The Lighter Side / Re: WDYTYA New Series

Excellent thanks Chris. Richard Osman is the only one I donít know.  :)

Richard Osman is well known in the UK for co- hosting the Quiz show 'Pointless'. He has just ventured  into writing novels. His first one called 'The Thursday Murder Club' was a huge hit here in the UK

I have been looking at the family and found all the same records. What is a mystery though is....if it is 'our' Mary who married James Poole, why is she buried as Mary Galloway and not Mary Poole?

What a mystery!

Alternative baptism for William? :-\
10 June 1827, Penshaw
Parents George and Maria Hoggett
Abode Copperas House
Father Husbandman
From FreeReg


Peshaw is near Fatfield, which is William's residence on the marriage to Elizabeth Dawson. Says all three born Fatfield in 1851.
William born Washington in 1861
Goodness knows what it says in 1871.

After son George Dawson came daughter Maria
HOGGART, MARIA       
Mother's Maiden Surname: DAWSON 
GRO Reference: 1853  M Quarter in CHESTER LE STREET  Volume 10A  Page 270

I think this is the William who married Elizabeth Dawson.
William (aged 14) is on the 1841 census H0107/299/13/12/19

George Hoggart 30
Maria 30
William 14
Hannah 12
George 5
Margaret 5
Mary 2

Children all born in the county but George and Maria not born in county

A possible birth for Mary.

HOGGET, MARY       DOCKERY

This Mary also seems to have a twin sister called Ann

I don't think it was the case that his family couldn't look after him, but simply - for some reason - changed their name to from Beaudin to WARD.  Ward was Fred's grandmother's maiden name. 

I just wonder why Fred James Ward gives his religion as Presbyterian on his marriage when all the family seem to be Roman Catholic

You have done some amazing research there Ladyhawk. I have been following it carefully and it does make sense. I see a lot of the females in the same families have 'Marie' or 'Mary' as their first name so it would make sense that to avoid confusion they use their middle name.

Was Amelia definitely Lena's daughter or could she be Frederick Wards daughter?
