Hi GP. The plot thickens!
As well as being part of this forum, I am a member of 'findmypast.com' and the Genes Reunited site and I believe we have been in contact through that site and have access to each others trees. So I think I understand your situation.
So that I could get things...
Thank you all for confirming the information regarding Kennith. You may be interested in the following information I found while surfing the net:
Kenith Trodd grew up in working-class Southampton. His father was a crane operator, and his parents were members of the Plymouth...
Hi GP. I agree with Hammy. I was going to suggest looking for a will. Do both chaps appear in the 1841-1901 Censuses? Have you researched the children's marriages from both partners?
After reading through your text several times, I would be inclined to believe that it is one and the same...
Hi Ed, I'll bet your pleased with yourself for finding that information. :biggrin: It's surprising at the amount of records and information out there. It's just a case of knowing where to look. Are you going to buy a print?
Hi Clare, we have been in contact before on the Genes Reunited site. I hope the following helps. Clifton Cottage stil exists, it is one of a pair of semi-detached properties. In fact my son lives nextdoor but one to it in Newtown Road.
All the best Maggie

Thanks for all that information GP. I believe Jane Gibbons was the daughter of Mary Trodd by her first husband.:)

Hi All, yesterday I visited Southampton Archives and I found the following information. I don't know if it helps or causes further confusion:confused:

Hi GP, yes it would be great to have an insight into their lives. Even back then some women had "Toyboys!"
Here is another glimpse into Harriet's life:

PENNICOT, George Head...
Hi gemma's pal, yes that's right. She was 39yrs, 41yrs & 42yrs when she had George's children. I believe she died aged approx 93yrs in 1904. She must have been a tough old bird! :) I found the following details:
1901 census - household transcription

A search of the 1841 Census revealed only 2 Harriett Trodds:

Hi All, thanks for that information GP, the plot thickens. I found the following information on:
It's well worth a visit!

Sorry, yes. I'm 100yrs out. The John & Richard mentioned were born in Alverstoke c1763. As for whether or not John was born in Hampshire is open for debate. Did he fully understand the question? In 1841, John would have been well into his seventies, so allowances have to be made for some...

1.Thomas b1859 Portsmouth m. Mary Seager (they had at least 8 children one of them being the John Trodd b1782 Alverstoke, who married...
Hi Sarah, Ed and Hammy. Thanks for your opinions, it really helps to have someone else's thought & ideas. I have looked at another contact's tree on Genes Reunited and found John & Martha Trodd (nee Catcheler) m. Warblington 10/04/1812. They are the parents of Eliza 1813, Harriet 1815...
Hi Sarah, I'm well thanks. How are you?
Warblington is to the east of Southampton, just past Portsmouth and south of Petersfield and West Meon. I was wondering if they could possibly be 'our John & Martha'?
Hi, please can anyone shed any light on the John & Martha Trodd who had 2 daughters christened at Warblington:
1. Eliza - 10 Jan 1813
2. Harriet - 5 March 1815.
Also, are they the same John & Martha who were the parents of the following four children?
1. JOHN TRODD - International...
