The mother of Joshua Jordan (born 18/09/1797) and husband of William Jordan. Ann (unknown) c1784, Gloucs, England Ann (unknown) c1787, Aston Abbotts, Bucks, England Ann (unknown) c1789, Middx, England There are two Anns married to Richard Kendalls in Marylebone at this time: Ann Morley and Ann Bennett Ann (unknown) c1792, Wold, Northants, England Ann (unknown) c1807, Staffs?, England Francis Wood's wife, who died in 1838 Ann (unknown) c1808, Chalford, Gloucs Ann (unknown) c1810, Oxon, England Ann (unknown) c1811, Warks Ann (unknown) c1813, Birmingham, Warks Annea (unknown) c1753, Northants?, England Bridget (unknown) c1645, Gloucs?, England Charlotte (unknown) c1796, Southampton, Hants, England Elinor (unknown) c1650, Gloucs? Elizabeth (unknown) c1724, Oxon? Elizabeth (unknown) c1733, Gloucs, England Elizabeth (unknown) c1787, Bewdley, Worcs James Taylor's wife and mother of several children, born in Bewdley, and christened in Ribbesford, over the period 1814 to 1828. She appears to have moved to the Key Hill area of All Saints, Birmingham in the 1830s (possibly as late as 1840).
The earliest Elizabeth is likely to have been born is circa 1785 (from her last child, born 1828) and the latest 1798 (from her first child, born 1814), with her birth year c 1790 (if she had her first child at 24 in 1814). The ages given (64 and 74) given in the 1851 and 1861 censuses would make her year of birth most likely to be 1787.
Elizabeth (unknown) c1797, Ebley?, Gloucs Elizabeth (unknown) c1810, West Bromwich, Staffs, England Elizabeth (unknown) c1815, Aldgate, Middx Elizabeth (unknown) c1823, Neithrop, Oxon Elizah (unknown) c1794, location unknown Fanny (unknown) c1806, Leighton Buzzard, Beds, England Hannah (unknown) c1786, Northants, England Hannah survived to at least 1841 (census). It is very likely (but amazing) that she married in the Stockport area in the second quarter of 1850, when she would have been about 64. Hannah (unknown) c1803, Oxon Hannah (unknown) c1815, Oxenton, Gloucs, England Hannah (unknown) c1815, Warnham, Sussex Hannah M (unknown) c1831, Co Durham, England Isabella (unknown) c1777, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England Jane (unknown) c1662, Gloucs Jane (unknown) c1805, Curbridge, Oxon Jane (unknown) c1808, Cheltenham, Gloucs Jane (unknown) c1808, Churchill, Oxon Wives of agricultural labourers probably worked in the fields. But home working was common too. In Oxfordshire, glovemaking was a common female profession. "Gloveress" seems to be the feminine form of "Glover". [But a woman farmer was still called a farmer.]
Jane almost certainly died in Finstock in 1882, aged 71. The death was registered in Chipping Norton (the district for Finstock), but the death certificate has not been checked.
Jane (unknown) c1822, Crick, Northants, England Keziah (unknown) c1781, Bloxham, Oxon, England Leah (unknown) c1798, Staffs? Probably born around 1790 to 1800 in East Staffordshire, she had a number of children with Thomas Kinston in the Rosliston area of Derbyshire over the period 1822 to 1835. She died in 1840 (probably in Rosliston, as the death was registered in Burton on Trent). She would have been about 40 to 50 perhaps Margaret (unknown) c1640, Gloucs? Margaret (unknown) c1820, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England Margaret (unknown) c1838, Newtown, Montgomeryshire, Wales Martha (unknown) c1800, Chiswick, Middx Martha (unknown) c1810, London, England Mary (unknown) c1680, Gloucs? Mary (unknown) 1718, Gloucs Mary (unknown) c1746, Oxon? Mary (unknown) c1750, Hants, England Mary (unknown) c1783, Hardwick, Bucks, England Mary (unknown) c1798, Worcs, England Mary (unknown) c1805, Exeter, Devon, England Mary Ann (unknown) c1797, Kildare, Ireland Mary was born in Ireland about 1797 or so, probably in Kildare Town (about 30 miles from Dublin) or Kildare County. She would have met her husband Richard during the period 1814 to 1817 when he was in that area (see 4th Dragoon Guard history). She would have then been 18 or 19 and he about 28. When he was injured, he was hospitalised, pensioned and returned to his place of birth (West Grinstead) with his new wife.
Mary was not shown as living with her husband Richard in any of the 1841, 1851, or 1861 censuses, when they were both alive. But they seem to have always lived close to each other.
It is possible that Mary met Richard after he was injured. The injury took place when he was serving near Limerick, which is nearly 100 miles from the town of Kildare. By contrast, the town of Kildare is only 30 miles from Kilmainham Hospital (where Richard was transferred after his injury, and subsequently returned to England from). Kildare is both a town and a county of course, and if she was born elsewhere in County Kildare, she may have been born as close as 10 miles from the hospital. So, whether she was born in County Kildare or the town of Kildare, she may have met him at the hospital. Alternatively, she met him before he was posted to Limerick — his previous service may have been nearer to Dublin and Kildare.
Mary Ann (unknown) c1819, Halesowen, Worcs Mary Ann (unknown) c1823, Great Barr, Staffs, England Mary Jane (unknown) c1843, England Phoebe (unknown) c1831, Padworth, Berks, England Ruth (unknown) c1722, Sussex?

We are lucky enough to have a record of her family in the 1821 census (from the Vicar's Book) which has survived. William Adams c1782, Long Wittenham, Berks, England 07/09/1783 Emma Jane Alder c1873, Leafield, Oxon It is an interesting challenge to discover Emma's parents. Her move from rural Oxfordshire to Lancashire is typical of the rural → urban migration of the time. Frederic Alder c1865, Stanton Harcourt, Oxon Frederick probably stayed in the Stanton Harcourt area when his father went north to work in the cotton industry. Frederick Alder c1854, Stanton Harcourt, Oxon George William Alder c1876, Clitheroe, Lancs Henry Alder c1869, Stanton Harcourt, Oxon William Alder c1835, Stanton Harcourt, Oxon William is mainly evidenced in this study by his two wives (Rachel and Sarah Anne) and their offspring. An example of difficulties arising from census records only being every 10 years. A lot can happen in that time. James Allan c1843, Chirton, Northumberland, England Although he died young, he died wealthy. The grant of probate of his estate valued it at less than £6000 — a collosal amount in 1878 (equivalent to several millions at todays values). An amazing career, given that (if the identification is correct) that he was a coal miner, son of a coal miner when he was 18!
His burial record gives his occupation as commission agent.

Despite some reports, he did not die on the voyage, but probably shortly afterwards. Rosa Barcham 1867, Kensington, London, England Born in England (Kensington, London) she left Liverpool on the City of Washington (Inman Line) and arrived in New York 23rd August 1870 before she was 3. Her mother married Septimus Charles Fleetwood after she discovered her husband had died (it is assumed, though no death record has yet been found). Rosa used the family name Fleetwood, though Septimus Charles Fleetwood was not her father. Albert Barrett c1896, Willenhall, Staffs, England Alice Maud Barrett 1890, Willenhall, Staffs, England Edward Barrett c1894, Willenhall, Staffs, England Edward was living in Price St, Smethwick in 1911 (when he was 16 or 17) and his future wife Phillis was living in the nearby Exeter Rd (she was 19). They must have met around that time. He and his wife were resident at 73 Moilliett St in 1918 (as were Agnes and James Busby). This building was owned by Harriet Elizabeth Busby (who was thus on the electoral role as a property owner) and may have been run as a shop. Elizabeth Barrett c1840, Standlake, Oxon Emily Barrett c1895, Willenhall, Staffs, England Ernest Barrett c1890, Willenhall, Staffs, England Flora Barrett c1893, Birmingham, Warks, England Frederick Barrett 1900, Willenhall, Staffs, England Lucy Barrett 1920, Smethwick, Staffs, England Shadrack Barrett 1893, Willenhall, Staffs, England William Henry Barrett c1859, Bilston, Staffs, England Wilson Barrett c1888, Willenhall, Staffs, England Winifred M Barrett 1921, Smethwick, Staffs, England Eliza Barry c1820, Marylebone, London Ellen Barry c1823, Coity, Glam, Wales 24/08/1823 Born in South Wales, it appears she and her sister Eliza moved to London sometime around 1840. In the 1891 census, they are living together with Ellen's husband. Michael Barry c1790, Ireland George Bastock c1816, Stretton on Dunsmore, Warwickshire, England 25/02/1816 Maria Bastock c1818, Stretton on Dunsmore, Warks 28/06/1818 William Bastock c1792, Chesterton, Warks 27/09/1792 William Bastock c1813, Stretton on Dunsmore, Warks, England 19/09/1813 John Beards 1812, Southam, Warks, England 22/03/1812 David Beck c1811, Cassington, Oxon 15/10/1811 David Beck 1848, Cumnor, Berks Harriett Beck c1861, Northmoor, Oxon Harriett is probably Rachel's illegitimate daughter. John Beck c1832, Cumnor, Berks Rachel Beck 1835, Cumnor, Berks 20/12/1835 Robert Beck c1805, Cassington, Oxon 03/03/1805 Sarah Beck c1845, Cumnor, Berks Thomas Beck c1807, Cassington, Oxon 31/05/1807 Thomas seems to have had a long and interesting life. Born in Cassington, Oxfordshire, he seems to have only moved the few miles to Cumnor, Berkshire.
In 1851, he as renting a cottage and garden in the village, and a poor rate was levied on him as a result (transcription of source document).
A probable death of Thomas was registered in Abingdon (the register office for Cumnor), Berks, April–June 1882, aged 77 (his true age would have been 75).

In later years, she lived in Hobicus Road, where her mother had lived for some time.

Caroline Biggs c1831, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England Caroline spent 62 years of her life with William from when she was about 21 in 1853 to her death at the age of 84. George Biggs c1874, Harrow Weald, Middx James Billings c1746, Charlton Kings, Gloucs 20/09/1747 Mary Billings 1782, Bishop's Cleeve, Gloucs 21/04/1782 Richard Billings c1720, Gloucs, England Harriet Bishop c1827, Greenwich, Kent, England Mary Ann Bishop c1854, Brighton, Sussex, England Prudence Blackford 1858, Tysoe, Warks 07/11/1858 Ann Blake c1699, Shipley, Sussex 18/01/1700 Laura Emily Blake 1855, Hampden, Bucks, England Matilda Blake 1795, Hullavington, Wilts 23/04/1795 Catherine Blakey c1757, Seaham?, Co Durham John Blick c1773, Wilts?

Elizabeth Bond c1806, Oxon, England Elizabeth Boss c1793, Banbury, Oxon, England 26/04/1793 Hannah Boss c1795, Banbury, Oxon, England 02/09/1795 John Boss c1766, Oxon John Boss c1800, Banbury, Oxon, England 14/03/1800 Kezia Boss c1803, Banbury, Oxon 20/03/1805 Kezia seems to have lived in Banbury all her life, outliving her husband William and dieing at about the age of 79-80. Although her age at death was given as 82 (making her year of birth 1800), it is more likely she was born about 1804 and baptised in March 1805, y looking at the baptisms of her siblings. This would mean she was probably only 20 when she was married in 1824; although she was not recorded as being married 'with consent of parents', it was quite common to say you wrre 21 to avoid this need for permissioin when you were only 20. If that is the case, she would have been about 78 when she died. Samuel Boss c1788, Banbury, Oxon, England 10/11/1788 Caroline Botting c1820, Lindfield, Sussex, England 19/03/1820 Sarah Botting c1755, Shipley, Sussex 19/01/1755 Annie Bourn 1868, Balcombe, Sussex 25/10/1868 Elizabeth Bourn 1866, Balcombe, Sussex 30/09/1866 Ellen Bourn c1864, Balcombe, Sussex 28/02/1864 Fanny Bourn c1878, Balcombe, Sussex 26/05/1878 George Bourn c1838, Balcombe, Sussex George seems to have been a Sussex farm labourer all his life. In 1911, he was living with his wife of 49 years and one of their daughters in a 3 room dwelling in Slaugham, Sussex.

Notable in that her first husband William 'disappears' and she marries again (possibly bigamously, as we have no record of William's death and, indeed, he may himself have also have married again). This type of 'informal divorce' did occur in the nineteenth century, as divorce was not an option (except, rarely, through act of parliament; thus only an option for few).

He trained as a carpenter, and became a cabinet maker. After John married in 1880, he lived with his sister and brother-in-law (the Copperwheats) before he emigrated to the US (New Haven, Conneticut) about 1884. He died in New Haven Conneticut in 1902. His sister Rebecca also ended up in New Haven. John Cargill Brough c1838, England John Harry Brough 1881, Battersea, Surrey, England 'Jack' (as he was referred to in later life) emigrated with his parents to the USA in about 1884. Initially, he was in New Haven, Connecticut, but he moved to Florida about 1911, and remained to the end of his life.

Rebecca's brother John also ended up in Connecticut.

Very little is known about Thomas: we know he married a Mary Embleton in 1813 and had a son (William) shortly afterwards. He was reported to have been a miller at that time and when William was christened in Long Benton, Northumberland, the family's residence was given as "Redhouse"; this probably refers to Benton Park in the partish, which was often referred to in this way.
The childhood of WIlliam (Thomas's son) was reported by William to his son Joshua Jordan Brough to have been spent in the Longbenton/Killingworth area. So he must have been there until circa 1825 at least. Presumably, so was his father Thomas, but there are no records (burials, births) to confirm this known as yet.
Thomas Brough 1784, Seaton, Co Durham, England 27/02/1785 It would appear that Thomas spent his whole life in the parish of Seaham, marrying relatively late, anmd having two sons. He followed in his father's footsteps by being a farmer (and a miller at some time). He lived to be almost 100 years old (just 3 months short of 100, in fact).
In the grant of probate to his son John, Thomas is described as a miller, and John as a farmer, both of Seaham Mill.
Thomas Brough c1788, Easington, Co Durham, England 02/12/1788 Thomas Brough c1792, Numbers Garth, Bishopwearmouth, Co Durham, England 01/08/1792 Thomas Brough 1801, Northumberland, England 24/12/1809 Thomas Brough 1807, Lumley, Co Durham, England 03/01/1808 Thomas Brough 1808, Lumley, Co Durham, England 09/10/1808 Thomas is a well-known engineer, and there is extensive correspondence in the National Archives about his appointment as a coal mining engineer in Nova Scotia, on the island of Cape Breton. He left England in June/July 1839. In NCB I/JB 1747, it is indicated that he left with 4 children, aged 7, 5, 4, and 3 months; the eldest 2 were also living with their parents in Gateshead in the 1851 census, but the younger are missing (presumably they died in Nova Scotia). Thomas Brough 1809, Easington, Co Durham, England 31/01/1810 Thomas Brough c1817, Staffs, England Transported to Australia in 1838, after being sentenced to 7 years transportation at Stafford Quarter Sessions. Date of birth and place of birth conjectural, but he was a boatman. Included here for purposes of elimination. Thomas Brough c1823, Hawthorn, Co Durham, England 25/12/1823 Thomas Brough c1824, Seaton, Co Durham, England 14/03/1824 Thomas Brough 1839, Newcastle under Lyme, Staffs, England Thomas Brough 1853, Seaham Park, Co Durham, England Thomas Brough 1855, Sunderland, Co Durham, England Thomas Brough 1861, South Lambeth, Surrey, England 21/07/1861 Thomas Brough 1869, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England Thomas Thomson Brough c1840, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada Thomasin Brough c1793, Ewehurst, Co Durham, England 22/09/1793 Victor Octavius Brough 1893, West Haven, Connecticut, USA Whitfield Brough c1770, England Birth not known, but from 1794 (marriage) associated with Monkwearmouth or Monkwearmouth Shore. He may have been a master mariner. William Brough c1735, Thornley, co Durham, England 29/03/1735 William Brough c1749, Co Durham, England A Yeoman farmer, who seems to have lived all his long life in Lumley Ridings. William Brough c1759, Seaham?, Co Durham William Brough c1766, Northumberland?, England William Brough 1772, Numbers, Bishopwearmouth, Co Durham, England 02/08/1772 William Brough c1778, Lumley Ridings, Co Durham, England 02/02/1778 William Brough 1797, Northumberland, England 01/05/1798 William Brough c1797, Numbers Garth, Bishopwearmouth, Co Durham, England 08/10/1797 William Brough 1814, Redhouse, Longbenton, Northumberland 31/07/1814 William was born in the Long Benton (now Longbenton) area north of Newcastle. He later reported (to his son) that he spent his early years in the Long Benton/Killingworth area. In adult life (as can be seen from his marriage, census returns and places of birth/deaths of his children) he moved around England, notably taking a job (in the late 1840s) with the Great North Railway, and eventually settling in West London: first working as a grocer and then opening up a laundry. Much of what we know of his later life comes from what he told his son JJ Brough in the 1880s and recounted by JJ to his son in the late 1940s. For example, in a 1948 letter (exact transcription):
He was a voracious reader and studied Theology.
He married young and referred used to call us his "bakers dozen". I infer that he had 13 children, 12 by his first wife But I can only account for 8 believing the other 4 to die young as it was a matter of course to breed rapidly in those times knowing 1 in 3 would die. We have altered all that.
In all probability it was through necessity of needing more money that caused him in middle age to leave the GNR and start a Laundry in Latimer Road, Shepherds Bush. I sincerely hope that washing linen brought in more money than engine driving but from what I know of the business I am inclined to doubt it.
By 1889 he was seemingly suffering a type of dementure, losing his mind and his way home. Inevitably the laundry business failed and Aunt Sarah bailed him out to the tune of £50. But it was clear things couldn't go on indefinately and so we mortgaged Stanly House in 1893. A year or so afterwards William took to his bed and died 5/1/1898 of abdominal obstruction the same problem that affected Aunt Elizabeth in 1894.
Probate for his estate to the value of £225 10s was granted to his wife Mary (née Jordan).
GNR ran the line to York (wikipedia entry for GNR) and also operated over NER lines, northward to Scotland (wikipedia entry for the NER). He also seems to have run a shop for a short time in London, before opening the laundry (see census); something not mentioned by his son JJ Brough. It seems he was (like many from the Newcastle area) an engineer. We do not know how or where he met his first wife, but we do know that in 1839 the couple were in Paddington (London) and in 1841 they were in Lane End, Longton, Staffs, where William worked as an engineer in a pottery company. In 1843, he was in Morpeth, Northumberland, working as an engineman.
The family's location in 1841 is confirmed by the birth registration of his daughter Mary Ann Brough (1841-2), whose mother's name is given as Tomalin, and place of birth as Longton. So (like his great grandson Michael) he worked at least for some time in the pottery industry in Longton!
William Brough c1816, Flinton Hill, Penshaw, Co Durham, England 28/04/1816 William seems to have quickly become successful as a paper mill proprietor, but either his business or health failed in the 1860s, and he died in 1869 at the relatively young age of 53. William Brough c1823, Hetton, Co Durham, England 15/06/1823 William Brough 1826, Little St Thomas Apostle's, City of London, London, England 28/07/1826 Known as an author, he was married twice, and died, leaving a widow and several children. William Brough c1827, Hawthorn, Co Durham, England 28/10/1827 William Brough 1834, Hoxton, London, England 21/09/1834 William Brough c1851, Monkwearmouth, Co Durham, England William Brough 1853, Westminster, London, England William was a musician, living in London all his life. He never married. William Edward Brough 1867, Exeter, Devon, England William Francis Brough 1797, Byker, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England 20/09/1797 William Francis Brough c1797, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England 20/09/1797 William Hart Brough c1830, Hawthorn, Co Durham, England 05/09/1830 William Henry Brough 1850, Tonbridge, Kent, England William Russell Brough 1868, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England William Thomas Brough 1832, Penshaw Staiths, Penshaw, Co Durham, England 04/03/1832 William was born the son of a well-known mining engineer in County Durham. At the age of 7, he went to Nova Scotia, when his father was appointed as a mining engineer consultant. He returned to England with his father and family some time before 1851 and followed his father's engineering profession. He seems to have been successful at it, ending up in Devon, where he retired on independent means with his wife Caroline (whom he was married to for over 60 years). After Caroline died, he appears to have lived with the one son (William Edward) that outlived them. William Thomlin Brough 1856, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England Edward Brown c1814, Co Durham?, England Mary Catharine Brown c1848, Sunderland, Co Durham, England Mary married a (probably) mariner George Higgs, after his first wife died. He too died, after they had been married less than 3 years. Nevertheless, she brought up his daughters as her own, and the youngest was still living with her (aged 30) in 1911. It is interesting to note that although her step-daughter was a teacher, Mary completed the 1911 census return herself — clearly and without error; she must have been well-educated.
Mary lived at 22 Cleveland Rd from before the 1901 census up to her death (place of death given in probate records).
Martha Browne c1788, Donhead, Wilts 06/03/1789 Martha seems to have spent the last 40 years or so of her life in Romsey, Hampshire. How and why she got there from her birthplace in Wiltshire (about 33 miles away) is a bit of a puzzle. Maybe she met her husband in Salisbury (about half way between their birth places). Charles Frederick Brunton c1822, North St, Brighton, Sussex, England 16/02/1823 Frederick (as he was probably referred to) was born in Lewes, and was a printer in adult life. He married in 1844, but was absent from home in the 1851 census. He may have been working away from home, or he may have left his wife (who said she was married, although he was not present). He seems to have been living with someone else in Chester as a common-law wife in 1861. His whereabouts from October 1850 (when he was in Southover, Lewes, as evidenced by the christening of his daughter Eliza) to 1861 and subsequently are unknown. Charles Frederick Brunton c1845, Market St, Brighton, Sussex, England 09/03/1845 Edward Brunton 1853, Lewes, Sussex, England Eliza Harriett Brunton 1850, Southover, Lewes, Sussex, England 06/10/1850 Martha Jane Brunton 1846, Regent Hill, Brighton, Sussex 21/06/1846 Born and brought up in Brighton, she married Henry Woolven and moved to South London Mary Ann Brunton 1849, Lewes, Sussex, England William Brunton c1790, Sussex, England William Mark Brunton 1847, Southover, Lewes, Sussex, England 23/01/1848 Rhoda Bunce 1887, Reading, Berks, England Robert Burchum c1845, Norfolk, England Jesse Burden 1834, Wallop, Hants, England 19/10/1834 Walker Burden c1817, Broadwater, Sussex, England William Henry Burden c1843, Broadwater, Sussex, England Avery Burditt 1852, Crewe, Cheshire, England Henry Burditt c1820, Northants?, England Sarah Ann Burditt c1854, Crewe, Cheshire, England Elizabeth Buredg 1750, Horsham, Sussex 26/12/1750 Benjamin Burgum 1739, Ruardean, Gloucs 28/10/1739 Hanah Burgum 1730, Ruardean, Gloucs 01/11/1730 John Burgum 1737, Ruardean, Gloucs 13/02/1737 Mary Burgum 1722, Longhope, Gloucs 12/11/1722 Sarah Burgum 1727, Ruardean, Gloucs 04/06/1727 Thomas Burgum 1721, Longhope, Gloucs 18/11/1721 Thomas Burgum 1734, Ruardean, Gloucs 10/02/1734 Hannah Burton c1744, Halesowen?, Worcs 04/11/1744 Albert Busby c1836, Northmoor, Oxon Albert Busby 1856, Birmingham, Warks 23/10/1858 Albert George Busby 1879, Broom, Warks 28/11/1880 Alfred Busby c1838, Northmoor, Oxon Alfred Busby c1848, Northmoor, Oxon Alfred Henry Busby c1865, Ladywood, Birmingham, Warks Amelia Busby c1812, Northmoor, Oxon Amy Busby 1808, Cumnor, Berks Ann Busby 1834, Bodicote, Oxon 11/11/1838 Augustine Busby 1819, Leafield, Oxon 28/11/1819 Augustine is a well-documented character from the Leafield/Northmoor/Finstock area (Oxfordshire). He dies at age 49, a typical (maybe even good) life expectancy for an Oxford agricultural labourer at that time. Augustine Busby 1843, Finstock, Oxon A rural agricultural labourer, following in his father's footsteps. However, like so many rural Oxford workers, he ended up moving away from Oxfordshire. Whether he moved and then met his wife, or met her and then moved to marry her is unclear. It is also unclear whether any of his wife's pre-existing children were, in fact his.
Augustine seems to have commonly used the name George in christening of his children and marriage. Maybe he thought Augustine was not 'religious'. He chose to use Augustine in dealings with the state and for several of his childrens' names.
Augustine Charles Busby 1896, Leafield, Oxon, England 20/09/1896 Barnewell Busby 1833, Leafield, Oxon 23/08/1833 Died in infancy (buried only a month after christening) Charles Busby 1808, Steeple Aston, Oxon Charles (or Chas, as his family called him) was a canal boatman Charles Busby c1839, Northmoor, Oxon Charles Busby c1841, Tipton, Staffs Charles Busby c1847, Leafield, Oxon Charles Busby c1865, Birmingham, Warks Edward Busby c1812, Banbury, Oxon Edward was a tailor (eventually a master tailor) living and working in the Banbury area.

Reported by Agnes Busby (wife) to this database's editor; all life certificates in editor's possession.
When Agnes and James were first married they lived at 73 Moilliett Street (then in Smethwick, now Birmingham, B18). The owner of that dwelling (and thus on the electoral roll) was his mother Harriett Elizabeth Busby (seen as Harriett or Elizabeth Busby in several electoral rolls). This property may have been a shop.

John Busby c1807, Northmoor, Oxon, England 18/10/1807 John Busby c1808, Northmoor, Oxon John was born 200 years ago. It is interesting to try to trace his family forwards, to see what happened to a typical Oxfordshire working class (labouring) agricultural family.

In spite of the census entries, it is clear she was baptised as Sarah Anne's Busby's illegitimate daughter (when she married, she gave her father as William Alder, but this is unlikely; see notes). Phillis Busby 1891, Smethwick, Staffs Phillis was born in Smethwick and spent the early years of her life living near Victoria Park in Smethwick. Her future husband Edward was living nearby in the 1911 census, when they were both in their late teens. After they married, they lived with her brother James and his wife Agnes at 73 Moilliett Street, Smethwick. This property was owned by Phillis's and James mother Harriett Busby who owned the property (which may have been run as a shop). Phylllis Busby 1888, Leafield, Oxon, England 18/11/1888 Rachel Busby c1795, Northmoor, Oxon, England 26/04/1795 Richard Busby 1841, Northmoor, Oxon Robert Busby 1813, Leafield, Oxon 21/03/1813 Robert Busby c1823, Marton, Warks Robert Busby 1841, Finstock, Oxon Rose Busby c1850, Hook Norton, Oxon Born in Oxfordshire. Rose moved to Birmingham with her parents to Aston (now part of Birmingham, but then separate) and then to Balsall Heath (then part of Kings Norton, Worcs, but now part of Birmingham). She was in Balsall Heath from about 1881 to the end of her life. For many years, she lived next door to her parents in Tindall St. Rose Harriet Busby 1893, Smethwick, Staffs Rose lived well into the 20th century. Remembered as "Aunty Rose".

Born May 1841 and probably met William Alder in Stanton Harcourt when she was in service there. She married him in 1873, after his wife died. They went to Clitheroe (Lancashire) to work in the cotton industry, and some of Sarah's family also went with them, including Phyllis Busby, who was almost certainly Sarah Anne's illegitimate daughter. This is a typical mid 19th century move from the Oxfordshire countryside to an urban employment.

William Busby 1839, Northmoor, Oxon Another of the many William Busbys in Oxfordshire. William Busby c1839, Leafield, Oxon This is the William Busby known to have been born and brought up in Oxfordshire. His father was Augustine Busby. His whereabouts after 1861 are unknown, as is the place and date of his death (his wife reported he was alive in 1871). William Busby c1841, (on ship), Irish Sea?, (at sea) William Busby is James's father. In the only two census records we have for him (1891, 1901) he gave his place of birth as the Irish Sea circa 1841. But his whereabouts from 1841 to 1888 are a mystery. He may be the same William as one from Oxfordshire (but then, what was he doing in the Irish Sea?); see notes below.
His wife Harriett indicated (in 1911) census that he was deceased and that she had been married for 22 years; that would make his death late 1910 or early 1911.
Possible death recorded in Kings Norton in October-December 1905 (6c, p 207). Under investigation.

She seems to have spent most of her life in the Bristol/Somerset area, possibly teaching.

She then moved to Aldershot circa 1897 and lived there unitil she died (probably in a nursing home in Farnham, Surrey) at the age of 86.
Her husband Jesse had spent some of his early years in Winterslow (he was there in the 1841 census), which is where Isabella's mother Harriet came from. Maybe Isabella and Jesse were very distantly related.

After Sarah died, Harriett and Joshua lived together and had several children. No record of an actual marriage ceremony between Joshua and Harriett has yet been found, and we do not know whether a marriage ceremony ever occurred. At the time, Canon law prohibited such a marriage, though it did sometimes occur (e.g. Matthew Boulton). From 1835, it was specifically illegal, and the law prohibiting it was not repealed until 1907. So perhaps we can assume they never married.
Like Sarah, Harriett died young, shortly after giving birth. In the case of Harriet, she gave birth to Ellen Jordan in June 1846. Ellen was buried 16/07/1846, aged 5 weeks, and Harriet was buried ten days later.
Sarah Eagles 1799, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey 28/12/1799 Born (1799) and buried (1833) in Kingston-on-Thames. In her short life she married and lived in London, and had several children. She almost certainly died in childbirth or shortly after, with a burial of a Sarah Jorden (aged 33) in Kingston on Thames 17/11/1833 (where her abode was given as St George's, Hanover Square) following the birth of her daughter Harriett on 11/11/1833. This correlates well with her putative birth there in Dec 1799; no Jordans/Jordens are known in Kingston besides her. So she was buried where she was christened.

Very little is known about Mary, besides her marriage and the birth of her son William. The marriage was 'with consent of parents'; as Thomas was described as a Miller, it is likely he was over 21 and Mary was not. She would thus have been at least 12 and less than 21. As most aged 19 or 20 would probably conveniently forget their exact age, we might assume she was 16 to 18, making her year of birth about 1796, with absolute earliest and latest DOBs 19/10/1792 and 18/10/1801.

Although he never married, doubtless he and Hannah were at least companions over the years after she was widowed in 1876. Although he was not lodging with the family in 1871, he seems to have lived/lodged with her from 1881 to his death in 1906 at the age of 77. Mary Ann Farrow 1842, Aller, Somerset, England Elizabeth Ann Ferris 1893, Chadderton, Lancs William Henry Ferris 1858, Pershore, Worcs Septimus C Fleetwood c1842, England Born in England, he emigrated to the USA in 1870 (travelling steerage, arriving New York 23/08/1870), and married Rebecca Barcham (née Brough) whom he had met on the voyage and was (reportedly) widowed about the time of her emigration. He was naturalised in 1884, and died in New Haven Connecticut.
He rose to prominence in the New Haven Railroad Company, as described in the New York Times:
SEPTIMUS C FLEETWOOD ——— Dies at 85 After 58 years With the
New Haven Railroad.
Special to The New York Times.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., Nov. 13. —
The death of Septimus C. Fleetwood, at his home in West Haven today, removed a unique railroad figure. Mr. Fleetwood, who was 85 years old, had been for fifty-eight years in the accounting department of the New Haven Railroad system, was Treasurer of the steamship department of the railroad, and was an authority on railroad conditions existing when he entered the service of the line in 1870. The New York terminus was then on the site of the Old Madison Square Garden. Mr Fleetwood moved to the Grand Central station in 1872 and to New Haven Oct. 1, 1887.
His knowledge of early railroading was constantly drawn upon by department heads for reference purposes.
The funeral services will be held tomorrow at 1 o'clock. Burial will be at Evergreen Cemetary.

She gave her address as 89 Walls Green Rd, Sheldon, B'ham. 26. She said she was a housewife, so was presumably still married (just a guess, perhaps) and her age at that time of 66 is consistent with her year of birth, as she was born Jan/Fen/Mar 1883 (i.e. she would have been 66 earlier in 1949.
Kate almost certainly died in Apr/Mar/Jun 1964, when she would have been 81 — the age reported at the death of a Alice K Reddall in Birmingham.

Elizabeth Hobbs 1787, Neithrop, Oxon 17/10/1787 Ellen Hobbs 1866, Aston, Warks 08/12/1867 Emily Charlotte Hobbs c1828, Holloway, London Emma Hobbs 1824, Banbury, Oxon 21/04/1824 Emma Hobbs 1829, Banbury, Oxon 03/07/1829 Emma was born in Banbury, but like most of her siblings moved away, first to Northamptonshire, and then to Staffordshire with her husband Francis Wood. All of their children seem to have been born in Staffordshire, but they moved as a family (except her eldest daughter) to Knowl Hill, Berkshire, where she remained for the rest of her life.
Emma had 7 children and many (at least 31, maybe as many as 50) grandchildren who would have been alive at the time of her death.
Esther Hobbs 1866, Aston, Warks Fanny Hobbs 1836, Banbury, Oxon 17/08/1836 Fanny Hobbs 1863, Aston, Warks 06/12/1863 Born in Aston, she married and died young. In the 1911 census, Edward (her late husband) indicated they had 7 children, of whom only 3 were still alive in 1911. Fanny Hobbs 1887, Aston, Warks, England George Hobbs 1827, Banbury, Oxon 16/12/1827 George (and his brother and sister) left Banbury, where their family had been for some time and went to Aston. Typical of mid nineteenth-century migration from the rural workplace to the towns. One of a number of sons from the same family that became maltsters. George Hobbs 1843, Neithrop, Oxon 01/10/1843 George Hobbs 1856, Aston, Warks 22/06/1856 Born in Aston, George appears to have spent at least the first 35 years of his life there (he 'disappears' after 1891), working as an engineering fitter in a factory (or factories). Although he married twice, it appears there were no children; at least, none that survived infancy. Hannah Hobbs 1832, Banbury, Oxon 05/12/1832 Harriet Elizabeth Hobbs 1859, Aston, Warks 08/05/1859 Unlike her husband William, Harriett's life is well-documented. She had five children who lived to majority, and one (name as yet unknown) who died as an infant. We have a portrait of Harriett and her husband William. Although Harriett spent all her life in Aston (Birmingham) or Smethwick, both her parents came from a rural background: her father George from Banbury and her mother Frances (Fanny) from Bewdley.
After her husband died, Harriett owned property (notably 73 Moilliett St), where she may have run a shop. As an owner of property, she was on the electoral roll.
Harriett Hobbs 1819, Banbury, Oxon 05/09/1819 Harry Hobbs c1856, Aston, Warks James Hobbs 1785, Neithrop, Oxon 31/03/1785 James Hobbs 1809, Banbury, Oxon 02/07/1809 James Hobbs 1850, Banbury, Oxon, England James Hobbs c1857, Aston, Warks 17/05/1857 Jane Hobbs 1822, Banbury, Oxon 20/11/1822 John Hobbs c1726, Oxon John Hobbs 1746, Bodicote, Oxon 17/08/1746 John Hobbs c1771, Medmenham, Bucks, England 10/02/1771 John Hobbs 1780, Milcombe, Oxon 02/07/1780 John appears to have spent the first year or so of his life in the Bloxham/Milcombe area, then moving to Neithrop, and Banbury about 1800. He spent the rest of his life there as far as we know, although his whereabouts in the 1851 census are unknown.
John was married twice; he had at least 6 children by his first wife, and 12 by his second wife. One of his children (James) emigrated to the USA, and worked as a maltster. Joseph and George (sons from his second marriage) also became maltsters (in Aston/Birmingham) and John was himself a maltster as well as a labourer (the malting work may have been seasonal). Brewing was an important industry in 19th century Banbury. He lived to a great age for an early 19th century working-class man (over 80). Obviously an interesting man, reflecting what was happening in the Banbury area in the early 19th century.
John Hobbs 1816, Banbury, Oxon 18/01/1816 John seems to have spent most of his life in or near Banbury/Neithrop (Backley, Northants is just over 10 miles away). He married late, but after having three children, he and his wife seem to have split up, living separately (but close by) for many years. Joseph Hobbs 1796, Neithrop, Oxon 30/12/1796 Joseph Hobbs 1821, Banbury, Oxon 17/06/1821 Joseph Hobbs 1825, Banbury, Oxon 22/11/1825 Joseph Hobbs was born and brought up in Banbury, then moved to Aston with his brother and sister between 1841 and 1851 and became (like several in his family) a maltster. Typical of the rural to urban migration of the time.
After he married in late 1853, he stayed in Aston.
Joseph Hobbs 1851, Neithrop, Oxon 18/03/1851 Lucy Hobbs 1867, Aston, Warks 08/12/1867 Mabel Hobbs 1889, Birmingham, Warks, England Martha Hobbs 1813, Banbury, Oxon 18/11/1813 Mary Hobbs 1748, Bodicote, Oxon 06/11/1748 Mary Hobbs 1807, Banbury, Oxon 25/01/1807 Mary Hobbs 1845, Banbury, Oxon 06/10/1845 Mary Ann Hobbs c1827, Adderbury, Oxon, England Mary Ann Hobbs 1846, Banbury, Oxon 04/08/1846 Mary Ann Hobbs 1846, Neithrop, Oxon, England Richard Hobbs 1793, Neithrop, Oxon 01/09/1793 Samuel Hobbs 1757, Broughton, Oxon 05/06/1757 Sarah Ann Hobbs 1848, Neithrop, Oxon 18/08/1848 Sarah Ann Hobbs 1852, Neithrop, Oxon, England Sydney Hobbs 1907, Bordesley Park Rd, Birmingham, Warks, England 06/02/1907 Thomas Hobbs 1790, Banbury, Oxon 28/11/1790 Wilfred Hobbs 1884, Aston, Warks, England William Hobbs 1750, Bodicote, Oxon 14/10/1750 William Hobbs 1782, Banbury, Oxon 13/02/1782 William Hobbs 1842, Neithrop, Oxon 19/07/1842 William Hobbs 1860, Aston, Warks 17/02/1861 Born in Aston, William initially copied his father by being a maltster, but soon changed and worked as a striker (metal trade) and engineer. He married at 22 and had 4 children, all of whom survived to adulthood. Thomas Robinson Hobson 1824, Newbottle, Co Durham, England 08/12/824 Ellen Lucy Jane Hodges 1862, Cheltenham, Gloucs Ellen seems to have never married (in the 1891, 1901, 1911 and censuses, she was living with her younger brother). In the 1871 census, she was an inpatient in a hospital. William Hodges c1827, Nailsea, Somerset Susannah Holden 1843, West Bromwich, Staffs Married and widowed young, her second marriage lasted at least 42 years (she was still with Henry in 1911). She clearly had many children, but it is perhaps unlikely that all the children shown as her children in some censuses are hers; at least some were probably grandchildren. James Hollington c1847, England Ruth Simmonds second husband, reported (by JJ Brough) to have been a Baptist minister when they married late in life. As there were several James Hollington (usual spelling; see notes) births registered around 1847, it has not yet been possible to determine who James was. John Thomas Holloway 1910, Smethwick, Staffs Dorothy Holmes c1765, Lumley Ridings, Co Durham, England 06/10/1765 Jane Holmes c1767, Lumley Ridings, Co Durham, England 06/12/1767 Robert Holmes c1740, England Robert Holmes c1769, Lumley Ridings, Co Durham, England 29/07/1770 Caroline Holyfield c1852, Finstock, Oxon Joseph Honnor 1838, Enfield Lock, Middx 13/05/1838 William Thomas Honnor 1811, Aldgate, Middx 12/01/1812 Born in London, he spent most of his life as a gun maker in Enfield. Both his first and second marriages were to Elizabeths. The second Elizabeth may have been a widow of another Honnor although the William in that marriage declared his father to be Joseph, not James. Bergman Honour 1879, New York City, New York, USA Elizabeth Honour 1871, New York City, New York, USA William Honour c1841, Enfield?, Middx William and his wife emigrated to the US in 1870 or 1871. He died (on the evidence of US census records) between 1880 and 1900. Elizabeth Hontsey c1767, Sussex, England Lucy Hooper c1851, Taynton, Gloucs Martha Howitt c1820, Crick, Northants, England Alfred Charles Huffell 1883, Battersea, Surrey, England Elizabeth Hughes c1837, Enfield, Middx George Hughes c1798, Worcs, England Julia Hughes 1845, Cheltenham, Gloucs, England Julia was illegitimate, but used her stepfather's William Hart's family name; it is not clear whether he was her natural father. Possibly not, as she may have been brought up by her maternal grandparents (she was with them in the 1851 census).
She appears to have lived in Cheltenham all her life.

Martha Ann Johns 1846, Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales Mary Johnson c1797, Shadforth, Co Durham, England 24/12/1797 Tom Ward Jolly 1878, Gateshead, Co Durham, England When his father died, Tom went into an orphanage (as seen in the 1891 census), but when his mother remarried, he again lived with her (see 1901 census). Tom himself died young. William Henry Jolly 1855, Ford, Co Durham, England Alfred Jones c1862, Cheltenham, Gloucs Allen Jones 1789, Swindon, Gloucs 28/06/1789 Allen Jones c1822, Cheltenham, Gloucs Born in Cheltenham, and trained as a wheelwright. By 1844, he was practising as a carpenter and lived in Tewksebury Rd, Cheltenham (Harper's Cheltenham Directory and Guide 1844, shown as Jones, Allen, referenced at http://www.cheltenham4u.co.uk/community/familyhistory_searchresult.asp?txtSurname=carpenterMoved to West Bromwich in the 1870s. Died sometime between 1891 and 1901.
He was living at 43 White Hart Row, the same address as his wife Rebeccah. This road is now partially destroyed and known as White Hart St.
Caroline Jones c1841, Clifford, Hereford, England 14/11/1841 Caroline Emily Jones c1856, Cheltenham, Gloucs The daughter of a wheelwright (Allen Jones) from rural Cheltenham. The family came to the West Bromwich area (then referred to as Handsworth in the census) sometime in the 1870s. When married, she lived mostly within a short distance of Victoria Park, Smethwick.
The 1911 census indicates Caroline had 9 children born alive and one of those had subsequently died).

She died a few days after giving birth to her 12th child. Selina Jones c1833, Swindon, Gloucs Thomas Jones c1766, Bloxham or Banbury, Oxon Thomas Jones c1803, Swindon, Gloucs 09/01/1803 Thomas Jones c1812, Claines, Worcs William Jones c1791, Swindon, Gloucs 18/09/1791 William Jones c1799, Banbury, Oxon William Jones c1843, Clifford, Hereford, England 03/12/1843 Alfred Jones? c1838, Swindon, Gloucs Eliza Jordain 1810, Marylebone, London 02/12/1810 Alice Annie Jordan 1858, 2 Priory St, Camden, London, England 25/09/1859 Ann Eliza Jordan 1810, Artillery St, Stepney, London 16/02/1810 Ann Elizabeth Jordan 1814, Bishopsgate, London 27/11/1814 Arthur Douglas Jordan 1888, Acton, Middx, England Charlotte Jordan c1811, England 30/12/1811 Charlotte Jordan 1853, 2 William's Terrace, Latymer Rd, North Kensington, London 14/08/1853 Charlotte was born in London. At the time of her marriage in 1881, both she and her husband were schoolteachers. After they married, they lived in Pewsey, Wiltshire.
Charlotte was obviously very close to her sister Martha, who lived with Charlotte (and her husband until he died) until their deaths in Sodbury, Gloucs in 1939. Charlotte and Martha had been together for 86 years!
Edmund Jordan c1789, Stanwell, Middx, England 20/09/1789 Edward Jordan 1812, England 08/03/1812 Elisabeth Jordan 1835, Marylebone, London, England Elizabeth never married, ending up running a laundry business on Berrymead Rd. After her death, it was run by Clara Keen, the daughter of her sister Louisa. Elizabeth Jordan c1793, Westminster, Middx, England 31/03/1793 Ellen Jordan c1830, Middx, England Nothing is known of Ellen after the 1841 census. It is likely that she died before the birth of the second Ellen Jordan (see notes). Ellen Jordan 1846, Henstridge Place, Marylebone, London, England Emma Sarah Jordan c1828, Belgravia, Middx, England Frederick Ernest Jordan 1881, Acton, Middx, England 08/03/1882 Harold Alfred Jordan 1890, Acton, Middx, England Harriet Jordan 1833, Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey 08/01/1834 Henry Charles Jordan 1877, Bethnal Green Workhouse, Bethnal Green, London, England 15/07/1877 Henry Joshua Jordan 1857, 2 Priory St, Camden, London, England 25/09/1859 Henry Joshua Jordan 1878, Shepherds Bush, Middx, England 08/03/1882 Joshua Jordan 1797, Marylebone, London 26/10/1797 Joshua was born in London and stayed close to his birthplace for the rest of his life. After his first wife Sarah died, he lived with her sister Harriett and they had several children. Joshua and Harriett never married as it was forbidden in Canon (church) law for a man to marry his deceased wife's sister at the time (this prohibition was removed in 1907). [Harriett kept a family bible, but this did not mention her sister, presumably for this reason.]
After Harriett died, Joshua married again, to Martha Cropp. This time, the marriage was 'official', as his wife was unrelated to his two earlier partners. Martha and Joshua were the witnesses at the Marriage of Martha's sister Charlotte 7th September 1849 and it is possible that Martha and Charlotte became a couple soon after Harriet's death in 1846, as Joshua had young children to care for. For example, Mary Jordan was only 8 when her mother died; it is significant that Mary is found with Martha's sister and husband and their young child in the 1851 census. Maybe she was looking after her young step-cousin Clara.
Joshua Jordan c1827, England Joshua Jordan c1832, Hanover Square, London Joshua was reported to be very close to his half-sister Mary Jordan, who (as Mary Brough) described him as 'my dear brother' to her son Joshua Jordan Brough. Laura Alicia Jordan 1883, Acton, Middx, England Leonard William Jordan 1879, Notting Hill, Middx, England 08/03/1882 Louisa Jordan c1837, Marylebone, London Maria Jordan 1808, Marylebone, London 19/02/1809 Martha Jordan 1851, 15 Cochrane Terrace, St Johns Wood, London 16/02/1851 Martha never married. She was obviously very close to her younger sister Charlotte and seems to have lived with her all her life, even after Charlotte married. After Charlotte's husband Walter died in 1918, Charlotte and Martha stayed together until their deaths in in their 80s. Mary Jordan 1838, 22 Henry St, Marylebone, London Richard Jordan 1806, England 10/10/1806 Robert Cyril Jordan 1893, Acton, Middx, England Russell James Jordan 1885, Acton, Middx, England Samuel Jordan c1840, Marylebone, London Samuel seems to have lived in Henry Street for all of his short life. His address at burial was given as Henry St, P. J. (unknown meaning), confirming him as Joshua's son. Sarah Jordan c1823, England William Jordan c1772, London? William Jordan 1794, England 25/10/1794 William Jordan c1824, England Eliza Jordon c1826, Bishopsgate, London 23/07/1826 At this time, only known from her christening record. -- K -- Alfred Joshua Keen 1869, 4 Park Cottages, Latymer Rd, Hammersmith, Middx, England 26/05/1869 Anne Keen c1820, Bledlow, Bucks, England 02/03/1820 Anne Keen c1833, Bledlow Ridge, Bucks, England 12/05/1833 Benjamin Keen c1820, Bledlow Ridge, Bucks, England 29/10/1820 Clara Keen 1860, 4 Park Cottages, Latymer Rd, Hammersmith, Middx, England 10/02/1860 Eden Keen 1873, 4 Park Cottages, Latymer Rd, Hammersmith, Middx, England Eden was unmarried (and age recorded as 34) when she arrived in Montreal, Canada on the sailing ship Lake Eyrie 3rd May 1908. Her ultimate destination was given as Edmonton. Edward Francis Keen 1867, 4 Park Cottages, Latymer Rd, Hammersmith, Middx, England 28/08/1867 Edward Francis Keen 1876, 4 Park Cottages, Latymer Rd, Hammersmith, Middx, England 25/02/1876 Emigrated to the USA (New York) circa 1891 Emily Keen 1861, 4 Park Cottages, Latymer Rd, Hammersmith, Middx, England 12/06/1861 Emily was living in the same house as Harriett Fry in 1881. They moved to Brighton circa 1900 and ran a laundry business there, living there until they died.

William Keen c1818, Bledlow Ridge, Bucks, England 05/07/1818 William Jordan Keen c1872, 4 Park Cottages, Latymer Rd, Hammersmith, Middx, England Ellen Kellithorne c1856, Norwood, Surrey, England Widowed after only 5 years of marriage, Ellen moved from London to Brighton as a domestic cook, boarding her two young children in nearby Hove. By 1911, the family was back together, in a significant dwelling. She truly did well to overcome adversity.
Note that she is another of the 'Fry clan' who moved from London to Brighton. This was, of course, not unusual in the late 1800s.
Ann Mary Kemp 1830, Birmingham, Warks, England 27/09/1830 Thomas Kemp c1797, Warks, England Catharine Ann Kendall 1820, Marylebone, London 07/06/1820 Richard Kendall c1790, Middx?, England This is the father of the Catherine Ann Kendall who married Joseph Tomalin Mary Elizabeth Kidd c1832, Omskirk, Lancs, England 11/05/1832 Ann Kilworth c1806, Northants, England Emma Kinch 1857, Crick, Northants, England 07/02/1858 Jane Kinch 1853, Crick, Northants, England 27/03/1853 John Kinch 1813, Crick, Northants, England 16/01/1814 Mary A Kinch 1859, Crick, Northants, England 13/11/1859 George Henry King 1866, Southam, Warks, England 21/03/1867 Susieanna King 1861, Thornbury, Gloucs, England Elizabeth Kingston 1808, Middleton Cheney, Northants Elizabeth spent most of her life in or near Banbury/Neithrop. She was married twice, neither marriage lasting long: her first husband died young, and she seems to have separated from the second after a few years, both living within a mile or two of each other for many years. Fred Kingston 1870, Shenstone, Staffs Harry Kingston c1874, Shenstone, Staffs Joseph Kingston 1828, Rosliston, Derbys 13/04/1828 Born in a rural community (Rosliston, just South of Burton on Trent) in Derbyshire, Joseph spent the first few years of his life in typical rural jobs. In later years, he worked as a coal miner in the Cannock/Walsall area of Staffordshire, marrying Eliza Hobbs, who had moved to that area from Banbury, Oxfordshire. Simeon Kingston 1896, Walsall Wood, Staffs Harriett Edith Kingstone 1858, West Bromwich, Staffs Harriett was born in Staffs, UK, but emigrated to Australia. She was murdered by her son-in-law, who also killed his daughter Annie (whom Harriett had raised after her mother had died). She was fondly remembered by those who knew her in her 30 years in Queensland. She had experienced tragedy before her sad end, with several of her children dying and leaving young families.

Leah Kinston 1835, Rosliston, Derbys 08/03/1835 Mary Kinston 1825, Rosliston, Derbys 08/01/1826 Believed to have been married in 1849, probably to a James Reader. Thomas Kinston c1798, Derbys?

She appears to have children (Margaret and Henry) by her third husband Henry Smart at the age or 42 and 44. She lived until she was 77, and was buried just North of Ruardean and Walford in Upton Bishop. A remarkable woman!

[As her mother lived in Mill St before she was married, and then after she was married, it is more probable Georgina's situation was at least known to her family.] Hannah Prentice c1842, Kings Norton, Worcs When she married, Hannah signed her name, and was described as a spinster of full age, living on Cheapside. Her father was described as John Prentice, Gardener. A John Prentice attached his mark as witness; this is almost certainly her brother who was living with her (and their mother and step-father) in the 1861 census.

She was mostly brought up in Greenwich (specifically Plumstead perhaps; maybe Robert Street) near Woolwich where her faher was probably based; she may have been born in Kensington, where the family was around 1872–3. [The family's movements in London may be discovered by looking at her siblings records.]
Her family moved to the Aldershot/Farnborough area in the late 1870s, where her father probably died. After leaving the orphanage where their mother worked, she went into service in the same road. In 1892, she married another serviceman (who she probably met when he was working at Aldershot, maybe lodging nearby). She returned to her husband Samuel's birthplce area (South Staffordshire) in the mid 1890s and they had a many children.
Horace Wood Rockley 1870, Aldershot, Hants, England Joseph Rockley c1832, Edwinstowe, Notts, England Joseph seems spent most of his adult life in army service, which explains the wide movement of his family.

Ann Simmonds 1850, Tarring Neville, Sussex 27/01/1850 Harry Simmonds c1865, Eastbourne, Sussex, England Harry was reported by JJ Brough to FW Brough (both of whom knew him) in his 1947 letters to have been Ruth Symmonds illegitimate son, probably following an affair that Ruth had with an Italian waiter. This is consistent with his presence with his grandparents in Lewes in the 1871 census. So this seems to be certain. He was her illegitimate son.
On the face it, Harry was thus born in late 1862 or early 1863, in Eastbourne, where Ruth had been with her parents in the 1861 census. She may by then have been in service in Brighton. Certainly, there is a birth of a Henry Simmonds registered in Brighton in 1862. So she might have conceived the child in either Eastbourne of Brighton, and given birth at her parents house (common practice in those days), and then registered the birth in Brighton. We do not have the birth certificate to hand as yet to confirm this.
All the above seems plausible. Indeed, quite normal for mid 19th century illegitimate births. Except that Ruth was quite clearly only born in 1848, so she was only 22 or 23 by the time of the 1871 census — yet Harry was reported by his grandparents to be 8 at that time. Which would make Ruth only 14 or 15 when she gave birth! Possible, but very, very unusual. [Note that girls/women could marry once they were 12 until the 1920s in England. But births at such a young age were quite exceptional, and the mean age at which girls would have been able to conceive in 19th century England was probably about 16 (as opposed to the 12 to 13 of 2000).]
Given this discussion, the birth of Harry in 1862/3 must be considered putative as yet, until a birth certificate can be obtained.

He and his secon wife died within a few days of each other in 1846. Richard Simmons 1820, Tarring Neville, Sussex 17/12/1820 Susannah Simmons c1740, Sussex, England Thomas Simmons c1762, Sussex, England William Simmons c1794, Tarring Neville, Sussex 15/01/1794 Ann Simms c1837, Mathern, Monmouthshire, England Violet Simms 1883, Stafford, Staffs, England Born and married in Stafford. When she married, she moved into Weston Rd (number 50). She died at 58 Weston Rd, 54 years later. Presumably, she lived in the same road most of her life. Elizabeth Simpson c1792, Seaham, Co Durham, England Margaret Rose Simpson 1840, Kennington, Surrey, England 20/09/1840 Arthur Skinner c1891, England Stephen Smith Slightham 1881, Sunderland, Co Durham, England Edward Slow c1856, Lichfield, Staffs Ada Smart 1885, Smethwick, Staffs Agnes Smart 1894, 4 The Avenue, Handsworth, Staffs Agnes was born in Handsworth (on the border with Smethwick), but lived most of her life in Smethwick (except for the period 1916 to 1923, when she lived in Moilliett St, as did her sister-in-law Phillis). After her husband James died in 1925, she brought up her 3 children on her own (although her sister Amy and brother-in-law Jack helped by looking after the children whilst Agnes was at work). From 1923, she lived in the same house until the end of her life (from 1945) with her daughter Evelyn and son-in-law Frank) and their children.
Agnes's early working career was at Baxters, the Parade, Birmingham (national phone central 2036): a company that stocked and sold nuts, bolts and screws. It is clear that Baxters was a family company, supportive of its employees. There was an annual outing to the Baxters' home in Worcestershire. It also participated in the Girls Friendly Society scheme, and Agnes was in this scheme for 3 years until she got married (the GFS was only for single women at that time).
Agnes ran a 'treble twenties' club (for those over 60) at St Marks church and was a local community warden for Greenfield Rd, into her 80s. In connection with this, she was interviewed by ABC television (it is believed the programme was broadcast on 17th October 1965).
After she retired (from the MEB) at the age of 65, Agnes visited Canada to see her sister Carrie (Caroline) and nephew (Joe Bradbury). She died in Dudley Road Hospital on the 5th January 1986.
Agnes Emily Smart c1901, Smethwick, Staffs Amy Smart 1885, Smethwick, Staffs After Agnes Busby's (née Smart) husband James died, Amy looked after Ken, Evelyn, and Peggy Busby after school, while Agnes Busby was out at work. At that time, the Pernell's lived near George Bett's School (the actual building was pulled down in the second part of the 20th century). As well as looking after her sister's children, Amy also looked after her own children of course. All this in a couple of rooms, with no running water; water was obtained from a tap in the yard (which included a horse stable), as reported by E. Busby. After he came home from work (unloading coal from barges), her husband John ('Jack') walked the children home to Greenfield Rd.

Beatrice Smart 1890, West Bromwich, Staffs Caroline Emily Smart 1889, Smethwick, Staffs 31/05/1889 Caroline emigrated to Canada on the SS Montroy in 1924, departing Jan 29th 1924. She was to work for a friend of Miss A Sanders, Oakville, Toronto, who had paid for her passage. She travelled alone (with only £3), leaving her husband John at home in 75 Pool Rd. Her son joined her in 1929 (it is not clear about her husband, who was still living in Pool Road in 1929). She visited the UK at least once (see notes) and she was visited by her sister Agnes in the 1960s.

Henry Smart c1826, Cricklade, Wilts Henry Smart 1827, Dudley, Worcs 02/09/1827 Henry Smart c1830, Leigh, Worcs Henry Smart c1830, Ruardean?, Gloucs Henry Smart 1880, Oldbury, Worcs Henry William Smart c1826, Bisley, Gloucs William spent nearly all his life in Chalfont, Gloucs Henry William Smart 1853, Langley Green, Oldbury, Worcs Herbert Smart 1891, Smethwick, Staffs Known as a professional footballer (first with Bilston, then with Aston Villa), he is likely to have been one of the first (if not the first) UK professional footballer to sign up in World War I. His letter describing the Christmas Truce of 1914 was widely published (believed to have been first published 4th January 1915).
Whether he would have ever had a good football career is debatable. He seems to have only played once in the 1914 season, and 3 times in the 1919 season (scoring once). He seems to have played inside left for the Villa, and then centre forward for Leicester after being transferred (the Aston Villa web site suggests he went to Wolverhampton Wanderers, but Leicester seems more likely). In the War, the League was suspended 1915 to 1919, but he guested for at least Leicester and the Carriage Works (which of the several carriage works near Smethwick is not yet known). Under investigation.
We do not yet know whether he married or his date and place of death. The Aston Villa web site suggests his date of birth was 24/04/1892, his full name was Herbert Horace Smart, and he died in 1951.
Herbert Smart 1905, West Bromwich, Staffs Herbert died in infancy. Ivy R Smart 1916, Hobicus Lane, Oldbury, Worcs Ivy Rebecca Smart 1910, Hobicus Lane, Oldbury, Worcs Died young (about 1 year old).

Joseph may have been born in Oldbury, although the birth was registered in West Bromwich, a mile or so away. See birth certificate to clarify this. It seems clear that he was brought up in his family in Hobicus Lane, however. When his brother Samuel H Smart was married in 1935, he gave his residence as 13 Hobicus Lane, the same address as Joseph and his parents were at in the 1911 census (information from his page on the Whittingham web site).
Josiah Smart 1856, Langley Green, Oldbury, Worcs One of the key figures in this study. Josiah seems to have spent all his life within about a mile of Victoria Park, Smethwick.

Sarah Sutton c1829, Charlecote, Warks, England 07/06/1829 Hannah Symonds 1843, Tarring Neville, Sussex 19/03/1843 Hannah spent most (possibly all) here life in Sussex. Her hisband was often away from home, working as a stone mason. She had no children but looked after her sister's Mercy's children, after her sister was widowed and had to go into service to support herself. Mercy Symonds 1845, Tarring Neville, Sussex 04/05/1845 Mercy was married three times. She had 3 children with her first husband William, who died suddenly, leaving her penniless. She had to go back into service (she had been in service before she was married), leaving her three young children with her sister in Brighton (though her youngest at least later spent some time with her). Her two later marriages were to men she had been a housekeeper for; neither marriage lasted long. Her second husband died soon after the marriage, and she formally separated from her third husband only a year after they married. -- T -- Alice Maude M Talbot 1884, Aston, Warks, England Albert Victor Tanner 1900, Reading, Berks, England Alice Louise Tanner 1896, Brimpton, Berks, England Anne Tanner c1823, Oakridge Lynch, Gloucs, England Ann spent all her life within a couple of miles of Oakridge Lynch or Chalford, where she was born. It is not easy to decide which of the two she was born in. Maybe she was born in Chalford and moved to Oakridge Lynch (a couple of miles away) before 1841. Arthur Charles Tanner 1868, Rose Cottage, Southern Hill, Whitley, Reading, Berks, England Emigrated with his family to Australia in 1912, sailing on SS Demostenes (7000 tons), which left London 26/06/1912 and arrived Sydney 11/08/1912. They were sponsored (by Nestlé). Arthur Edwin Tanner 1895, Hyde End, Berks, England Edward Tanner c1745, Kirdford, Sussex 29/05/1745 Edward Tanner 1813, Rusper, Sussex 08/08/1813 Edward seems to have spent all of his life in the Rusper/Slinfold/Warham area of Sussex Edwin Leopold Tanner 1901, Reading, Berks, England 26/11/1901 Elizabeth Tanner c1840, Slinfold, Sussex 01/03/1840 Francis Charles Tanner 1898, Hyde End, Berks, England Hannah Tanner c1752, Kirdford, Sussex 16/12/1752 Harriet Tanner c1822, Brighton, Sussex 14/04/1822 Harry Stanley Tanner 1901, Reading, Berks, England 26/11/1901 Henry Tanner c1720, Sussex Henry Tanner 1778, Coates, Sussex 21/06/1778 Henry and his wife seem to spend all their life in the Horsham area after marrying. Three of their children were christened in Rusper (about 5 miles from Horsham): 08/08/1813, 13/08/1815, and 23/08/1818, with their father's profession given as labourer (as Rusper was predominantly agricultural in the early 19th century, this would have been agricultural labouring). But the family does not appear in the detailed 1821 census of Rusper that has survived. Three of their other children were christened in Horsham: 05/02/1809, 10/02/1811, 09/12/1821, 15/04/1827 (a christening of a Henry Tanner c1809 has not yet been found). It seems likely that Henry worked as an agricultural labourer wherever there was work in the area. [The possible ascription of Henry Tanner (c1808–1830) to this family is tentative at the moment.] Henry Tanner c1808, Horsham?, Sussex James Thomas Tanner c1842, Warnham, Sussex 17/07/1842 John Tanner c1782, Petworth, Sussex 13/10/1782 John Tanner c1794, Rotherfield, Sussex 07/09/1794 At the christening of his daughter Harriet in 1821, John is described as a wheelwright. This is the primary evidence that he was also found (with Sarah) in Wolverhampton in 1861. John Tanner c1809, Horsham, Sussex 05/02/1809 A John Henry Tanner emigrated to Australia and married Catharine Delaney in 1842. Although he seems to have been christened plain John tanner, he probably added the middle name to acknowledge (or in memory of) his father, John Tanner c1813, Petworth, Sussex Leonard Alfred Tanner 1906, The Lodge, Coley Recreation Ground, Reading, Berks, England Maria Tanner 1821, Rusper, Sussex 09/12/1821 Maria was born in the Horsham/Rusper area of Sussex. She married William Woolven (from West Grinstead) and they then lived together in Lewes for almost 50 years. Maria herself lived to be about 88 years of age.

In the 1911 census, when she was living with her husband George and daughter Elizabeth (44) in Slaugham, she reported that they had 7 children, all of whom were still alive.

She remained in the All Saints/Aston area until the end of her life. Elizabeth Taylor 1819, Bewdley, Worcs 13/06/1819 Fanny (Frances) Taylor 1828, Bewdley, Worcs 25/04/1828 Fanny originated in Bewdley, Worcestershire and moved with the rest her family to Aston (Birmingham) some time in the 1830s. After she got married, she stayed in the area for the rest of her life.
At the time of her marriage (October 1855) she gave her age as 27, implying a birth between Oct 1827 and Oct 1828. Her baptism 25th April 1828 implies a birth that is probably after August 1827 (and before April 1828!). At her death, her age is recorded as 59, implying a birth between Sep 1826 and Sep 1827. Although some census ages have small discrepancies, we thus conclude she was born in 1827 or early 1828. She consistently gave her place of birth as Bewdley, which was the main settlement in the parish of Ribbesford (and thus where we would expect her baptism).
Fanny gave her residence as Highgate, Birmingham in her wedding certificate (1855). She was previously living in
Frederick St, Birmingham (in service) in 1851. Highgate is just over a mile from Frederick St. Harriet Elizabeth Taylor c1822, Leamington, Warks, England James Taylor c1788, Worcs James Taylor c1821, Bewdley, Worcs, England 15/08/1821 Jane Taylor 1786, Hill House, Monkwearmouth, Co Durham, England 01/01/1786 John Taylor 1826, Bewdley, Worcs 30/07/1826 John Taylor c1857, Eardisley, Hereford John Taylor c1864, Birmingham, Warks, England John Brough Taylor 1787, Hill House, Monkwearmouth, Co Durham, England 25/03/1788 Joseph Charles Taylor 1862, Birmingham, Warks, England Mark Taylor 1789, Hill House, Monkwearmouth, Co Durham, England 31/10/1789 Mary Ann Taylor 1796, Hackney, Middx, England Rebeccah Taylor 1825, Bewdley, Worcs 23/01/1825 Samuel Taylor c1821, Bewdley, Worcs, England 15/08/1821 Susannah Taylor 1815, Bewdley, Worcs 26/11/1815 Thomas Taylor c1762, Co Durham, England Thomas Taylor 1784, Hill House, Monkwearmouth, Co Durham, England 01/11/1784 Thomas Taylor c1817, Bewdley, Worcs, England 03/09/1817 Thomas Taylor c1826, Clifford, Hereford, England 31/12/1826 William Taylor 1791, Monkwearmouth, Co Durham, England 23/11/1791 George Teagle 1853, Seagry, Wilts, England Edward Teague c1677, Ruardean, Gloucs 03/01/1678 Edward Teague 1707, Ruardean, Gloucs 25/05/1707 Edward Teague 1721, Ruardean, Gloucs 25/06/1721 James Teague 1683, Ruardean, Gloucs 22/09/1683 James Teague 1715, Ruardean, Gloucs 24/04/1715 John Teague 1688, Ruardean, Gloucs 20/05/1688 Margaret Teague 1710, Ruardean, Gloucs 08/03/1710 Margaret Teague 1718, Forest of Dean, Gloucs 07/09/1718 Martha Teague 1713, Ruardean, Gloucs 11/01/1713 Mary Teague 1709, Ruardean, Gloucs 06/03/1709 Rebecah Teague 1706, Ruardean, Gloucs 20/10/1706 Sarah Teague 1680, Ruardean, Gloucs 25/11/1680 Thomas Teague c1640, Hereford, England Thomas Teague 1711, Ruardean, Gloucs, England 14/04/1711 Annie Teakle c1870, Chalford?, Gloucs Julia Ann Teakle 1868, Chalford?, Gloucs Catharine Tekell 1838, Chalford, Gloucs Catherine spent all her life in the village of Chalford, and appears to have had two (possibly three) children before she married Henry Smart.

They married near her birth-place of Crick in Northants, but lived at several locations, before they ended up in London, where Elizabeth died in 1872.
The census record for 1841 is puzzling. It is hard to see how William and Elizabeth were in the Potteries. But it surely must be them as their daughter (born in Longton) has a birth certificate showing a mother's maiden name of Tomalin Their first child was born in Paddington (london) and their third is believed to have been baptised in Northumberland, near where Willaim was born.
Elizabeth Tomalin 1845, Crick, Northants, England Emily Tomalin c1851, Marylebone, London, England Ernest Walter Tomalin 1900, Hampstead, London, England George Tomalin 1847, Marylebone, London, England George's first marriage was very short and sad (losing his wife and daughter after only a year of marriage). His second marriage (to his cousin; perfectly legal) lasted many years. However, his only child by his second marriage also died fairly young (42) when on active service in World War I. George Walter Tomalin 1875, Kensington, London, England John Tomalin c1820, Crick, Northants 21/05/1820 Joseph Tomalin c1815, Crick, Northants 28/05/1815 Joseph Tomalin 1840, 37 Great North St, Marylebone, London, England 09/08/1840 Died in infancy (1 month).

He may have just been visiting family in London in the 1841 census, but maybe he lived there for some time during the period 1822 and 1851.
In both the 1851 and 1861 censuses, he is seen with an Ann Kilworth, though their relationship (other than presumed acquaintance/friendship) is not known.

But he was probably a farmer (see burial) and lived to a good age of at least 80 as his burial in 1758 was 60 years after his first child. Joseph Turner c1698, West Grinstead, Sussex 24/04/1698 Joseph seems to have lived (to about 59) in the Shipley/West Grinstead area of Sussex. As he was described as Joseph Junior when buried, it seems his father was still alive at the time (he probably died in 1758).

[When she married, her address was Brownlow Rd, Reading, but she is shown as not working.]
In the 1911 census, she stated that she had had 8 children, of whom 6 were still alive, and 2 had died (the two who had died were her twins, born November 1901).
Her death certificate states that five children were still alive:
- Arthur Edward, aged 36
- Francis Charles, aged 34
- Leonard Alfred, aged 25
- Phyllis Edna, aged 23
1 female deceased, 2 males deceased
In 1912, Fanny and her family (husband Arthur and all 6 children) emigrated to Australia. She was pre-deceased by her daughter Alice, but her other 5 children outlived her.

She was born in Lewes, Sussex, and spent most of her life nearby, although she may have briefly been in service in Kingston, Surrey in her teens, before her first marriage at the age of 22.

Presumably he met his wife whilst he was serving in Ireland in the 4th (Queen's Own) Dragoons (4th Dragoon Guard history), before he was injured and taken into Kilmainham Hospital (Recent pictures of Kilmainham), Dublin in 1817. She must have been quite young when they married (probably in Ireland, as there is no marriage record in Sussex). They seem to have lived separately some of the time (but nearby) in the last few years of their lives, including in 1841 when they were both in West Grinstead: Mary in the Catholic Chapel (she would have been a Roman Catholic of course) and Richard in the Anglican Rectory, showing how important such denominational distinctions were in those days.

William Henry Woolven 1857, Lewes, Sussex 25/12/1858 Trained as a printer, then worked as a compositor and printer. Became a licensee (in 1885 or 1886) at first in Lewes, then moving to Eastbourne to manage the Victoria Hotel, where he died 11 October 1890 (reportedly of fits).
JJ Brough (husband of William's daughter Florence) reported in 1948 that in conversations with Harry Simmonds, he gathered William had been drinking heavily in Eastbourne, although he had previously been abstemious.
