Fanny Sneath born Stamford c.1860-1865?
« on: Sunday 29 October 17 14:57 GMT (UK) »
I'm having difficulty with finding any trace of "Fanny Sneath" in birth/baptismal records. She married John Alexander Brown, 14/4/1886, City of London and bore 2 children, James Alexander 1886-1887 and Catherine Grace 1887-1978. The 1891/1901/1911 census returns all have Fanny born Stamford, Rutland, but GRO birth records do not appear to help although I have been misled by Ann Feary Sneath who appears as Ann Fanny Sneath in 1881 census but she marries another, I think!

I'd very much appreciate a bit of help, please.

John Alexander Brown appears to have died before 1911 census and if anybody could pinpoint which year...1907 or 1910, that, too, would be appreciated. Many thanks.

Does her marriage give any information on her father.  Who were the witnesses

I wonder if she could be the Ann Weed Sneath born Dec.qtr. 1863 Stamford?
Census shows she was the daughter of Henry Sneath and Elizabeth Weed - mother died 1874 and in 1881 Ann is working as a servant - after this I can't find her so did she become 'Fanny'?

Thanks all for the pointer towards Ann Weed Sneath and for the probate info that I missed.

I'll try for more marriage details and that might corroborate...or not.

Nothing appears on-line I can find for the 1886 Marriage so you will have to get the 1886 M/C to confirm her Fathers name/occp.

The MC doesn't give too much info apart from father, Henry, Farm Servant/Steward; this might indicate Henry Sneath whose first wife was Elizabeth Weed, thence Ann Weed Sneath = "Fanny" Sneath...whose birth varies from 1861 to 1864 on census returns from 1891/1901/1911...as for witnesses: Charles Mansell & Alfred A Hunt? One might have thought her "Weed" middle name might have made things more obvious. Death records for a Fanny Brown might help, but which one should I choose to throw more cash to GRO? 1925? Thanks again to all for your help.
