Martin GILES of North Aston
« on: Saturday 03 December 22 20:58 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to sort out two Martin Giles born about 1797 They are cousins both grand sons of my 5x gt grandparents.
Both are on the 1851 census:
HO107/1730 fo416 p19 ed: Woodstock, Deddington 12a
p: Kidlington, EccD: , cb: , t: , v: Kidlington
sch: 85
Martin GILES Head Mar 54 Ag Lab Oxford Kidlington


HO107/1730 fo162 p5 ed: Woodstock Deddington 10
pt: North Aston, EccD: , cb: , t: , v: North Aston
sch:18 Village
Martin GILES Head Mar 52 Coal Merchant Oxon Hampton Poel

The one died in 1878 his wife had pre deceased him in 1876 they are both buried in Kidlington.
The second's wife is on the 1861 census still in North Aston now a widow but I have failed to find a death or burial for him between 1851 and 1861.
Please can anyone help find him ?..the last I can fnd is an entry in the "History, Gazetteer & Directory of Oxfordshire 1852"

When daughter Elizabeth marries in 1856, her father is named, occupation boatman - so perhaps he could have died elsewhere? The way this vicar records fathers in the register suggests Martin is still alive, as on the next page under father's name for quite a few entries it just says deceased

Shipping coal about on a canal boat ?

it's the right marriage. Martin's widow is with Elizabeth and Joseph Lewis, the spouse from that marriage, in 1861

1878 aged 81 - 1797
1903 aged 59 - 1844
1906 aged 82 - 1824

The most relevant death
1878 aged 81 - 1797
 was for one buried in Kidlington the register reads:
1878 Jan 4   GILES   Martin   81   Woodstock Union   WB

I have taken this as the one on the 1871 census in Kidlington
"Martin GILES 74 an Ag Lab from Kidlington was with his wife Rosa 71."

So although the widow of the other one, Magaret, was still in North Aston in 1861 and 1871 and she was buried there in 1874, her Martin does not appear in the parish burial register. He was a coal merchant in 1851 and in the trade directonary in 1852 and as pointed ot a boatman in 1856
So where did he die between 1856 and 1861, Margaret was a widow with her daughter and son in lawin 1861.
The stretch of the Oxford Canal between Banbury and Tackley forms the eastern boundary of North Aston parish. So if he was transporting coal by boat it may be worth considering places along the Oxford canal does the whole area fall into the Woodstock registration district?
The Daughter was born in Upper Heyford another plac on the canal!
