Hello cp,

name: George Hodges
event: Christening
event date: 15 Oct 1837
event place: Abbots Leigh (Holy Trinity), Somersetshire, England
gender: Male
age:
christening date:
marriage date:
marital status:
burial date:
father: George Hodges
mother: Elizabeth Hodges
spouse:
spouse's marital status:
spouse's father:
spouse's mother:

1841
HO107 Piece 361 Book/Folio 27 Page 14
Registration District: Keynsham
Sub District: Oldland
Civil Parish: Bitton
Address: Warmley Hill Bitton Oldland
HODGES, George M 25 1816
HODGES, Elizabeth F 25 1816
HODGES, George M 6 1835
HODGES, Elizabeth F 3 1838
LEAR, Elizabeth F 20 1821 Shoemaker
NIPKIN, - M 25 1816
LEAR, James M 20 1821 Agricultural labourer
I thought we should try and trace George junior. I have no idea yet if he died young or stayed in England. He was not with the family on shipping record in 1857. I don't know if he would be in 1851 as HODGES or LEWTON or LEAR. Or if he married. George is not with the family in Wiltshire in 1851.

If you could have a look please and I will too. I can't find a matching baptism for sister Elizabeth although this birth fits:

Births Jun 1838
Hodges Elizabeth Keynsham 11 125

Also, I can't find the HODGES + WILMOT marriage or as HODGES + PEACOCK or any combination. I would have expected a marriage because a baptism for George junior exists. It does not say but looks as though he was 2 years old. I would therefore expect the marriage to be between 1835 and before 15 Oct 1837.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

I think by 1859 he was probably old enough to have reverted to LEWTON. I'll search these further first and try and match the couples.

Marriages Mar 1859
Crew Ann Keynsham 5c 1125
Lacey George Keynsham 5c 1125
Lewton George Keynsham 5c 1125
Peters Hester Keynsham 5c 1125

Marriages Jun 1868
Breese George Keynsham 5c 1130
Britton Caroline Keynsham 5c 1130

Carter Mary Keynsham 5c 1130
Lewton George Keynsham 5c 1130


Matched but both widowed. :eek:

Ok that match is confirmed by this one:

ame: George Beese
event: Marriage
event date: 01 Jun 1868
event place: Abbots Leigh (Holy Trinity), Somersetshire, England
gender: Male
age:
christening date:
marriage date:
marital status: Single
burial date:
father: Thomas Beese
mother:
spouse: Caroline Britton
spouse's marital status: Single
spouse's father: Thomas Britton
spouse's mother:


I can't find the 1859 ones so far.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

I can't find the 1859 marriages.

The 1871 census is not on the familySearch site.

Please have a look for George & Mary LEWTON in 1871 probably in Gloucestershire or Somerset and probably not far from Keynsham or Bristol.

George may turn out to be too old - but if that one can be ruled out it's progress.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thank you very much.

Please keep going to 1914 thanks. Somehow we will rule this one in or out. The age is pointing more to 1837 rather than 1835 and if London is Siston not Bitton that also is a negative.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thanks. Not looking like the right one.

Any sign of George with Mary in 1871? I suspect if you find him it will match this one and we can rule him out:

Deaths Mar 1880
Lewton George 88 Keynsham 5c 538

Thanks.

Dave
