I'd like a look up please for the following DIXON family in Berkshire:

Robert b. ?
Sarah b. ?
Julia Ann b. 1855 Hurst or Wokingham, Berkshire

I would say this is Julia in 1881:

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much. This is what I have found so far:

DIXON Julia 27 'Duke of Buckingham' 11 Aug 1883 IMM/118 122 Z1960 M1699

Marriage # 1885/C01128 Dixon Julia Ann Morley John Patterson

Death # 1902/C0763 Morley Julia Ann Robert Dixon Sarah Pearce

Marriages Mar 1849 Berkshire
DIXON Robert Newbury 6 267
Pearce Sarah Newbury 6 267

I'd say that's Julia in 1871.

Hurst is 3 miles NW of Wokingham.

I can't see any marriage of a Robert DIXON to a Diana/Dianah in any county between 1838 and 1865 in FreeBMD. Makes me wonder if it's an error in census or transcription.


Hello Julie,

No sign of any other members of her family on the same vessel in 1883 or on any other vessel.

Please see if you can find Julia in 1861. Thanks.


Hi Dave,

Robert and Diana are on the 1881 and 1901 census. I couldnt find a marriage within the supposed time frame for this couple. Its possible that he and Sarah went their different ways and thats why he and Diana didnt marry or did so at a later date.

Civil parish Wokingham

Robert Dixon head age 31 occ miller born Hungerford
Sarah wife age 40 born Itchingwell Hampshire
William son age 10 born (transcribed as Hampstead Masher?)

Hello Julie,

Thank you very much. I guess that is Sindlesham:

Sindlesham is an estate village in the civil parish of Winnersh

Winnersh is a Liberty in the parish of Hurst
