The marriage that you quote for Rebecca Sophia Gandon gives father as George Gandon (St Mary's Chatham, 22 March 1886)

Richard George William Gandon aged 41 appears in the 1911 census when he uses his full name. He has a spinster sister Mary Maria Gandon age 48 with his family.
In 1901 RGWG is going by the name George Gandon, still in Gillingham and sister Mary with his family. ( indexed as Sandon)

In 1881 there is no Richard George William Gandon but there is a Wiliam Gandon aged 11 with sister Mary aged 18 in Gillingham Kent with their parents George and Mary. (PC 893, F 21, Pg 35)


It looks possible that the two birth you have are not children of Zaccheus and Annie

Thanks Elaine.

That answers a few questions.

Annie will probably remain a mystery.

This is the only George I have in my tree so far.

Zaccheus Gandon married Amelia Varrell 1832, Frindsbury, Kent
Amelia Gandon died Greenwich 1855

The 1861 census clearly says George W but the only possible birth entry for Greenwich 1850 is George Henry !

Jan 2 1877 Teynham Church
George Gandon, f.a. bat. School master, s.o. John Gandon lab
Elizabeth Sarah Back, f.a. spin. d.o. Henry Back lab
both abode Teynham

1881 census East Chinnock in Somerset,
School House
George Ganden, 25, elementary teacher, b Tonge Kent
Elizabeth Sarah, 25, b Tyneham Kent
George Henry, 2, b East Chinnock Somerset
Alfred OJ, 10months, b East Chinnock Somerset

earlier censuses show this George was the son of John & Catherine

Oct 25 1862 Teynham Church
George Gandon, f.a. bat. labourer, s.o. John Gandon, lab
Mary Ann Hughes, f.a. spin. d.o. Richard Hughes, lab
both abode Barrow Green

can't find what became of your George Gandon b 1850

Thanks Elaine.

Yes,

Amelia Gandon
Record Type: Burial
Burial Date: 9 May 1855
Age: 44
Parish or Poor Law Union: Greenwich St Alphege

So, 3x George, one born before 1850, mine, then one born abt 1856.

But only reg for a George Henry in 1850.

As my tree is now the only John I have is one born in Australia.

1851 census Zaccheus is indexed as Lacchens Gander !
the children with Zaccheus and Amelia are Elizabeth 16, Giles 13, Thomas 11, Susannah 9, Peter 6, Mary Ann 4, George 1.

Giles was baptised Giles Chadderton Gandon, at Chatham 21 Jan 1838. He was in the merchant navy and ended up married in Bridlington with several children. The "Chadderton" name may help with an earlier marriage.

Thanks Geoff.

Yes, could be his first marraige. Andrew from second marriage is my connection.

Last time around Julie found the indenture certificates for several Gandons but we could not find Peter's parents. There is also a researcher of the family in UK and as of my last contact he also had nothing on parents.

No, it seems no one can find his parents.

I have 7 children from second marriage. Some died young and some names repeated.

This is the one who ended up in Australia.

He joined the Royal Navy as an Ordinary Seaman on 5th July 1828 at Chatham. His Majesty's ship Crocodile's papers describe him as a Painter by trade, 5 ft 2 inches in height, of fair complexion and with Dark Hair and Eyes.

I won't post the full story but Andrew was discharged in Sydney from HMS Crocodile in 1829. Somehow a convict got hold of the discharge papers and used them and Andrew's name to marry.
