Devon Marriage Records
« on: Sunday 18 June 17 11:37 BST (UK) »
I wondered if a kind Rootschatter had access to Devon marriage records for 1875?

I an trying to find the father of a Philip Hingston who married Henrietta Ann H White in Plymouth in Q1 1875.  Ref 5b 464.

I have narrowed the Philips down to a couple of possibles but without the father's name I am stuck.  I am helping out as a volunteer on a one name study project so this is not my personal tree.

Any help would be appreciated.

Would you please list the two possibles in case it helps.

Hi

Thank you for the reply.

I have Philip Albert Hingston, born 1856, Plymouth Charles, who died in 1884, or just possibly his father, Philip who was married to Jenny Rhimes, the mother of Philip Albert.

I can't find anything definite on Henrietta.  There was one child, Robert Charles Hingston, born 1877,mmn White, who died in 1878.   The whole thing would fit if there was a death for Henrietta between 1875 and 1881 as Philip Albert married Mary Jane Martin in 1881 and had 2 children, Philip Daniel 1882 and Blanche Matilda 1884.  Children were with their Martin grandparents in 1891 and 1901 as their mother had also died.

Just to complicate matters, since I posted I found a Henrietta Ann White born in 1857 in Siston, near Bristol and an 1851 census for Philip Hingston born 1828 in Westbury on Trym, near Bristol living in Siston, working as a servant.  A big age difference but who knows?  I can't seem to find this Philip on other censuses. 

So ideally the father's name seems to be the best way forward as I can then go back to the existing Hingston trees to compare.

Thanks for the information.  I think I had seen most of it.  I have spent hours on this!  It is just the missing link to the father of Philip that I need to then try to tie him in to a family tree.  The Bristol link will keep me busy for a while no doubt!
