Amazing Lady, Sad story
« on: Thursday 18 December 14 13:34 GMT (UK) »
My 3 X great Gran, Was a very interesting woman..
To my knowledge, she had 11 children, never married, and lived with at least 2 different men.. Shocking!.. lol
Anyway a couple of weeks ago, I was amazed to find a national newspaper article about her.. She had triplets, sadly all 3 died within months of their birth.. Im totally amazed at how she must have lived..
Her name was Emma King, And She lived in Strood, Frindsbury, Kent.. Her Triplets were called Jacob, Esau and Rachel.. I have found the triplets baptisms at St. Marys Strood, on 29th may 1895. I have found entries for the babies births in the July Qtr 1895 .. which is a bit strange.. I have found their death entries for Jacob & Rachel in Jul Qtr 1895, And Esaus in Oct Qtr 1895..
I cannot find any burial for the 3 of them.. I have searched through local parish records, and nothing..
As There was quite a few articles from lots of different newspapers, i was wondering if anyone has subscription and could look, to see if there is any more info, on Emma or the children..
Oh and if anyone has any ideas on where they could be buried that woud be great too.. x 
Many thanks

Dundee Courier - Thursday 06 June 1895
THREE AT A BIRTH. - The vicar of Frinsbury, near Rochester, yesterday baptised three newly born children of Emma King, a labourer's wife, the names given them being Esau, Jacob, and Rachel. The mother and infants are all doing well.

All the other papers just have the same wording, and that the date of the baptism was Wednesday 05 June 1895, but the information for all the papers probably  came from the same source. You had 42 days to register a birth, so there is nothing strange about the births being registered in the Sept

From 1849 there was a payment from the Queen of one guinea for each child of a multiple birth above two. She would have been eligible for this gift as mother of triplets, but the parents had to apply to the Privy Council for the gift when the children were born. To qualify, the births had to be live and in wedlock, and the parents British subjects.
