ACKLING & BATTS families; Highworth.
« on: Saturday 24 September 11 06:32 BST (UK) »
For 30 years have been researching the Ackling family from Highworth.  Daniel Ackling was born c1800, and was a journeyman-sackweaver; his wife was Jane Wakefield.  His son Henry, came to Sydney on the 'Golconda' in 1858, and married Winifred Batts.  Eventually lived in Randwick and died in Redfern in 1910.  His house in Randwick is still lived in by a relative, and is classified a 'National Trust' building.

I am after the birthdate of Daniel Ackling (d.12/1871 in Highworth), and who may have been born in Highworth.  He was married to Jane Wakefield.  Also after forebears of Daniel.  And after birth of Henry Ackling's wife Winifred Batts--c1842, and name of Winifred's biological father, as Charles Ward is a stepfather.

Hi

Sorry Clive, not answering your question but his death gives his age as 61 ie born c1810, census have him as bn c1813.

What do you know about Winifred Batts place of birth?

Rosie/
             I am unable to help with the discrepancy about census and age given, as I never have known the date of Daniel's birth.   As for Winifred's birth place, it could have been Highworth, but do not know.  I was sent a listing of BATTS transcribed from the registers in 1998 by Marcus Wild, showing births & deaths from Highworth and from Gloucestershire---but sadly, no Winifred listed.

1851 census at Towns End, Highworth

Daniel Ackling age 39 a Hawker bn Abingdon, Berkshire
Jane age 40 bn Statton (?), Wiltshire
Elizabeth 19 bn Abingdon, Berks

rest of children bn Highworth.
Caroline 17
Henry 14
Emma 12
Mary Ann 10
Edwin 8
Sarah 6
William 1

As the first child was born in Abingdon and Daniel gives that as his place of birth have you looked there for a marriage?

I presume this is the right family  :-\  If so it looks as though Jane died in 1867 and Daniel remarried in 1870 - his marriage cert should give his fathers name.

This surely has to be the right Daniel & Jane.  For the son Henry listed would have been born in 1837, and I know that Henry was bapt 10-2-1837.Even though the date of Jane being 40 in 1851 means she was born in 1811---whereas I have her birth as 21-3-1802 from some source from many years ago. Mind you, I never did know of the other seven siblings !  If, as it would now seem, the Acklings came from Berkshire, then I must give some time to searching there for links.   Again many thanks for what you have turned up Rosie.
