Hello I'm trying to find details of GGG Grandfather Edward Liddiard around 1800. Berkshire/Wilkshire. Been looking for proof that he lost his first wife Mary and remarried a Sarah, hence he had two sets of children.
My GG Grandfather being Henry born Hungerford 1823.

This looks like the marriage of Henry & Leah in the 1841:

BARRET George Hungerford 6 257
LIDDIARD Henry Hungerford 6 257

but a tree on Ancestry has that Henry as dying in a shipwreck in 1851

Flip Report 23 Mar 2013 11:09

Could this be Henry's marriage to Phillis - she was born Herts according to the 1861 census posted earlier:

Henry Liddiard
Age: Full Age
Spouse Name: Phillis Ashby
Record Type: Marriage
Event Date: 12 Jun 1854
Parish: St Andrew by the Wardrobe
Borough: City of London
Father Name: Edward Liddiard
Spouse Father Name: William Ashby
Register Type: Parish Register

I think he was a corn merchant, but image is not very good. But the date ties in well with their oldest child from the census


Potty Report 23 Mar 2013 11:41

Looks like Corn Merchant to me; father Edward is Seedsman.


Flip Report 23 Mar 2013 12:06

Looks like 2 Henry's christened around the right time, this one could be your Henry:

Henry Liddiard
Gender: Male
Christening Date: 20 Aug 1826
Christening Place: Aldbourne, Wiltshire, England
Father's Name: Edward Liddiard
Mother's name: Mary

The other one christened in Nov, father James, mother Anne. It could be his marriage to Leah and subsequent death in a shipwreck.

Really need some feedback from Colin to know if we have the right Henry.

Added: Forget this, I've just noticed it is Wiltshire, not Berkshire - think I'm cracking up :-0

Thank you all for responses.

KathleenBell & Pam, Some very intesting infomation,I need to it check out!
Mel Fairy Godmother - On Edward looks as if it could correct.
Flip - You are correct, can I help you in anyway? Interesting about lost at sea!
When information is check out, It imay be now possible to go further in my search.
Thank again, Colin


Flip Report 23 Mar 2013 14:45

Hi Colin, welcome back to your thread, thought you'd got lost ;-)

So, is the marriage & christening for Henry the right one? What about the 1841 census - do you think that is possibly the right Edward?


Flip Report 23 Mar 2013 14:56

If 1841 is correct, then Ann (or Mary Ann) has died by 1851 and Edward is with Harriett as posted earlier. If you notice, one child on that census is Albert and Harriett is with him after Edward's death as his step-mother:

Harriet Liddiard
Age: 76

Hi Flip, Have received recent message sent to you?
Regarding the wedding to Jessett Harriet,is there date for it?



KathleenBell Report 23 Mar 2013 15:40

The Harriet Jessett and Edward Liddiard marriage is in the June quarter of 1849 (so sometime in April, May or June).

Flip Report 23 Mar 2013 15:42

Yes, I received your message, but it's best to keep to the thread so others may be able to help - we all have different subscriptions and knowledge of different records - so something I miss may be picked up by others.

You think Henry's mother may have been Mary Ann or Marianne - but I'm not finding anything on this in the records on familysearch or ancestry.

There's no date for the marriage to Harriet, it was from freebmd which just records the quarter/year, and doesn't give their maritial status or ages at time of marriage. The only way to verify if it is correct is to order the marriage certificate from GRO
