I think that William is correct Catherine - that is the name of the grandfather on the 1861.

Looking at the two marriage records I think the first names on the London record should read the same as on the Pallots.

Hi, Thank you so much for your help but I need some more help.

Seeing as the man I am trying to find is connected to the people in this thread I thought I would just add it here.

George Chamberlain Born c.1830 London
Occupation: Glass Cutter

Married Roaslie Morgan 19th Jan 1851

Had two sons, George Thomas Chamberlain b.1852 d. 1918(He 'married' Annie Aikenhead) and William Chamberlain b.1854 who married Rebbeca Peterson in 1882

I just can't seem to find anything about George Chamberlain b. c.1830 apart from his married to Rosalie.

Any help would be much appreciated. :-)

Thanks.

Hello again BM - you're right to keep the latest request on here as some of the other info could come in useful.

BM - where did you get George's birth year as 1830?

I think it was off of familysearch.org but it was so long ago that I found him but couldn't get any further.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm guessing that Rebecca Walters is George snr wife in 1851.

Bearing in mind ages were rounded down to the nearest 5, George jnr could be up to 19 years old.

Thank you.

I am guessing that Rebecca Walters is a second wife to George Chamberlain snr?

And that William Chamberlain listed in the 1851 census is the son of Rebecca and George snr?

So would it be possible to find a first wife if there was one to George snr?

BM - are you a member of ancestry? There are a few trees on there that has this Chamberlain family.

If you're not then register with Mundia (an Ancestry spin-off). It's free and you can search and view public Ancestry trees and contact owners.
