London and Middlesex / Susannah BROOKING 1809-??
« on: Monday 10 June 24 12:34 BST (UK)  »
Susannah PERRY was born 15 Feb 1809 at St George in the East.

On 5 April 1839 at St Pancras Church she married James BROOKING. James was born c1810 at Buckland in Devon.

They are in Stepney in 1841. James dies 11 Sep 1849 at the Queen's Prison, Borough Road, Southwark. Borough Road, Southward is the address given on his probate from 1862. He was a doctor and I believe he was the doctor at the prison rather than a prisoner.

In his probate everything was left to his sister Sarah Julia SNELL of Plymouth. No mention of his wife.

Trying to find what happened to Susannah. Can't find her in 1851, and no marriages after 1849 look suitable. Not sure if she is the Susan BROOKING buried at St Pancras in 1854 as she was in the Workhouse. The age of 44 would fit though.

Australia / Benjamin BROOKING 1818-1853 Victoria
« on: Sunday 09 June 24 10:56 BST (UK)  »
Benjamin BROOKING was born in Yelverton, Devon in 1818. He married Charlotte Elizabeth BALMER at St Martin in the Fields, Westminster in 1849. He was a surgeon.

At some stage, probably not long after they were married, they came out to Australia.

Benjamin died at Collingwood on 25 April 1853, a couple of months after his youngest son James.

Can anyone assist on what the older son's name was, and what happened to the widow Charlotte. None of the children were born in England. Are they the Mrs Brooking and son who left Melbourne on the Madagascar in August 1853 for London. Her age fits.

Canada / Frank Albert LUCAS in Toronto 1898-??
« on: Sunday 05 May 24 11:46 BST (UK)  »
Frank Albert LUCAS was born 18 Aug 1898 in Toronto, son of Harry Richardson LUCAS and Sophie HARVEY, who married at Toronto 1890.

On 14 Oct 1931 at Toronto, Frank married Christina DAVIS, born 2 Mar 1899.

They had one known daughter that I have been able to find, Christina Mae LUCAS 1933-1990.

Can anyone find deaths for Frank and Christina. They both appear in electoral roll in 1965 so after that.

Were there any more children? If so they may still be alive.

Sussex / Sarah Ann LUCAS 1860-??
« on: Saturday 04 May 24 03:05 BST (UK)  »
Sarah's birth was registered Jun qtr 1860 at Rye, baptised at Rye 25 July 1860, first child of James LUCAS and Mary Ann JARRETT, who married at Rye on 11 Sep 1859.

Can find her with her parents and LUCAS grandparents in Rye in 1861, but then she disappears. No death between then and 1871 in Rye or anywhere around there that would fit. There is a death for a Sarah LUCAS in Rye in 1877, but that is her grandmother, born Sarah RICHARDSON in Brede in 1814.

She only appears on a couple of trees on Ancestry, unlike her two younger siblings Henry/Harry Richardson LUCAS and Elizabeth LUCAS. Harry migrated to Toronto in Canada and is fairly well documented. Elizabeth married Albert Edward TURNER in 1887 and they are fairly well documented.

Hoping some fresh eyes can find Sarah.

Devon / COMINS from Witheridge
« on: Monday 29 April 24 08:24 BST (UK)  »
William Willoughby COMINS was baptised in 1826 in Witheridge, son of William and Mary.

WWC's first wife was Mary Ann Comins STEVENS, a daughter of Thomas Howell STEVENS and Mary COMINS.

His second wife was Catherine Ann CLAPHAM, daughter of Henry Charles CLAPHAM and Ellen Ann SKELTON. They had one daughter.

His third wife was Margaretta Arscott STEVENS, a younger sister of his first wife.

Mary COMINS who married TH STEVENS was the daughter of Thomas COMINS and Elizabeth DEAN, who was also baptised at Witheridge.

Mary COMINS had a sister Elizabeth who married William Henry CLAPHAM at Witheridge on 1 Jan 1835. William Henry CLAPHAM was a brother of Henry Charles CLAPHAM.

William Henry CLAPHAM and William Willoughby COMINS were partners in a law firm in London. Most of the male members of the COMINS family seem to have been solicitors.

Can anyone tell me the relationship between WW COMINS and his first and third wife. Were they cousins. Am guessing they were related somehow because all the COMINS were from Witheridge.

There do not appear to be any trees online anywhere that covers all of them.

England / Thomas Green CLAPHAM marriage 1797-1799
« on: Tuesday 23 April 24 08:52 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find the marriage of Thomas Green CLAPHAM to Mary Magdalen ??, sometime just prior to 1799-1800.

Their first child was named Thomas Picton CLAPHAM born 1800, so her maiden name could have been PICTON. Thomas Green CLAPHAM's mother's maiden name was GREEN.

Second child born Westminster Sep 1801

Third child born Northaw, Hertfordshire May 1803.

She was buried at Northaw, Hertfordshire on 20 May 1803, probably from childbirth complications.

Hertfordshire / Elizabeth CLAPHAM 1817-? in Watford
« on: Wednesday 17 April 24 02:38 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find Elizabeth CLAPHAM after 1851 census. She was born Elizabeth COMINS and she married William Henry CLAPHAM at Witheridge, Devon on 1 Jan 1835. She was from Witheridge, baptised there 22 Oct 1817.

Can't find her or her husband in 1841. Should be in London or Watford, although could be in Yorkshire.

They were in Watford in 1851. His brother's wife was visiting them.

William Henry died in Watford on 22 Jul 1859. No sign of Elizabeth anywhere after that, unless she predeceased him.

No children that I have been able to find.
