Mary CRAXFORD - an infant death?
« on: Monday 24 August 15 17:39 BST (UK) »
Trying to clarify the outcome for Mary, the daughter of Robert and Harriet Craxford, born in Barrowden, Rutland on August 13th 1826. I have been unable to trace her in any of the obvious later records. Did she die in infancy - and are there any local Parish Records which could help. The family do appear to have attended Barrowden Baptist Chapel.

Many thanks Alan

There is a Mary Craxford b1826  on 1841 cen in Uppingham with Edward Jackson and family, aged 15 a F Servant.  May be her.

Her father Robert was born in Gretton Northants and there is a burial there in  1874 of a Mary Craxford, but no age is given so not a certainty.
Can find no marriage or other census for her.

Yes, I had seen the 1842 marriage on FreeBMD just now but had not followed it up. I'm not sure whether she married Samuel Chapman or Job Wright. The 1851 census isn't helpful. I'll apply to the GRO for the certificate.

Interestingly the Samuel Chapman who married in Gretton in January 1842 was married to widow Mary Woolley. She had previously been married to Robert Craxford (in 1834). This Robert was, curiously, fourth cousin once removed to Mary Craxford.

Best I can do is to report back with results.

Cheers Alan

Yes, I had overlooked the point that Gretton BMDs were recorded in Uppingham and not Kettering. Obviously the BMD index record is showing the bride Mary Woolley with her widoed married name.

So, I'm no further forward tracing Mary Craxford who was born in Barrowden in 1826. She could well be the Mary Craxford (aged 15) the Uppingham census of 1841. Mary Woolley was born in Gretton about 1813. Her husband Robert Craxford died in 1837.
