Owen Tomlinson 1826 - 1879
« on: Wednesday 06 December 17 09:09 GMT (UK) »
Could someone please help me find the connection between my great grandfather, Owen Tomlinson (1826 - 1879) and George Tomlinson (born 1845 or 6) who was staying with Owen's widow in Wimbledon on the night of the 1881 Census?

So far looking at the marriage of
George Tomlinson, on 1881
to Louisa Opie Carter
married 04/03/1876 Wimbledon, Kingston
George's father is shown as John Tomlinson

In this 1881 census Caroline's children seem to have been registered at various places

I looked at  registrations
Caroline Annie, Sarah Elizabeth, mother's maiden name Wade, so we need to look further back as to where John Tomlinson father to George originated from

What other information do you have to save searching unnecessarily?

There's an 1880 entry for an Owen Tomlinson, Derwent House, Wimbledon - your Owen? Might the will include reference to a George?

1851 census has Owen born in Heaths, Derbyshire. He is a carpenter, married to Caroline.

1861 census has him born in Heaths (but transcribed as Devon!), Journeyman Carpenter.

1871 census, Owen is a builder, born Derbyshire.

Sister-in-law Fanny Wade is staying with Owen & Caroline. She is single, and born in France.

Owen & Caroline Wade marry in 1850, Camberwell.
