Gins Report 10 Nov 2012 13:41

I think youre going to need a childs birth certificate

Where are they in 1871 and when does Robert die please?


Jan Report 10 Nov 2012 13:24

no, I dont have any certificates, Jessie Dickenson was my paternal grt grt gandmother. I have info on her daughter Ellen Charlotte Hucks plus living memory. The GR tree I matched with was a branch from Jessies sister Elizabeth, she married a Charles Pudney and the surname Parish came from living memory from them.....

Have you got her certificate to check the mothers name?

Births Jun 1861
DICKINSON Jessenine Pancras 1b 163


England & Wales, FreeBMD Birth Index, 1837-1915

Jan Report 10 Nov 2012 12:57 goes.. I ha ve the following records so far

Jessie Dickinson father Robert Dickinson (from marriage details) actually seem to be Dickenson in earlier records and other family members. Tree downwards is fine but going back is more difficult.

Robert Dickenson married a Charlotte possibly Parish ...thanks to another GR member match although I can't trace a marriage record.

Charlotte is on the 1841 census with a sister Sarah living with Ann and Thomas Deacon but don't seem to be able to link them as a family/aunt etc

Jessie Dickinson
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1861
Age: 19
Spouse Name: Richard Hucks
Spouse Age: 24
Record Type: Marriage
Event Date: 11 Apr 1880
Parish: Camberwell Emmanuel
Borough: Southwark
Father Name: Robert Dickinson
Spouse Father Name: Richard H E Hucks

1861 Census
Robert Dickenson 36 born 1925 St Lukes Middx
Charlotte Dickenson 25 born 1836 St Pancras
Elizabeth Dickenson 4
Emma Dickenson 3
Jesse Dickenson 4 Months

cannot find parents for Robert or marriage to Charlotte

Charlotte MAYBE a Parish if so this could be her (born in St Pancras about 1835) on 1841 Census in Islington

Thomas Deacon 25
Ann Deacon 30
Charlotte Parish 6
Sarah Parish 10

Thomas is a baker and I can find him on other census returns but no links to Parish or Austing (which I shall explain in a bit)

and in 1851

Name: Sarah Parish
Age: 42
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1809
Relation: Head
Gender: F (Female)
Where born: St Luke, Middlesex, England
Civil parish: St Pancras
County/Island: Middlesex
Country: England
Registration district: Pancras
Sub-registration district: Somers Town

Sarah Parish 42
Sarah Parish 19
Charlotte Parish 16
Harriett Parish 10

there seem to be a few trees out there with incorrect info believing her to be Charlotte Cordelia Parish but the baptism records give that mother as Charlotte not Sarah as well as other inconsistancies....

Chatlotte's mother is Sarah Parish but never find her with a husband...

I found a possible match for her on a later census listed as a sister of Jemima Wilkerson (when digging found she was Jemima Austing father Edward)

But no records out there to confirm if Edward had a Sarah or Sarah is Jemima's siser or if thecensus I found is even the right Sarah Parish....but you know how we follow hunches lolol

Name: Sarah Parish
Age: 64
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1807
Relation: Visitor
Gender: Female
Where born: St Luke, Middlesex, England
Civil parish: Islington All Saints
Ecclesiastical parish: All Saints
County/Island: London
Country: England
Registration district: Islington
Sub-registration district: Islington West
Name Age
Jemima Wilkerson 48
Thomas Wilkerson 25
Sarah Parish 64
William Wilkerson 21

so....if anyone out there with access to anything but ancestry or with ancestry that can find stuff I cant....what I am after is Charlottes marriage to Robert Dickenson...confirmation she was a Parish....and to discover if Sarah Parish was Sarah Austing : D not much to ask I know......

Thanking people in anticipation..ask if I have left out anything I should have included
