Thanks I hope so too!

There is an added complication, in that he was imprisoned in 1853 (we was framed  :-[ !!) and so I don't know whether he died in prison.  His wife was "offered the workhouse" soon after and neither appears on censuses after this date.  The family made a new start in south Wales, as did so many unemployed from Gloucestershire.

You never know, someone may have a clue hot to go about tracing convicts!?

Hi Phoebe

Had a quick look and no sign of them.  Do you believe them to be in Monmouthshire in 1871?  The records are not yet complete online is my understanding - I have a lot of folk "lost" in Monmouthshire at this time.

Do you have a George Duggan, daughter Eleanor more recently in your tree?

Yes, that's her I'm sure.  I wonder why she would have travelled so far from home?  People certainly seemed to get about more than I thought.  I know the railway reached Amersham about this time, so perhaps she just had itchy feet.

I had wondered if Charles' place of birth had been mistranscribed as London Holborn instead of London Colney, which is near St Albans I believe.  It would be neater.

At least we can forget theories that they eloped, now!

Are you using CD info, or have I been missing the blindingly obvious all this time?  (Had seen the East Woodhay record, but it was one of several Henry Carters who were gardeners are you no doubt know.)

This info is of great interest to a living relative, so many thanks again.

Thanks Casalguidi

I certainly think this would explain Charles' presence in Amersham.  I still wonder why Alice was there, though, particularly as census info suggests she was not quite 21!  I wonder if Henry's employer also had property in Herefordshire?!

Will try to trace Charles' birth on this assumption in ST Alban's.

Funnily enough, his daughter Edith's occupation before her marriage was - in a conservative club!!  Something in the genes?

Many thanks, Arranroots :)

Buckinghamshire / Carter/ Latham in Amersham

Charles Carter aged 22 married Alice Jane Latham aged 21 on 11th Feb 1893.  They both gave their residence as Amersham, although Alice was from Hereford and Charles was born in Holborn, London.

They later settled in Herefordshire, but their daughter Edith was born in Watford in November 1895. 

Charles was a carpenter and his father Henry Carter was a gardener.  A family story says that Charles was adopted by a wealthy family, who took him to Herefordshire.

What were they doing in Amersham??

Any help greatly appreciated

Trying to find info on WEBB family, especially Benjamin WEBB, born North Nibley, circa 1801.  He married Hannah MALPUS (more usually spelt MALPASS) and was my 3x gt grandfather.  The family were non-conformist and I haven't found his birth or death.  He was last known of in 1851 census at Sinwell, near Wotton. 

Any help wold be greatly appreciated.  (Thank you!)

Hello JMann

I have an Eliza BAUGH born circa 1841, Marden HEF who marries a Thomas LATHAM, born c 1837 Minchinhampton, GLS.  Have just started on this line and wondered whether they link with yours?

More in hope than expectation!
