William Vickers c 1823 Vauxhall/Lambeth
« on: Thursday 08 February 18 19:51 GMT (UK) »
Have come to a dead end with one ancestor/
William Vickers born c 1823 either Vauxhall/Lambeth/Wandsworth (he changes his mind in census, it may even be none of these)
I think married c 1851 Battersea.
Wife Eliza/Elizabeth born either Battersea or Collingbourne, Wiltshire. She also changes her mind.
Their children - Jane, Harriett, Ann, Julia (my grt gran), Amelia and George.
I have a possible mother for him as Susannah Vickers nee ?
Cannot find him in 1841, 1851 or 1861.
In 1871 he lived at 23 Ann Street, Battersea, Wandsworth.
In 1881 he lived at the same house but the street name changed to Linda Street.
In 1891 Eliza is a widow at the same address.
Any help would be very much appreciated, thanks.

Hi Mike

Is this your Julia please?

Births Dec 1865   
Vickers    Julia        Wandsworth    1d   472   

If so, MMN on the new GRO Index is COX.

Name:                 Mother's Maiden Surname:    Order: 
VICKERS, JULIA       COX     Order
GRO Reference: 1865  D Quarter in WANDSWORTH  Volume 01D  Page 472

Wandsworth was the RD for Battersea.

I've come up with an alternate theory.

there's a marriage in Lambeth in 1852 including William Francis Vickers and Eliza Jane Vass Goldsmith  [edited]

Q4 1853 Eliza Jane b Wandsworth mmn Goldsmith
Q1 1859 Harriet Sarah b Wandsworth mmn Goldsmith

Then in 1863 in Lambeth theres a marriage including Francis William Vickers and  Eliza Cox

First Vickers-Cox child is b 1864

Thanks guys but I don't think that's right one.
Because - Jane 1853, Harriett 1858, Ann 1865, Julia 1867, Amelia 1868 & George 1870.

The William Vickers given as a seaman, later became a wealthy ship owner. That's not my William.
I have now found a marriage - William Vickers & Elizabeth Collings 1852 Bermondsy but nothing else to tie them in.

Are you sure - seems a bit odd as he's a labourer in 1858

There's a death for Frances William Vickers b c1819 in Wandsworth, 1885
