William Day Lithographer London
« on: Tuesday 10 February 09 09:00 GMT (UK) »
Seeking some assistance to find information on William Day (1797- 1845) and Son William (b. c1824), who were lithographers in London. In 1851 the son William Day is suppose to be 17 Gate Street, Lincoln's Inn Field. I have the Census but can't find their household. He may have an uncle John Bellini Day, a publisher of London.

Regards

Keith

Is this a possible for William Jnr. in 1851?  Not in Lincoln's Inn Field, but he is the right age and a printer.

19, Lorraine Place, Islington

Can't find a John Bellini Day, but in 1854 a John BELLENCE Day married a Rose Isabel Rees.

Hi Ben,

I am interested in any details of William Day of London (1795 - 1845) the lithographer; William Day, his son also a lithographer agent; and I "believe" John Bellini Day, the publisher, will be his brother.

Galium - the Caroline A Nicholls you provided yesterday will be a daughter of William Day Senior, and I found her in 1881 Census staying with Dr. W.G.Grace and Agnes Nicholls Grace, nee Day, her niece. The wife of William Day Junior is Elizabeth Rees. The wife of John B. Day is Isobel Rees.

These families are connected with my Rees family of Haverforwest, Wales.
Regards,

Hi,
William Jr appeared to go bankrupt in 1866: http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/issues/23170/pages/5354 (column two)

There are several other references to him, giving his various London addresses, elsewhere in the Gazette: http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/search 

Good luck
Rob

The W G  Grace?  How wonderful!

Are you sure that John B Day is William Snr.'s brother?  He seems to be more of a contemporary Of William Jnr ?

Found a marriage announcement for John and Isabel:

The Times Monday Jan 24 1854:

On the 3rd inst. at St John's Church, Holloway, by the Rev. __ Parnther.  John Bellinie Day Esq., of Gate street, Lincoln's-inn, to Isabel Rose, youngest daughter of the late William Lee Rees, R. N.

Thank you Galium for the marriage entry - yes,  son of the William Day Senior. (1797 - 1845)
This would make William Day m. Elizabeth Rees; John Bellini Day m. Isabel Rose Rees and Caroline A. Day m. John R. Nicholls brothers and sisters, and chn of William Day Senior.
The two Rees girls are first cousins. Isabel Rose Rees is from Lt. William Lee Rees and Mary Pocock; and Elizabeth Rees is from Dr. James Lee Rees and Elizabeth Pocock. The two Pococks are sisters. To make it worse the Rees boys' sister Mary Rees form Haverfordwest, m. the Pocock girl's brother George Pocock, Junior.

Yes, the cricket Grace family married into these families as well.
Once again Galium, thank you for your interest and support.

To Robert - I will now look up your references. Thank you.

Thank you Rob.

It seems that William Day didn't seem stay bankrupt too long as by 1881, he is living Edgcliffe Gardens, Kensington with a household of about 17 or 18., as a lithographer agent.

Thank you for the news article.
