Presume you’ve checked whether Hannah married after 1861?

Mistycat

I can’t find a marriage for her but would be extremely thankful if you can

No baptisms are showing up for Anne or William which amazes me as all the rest of the family were baptised, maybe because they were illegitimate….

Anne married 1878
Gilpin Robert Penrith 10b 451
HODGSON Ann Penrith 10b 451

I guess I could buy the certificate see if that throws any light…..

Maylon, yes that’s Hannah’s mother and step father

Anne’s husband Robert Gilpin was resident at

1871 • Little Blencow, Cumberland, England

So I’m guessing Anne was still in the area

Some of the later censuses give her birthplace as Greystoke.

Thank you ArgyllGran

I’ve just ordered Robert Gilpin/Ann Hodgson’s marriage certificate, if nothing else it’ll look forward to it arriving!!

I haven’t ordered certificates in ages, now I’ve ordered four in one day, it’s still as exciting as the first….

Dacre/Greystoke are almost one and the same, a small bunch of hamlets crossing boundaries all over the place

The registration district is Penrith for all of them

Wow I’ve just noticed you’ve found Ann in 1871, thank you so much ArgyllGran

I wonder why she was all the way out in Appleby!!!

Mistycat

Mistycat Report 18 Sep 2021 18:18

So can anyone please find Hannah and her son William?

Thank you again ArgyllGran, I’m fairly sure that’s the Ann I wanted and couldn’t find
for soooooo long x

Have you looked on the GRO site at the deaths in Penrith district for Hannah Hodgson pre-1869?

Mistycat

Mistycat Report 18 Sep 2021 18:59

Apologies Erika, I should have said….

I have looked, there are 3, can’t remember exact years now but all in that time, looking again they are all the wrong age to be my Hannah

I must admit I haven’t looked for a death for William though…..


***Edit….just checked for deaths for William, none are the correct ages to be him.

So both Hannah and William still missing

Re that potential 1881 census record for William - I think that's likely to be correct:


There were only two William Hodgsons born in Penrith RD 1857-61 :
the illegitimate one in 1858, which you're assuming is "your" William,
and this one:

HODGSON, WILLIAM mmn BLENKINSHIP
GRO Reference: 1857 S Quarter in PENRITH Volume 10B Page 324

This is that William in 1861:

William Hodgson
in the 1861 England Census
Name: William Hodgson
Age: 4
Estimated Birth Year: 1857
Relation: Son
Father's Name: John Hodgson
Mother's Name: Margaret Hodgson

Where born: Skelton, Cumberland, England
Civil Parish: Lazonby

HODGSON, CHARLES mmn BLENKINSHIP
GRO Reference: 1852 J Quarter in PENRITH UNION Volume 10B Page 318

So I would guess this is that William in 1881 (he's with his parents in 1871, but not in 1881) , and that therefore the Greystoke man, who married Mary Ann Barker, is your William:

William Hodgson

CRAIG Sarah Carlisle 10b 602
HODGSON William Carlisle 10b 602

I'm pretty sure William and Sarah's marriage cert would say that William's father was John, a publican - in which case the Hodgson/Barker marriage would be the correct one..

Marriages Dec 1880 (>99%)
Barker Mary Ann Penrith 10b 620
