Hello Marcelle
This is probably a very long shot given the small amount of information I have.
I'm trying to find out anything about a William BUTCHER born c1788 in Bristol according to the 1851 and 61 censuses. He married an Elizabeth but as she came from Cripplegate and they were living in London during all censuses I would guess they also married there.
I can only find one possible on IGI (submitted) son of William Butcher and Charity Dando in Farrington Gurney - is that near enough to Bristol to class as being born in Bristol?
Many Thanks
Pam

There is a Maria from London living in Bristol in 1881,, unmarried which narrows down the time frame for them marrying

Hi Pam

I found one William Henry Butcher baptised 3.1.1794 @ St Stephen born 24/10/1792. Father William mother Elizabeth.

Farrington Gurney is a village situated in Bath and North East Somerset . The village lies on the junction of the A37 and A362 in Somerset.

St Stephen in bang in the middle of Bristol. I notice on the census it says Somerset, Bristol. I would ask some one to check baptisms for Somerset

Good luck, sorry not much help

Thanks for the information Marcelle - with so little to go on it was always a long shot. I'll make a note of it anyway, you never know it may fit in somewhere in the future

Hi Marcelle
Thomas Baker born about 1824 Bristol married Ann Verrinder (born Painswick Gloucs) in May 1839 in Middlesex. Unfortunately I know nothing more about him other than the fact he was a gardener - at least in every census from 1841 until 1891. They did have several children all born in Middlesex. (Thomas, Henry, Ann, George, Alfred, Arthur). If you are able to find anything that may link to him then great but I do understand the problem of 'popular' surnames.
regards
Charmian

Hi Marcelle

is there any possibility you could look on the Bristol baptisms for Samuel Neillie/Deane born 1834 Temple, mother was Mary Ann Neillie, any info would be great.

Thank you

Kim

Marcelle Report 10 Jul 2008 19:32

Hi Kim

not much on the discs for this family

I found

Ann Neillie Father Thomas Mother Mary baptised 24/12/1821 born 18/06/1816 @ St Mary Redcliffe

Elizabeth Neillie Father Thomas Mother Mary Ann baptised 11/06/1815 @ Temple

Mary Ann Neillie Father Thomas Mother May Ann baptised 25/04/1813 @ Temple

William Neillie Father Thomas Mother Mary baptised 2402/1821 @ St Mary Redcliffe

Checked for Samuel but nothing and also checked Deane

Do you have him on the census at all?

I will have another look for different spellings

Hello Marcelle

Many thanks for all your efforts.

This is the Thomas in question in 1861. Just spotted my typo making him 10 years younger than he actually was - sorry.

The two baptisms you have found for 1813 and 1815 certainly look promising. Have you any suggestions about how I might continue from here?
regards
Charmian

Marcelle

Marcelle Report 10 Jul 2008 20:27

The only thing I can suggest is that you get the marriage cert for Thomas & Ann Verrinder and check the occupation of Thomas's dad....Its a very long shot and going to cost the price of 2 certs. Thomas baptised 1815, his dad was a cordwainer and Thomas 1813 his dad was a farmer. It would mean hoping that they stayed in those jobs.

I really don't know Charmian and would hate for you to waste money on my advice. I know how you feel though. I have given up on my Annie Jones from Wales lol

Almondsbury is quite a way from St James

Maybe you could put a request on the board and see if others agree with getting the marriage cert.

Sorry, not much help

Thanks for the kind offer Marcelle.

Could you look for a Baptism of Thomas Arlett b 1818c
And possibly a Marriage between Thomas Arlett and an Elizabeth Crabb please.

Not sure which part sorry.

Marriage should have taken place 1835-37

Many thanks

Hi Marcelle

Thank you for the info

Yes I do have Samuel on the 1841 census as Neillie then by the 1851 Mary Ann has married George Deane (I think in Bristol) and Samuel adopted that surname for the rest of his life.
