Henry Rigley Birth - Please Help!

#1
I wonder if anyone can help me please?
My GGG Grandfather Henry Adolphus RIGLEY was born c1800, but I don`t know where! He was a solicitor in London up to his death in 1857 in Shoreditch. He married Emilia PERRY in May 1839 in Lambeth, Surrey, and on his marriage certificate, his father`s name is also Henry RIGLEY - I can`t find any trace of him either!
Henry Adolphus RIGLEY was in Gravesend in the 1841 census, and in prison for insolvency in London in the 1851 census.
He also has links to Essex.
I would really appreciate any help and information, thank you.

Karen.

Hi Jayne

Mary Ann Zoe Rigley baptism.

Nov 15 1846
Born 16 Jan 1846

Christ Church Southwark.

Mary Ann Zoe d of Mary Ann Starling (by) not to sure of this word, Henry Rigley gent.

Looking at how the record has been recorded with mothers name first, I would think that Mary Ann and Henry didnt marry. Perhaps someone with access to record could have a look.

Hi Jayne,
I too, have been unable to find a marriage for Henry Adolphus Rigley and Mary Ann Starlng, but Henry did marry Emilia Perry.
Henry Adophus Rigley and Mary Ann Starling had 4 children: Mary Ann Zoe (1844), Henry Adolphus (c1847), Maria Sophia (c1853) and Frances (22nd april 1857) - my GG Grandmother.
I have lots of documents and photos if you would like copies....

Hi Karen,

Just a thought do you think that Henry may have altered his name slightly, as I did come across a Henry Wigley (middle name transribed as Rodolph at time of marriage) occupation solicitor.

Hi
Just seen this old post. I’ve recently done a dna test as I was trying to find my birth fathers family. It seems that Henry Adolphus Rigley was my gg grandfather and his daughter Frances Rigley was my g grandmother. I have been researching him and his family. Any help would be appreciated.
