Well I cant find John Atkinson marrying an elizabeth browell
Elizabeth is her first name on the 1881 census.
Esther 1899 is on the 1911 with them
And now we get a child with the middle name thompson?
Other peoples trees are not always up to scratch you know Sean,dont believe everything you read until you have checked it all out yourself.
Or rather we have

Okay, well, belatedly, here is my Friday fit of hilarity.

Well damned if I know!!

1901

John Atkinson 54
Esther Atkinson 36
Margaret Atkinson 28
John Atkinson 21
Francis Atkinson 19
William Atkinson 16
William Frank Boagy 16
Elizabeth Ann Atkinson 12
Mary Ann Atkinson 10
Esther Atkinson 2
Jane Browell Atkinson 3 Mo


Jane Browell Atkinson is likely the daughter of an unmarried daughter of John, I'd say. Browell would be her father's surname.

Are we positive that Esther is a child of John and Esther? There's a large gap between Mary Ann and Esther.

Or is Mary Ann a child of the first marriage, and Esther of the second ... ? No, they married 1888.

What???

Marriages Dec 1888
ATKINSON John Auckland 10a 296
BOAGEY Esther Auckland 10a 296


But here is the household in 1891!!!

John Atkinson 44
Mary Atkinson 30
Richard Atkinson 19
Margaret Atkinson 18
John Atkinson 11
William Atkinson 7
Frank Atkinson 7
Frances Atkinson 9
Elizabeth A Atkinson 3
Mary A Atkinson 11/12


That is obviously the same household.

What sense does this make??

I don't know why we're looking for this, but here it is:

Marriages Sep 1870
> ATKINSON John Auckland 10a 304
> BROWELL Elizabeth Auckland 10a 304
PARKIN Joseph Auckland 10a 304

Because on the 1881 census john atkinsons wife is elizabeth and jane 1901 has browell for a middle name.

EvieBeavie Report 9 Apr 2009 22:55

We do know that on the 1891 image, these two:

William Atkinson 7
Frank Atkinson 7

are identified as twins?

But both of them are *not* William Frank Boagey.

Then on the 1901 they look like this:

Francis Atkinson 19
William Atkinson 16
William Frank Boagy 16

Francis aged faster than William, it seems.

FannyByGaslight

FannyByGaslight Report 9 Apr 2009 23:07

Francis is actually a girl,so Frances
and as for ageing what about john atkinson senior
54 in 1881,44 in 1891and 54 in 1901.
the two williams are NOT twins as one is a boagey in 1901 even though frank is down instead of william in 1891 for him and he is also listed as atkinson them.

I will not be confused
I am pretty sure I have the right familys on the census,I spent ruddy AGES checking that I had.

Okay, this is nuts.

John Atkinson married

Elizabeth Browell 1870
Esther Boagey 1888

In between, he married Mary.

But there is no marriage 1870-1888 to a Mary.

Is Mary just Elizabeth by another name?


1881

John Atkinson 54 <<<< ????
Elizabeth Atkinson 32
Margaret Atkinson 9
Richard Atkinson 7
John Atkinson 2


These are the same people as in 1891 and 1901 -- the kids are the same.

But what's with John not aging in 20 years??

We shouldn't even be doing this -- since we know now that Sean's William Frank is a Boagey, not an Atkinson -- but good grief, what were these people doing??

FannyByGaslight Report 9 Apr 2009 23:13

Yes I kind of understood ,but Johns wife before Esther was ELIZABETH not MARY!
look at the 1881 census to see that
And the browell atkinson marriage Evie found.
