Michael, you say above "Emma and Peter married in 1833 "Emma and Peter married in 1833" - should that be Charlotte and Peter?


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 12:39

Thanks - I discovered that Hannah Wightman (different spelling) Stone from that family eventaully married Richard Garland a widower with several children in 1860 4th Q Bridport


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 12:39

Soory yes - my fault. Charlotte and Peter.


Reggie Report 2 Mar 2013 12:41

Are you not going to comment on the info about the Stone/Fooks marriage........and all the Stone baptisms?


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 12:46

I think that three of the stone children were probably triplets. They are all listed as 10 yrs in the 1841 census, and that includes Daniel Joseph Stone, Elaine and Mary his sisters.


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 12:48

Reggie - many thanks - I am sorry if I am unablbe to keep up with the pace of information which is coming my way. I will have to go over all of this later and analyse it . I am very grateful for all your help.


Reggie Report 2 Mar 2013 12:50

The marriage was posted at 12:11


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 12:54

Thanks Marie Celeste - that last bit about the name Wightman could be very useful. I had thought that there was a link there because of themiddle name.


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 12:56

Reggie - I am not a fast typist - I apologise for that. I am grateful for your help. As I said , I will go over all of it from the printout later and do some careful analysis of what has been gevin to me.,


Dea Report 2 Mar 2013 12:57

Michael - ages on 1841 census were usually rounded down to the nearest 5 years so the 3 children marked as aged 10 could each be of different ages i.e. 10 or over but not yet 15 !

Reggie Report 2 Mar 2013 12:59

The rounding-down in 1841 was supposed to be for the over-15's


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 13:01

Dea - now that I did not know. I presume that practice ended after 1841? I was surprised to find tham all listed as the same age I must admit. Thank you.


Michael Report 2 Mar 2013 13:07

Thank you to all those who have helped with this thread. I have to leave the computer at this time. If there are further comments I will answer them if I can when I next log in.


Dea Report 2 Mar 2013 13:12

Yes Reggie - It was 'supposed' to be for the over 15's but not all the enumerators seem to have understood that because I very often find that they have done the same to the children ;-)

However, having looked at the image, I note that he hasn't rounded down the ages of the other children so the 10 years on these children is probably correct and Daniel and Mary may well be twins? - I have no idea where Michael got 'Elaine' from though as she does not appear !!! :-S

Robert Fooks married Charlotte Stone in Burton Bradstock 16/2/1808.Witnessed by John Fooks and Ann Stone.(Ann Stone baptised 1791 (Charlottes sister maybe married Thomas Bunn)

Thomas Stone Fooks born 1811 parents were Robert and Charlotte.
Thomas was brother to Charles and Charlotte.

Robert Hallett born 1835 son of Charlotte and Peter was at the home of Thomas Stone Fooks 1861 or 1851 census

Thomas Stone Fooks married 23/3/1842 to Frances Neale,he them married Jane Keech in 1848.

Charlotte Stone baptised Burton Bradstock by Thomas and Ann Stone

Daniel Joseph Stone born 10/8/1830 to Joseph and Hannah Stone.
Joseph Stone baptised 12/9/1784 in Burton Bradstock by Thomas and Ann Stone

Thomas Stone married Ann Gundry 30/12/1781 in Burton Bradstock.

The 1810 baptism in Whitchurch Canonicorum that's been attributed to Charlotte may be incorrect. She married in 1833:

Dorset, England, Marriages and Banns, 1813-1921
Name: Charlotte Fooks
Marriage or Bann Date: 12 Feb 1833
Parish: Burton Bradstock
Spouse's Name: Peter Hallett

The witnesses were Thomas Fooks and Mary Hallett.

On the original register it states they were married "with consent of parents" (that part hasn't been filled in on other marriages). Now, if she was born 1810 then she would be 23 and I would guess wouldn't need parental consent?

Also, her birthplace on census is Symondsbury, I know the two parishes are only 5 miles apart but I'm not sure now about that baptism.

MarieCeleste Report 2 Mar 2013 18:13

That looks a much better fit Mary - where did you find it?

There are a lot of trees on Ancestry have opted for that 1810 baptism (or have copied it from each other)
