Just to complete things William Hewett 31 died in Chepstow, Monmouthshire Sept.qtr.1849 and birth of son Robert registered with no Christian name in Sept.qtr.1847 Chepstow.

Just discovered William Hewett and Hannah Chaplin had other children too:

Sarah Chaplin Hewett   birth Sept.1841 Tiverton, death Dec.1841 Tiverton
William Hewett   birth Dec.1842 Tiverton
Jane Hewett  birth Jun.1845 Tiverton
Twins - Roseannah Hewett     birth Jun.1849 Chepstow, death Sept.1849 Chepstow
           Susannah Hewett             ditto                                  ditto

Poor Hannah - losing her husband and newly born twins at roughly the same time.

Might just possibly(!) mean Bradninch.

Now why didn't I think of that - that's it and fits in with what I've unravelled.

First I found James and Hannah Leech in Guernsey on the 1851 census:

James Leech  30    Ag. Lab.
Hannah Leech 32
Sarah Leech 7
John Leech 5
Robert Leech 3

Just states all born England - however, although shown as Leech the surname of the 3 children should read Hewett!

The Sarah Hewett b.1844 Tiverton (mentioned earlier) shows mmn as Chaplen.
I then found a John William Hewett b.1845 Totnes, mmn Chaplin.
Haven't found an obvious birth entry for Robert Hewitt bc.1848.

This Sarah Hewett is clearly the one who married John Scriven 1866 and in 1871 her eldest son John is living, as you know, with James and Hannah Leech as grandson!

So I then looked for a marriage between a James Leech and Hannah Hewett and eventually found it:

James Leech, bachelor, son of William Leech, Tailor
Hannah Hewitt, widow, dau. of John Chaplin, shoemaker

Married 12/2/1850 Chepstow, Monmouthshire

I then looked for a baptism in Bradninch (thank you jonw65) of a Hannah Chaplin:

Hannah Chaplin bp.22/2/1817 Bradninch, dau. of John Chaplin and Sarah (his occupation cordwainer, i.e. shoemaker)

What I can't find, however, is a marriage between a Mr. Hewett/Hewitt and Hannah Chaplin.   Alas, the 3 Hewett children do not appear to have been baptised so can't find fathers name that way.

Certainly a family with wanderlust.

What I can't figure out is where 'Bradenage/variants, Devon' was - this doesn't seem to have existed under any spelling.

In case bluegenes does see stessy's post think I can identify his parents (even though can't find his baptism).

A John Dennis married a Drusilla Kent 15/11/1824 St. Columb, Major (both of that parish).

Elizabeth Mary Dennis bp.25/1/1825 St. Columb, dau. of John Dennis (tailor) and Drusilla.

They next appear in London:

Drusilla Thomson Dennis b.7/1/1830, bp.28/2/1830 St. James, Westminster, dau. of John Dennis (tailor) and Drusilla.

9 months later Drusilla Dennis, 26, of St. James, buried 14/11/1830 St. George Hanover Square.

So John juniors birth would have between those of his 2 sisters,  When his wife died John senior was left with a 5 year old, a 4 year old (John) and a 10 month old baby.   By 1841 eldest daughter Elizabeth is back in St. Columb living with her maternal grandparents, Robert and Mary Kent but don't know what became of John Dennis senior, or where John junior, and dau. Drusilla were.

Drusilla Kent bp.18/11/1804 St. Columb, dau. of Robert and Mary

John Dennis bp.6/1/1805 St. Columb, son of James and Elizabeth.

Think re army history that he is the Adam Mair, 2695/280753 of 7th Highland Light Infantry - per pension records which state his residence as Cambusnethan - he was born in Wishaw but in 1911 he and Annie were living in Cambusnethan.

To kick you off, believe this is your Adam's death (had some spare credits on SP):

Adam Mair  81  Mine Deputy (Retired)  (married to Annie McDermott) died 20/10/1960 at East Fort..... (not clear) Hospital, usual residence 1 Carnethy Court, Penecuik - informant son Adam Mair of 140 St. Brides Way, Bothwell, Lanarkshire.   His parents listed as Alexander Mair, coal miner (dec'd) and Janet Mair, nee Muir (dec'd).

His parents married 26/6/1877 and census shows he was born Wishaw (actually on 4/10/1879, 25 Berryhill Row, Wishaw).

Thought I'd look at the 1891 census you mention but cannot find a Charles Codling with an Eliza - can you please give the reference for this so that I can find it?
