Which Mary BREWSTER is this?
« on: Monday 06 June 16 15:56 BST (UK) »
I am trying to tidy a loose end in a twig of our family tree. There are marriages of three Mary BREWSTERs listed in the Uppingham registration district for 1888.

I am interested in this one:

Mary BREWSTER m Charles LIQUORISH Uppingham 7a 571 (4th qtr 1888)

Does anyone have access to the local parish records?

If I am right, this Mary was born in 1868 in Lyddington, the daughter of Henry Brewster and Amy Waterfield - therefore marriage in Lyddington perhaps. If correct as well, the marriage was a tragically short lived one as a Mary LIQUORISH died, registered in Uppingham  in the 4th quarter 1890. It may have been the result of pregnancy or childbirth

Many thanks for your help

The Mary Dexter from the marriage in q1 1888, Uppingham appears to have married Job Dexter. Census has her birth as 1867, Lyddington

She would certainly have returned to Upingham after the marriage. There is a record of a child call Mary born in 1889.

If indeed this Mary is the one born in Lyddington, it brings together an almost unbelievable chain of events - how an assumed maternal side aunt from my childhood turned out to be nothing of the kind but ended up being a distant aunt on my father's side

A quick look at the FreeBMD birth indexes for Uppingham 1867/68 show:

2 x Mary

7a 274 (1st qtr 1867) <- ? the one who married Dexter
7a 281 (3rd qtr 1868) <- ? the one who married Liquorish


2 x Mary Ann

2 x Mary Elizabeth

Census for the Mary Brewster you are researching (daughter of Henry and Amy) records her birth as c.1869 as per 1871 and 1881.

This would appear to be her birth -

Mary Brewster
q3 1869, Uppingham, Rutland

Vol 7a Page 279

Yes, I wondered about that too. However, the record of Mary Liquorish's death in 1890 says she was aged 22

Why couldn't the Brewsters have kept a "lottery pot" and called their offspring by different names. Lyddington is a pretty small place and I'm sure the families were related back two or three generations

I guess I will have to wait for the marriage and death certificates to be absolutely certain.
