Cannot find them after this entry.

This is all I know, sorry.

Hi Steve

Gee whiz even the eye in the back of my head can't see them.

Is it possible the family was stationed overseas, i.e Canada. 1851 looks like they are stationed in a army barrack.
I wonder if Jacob died before 1861 census and Rebecca remarried, son William taking on this name.

Will have another look:mad:

Hi CP, found a 1861census entry in Garleston, Suffolk for a Jacob Moore, and a son Jacob Moore.
I wondered if Rebecca died, and the son took his christian name. Seems to have a very young wife with him.

Thanks a lot Steve

Just had to put back the band-aid's on my forehead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D

My initial reaction was Steve you've just lost the plot, but then our ancestors did some wacky things like changing their names.

Jacob MOORE junior is in the 1871 census as a soldier, this time born in Chatham, Kent and this time he is b.1850 age 21, maybe he lied about his age to join the army.

Jacob MOORE senior is still living in 1871 with his very young wife.

There is a death for a Rebecca MOORE Dec Qtr 1854 District Mutford, Suffolk

There is a marriage for a Jacob MOORE to Mary Ann NELSON Sept Qtr 1860 District Mutford, Suffolk

cheers

Hi CP,
Sorry about the sore head, you should see mine.
This is another 'theory' for trying to find Jacob Moore (Gt.Grandfather).

Threads 'Jacob Aaron Moore' and 'My Granny's father'. just show how hard everyone is trying to help.

This Jacob b1850 though, rang a little bell in my head. As my Grandmother was named Rebbecca, you can understand the reasoning. (Naming children after their parents).

I read in the 1851 census(there seems to be a double entry for this location) that Williams mother was named Barbara Moore. I made an assumption that Barbara had died, and Jacob and Rebecca took William on as their own.

So William b1850 became Jacob, and went on to have a family and have a child called Rebecca, my grandmother.

Are you following me so far. (Ouch my head)!!:D

Could all this make sense.

It seems strange that I have 2 Jacob contenders, who both end up in the army. And their fathers, who were in the army also.

Thank you so much for you continuing help.:)

Steve.:)

Hi

I have just looked on the cityark website for baptisms in Chatham from March 1850 to April 1852 and cannot find a William or Jacob Moore baptised there.

The BMD indexes dont seem to have a likely birth in the area either. he was 8 months in the 1851 census so born about August/Sept 1850.

Hi Steve

It looks like it says Unm for Unmarried.

I am more inclined that the imbecile Jacob :D in 1881 in Caterham is your ancestor.

How did I know you were going to say that Ben.:biggrin: :biggrin:

I'm theorising on this one as well. It is a possible one, just getting ahead of the game. As said before, he was in barracks in Bury, Lancashire.

I think you want to connect me to the 'looney', after seeing the picture of me picking dandelions in my dressing gown. :2fun: :2fun: :2fun:

Hi Steve

I am sure that your Jacob Moore is one of the 2 that we have been researching. I dont think there are any other candidates.

Hi Steve

Sorry to hear of another "Imbecile", perhaps he only had two choices where to live (1) Asylum (2) Step Grandmother. I can understand this dilemma!!!!>:D

Couldn't find Jacob jnr in 1891.

cheers
