P'cock Cornwall
« on: Wednesday 09 May 18 22:11 BST (UK) »
In the 1861 census it states that James Dryden was born in P'cock Cornwall. I am unable to locate this.  He was born in 1811, so unable to search it throught the BMD districts. I would apreciate any help with thanks, anker_pep52 Canada

What does it say in 1851?   Was he still alive in 1871?

1851- Ancestry has it transcribed as "Roadhead" but a correction by a user makes it "Roundwood". On the original image I can certainly see the "-wood" at the end. Still no idea.

Worth noting- I believe the marriage is James DRYDEN to Hannah AVEY nee HARTLEY 1840 St Mary, Lambeth, Surrey, his father was Thomas DRYDEN.

Could 1851 be Ruan Major/Ruan Minor?

I did wonder that, although there's definitely another c in there.

1871- James is alive but not with his family. The ancestry user infers that his entry is as a lodger in a house in London, place of birth simply "Cornwall".

To further the marriage- father Thomas is a gent. Residence at time of marriage is Walcot Square?

Carole and Ayashi: To answer your queries. Hannah married Thomas Avey in Doncaster Yorks, St Georges in 1834. Son Thomas born 1835 & died 1836- Thomas died 1838. She is my grt grt grandad's sister..She married James Dryden Nov 1840 at St Marys, Lambeth Surrey. 1841 Census of Cornwall states he was not born in the county.  1851 Census, I believe residence was in Exeter, St Leonard Parish-address 3 Baring ? Terrace, and born Roundwood Cornwall.??  1861 Census residing Twnshp. of Litchurch Derby. 1871 James was lodger, 2 Conant Pl, St Anne, Limehouse Ldn.born Cornwall & lodging with the Allen family. His name was listed as Jas. Dryden., Hannah was in St Werburgh Derby, 53 Abbey ST, with 4 of her children.  In 1876 James was admitted to the Derby Lunacy, listed as a pauper. and death 4 July 1876. The 6 children were all born in Devon, Surrey and Deryshire. They moved alot. It may be that he didn't know for sure where he was born. Where did you find James' fathers information and in which county was he from?  Thanks for your replies as James place of birth still is a conundrum. Janet

Image of the Marriage is on Anc.

Is it possible he was older and dropped his age?

P'cock could be Feock.
Census has a Sarah Dryden born c 1813-1818 born Feock. She never marries and on one Census she is born Truro.
Cant find a Baptism for her though.


FreeREG has a unnamed Male Dryden Bapt 21 Apr 1805, St Uny, Redruth
Parents THOMAS/JOANNA

Several children for them;
JOHN GREEN 03 Feb 1807
JOHANNE    24 Jul 1808
MARY 19 Feb 1819 born 1815
ELIZABETH 19 Feb 1819 born 1817
WILLIAM HENRY 26 Feb 1822 born 1820
(may be others as I didnt use soundex option)

Last 2 have Fathers occp as Merchants Clerk

Marriage is also on FreeREG 25 Jan 1801, Johanna MARDON/Thomas DRYDEN

1851 Census we have;
Anna Edwards, 42
Marianna Edwards, 11
George D Edwards, 10
Henry S Edwards, 8
JOANNA Dreaden, 70, Mother, Widow, Annuitant, born Bow, Devon
Grace Johns, 28
Charles Hale, 3
Elizabeth Vivian, 19

Joanna DRYDEN married Frederic Stackhouse Davey EDWARDS 1836 (FreeREG)

Burial, 11 Jul 1843, St Mary, Truro
THOMAS Dryden age 65

1841 Census
Thos Droydon, 62, Accountant
Anna Droydon, 60
Elizabeth Droydon, 24
Thomas/Joanna NOT born in County

Elizabeth married 1844, Father Thomas. General Agent.

So given occp's for Thomas her certainly could be named as a Gent on a M/C

Worth mulling over at least!

Possible Burial for a JAMES Dryden 17 Dec 1805 St Uny, Redruth
No other info given.

So is this the unnamed Male 1805 who I though may be yours or someone else entirely.

If it was the 1805 Bapt they may have named another Son James c 1811.
