Howard James Hemming
« on: Wednesday 01 January 20 06:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi everyone,

I am trying to find a family connection for Howard James Hemming(s) b.Dec 1868, bapt 1 Jan 1869 Burford, Oxfordshire.

My 5xgt grandparents William Long (1737 Hanborough) and Ann Edgington had son Stephen (1781 Hanborough) m. Elizabeth Horn. Their son George Long (1810 Hanborough) m Charlotte Slatter Lay (her parents William Slatter Lay and Jane Archer (Jane of ?Burford).

On the 1881 census Hanborough, Charlotte is a widow and has Howard age 12yrs - nephew - living with her. On the GRO Index, his mother's maiden name was Bunting. The only Bunting I could find married to a Hemming/s was Mary Ann b.19 Mar 1834 Burford - parents James Bunting and Sarah Watts. Mary Ann died Feb 1870 (3A 530) and buried 24 Feb 1870 - age 36yrs in Burford.

She was married to William Hemming/s on 24 July 1867 at Fulbrook, Oxfordshire.

I found Howard on an 1871 census for Burford at No.9 Priory Lane - age 2yrs - a boarder - with a James Burden, wife Susan and their family.

I can't for the life of me find how Howard was a nephew of Charlotte Long nee Slatter Lay and am hoping someone may be able to help me sort this out or at least point me in the right direction, please. I've had a lot of trouble trying to find siblings for Charlotte so haven't bee able to cross match with those.

I would be really appreciative of any assistance whatsoever you may offer as I'm truly stuck.

Keep in mind that relationships on census were not accurate.I think the marriage you have found is likely correct,you need to trace William after Mary Ann's death.Tree on Ancestry shows Charlotte's brother as William b 1818.

I haven't done any research on the family yet, but this article may help?

This may be a complete red herring but in 1871 a William Hemming, 33, widowed,  born Burford, is living with his mother, Susannah, in Burford. Included in the household is Ann Slatter,  48, servant. Both Susannah and Ann are born Church Handborough. (Taken from Family Search 1871 - sorry, I cannot give you the reference)

PS  William - engineer in iron works in 1871.

1841 - family includes sister Fanny

William Hemming, son of William and Susannah, baptised  24 Dec 1837, Fulbrook.
