OK so what appears to be same family in 1851:-

Joseph Dodge b 1825 occ Greengrocer b Shoreditch
Emily 1828 b St Matthew Bethnal Green
Emily 1 month b Shoreditch
HO107/1536/310/1

Marriage Joseph Dodge to Emily Taylor Dec qtr 1848 Islington 3 221
So where is Joseph jnr from 1861 if same family?

PS just re-read thread, have I missed the reference to father being a Greengrocer?

Hi the only way at present to clear up this apparent query is, if you are certain the Joseph Napoleon we have followed through to possibly 1911, is your Joseph, would be to purchase the birth certificate, then at least you can confirm occupation of father, and maiden name etc of mother?

Hi

Looking at the 1851 & 61 census. On the 61 census Josephs age is 14, although they have misread it as 11 thereby giving year of birth as 1850. 1851 His mother is Harriet & father John. He has siblings Henry H, John J, Ercole C & Frederick although another misreading gives the family as Gedge , Joseph & Frederick start a new page with correct name translations.They are at 5 Orange St St George the Martyr, Middlesex, England. Joseph b Shoreditch. In 1861 Henry, Joseph & Frederick remain with family although John (father) is scrubbed out (must be absent) described as commercial traveller. No age for him but birth at St Anns Westminster. I found Ercole's baptism just to link the family, can,t have been many
England, Births and Christenings, 1538-1975
Birth:   28 Feb 1844   
Ercole Charles Dodge
Christening:   24 Mar 1844   CHRIST CHURCH,?HOXTON,?LONDON,?ENGLAND Parents:   John Dodge,? Harriet. Christian names in those days tended to have a degree of laxity.

By the way I did this research for your cousin Sally who lives in Beer Devon.

hi Mark,

Thank you very much for all of this , yes Sally is my cousin i got started on this a few years ago and then didnt have the time to look any further and didnt really know how i gave everything i found out to sally and thankfully she has got you to help out with the family mysteries which fascinate us both , and now it looks even more interesting  ERCOLE what a name  , we have always found joseph napoleon a bit of a name considering what was going on near that time !!

Is there anymore you can find out ?

Sally and myself have been told a few bits about the family history but not much past our grandfather Edwin , his wife  vera (our grandmother) used to let on more than our grandfather and we have been told bits of the history but possibly some of it what they wanted us to know !

Hi,

It's registrations now so you need to confirm parents of Joseph from marriage registration - I think you can order from findmypast.com - you have to buy credits from them - there are other ways - don't remember specifically.

Obviously Ercole dodge is a name to pursue if he is JNDs brother. Or get JNDs birth certificate - that will give you parents surnames. That would be a good start to confirm everything up until now. Going back further is difficult as BMDs were not registered before 1837 on any national level - that would mean visits to local family history centres - OK if you are in London - trickier if you live down here. I have probably taken it as far as possible for free - you now need another break to kick start further research. The main problem is that the family probably disappear into the seething mass of humanity of early 19th century so  difficult to trace with any confidence. I will have another look at any other sources I have. Let me know if you firm up any names.

Gilbeys is another line - there is quite a lot of interest online referring to Johanna - especially from descendants of her children from second marriage. Look at the letters you have for any clues. One of her grandchildren was told she was the daughter of Sir Walter and she was raised by Gilbey grandparents although names on census do not tally with Sir Walter's parents. But with illegitimacy it is alway sgoing to be difficult.

Hi,

I think you'll find the GRO would be less expensive than getting BMD certificates from Findmypast.

Regards.
Concentrating currently on:
Essex: Card, Harris, Stowell, Theobald/Tibbles & Turner.
Norfolk: Beale, Cork & Dalton.
Yorkshire: Oswald Sturdy birth/baptism c1708, Oswald where the devil are you?

ERCOLE what a name  , we have always found joseph napoleon a bit of a name considering what was going on near that time !!  Is there anymore you can find out ?

Just for info. it would appear the origin of the name Ercole is Italian meaning “splendid gift"  (Italian version of Hercules)
 
I have to say any child is a splendid gift  :)

Or
Ercole meaning ‘Hera’s Glory’ mainly Italian


Obviously Ercole dodge is a name to pursue if he is JNDs brother Or
get JNDs birth certificate - that will give you parents surnames.

That would be a good start to confirm everything up until now.


Not sure if you have this info. or how accurate it is no middle name given for Ercole's brother Joseph

There’s this link families with surname of Dodge, http://www.dodgefamily.org/Genealogy/EnglishDodges/worldfile/index/ind0069.html this is the info. they have listed for Ercole Charles Dodge

John Dodge b1803 died 17 Jun 1898 Kentish Town married 1832 St Anne’s Westminster
Harriet Rose died 28 Aug 1873 Thanet Ramsgate

named children of John & Harriet

ERCOLE CHARLES 28 Feb 1844 Hoxton New Town married 1 Jun 1868 Sophia Clementine Stuart

Joseph 1847 Hoxton New Town

Fredrick 1851 “          “          “

No actual birth/baptism dates for Stuart and only date/place for Joseph & Frederick

As keyboard said the only way to confirm Joseph Napolean Dodge’s parentage etc is to order the 1846 birth certificate 

Here are the references of Joseph Napolean & Ercole Charles from FreeBMD, you can order from GRO if you wish (see the link provided by findem)
