The Common Room / Re: Is the name Fanny short for another name

I have a lady in my family tree named Tryphena.

Her baptism record record has her as Tryphena and on her childrens' birth certificates she is Tryphena.

But in all the census records she is Fanny and she is even Fanny on her second marriage certificate and her death certificate.

I had the same problem on Friday and Saturday. No idea why.
I am using Ancestry.com, now and that seems ok.
I hope they're working on it, I prefer .co.uk

The Common Room / Re: Mary Ann Coomber -Where did she go after 1871

Thanks for your interest.

Her father was definitely William Coomber and in various census he is a 'cab driver' and a 'carriageman'
His son charles was also a 'cab driver'

Hello Rosie

The Mary Ann Coomber who married John James Hoare in 1876 was born in Basingstoke, Hampshire.

The Mary Ann Coomber who died in 1880 in Islington was married to Charles Coomber, a carpenter.

These were the best 'possibles' but the facts didn't stack up.

Hello Brentor Boy. thanks for coming back to me.

Mary Ann was born in Holborn, London and she lived in London all her life.
In the 1871 census she was living at 12, Great Ormond Yard Finsbury, London.

The Common Room / Mary Ann Coomber -Where did she go after 1871
« on: Sunday 15 March 20 15:03 GMT (UK)  »
Please can anyone help me find Mary Ann Coomber after the 1871 census.

Prior to that, she was quite easy to trace.

I found her birth on 7 Jan 1847 and baptism on 31 Jan 1847. Her parents were William Coomber (cab driver) and Sarah Pottinger.
Sarah died 26 Nov 1849

In the 1851 and 1861 census Mary Ann is with her aunt Elizabeth. (motherís sister)
Elizabeth died on 15 Nov 1867.
In her will, Elizabeth left almost everything to Mary Ann Coomber

In the 1871 census Mary Ann is back with her father, but in 1872 her father, William died.
I got a copy of Williamís death certificate, to see if Mary Ann registered the death. No luck there.

I cannot find a marriage or death for Mary Ann. Iíve found a few Ďpossiblesí but when I traced them, backwards or forwards, they were not her.

Please does anyone have any ideas where to look next?

Hello everyone

I've only just logged back on and read all your interesting replies.

It seems very odd to me that both the death certificates for an Elizabeth Maria De Redder state their father as William de Redder and he is a seaman. And the ages of both girls tie up with birth records.

I'll give you the information I have on the family, which all seemed to make sense to me except for the second Elizabeth Maria dying.

Mary Murrel Baines married Frederick de Redder on 20 Jan 1812 in Blakeney Norfolk
They had two children Maria 1812-1893 and William 1814-1881.

Maria married Robert Eaglen in 1844. He was a Methodist minister, They had five children.

William married Elizabeth Herron in 1837 in South Shields and they had sixteen children.

Frederick de Redder died/disappeared after Williamís birth.
I think I may have found him returning to Holland and marrying a local girl in 1816 and having a son. This Frederickís mother was named Maria. It looks very promising but is still very much a work in progress.

Mary Murrell Baines/de Redder married Anthony Bales Drew in Castleacre, Norfolk on 16 Oct 1830. He is single and she is a widow. One of the witnesses was her eighteen year old daughter, Maria de Redder.

Mary and Anthony had two children Mary Drew 1831-1897 and Jabez James Drew 1833-1852.
Jabez died on 7 Oct 1852 of Typhus fever, certified.

Thank you to the person who wrote about the monument inscription in Castleacre, I had no idea about that.

Iím sure the person who registered the death of the second Elizabeth Maria de Redder was her paternal grandmother.
The death certificate states the death was registered by Mary Drew, present at death.
Both the death certificates are for Elizabeth Maria de Redder.

Thank you all for your input

Mary Drew did live in Norfolk. William de Redder was born there.

The 1855 death certificate states date of death 2 Jan 1855 and registered 3 Jan 1855

Thank you so much for coming back to me.

I had found Elizabeth in the 1861 census, which I find even more confusing.
