Re: LEWTON / LEAR puzzle

Hello Tracey,

Thank you very much. What an interesting suggestion. I've not been able to find George, spouse Elizabeth or daughter Elizabeth born abt 1838 anywhere in 1841 as LUTON / LEWTON or LEAR. I had no idea they might have had a son George too. If you don't look at the HODGES it certainly fits. The clincher would be if it had George's occupation as coach builder. James would then have to change from being an agricultural labourer to cheesemonger.

Quote:
1841
HO107 Piece 361 Book/Folio 27 Page 14
Registration District: Keynsham
Sub District: Oldland
Civil Parish: Bitton
Address: Warmley Hill Bitton Oldland
HODGES, George M 25 1816
HODGES, Elizabeth F 25 1816
HODGES, George M 6 1835
HODGES, Elizabeth F 3 1838
LEAR, Elizabeth F 20 1821 Shoemaker
NIPKIN, - M 25 1816
LEAR, James M 20 1821 Agricultural labourer
That would mean the following is a different James LEAR.

Quote:
1841
HO107 Piece 361 Book/Folio 10 Page 14
Registration District: Keynsham
Sub District: Oldland
Civil Parish: Bitton
Address: Near Hanham, Bitton, Oldland Gloucestershire
LEAR, James M 20 1821 Gloucestershire occ Lab
LEAR, Ann F 20 1821 Gloucestershire
That would leave open this marriage for our James:

Marriages Dec 1840
HORWOOD Ann Keynsham 11 134
LEAR James Keynsham 11 134

Quote:
I have the marriage cetrificate of James Lear to Ann HorWood on 28th Dec 1840 - It gives his father's name as Thomas (not Aaron) Do you have any idea why this is? - Let me know if this certificate is of any use to you and I could scan it in and send it to you.
I'd appreciate a copy. Thanks.

Re the father being listed as Thomas and not Aaron I think the answer is at the bottom of the next post. Prove that Martha's maiden name is HORWOOD.


Regards,

Dave

Hello Tracey,

Following on the census with spouse Ann (nee HORWOOD):

LEWTON, Ann Deserted Wife F 44 1827 Green Grocer Bitton, Gloucestershire
LEWTON, Fred Son M 11 1860 Bitton, Gloucestershire
LEWTON, Ann Daughter F 8 1863 Bitton, Gloucestershire

LEWTON, Annie Daughter Single F 18 1863 Work At Cocoa Factory Kingswood Gloucestershire

LEATON, Ann Head Widow F 65 1826 Living On Her Means
Bitton, Gloucestershire
Quote:
1901
Civil parish: Bristol
Ecclesiastical parish: Moorfields St Matthew
County/Island: Gloucestershire
Country: England
Registration district: Bristol
Sub-registration district: St George
Address: 19, Worsley Street, Bristol
LEWTON, Ann Head Widow F 77 1824 Living On Own Means Kingswood Gloucestershire
BEVAN, Martha Sister Widow F 80 1821 Living On Own Means Kingswood Gloucestershire
Deaths Dec 1901
Lewton Ann 78 Bristol 6a 108

So far I have not been able to prove Martha BEVAN is nee HORWOOD and sister of Ann. That would strengthen the case that we have the right Ann from 1851 onwards.

Regards,

Dave

Re: LEWTON / LEAR puzzle

Hello,
I think I've worked out how to add attachments. I've added the LEAR/HORWARD marriage certificate and the LEAR/HODGES census scan.

Re: LEWTON / LEAR puzzle

Hello Tracey,

Finding that marriage is a blow. For a minute there I thought you had found my GG grandmother, Elizabeth b. abt 1838.

I can't prove Martha's maiden name is HORWOOD, only that it seems to be HOWES.

There is a baptism record for a Martha HORWOOD with parents Thomas and Sarah but I can't find one for Ann.

I agree there is a problem in that the marriage certificate has Thomas and not Aaron as the father of James. I'm working on the information from the death certificate that says James married an Ann in Bristol. The 1871 census lists Ann as a deserted wife and that fits with James arriving in Victoria about 1863.

Regards,

Dave

Re: LEWTON / LEAR puzzle

Hello Dave,
Could the 1832 HODGES/WILMOT marriage be the marriage of your 3 x great grand parents? Many people in the family married using their mothers maiden name and WILMOT is the maiden name of Elizabeth PEACOCK(c1815).
Regards
Tracey

Re: LEWTON / LEAR puzzle

Hello,
A possible baptism for George Hodges c1835 is 15/10/1837 at Oldland
GEORGE son of GEORGE and ELIZABETH HODGES of CADBURY HEATH, fathers occupation:WHEELWRIGHT.

I've just checked this census record and the address is Warmley Hill

1851
Class H0107 Piece 1944 Folio 331 Page 4
CP Bitton
RD Keynsham
Sub RD Bitton
James Lear age 29 occ cheesemonger
Ann Lear age 25
Alice Lear age 5
Emily Lear age 2
All born Oldland


Which matches with the address of this record in 1841

HODGES, George M 25 1816
HODGES, Elizabeth F 25 1816
HODGES, George M 6 1835
HODGES, Elizabeth F 3 1838
LEAR, Elizabeth F 20 1821 Shoemaker
NIPKIN, - M 25 1816
LEAR, James M 20 1821 Agricultural labourer

I'm fairly certain that it's the same family.

Re: LEWTON / LEAR puzzle

Hello Tracey,

Thank you very much. How bizarre but how correct it would be.

William LEWTON married Ann LEAR on 8 August 1784 at Bitton. Son Aaron was baptised at Hanham on 24 April 1799 aged 15 years. Aaron married Ann HODGES as Aaron LEAR so he was using his mother's name suggesting he was actually born before his parents married. Hence the children called themselves LEAR when they were young and later in life reverted to LEWTON.

George was born about 1815 and his father Aaron LEAR married Ann HODGES on 9 May 1818. So George initially took the name HODGES. He married with that name and was listed in 1841 census with that name. He had changed to LEWTON by the 1851 census.

Elizabeth PEACOCK was born about 1815 and her parents Daniel PEACOCK and Ann WILMOT married on 10 Nov 1820. So Elizabeth took the name WILMOT.

When George married Elizabeth the marriage is HODGES + WILMOT.

George HODGES and Elizabeth WILMOT 6 Dec 1832 at Bitton.

Two generations on one side and one generation on the other. I'm not claiming any record.

Regards,

Dave
