TAVENER family,Stoke under Hawdon
« on: Monday 09 October 17 10:13 BST (UK) »
The 1911 NZ death certificate of my ggrandmother,Elizabeth Anthony lists her parents as George Robbins and Elizabeth Robbins formerly Tavener.A copy of the latters death certificate (ie Elizabeth Robbins) reconfirms George as her spouse, married 25/12/1853 St Pancras,London and also gives her parents as Peter and Catherine (born Young); farmers.

From the 1841 Census I have found presumably the correct ancestral link as below:

          Peter and Catherine Tavener living in Stoke under Hamdon,Somerset and (implied) children
         
           Maria          20- 24
            James        20 - 24
           Mary            15 - 19
           Elizabeth       12
           Harriot            1

Given the age span of the family I suspect Harriot may be the child of Maria or James.Then I find the marriage of Maria to John Whitehead in Yeovil,1850 and that family listed in the 1851 census as:-
          John Whitehead   Head          33
          Maria Whitehead  Wife           33
          Harriett Tavener   Dau in law   11
           Lewis   Tavener   Son in law     8
           Mary Whitehead  Daughter      10 months

 However I am unable to find records for Peter and Catherine Tavener apart from the 1841C listing.

  Would be grateful for any assistance for this couple. Surname variants differ between Tavener,Taverner and Taviner!!

Thanks for any leads

The 1853 marriage certificate states that her father Peter is 'Dead'

Adult ages on the 1841 census were (generally) rounded down to a multiple of 5 years.

Both Peter and Catherine have a stated age of 50 - meaning an actual age of between 50 and 54.
Both were born in Somerset.

Unfortunately, Peter appears to die in 1843?
September qtr 1843
Yeovil Registration District     vol 10, page 365
Taviner, Peter     Age (on GRO) = 61

But I can't see a baptism for Peter in Stoke-sub-Hamdon
