Hi there

I am looking records for Edwin Pitt (born 1859).  It appears he was born in Somerset.  The only information I have on his parents are that their names were Edward Pitt (father), and Phoebe (mother).  Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.

Thank you,
Evelyn

Hello,

What information do you have about Edwin in his later life?
There is an Edwin born and living in Bath in
1861 1686/76/22
with parents Edwin and Sarah.

This site https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp shows births indexes with motherís maiden name which is very useful

Is this Edwin's birth?

December qtr 1857
Wincanton Registration District     vol 5c, page 515

Pitt, Edwin George

And, from the GRO Indexes website:
    PITT, EDWIN  GEORGE      (Mother's Maiden Name:) COFFIN

Ignore that one - parents are Albert & Jane ???

OK looking family in Staffs-but that Edwin was a little older.

Thank you all for the replies so far. 

The birth date was 1859, but I believe that may have been an approximate.  As an adult, Edwin Pitt and his wife had 12 children between 1886 and 1908 (8 sons and 4 daughters).  His wife was Sarah Elizabeth Holmes, who was born in New Zealand (her parents were John Holmes and Harriet Anne Baker).  He died on the 13th of April 1922 in Christchurch, New Zealand.  I have no information on when he left England.

Hi Evelyn,
May I ask where you got the Somerset info?

Kind regards,

Hi Maureen,
I found the Somerset reference on Ancestry webpage.  They don't seem to have any evidence listed as to where that came from - but it is the only information I have to go on.

Thank you
