1871 census Look Up for Poplar Please
« on: Thursday 10 March 05 22:22 GMT (UK) »

Just a thought, you need to read between the lines for this one.......

1st a Marriage to Elizabeth Matthews(ties in with 1891 Census)

Surname    First name(s)        District    Vol    Page 
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marriages Sep 1887
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Matthews    Elizabeth        Mile End    1c   757    
MINKEY    Theophilus         Mile End    1c   757    
Walker    Robert         Mile End    1c   757    
WEBB    Esther Rebecca         Mile End    1c   757

2nd Maybe she struggles with Child Birth?

Surname    First name(s)    Age    District    Vol    Page 
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Deaths Mar 1888
------------------------------------------------------------------------

MINKEY    Theophilus    0    Poplar    1c   464    


3rd Still struggles with Child Birth?

Births Jun 1890
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Minkey    Caroline E*zabeth         Poplar    1c   672

4th Complications after Child Birth? I assume a Death cert. would confirm.

Deaths Jun 1890
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Minkey    Elizabeth    20    Whitechapel    1c   234

This would tie in the Minkey and Matthews families and account for Theophilus being a Widow in 1891.

Any thoughts?

Thanks Darren.
Yes that's them.  I had found their marriage also from free BDM.
I have had some communication with another Matthews connection and they also believe that Elizabeth died in child birth.
I would really like to find parents of Theophilus Minkey.
There were Minkeys in Poplar 1881 but he doesn't appear
Unusal name but seems no one researching it.
 You are right I really do need the marriage certificate.  Not sure how I go about getting one , who to get it through etc. I'm in New Zealand.

There's only 12 Minkey's in the 1881 Census 2 older people in Cornwall and the rest could possibly all belong to the same family and in theory they could all belong to the same family, if that's the case then they could well be Theophilus' family.

Thanks Darren.
I guess you are looking at the Minkey family with Lavinia as the Head. fairly large family.  I'm also picking it's probably his family because if I remember correctly without looking for it again. The children appear to have been born Poplar.
I was wanting to get back beyond 1881 census in the hope of finding Theophilus with the family.
Thanks for the advice re ordering certificates.
Thanks again for all you help.  This site is great!

I couldn't find Theophilus in 1871 or Lavinia's Family but that could be to do with Frederick Minkey who's on the HMS Duke of Wellington as a Petty Officer in 1881, at a guess Lavinia's Husband, the family may well be fairly well travelled.
