London and Middlesex / Re: Gareys in London from 1700
« on: Thursday 17 February 11 10:02 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if I can come back to a question I asked a few weeks ago (1 December 2010). I was trying to establish any relationship to me of Edward Bryant Garey, a disgraced solicitor who was deported to Tasmania and died there in 1852. I have his parents as George Garey and Susanna.
Now, I have recently been looking at the Gareys related to the Blackett family, and have found George Garey who married Susanna Annesley in 1791 in Cripplegate whose sone Thomas Garey, born 1803 in Cripplegate, gave rise to a number of descendants whom I have been able to trace (Joseph, John, Susanna and Thomas, born between 1797 and 1803).
The question is, how can I check whether Edward Bryant (born 1796) was also a son of George Garey and Susanna Annesley?
Thanks

Thanks Shaun. That was quick. Do you think it is likely to be the same as Richard James's?

Can anyone help with the following?

In the London census of 1871 I find this family at 1 Plough Lane, Homerton:

Richard Garey age 42, blind maker, wife Eliza age 39
Children, born Shoreditch:
Edward, 21, blind maker
Richard, 19, sawyer
Frederick, 16, errand boy
Eliza, 14, book folder
Alice, 12
Laura, 9
Arthur, 6

My question is whether this is the same family as that of my ancestors, of which I only have the following:

Richard James Garey, bapt 2-1-1825 St Botolph Bishopsgate
married Eliza Webster 18-2-1849 at St Mary Haggerston
The only child I have is:
Edward Lovell Garey, b 3-5-1849 Hackney, bapt 27-5-1849, St Leonard Shoreditch, d 1887 Shoreditch
He was a venetian blind maker, so that agress with the first family's Edward, as does his age. The main discrepancy would seem to be the fathers' ages (about 1829, compared with Richard James, bapt 1825).
Many thanks

Shaun: in my records I have Napoleon Edward Byron (name dropping a bit? A real solicitor's son!) who married a German lady, Anna Friedericke Nathalie. He was born in Clerkenwell in 1826 and died in Bromley in 1914. They had daughters Natalie Elizabeth (b Hoddesdon 1857, m 1884 in Croydon) and Adele Letitia (b 1859 in Italy and m Croydon 1881). They seem to be globe trotters. Now I can link Napoleon to EBG's family. Thanks

Thanks Nigel and Shaun. When I recorded the Abney Park burials a few year ago I noted that EBG's wife might well be Harriet Robinson, so that seems to be clearer now. I also had a list of our solicitor friend's children, but I can now update that. It certainly seems that we are dealing with two separate EBGs, for which many thanks.
I cannot link this family to my own as yet, but am working on it!

I have been trying to put your advice into effect and have a question about one (or two?) mid-nineteenth century London Gareys. I refer to Edward Bryant Garey. I hope I am not offending forum etiquette by referring to the following.

He was a solicitor, tried and  found guilty at the Old Bailey in 1846 and transported for 15 years. Age 51, so born about 1795. There is a headstone in Hobart, Tasmania, of Edward Bryant Garey, who died 1852, age 65. Therefore born about 1787.

In Abney Park Cemetery in London, there is a burial of Edward Bryant Garey dated 11/4/1859.

I have a wife for Edward Bryant, Elizabeth Dean, married in London 1819, and also in St Catherine's Marriage Index another marriage of EBG in 1849, Shoreditch.

I found the marriage of his daughter Sarah Elizabeth in Marylebone in 1844, in which her father is mentioned as a solicitor.

So are we dealing with two Edward Bryant Gareys, one died and buried in London, and another, the solicitor buried in Hobart, or is it possible that it is the same, who married twice, who died in prison, was buried in Hobart, then repatriated some years later and buried in London in the family cemetery?

I have not found the parents of Edward Bryant.

Thanks for any advice.

Hope you don't mind, friends, but it seems logical to continue on the England - London thread. Maybe see you there!
