Naomi Pont
« on: Sunday 27 November 16 21:10 GMT (UK) »
I am helping a friend with her tree and we are stuck with Naomi Pont.

She marries Owen Crisp Allen D1861 Cambridge

1871, 1881, 1891 she is with her husband and various children living in Cambridge. Her place of birth is twice given as Chatteris, Cambs., once as Cambridge. Her date of birth is 1830 to 1832.

Her husband's death appears to be registered 1899 London.

We can't find any trace of Naomi before her marriage, nor can we find her after 1891. Is anyone able to help?

Thankyou
Brie

So she was about 30 when she married - could it have been a second marriage? Have you seen either her marriage certificate or one of the childrens' births certificates?

Thankyou for your reply. We haven't those certificates - we are just at the beginning. I hadn't thought about a previous marriage - I'll start looking at the childrens' birth registrations.

The children on the 1871 census are all born after the 1861 marriage. However, on the 1871 there is also a niece, Sarah A Cox, aged 18. She is on the 1881 census with her parents. Also in that household is a sister-in-law of her father, Sarah Pont, single. So it looks as if Sarah is Naomi's sister and therefore Naomi's maiden name is Pont.

That also means that Margaret Cox is Naomi's sister doesn't it? That means we are looking for a Pont family with:

Naomi born  1830
Margaret born  1827
Sarah born  1823

There is a Pont household in Cambridge in 1841 headed up by Samuel Pont, 40.  It includes a 15 yr old Margaret Pont, but not a Naomi or a Sarah Pont.

Samuel Pont 56 and wife Judith 39 are still in Cambridge in 1851.  She was with him also in 1841 - possibly a second wife given the age gap.

You're right Groom. I hadn't thought about Margaret as well. Doh!
