Ann Mumford - Balsall/Kineton
« on: Wednesday 11 May 22 22:21 BST (UK) »
Hi everyone

Ann Lowe (nee Mumford) (abt 1822-1870) married Joseph Lowe at Kenilworth in October 1850. Her father is listed on the marriage certificate as ‘William Mumford’, her profession is a servant and residence is also Kenilworth.

Ancestry suggests that Ann Mumford maybe ‘Mary Ann Mumford’, parents William and Ann, baptised in Kineton in 1823 (there is an ‘Ann Mumford’ listed in the 1841 census for Kineton). However, in both the 1851 and 1861 census her birthplace is listed as ‘Balsall’ (the same as her husband (who was born in nearby Honiley)). I’m not sure if this is incorrectly recorded, or Ann was born in or around Balsall. It may be worth noting that Balsall Common is quite far away from Kineton (about 20 miles).

All I can say for sure is that her dad was a ‘William Mumford’ but I have no idea where Ann may have been born, or who her mother is. I would appreciate any information that anyone may come across, as I’ve been stuck here for around a year.

Many thanks!

There's a William and Mary Mumford baptising children in Balsall in the 1820s and 30s. Not found an Ann, though. He's a farmer. They live in Hampton In Arden

Ancestry suggests that Ann Mumford maybe ‘Mary Ann Mumford’, parents William and Ann, baptised in Kineton in 1823


For info on the above 1823 baptism her father William’s  occupation is a Miller there’s a marriage in 1850 for Mary Ann Mumford to Charles Wilcox her father William’s occupation is a Miller


All I can say for sure is that her dad was a ‘William Mumford’


What is her fathers occupation on her marriage certificate.


William’s occupation is a labourer


there is an ‘Ann Mumford’ listed in the 1841 census for Kineton


There are another two Ann Mumford’s born c1826 in Warwickshire on 1841 census both have occ F.S (female servant)

Bear Lane, Harborne, Kings Norton, Staffordshire & Warwickshire and Wellesbourne Hastings, Stratford on Avon, Warwickshire

I had a look at William and Mary as they certainly fit the dates and location. Sadly trawling through baptisms for Hampton In Arden, I didn't find any Mumford's before Sarah. Most of the Mumford children appear to have stayed with their parents into adulthood, making Ann an anomaly.

That's excellent - I think we can safely exclude the Mumford's from Kineton. A step closer!

Yes William is listed as a labourer.

I think I've seen both Ann Mumford's in the 1841 census - If I remember correctly, one was in Coventry and one was in Warwick. Unfortunately, I don't think either record tells us much, considering they are both servants, though Coventry seems most likely (based on proximity).

The above William appears to be buried 27 Aug 1844 age 64 (FreeREG)
