Surnames Beaney, Jones, Ripley
« on: Friday 26 April 19 15:34 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Im moving on from researching my father's side of the family to my mother's.
They are travellers and wondered if anybody had some initial advice or tips for me before I delve into what I can only imaging might be a Well of innacurate recordings/nicknames/constantly changing locations/multiple names etc etc.

I don't feel prepared haha

thanks

Shaun

Do you have links to Faversham?

Could you post any info you have on non living descendents?

Thanks for your reply nelwild.

First of all, its probably worth saying that the name Beeney/beaney is spelt both ways within my family. My grandmother spelt it differently to her brothers.

My grandmother was Ada Bundock nee Beeney. B. 15 nov 1923 D. 10May 2004.

Her parents were John Beeney 1896-1954 and Ada Beeney nee Jones. 1897-1958.

The only other info I know is that some earlier generation. One of the Beeney’s married a Ripley.

Thats all i know from my family.

I don’t know of any of my family being from Faversham. But theres a chance because they are based in Kent.

My grandmother was born in Northfleet, kent. And i know her parent lives in northfleet befor that.

Thanks

Shaun

Have you got their marriage certificate for names of parents? (Medway 1916?)

Have you found them in 1939?

Are you sure you have the correct years for them?

Do you know what other children they had?

I also think your birth/death dates are somewhat awry!   Free Index for 1939 shows both John and Ada as born 1890 - indeed, checking census and birth entries etc. John  was actually born in 1889, son of Job Beaney and Phoebe and this is where Ripley comes in: Job Beaney married Phoebe Ripley 1877 East Grinstead, Kent.

Job Beaney born 1855, bp.11/3/1855 Frant, Sussex son of Absalom Beaney and Janette Hilton (married 1841 Sevenoaks).

When you view the census you'll find their given birthplaces are not always where they were subsequently baptised, plus spelling of surname varies slightly from one document to another.
