Charles John DONNE/DOUNE
« on: Saturday 24 March 18 08:57 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help me regarding a Charles John DONNE/DOUNE.

All I know about him is, he married a Bethia WATERS (maiden name KIDMAN) in Pancras, London 1872.

No idea of his age or who his parents were.

Any information would be very much appreciated.

He is elusive isn't he.

There's a Charles Doune 36 in 1881 builder and undertaker but down as unmarried.

Living Hendon Middlesex with widowed father Henry 66 and sister Harriott 29. 

Any children for Charles and Bethia before she passed away?

Don't know if he is the right person but as you can imagine surname is transcribed in a variety of ways!

1871 - Downe
1861 - Danne
1851 - Sonne

Probably not actually as he has a middle name Jesse not John  :(

On the 1881 census Charles J Downey 22 and his wife Bertha A 21 are at 39 Roderick Road, St Pancras. Charles is an engraver copper plate born St Pancras, Bertha born Cape, Surrey.
I know this seems unlikely but I have only seen a transcript, check original for ages.

Ages are quite readable at 22 and 21 so can't be them - especially if Bethia has died already  :(

Marriage for that couple Kensington 1880

Yes, he is elusive. Have another spelling DOANE. As far as I know she had no children.

Bethia was married before, March 1866 but sadly her husband died October 1867. Six years later  she married Charles John  in 1872. A little information below:

... the body of a lady was found floating in the river Ouse at Bedford, and has been since identified as that of the missing Mrs. Doane. At the inquest held upon the body by Dr. Prior, at the Ship Hotel. Bedford, Mrs. Annie limes, a boarding-house keeper, ...

Hope to find out more regarding this tragic death. Bethia was only 36 years old.

Oh gosh what a sad story  :(

There are a number of family trees with her on, haven't checked them all but so far they only have her first husband nothing about Charles.

I can't see the second marriage online unfortunately to find more information about him  :-\
