Another problem Robert Tubbs!
« on: Tuesday 06 August 19 16:37 BST (UK) »
In January 1837 Robert Tubbs married Sarah Bond in St Nicholas Yarmouth. In February they baptised a son Robert Chase Tubs (sic), The father's name was also given as Robert Chase Tubs, a mariner. In 1840 Robert (described as a seaman this time) and Sarah baptised another son, Frederick Chase Tubbs.
Then they all disappear, no census records or death records for Sarah or Robert and I can only find birth records for their sons.
I'm sure Robert must be the son of Robert Tubbs and Mary Chase in my previous posting https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=816817.0 but I've got no evidence.

Does anyone have any ideas? If Robert was a mariner he was probably at sea during the census, but I can't find Sarah and their sons either.

Bit of a long shot but this could be worth a look -

Robert Chase   39 b. Devonport
Sarah Chase   38 b. Yarmouth
Frederick Chase   11 b. Yarmouth
HO107 Piece 1562 Folio 326 Page 24, Bermondsey

On the above Frederick's marriage cert his father is recorded as Robert Chase (dec) Mariner.

Thanks JJ that's certainly a possibilty, I can't find the record though, which year's census was it, 1851?
I've never been able to work out how to find the census records in the way you've given it, where should I look?

Sarah Chase 25
Alfred 7
Frederic 1
All not born in county
With others at West Street, Bermondsey

Ahh yes, I've found them on Ancestry-Robert was a warehouseman in 1851, it's certainly possible they are the same family.
And Sarah on her own with the children might be because Robert was at sea in 1841.
Alfred would have been born before they married unless the age is wrong which it often was in 1841.
Hmm-I wonder if it's them- why would they drop the name Tubbs?

FreeBMD has a death for Alfred Chase in 1847 in Bermondsey, possibly the same Alfred?
