Trabina Smith
« on: Wednesday 20 October 21 17:26 BST (UK) »
I've been trying to find something - anything! - about Trabina Smith. The only record I can find of her is on the 1911 census where she is described as mother to the head of the house and a widow. The head is Job Smith, born about 1886 in Tenbury.  Trabina was born in 1864 but her birthplace is not known. They were part of a big Romany family around Tenbury and the Forest Of Dean and were living on Dean's Common in 1911. Job's children at the time were Enos, 1906, Esther, 1908 and Caroline, 1910. His siblings at that time were Jeremiah, 1872, Timothy, 1875, Brookie, 1876 and Thomas, 1879 which means something is very wrong somewhere when you look at Trabina's age! The census also lists assorted cousins and uncles. It took a bit of deciphering. I had Job's possible parents as Enos or Nathaniel Smith and Eliza Loveridge but I'm not sure about this now. I need to find Trabina's husband to stop me going round in circles so I'd be glad of any ideas, please.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X715-2HM  (1911 for any one who wants it)

Does the original CLEARLY say Trabina? I've seen a few Tryphena & similars

She is transcribed as Trahina on one site but the b and h are similar.

Hi,
There is a Loverage family in Lincomb, Hartlebury, Worcs., in 1871
It includes a "Treenut" Loverage aged 8 born Forest of Dean, Gloster.
They are travelling tinkers and close to a family of travelling gipsies.

That was quick, thank you all. I'm fairly sure it's not Tryphena. It's certainly a "b" or an "h" on the 1911. I found that birth for Job but then got confused when Trabina is described as his mother on the 1911. I can't find a Smith/Loverage marriage.  Interesting about Treenut, I'll have a look at that now.
