Looking in Rendham for Gissing Boast
« on: Sunday 13 January 19 00:28 GMT (UK) »
I have him up to the 1861 census in Rendham Green with his parents. He was born in Rendham Plomesgate in 1844 one of twins.
I have searched all pages of the 71 81 and 91 census for the area by eye and didn't spot him, there are no GRO or BMD records for him that I can see. Can anyone find a marriage or burial for this man? I'm up north and there isn't much online to search, found some gravestone transcripts for the parish church but obviously it won't be all burials there.
Thanks

I notice the 1861 census the family were living near Hill House (now Rendham Court). Also, at this time a very strong Congregational chapel in the village. As he was given his mother's maiden name as his first name (yes, we have that too), he may have preferred to be known as something else? Although in our case centuries later it continues.
Every time I find an ancestor,
I have to find two more!

Thanks for that, I have wondered about him using another Christian name and Ancestry searches seem to suggest a person when I look, perhaps I will follow up that lead. Thanks for the change of name for Hill House also. I wonder, if you know that area would you know if the "old workhouse" is still standing and where it was in the village. The family lived there at one time. I'm trying to find an image of it.

The Old Workhouse prior to the establishment of the Unions http://www.workhouses.org.uk/Plomesgate/

The Saxmundham one was in Rendham Road, although I would need to investigate further to be sure of the location. These Old Workhouses were usually in cottages, and not many survive. Investigating the Sax/Rendham one is something to do when the weather improves :-)

Certainly the one for Framlingham was within the Castle.

After 1834 Plomesgate Poor Law Union came into being and the Union Workhouse was built at Wickham Market, now Deben Court as mentioned above.

Thanks for that.
The workhouse  I'm looking at is in Rendham near the Green (1851)
The family are Samuel Boast and his wife Elizabeth along with their 5 children and some other family, 11 people in all, I have a note to say the workhouse was turned into cottages (info from one of my searches I think) I can't find it on any maps and no images exist as far as I can see.

Also could you possibly translate the address in this image for me please? It's from 1881

Hill House Rendham can be seen on this map, just north of Rendham.

In the 1980s I worked in the Saxmundham/Framlingham area and  an old lady in Sweffling.
told me that her great (I think) grandmother had been born in the Parish house and that it had been converted to a house. At the time I went to see where it was but did not research if her information was correct.
Using 'Google Maps' Start at The White Horse, Rendham, turn right out of the pub along Bruisyard Road, take first turning right up Chapel Road, Just beyond Sandy Lane on the right is a house side on to the road. The house has a builder's sign and blue circle on the wall.

Red herring or not?
