John Dodd 1848-1905
« on: Monday 26 February 18 15:53 GMT (UK) »
Looking for information on John Dodd 1848-1905. More Specifically his Wife whose Maiden name initials may be F.M.H. His daughter is Ellen Anne Brown (Dodd) ??? (1891-1954) married to Albert Thomas Brown in Farnham Surrey 3rd quarter of 1912. John's wife seems to be a ghost. The only possible I have come up with is a Sarah Baskeyfield which doesn't quite fit. His wife had 6 or 7 other children besides Ellen Anne who I believe is probably the oldest. I can't seem to find any other info on John Dodd's wife though. Any help would be appreciated

Where have you found the family?  Is Ellen on a census with her parents?  Or her birth reg to see what her mums maiden name was?  Where did the F M H come from?  Where was Ellen born? How do you know her father was John, and then his birth and death years?

Tell us what you have found, so we don't go over old ground.

Perhaps he didn't have a wife  :-\

Have you found birth registrations for the children?  That should give the mothers maiden name.

Will have a look - would you know where Ellen Anne was born?  :)

Have you got the names of the other children so we can cross reference the mothers name?

Using that info there is a Caroline Anne Dodd Dec 1894

Norah Agnes in Sep 1901 but that one in Farnham

Boys in Farnham
John Joseph Mar 1899
Arthur Richard Sep 1903
Harry Daniel Sep 1905

but you say John died in 1905 so if these are the right children that should be the last one.

There is also an Archalaus Dodd, mmn Webster bn 1889 Hartley Witney

Here is that family on 1891
2 Gloucester Cottages Farnborough
Archelus Dodd 42 Gen lab bn Warwick
Annie 25 bn Sheffield
Archelus 2 bn Farnborough

Seeing as Ellen gave her pob as Farnborough on the census, I would say it is worth looking deeper.

Where did you get her father as John (1848-1905) from, and her mum as F M H?
