Trying to find Bodycot

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Sheila Report 28 Feb 2005 21:33

Ann Bodycot born Leicester c1848 daughter of Charles Bodycot FWK. Married Joseph Goadby St Margarets Leicester December 22nd 1867. Three children Sarah Ann(1868) William (1871) Joseph (1873) Joseph senior died in 1877 and Ann subsequently remarried twice, possibly to a Mr Smith and a Mr Riley.

I cannot find Ann or the boys on the 1881 and 1891 Censuses. Sarah Ann is on the 1881, living with relatives by the name of Whitworth, but she is not on the 1891 or the 1901, even under her married name of Moir. The boys are both on the 1901.

She didn't go very far, but where did she go and where were William and Joseph Goadby?

All help gratefully appreciated.

Update - pleased to report that Annie and her boys have now been located, as well as her two subsequent marriages and the children of those marriages. Please contact me for further details, especially if you are descended from her son Arthur Smith (b Leeds c 1882) or her daughter Annie Riley (b Leicester c1885)
