Helen & Sue
I wonder if you could help me!!
I'm currently trying to trace my fathers family tree and have noticed you have Augustus Brimmell in your e-mails to each other.

According to an aunty of mine, Augustus Brimmell born circa 1836 in Wellington Heath, Ledbury is my Great Great Great Grandfather (I think thats enough greats)
He had  8 children i believe, which down the line a few generations led to me!

Do you think this might be the same person, I think he married someone called Hannah??
Many Thanks
Tracey
Bentley, Sutton, Horner, Parfitts, and many more hopefully!!!

Hi Tracey,

I just wondered if you'd read your personal message that I've sent?

Hi Sue,

I think I've worked it out. Phew!!

I've looked for a baptism for John Smith and found one in 1806, Ledbury.

'John Brimmer Smith'

Son of Elizabeth Smith.

I'm guessing that Brimmer has been transcribed incorrect and should be Brimmell.  John was obviously illegitimate.  All his childrens baptisms would have to be in the name of 'Smith' as that is his name but he obviously chose to call  himself 'Brimmell' after his father's name.

Again I hope I'm making sense and I also hope I'm right with my hinch!

Hi Helen
Could you share details of that baptism? I've tried finding it on Ancestry and can't but he is my direct ancestor.  I had figured that he was born before their marriage but couldn't find any records.

Also, in relation to your earlier question on Augustus - I also can't work it out. The records that you and Sue have referred to actually seem to relate to Augusta - a female, not Augustus. If you check both the 1841 and 1851 census, the age is recorded for Augusta in the female column.
And I can't find any subsequent records for a male or female.  Have you been able to resolve it since your initial posts?
