John Hoy c.1821-1904 - wife & children?
« on: Wednesday 01 November 17 15:30 GMT (UK) »
Stuck again...John Hoy of Colne Engaine appears in census records 1841-1901 inc. I wonder if anybody can confirm his wife's maiden name, please? Some folk suggest Stock & others Wilkinson. There appear to be 3 children: George c.1843, Ellen c.1852 & James c.1857 all born Colne Engaine as are their parents according to census returns. I can find a marriage record for Hoy/Wilkinson, q4 1839 Halstead but not a single suitable/fitting birth record for any of those children. Ellen appears to be the 2nd wife of Edward Hardy, Miller, of Toppesfield and appears to be childless by him. George may have married an Emma Hayward and James, well I'm still looking for him beyond 1871. I'd appreciate any info but it's a bit of a distant branch arrived at through William Hardy of Toppesfield...4 wives and no apparent children...yet another story!

I was hoping Emma Chaplin, Neice and visitor with the Hoys may have been related to John Hoy.

But she is the Daug of William/Lucy Chaplin;;
(1841 Census)

Marriage;
14 October 1831, Colne Engaine, Essex
William CHAPLIN to Lucy WILKINSON

LUCY Wilkinson christened 20 March 1814 Earls Colne to Elias/Mary
Marriage;
9 November 1813, Earls Colne, Essex, Elias to Mary EVERETT

They are east to find on 1841/1861 Census.

In case you dont have the 1841 Census;
John HAY   20 Ag Lab
Eliza Hay   20
