    My cousin Walter, born Puddletown in 1864 (birth registered Dec quarter), baptised 26 March 1865, son of Henry Harvey and Sarah Legg.

    He married Harriett Ann Poulter, 25 Dec 1888 in St John's church, Melcombe Regis

    They had the following children:

    Sidney Walter, b. 1889 in Yeovil, Somerset
    Frederick, b. 1892 in Weymouth (not the Frederick Daniel born later the same year, which is a shame, because then I'd be able to trace him :sceptical:), all I have is the birth registration
    Mary Elizabeth or May, b. 13 Sep 1894 in Weymouth
    Ernest, b. & d. Mar 1899 in Poole
    Herbert, b. Mar 1902 in Poole

    Harriett died in 1909, in 1911 Sidney and Herbert are with Walter in Poole, May is off training for domestic service in Hammersmith, Frederick I cannot find.

    According to Walter's 1911 census he had 7 children, 4 still living. I have searched the GRO indexes and can only identify the 5 I have given above.

    I cannot find the family in 1901, they should be in Poole. Can anyone find them? Or the two missing children? Or Frederick in 1911?

    If that turns out to be your Frederick, I think he married Alice D(orothy) Woodsford in 1921, Wimborne.

    1939 Register has a Frederick Harvey (d.o.b. 11.04.1892) and Dorothy Harvey at 3 Pea Cottage (Wareham and Purbeck R.D., Dorset) together with who I think may be a daughter (born 1921). Frederick is listed as a Farm Carter.

    So far, I have found a couple of baptisms for the children - both in the parish of Bloxworth.

    Mary Elizabeth bap 14 or 16 Aug 1896 (note in the left hand margin says nearly 2 years old).

    William John bap 16 Aug 1896.

    Parents are Walter and Ann. Walter is a gardener.

    Searching the GRO for William John - there is one listed for the Sep Q 1896, Wareham. Mothers maiden name is POULTERER - so this could be one of the missing children.

    There is a death registration of a one year old William John HARVEY in the March Q of 1898 in Poole.
