Annie Taylor & Joseph Denning
« on: Friday 09 January 15 20:24 GMT (UK) »
Annie Taylor was born in 1836 in Bristol. On the passenger lists for emigration to Australia she is listed as nationality "English & Welsh". She married Joseph Denning in 1861 in Almondsbury, St Mary, Gloucestershire. Her fathers name was Job Taylor/ or Robert Taylor.
She emigrated to Australia with Joseph in 1863. On her obituary in 1923 it said she was a native of the Bristol area. I'm struggling to find out any more about Annie. I'd love a birthdate, and any details of her family. Should I be looking in Somerset (the Dennings were based there) or Gloucestershire? Can't seem to find any info in either. I'm also interested in the "English and Welsh" listing on her emigration records. Any help, advice or info appreciated

Could you just say where you found the information about her birth in Bristol, and the choice of 2 father's names?

With the surname 'Taylor' we need as much info. as possible.

Thank-you

Also, was she definitely born in 1836?

In the 1861 census (before her marriage) there is an Annie Taylor in Almondsbury, visitor, born Iron Acton, servant, age 21, with the Sherman family.

There is a family of Dennings on the same page.

There is this baptism on family search.I wonder if she madeup a father's name to appear more respectable because she was illegitimate.

She is in several public trees on ancestry, but some have her popping backwards and forwards between the 2 countries.
