Lancashire / Re: Joseph Stewart - tracing origin
« on: Friday 22 March 19 15:32 GMT (UK)  »
Have you got Joseph and Ann (and the 9 children) on the censuses? Assuming Joseph lived to at least 1841.  If so, where and when does he say he was born?

As per the other response, it would seem he was born on the 2nd of May 1795 in Liverpool...

The Merchant Navy recors you have listed staes that Joseph was born 2 May 1795 in Liverpool. He first went to sea as an apprentice in 1810 and at some point spent 6 years in the Royal Navy. When not employed he resided in Liverpool. He was 5ft 53/4 ins tall, with a ruddy omplexion, grey hair and Dark brown eyes. What it doesn't give is the name of wife or next of kin.


Oh my word he was short - I'm 5' 6" :D :D
Typical - I can virtually find out what he had for breakfast, but not who his parents were ???

Lancashire / Joseph Stewart - tracing origin
« on: Friday 22 March 19 14:18 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to trace Joseph Stewart - he married Anne Stringer (I requested some assistance with the Stringer line as well and got some much needed assistance).
I am now trying to find out where my line of Stewarts comes from.
I know that Joseph Stewart who married Anne Stringer (Liverpool 1820) and had 9 children in total, including my great-great grandfather, William Stringer Stewart. William Stringer Stewart spent many years in India and Sri Lanka and I am pretty clued up on the Stewarts from his generation forward.
For years now I was led to believe by my grandfather's notes that Joseph was descended of the Balquhidder Stewarts, but I discovered a couple of days ago that the only Joseph in that line died, unmarried in his twenties. So, back to the drawing board. I do know that Joseph Stewart was a mariner, and I have found one listed - attachment below. His birth date of 1795 seems to fit with the marriage date of 1820. It also says he was born in Lancashire, and the majority of records for his family seem to be based in Lancashire.
Is anyone able to assist me in tracing his parents/grandparents etc.?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Fantastic, thanks for the additional info - I was just looking that up. I am more convinced that the info I had from my grandfather was an error...

Looking at the info on Ann and William Stringer being born 8 years apart and both listed as having the parents Bancroft and Mary, I now find myself wondering if the information my grandfather had was incorrect - perhaps the William and Anne he had listed as Anne Stringer's parents were actually the siblings listed incorrectly...
I will look into this a bit more. It would make sense that there is an error in the family records as his research was done before computers were readily available with all the search capabilities.
It also makes sense having the Bancroft connection....always wondered where the name came from.

Ok...I'm going to print out all the replies and wend my way through them. Thank you to prawncocktail (love the name) and Mckha489. ;)
I have the records of William Stringer Stewart's siblings - there were 9 children all together - two Ann's and an Anne included (I am assuming one Ann died young so they just reused the name).
I will see what I can get from the Stringer findings, as this is where I have been coming unstuck!
It is very frustrating researching branches of my tree as many of the members seem to have been merchants and mariners and were constantly on the move, which makes tracking them near to impossible ???

I have in family records, a William Stringer who married an Anne (surname unknown) in Liverpool in about 1799.
They had a daughter named Ann(e) Stringer, who married a Joseph Stewart in Liverpool. They, in turn, had a son named William Stringer Stewart (1826-1904). He married Sarah Maria Mann (1859-1911). They lived in India and Sri Lanka, and I have plenty of information on the children as they are my great-grand relatives.
I have no definite dates for William Stringer, his wife, or their daughter, Anne, other than some assistance I received a few years back that Ann(e) Stringer, the daughter, may have been born in 1800 in Liverpool, Lancashire. It is also mentioned that she may have been christened Nancy...???

I have managed to find reference to a Joseph Stewart marrying an Ann Stringer of the 19th of November, 1820 at St. Johns Old Haymarket, Liverpool, Lancashire.
I am struggling to work back from there.

If anyone can assist with any info on Ann(e) Stinger (Spelling varies on all the Ann/Annes), William Stringer and his wife, the unknown Ann(e), it would be greatly appreciated, as I do not currently have access to full documentation.
