably this one:
    Walsall is less than 10 miles from Birmingham. :)

    Yes. She had a sister Phoebe(like her mother) another sister rose brothers Tom and Ive forgotten the other one. I didnt know she had come from Walsall. I think maybe that is why I had problems finding her because I was specifically looking for 1903

    Phew! I think that I have found them in 1911 (Ref: RG14, PN18180, RG78,PN1099, RD385, SD1, ED33, SN93)

    Robert, 55, Night Watchman, b Birmingham
    Phoeby, 52, married 30 years, 11 children, 7 still living, b Birmingham
    Rose, 29, daughter, Electro plate worker, b Birmingham
    William, 24, son, Plumber out door, b Wolverhampton
    Thomas, 19, son, Sailor, b Birmingham
    Florence Anna, 17, daughter, Electro plate worker, b Birmingham
    Maud, 14, daughter, Sorter sweet factory, b Birmingham
    May, 7, daughter, b Walsall (ta-dah!)

    Living at 123 Cattell Road, Aston

    There is also a very faded entry that has been crossed out on the record that could be for an Allen or Alban Hudson, son, aged 28. Although he was not living in the house, they probably wanted to include him as one of the 7 children still living.
