Osborn/Wright Family - Isle of Axholme
« on: Tuesday 15 March 05 16:33 GMT (UK) »
I would like to hear from anyone who can help me in tracing my family tree who came from the Birmingham area and settled in the Isle of Axholme - Haxey in particular.

My ggg grandma is an Eliza Dunning/Downing, born Birmingham 1850, married Henry John Osborn, Tin Worker. She was in Gainsborough at time of 1881 census, and later moved to Burnham/Haxey. Henry John may have been in Gainsborough Workhouse at the time of the 1881 census, although I have found a Henry John Osborn who died in a Middlesex, London Workhouse in 1883, the year my ggg grandad Henry died. Henry John's mum and dad, Hannah, nee Smith and Henry Astley Osborn also lived in Middlesex for a few years and died there in 1883 and 1877 respectively. (although they originally lived in Birmingham, and I suspect I have many Osborn relatives still there)

Henry and Eliza had a number of children, including a Henry John b. c1875, Hannah (my gg grandma), Elizabeth Caroline, Arthur Edward, Alice b.1883 and a grandchild called Gertrude b.1900. Eliza remarried to a George Wright, Blacksmith and went on to have two more (known) children with him - Ernest and George.

I would love to hear from anyone who also has any of these people in their familytree.

Thanks,
Catherine  :)

Thanks Wendy. I suspected that might be my Eliza, but cant find her future husband Henry John Osborn on the 1871 census(who she married the year after). Theres a few possibles, including one in London, and I was hoping that someone else who also has the Osborns/ Wrights in their tree could help with my "brickwalls".

I have come back to this branch after a long break and found that a couple of Eliza's children have gone walkabouts in the later censuses -

Elizabeth Caroline Osborn b. Gainsborough c1878 - missing after 1881

Arthur Edward Osborn b. c1880 Gainsborough - missing in 1901 census

Anyone have any more luck than me at finding them??  :-\

Thanks

Also missing after 1901 census - Alice born 1883 Low Burnham, Haxey, Lincs (she could have married under the surname Wright as I'm not sure if her father is Henry John Osborn or her mum's second husband George Wright)

My great grandad, Hannah Osborn's son, had 12 siblings and I have been told by different descendants that one of Hannah's sisters (I think she only had 2 - Alice b. Low Burnham Haxey 1883 and Elizabeth Caroline b. Gainsborough 1878) had "something to do with the Normanby Estate/Sheffield family". Several contacts say their mums recall receiving food and clothes parcels from whoever it was.......

Wish I had the 1911 census!  ::)

Thanks Kate,

Hannah Osborn and William Hall are my great grandad's parents.

Henry John must be Hannah's brother, named after their father (I have his birth certificate) and looks like hes also "Harry", father of Ethel May Osborn who married in 1927.

Will see if I can find anything else in the bmd index, now I have a couple more names to look for.

Regards
Cat  :)

Hello Catherine,

My name is David and I have just discovered your post having visited this Forum for the first time. I use a web site called Myheritage.com and currently have just under 300 names in my 'Tree' so far. William Hall, and Hannah Hall are my Great Grandparents on my Mother's side. Continuing, then, through Hannah, my tree goes back to Henry Astley Osborn and his wife Hannah Osborn on one side, and John Dunning and Hannah Dunning on the other side of the family. Obviously, I have links to other members of the family, and it would seem that at some point, your family tree and mine are linked.

Regards, David
