Bateman & Averis
« on: Sunday 13 April 08 20:03 BST (UK) »
Wasn't sure where to post this, so pls forgive if its in the wrong place.

I have a Joseph BATEMAN, born Shipton Ollife 1794.  He has 7 children 1822-1840 born in sevenhampton.  I got the birth certificate for the 1840 child, Emma, and it shows her mothers maiden name to be Margaret AVERIS.

Now, this is where I think it gets messy.  Margaret on the 1841 census is ticked as coming from Gloucestershire.  In 1851, she states she comes from Eldersfield, Gloucestershire.  But Eldersfield is in Worcestershire as far as I can see.  She dies in 1860, and birth year is approx 1801.

1851 Census Piece 1969 Folio 336 Page 24 (emma isn't on this, she is living with her sister).

I can't find a marriage for Joseph & margaret, nor can I find baptism for margaret, in fact, there are barely any AVERIS anywhere.

I have seen the online registers for Eldersfield, and tho I'm not sure how complete they are, there doesn't appear to be any averis at all.

Can anyone find the marriage/baptism, or offer any further clues?

Many thanks

thats brilliant, thank you so much.  I'll get a copy of that, can I ask where you found it?

And I hope that means she lied about her age.....

ahh, I found it, I don't know how I missed it the first time.....

The daughters birth certificate definately says Averis, so until I get the register copy, I'm going to presume everis is a mistranscribe, If anyone can see the baptism, it would be much appreciated.
