Broadhurst in Knighton
« on: Wednesday 24 February 10 19:56 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for any information on the following family:

1861c RG9 4233/f18/30 Knighton

Isaac Broadhurst 31 Lab Leominster Herefordshire
Ellen         "         34 (W) Waterford
Isaac        "         12 (S) Ludlow Salop
Sophia      "          9  (D)Abergavenny,Mon
John         "          3  (S)Knighton Radnor
Richard     "          1mnth    "            "

1871c RG10 5596/31/1
Knighton Workhouse - John Broadhurst (13)

This is all I have but I would like the address(if poss) 1861c
& who in the family besides John is in the workhouse 1871c
Any info on this family would be appreciated.John was my Gt Grandfather.
If anyone could find out whether John had a 2nd name that would be ideal as I do know that later in life he changed his 1st name to George & also changed his last name slightly. ???

Regards

Hiya,

In 1871, there is also a Frederick Broadhurst in Knighton Workhouse.  He is aged 10 and born in Knighton, Radnorshire.

In 1861, the family are living at Market Street in Knighton, no house numbers but they are 3 doors down from the Kings Head.

According to freebmd, there was a birth for John Broadhurst in Jun quarter 1858 Knighton 11b 123 - no middle name on index.  There was, however, a birth and possible death for a George Broadhurst - birth in Jun qtr 1856 and death in Jun qtr 1857.  Perhaps when the parents decided to recycle the name George, or perhaps when John was thinking about changing his name he used a name that was familiar to him.

This is superb,everything seems to make sense now.I am sure you are right re:the change of name to George.Just 1 point you have John Broadhurst Jun qtr 1858.
11b 123.Someone else in a PM gave me 11b 169 BMD

he had 3 sisters:
Hannah bap 30 Sep 1821

Thank you for this info,so it appears that John picked his Grandfathers name when he changed it.

We all make mistakes,I do it too many times these days(quite worrying really)
So was there a George Broadhurst b.June qtr 1856 as you stated in your last post & if so was he born in Knighton also.
