Look up 1891 - Epping - Joseph Napoleon Dodge
« on: Friday 17 August 12 16:58 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I was hoping someone could help me please.

I am looking for Joseph Napoleon Dodge born Bethnal Green (1846/1852)

married to Johanna Catherine Gilbey

one son I know of  Joseph Dodge Junior b. 1890

one later son Edward F Dodge born 1899.

Don't know much else - Joseph has a registered birth in 1846 but marriage certificate (1889) and death entry 1924 both equate to 1852!

Any help much appreciated.

Thanks, Mark

Be careful!
There is a Joseph Dodge, born 1845 in Buckinghamshire, also living in London.
Also a Joseph Frederick Dodge, born 1849 in Islington.

But there is the marriage:
28th January 1889, St James the Great, Bethnal Green
Joseph Napoleon Dodge (37, bachelor) to Johanna Catherine Gilbey (21, spinster)

Fathers: Joseph Dodge (deceased) and Thomas John Gilbey (deceased)
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

wow this is very intriguing as my friend says there is something of a family mystery about Joseph Dodge.

The wife Johanna Catherine is nee Gilbey and the family believe she was a relative of Sir Walter Gilbey - the family who introduced the widespread use of the wine bottle in England - not sure if there is some link there - this family's circumstances don't appear to warrant a relationship with a Baronet!

Hi  their is also this marriage, and I believe Joseph Davis is still around ten years from the last census?
