Help with finding a family
« on: Sunday 11 October 20 19:58 BST (UK) »
I have a birth certificate for Sarah Maria Dobinson born 8/4/1871.  Registrar's District Bethnal Green, Middlesex.  Father is Charles Dobinson.  Mother is Caroline Dobinson formerly Sprickett.  Father's occupation Button Maker.  X The mark of Caroline Dobinson mother 52 Camden Street, Bethnal Green, informant.

Have been unable to find family on 1871, 1881, 1891 census.

Not found a baptism or death for Sarah Maria, and no marriage between a Charles Dobinson and a Caroline Sprickett.

The birth is on GRO with the MMN of Sprickett.

Can any one find them?

Thanks

Delphia

Having said that, given that the census was taken on 2 April 1871 the baby shouldn’t have been recorded (as not yet born on census date). So: either she was wrongly included when the census form was returned after census day, or she was born earlier than her birth registration records.

What was the date of registration?

Sorry not got back before internet went down.

The birth certificate for Sarah Maria shows the 18th May 1871 for the registration.

Must confess did not think to look for other siblings on GRO.

Where do you have Charles or Caroline before 1871?

It looks like a complicated chronology after 1871.

1874: Caroline marries as “Catherine” Dobinson (dau of Joseph Dobinson) to Thomas Cowell.
1881: Thomas and Carry Cowell have Carry Cowell, 11, in their household.
1891: Thomas and Caroline Cowell again have Caroline Cowell, 21, with them.
1892: The younger Caroline marries, as Sarah Maria Cowell, to William Welfare.
1901 & later: She is recorded by the name of Caroline/Caraline Welfare.

Am I on the right lines?
Ayr: Barnes, Wylie
Caithness: MacGregor
Essex: Eldred (Pebmarsh)
Gloucs: Timbrell (Winchcomb)
Hants: Stares (Wickham)
Lincs: Maw, Jackson (Epworth, Belton)
London: Pierce
Suffolk: Markham (Framlingham)
Surrey: Gosling (Richmond)
Wilts: Matthews, Tarrant (Calne, Preshute)
Worcs: Milward (Redditch)
Yorks: Beaumont, Crook, Moore, Styring (Huddersfield); Middleton (Church Fenton); Exley, Gelder (High Hoyland); Barnes, Birchinall (Sheffield); Kenyon, Wood (Cumberworth/Denby Dale)
