Smith Family of Essex
« on: Friday 26 November 10 23:45 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I hope someone may be able to help me with the Smith family of Essex (Barking, Stratford, Ilford, East Ham).

I believe from looking at parish records my great great great great grandparents were James and Jane Smith who had the following children (all children were baptised in St Margaret's church, Barking, Essex);

Elisabeth Smith baptised 11th October 1795
Margaret May? Smith baptised 9th September 1798
James Smith baptised 23rd October 1803
William Smith baptised 23rd October 1803
Henry David? Smith born 25th December 1805, baptised 15th June 1806
Charles Smith baptised 17th May 1807
Alfred Smith baptised 10th November 1811

Henry Smith was my great great great grandfather (born 1805, Barking, Essex), and it appears he married Mary Ann from 1841, 1851, 1861 census returns and had the following children;

Henry Smith born circa 1826/1827
Mary Ann Smith born 1830 Barking, Essex and who appears to have married a Stephen Smith
James Smith born 1835, Barking, Essex
George Smith born c.1837 Ilford, Essex
Sarah Smith born circa 1840, Ilford, Essex

George Smith (my great great grandfather) married Catherine Hart in Dec quarter 1860 in Greenwich. From the marriage certificate it lists his father as Henry Smith, a bricklayer.

Are there any census returns  (1841, 1851, 1861, 1871, 1881 etc) for the other siblings of George Smith, or for James and Jane Smith and their respective children in the Barking, East Ham, Ilford or Stratford areas.

I'm not particularly good at researching the English side of my family.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated  :) :)
