Miles Family of Minety and or Broad Hinton
« on: Wednesday 04 June 14 18:10 BST (UK) »
I am looking into the Miles family of Minety and Broad Hinton/Clyff Pypard and would appreciate any help from others looking into them. Particularly what happened to Martha Ann Miles nee Lewis.

Hi,

Can you post dates, marriage etc., for Martha Ann.

Was she born 1868 and married Thomas Edmund Miles 1893? Have you checked the following
entry on 1901 census

RG13/1926; Folio: 170; Page: 30.
Roundway Devizes.
County Lunatic Asylum

Martha Ann Miles aged 32 married - birth place is given a Chichester, Sussex.

There is a death on Freebmd 
Martha A Miles  Dec Q 1821 Devizes

Think this could be her Husband
1901 Census Broad Town Wiltshire
RG13; Piece: 1911; Folio: 9; Page: 10.
Miles Thomas  age 36, states married but no wife at address.

Thanks. I have been able to find info on her birth through to the asylum. Unfortunately my mother says she remembers her dying after about 1933 and talk of her not remembering family members and that she was committed after the death of her daughter Catherine Elizabeth (post partum depression?). Again there is a question of how the daughter died. Is there any way to find info on the people in the asylum?

Hi,

Wiltshire & Swindon Archives, not sure what you will be allowed to see as she did not die
until 1921 suggest you contact them:-

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/a2a/records.aspx?cat=190-j4&cid=-1#-1

There is only 1 death registered in Devizes Registration District, which included Roundway
as previously posted  see http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl.
