Anthony Report 7 Sep 2010 19:02

My 3x grandfather b.1866 in Caldicot and died 1915 at Luton appeared twice in the 1901 census, at home and also at a lodging house with a woman and child described as his wife and son?? In the 1911 census he appears yet again with another woman described as his wife of five years?? Although these women had adopted his surname there is no record of any marriages though. He died in 1915 but I cannot find any reference of a will in the national probate calendar. If there is no reference there, does that categorically mean there was no will or letter of administration that may help to identify these ladies?

I am afraid that it probably does. Mind you with all that apparent womanising he may not have had much to leave any way.

Have you seen his death certificate to see if whoever registered his death might give you any clues.

If you could find a baby Orlando registered about that time,(b. Brixton ) you may find his mother's name.

Hello Guys

Sorry but just got off the phone. Yes all posts relate to him. His true wife was Mary Annette Soller. His Death cert shows the inofrmant as M .Hodges??? There is a child named Orlando about that time but does not fit. You could be right Jonesey, albeit it his true wife seems to have bought a house in Catford at the time of his death. Found an obituary but it does not mention details of family etc. Thanks for all your suggestions.

When I thought things couldn't get worse with this man, I discover a court attendance at Stratford Police Court reported in Reynolds newspaper 03/01/1892 where a single woman Martha Reeves brought a case against Orlando Powell; professor of music, for financial support for their illigimate child. Seemingly she was allegedly residing with her sister in Leyton. There is a Martha E Reeve on both the 1891 and 1901 census residing with her mother Jane E Reeve in Leyton, but no reference to a child of hers. Any ideas please how one can confirm the identity of this woman and her child.

This looks like the Orlando born in 1901 although there is no other person with this surname or is it seen again??

Hi Jax

Have looked at that 1901 Orlando Bellueci before and not really been able to link him. The latest child dates back to 1892.

HI Jax and Choccy

I had noticed the granddaughter Alice Tong myself and wondered whose child she was, but the info Choccy turned up re Jane Elizabeth Reeve being Tong's wife answers that, thank you. The piece in the Reynolds newspaper suggested that in 1892 Martha was living in Leyton; also in the 1901 with her mother and a few adult siblings

If the Child was born after the 1891 census it could have sadly died by 1901??

That Orlando born 1901 still interests me, as he is the only one I can see being born in the right area right time

Anthony Report 8 Jan 2011 19:10

Hello Jax

Yes I realise that there was a possibility of the child dying, but according to the piece in the newspaper Martha Reeves gave evidence that she and Powell had been on intimate terms for 'some time' so the child needn't have been a baby, albeit there were no signs of the child on the 1891? I did try to do a follow up on Orlando Belueci and as far as I can remember he and his parents emigrated to the USA , but I didn't keep a record of my research.

Anthony Report 9 Jan 2011 09:56

I have just discovered a similarity in the names of the 'other' woman and her sister in the 1901 census purported to be Powell's wife and sister inlaw , with two women living in Camberwell in 1891. The 1891 census has a Mabel Sanger b Carlisle c1879 and her sister Isabella b Durham c1870. Apart from the surnames these women are identical. I can only see two females being born 1st qtr of 1901 whereas Mabel supposedly had a son. Neither Mabel or Isabella Sanger appear on the 1901 census in those names. I would appreciate it if anyone has access to the 1911 census if they could please do a look up for me on Mabel and Isabella Sanger, should there be a chance of ID a child. Thanks.

patchem Report 9 Jan 2011 10:29

No obvious Mabel Sanger (from around Carlisle area and birth around 1879) or Isabella Sanger (from around Durham area and birth around 1879) showing on 1911.
Marriage?

Anthony Report 9 Jan 2011 10:38

Hi Patchem

Thank you for your reply. I have just been looking at the census of 1891 before coming back here as well as the BMD. Closer scrutiny of the census shows that the family surname was mis-transcribed and should have read Sawyer not Sanger. Their mother Jane Sawyer is still in Camberwell in 1901 shown to have been widowed with some of her children and Isabella's daughter Dora Baker. Isabella married Charles Baker in 1890. Neither Mabel or Isabella appear on the 1901 in their own names.
