Thank you for doing that - now I know! No doubt there's somewhere on site that explains how to post a link.

And thanks, BumbleB for the London info - now I have a much better understanding of the area at that time.

Wolfenden's first wife, Mary Kettle, died 8 Feb 1812 listed as Hackney Rd. They had been married Marylebone in 1805 and had 4 children - 1807 Charlotte Mary - St Marylebone; 1808 Anna Beaumont in Ireland; 1810 Wolfenden - St Leonard, Shoreditch; and Edward 1812 - 4 days before his mother's death. He was baptised in 1812 March St Mary Lewisham.

In 1816 a child named Mary born Clerkenwell St James - mother listed as Sarah.
A further 6 children born 1818 William,1820 Robert,1825 Frances, 1827 Frederick, 1829 Charles and 1832 Griffith Richard Kenny, all Baptisms list mother as Mary. - all Clerkenwell St James.

I believe the reference to Sarah is a transcription type error. Either way, I can find no reference to a 2nd/3rd marriage for Wolfenden Kenny - have tried posting on the Ireland board in case he returned to Ireland to marry - but so far no luck there either.

Any help greatly appreciatied. By the way where is/was Clerkenwell St James in London?!
Many thanks

Again, thanks but no further forward.
FYI, after Wolfenden's first wife, Mary Kettle, died in 1812, he had a further 7 children between 1816 and 1832! All born England. My reason for posting on this board was in the hope that Wolfenden had returned to Ireland to remarry, as I can find no UK listings of potential other marriages.
I will now try posting this on a London board?

But much appreciate all help given so far.

Thanks everyone. Must admit, since that original posting, have discovered much about Wolfenden Kenny and his family - ancestors and descendants.  Have also acquired his Peninsular War medal, thanks to advice - from memory - from someone on Rootschat.

Just nothing on a 2nd or even 3rd marriage! The mention of Samuel Deverell as Primary Beneficiary/Executor - he was WK's grandson - son of Anna Beaumont (nee Kenny) Deverell.

Such a shame that registrations of birth in the 1800s didn't give mother's maiden name!
Oh well, back to the drawing board for me!
Many thanks

Thankyou - just had quick look, but cant see anything in the index covering 1812-1816.
Am I being a little shortsighted?!
Thankyou for very quick response

These boards have changed since I last posted so hope this is in the right place.
The old chestnut, Wolfenden Kenny (B 18.11.1780 Mountmellick, Rosenallis, Queens) initially married Mary Kettle in 1805 in London.  First child born Ireland, 2nd and future children born London. Mary died in 1812 London, assume following childbirth, as their 3rd child, Edward Kenny was born 4 days prior Mary's death.
The next child of Wolfenden was born in 1816 with mother named as Mary. There seems no UK trace of Wolfenden's 2nd marriage so is it possible he returned to Ireland to family and re-married there sometime between 1812-1816?

These boards have always been of such great help in the past, Im sure something may come to light.
Apologies if posted in wrong place/way

Essex Lookup Requests / Thomas Cooper c 1799 Essex
« on: Sunday 04 September 11 15:16 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I have a Thomas Cooper born c1799 Essex, marrying Sarah? in Essex but cant find when or wife's maiden name.

They had 7 children, (eldest Mary, b Essex 1823) one of whom, Susan (b 1826 Essex) marries David Brett in Gt Henny Essex in 1854. 

Looking at the 1861 census for Thomas & Sarah, her dob given as 1801 Gt Henny.  Also in 1861 Thomas' mother, Sarah Cooper born c 1780 Twinstead Essex, living with them.

Can anyone throw any light on the Sarah that Thomas married or in fact Thomas' father?

Many thanks

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Re: Shakespeare Mearns/Lincoln Prison
« on: Thursday 01 September 11 20:25 BST (UK)  »
Thanks everybody. Some of Shakespeare's siblings had weird and wonderful names. Also as they were born in different parts of the UK, want to believe that father, William Mearns, was "on the stage" !!

Will look at the death you found for S. Mearno.

Any ideas though on prison records back in '41?

Many thanks

Lincolnshire Lookup Requests / Shakespeare Mearns/Lincoln Prison
« on: Thursday 01 September 11 14:17 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I have a Shakespeare Mearns (born c 1826 Stratford on Avon!) in the '41 census as a prisoner - aged 15 - down as tailor - St Swithin, Lincoln.
By 1846 he's marrying (Maria Cropper) and re-marries (as a widower) in 1851 (Harriet Moyses) - although he appears with his mother in the 51 census.

I doubt there are records as to why he may have been in prison?

And as yet, cant find any trace of his death.

Any help much appreciated.
