MONK and KENYON
« on: Friday 09 July 04 03:34 BST (UK) »
George MONK b. 1804 Maughold was the father of Mary Ann b. 1834 Ramsey.  Mary Ann's mother was Ellen/Elinor Kenyon.  Ellen/Elinor and George never married and Mary Ann was raised (apparently) by her maternal grandparents (Martin and Margaret Kenyon). 
George Monk's death in 1872 indicates he died a BACHELOR; as well, the 1861 Ramsey census states he was unmarried. 

Ellen/Elinor Kenyon was ch. 1810 at Ballaugh and after that she disappears.   I would very much like to obtain Ellen/Elinor Kenyon's place and date of death and/or particulars of any marriage she might have had after the birth of her daughter. 

Any connection to the Monks or Kenyons from the IOM will be appreciated.

Hi Donna:  Thanks for your help.  You've given me something more to look into.  I do wish, however, that Ellen had been 40 years old instead of 20..... BUT, worth having a second look.
Regards,
Pat

I think you'll find that Ellen's age was 29 at the '51 census

Thank you Brian - this means then that this Ellen's dob is 1822 and is therefore not 'mine'.

I thought an update might be appreciated.  I have discovered that Mary Ann Monk was ILLEGITIMATE; her baptism record clearly indicates this, therefore George Monk and Ellen Kenyon/Kennion never married.  Ellen eventually married a John Garrett about the year 1840, when their first child was born.

I wanted to thank all who assisted me at my first enquiry - much appreciated.
