I think I would possibly buy the John Burgess and Honora Lane marriage certificate...... It should give Honora's maiden name.

Hello Bill, did you get Bridget's maiden name from one of the children's birth certificates or another source?

Bridgewell

Bridgewell Report 20 May 2012 15:47

The Family were Catholic and I have checked at St.Mary's Chapel,St.Peter+St.Edwards Church and Westminster Cathedral, and found nothing about Bridgets family.
Many Thanks

Bill


you say Bridget Lane married Henry Mooney in 1882


Is that correct???


Because there is a Bridget and Henry Mooney on the 1871 Census?


1871 Census

Name: Bridget Mooney
Age: 20
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1851
Relation: Wife
Spouse's Name: Henry Mooney
Gender: Female
Where born: Westr, Middlesex, England
Civil parish: St John The Evangelist
Ecclesiastical parish: St Matthew
County/Island: London
Country: England
Registration district: St George Hanover Square
Sub-registration district: St John Westminster

Henry Mooney 24 b.ca 1847, Westminster, Middlesex, Labourer
Bridget Mooney 20
Henry Mooney 1 b.ca 1870, Westminster

Address:- 9 New Peter Street



same family in 1881 .................

1881 Census

Name: Bridget Mooney
Age: 30
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1851
Relation: Wife
Spouse's Name: Henry Mooney
Gender: Female
Where born: Westminster, Middlesex, England

Civil parish: St John the Evangelist
County/Island: London
Country: England

Street Address: 12 New Peter St
Condition as to marriage: Married

Occupation: Laundress

Registration district: St George Hanover Square
Sub-registration district: St John Westminster
ED, institution, or vessel: 10

Henry Mooney 34 b.ca 1847, Westminster, Middlesex, Accoutrement Maker (unemployed)
Bridget Mooney 30
Henry C. Mooney 11
Peter Mooney 9
Mary Mooney 7
James Mooney 4
Ellen Mooney 1



In 1891, Henry's occupation was "Army Recruiting"

In 1901, he was a "Harness Maker"

and in 1911 an "Army Accoutrement Maker"


1911 Census

Name: Henry Mooney
Age in 1911: 65
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1846
Relation to Head: Head
Gender: Male
Birth Place: Minster <<<<<<<<<<<<<< I think this means Westminster
Civil parish: St Margaret and St John
County/Island: London
Country: England
Street Address: 44 Tufton St, Westminster
Marital Status: Married
Occupation: ARMY ACCOUTREMENT MAKER
Registration district: St George, Hanover Square
Registration District Number: 5
Sub-registration district: St Margaret and St John

Henry Mooney 65
Bridget Mooney 60 b.ca 1851, Minster
Annie Mooney 23
Norah Mooney 17


Married 40 years

Had 9 children, 1 died




so it looks as though they got married a number of years after they first started living together.



Unfortunately, the family seems to be Catholic, and there are few records from Catholic churches on the internet.
