Great Great Grandmothers name
« on: Sunday 28 January 18 18:50 GMT (UK) »
Can somebody please help with name of a great great grandmother as shown in the 1851 census.
My great great grandfather is shown as William Henry Clark. The line under him is for his wife it cannot be read as the letters do not make a sensible name. The third line is his son also called William.

I have attached an image of the census writing.

Anybody's help would be greatly appreciated.

Name looks like Alfrede  :-\ and name above is William H. Clark (not William Henry Clark)
Can you give reference to the census record please.

William H. Clark was bc.1818 Maidstone and in 1861 he's in Newington with wife correctly shown as Ann.

MARRIAGE, Familysearch.Org;
17 March 1845, Minster in Sheppey, Kent
William Henry CLARK, Father HENRY CARL Clark
Ann BEAVERSTOCK, Father WM Beaverstock

ANN Beverstock christened 20 March 1825 Chatham to WILLIAM/MARY
(F/S.Org)

1841 Census
Chatham, Kent
William Beverstock, 50, Ropemaker
Eliza Beverstock, 40
ANN Beverstock, 16
Eliza Beverstock, 13
Mary Beverstock, 10
Francis Beverstock, 7
Robert Beverstock, 3
Thos Beverstock, 5 days


BEVERSTOCK, ROBERT, Mothers maiden name HIX ****
GRO Reference: 1838  M Quarter in MEDWAY UNION  Volume 05  Page 332

BEVERSTOCK, THOMAS, Mothers mn HICKS **
GRO Reference: 1841  J Quarter in MEDWAY  Volume 05  Page 338

Now 1825 Christening has MARY as Mother of ANN

1841 Census Mother of children appears to be Elizabeth.

William may have married 2 Hix/Hicks women.

30 June 1818, Saint Margaret, Rochester, Kent, to MARY Hix

22 October 1827, High Halstow, Kent, to ELIZABETH Hix

If you look at Familysearch.Org we have christened Chatham to WILLIAM/MARY
Ann Elizabeth 1819 (possible burial 1821)
William 1821
Robert Thomas 1823, buried 26 April 1823
Ann 1825***
Then to WILLIAM/ELIZABETH in Chatham
Elizabeth 1828
Mary 1831
Frances 1833
Robert 1836, buried 27 July 1836
Robert 1838
Thomas 1841

Possible burial for Mary;
Age 27 (1798)

Eanfrith, Anfrith, Alfrede or Elfrede = Ælfthryth

Ann (Ean) for short or Freda (alternate pronounced Fred or Freddie [Fred-de]- spelt Fredd or Frede)

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth
