Mother of Margaret F Rowland.
« on: Friday 24 January 20 20:31 GMT (UK) »
Margaret is on the 1881 census in a caravan at Crumbles,Eastbourne,parents are Joseph Rowland and Mary Ann b1857 Biddenden.
Subsequent census shows she had at least 2 siblings.Joseph b1882 Eastbourne and Absalom b1883 Eastbourne.
I can find no marriage for Joseph to a Mary Ann.Ive also checked the GRO index in the hope of finding a mmn,but cant see any of the births there.
Any help in finding who Mary Ann is would me much appreciated.

Thanks.

For those looking, Margaret was 4mo old in the 1881 census and said to have been born in Tunbridge Wells.

Are you sure Joseph and Absalom are separate brothers? They donít appear together - in 1891 the family has one son, 8yr old Absalom, and in 1901 the 19yr old Joseph.  They might be the same person using different names.

Have you looked in censuses pre-1881 for a Mary Ann of the right age born in Biddenden?

Thanks for the reply.Im not certain they are separate brothers as I haven't found them together.Ive looked for Marys born Biddenden around that time on previous census,but cant see anything that fits.
