Bacon - Selston & Worksop
« on: Saturday 23 July 05 08:24 BST (UK) »
Good morning. The 1901 census shows Charles Bacon aged 30, b Selston, Notts, a coal miner, living at Wilson's Fields Caravan with his wife Charlotte. Charlotte was aged 42 and was born in Barrow-on-Soar, Leics.

In 1891 Charles was living at "Caravan, Sand Hill", Worksop with his parents William and Emily and siblings including a sister named Parthenia.

I think Charlotte might belong to one of my husband's families, does anyone have any information about this couple or family.

Thanks

Judith

Thanks oly,

Bit late in replying, cos it's not been showing that I've had any replies at the top of the page!

This Charlotte is a mystery. There's only one Charlotte b Barrow on Soar in 1858/9 and I've followed her through the census from 1861 under her single and married names as far as 1891 just after she married her 2nd husband. No trace of her death and no trace of a Charlotte born ca 1858 in Barrow in the 1901 census, apart from this Charlotte Bacon who doesn't appear anywhere else. I'm wondering if she left her husband and went off with this younger man and they weren't married........

Another of genealogy's little mysteries!

Best wishes

Judith in Leeds

Well I'm still on the trail of a Charlotte Emily born around the late 1850s-early 1860s in Barrow on Soar, Leics. (See earlier posts in this thread.)

The 1911 census shows her still living with this Charles Bacon as his wife, this time as a Van Dweller on Waste Ground at Hawthorn Street, Nottingham. It states they've been married for 17 years, which would make it around 1894. There are a couple of marriages for a Charles Bacon in '93 and '94 but I can't check the spouse, and if this is the same woman then I think her husband was still alive anyway! If I've found the right person then he appears to be in both the 1901 and 1911 censuses, lodging in his home county of Warwickshire and stating that he's married.

The mystery continues and any help would be appreciated.

There are 10 Charles BACON marriages scattered around the country in 1893 and 1894. 

The only one with Charlotte for a wife was in June 1894.
Paddington ref 1a 50

She was Charlotte Lizzie GIBBONS.

I think you will have to buy the certificate to find out any more information about her.

I have been relooking at the old maps and Cremorne street it is next to Hawthorne street, again and again the same solicitor's names keep coming up on records, just by tracing them much information about many Family's may be found
