The Common Room / Re: John Kerby 1841 Census - additional info?

Hi
Witnesses at that 1808 marriage were Isaac Rolfe, Martha Kerby.

John had a sister Martha who would have been about 16 in 1808 - would that have been old enough to be a witness?

Thanks very much.  I had thought our family were reasonably well off when they were in Barclay Court but I`m starting to doubt that!

Is there another John in the family who could have been in Berkeley Court? Otherwise the John in question may have been married. But without his wife and daughter in 1841!
 
Back to that 1840 Pigot Directory
Milliners
Kerby Eliza Sarah, 109 Upper Seymour st

I`m not aware of another John there at the right time - I`ll follow your lead.  Thankyou

Thanks again - our family connection is actually through one of John`s brothers (Benjamin)  but there seem to be a lot of links to Barclay Court so I`m just trying to work out which family member was doing what there!
Their father Isaac worked as a watchmaker there and one of his brother`s (another Isaac) had lived and  worked in Gloucestershire as a watchmaker but returned to Barclay Court in old age

I`m hoping someone might be able to tell me something about Berkley Court which was in Clerkenwell St James.
Several of our family were watchmakers living and, I think, working  there at the end of the 18th Century. I thought it sounded like quite a grand address but I`ve found a couple of photos of it online which were taken at the end of the 19th century and it looks like it was a slum by then!
I`d love to know more about it`s history. 

Many thanks

Thanks - that was quick!!

That would make sense - all of the family were watchmakers.
I haven`t been able to find out if he married - hopefully his death certificate might give me a clue

I don`t have Ancestry or Findmypast at the moment but by using Familysearch I have found John Kerby in 1841 but there is no indication of his occupation or marital state.  I wondered if the original record shows anything more.  Also he doesn`t appear to be living with any relatives and I`m not sure if he is alone or sharing with others.
He is in Berkley Court,  Clerkenwell St James. Middlesex
  Book number 5:  Line number 24:  Page number 36
Piece/Folio 661/42     Reg No.  HO107

I already know when he was born and who his parents were and have just sent for his death certificate - he died just before the Census in 1851

Many thanks
