Subject: Stoke Dam. 1891 name index
I've recently found a related HOOPER family in Stoke Damerel and have been
very interested in the correspondence about the place.
I certainly remember my grandparents in the 1930s refering to "Stoke"as a
part of Plymouth.
If anyone is going to the Plymouth Central Library soon, could he/she look
up the 1891 Census surname index for Stoke D.
I only discovered it existed by reading all the gen.
The people are William Francis HOOPER, 27 and Jessie HOOPER 26, married in
1889. Any info would be helpful.
Many thanks. I've had so much help from the folk from Plymouth on this list
that I feel reluctant to ask for more. I've think I've had my share.
If there's anything I can look up in Oz I'd be more than pleased to help.
