Clara Woodward (b 1872???)
« on: Tuesday 01 December 20 21:43 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

I have just started looking into my family history and have found a relative that appears to be my 2nd great grandmother. Her name is Clara Keetley,nee Woodward, born about 1871/72. She married Joseph Keetley in 1893, which appears to be not long after she left the York Street workhouse(??) and died in 1940. This is about all I have found,apart  from 3 children.

I can't find any information on her parents or on any census or the 1939 register.

Any information would be great, many thanks

Clara is findable on 1939 on Ancestry - can;t post details

I think this marriage is a very strong possibility for Clara's parents

I can't find them in 1881

But this seems to add up (of course Clara's marriage cert would help with father's name

Marriage
30 May 1853 Tewksbury
William Henry Woodward 24 Bachelor labourer Barton St father Robert Woodward Stocking Maker
Ann Halling 21 Spinster Stocking Maker Gravel Walk father Charles Halling Sail? maker
Bride and Groom both made their mark

Witnesses Charles Halling  & Samuel l Moore both signed

on the Banns notice Ann's surname has been entered as Hawking or hawling

1861
16 Cambridge St St Ann Nottingham
William Woodward Head M 32 Brickmaker
Ann wife 30 Seamer of Hose
Richard son10
Henry son 7
all dittoed as b Nottingham (which I believe  is  a mistake )
coincidence?
17 Cambridge St
Joseph Keetley Head M 24 Bricklayer
Elizawife 24 Lace Runner
RG9 2458 88 16

1871
3 Barley Court St Ann Nottingham
William Henry Woodward Head M 40 Bricklayer lab Tewksbury Gloucester
Ann wife 38
Samuel son 11
Mary Ann daughter 15 works at factory
Rose daughter 13 employed at lace works
William son 11
Elizabeth daughter 9
Ann daughter 6
Charles son 3 Nottingham
all except Charles were born Tewksbury

tried to find Charles in 1881 -could only find him in 1891 -he was a boarder with Rose Mann (who I believe to be his married sister

All surname Woodward - all b Tewksbury but from Charles onwards - b Notts

William 63 b Gen labourer
Ann 60 b
Elizabeth 25
Ann 20
Charles 18 b Notts
Clara ? 14 b Notts
Ellen ?? B Notts

Ellen's age looks like 14
There is a birth reg Jun qtr 1870 Nottingham for Ellen Woodward mother's maiden name Hallings
I cannot find this Ellen on 1871 census
there is a death reg Sept qtr Nottingham Ellen Woodward age 0
so maybe they had another Ellen - so confusing with ages etc

Thank you guys, hopefully I will be able to find out more info.It was the not being able to find her on the 1881 census that confused me, it was like she just disappeared.

Does anyone know if there is a way to find workhouse records? Out of all the relatives we have traced Clara is the one I keep going back to, probably because I know next to nothing of her
