Looking for info on Parkers Bridgnorth, also Newnes and Lay

Query by Parkersue

I am looking for info on John Henry Parker of Bridgnorth late 1800s. His mother was Bertha Lousia Parker. She may have moved to London. He came to Canada around 1908. We do not know his fathers name.
Any information will be appreciated. I am also looking for horse farms from the same era in the Bridgnorth area. Would also appreciate any postcards written with the above name.

Try posting a "1901 Census Lookup Request PARKER family from Bridgnorth" at RootsChat.com - England - London Lookup Requests.

Also post a duplicate message in the England general board in case the family weren't in London.

Father's name should be on Birth Certificate/Death Certificate.

Thanks so much. I have not found a birth certificate for my Grandfather. His name was John Henry Parker. His mother was Bertha Louisa Parker born in Bridgnorth June 14 1862. We do not know if our grandfather was born in Bridgnorth or London (I believe his mother moved to London when he was born). Anway...I'm rambling and I will post to the other sites you suggested.
Thanks and Happy New Year!

Hi there Sue, You have to be very careful with a common and popular surname like PARKER. For instance, one of my own 2g grandfathers was a John Henry PARKER (groan). If you click on PARKER at the bottom of your journal, you will see a surname wiki page with all the great links that I could find on the surname generally.

Also, try and be specific when you mention locations in a journal. Not trying to be ignorant but I haven't the faintest clue where Bridgnorth is. This website is frequented by peoples worldwide.

I'm trying to create pages for other surnames but I need help. More Editors required please...even if you only do your own surnames it would be of assistance. Just follow the style/format that I've done for all other surnames.

Happy 1st of January to all as well.

Alison from downunder.

You are right, Bridgnorth is in the UK. Thanks!

I gathered that, just not what county/shire etc. The rootschat site is broken up into different boards and child boards for all locations England / Ireland / Scotland / Wales etc. Then there's the Emigrants board.
