Daniel Francis Reardon
« on: Wednesday 24 January 18 17:07 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I am looking for a man who I cannot find in any census returns.

Daniel Francis Reardon married Emily Elizabeth Marian Thomas on 22 September 1884 in Bromley, London. On the marriage note it says that Daniel is 28 I believe, son of John Reardon (A Bricklayer), a Mariner, of 38 St. Leonards Avenue.

Together with Emily I believe I have found 6 children registered -

Ellen Emily Thomas Reardon, Jan-Mar 1886 Poplar, Middlesex.
Agnes Mary/Mercy Reardon, born 19 Apr. 1888, 6 Spring Hill, Longton, Staffordshire.
Eugene Daniel Francis Reardon, Jul-Sept 1894 Southampton, Hampshire.
James Richard Reardon, Jul-Sept 1898 Cardiff, Glamorgan.
George William, 3 Jul. 1899 Worcester, Worcestershire.
Emily Elizabeth, Jan-Mar 1906 Reading, Berkshire.

All of the birth records for the children and the marriage records for Daniel & Emily were found on Andrews Newspaper Index Cards.

The family appear in no census returns, apart from the mother Emily who appears prior to her marriage to Daniel Reardon, with her parents Abraham Thomas & Emily Tittle.

I'm wondering if maybe they were travellers? Irish travellers perhaps.

Emily Died 26th Apr. 1940 in Bath, Somerset. Cannot find death record for Daniel.

Thanks - Keelan

The 1881 census has a Daniel F Riordan aged 23, single, born Hartlepool, Durham, an AB Seaman aboard the Aginccourt - RG11/5635/50/10.

Age is slightly out, but fits otherwise so worth looking into further perhaps?

An Agnes Mercy Reardon marries Joseph Curley in 4th qtr 1907 Bristol.

Check 1911 Census Bristol, one of her brothers is living with her.

Thanks so much, Just a simple name variation it seems.

His daughter Agnes is a great grandmother of my friend, her husband Joseph abandoned her and her children and had another family in London.

Any ideas why the family might not be in any census returns? Apart from Agnes/Richard.

Not sure if it is the Durham one yet.

It is odd that there are seemingly no sightings in any census until 1911.
Although the family moved around, Iím not convinced they were travellers according to Danielís occupations.
Has your friend purchased any birth certificates or Agnesí  marriage certificates for addresses and occupations?

Did find this in the Hampshire advertiser 10th Nov 1897, just the Christian names caught my eye and possibly your Daniel was around Southampton at that time.  "Eugene Francis Daniel Reardon, a dealer was charged with being drunk and disorderly in Bassett yesterday"
