Denbighshire / Re: Two possible baptisms for Catherine
« on: Monday 12 April 21 10:05 BST (UK)  »
Richard Edwards and Margaret Lloyd were married at Cerrigydrudion, 7 May 1753. Both single and both of that parish.

Baptisms at Cerrigydrudion for the children of Richard and Margaret:

16 Nov 1753, Margaret
30 Nov 1754, Elizabeth
10 Jul 1757, Edward
1 Nov 1759, Robert
(22 Jan 1764, Catherine)
6 Jan 1767, Margaret

The five year gap between Robert and Catherine's births might suggest Catherine was born a few years earlier than she was baptised?

No marriages between Thomas Edward/s and Gwen Jones in Denbighshire so I think the earlier baptism is unlikely. Did Richard Edwards leave a will? If he was the father of "your" Catherine, she may be named in a will under her married name.

The Common Room / Re: Receiving Poor Relief under her maiden name?

Itís her second entry. The first one (under her married name) an order was refused, then she received relief under her maiden name and then again under her married name.

The Common Room / Receiving Poor Relief under her maiden name?
« on: Monday 05 April 21 21:29 BST (UK)  »
I have found an ancestor of mine in the West Yorkshire poor law records. She applied for poor relief several times in the 1910s for herself and her children after her husband deserted her. By this time she was receiving a weekly maintenance payment from her husband. However, Iíve noticed she is mentioned in one entry under her maiden name. The address is correct but her age is out by a few years. Does this mean she was potentially trying to claim twice - once under her maiden name and once under her married name? Or could she simply have reverted back to her maiden name after their separation? She died and was buried under her married name!

Worcestershire / Re: Matthew and Sarah Robbins

You might already have done so but the Removal Order for Matthew and Sarah is at Worcestershire Archive.

Removal orders removed people back to their legal settlement. This was done if the family were reliant on poor relief and their current parish did not want to support them. So it suggests that Matthew and Sarah had fallen on hard times and were in need of poor relief.

England / Re: Sarah Williamson - missing person in 1800
« on: Friday 12 March 21 09:57 GMT (UK)  »
I decided to follow up the 1775 Manchester marriage. The couple were married by license, John was a hatter. I can't see any baptisms for any children John and Sarah Williams might have had but there are two Williamson baptisms at Heaton Norris for the sons of a John and Sarah Williamson...

30 June 1776, John son of John and Sarah Williamson
31 January 1779, Joseph son of John and Sarah Williamson

I suppose Williams could have been a clerical error? Or perhaps it isn't even the same couple! If it is my Sarah, then could we be looking at an elopement here? Hence the license and lack of contact between her and her father?

There is a baptism for Sarah, daughter of Robert and Jane, at Kegworth, 12 November 1740.

I think people must pick a random date out of thin air sometimes because I can't find the 1739 baptism either!  ;D

Looks like Robert and Ann used Swepstone to baptise their children:

John, 16 May 1744
Ann, 6 July 1747
Brian, 7 February 1753

Sarah Tebbett married Marston Hedley at Enderby, 31 March 1793.

Added: This Sarah was the niece of "missing" Sarah. Her father was Robert Tebbett Jr and his wife Ann Hardy.
