I can't find a John Beard in 1871 in Tewkesbury.

Father John or Edwin ?? Mother Maria or Phoebe ??

No marriage on FreeREG in Glos or Somerset for Beard to Owen.

I think the 1876 death is half correct. :)

The census look ok.

Parents look to be John Beard and Phoebe Owen.

The census shows some children born London/Middx but can't find a baptism for Edwin, so not sure where he was born.

Wording of the death notice seems to imply his father is still alive. Does not say 'late' and says Home papers please copy.

Thanks Geoff.

Edwine must be Edwin = male = 1828.

If that quote in post #1 is correct then John married Maria then married Phoebe. ??

But which one was Owen ?

I said the death reg was half correct. I think I now know which half.

father = beard but not Edwin and mother = Owen but not Phoebe

This would fit the 1851 for Harriett, but father's occ = Jeweller, not 'dyer'.. Also, if correct, Maria still alive..

Harriet Beard
Baptism Date: 30 Jun 1832
Place: Clerkenwell St John, Islington
Father: John Beard
Mother: Maria Beard
[b. 24 June]

Geoff

EDIT: Abode = Lower Smith Street.

Thanks Geoff.

A jeweller becomes a dyer ? But the baptism looks ok given the pob in 1851.

No death for Maria on FreeREG or FS.
