London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Alfred Arthur Stammers
« on: Friday 10 July 20 12:31 BST (UK)  »
I would like to find more information about Alfred Arthur Stammers and  his correct parents. What I have starts with his daughter Alice
Her birth certificate states Alice Stammers b 13th October 1880 14 Basing Road, Peckham
Parents  Alfred Arthur Stammers & Ann Amelia Stammers formerly Lever. Alfred was a painter.
1881 census
14 Basing Place, Peckham
Arthur Stammers 30 Painter Southwark           born 1851
Anna Stammers 28 Clerkenwell
John Stammers 7 Walworth
Arthur Stammers 6 Bermondsey
William Stammers 3 Walworth
Alice Stammers 1 Walworth

Marriage of Alfred & Ann
29th December 1872 Bethnal Green
Alfred Stammers full age bachelor bricklayer Bethnal Green
father John Thomas Stammers deceased
Ann Lever 20 spinster Bethnal Green Joseph Thomas Lever parchment maker
Witnesses were Eliza Lever & Frederick Penny, Ann's  sister and her future husband

Children of Alfred & Ann
John Joseph 1874-1968
Alfred Arthur 1876-1956
William 1878
Alice 1880
Henry 1882-1956 Registered 1883 Lewisham
I have not found any of the family on the 1891 Census

5th June 1891 Alice is admitted to Evelina hospital, address 35 Harris Street, Camberwell and  Alfred dies at that address 3rd October 1891 aged 46. Informant was Emma Lever, his mother in law of 20 Acorn Street, Camberwell. Both addresses checked on 1891 census.
From the children's marriages
Listed as Alfred Arthur Stammers and builder/ painter/ master bricklayer.
Last address from school record of William  9 Kirkland Road, Camberwell but 3 addresses 1883-85. Can't find Kirkland Road in 1891.
Not much to go on for his year or place of birth so any suggestions welcome.
Ancestry trees suggest he is the son of John Thomas Stammers & Elizabeth Chandler and there is a baptism for Alfred 1837 which could be him if he is their son but a big age difference and no proof.
This has been asked about in 2010/2011 by Teddy P but still unsolved.
Thank you for reading this and hope someone can help.

Any suggestions welcome, Thanks for reading this.

Looking to locate Elizabeth in 1891 under one of three surnames.
Born Elizabeth Payne 26-3-1863 in Wisbech district
1871 in Rutland with parents Thomas & Sarah
1881 General servant in pub in Leeds, Yorkshire
27-3-1882 Back in Grantham, Lincolnshire where her parents settled and Elizabeth married John Watkin
1891 Missing
1901 & 1911 Elizabeth is living in Balderton, Newark, Nottinghamshire as the wife of Thomas Bird.
 Her niece Fanny Kemp is also with them.

1911 Census states 25 years married, no children but in fact they didn't marry until 22-7-1916 with Elizabeth Watkin as a widow. This was the year after Fanny married.

I can't find Elizabeth, John or Thomas in 1891

John born 1860 Grantham a boilermaker is with his family before the marriage but disappears after 1882, no children found

Thomas born 1861 Newark was a bricklayer

Can anyone see Elizabeth or the two men in her life?

Thank you, Comberton

London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Eveleigh Deaths 1882-1891
« on: Tuesday 12 December 17 21:23 GMT (UK)  »
Iím looking for the correct death of William Auton Eveleigh
Born April-June 1839 Langport, Somerset
I have all the census, birth & marriage registration records all confirm his full name.
Last seen on census 1881
The Rose, 22 Russell Street, Bermondsey
William Eveleigh 42   Licensed victualler
Ellen Eveleigh 38
Archibald Eveleigh 12
Robert Eveleigh 10
Louis Eveleigh 7
Arthur Eveleigh 2
Frank Eveleigh 3 weeks

15th February 1883 last child born reg. district St George Hanover Square
25th September 1885 School registration for Arthur (as William, his third name ) & Frank.
Parent listed as William. Address 19 Hetley Road, Fulham

1891 family still at 19 Hetley Road, Ellen is a widow.
1902 marriage of son Archibald lists father deceased

Several trees have this death
William Eveleigh
Jan 1884
St Giles
1b 388
So I ordered the PDF but itís not him, the address & wife match another William also found in 1881.
Next I tried
Frank William Auton Eveleigh
Apr 1884
1a 124
As this is the name William gave to two of his sons, it interested me. Unfortunately the informant is the coroner after an inquest.
Details from the PDF
Died June 15th 1884 at 109 Adrian Terrace, Kensington
Aged 45 Licensed victualler

Newspaper report of inquest in West London Observer 21st June 1884
Wife mentioned but not by name, she said they had only moved there the day before the death after he had disposed of his business in Westminster. Friends paid for the removal of the body so possible money problems, he was said to be a drinker.

Can anyone find this Frank William Auton Eveleigh anywhere else or help find my Williamís death?

Many thanks for your interest.
