Unknown Report 2 Mar 2013 09:14

I am researching a John Stuart who married Ann Marks in Twyford, Hampshire in 1822 and fathered Edmund, George and William. He was noted as a coachman / servant working for G Ward Esq of Shawford House, Twyford. Old family notes suggest he served in the Scots Greys (proximity of Twyford to Portsmouth may strengthen that re Waterloo etc) but I can find no records whatsoever of a death, birth or service. I presume he was born around 1780-90.

He must have died between 1825 and 1841.

Deaths Mar 1855 (>99%)
Marks John Winchester 2c 15

Deaths Sep 1878 (>99%)
Rudd Olive 92 Winchester 2c 71

Don't see Ann's death, which I would guess would also be Winchester.

Thanks for both those additions - yes, frustrating to have some information on some of the family but none on my 3G Grandfather!

A late addition to this thread, although not a very helpful one!:

Although John's place of residence is given as Twyford at the time of his marriage - on this list:

and although you have found a record of his working in Twyford, he does not appear to have been born in Twyford, according to this:.

According to the baptism list above, Ann Marks was baptised on 21/09/1789, and her parents were Will and Leana.

Still no help re John, though. Sorry!

Thank you very much for that link - reinforces the Marks connections but no Stuarts!
