Hi

Thanks for clarifying  the family connections.

Although there was no marriage between George HUNT and Louisa POWELL,  were they know to have lived together at any time as in a state of marriage? 

Just wondering, where George HUNT's name was recorded as the father of Louisa Mary POWELL - was it on her 1859 Birth Certificate?


Here baptism record

Louisa Mary Powell born 13th Oct 1859   
Baptism 6 Nov 1859 Hampstead St John, Camden
Mother:   Louisa  & G (has been crossed out)

Louisa Mary POWELL  - (Gro Indexes  mn blank)
1859  D Quarter in HAMPSTEAD  Volume 01A  Page 484

Silly O'Clock here, so chucking this in and off to bed  ;D

I think the following is the family of the George HUNT of the 1911 (1901, 1891) Census AND that he is indeed the 1871 Marriage between George HUNT and Emily Harriet AUSTIN:

MARRIAGE of his parents: 

Mar Qtr 1840, Bermondsey
George HUNT & Susannah NORTH

BIRTHS of their children, all registered Bermondsey, up to 1852:
(and recalling the 1891 Census, the middle initial 'R' of George)

George Richard HUNT,  Sep Qtr 1840, mms NORTH
James HUNT Jun Qtr 1845, mms NORTH
Caroline HUNT Jun Qtr 1847 mms NORTH
John HUNT, Sep Qtr 1849, mms NORTH
Henry  HUNT, Sep Qtr 1852 mms NORTH


CENSUS 1841: At Great George Street, in this dwelling are:
Richard JOHNSON, 35, Leather Dresser - Y
Elizabeth JOHNSON 35, - Y
/
George HUNT 20, Labourer - Y
Susannah HUNT 20 - Y
George HUNT 9 mths - Y /
Plus a man FOSTER, a couple LANG, and a woman FOSTER

(Note: 1841, same address as marriage)

CENSUS 1851: At 21 Rose Court, Bermondsey
Head: George HUNT 32, Labourer, b
Wife: Hannah HUNT 29,
Son: George 10
Dau: Caroline 4,
Son:  John 1

Looks like Susannah, preferred a pet form "Hannah"


CENSUS 1861: At 46 Gedling Street, Bermondsey
Head: George HUNT 42, Leather Dresser
Wife: Mrs HUNT 39, Stay Maker,
Dau: Caroline 14, Mantle Maker,
Son: Wm, 7, Scholar
Son: Alfred 6,
Son: Chas, 8months
ALL born Bermondsey

Note: George HUNT in 1871 Marriage said his father was a leather dresser.

CENSUS 1871: At 46 Gedling Street, Bermondsey (same as in 1861)
Head: Mr HUNT 52, Leather Dyer
Wife: Hannah HUNT 49,
Son: G HUNT 30, unm,  Labourer
Son: A HUNT 12, Labourer
Son:  C HUNT 10 Scholar
Dau: L HUNT 8,
ALL born Bermondsey

So the son George Richard HUNT is not in the family home in 1861 but is back there - unmarried - in 1871 (which ties in with him being about to marry Emily Harriett Austin).

So finding him in 1861 (was he in the Army for a short stint from about 1858, then out before 1871?) and 1881 (or was he in the Army at this time?).

His middle name, if he was in the Army and if he used the middle name, might be of use.

Cheers

The 'Mary' in my grandmother's name is unexplained, I can't see any related Powell with this name at this time.  Born 1859,

Louisa Powell's parents were Thomas POWELL [b.1798] and Charlotte WILLOUGHBY [bc.1800], perhaps the Mary name comes from this part of the family line?

She could have been given the middle name 'MARY' after Mary Elizabeth TOOMES who appears to be the sister of Louisa Powell born c1842

1861 census  Piece:   93 Folio:   164 Page Number:   29
John TOOMES   39 St George in the East, horse keeper
Mary Elizabeth Toomes wife 29 Southgate occ laundress
Louisa POWELL   19 sister in law Hampstead
Louisa Mary Powell   1 niece Hampstead

Mary Elizabeth POWELL Baptism 15 Jan 1832
Norwood Green St Mary the Virgin, Ealing, England
Father:   Thomas Powell Mother:   Charlotte

There is this marriage entry but after the 1861 census

Dec 1862 Pancras
John Edward TOOMES
Female name on same page
Mary Elizabeth POWELL

Mary Elizabeth POWELL married on 26 Nov 1862 at St Pancras Chapel, Camden
Father:   Thomas Powell dec'd
Spouse:   John Edward TOOMES occ coachman father same name dec'd

EDIT - Louisa Powell Jnr. surname transcribed as TOOMES on 1871c (original it's dittoed)

RG10; Piece: 190; Folio: 39; Page: 27
John E TOOMES   53 coach man
Mary E  "   38 Southall
Louisa M "   11 niece Hampstead

The 1861 "worldwide army index" lists 16 British Army soldiers named George Hunt.

Thank you. I did find a George Hunt soldier record recently, but it was the wrong family - he was from Uxbridge in Middlesex.

Btw, have now been able to look at the 1911 Census re. George HUNT x Emily [nee] AUSTIN marriage and it says there were no children.

Don't know if this relates to the above George Hunt a marriage on 10 January 1892 at St John Fitzroy Sq London

George HUNT 45 widow occ Pensioner 9 H(or?)land Street father George occ publican
Emily LANTZKE 36 widow 30 (H?)land Street father George GOLDRING (dec’d) Goldbeater
Witnesses William Bould?nt & Annie Goldring

Emily Goldring married John Frederick William Lantzke on 29 Dec 1878 at All Souls Church

EDIT

Opps  ::) I've just noticed years married (39) - so probably no connection to your George

Thanks Ladyhawk, it rings no bells. Is there no T/Y button for RootsChat please? :)

I don't thanks, but the dates for the Uxbridge soldier were too early.
