    Hi, Well here goes.
    Sidney Fry born Somerset 1856 (Banwell)
    He is in the 1881 census with wife Elizabeth and children Kate and Charles.
    Then he is no longer around. His wife died in 1888 in Banwell and on the cert has wife of Sidney Fry.
    The children are farmed out in the 1891 census.
    Did he die too. Relations went to Wales.
    Any help would be great. :) Rosemary

    I can see him prior to the 1881 but I cannot find him after that census.
    I'll keep looking......

    Me neither, many of them about one married in Keynsham Dec. 1890. Cannot find him & his wife in 1891 either, a Minnie or Alice.
    One or two court cases but spelling is SYdney. Lots of travel later.
    Will have another look after the ironing & Toronto.

    Thanks, I did see a Fry had died in the workhouse in Cardiff, but can't find out any more about that one. Maybe he changed his name as he didn't look after the children. He had a few children before Elizabeth died in 1888. Birth of the children Charles 1877, Kate 79 (grandma), Mabel 81, Ella Mary 82 and Alfred Leonard 85. Sidney didn't marry Elizabeth until 1880.

    I cannot find him after 1881 either. =. He doesn't appear on the deaths either.
    Any possibility he moved and perhaps emigrated? Do you know where in Wales his family moved to?

    Yes I saw the death in 1893 in St Johns Parish. Cardif, at the Union Workhouse. But I checked the burial register - no first name - no age.

    William J Fry b1890 Banwell

    I cannot find a James Fry born Banwell c1857, either a birth reg or on the census. Can anyone else?

    I found a James born 1855 Axbridge which is the area Banwell comes under.
    Also a James in 1881 with a wife called Emma, living with his father Charles, in Wrighton. An Emma did die in 1882. So this may not be my Sidney.
