Kettlety's of Bradford Upon Avon
« on: Monday 01 November 04 15:37 GMT (UK) »
Any Kettlety's out there ?  Extremely difficult finding this family despite a rare name.  I have an Albert Kettlety married to an Elizabeth Prescott both born around 1882 in Avon, Wilts or Worcs.

Any info at all would be very much appreciated.

Hi Roz

Have you looked at the 1901 Census. There is an Albert aged 19
born:Worcestershire Claines County:Worcestershire Civil parish:North Claines Coach Maker

Ada - aged 10 - same details (except the occupation)
Elizabeth aged 44 (born Worcestershire Rowe)
Henry 14 - office Boy

I didn't find a husband for Elizabeth - may have missed him or she may be a widow.

Found these two families in the 1891 census:

Kettlety, Albert 8 Bath, Somerset Son  Twerton  Somerset
Kettlety, Edith 3 Twerton, Somerset Daughter  Twerton  Somerset
Kettlety, George 10 Bath, Somerset Son  Twerton  Somerset
Kettlety, Louisa 34 Lambeth, London Wife  Twerton  Somerset
Kettlety, Louisa 14 Bath, Somerset Daughter  Twerton  Somerset
Kettlety, Mabel 1 Twerton, Somerset Daughter  Twerton  Somerset
Kettlety, William 37 Bradford, Wiltshire Head  Twerton  Somerset
Kettlety, William 11 Bath, Somerset Son  Twerton  Somerset

RG12/1929 Folio 71 Page 13
Twerton 



Kettlety , Albert 9 Claines, Worcestershire Son  North Claines  Worcestershire
Kettlety , Elizth 35 Church Lench, Worcestershire Wife  North Claines  Worcestershire
Kettlety , Ellen 7 Claines, Worcestershire Daughter  North Claines  Worcestershire
Kettlety , Harry 4 Claines, Worcestershire Son  North Claines  Worcestershire
Kettlety , Kata 10.12 Claines, Worcestershire Daughter  North Claines  Worcestershire
Kettlety , Worthy (?) 42 Bradford on Avon, Wiltshire Head  North Claines Worcestershire

RG12/2341 Folio 87 Page 4
Claines 

There's 25 Wiltshire Kettletys in the 1871 census, no Alberts or Berts but one 'Obed' Kettlety aged 2 of Bradford. Looking at the image it looks like it could say Albert though it's hard to tell. All the other names in that family are fairly standard Victorian names so I'd be surprised if they suddenly decided to go for something unusual, though it's always a possibility of course.

This is the family anyway:

Eliza Kettlety 12  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Daughter  Bradford  Wiltshire   
Frank Kettlety 10  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Son  Bradford  Wiltshire   
Frederick Kettlety 8  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Son  Bradford  Wiltshire   
George Kettlety 15  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Son  Bradford  Wiltshire   
Harriet Kettlety 46  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Wife  Bradford  Wiltshire   
James Kettlety 58  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Head  Bradford  Wiltshire   
Obed Kettlety 2  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Son  Bradford  Wiltshire   
Peter Kettlety 4  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Son  Bradford  Wiltshire   
William Kettlety 17  Bradford, Wiltshire, England Son  Bradford  Wiltshire   

RG10/1925 Folio 40 Page 16
Bradford On Avon

Albert was my grandfather.  He was the son of Worthy and father of Ada May and Kathleen Emily.
He died young and the girls were raised by grandparents.  He had an adopted brother Harry who was killed and buried in France.  Albert was also in the army but did not go overseas.
Harry was a detective constable and we would love to know where he came from and how he came to be a Kettlety..
