Who did he marry?!
« on: Wednesday 03 April 19 15:24 BST (UK) »
Hello!

I am researching William Stockwell who was born in Yorkshire 1823.

In 1851 he is listed as living with wife, Ann and daughter Harriet in Leeds where he worked as a Flyer & Cylinder Maker.

Tracing through the censuses i have found out he had more children but they seem too have different mother maiden names listed??

Harriet Stockwell b. 1848                              MMN - SHORE
Hannah Maria Stockwell b. 1851                    MMN - MEAR
Dancy Stockwell b. 1855                               MMN - MAYALL
John William Stockwell b. 1858                      MMN - MAYALL


I found a marriage for a William Stockwell and Ann Shore in 1846 in which the occupation for both William and his father match but in 1861 Harriet is living with her grandmother - Ann MAYALL.

I thought maybe his first wife Ann SHORE may have died and he remarried a MAYALL but i cannot find any proof of that? Am i missing something?

1851 for Ann Stockwell gives her age as 33 and place of birth as Newton Yerth (Heath?) Lancashire
Other census have Oldham

Baptism Ann Shore - Mother Ann Shore
23 Apr 1818
Oldham, St Peter, Lancashire

Marriage after Ann's birth
Thomas Mayall
Ann Shore
19 Nov 1820
Oldham, St Mary, Lancashire

Presumably Ann junior took on her stepfathers surname but did not know which surname to use when registering births of her children, her surname of Shore or adopted surname Mayall

That would make sense! I knew i was overthinking it!

Ann listed her father on her marriage certificate as John Shore an Engineer so sound like it was most probably a little fib or exaggeration.

The occupation of Engineer seems to fit well into the family  :)
