Thanks to all who have helped on this one. Sadly think I'm going to have to leave this branch uncompleted as still cannot find any George Dean with his father William Dean 100% so cant take it any further.
Thanks again though

Ah just seen a Amelia Dean on the 1891 census - born 1832, Hampshire, residence 1891 Southampton, Hampshire.
Is anyone free to look this one up please?


moonstar Report 10 Apr 2013 23:32

I've gone through all the children's names listed above for the Fordingbridge on the 1861 and 1871 notes above and these are the only possibilities I can find:
William H Dean birth 1857 - South Stoneham (nothing under Stone)
Mary Ann Dean - no birth under Dean but a Mary Ann Stone 1859 - S Stoneham
George Dean - George Stone the same 2 listed above 1865 S Stoneham
Martha Dean -Martha Stone birth 1861 - S Stoneham (nothing under Dean)
Amelia - can't find under Dean or Stone
Kate - can't find under Dean or Stone

As Amelia and William didn't marry until 1866 the children go off been registered under mother's maiden name Stone but not that consistent for all.

Having trouble finding any of them on any future census reports especially Amelia and her husband William.

Any ideas please would be great.
Many thanks

Sorry only just been able to catch up with this, had to sign off in a hurry as my son's rabbit escaped down the road!!
Anyway thanks everso for all of this new information. Can certainly see your reasoning and like you say it would make sense why we cannot find birth matches.

Re. The 1871 Fordingbridge census, I noted that there was Mary who should show in 1861, so looked for the family

Name: Emelia Dean
Age: 27
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1834
Relation: Wife
Spouse's Name: William H Dean
Gender: Female
Where born: South Stoneham, Hampshire, England

They are all born South Stoneham ( an area of Southampton)
William is a House painter

Looking for a marriage to go with this, I was wondering about this one...

Marriages Dec 1866

DEAN William H ..S. Stoneham 2c 120
STONE Amelia .. S. Stoneham 2c 120

So.... could George and Mary at least have been registered STONE and that's why we couldn't find a good birth match?

Births Dec 1864

Stone George Henry ... S Stoneham 2c 60

Births Dec 1865

Stone George ... S. Stoneham 2c 44

Do you know of anyway to search for William Dean's death. I know we don't have a year but would the occupation be listed at all? Could only narrow it down between 1866 to 1899, possibly Farringdon or Southampton though so actually as i'm typing this, I'm thinking no.

Yes... I thought the same..........


moonstar Report 10 Apr 2013 17:07

Thank you. Yeah thinks its the same lady Kate/Catherine. I did have her pencilled in as George's Mother originally but her marriage on Freebmd is to a George Dean Dec 1863, Portsea and not a William Dean?

On Ancestry I can see 2 possible matches for a George Dean based on age and birthplace. Is anyone free to look these up for me and post details at all please?

1871 - George Dean - age 6 - estimated birth year 1865 - Southampton, Hampshire. Registration district Fordingbridge.

1871 census - George Dean - age 4 - estimated birth year 1867 - Southampton,. Registration district Portsea Island.

I cannot view so cannot see any parent details
Thank you


moonstar Report 10 Apr 2013 15:30

Looking at FreeBMD - I cannot find a birth for just a George Dean in Southampton for 1866/67. Still just the George HW Dean which does now seem to be a different man.


moonstar Report 10 Apr 2013 15:28

Gwyn in Kent....sorry thought it was listed in thread
Martha was married 3 times
1. Raymond Bishop 1895, Faringdon - 3 children. Raymond passed away.
2. George Dean - 1899, Faringdon, 4 children and by the 1911 census Martha lists herself as a widow so need to try and find a possible death record for George.
3. William Brakspear - 1812 - Faringdon - 3 children

So really just trying to track down George Dean, any records really

Many thanks, Sarah


moonstar Report 10 Apr 2013 15:12

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.
