Hello,

Jesse GANDON c. 1818 Gillingham, Kent - parents Paul & Jane

So far I can't find the marriage of Paul & Jane.

Variations of the name include GUNDON, GAUDON, GANDER.

1851
CP: Shoreditch
Eccl parish: Hoxton Trinity
Middlesex
Street Address: 3 Copley Terrace
RD: Shoreditch

ED: 6
John Gundon 33 (correction put in as Jesse) Occ. Letter Carrier b. Brompton, Kent

I'd like a look up for Jesse in 1841 please. He is a shoemaker and unmarried.

Regards,

Dave

Hello Ozn,

Thank you very much.

I thought James would have been 10 yo and listed as grandson ?? If not then some other transcription is in error. It's just a note on a tree I found.

Hello cp,

Thank you very much.

At first I thought Jesse was a missing son of Peter (b. abt 1772 Faversham, Kent - parents unknown) & Ann but he is not. I found this non-conformist record:


name: Jesse Gandon
event type: Baptism
birth date:
birthplace:
christening date: 19 Apr 1818
christening place: Gillingham, Kent
marriage date:
marriage place:
death date:
death place:
burial date:
burial place:
father's name: Paul Gandon
mother's name: Jane Gandon
record set: RG4_1653

Jesse's spouse:

Mary Ann CHESSON b. 14 Jan 1816 c. 4 Feb 1816 St Margaret, Rochester, Kent, England


So his age at death is 10 years out.

Regards,

Dave
 
Hello cp,

Please see if you can find Mary with this help: (I presume those errors are in the original - they are not my typos :) )

1891 75 yrs widow living with son Frederisck and his family in Lorraine Road, Islington,

1901 84 yrs widow still living with Frederick and the Grandon Family in East Dulwich Road, Camberwell.

Hello cp,

The next step will be to search for more info on Paul. I think he is a few years younger than Peter. At the moment I'm assuming they are brothers but it may be difficult to prove. This is the connection:


1851
Name: Sarah Gundon
[Sarah Gandon]
Age: 30
Est birth year: abt 1821
Relation: Visitor
Gender: Female
Where born: Brompton, Kent, England
CP: Shoreditch
Eccl parish: Hoxton Trinity
Middlesex.
Street Address: 3 Copley Terrace
Reg dist: Shoreditch
Sub-reg dist: Hoxton New Town
ED: 6
John Gundon 33 (correction put in as Jesse) Occ. Letter Carrier b. Brompton, Kent
Mary A Gundon 35 b. Rochester, Kent.
Carline Gundon 3
Frederick Gundon 2
Sarah Gundon 30 [nee PHILLIPS] visitor
James Chesson 16 visitor

Sarah is the 1st spouse of Isaac, son of Peter. I think it just says visitor for both Sarah and James. Would be even better if it said Sarah was a cousin and that James was a brother-in-law.

Regards,

Dave

Hello cp,

Thank you very much.

That's one bit out of the way. Now to find more stuff on Paul & Jane. I've had no luck yet finding the marriage.

Jesse had a brother William b. abt 1819 who died in 1851.

Deaths Mar 1851
GANDON William Medway 5 275

This is curious. Either the 1841 census gives the impression of a 1819 birth or one died young and another son was named William. Still does not help with finding more on Paul:

name: William Gandon
event type: Birth
birth date: 12 Nov 1808
birthplace: High Street Brompton, Gillingham, Kent
christening date:
christening place:
marriage date:
marriage place:
death date:
death place:
burial date:
burial place:
father's name: Paul Gandon
mother's name: Jane Gandon
record set: RG5_040

Paul and Jane had several other children with baptisms in the non-conformist records.

Regards,

Dave
