Hello - just to clarify, the Ann Kempson with Charlotte in the 1851 census was a granddaughter - Charlotte's daughter Mary had married a Joseph Kempson. The William that Charlotte married in 1852 was Joseph's uncle.

Ah yes - just seen that Mary and Ann Kempson were at the same address as James & Charlotte Emmings and family in 1841, though marked as a separate household.

An Eliza Puckridge married in Q/E Jun 1874 in West Ham Reg Dist -- wonder if this was William's daughter? Can't see her in 1871 though at the moment.

Looks like that Eliza married a Charles Owen. Have eliminated the other possible spouse from there being children of his surname with the other bride's mmn

Can't find them yet  - or  any children

 ??? What a puzzle, looking for William picked ( I believe) the incorrect marriage a William Bonwick HEMINGS who married 12th March 1863 Tilsworth to a Ruth Sears, looks to be the other William on 1841 b c 1840/1, have him in 1881 as William B Emmens with Ruth
RG11/1639/126/6
Was his mother the Jane in 1841?

EDIT Yes a Jane Hemmings married William Bonwick 5th January 1843 Tilsworth

Okay - looking at the baptisms of Charlotte's children (all from her first marriage to James Hemmings), I think we have:

John 28 Feb 1814, Bow Brickhill
Joseph 7 Apr 1817, Little Brickhill
James 10 Aug 1817, Tilsworth - mother's name given as Caroline
Mary Ann 30 Jan 1820, Tilsworth - mother's name given as Caroline
Jane 1 Sep 1822, Tilsworth
Rebecca 6 Feb 1825, Tilsworth
William 23 Dec 1827, Tilsworth
Phoebe 4 Jun 1830, Tilsworth
Susannah 3 Mar 1834, Tilsworth

With Charlotte seemingly recorded as Caroline on a couple of occasions, I also notice this marriage:

m. William Charles HARRIS & Caroline PUCKRIDGE, September Quarter 1874, West Ham Registration District, Volume 4a, page 53

In the same district and the quarter after the Eliza Puckridge marriage that Pennines spotted. Can anyone see work out who that couple are, or find that marriage to check it online? Not obviously leaping out at me - may need to fork out 9.25 again if not.

Thanks

Thanks Keyboard - I think you've found enough to rule out the 1874 marriage from further consideration. Well done.

I'll have to keep looking for what became of Charlotte after 1861.

Thanks
