The Head Family in the Heddington Wiltshire area
« on: Sunday 04 February 18 00:23 GMT (UK) »
Hello
   I'm new to the Chat boards and hoping that this could be what helps break a mystery on my mothers family line.
   
   Henry Richard Head (b:1860, m:1885, d:1908)  is one of my Great Grandfathers, he was born in Heddington, Wiltshire, England and Married Eliza Vidler and died in London, Middlesex, England.
   
   Any help would be of great help
   Thank You

Welcome to rootschat

You are not clear what information you are after, you appear to have his birth/marriage/death.

If you have not got the marriage which would give information to take you further back Henry's father is named as John Head (dead) - Eliza's is George Vidler occ signalman.

Going by the census posted by solidrock,  I wonder if this is him

Births Sep 1859 
Henry Munday Head    (no mothers maiden name showing on birth reg index)   
Calne    5a   70

This would fit the other grandson John
JOHN  MUNDY HEAD    (no mothers maiden name)     
1857  June Quarter in CALNE  Volume 05A  Page 70   

It is quite common for people to have additional christian names and 'fictitious fathers when they marry

This may not have any bearing on the matter, but; http://www.wiltshire-opc.org.uk/Items/Heddington/Heddington%20-%20Bastardy%20Examination%20Head%20v%20Clifford%201860-1861.pdf

Good find.  I think this is the Ann Head age 20 in 1861, it mentions Mary as Grandmother and Ann c1831 & Louisa (wife of John c1824) as aunts.
