Thomas Gould BEVINGTON/ Ann Gould BEVINGTON.
« on: Wednesday 03 February 21 11:00 GMT (UK) »
I'm new to Rootschat so please bear with me. I've traced Thomas Gould Bevington through Census 1841 to 1871 to his death in 1875 aged 68. He stated his birth place as St. Martins, Worcester. (c1808) but no trace. He married (Sarah Field) in 1831 (Weston Subedge, Glos.) and the witness was an Ann Gould Bevington, and no trace of her at all.  Any ideas anyone, please. Thanks. Mike.

Ann BEVINGTON, widow, married William GOULD, widower, in 1836 at Weston Subedge.  Witnesses were Thomas Gould BEVINGTON and Sarah Gould BEVINGTON.  They all made their mark so it is not possible to compare signatures.

If she is the Ann with husband William in 1841 at Weston Subedge then she was born late 1790s and not old enough to be Thomas's mother.  Sister in law perhaps?

1841 census

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M7M3-RDS

It appears that Joshua and Alfred are William's children, and Isabella and John are Ann's childen.  the indexed entry for Caroline's birth has no mother's maiden name so gives the appearance of being illegitimate.  She was baptised as their daughter in 1837 so perhaps with the multiple surnames involved the wording is incorrect and the GRO may not have been able to ascertain which was the maiden name.  The cert would have to be seen to confirm.

Isabella BEVINGTON
Event Type:    Baptism
Baptism Date:    17 Oct 1824
Baptism Place:    Weston Subedge, Gloucestershire, England

Father:    John BEVINGTON
Mother:    Ann BEVINGTON

Wow, the information received is solid gold, thankyou very much. I have been hunting these folk for a long time and you have given me hope of cracking the case. Well done, most grateful. Mike.
