Leicestershire / Re: What happened to Ann Burton (nee Jaycock)
« on: Wednesday 06 January 21 13:58 GMT (UK)  »
Hi again.

The informant on Williams death certificate is Joseph Burton.  It is possible that Ann died before him although she appears on the 1871 census.

In terms of their children, she does not appear with sons Joseph, Edward, Thomas, and James.  Canít be sure about Charlesí whereabouts after 1871.

Thanks for looking and responding.

Hi

Thanks for the response. 

Unfortunately, Hannah Burton who died in 1904 is not Ann, as she was the wife of Williamís brother Joseph.

Seems so strange that she should be so hard to find when records were becoming so readily available.

Hi Carole

I think Arthur was actually their grandson - son of Thomas who was living next door.  His name features in both households and he is also shown as born in Sheffield in both (Thomasí wife was from Yorkshire).

Ann is not buried with her husband - he is buried with unrelated people in Welford Road. 

Thanks again for your interest.

Leicestershire / What happened to Ann Burton (nee Jaycock)
« on: Tuesday 05 January 21 09:27 GMT (UK)  »
Hi

Can anybody see what happened to Ann Burton after her husband William died in Leicester in 1874?

They are on the 1871 census together with children Edward, William, James and Charles, with son Thomas living next door, living in Burleys Lane St Margarets in Leicester although I cannot ascertain what happened to her after 1874. 

Ann Jaycock was born in Hinckley in 1825, where she lived with her husband William Burton before moving to Leicester.

I cannot find a suitable death or re-marriage record and would be grateful of any assistance.

Regards

Thanks for trying to assist and for responding.

Yes I have Charlotte as a separate person- married to William Letts and living in Cold Ashby, where she dies in 1870.

This has been a bit of a brick wall for me - the family appear to have been non-conformists to add further to the challenges.

Hi

Still struggling with this one.  I see that the marriage for Samuel Scott and Mary Garnett on 10 Feb 1804 in East Farndon was by licence, Samuel being a widower.  Are there any licence details online or available for review to understand more about the circumstances of this marriage?

Thanks

Northamptonshire Lookup Requests / Lois Scott - East Farndon
« on: Saturday 14 November 20 23:02 GMT (UK)  »
Hi

I am trying to research a Lois Scott.  She was born in East Farndon, Northamptonshire in 1806 according to Census and married William Coltman in Leicester in 1832, before living in Wigston Magna.  Their children were Henry, Alfred, Ann, William, Edwin, Lois and Mary Jane.

I cannot find a baptism for Lois although in 1861 in Wigston Magna she has a niece and nephew living with her - Samuel Watson and Elizabeth Mary Watson.  Earlier census's in Walcote (1841) and Leicester St Martin (1851) reveal that their mother is Elizabeth Scott, born abt 1813,  who married Thomas Watson.  Sadly Elizabeth Watson (nee Scott) died in Leicester in 1853, but is buried in East Farndon.  This therefore suggests that Lois has a sister called Elizabeth Scott.  Elizabeth lists her birth place as what looks like Tissington in Derbyshire in 1851.

Now i have found a baptism for an Elizabeth Scott (listed as aged 13) in East Farndon in 1826, together with sisters Jane and Charlotte to parents Samuel and Mary Scott (no Lois though).  This age does tie in with Elizabeth's census age and death records.  Looking at that Elizabeth's potential parents, Samuel and Mary, there is a marriage between a Samuel and Mary Walden in 1794 in Clipston and then a further marriage between a Samuel Scott (widower) and a Mary Garnett in 1804 in East Farndon - these look to be the same Samuel as the signatures when looking at images online look the same.  The latter pair have numerous children, including a Deborah in 1809, and an Elizabeth in 1815, with listings including the mothers maiden name of Garnett in Market Harborough non-conformist registers. 

When viewing Deborah Scott in 1841, there is an Elizabeth Scott living with her (her sister?).  As i have Elizabeth Scott married to a Thomas Watson in Wigston Magna in 1835 and living in Walcote, Leics in 1841 this would suggest that these are different Elizabeth's and so the potential parents for my Elizabeth (sister of Lois) are not Samuel and Mary Scott (nee Garnett).

Looking at Elizabeth Scott's sisters on the 1826 baptism, Jane and Charlotte - i note that a Jane Scott had an illigitimate child, Alfred Scott, in 1833 in East Farndon - which was also one of Lois's childrens' names.  There is a Jane Scott in the workhouse aged 40 in 1851 (so born abt 1811), which could be that Jane although i cannot see what happened to her after that.  Charlotte Scott, appears to be the one who married William Letts in Clipston and from Census's in Cold Ashby that would put her born abt 1817.

So - can anyone help me work out who Lois's parents are?

Any thoughts or help appreciated.

Regards

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Where is this place?

Thanks for the responses.

I just wish i could find some baptisms to tie in.

I had found three baptisms in 1826 in East Farndon - one for Elizabeth, stated as aged 13 (which ties nicely), as well as Charlotte and Jane (no ages given) to a Samuel and Mary.  Looking at Charlotte's marriage in 1837 to William Letts and subsequent census's it suggests she might have been born about 1817, with father Samuel shown as a Shoemaker on the marriage entry. 

There is also an earlier baptism for Jane in 1796 in East Farndon to Samuel and Mary - but no Lois.

I wondered whether the family had spent some time in Derbyshire after Jane was born, and that Elizabeth and Lois might not have been baptised, hence Elizabeth's late baptism in 1826.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Where is this place?

Hi

Can anyone please decipher where Elizabeth Watson (formerly Elizabeth Scott) was born (line 4).  I can see it's Derbyshire but what is the place?  I am trying to establish her parents and to find a baptism - circa 1813. 

Elizabeth Watson is in Misterton, Leicestershire in 1841 with her husband and family (not born in County) although sadly dies in Leicester in 1853 so cannot be traced further.  Two of her children are with her sister Lois Coltman in Wigston Leicestershire in 1861.  Again i cannot spot a baptism for Lois (nee Scott) around 1806 although she consistently states that she is born in East Farndon, Northamptonshire.

Any help appreciated to help me get past this brick wall.

Regards

TB
