1851 look up Matthews
« on: Wednesday 30 July 08 17:52 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help with a 1851 look up as I went with Find My Past and the 1851 isn't on there !
Searching for ANN ( maybe MARY ANN) MATTHEWS born in WICKHAM HAMPSHIRE.
In 1861 she is 14 Bn 1847 and a nurse maid in Richmond.
In 1871 she is married to William Hedges and is 28 so Bn 1843.

So she could be Ann or Mary or Mary Ann Matthews Bn in 1843 or 1847 but I'm pretty sure about the birth place of Wickham ! ???

Sorry if there are too many variables but she lies on the census throughout her life !

Thanks.

Hi

The 1851 does have an entry for a Mary Ann Matthews but b 1849 Brading parents Josiah & Mary

There is also a Mary A b Ashe living with Matthews grandparents but no parents in household

I think you need a copy of her marriage cert to establish her fathers name

Freebmd marriages for March qtr 1871

HEDGES  William     Farnham  2a 92   
Matthews  Ann     Farnham  2a 92   

Do you have the 1871 reference plus county as I can't find any entry with the profile above and the only 1881 Hedges I can find with a husband William was Elizabeth b Hampshire

Where did you get the info re: other christian name

Knew father was called George so there can't be that many others with all the right info so pretty sure that is her.
Thanks again all.
