Joseph Stevens - born circa 1796 & died 4 March 1849
« on: Tuesday 09 July 19 08:48 BST (UK) »
Joseph died aged 53 in Turton (Bolton, Lanc's) in 1849. He was born in Buckinghamshire. Trying to establish where and when he was born and who he married. I don't have access to 1841 England census. Had a son, William (born circa 1819 Bredlow, Buckinghamshire) William's wife was Charlotte Chisnall.

Thank you Rosie99 and Bucksboy for your help.
Bredlow should have read Bledlow (typo). The 1841 Census was spot on so it confirms that Martha was Joseph's wife. It seems they may have been in the poor house at the time.
On Williams marriage certificate Joseph's occupation was "baker". On his death certificate it was given as "labourer".
On the 1881 census William's place of birth was recorded as Buckingham. I don't think that the William born 30 Nov 1828 at Cheddington is correct because my William married in 1840! The marriage between Joseph Stevens and Martha Seabrooke at Cheddington in 1823 may be a red herring seeing that my William was born circa 1819 (died 1890 aged 71).
The baptism of Richard in 1829 at Bledlow may be the Richard on the 1841 census only because Joseph his father was shown as a baker.
Because the 1841 census doesn't show where residents were born it appears difficult to pin point where exactly Joseph was born, the maiden name of Martha and where they were married. Will keep looking.
