About Roberts, Reed & Palmer Family Trees featuring Staley
Please sign in to see more.
I first started my research way back in 1976 when my father died unexpectedly and I realised I  didn't know much about his family as his parents had died years before I was born.

At this point in time I had just a few things in the back of my mind, stored there since  childhood.  Firstly there was a "French connection", secondly the Roberts line originated from  Falmouth in Cornwall and thirdly I had been told of the family matriarch, namely Little Mother  Tooth.

The French connection wasn't difficult to find, tracing my ancestors back to the Huguenots.  Falmouth in Cornwall remained elusive until April 2008 when I established that this was thru a  female blood line but discovering who Little Mother Tooth actually was has been amazing:

Little Mother Tooth was born in Islington, London in 1844 as Mary Ann Staley.  She married and had  three children before her husband died in an accident.  Subsequently she married Mr Tooth and went  on to have some "little teeth".  Visitors to my tree will find it is over-run with Staley's as  they have turned out to be one of the largest families in South Derbyshire.

This then led me to trace my mother's ancestors (the Reed's) and my husbands too (the Palmer's).

I hope you enjoy browsing my tree and please do contact me if you have any comments.

 1841 Sunday 6 June.  All ages 15 and above should have been rounded down to the nearest 5 year  multiple, i.e. ages shown as 15 may be 15-19, ages shown as 20 may be 20-24, etc.  Another point  to remember for ages is that people often said that they "were in their 60th year" meaning that  they had passed their 59th birthday. If a person gave information meaning they were in their 60th  year, they will be shown as being 60, whereas strictly keeping to the rules, they should be  recorded as 55.
 1851 Sunday 30 March
 1861 Sunday 7 April
 1871 Sunday 2 April
 1881 Sunday 3 April
 1891 Sunday 5 April
 1901 Sunday 31 March
 1911 Sunday 2nd April (including anyone who arrived in the dwelling on the morning of Monday 3rd  April and was not enumerated elsewhere).  This is the first census available to the general public  showing the original forms.

For the other census, mentioned above, it must be remembered that many of our ancestors could  neither read nor write. The Enumerator left forms with them but when he collected them, often he  would have to fill them in on their behalf.  The Enumerator then had to transfer all this  information into Enumerator Books and these are the documents that we are able to access thru  websites like Ancestry.com and Findmypast.  The original forms were subsequently destroyed, so  there is plenty of room for error.
