The Beck Family St Helier
« on: Thursday 22 June 17 10:07 BST (UK) »
I am putting together the Family Tree of my late sister-in-law for her children etc.

One of Brenda’s 2xGgmothers was Jane Moignard born 1830 in St Helier, Jersey.  With access to Jersey records her pedigree seems reasonably straightforward.  However, her husband is a different matter; he was William Richard Beck born probably at the very end of 1830 in St Helier.  His baptism took place on 2 January 1831, as the son of William Beck and Mary Moles.  Problems arise with this couple as I can find no record after the baptism of their second son John James in 1833, again at St Helier.  All I have to trace them is the detail of their marriage on 18 July 1829 at St Helier.  This document says that William Beck was of the Parish of Charge (Chard?) in the County of Somerset and Mary Moles was of the Parish.

There is a possible baptism of a William Beck at Chard in 1811 but, until I have more information on his later life I am loathe to go forward on this.

By 1861 William Richard Beck (working as a Shoe Maker) was living in Walworth, Lambeth, Surrey.  Jane was there plus four children, the eldest of whom was Mary Jane born 6 Dec 1853 in St Helier.

I cannot find anything of either couple on the 1841 nor the 1851 Census.

Please can anybody help with any sort of information, that could assist towards tracing the elusive William Beck and Mary Moles.  Also anything on their son before he and his family left Jersey.

Thanks in advance,
Tony

All the Marriage Certificate (23 Dec 1850, Parish of St Helier) says is that his Father, William Beck was a Shoemaker.  It does not mention if he was deceased.

Hi

I can see Jane on the 1841 census

St Johns Road

George Moignard 45    mason
Jane                   40
Mary                  15 milliner
John                  14 shipwrights app.
Eliza                  12
JANE                 10
Ann                   8
Susan                6
Robert               4                     All born on same Island

HO107 /  1461 /  13 /  24 / 7

Can't see William on either census - have you tried searching out the Godparents listed on his and his brothers baptisms ~ Richard Randel and Elizabeth Randell nee MOLES ? If the parents had passed away they could be with them, but I can't find them either.
Luce, Tippett , Thomson, Dolling ~ Devon & Cornwall
Mocquard ~ London, France

No, I have not looked at the brother's godparents but will do so later.

I've had no luck either in tracing the Becks in earlier Census either.
