I'm trying to find the death record for George Henry William Dean. I know he was born on 15.5.1866 in Southampton, Hampshire and he married a Martha Miranda Haynes in 1899 in Faringdon, Berkshire. On the 1901 census they are living together in Little Coxwell, Berkshire but by the 1911 census Martha is listed as a widow. Their last child was born in 1906 so this narrows his death down to 1906 to 1911.
So far I have no luck finding a death record for him and would appreciate any help.
With thanks, Sarah

Would his occupation suggest he could have been out of the area

On the 1901 census his occupation is listed as a plumber and I seem to recall before that he was a dock labourer


GlitterBaby Report 31 Mar 2013 13:05

1901 occupation of plumber

The couple could have split

I presume you have checked out the George Dean on 1911 census

Probably not as he is on 1901 census with Caroline


Andrew Report 31 Mar 2013 13:08

There is a death in Plymouth in 1942 of correct age. She may be a widow in 1911 census to cover up that she and her husband had parted

Are you certain you are following the right person ?

Births Jun 1866 (>99%)

Dean George H W Southampton 2c 35


moonstar Report 31 Mar 2013 13:14

Hi, no I had seen the 1911 census for George HW Dean in Plymouth but like you say he is also there on 1901 with Caroline so probably not.
I have just seen on my nans notes that Martha remarried in 1912 to a William Brakespear if this helps.

GlitterBaby Report 31 Mar 2013 13:18

I think the name correction that has been done on Ancestry for 1901 is wrong and should have been left as George Dean


moonstar Report 31 Mar 2013 13:20

Entry deleted - conflicting info on my part


AnnCardiff Report 31 Mar 2013 13:20

I have Breakspears from Berkshire Sarah


GlitterBaby Report 31 Mar 2013 13:21

So are you researching the George that married Martha or George Henry William Dean that married Caroline ?


moonstar Report 31 Mar 2013 13:37

I'm going to dig out all the certificates and my nan notes I have again now and double check everything as can see what you are saying .....fingers crossed.


moonstar Report 10 Apr 2013 14:39

Bringing this one back to the front again now as my relative who had passed on previous info/research does seem to have notes in a bit of a mess and certain certificates missing etc. Wont make that mistake again! So if anyone could please help me now try and track the correct George Dean that would be great. Firstly is someone able to list the details of the 1901 census where George and Miranda are living together in Little Coxwell, Berkshire. Need to try and see where is states George was born.

I have now ordered the marriage certificate between George Dean and Martha Miranda Bishop. Dated 12.06.1899 - Farringdon. George is listed as George Dean only age 32, Bachelor, Plumber and father listed as a William Dean, Plumber - Deceased. So straight away this is a different father for George than I previously thought.
Martha is still correct , Martha Miranda Bishop, age 23, Widow, Father Mark Haynes.
The witnesses are listed as Frederick Haynes (Martha did have a brother called Frederick) and a Florence Payne. Not sure who Florence is at present. Martha did have a sister called Florence Haynes but name clearly states Payne.

Hope I have listed all....many thanks in advance Sarah :-S

Thankyou....thought it was Southampton but wanted to double check.

It's George Dean who I'm trying to trace (have Martha's line sorted)

Need to try and see if I can find George Dean listed on any of the census reports with his father William. Hopefully it should state William's occupation as a Plumber. Think Southampton and Berkshire are the place to try and start.
