william Tucker
« on: Sunday 09 February 14 18:13 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find out information about a William tucker who was with a woman called Hannah or Anna. On the 1851 census he is living with his wife Hannah in Yeovil and son aged 12. He is a mat maker. He is aged 50ish. As they have only 1 child I wonder if they ever married or were married before. There is no record of them before.

The census says he was born in coleford. He moved to taunton and their son married in 1858 to Maryann crawley of Ireland. Over the years William jnr changed his place of birth. By the 1861 census he must have died as Anna is now a lodger and a widow living with her son and wife.

I would like to know some info before they went to Yeovil. Did they have other partners?
Did they come to Somerset for a special reason? Did they have brothers or sister?

This is the 1851 entry - they are lodgers so no relationship is shown between William & Harriet but both are shown as married so it's probably safe to assume they are man & wife

At the same time there is a family in the Taunton area that would fit the younger William in Taunton in 1861. The only problem is that William the father here is a butcher, which doesn;t fit the later family's hawking and travelling background

William the son married in 1858 . By 1861 on the census it says Anna is a lodger and a widow. From 1861 we can trace the family. But William changes his place of birth, he is impossible to find where he was born really. Why did they come south west to taunton as we cannot find any real family although this is a local name. On William jnr wedding lines it says mother Anna and his occupation is a mat maker which all his family became. So the 1851 census fits but who was he and who was she?

I think I've found them but Anna Tucker is a lodger - she is not shown as his mother

Also - she is 60yrs old whereas Harriet in 1851 was 41

Thanks for that info about the dates I hadn't noticed yet the  trade is correct ans his descendent s did the same, but I thought Anna was his wife, I thought too Harriet could be Hannah..its a complete mystery I have a copy of the wedding certificate and he is a William Tucker mat maker. I will have another look at the details. Can't understand why they came from coleford or forest of dean to taunton. I am trying to get to the records office to check his death. ItIthink he wasn't a Tucker.
