Marriage of Charles WOOD and Eliza WEBB
« on: Wednesday 29 November 17 21:06 GMT (UK) »
Hi ALL,

Help needed in trying to locate a marriage of a Charles WOOD(b.????) and Elia WEBB(b.1844 Harescombe?, Gloustershire)(both my x2 GGP).

They had 4 children, Harry Charles b.1873, Frederick(b.1876), Eliza Emily(b.1877), Sophia Rose(b.1880) and Edith Maria(b.1885). On Harry's, Eliza, Sophia and Edith's birth certifcates it states that Charles WOOD is their father and their mother is Eliza WOOD formerly WEBB.

Charles occupation was a carpenter then a carman(stated on birth certificates). The 1881 census shows Eliza the head of the family with Henry, Frederick, Eliza Emily and Sophia Rose living in Westmoor Green, Tatsfield, Surrey but no Charles. Eliza's occupation was a Laundrress.

Then in the 1891 census, Eliza is the head of the family with Frederick, Emily, Sophia and Edith, now living at 27 Forester Road, St.Saviours, Croydon , Surrey and again no Charles however, she now lists her condition as Widow.

I did find one marriage certificate for a Charles WOOD and Elizabeth WEBB in 1884 at Pains Hill Chapel(Baptists), Godstone, Surrey but their ages don't add up(too young especially Eliza) plus Eliza was born to Eliza WEBB her mother but no father registered so father sataed on this marriage cert I belive is incorrect. Eliza was baptised in 1859(full age) at Limpsfield, Surrey. Although her stated birthplace on the 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1881 is given as Hunscombe/Hurst, Gloucestershire, which I can't figure out as well, as her mother was born in Surrey to a John WEBB and Mary HALL.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Jon

 I think the 1871 ref is RG10, 838, 50, 7  In Tatsfield with mother and stepfather ELiza and Joseph Gilbert. Surname transcibed on ancestry as Well

Yes, that 1871 reference is correct as Eliza Gilbert is her mother Eliza WEBB. Note on the same page the eldest daughter Ellen Elizabeth(now WOOD) is recorded as grand daughter living with Joseph and Eliza GILBERT.

Jon

Ah yes.  I see there's a baby Ellen Elizabeth Webb aged 1 in 1871, who seems to be Eliza's:

Baptised at Tatsfield, 3 Apr 1870

Ellen Elizabeth Webb, daughter of Eliza, of Tatsfield.
