Hi all.

Odd one here.. or atleast it seems odd to me.:D


I have a matilda Johnson Marrying Jeremiah Upton in 1875 in wolverhamton,


Matilda and Jeremiah had one Son, Joseph, Born 1878.

I then have Matilda, Now Jennings in the 1881 census with Joseph marked as William C Jennings son.

I simply assumed jeremiah had Died and Matilda remarried (she remarries again after william Dies)

I was looking to tidy up some loose ends and decided to find jeremiahs death date.... there is no death of a jeremiah until 1891. :confused:

The death records puts him at 52 when died in 1891.

I cannot Find a birth record to match this age anywhere in the UK, Nor can i find another Jeremiah death in between them getting married and matilda marrying William Jennings in 1881 :-(

There are several birth registrations for a Joseph UPTON in 1877 and 1878 so it's unclear which is the right one. It may be the Lichfield one being not far from Brownhills but I expected to see it in a different registration district because it's a different parish.

:) Staffs BMD have the marriage of Matilda Upton to William C Jennings
1881 at St Anne, Chasetown, N.U.Lyme
Added: should have said 1st qtr.

a death for William Cranage Jennings in jul/sep qtr 1888 aged 53yrs
in Sheffield Yorks, could this be him?

Oznannie

Added later: looks like him as Matilda Jennings married Arthur Thomas Carratt in 1889
Rotherham Yorks and Joseph as Jennings 13 is in 1891 census with them listed as stepson.

Yes, Matilda did marry Arthur carratt (i get the feeling matilda did not like being alone haha)


I have Spent the last few hours looking at this Jessie Upton. I cannot Find anything, Birth or death that mentions the mother. All i found was that there was another jeremiah upton born and living in sheffield.


Jeremiah is proving to be a hard nut to crack.

I still cant work out when he died, Or if he did infact die.... or if matilda just left him.

Thanks

Emma
