Hi ;D

Thank you for trying for me. He was sent to Salisbury to the Asylum which was common place in those days from Wandsworth Workhouse infirmary. (paupers used this) He had been out of work since the December before (has this in the admission to the hospital)

I can trace Fanny back to her family the Terreys and think I found her on the 1881 census as a servant (can not put my finger on exactly where without searching) She married him five years later.

Might subscribe to find my past too..!!!

Hes not at Acorn Place on the 1901 sadly  :(

Hi Rian

Sorry.........this is the wrong Fanny..her father was Samuel Terrey and her mother was Emma Avis. Funny thing is I can not find any of them on the 1871 census and presumed they did not take part which surprised me because he was an ex police officer. I think I found her on the 1881 as a Servant to the Fentons..but im not 100% sure its her.

I do wonder if he met through her sister Emma at 1a Acorn Road, perhaps he was a lodger? i wondered if Henry worked with him (he was a hotel porter) but Henry was a seal dresser. 

Dont you just wish you could go back in time !!!

Hi Ragna
I can't find him in 1871, but they don't have all counties for this year in FindMyPast. I thought i had Samuel and Emma but it turned out to be a policeman called Yeo (confused as a ditto from the line above). Just another mistranscribed missing person — I wonder who is going daft looking for HIM!
Sydney wasn't a lodger at Acorn place in 1891 — I looked.
Cheers, Rian.

Just to set this out so we know what we're looking for.

Fanny and the children in 1901 are at 27 Surrey Lane, Battersea.

RG13/ 449 folio 109 page 3

Fanny McLaven wife marr 35 b Peckham
Howard son 4 b Battersea
Douglas son 1 b "     "

Now we can all try and find her in 1891  ;)

I have them in 1871 !!!

Mistranscribed as PERRY- and I must say it does look like that.

11 Attwell Road Peckham. RG10/732 folio 14 page 28

Samuel head 44 superannuated Police Constable b Southwark
Emma wife 40 b Tendring Essex
Eliza dau 8 b Peckham
Fanny dau 5 b Peckham
Lizzie dau 2 b Peckham

If only the McLavens were this easy!!! I'm leaning towards them being Scottish I must say.Esp after discovering that he named his son Douglas- very Scottish!

Regards

Carol

Thank you so much Carol

I can not believe after all this time Ive found them on the 1871!!!!!! Would never have thought of Perry. How did you actually find it ?


I think I found Fanny as a servant on the 1881
