Hello Alan,

A Thomas Weedon appears in the Herts Militia lists from 1758 to 1763 noted as a labourer from Kings Langley with 5 children by 1763.  Cannot find record of his marriage to Jane's mother.  Does this help at all?

In early records of my Weedon/Weeden family the use of an O or E seems interchangeable, but eventually settles on the E version. So can I ask about my Weeden/on family?

I am trying to find the origins of William Weedon/en and his wife Sarah?

I have found that there are several marriages in the IGI that could potentially be them, one that I feel could be them is a William Weedon (Weden) who married a Sarah Bradley in Aldenham Hertford on 30 Apr 1808. There seem to be a lot of Weedon's in the area of Aldenham, Abbots Langley and Kings Langley, and some of them are on Archive records as being "Waggoner's". Which would fit with my William being a Groom, Stable Master and Coach Proprietor.

Here is a summary of records I have.

William Weeden (Weedon) born around 1780 to 86 in England.
Married Sarah ?? (born around 1776-81) and had two children that we know of;-

3 MAY 1820; baptized in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire.
Jemima Thomasina, daughter of William and Sarah WEEDON.
Parents abode;- Sysonby in this Parish.
Fathers trade- Groom.

3 July 1823. baptized Tardebigge Worchestershire.
William, son of William and Sarah WEEDEN. [parents abode]- Tutnell. Tardebigg, Worcestershire, England [Fathers profession]- Master of the Earl of Plymouth's stables.

Both these children married in Middlesex, William in 1842 and Jemima in 1851. On both marriage records the fathers profession is listed as "Coach Proprietor"

I have just recently confirmed that he did indeed run "The Age" fast coach service between London and Brighton in the early 1830's.

1841 Census lists them in Brighton.
Western Road Brighton.
William Weeden age 55, Coach Proprietor, not born in Sussex
Sarah Weeden age 50, not born in Sussex.
William Weeden, age 15, Clerk. Not born in Sussex.

Cannot find any of them (except Jemima, now surnamed Bryant) in the 1851 census.

Any comments appreciated.

Looking for a marriage between Ruth Weedon bp. 9 May 1824 Caxton, Cambs, daughter of James & Elizabeth Weedon, and William Toms of St Stephen, St Albans in about 1846.  She died in 1867 in St Albans.  The Weedon family were living in Hertfordshire in 1841.

Hi

1846 Sep  St Albans    6   655

Looks like they were "neighbours" in 1841 (2 pages apart in the census return)
HO107 439 4 41 Pages  4 & 7
St Stephens, District 14, Page(pair) 2 (William) & 4 (Ruth)

Although everyone is marked as "Born in County"

Thank you Ray
I hadn't realised that they lived so close together although I knew it was St Albans.  However, I have not found a marriage for them.
Their first child Emma was my great grandmother and she was baptised in 1848.

Re: WEEDON Family parents of Joseph?
« Reply #17 on: Thursday 19 June 14 15:19 BST (UK) »
I have traced my Weedon's back to Joseph (abt 1757-1827) who married Mary Davies 28 Mar 1779 at St Giles Cripplegate.  Joseph's siblings include John (d. 1790 of small pox), George (settled in Uxbridge), and two unmarried sisters Mary Ann and Patience/Patricia who were alive to witness Joseph's will in 1827.

Who are their parents?  Family stories claim their father had a large family by his first marriage in Buckinghamshire and then came to London and had these children by his second wife, Mary Howard.
She was of a non-conformist church.  Joseph was a habardasher, later generations were drapers and lace merchants.

Any connections to your Weedons?  Would also appreciate suggestions for searching pre-1800 Bucks/Middlesex from "across the pond" (Illinois USA)
