53rd foot returned to England in 1823 after several years in India. Not sure if this is significant. I now recall that Thomas E Lodington was on half pay at that time and not on active service with 53rd.

PETITIONS of INSOLVENT DEBTORS, to
be heard at Justice Hall, in the Old Bailey, London,
on Friday the 30th of November 1821,
at Nine o'Clock in the Forenoon.

Lodington, Thomas Edward, formerly of No. 5, Mecklenburg-
Square, afterwards of No. 31, Shouldham-Street, Bryanston-
Square, since of North-Place-Cottage, Finchley-Common,
Ensign on half-pay 53d Regiment of Foot.



This was two years previously.

Is it just criminal cases listed on the Old Bailey site?

Beverley Purton Edwards Lodington alias Edwards was not born until 1825/26 in Harwich, Essex.  I always presumed maybe he was returning from Europe with his wife and were in Harwich at the time.

But perhaps they actually did live there for a time.

Perhaps Candler Lodington was christened in New York?

This would put Candler Lodington's birth as 8 June 1823, if this record correctly records him as 16 days old.  This would also fit with him being born on the Atlantic Sea (on the "London").

Do you have a departure date for the London?

Mary Ellen Lodington would have known she was pregnant, of course, so perhaps they were planning on emigrating?

No real update to this, I am afraid.  I have been very busy and have not had much time to do much family history/genealogy of any kind recently.

I do want to say though, that Eleanor Sarah Fortye Millis seems to be a descendant of Edward III., King of England, via Millis/Maunsell/Fairfax/Gascoigne/Percy/Mortimer/Plantagenet.

The Fairfaxes could also be linked into the Fairfax family who married into the Lodingtons.  I shall most definitely check on this.

I thought he maybe a son of William Lodington and Harriett Dyer but his birth year of circa 1839 is 7 years before William Lodington and Harriet married.  So perhaps he was instead born with the surname Dyer (thus was illegitimate).

I have some questions about the two Lodington boys George Edward Dyer Lodington and Edward Horace Dyer Lodington who we thought were sons of William Lodington and Harriet Dyer.

I have the 1841 census for William and Harriet who married in 1846. The census for Lambeth Park rad shows the family of William Lodington 35 and Sarah 35
 with children William 15
                      Stewart 15
                      John 15
                      Sarah 14
                      Ernest 9
                      Louisa 8 (?)
                      Lydia 2
                      Camilla 6mths
                      Eliza Brians
Next house    Charlotte Dyer 25 - Ladies School
                      Louisa Dyer 25
                      Harriett 25

1851 census in South Hampton St Mary Hampshire
William Lodington head Mar 29 Agent in the P&O Steam Company Middlesex London
Harriet Do Wife Mar 31 Kent Fotscay
William Do Son          3   Do Lewisham
Louisa Dyer Visitor Un 32 Essex East Mer...

1861 census Shoreditch Tower Hamlets St John the Baptist
William Lodington Head Mar 41 Peninsular & Oriental S Navigation Co Middlesex London
Harriet    Do          Wife  Mar 42 Kent
Wm         Do          Son          13 Do Lewisham
On the page before also in Tower Hamlets St John the Baptist
Charlotte Dyer Head Un 48 Governess Kent
Louisa Dyer Sister Un 44 Music Teacher Essex
Samuel Do Nephew 7 Lancashire

I have found a death in 1862 for William Lodington and a Probate listing for him with a death date for 30 June 1862 granted to Harriet Lodington widow.

1871 Census Camberwell Lambeth
Charlotte Dyer         Lodger 57  Unm Annuitant         Kent Deptford
Louisa Do                 Lodger 50  Unm Do                   Essex East Ham(?)
Harriet Lodington     Lodger       W     Do                   Kent Sidcup (?)
William S  Lodington Visitor 22   Unm Shipping Clerk Kent Lewisham

Also a death for Harriet Lodington age 62 in Q3 1872 Vol 1d pg 438 Camberwell London
and one for William Lodington age 27 in Q4 1872 Vol 1a pg 308 Marylebone London

There does not appear to be any trace of either George E D Lodington prior to his marriage in 1873 or Edward H D Lodington other than an entry in India christenings in Secunderabad in 1863 where his date of birth is shown as 17 Mar 1840  with Father William Lodington and mother Harriett.

It seems unlikely that George and Edward are sons of this William and Harriet - so who are they?

I am hoping the Probate record for William 1862 will give some clarity as to is family although it is an Administration rather than a will.

Can anyone shed some light on this question, they are Lodingtons but how do they fit in?

Lorraine
Down - Colney Hatch, Tiverton Devon, Pilton Devon, East Down Devon;
Barker - Dumfries Scotland, Castlemaine Victoria, Sydney Australia;
Lodington - London
Rutherford - Dumfries, Earlston, Hownam, Chatto
Maxwell - Dumfries, Munches
Harris - Newcastle on Tyne
Mann - Gloucester
Wheare - Cornwall
Morris - NSW; Victoria
Anseline - NSW
Fenwick - NSW; Newcastle upon Tyne

Both George Edward Dyer Lodington and Edward Horace Dyer Lodington could be illegitimate sons of William Lodington and Harriet (or just Harriet and unknown father).  Harriet was born about 1819 in Footscray, Kent so would have been aged about 20 in 1839 when George Edward Dyer Lodington was born.

I believe their births are likely registered as Dyer.

Hi all,

noting that the date of this thread is quite old, I'm not sure if anyone will actually read this.

Thomas Lodington (who married Ann Day) was my 5th Great Grandfather. my line comes through his daughter Elizabeth Lodingtong who married George Jackson. Frederick Jackson (who emigrated to Australia after the death of his wife) was my 3rd Great Grandfather.  His Son (Frederick Jackson jnr) married Jessie Elizabeth Ferguson. Their Son Reginald Carmault Jackson was my Grandmothers father.

I inherited a copy of the Jackson family tree written by Frederick Jackson Snr for his son Frederick Jackson Jnr.

it has most of the families mentioned in this thread (ie Lodingtons from Elizabeth M Lodington, and the Soares connection).

I am currently looking into the lodington and Day families. I am enjoying reading your posts very much and am finding them very informative. Thank you so very much.

regards,

Nicola Mead.
