Bastardy Records/Quarter Sessions/Newspapers - Buckingham brothers
« on: Tuesday 19 September 17 19:17 BST (UK) »
Hi All, It is looking like my husbands 3rd GGrandmother had three boys all illegitimately every 8 years!!  I was wondering if anyone can find anything in the local newspapers, bastardy records or quarter sessions to help see if I can find their dads.

Details are:

Mum Sarah Buckingham/Buckenham Born 1813 in Shouldham Norfolk

Sons:

Robert Buckingham Born 1838 Shouldham Norfolk
Thomas Buckingham Born 1846 Shouldham Norfolk
Stephen Buckingham Born 1852 Shouldham Norfolk

Many thanks in advance...

Could be the same father for all 3 - no hint of a father on any of the birth certificates?

Is Sarah living with anyone else in 1841/1851 etc or just the 3 boys?

In 1841 she was living with Robert (first born) and her sister and brother in law in st giles, london. 

No birth or baptism for Robert and only hint of a father was a probable false name of Robert Buckingham, for which I can find no records.

Other boys she is seen living with in 1851 back in shouldham, but again no name on their birth or baptism records.

Thanks I see when Robert married he named his father as Robert a farmer but as you say likely that was made up.

Did the other boys marry and name a father by any chance?

I have Thomas marrying a Maria Cooper but cannot find a proper image for the certificate.  No luck with the other marrying that I can see yet

What year marriage do you have for Thomas and Maria?

There is this one in 1886 Chelsea but a different Thomas

Thomas Henry Buckingham - 29 father David (mother Eliza per baptism)
Mary Maria Cooper - 27 father Samuel

No it is 4 years according to the burial entry so born 1848.

I wonder if he was baptised 1852 age 4?

There is a birth registrarion in Jun 1848 Downham for a Stephen Buckingham - no mothers maiden name so I think that could be him.

And just to confuse matters there is another Stephen born same place in 1847 father Richard but he goes on to marry.
