Hello,

Given these match and that Ann is not a spinster

Deaths Dec 1859
Luton Ann Keynsham 5c 499

Burial: LEWTON Anne 10 Nov 1859 92 Hanham, Christchurch

I'd like a look up please in Somerset and Gloucester only for possible in 1851 and 1841.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello Emeltee,

Thank you very much.

Woodmancote does not fit but Hanham certainly does but it's hard to know with the age so far out. Perhaps the 92 at burial is out and the 70 in census is out as well.

I have 2x Ann LEWTON in my tree and so far a death/burial that fits for neither.

Regards,

Dave

Thanks Geoff.

I don't know yet if it's one of the two in my tree or some other Ann.

Ann LEAR who married William LEWTON 8 Aug 1784 Bitton

or

Ann HODGES who married Aaron LEWTON 9 May 1818 Bristol

England & Wales Christening Records, 1530-1906
Name: Ann Hodges
Gender: Female
Christening Date: 15 Oct 1769
Christening Place: Bristol, Gloucestershire, England
Father's Name: John Hodges
Mother's name: Jane

England & Wales Christening Records, 1530-1906
Name: Ann Lear
Gender: Female
Christening Date: 25 Sep 1763
Christening Place: Bristol, Gloucestershire, England
Father's Name: George Lear
Mother's name: Ann

These 2 appear to be closest from a birth aspect, Ann Hodges would be favourite bap. 1769. But her first marriage in 1818 would mean she was abt. 51y :rolleyes:

Thanks Geoff.

I have only the marriages with no age at marriage. No tree to guide ? me re dob or death/burials for those two. It's possible that death is neither of the two.

Looking at spouse of other LEWTONs I can see a Sarah and a Martha. Don't know how many named Ann.

One fact that might be worth following up on is:

Mary Lear married James White on 8 August 1784 in Bitton. (the same day and place that Ann Lear married William Lewton) - Mary may possibly be Ann's Sister. Also William and Ann baptised Aaron on the same day and at the same place as John and Jane Lear baptised Stephen.
Aaron Lewton, son of William and Ann Lewton baptised at Hanham on 24 April 1799 aged 15 years.
Must have been before 8 Aug 1784 but in 1784 then. That gives a rough idea how old Ann HODGES might be.

Aaron buried 10 Dec 1826 Kingswood Holy Trinity.

Ann nee HODGES may have remarried. Children born 1815 (George as HODGES), 1820, 1822 and 1826.

Quote "Aaron Lewton, son of William and Ann Lewton baptised at Hanham on 24 April 1799 aged 15 years."

Yeah, that makes sense, found a tree with a birth 1799, so they've mistaken the bapt. for the birth.

Yes, that's the marriage to Aaron LEWTON who is LEAR because he was born before his parents married just as George was born 1815 before the 1818 marriage.

I was thinking Ann may have remarried after 1826 since she had 4 children born 1815 to 1826.

That's where it gets complicated, more variant names :confused:

That's not complicated Geoff. :2fun: That's only one parent and first child.

One other branch has one child, both parents and one grandparent. >:D

There aren't any obvious Ann's with the correct birth (of those that birth's can be achieved) apart from the 1859 death. There aren't any obvious Ann's that are traceable in 1841/51 either.

But may be worth considering (Popular BI):
3 Jun 1843 Ann Lewton 75y, Dursley, St James the Great, bur. [About 20 miles N of Keynsham]
11 Apr 1833 Ann Lewton 78y, Long Ashton, All Saints, bur. [Age maybe 10y out. About 5 miles SE of Bristol]

Thanks Geoff.

Wish we could find something more definite about the one who died in 1859. Unlikely to be any marriage and change of name so she should be Ann(e)/Hannah LUTON/LEWTON in 1851 and 1841.


Catch you tomorrow. :)
