1831/1841 Rochford
« on: Saturday 01 January 05 14:10 GMT (UK) »
Does anyone have a copy of either of the above?  I am looking for the family of a   William Baker    with a son William born in 1830  and a son Samuel born 1832 and lastly a third son John (Joseph?) born 1835
Any help would be terrific.

1841 CENSUS

HO107/337/17 folio 4, page 3 and folio 5, page 4
East Street, Rochford

Folio 4, page 3:
William BAKER - 40 - Sailor
Maria - -do- - 35

Folio 5, page 4:
Samuel BAKER - 10
John - -do- 6
Henry - do- 6 months

All born in county

I don't believe there was a national census prior to 1841, but I believe that there were censuses taken by local authorities.  Some taken in Essex are available on fiche (indexes only), Rochford 1811 is included, but I'm not sure where one would buy them.

Best Wishes

Hi Lindy

I continued searching through Rochford, looking for William's son William, but didn't find him.

Best Wishes
Linda

Good morning to you Linda,

Many thanks for looking that up for me,

The idea of there being an older brother William is 'cause on the 1871 census John 36 has William  living with him, shown as 'brother'  I did at first think that maybe William could be at sea, but that is silly as he is shown in 71 as being a Millwright,  thinking about that, I guess it is possible that he was living with a Miller, learning the trade.   The rest of the family all followed sea/water careers, generally bargemen.   In 1861 when Samuel marries, his father is shown as Master Bargeman, Samuel is shown as Bargeman,   John is later recorded as a Mariner, and on his children's marriage certs as 'Master Mariner'
I had no idea of a Henry, and can only presume that he did not make it into adulthood.

I have, this morning sent off for the 1851 & 1861 census floopy discs from the Essex FHS, so may be able to find out if Henry made it that far.
I am actually trying to find out where the father, William  40 in 1841 came from, the family story tells us of him running away from home, fed up with being 'waited on' (I wish!!) and with possibly having a scottish accent,   Notes from my G. Aunt who died about 1960,  Oh that she was still with us to tell me more.

Many many thanks for doing this for me

Happy New Year    to you and yours

Londy :) ;)

Hi Lindy

I was trawling 1861 census this morning for my own research, and found this entry, possibly John who was 6 in 1841?

1861 CENSUS

John J. BAKER - Head - Mar - 26 - Bargeman - b: Rochford
Elizabeth - Wife - Mar - 26 - b: Tollesbury
Fanny M. - 3 - b: Paglesham
Maria - 1 - b: Paglesham

Thats terrific Linda,   yes that is my lot, I only have them in 1871.  In 1871 Maria is nowhere to be seen, I am hoping that she is staying with her grandparents, if only I could find them!!
Maria is my G. Grandmother, so I know that she survived into adulthood,  In 1871 John had moved to Burnham on Crouch, whilst Samuel, John's middle brother (John being the youngest)  still lived in his fathers home in East Street Rochford.   Its all exciting stuff.
Many thanks :)
