Looking for Rimmington Family information

Recommended Posts



I am looking for information re: Henry Wilfred Rimmington born in Sheffield England married Ada ( maiden name unknown)


Henry and Ada had a son named James Henry Rimmington (1900-1975) married Dorothy Eastwood (1920-1995)


Dorothys parents were Albert Eastwood and Rebecca (maiden name unkown)


Any information would be helpful on any Rimmington and I am looking for Ada and Rebeccas maiden name.


Thank you all in advance!

I can't find a Henry Wilfred RIMMINGTON, but there is this houselhold in the 1901 census index:


1901 census (index only)

Census place: Brightside Bierlow (Sheffield)

James Rimmington 26 Labourer General N K Elms

Ada Rimmington 22 Yorks Sheffield

William Rimmington 3 Yorks Sheffield

Henry Rimmington 0 Yorks Sheffield


...where Henry could be James Henry, whose birth was registered shortly before the census:


GRO Births MAR Qtr 1901


Sheffield 9c 644


If you order the birth certificate, which you can do online here, this may clear up any confusion with the father's name and also give Ada's maiden name.


This may be the parents marriage:

GRO Marriages SEP Qtr 1896


FISHER Ada Alice

Sheffield 9c 638


...agian a certificate would be needed to prove the link.


For the Eastwood family I think the floowing are the marriage of the parents amd the birth of Dorothy...


GRO Marriages DEC Qtr 1898


DAVIS Rebecca Jane

Ecclesall Bierlow 9c 659

(note - 2 other names on page, not necessarily a couple)


GRO Births SEP Qtr 1920

EASTWOOD Dorothy (mother's maiden name: DAVIS)

Sheffield 9c 1074


These GRO references all come from FreeBMD
