Hi Carole

I have just discovered that Margaret's sister Anna Sivell [1847-1922] married Francis Watts [1844-1893] & she lived in West Ham from 1861 to her death & married in 1867 [4Q] along with the fact that quite a few of his siblings lived in West Ham about 1870 [+/- 10y]. However I have yet to find a Hannah Watts who was related to them, though I continue in my quest. I believe that the Watts connection is significant

Do tell me what you think & of your research

Kind regards

Hello Dave

I have just signed up with Ancestry UK for the 'World Package' & have investigated the USA a bit. I can find no evidence that he went back to the UK [no voyages by ship]. However a John Dolby died in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on 20 Oct 1881 & significantly he was born in 1806 in the record of his death, so there is a possibility that it might be our barber, [but he was a labourer in the death record]

What do you think?

Kind regards

Hello Dave

Thanks for your in depth info about the criminal cases & trip to New York. I think one can be fairly sure of it being 'my' John Dolby. I have tried superficially to look in the USA but so far no joy. Interestingly [1] his youngest son Albert moved to USA at some point as he married an Elizabeth Woodburn Gray on 26 Feb 1902 in Manhattan [see FS - NYC/USA records]. His age is wrong [should be 62y] but his father & mother & place of birth is correct, & [2] his by that time married eldest daughter [Mary Jane Steinle] emigrated with her husband & 2 children to Manhattan in NYC/USA in early 1866 & [3] John Burdall Dolby [1831-1852] by Mary Ann Burdall, was a criminal/prisoner in the 1y before his death in the workhouse

Do tell me what you think of this info, plus any further research & ideas of yours

Kind regards

Hello again Geoff

Further info on J.D. His father is George Dolby [1766-1844] & mother Alice [aka Allis] Benson [1770-1857]. His 1st wife was Elizabeth Measures [1808-1829], marriage 1 May 1828 in Spalding. His kids with Mary Ann [1815-unknown] were John Burdall [1831-1852], Mary Jane [1834-1910], Jemima [1838-1927] & Albert [1840-unknown]. J.D. also had a son with E.M. John Dolby [1829-unknown]. John Burdall Dolby is known only as John Dolby except in his baptism details

Hope this helps a bit

Kind regards

Hello Geoff

Thanks for getting back to me. John Dolby's parents were both gardeners & while he was staying with his mother she may have filled in the 1851 Census return on his behalf. On his daughter Mary Jane's wedding cert with Edmund Steinle on 17 Feb 1856 in Bermondsey, South London, it says her father is/was a hairdresser [unknown whether alive or dead]. Also on daughter Jemma's wedding cert with William Martin on 3 May 1860 in Newington, South London, it says her father is/was a hairdresser [unknown whether alive or dead]. I have other documentary proof of this occupation dated 1829, 1831 & 1841-Census. Another thing is whether he might have been divorced rather than died prior to his wife Mary Ann marrying Isaac Gill in 28 May 1855 in the City of London

What do you think?

Kind regards

Hello Rosie

Thanks for your suggestions for W.S. The details of the 1851 Census are: Lewknor, Thame, Oxon, England, ED/inst/vess 10b, house/sched/no 87, piece 1726, folio 263, page/no 24

Regarding the 1841 Census, I can find no details of him & his family in Marylebone, Middlesex. However I believe that some of the 1841 Census details were lost from the nearby area of Paddington [piece HO107/680 - I unfortunately have no further details], so this may be relevant

He is a real mystery!

Kind regards

Hello 'wivenhoe'

Thank you for your interest in 'my' Elizabeth Lucket[t]. Her children with Samuel Luckett were: [1] Sarah [1802-1848] [see my last post to Annette7], John [1807-1867] [he was a prison officer working in Westminster in a prison [?where Tate Gallery is now] & Brixton Prison, & Samuel [birth details unknown - died 1803]. Samuel Luckett [abt 1765-1838] married Elizabeth Collin on 26 Jun 1797 in Halstead, Essex [source Essex Parish Registers c/o Essex Records Office] [facts not certain but rather 'best fit']. Elizabeth Collin baptism record 5 July 1767 in Farnham, Essex [source EPR c/o ERO] [facts not certain but rather 'reasonable fit']. Samuel Luckett may have worked in the Halstead Workhouse about the time of their marriage, but I have been unable to find any evidence of this or at a nearby workhouse. I think S.L. may have died in Bishopsgate in 1838, but I cannot prove it is E.L.'s husband. However Samuel is an unusual forename for a Luckett at that time

Do please let me know what you think

Kind regards

Hello Annette

Sorry about the info about Elizabeth Lucket[t]'s death cert. I got totally confused with another death cert I received recently [due to the time of my post!]. The reason I am confident about her being the correct E.L. in the 1841 Census is that she is living next door to her daughter [Sarah Luckett 1802-1848], who married Henry Gould & had 4x children - of whom William is my direct relative]. Henry Gould was a policeman & must have been working on the night of the Census. The other people living with E.L. were a police family whose man worked with H.G.

Thank you for your thoughts that E.L. may well be the right one. Interestingly daughter Sarah died of T.B. in Stepney on 16 July 1848

Hello Geoff

Thanks for your interest in my pedigree problem. I do not know where Mary Ann was in 1851 despite some searching

Please see my 'Arthur Dolby Martin Family Tree' on ancestry.co.uk if you have access for my most recent ideas on John Dolby. My print out of his details is unfortunately too large a file for Rootschat attachments

Do see what you make of it. Any ideas are most welcome. If you are unable to get onto ancestry.co.uk please get back to me & I will try to condense some of his info

Kind regards

Michael
