View Full Version : Soles of Cambs possibly Chatteris

8th February 2009, 12:12 AM
I have used the forum before looking for information on my great grandmother's family. She was born Henrietta Sole in Holborn, London in 1898. Her parents were William John Sole and Mary Barham. Until now I have been unable to get any further. Thanks to the 1911 census I now have a bit of additional information so wondered if this would help me to extend my search.

The census states that William Sole was born about 1875 in Chatteris (it was translated as Carriths but I assume it's Chatteris), Cambridgeshire. This is in line with the scant information I have from family suggesting a link with March in Cambridgeshire.

If anyone has any information about Sole families in this area it would be very gratefully received as I have been at a dead end for a long time

Many thanks

I think I know who your William John is, but it's by no means a certainty and it is a bit complicated to explain here. Does the surname Cooper feature anywhere in your family (perhaps as a first husband for Mary Barham?). Contact me directly (my e-mail address is on the Society's website) and I'll give you more detail.
