I'm looking for a marriage for Esther to a John HAMMOND.

Curious. A researcher thinks the baptism is 1817.


May not be the Esther I'm chasing:

event date: 1841
gender: Female
age: 39
birthplace: Kent
record type: Household
registration district: Canterbury
sub-district: Canterbury

A son George born 1838 - 1840 ?? England or Australia ?? Can't find birth in NSW or Vic.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave,

I havn't come across a baptism for Esther 1817 other than the submitted entry on the IGI.


Found these people in 1851.

CP - Clerkenwell - RD Clerkenwell - Sub RD St St. James Clerkenwell

26 Red Lion Street

Richard Orpwood head age 40 occ shop keeper born Brompton Kent
Mary wife age 45 born Limehouse
Ann dau 12 born Lambeth
Esther dau age 9 born ST. Seplechre
John son age 5 born St. Seplechre
Robert Hamman visitor age 10 born Lambeth
Esther Orpwood age 76 born Brompton Kent

Robert Hamman transcribed as Hammar (could he be John and Esthers son Robert).

Brompton is an old village near Chatham Kent.

Could be Esther and son Robert in 1871 (name transcribed as Albert E but looks like Robert to me)

CP - Bermondsey
RD St. Oalave Southwark
Sub RD St James Bermondsey

Albert E Hammond head age 29 occ ----- born Lambeth
Esther C mother age 67 born Bampton Kent
(theres a black mark over Esthers place of birth so it could be Brompton) also middle initial transcribed as C but possibily be E.
