Re: May Hands/Nicholls, Born Birmingham

Classification: Query
Surnames: HANDS/NICHOLLS/ruston
Hi May Nicholls/Hands Born 1885/6 is the younger, half-sister of my Gt Grandfather, who is Joseph Hands, Born 1866, Birmingham. His parents were Philip William Hands (aka William Hands) and Sarah Richards. They are all together as a family in 1871 Census.

Then 1881 Census, Philip William Hands has a new wife, who is Florence (nee Nicholls), Joseph Hands, my Gt Grandfather is with the family, with more children.

Philip William Hands and Florence Nicholls both died in 1887. In 1891 Census, their young children are in the Cottage Homes for Pauper Children, Coleshill, District of Meriden, Birmingham, including May Nicholls/Hands, which is quite sad.

I have some info about May Nicholls/Hands and husband, Levi Ruston and lots of info on my Hands Family.

How are you connected to May Nicholls/Hands? Is it from Levi Ruston or her second husband?

I would be very grateful if you could let me view your tree and you are welcome to view my tree also.
