Title: Beatrice Lilian Turner
Post by: Calpe 1704 on Saturday 11 July 20 17:44 BST (UK)
With the end of the trail of who i thought was a Violet Mary Hamblin (nee Turner), my grandmother,  ended up being a Violet Mabel Ellen Turner.

The search now begins for her ancestors with your help.

Her mother Beatrice Lilian Turner, born in Luton (1872~).
Father unknown.

Just to summarise in Calpe's absence, there is masses about Beatrice's likely parents George Henry and Emma Ellen Turner on the 35 page thread. None of them can be found in 1881 and Beatrice and Emma Ellen are nowhere to be seen in 1891.

Firstly, please allow for any name references, persons etc. i might forget to mention, it is not my intention. Just trying to get my head around so much information coming forward. With thanks in advance.

Richmond Parks told us, his G.R.O. Certificate arrived and it confirmed this of the birth of Beatrice Lilian Turner's daughter and where they were living in 1891.

District: Pancras, London_
Daughter was born, 18 June 1891 at 12 Chesterfield St.
Name - Violet Mabel Ellen
Sadly the Name & Surname of father is Blank.
Mother's name - Beatrice Lillian Turner, who was formally a Barwoman.
When registered: 30 July 1891.


Turn back the time to a very interesting brief video of footage of London streetlife in 1890: -
https://metro.co.uk/2015/04/22/incredible-antique-film-footage-from-1890-reveals-the-changing-face-of-london-life-5161892/ (https://metro.co.uk/2015/04/22/incredible-antique-film-footage-from-1890-reveals-the-changing-face-of-london-life-5161892/)

So there we have it one Beatrice Lilian Turner. Born Sept 1872, in Luton.

johnP-bedford, tells us that in Beatrice's birth index it shows her mother's maiden name was Reed.
Also that there was a marriage in Biggleswade Rd in 1869 of a George Henry Turner to a Emma Ellen Reed.
In the 1871 Census they are together at Langley Rd, Luton.  George is 24, born Langford, a baker and Emma is 18 born Biggleswade, no children.

What additional information apart from later census  for George & Emma is it that you are after
Title: Re: Beatrice Lilian Turner
Post by: johnP-bedford on Tuesday 14 July 20 09:05 BST (UK)
George Henry Turner age 22 and Emma Ellen Reed married in Biggleswade in Sept 1869.
On 1871 Census they are together at Langley Rd, Luton. George is 24, born Langford (1847), a baker and Emma is 18 born Biggleswade (1853), no children.

Back to 1861 in Langford is John Turner. blacksmith & wife Sarah plus family including George age 13. George is not with the family in 1851 but there is a 2 year old G H Turner, visitor to family named Hare, a baker, in nearby Henlow. George's father John Turner, blacksmith of Langford married a Sarah Hare on 24 June 1839 at St.Pancras church.

Meanwhile in 1861 in Shortmead Street, Biggleswade is Edith Reed, widow age 50, upholsterer with daughter Emma age 8 born Biggleswade. Back 10 years to 1851 at same address is Samuel Reed age 48, vetenary with wife Edith age 40 plus 6 children. Samuel died in Sept 1855 age 52.

Mother Edith was nee Taylor and is said to have married Samuel Reid at St.Georges Middlesex on 26 Sept 1831 (although I've not seen this anywhere). Samuel & Edith are on 1841 & 1851 censuses with their children who seem to have been baptised/married with Taylor in their names. There is a baptism at Biggleswade on 12 May 1811 of Edith, daughter of Samuel & Mary Taylor, saddler, born Feb 25th.

Regards John

To help out Calpe and  to save duplication: George Henry has been located from 1891 onwards  living in Marylebone with new wife Jane. Emma and Beatrice are missing in 1881 and 1891. There are known addresses for around time of 1881 census and in 1891 but they aren't there on census night. Information is on the long Hamblin thread from page 26 onwards.

I have ordered the wedding certificate:  George Henry Turner - Emma Ellen Reed

This is snail mail ordered 05/07/2020, (my only option), so don’t hold your breath.

I have ordered what hopefully proves to  be the main actor of this thread's birth cert.
I am fully aware Calpe has had this on order by post from April!! and has been chasing to no avail.
Its continued absence seems a major hinderance to progress.

Due to the understandable problems, likely to be ongoing  at the GRO.
This is a pdf upload order. Anothe recent  took 14 days to arrive in my inbox. Fingers crossed.

Also means the marriage cert for George Henry and Emma Ellen is the right as well. So all round good results.

It is a shame that both Blanche & Clarence died in 1880 so cannot be used to trace parents on 1881 census. Blanche died June 1880 age 0 & Clarence died Sept 1880 both in St.Pancras RD. Maybe the death index might reveal a more recent (to 1881) address of parents.

George Henry Turner age 22 and Emma Ellen Reed married in Biggleswade in Sept 1869.
On 1871 Census they are together at Langley Rd, Luton. George is 24, born Langford (1847), a baker and Emma is 18 born Biggleswade (1853), no children.
Back to 1861 in Langford is John Turner. blacksmith & wife Sarah plus family including George age 13. George is not with the family in 1851 but there is a 2 year old G H Turner, visitor to family named Hare, a baker, in nearby Henlow. George's father John Turner, blacksmith of Langford married a Sarah Hare on 24 June 1839 at St.Pancras church.
Meanwhile in 1861 in Shortmead Street, Biggleswade is Edith Reed, widow age 50, upholsterer with daughter Emma age 8 born Biggleswade. Back 10 years to 1851 at same address is Samuel Reed age 48, vetenary with wife Edith age 40 plus 6 children. Samuel died in Sept 1855 age 52.
Mother Edith was nee Taylor and is said to have married Samuel Reid at St.Georges Middlesex on 26 Sept 1831 (although I've not seen this anywhere). Samuel & Edith are on 1841 & 1851 censuses with their children who seem to have been baptised/married with Taylor in their names. There is a baptism at Biggleswade on 12 May 1811 of Edith, daughter of Samuel & Mary Taylor, saddler, born Feb 25th.
Regards John

Apologies to you all for not recognising your valuable inputs and not having got back earlier.
Queries to this post if i may (other queries to the other posts coming), as i really need to get my teeth around so much information and enter the facts on my Family Tree Maker PC program.

I have rewritten the vast information John has kindly posted but i need to place things so they appear clearer to me. Can they please be checked and confirmed?

George H. Turner, 22 & Emma E. Reed married in Biggleswade Sept. 1869.
1871 Census living together at Langley Rd, Luton, George, born 1847 in Langford, age 24 and Emma Ellen Reed was born 1853 is aged 18.

In 1861 there is a John Turner in Langford, a Blacksmith & his wife Sarah. Family (how many & names etc?) includes George aged 13.

In 1851 George for some reason is not with the family? Is it known why? The 1871 Census says he was born in 1847, therefore he would have only been 4 years old?

In 1851 'there is a 2 year old G H Turner, visitor to family named Hare, a baker, in nearby Henlow'.
Again going by the 1871 Census George would have been 4? What does it mean 'a visitor'?

So George H. Turner's father was John Turner, a Blacksmith of Langford. How is it known that John Turner was George's father, and a Blacksmith?

So on 24/06/1839 George Turner's father, John Turner married a Sarah Hare at St. Pancras Church Bedfordshire?

In 1861, in Shortmead St, Biggleswade is a Edith Reed, widow, age 50, an upholsterer, is with her daughter Emma, age 8, born in Biggleswade. So this would make Emma's birth year 1853 as per 1871 Census.

10 years earlier in 1851, same Shortmead St, is a Samuel Reed, age 48, a Vet with his wife Edith & 6 children. Samuel died Sept. 1855, age 52. Birth year would then be approx. 1803?

Edith Reed, nee Taylor apparently married Samuel Reid (or Reed?) at St. George's Middx, 26/09/1831.

1841 & 1851 Census both Edith and Samuel are listed with their children, whom apparently were baptised/married with Taylor in their names?

Lastly, John kindly tells us that on 12/05/1811 Edith is baptised in Biggleswade, daughter of Samuel & Mary Taylor, saddler, born Feb 25th, 1811.

That must be him. Hare is a family name. Didn't he have a daughter something Hare Turner who is with him in 1911? Haven't got time to check back at moment. Wouldn't worry about the age discrepancy, that was probably their best guess! Visitor would mean he was visiting on the night of the census.

In 1851 G.H. Turner age 2 born Langford was Visitor to, I think, his maternal grandmother's family headed by Ann Hare age 62 widow, baker & having 6 of her unmarried children still living there. Back 10 years to 1841 Ann Hare is age 50 a baker, nobody there of an age to be her husband, but she still had 7 children in the household. On Sarah Hare's marriage to John Turner on 24 June 1839 it says her father was Thomas Hare, dead.... a Thomas Hare was buried Henlow on 22 Apr 1839 aged 56. However cannot find marriage of Thomas Hare to Ann in around 1814-1815, based on ages of oldest children in the censuses.   

Meanwhile John & Sarah Turner who married in 1839 are in Langford on 1841 census with 1 year old son William. In 1851 they are still in Langford with 11 year old William, plus Thomas 5 & Elizabeth 9. On 1861 census in Langford, John & Sarah with George age 13, plus 6 other children.

“The George Henry Turner we know was a house painter as per 1891, 1901 & 1911 census, also in 1882-1884 when he was in Foley Street fathering 2 Pope children, and before that in Nov 1879 when he & wife Emma were in Charlotte Street as per Beds Archives record. We've not found him in 1881 census. Before that in 1871 in Luton he was a baker.”   

It is a shame that both Blanche & Clarence died in 1880 so cannot be used to trace parents on 1881 census. Blanche died June 1880 age 0 & Clarence died Sept 1880 both in St.Pancras RD. Maybe the death index might reveal a more recent (to 1881) address of parents.   
I'll leave this here.

“I was a bit puzzled about the reference to a marriage, certainly can't find one. I've not found anything useful from Mrs Murray's address. 
In addition I still can't find Emma, George Henry or Beatrice in 1881.

 Pretty sure Calpe turned this up when much less was known. I cannot recall it being tested further or discounted.
North London Collegigate School, remained at Camden St London NW1, between 1850-1930.  Her birth date would make our BLT 14 in 1886. UK's first charitable school opened specifically for girls.

During the summer period it's so hard to get into depth, and with so much information from you all. A late thanks.

Not wanting to show my ignorance but from the cutting i posted some time ago of Beatrice, we see that she attended a charitable school: -
University of London Student Records 47594_B377767-00161.
Why would she have been sent to the North London Collegiate School? In attendance June 1886, aged 14.

Have you an address where the birth took place ?
Also 1939 Register has her birth as 7th July 1872 although looking at the image month could be a 9 rather than a 7?

Thanks John. It is definitely a 1872 birth. As written on certificate - 'Seventh September 1872, London Road, Luton, Beds'.  As can be seen in reply 24.

Thanks rosie99 nipping this error in the bud.
Stains! the typo from hell to both Staines residents & their estate agents alike.  ;D
A spelling conflict maybe exists in Hamblin thread entering early as  2008. Beatrice & Henry's eldest son Henry George Hamblins wife Sophie Street.
Looking broadly on BMD for Henry & Beatrices "marriage", both inexpertly & despite myself, Henry jnr & Sophies  marriage index appeared: Hamblin Henry G   Streat Brentford 3a 356a.
I am poor judge to weigh what is/not relevent, but....

Typo errors of the Registrar or that he mis-interpreted the name when it was asked and then spelt it as he thought it was spelt. In another thread my Grand Father's surname was Clare, but the Registrar spelt it as Clear! A nightmare for the researchers.

Many thanks too, to all you posters who have gone out of their way to help on this thread.

I feel now that it would be a good idea to filter facts about George Henry Turner, who had married Emma Ellen Reed, but then later was with a lady called Jane.

We now know that Samuel Reed married a Edith Taylor 26/09/1831. But Edith appears to have had 6 children, 5 of whom appear to have their surname as Taylor, and one being Emma Ellen. Was Emma Ellen a Reed or a Taylor by birth?

Samuel Reed & Edith Taylor had 6 children on 1851 census, Mary age 15, Anne 13, Samuel 10, Thomas 8, Eliza Ann 4 & Edith 6 months (the first 3 repeat on 1841 census). They are all have surname Reed, however apart from Edith they all have an additional first name of Taylor, this is as per their baptisms & later marriages from parish registers. Father Samuel died in 1855 & on 1861 census widow Edith is with 8 year old daughter Emma who I've not seen with first name Taylor apart from those records from the Beds Archives catalogue.

You've kindly given the names, ages etc but i'm at a loss about their surnames and having an additional first name of Taylor etc.
So how would their names be written?
It's just i have things clear and then to be able to enter all the information in my Family Tree Maker program.

As for Edith's 8 year old daughter (1861 Census), Emma, (born 1853?) the father is assumed to be Samuel Reed, who passed away in 1855.

You've mentioned that "as per their baptisms & later marriages from parish registers".

While she may be Beatrice's daughter is there any proof that Henry Hamblin was the natural father? as she may have met up with HH after the birth

Thank you for your response.
The problem with my grandmother, was the variation of names ive seen on documents.
But i believe that was cleared up when Richmond Parks obtained her birth certificate.

On Violet Mabel Turner (birth surname) marriage certificate her name is entered as: -
Mary Violet Hamblin.
Father's full name is entered as Henry Hamblin, Taxi driver.

There is no proof yet that Henry was the father.

Violet Mabel married in Dublin, 1920, aged 29.

Their surname is REED and they have an additional first name of TAYLOR

Mary 1835, Ann 1838, Samuel 1843 & Thomas 1843 were baptised at Biggleswade as Reed in the years quoted with Taylor as additional first name.
Mary was married in 1858 in Biggleswade   
Samuel was married in 1865 in Bigggleswade

Eliza Ann Taylor Reed was baptised in Luton in 1866 & married in Luton in 1868

These are all as the Beds FHS Surnames Index CD, some correlated to entries on FamilySearch
You will need to verify using the Biggleswade & Luton parish registers

From the Beds FHS Biggleswade baptism transcripts (1637-1852), for parents Samuel & Edith:

Baptisms - St Andrew, Biggleswade:
20 May 1832 - Mary Taylor REED; cow leach
26 Jan 1834 - Sarah REED; farrier
22 Nov 1835 - Mary Taylor REED; cow leach
09 Sep 1835 - Ann Taylor REED; cow leach
06 Jun 1841 - Samuel Taylor READ; farrier; privately
04 Jun 1843 - Samuel REED; farrier; born 31 Dec 1840
04 Jun 1843 - Thomas Taylor REED; farrier; born 02 Mar 1843

As John says, the baptisms are recorded under the name REED/READ.


FamilySearch does have images of the register but you have to access the site from certain locations, so not much use from home unfortunately. I don't believe there's any other online source for the images (no doubt John would have already mentioned it if there was).
