David Report 26 Dec 2012 23:44

Hi all please may I ask for some assistance tracking down information on my 2x Great Grandfather Edward Stone?

I believe his father may have been Charles Stone (1816c) as they both lived at 177-178 Mousehole Lane, Millbrook, Southampton.

He was born 1845c in Winchester and died prior to the 1911 census in Shirley. In the 1911 census his wife Alice Stone was still alive as a widow with three (of five) daughters still living at 64 Pound Street, Shirley, Southampton.

Using the census results there was approximately 12-13 years between Edward & Alice. So I believe Alice to be born approximately 1858c.

He had five daughters all born in Southampton: Bessie Stone (c1879), Mary Stone (c1883), Ethel Stone (c1889), Caroline/Carrie Stone (c1895) and Rose Stone (c1901). Caroline Stone being my great grandmother.

I searched for a marriage record on Genes in the 1870’s before their first born and it returned a result for December 1874 in Shirley, Southampton. It said Edward married either a Sarah Jane Mills, Alice Gale or Edmund Powell. I checked this against familysearch.org and it gave the following results:

Alice Gale born 1853 married Edmund Powell 26/12/1874 - Parent Edward Gale
Edward William Stone born 1844 married Sarah Jane Mills 27/12/2012 - Parent Charles Stone
Is it possible familysearch.org just has a typo? All the names, age differences and Edwards’s father all seem to be very coincidental?

The only other marriage I can find is Edward Stone & Alice Stone - 7 Aug 1879 St. John's, Portland, Dorset, England but there are no other details.

Going back to my great grandmother Caroline Stone I have ordered what I believe to be her birth and death certificates:
1895 Mar S. Stoneham 2c 78
1950 Mar Southampton 6b 679

Thank you all in advance.

Kind Regards

David

Thank you Ann, your information confirms my suspicions that he was Edward William Stone. His grandson Edward John Stone had noted down his name was Edward John Stone and that he was in the Kings Royal Rifle Corps??

It would mean his mum is also likely to be Mary Ann Ligh/Light which I had noted down somewhere. Now to find out Edwards wife’s maiden name. I’m hoping it’s just a typo and I have found the correct marriage record.

Any more help would be much appreciated.

Thank you both for your help, it's looking very possible that he remarried.
Sarah Jane would have died when Bessie was aged just three. Would it be plausible that he re-married and had a another child with a Alice in just under a year though?

alviegal Report 27 Dec 2012 00:20

There was another Edward Stone, born Portland, Dorset, 1850 who married an Alice, so that is possibly the marriage that you found.

The only other marriage I can find is Edward Stone & Alice Stone - 7 Aug 1879 St. John's, Portland, Dorset, England but there are no other details.


Maybe your Edward and Alice did not marry. I think you need to wait until you receive Caroline's birth certificate.

David

David Report 27 Dec 2012 00:39

Thank you once again.

I believe they were married as Alice Stone was on my grandfathers (Caroline Stone's son) birth certificate. Also it stated married/widowed in each census and mentioned Edward was from Winchester and Alice was from Marchwood.

The certificates should be delivered imminently however I assume they have been held up due to the christmas post.

I did feel it was unusual he was still having kids at 56 but if he had re-married this would make more sense.

Thanks

David Report 1 Jan 2013 23:22

Hi all thank you for your help.

I have received Caroline deaths certificate today which has my grandfather Ronald Stone as the informant. It would put her birth as 1894 but the shocker is her name is listed as Carrie Waterhouse otherwise Caroline Stone.

I have put a link below to a scan of the certificate:
http://oi48.tinypic.com/5xlm3s.jpg

Of course the birth certificate I ordered is the incorrect one, but I can’t find a Caroline Stone or Carrie Waterhouse born in 1894. There is however a Caroline Stone born in 1892?

I also can’t find a marriage certificate, and everyone in the family is certain she never married. In the census records she is only referred to as Carrie in the 1901 census but as Carrie Stone. Is it possible she was adopted?

Thanks
:-)

Perhaps she was known as Carrie Waterhouse in later life. Did she live with a Mr Waterhouse possibly? Or maybe she had another reason to have an alias.

Thank you Alviegal I ordered the 1895 certificate as it seemed to be the closest match in age, and as her mother was Alice it seemed to match. I shall order the 1892 one however it would mean her age on her death certificate and the census results would be incorrect?

Also I checked with my Nan regarding Waterhouse and she seems to remember she had a boyfriend in her later years which may have been called Arthur Waterhouse. When the 1941 census gets released I will hopefully know!

There wasn't a census in 1941 due to WW2.


There was, however, the National Identity Card in 1939. Details from these are available now (for a fee of £42) relating to individuals who have died.
