Archibald Stevenson/Stephenson - Ireland
« on: Friday 29 December 17 12:34 GMT (UK) »
I have hit a brick wall
Looking for Archabald Stevenson/Stephenson born in Ireland, I cannot find any trace back to his birth, parents, area, passenger list.
He married Elizabeth Pegden, Event Date: 14 Aug 1809 Parish: Woolwich St Mary Magdalene
Borough: Greenwich.
He then married Eleanor Davis, Marriage Date:   21 Oct 1827 Marriage Place: Lee, Kent, England
This is the only census I can find with his family on
1841 Census Street   Unity Place Woolwich Dockyard
Parish or township   Woolwich   Greenwich
Archabold Stevenson Male   55   1786   Ireland Labourer   
Eleanor   Stevenson Female   35   1806   Kent   
Archabold Stevenson Male    20   1821   Kent    Labourer
John    Stevenson Male 9 1832   Kent   
Edmund   Stevenson Male 5   1836   Kent
Archive reference   HO107
Piece number   493 Book number   3
Folio number   26 Page number   48

He then dies age 67 Death Date:   27 Dec 1848 registered 1849
Death Place:   Plumstead, Kent, England hes death date on here would make his birth 1781?

Would love some help to break through this
thank you Julia Stephenson

1851 census has wife Ellenor with new husband Richard Rawlings
HO107 / 1590 f302 p24

You will not find passenger lists between Ireland & England. I wonder if he was in the Army before his first marriage in Greenwich/Woolwich  :-\

Thank you for replying Rosie

do you think this would be the only way to britain, if no passenger lists?

I did look that up but none of the birth dates fit, even though I am not sure his correct date/year and if I did come across anything I don't no  what I would match against?   but thank you so much anything to break this.

Take care Julia

There would have been sailings from Ireland to England other than him being in the Army but there are no records of them.  I only suggested the army because of the location of his first marriage being near an army barracks

'Northern Ireland' was suggested here but surname variations could be Stephens, Stevens, Steenson, Steen, etc.

Since Ireland was part of U.K. no records were kept, as rosie99 said, of people travelling between Ireland and Scotland, Wales and England.

Have you tried searching newspapers? I've quite a few records of Irish men from Londonderry & Antrim stationed in Kent who appear in their local newspapers announcing marriages, deaths and career details.
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.
