GGGGrandfather TOWNSEND / BAILEY
« on: Tuesday 29 March 16 17:38 BST (UK) »
Hi new to Roots Chat would love for somebody to help me:
I'm trying to find a Maria Townsend formerly Bailey born 1800 Norfolk married to Henry Townsend born 1820 Stratton Gloucs . I have them  both on 1851 census along with George Townsend my GGGrandfather and a Harry Townsend.
Struggling to find the marriage and the deaths of both Henry and Maria.
Thanks Steve

Hi

Welcome to rootschat

Does Maria's maiden name come from one of the childrens birth registrations.  Is it possiblethat she was previously married.

GOOD POINT Rosie - she was 20 yrs older than Henry ...
this might be worth looking at ...Maria Minty ...I will see if she was nee Bailey

ADDED    Steve - can you post your 1851 census research please for Henry and Maria and family ??

In 1851 the family are in Kensington;

Henry aged 37 born Stratton, Glouc.
Maria aged 51 b Norfolk
George 4 b Kensington
Harry 1 b Kensington

If she had been previously married both former names should be shown BUT may not have been. She would have married with her 'married' name. That was my first thought in view of the age difference - although from the census in 1851 - it's 14 years and not 20 years difference.

Places of interest;
Lancashire, West Yorkshire, Southern Ireland, Scotland.
