He married Ruth Baker at Blean in the March Qtr of 1868.

Any information would be greatly appreciated please. TIA.

Best wishes

Hi CatOne,

Many thanks for the posts.

I suspect Thomas born 1851 is related to the families you have listed but infortunately I cannot prove it at the moment.

Is there any way of accessing Thomas's marriage record please to see who his father is?

He could fit in between Walter born 1848 and Elizabeth born 1852 but I don't understand why he does not appear on the censuses.

Best wishes

Hi bearkat,

Thanks for that.

I tried FreeBMD but could not find a birth record for him in 1851 either.

I have him here in the 1881 Census:-
http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/Census/household_record.asp?HOUSEHOLD_CODE=1881BR_1047178&HOUSEHOLD_SUB=1&frompage=99

Assuming he is a romany/gypsy/traveller he may be at the same location in the previous census.

The only other one I could find was Thomas Rositer born March Qtr 1852 in the St George Of The East Registration district.

Just wondering if the Thomas born Charlton, Kent in 1846 earlier in the thread and this Thomas born 1851 are one and the same.

Best wishes

In 1881, on the same page as your Thomas, theres also a James Rossiter, born Milton Kent, thats why I thought maybe this could be the same family. Traveller families seem to have varying names/ages from census to census  :-\ Will check out other censuses...

added: theres also a Jacob Rossiter aged 28 over the page, born M....stone, who would fit with grandson Jacob in 1861 (age out a few years)

Hi CatOne,

Thanks for that.

Maybe another census will produce a different birthplace or birth year for Thomas. This has happened in other Rossiter branches so it is a possibility.

Kent Rossiters have turned up in Milton, Sittingbourne, West Malling, Elham, Charlton, Dover, Canterbury, Ashford, West Ashford to name but a few!! LOL!!

Best wishes

Also, in 1881, there is a William Harris and wife Elizabeth in the next caravan. I think this could be his sister from the 1861 census born Sheerness -
