Kent / Re: John Hobday from Kent England
« on: Monday 30 September 13 11:47 BST (UK)  »
I think you need to gather all the information that you can about John (supposedly from Kent) and then we can look from there.  What resource gives his birthplace and date?  Census?  Marriage?  Death/burial?  Children?  Residences?  etc. etc..

Kent / Re: Paris Farm, Lashenden
« on: Friday 27 September 13 21:48 BST (UK)  »
There was certainly a Lashenden Farm in Biddenden (1881 census) and people living at Lashenden in Biddenden (1911) so it does look likely.  Is it possible that the deceased husband inherited it from family which may help locate it?

Kent / Re: Seal or Deal?
« on: Friday 13 September 13 03:12 BST (UK)  »
George and Ann STEER had the following children baptised Seal:

William 20 Jun 1813
Ann 5 Mar 1815
James Simon Bartholomew 9 Jun 1816
John 27 Jul 1817
Hannah 13 Mar 1819
Sarah 18 May 1821
Elizabeth 5 Dec 1830
Thomas 2 Mar 1828

Ann STEER dau of George STEER, bricklayer married Henry George STEER son of Henry George STEER, gentleman 1 Sep 1839 St Saviour Southwark.

It looks to me that Thomas STEER was likely the brother of Ann rather than Henry George.

1841 Seal Street, Seal, Kent

George STEER 51 bricklayer
Ann 50
Thomas 14
John 10
Elizabeth 10
HO107/485 book 1 folio 41 page 12

1851 2 Chittendens Row, Tonbridge, Kent

George STEER head wid 62 bricklayer b.Seal
Elizabeth dau 20 b.Seal
HO107/1615 folio 207 page 2

Other children of Henry George STEER senior
Charles Thomas STEER when he marries in 1843 gives his father as Henry George STEER a hosier.
Frederick William STEER when he marries in 1840 gives his father as Henry George STEER a gentleman.

Charles Thomas, Frederick William and Henry George were all baptised Rotherhithe with their father, Henry George STEER, a grocer of Paradise Street.

The dates I have found on FindMyPast are 1805 and 1813

Would these be dates of birth though, not service dates?

Seaweed may be able to assist or at least point you in the right direction if you could give names etc..

If you follow the link in my above post there is an email address for Hythe Library, they may look it up for you.

Hi Wanda, Welcome to Rootschat.  Have you looked at the National Archives guides to tracing Merchant Seamen?

Kent Lookup Requests / Re: INGE family possibly born in Folkestone
« on: Tuesday 10 September 13 21:00 BST (UK)  »
Susanna Inge AUSTIN baptised 9 Feb 1820 Folkestone dau of Richard Inge AUSTIN and Mary Ann I would imagine is a good possibility ........... the original baptism should show his occupation which may help.

There was also a daughter, Elizabeth, baptised Folkestone 1 May 1822 (buried 19 Mar 1828 Folkestone)

Robert Bazeley Inge AUSTIN baptised 11 Dec 1825 Marylebone son of Richard and Mary Ann AUSTIN of Drummond St, St Pancras - glazier (born 21 March)

Richard Inge AUSTIN married Mary Ann KITE 7 Sep 1819 Folkestone.

1870 census Brooklyn, Kings, New York
Mary INGE 73 b.England keeping house
Susannah McGREGOR 50 b.England fur sewer
James 23 b.England fur cutter

I think she emigrated in 1857 aboard the Amazon age 37 with James age 10.

The nearest birth registration I can see for James MacGregor in the Holborn district is that of a James Mc Gregor AUSTIN March quarter 1847 ref. 2 140 which, if it is him, would suggest that Susannah wasn't married.

Have you looked at the original 1798 baptism to see if there is any other useful information included?  It is unlikely but there is always a remote possibility especially if the father was a soldier.  Hythe library have films of the original registers

Also, is there any useful information on the original 1825 marriage ie. names of witnesses which could be helpful?

Kent / Re: Thomas Smith Esq - Margate
« on: Monday 02 September 13 02:28 BST (UK)  »
The problem with "Gentleman" is that it was such a loose term in those times.  I, myself, have an ancestor described as such ........... he was a carpenter/undertaker, at some time bankrupt and, as far as I am aware, didn't own any property himself.  I would suggest (assuming Frances is describing her father "correctly") that he may be self sufficient/a trades person/shop keeper or something along those lines (rather than a servant or labourer) as well as what we would today think of as a gentleman.

An additional hurdle may be that the railway came to Margate in the mid 1840s which made it far more accessible hence more movement of the population.
