Trying to locate my Henning family in Hull
« on: Tuesday 13 March 18 18:38 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I have a Henning line in Hull one of whom, my gg grandfather Charles Henning is a brick wall. I know he married Ann Wilson (Levett) in 1859 and my g grandfather William Robert Henning was born the following year. I have Charles on the 1861 census but after that all I have is that when his wife passed away in 1880 she was named as "wife of" on her death cert. Any tips much appreciated.

Cheers
Steve

1859 Marriage was at all saints sculcoates.
What age, occupation, address,  witneses appear there?

Where does the levett name come in?

Nor can i see them in 1861. Can you provide the references,  or a direct link on familysearch?

Hi Steve

I understand that you already have the 1861 but I posted it so that others don't have to search for it.  Before we go forward to search for him we need as much information as possible - such as age, occupation & place of birth - which the 1861 & the marriage certificate both provide.

The 1861 census shows him as being a ship's carpenter, whch, in the days of wooden sailing ships, could entail his being away at sea.

This website has the 1881 crew list database of all British ships.

I see there are some with the surname Henning.  As most official British records were required to state full name, he might not be noted as Charles/Charlie/Chas but that name would be reflected as an initial "C" for a middle name.

The logs are displayed as images, which is a bit of an eye strain.

It may be worth investigating the Charles Henning born Norway c1833 who appears on the New York census from 1870 onwards, running a boarding house for sailors.

Thanks for the crew lists link dont see any evidence that my Charles is amongst them.

I have already investigated and discounted the New York one, wife and daughters were born in Germany and the ages would count aginst it being my Charles.
