Hi,

I think that this is a possibility for Thomas Joseph CHILDS in 1861,


1861  RG9/635  f.118  p.4  Portsea, Hampshire
Portsea Island Union Workhouse Number 2

Francis Joseph CHILDS    3    Hampshire Portsea


I realise that it says Francis rather than Thomas but I can't find a Francis Joseph CHILDS born anywhere in 1858 +/-5 and I can't see any other record for him after 1861.



I think the Thomas J CHILDS in 1861 found by KGarrad could be Thomas James ALLEN,

Birth
Thomas James ALLEN    Mar Q 1856    Portsea Island    2b  361
mmn: SMITH

Marriage   
Thomas CHILDS    Jun Q 1859    Portsea Island    2b  642
Sarah Ann ALLEN

In 1851 there is a Sarah ALLEN aged 29, born in Sheerness, Kent is living with her mother Sarah SMITH in Stoke Damerel Devon,  HO107/1882  f.537  p.31.

In 1861 Sarah A CHILDS is living in the same house as a Susannah SMITH, possibly be a relative?

In 1871 Sarah CHILDS aged 48, born Sheerness, Kent is living with her husband Thomas CHILDS and her Thomas CHILDS aged 16 born Landport. RG10/1127  f.94  p.20


Regards,
Daisy

When Charles Childs married Ann Robinson  25/6/1855 Portsea, he is a widower and occupation is Greenwich Pensioner - Ann shown as a widow although her father Thomas also shown as Robinson.  Just states 'full age' for both.

1851 Census - Portsea

Charles Childs    42       Greenwich Pensioner             b. Portsea
Sarah Childs      34 (??think this should be 39 as she was 30 in 1841)   b. Portsea
John B. Childs     4
Sarah F. Childs    1

GRO births index shows maiden name of Sarah was 'Bonney'.

Charles Childs married Sarah Bonney 30/11/1828 Portsea - children born/baptised Portsea:

Charles bc.1828, bp.11/9/1830, buried 17/9/1830
Charles Bonney bp.18/5/1834
Sarah b.Mar.qtr.1839,d. Mar.qtr.1840

1841 Census - Portsea

Sarah Childs 30
Charles Childs 7    living with a Hannam family - Charles senior not with them (probably at sea).

Further children:

James Bonney b.1845, bur.21/10/1847
John Bonney b.1846, bp.29/7/1855
Sarah Frances b.19/9/1849, bp.10/2/1856
James Bonney b.16/8/1851, bp.10/2/1856
Mary Ann b.22/4/1853, bp.10/2/1856

We know that Charles remarried in 1855 so wife Sarah must be the one who died Dec.1854 Portsea aged 42.

By 1861 children John, Sarah, James and Mary are in Portsea Workhouse (as already stated) together with a Francis Joseph Childs - I completely agree with Daisypetal and believe this is actually Thomas Joseph and that enumerator made a mistake (there is no birth for a Francis Joseph Childs).

Can't easily see where Charles and Ann are in 1861 or if either, or both, had died since the children were all in the Workhouse.

Charles Childs bp.22/9/1808 Portsea, son of Joseph and Mary Ann.

I think this could be Charles in 1861, written as CHILD instead of CHILDS,


1861  RG9/653  f.6  p.9  Parish: Whippingham, Town: East Cowes, Isle of Wight
Ferry Boat Inn, Castle Street

Charles CHILD    Boarder    Mar    50    Mariner    Portsmouth, Hampshire

Head of household John GROVES.


and a possible death,

Charles CHILDS    Sep Q 1866    Alverstoke    2b  312
Age:  56
