the 1841 census for Houghton Drayton, Hampshire (HO 107/400/2
shows John Roe m. 60 Blacksmith
John Roe m. 25 "
Charlotte Roe f. 60
Jesse Roe m. 15.

Charlotte died in 1846 and I have traced John Roe sen & Jnr
right through the censuses and BMD's but I have found no
trace of Jesse anywhere at all since 1841.
I would love to find another line of my Roe family. Can anyone help
or suggest where I might look now please.

Regards, Jennie.

Hi Jennie,


Nothing on the census unless the name has been mispelt. There is a death for a Jesse Roe 1841 Sept 1/4 district Hampshire. There is a birth for 1841 for a Jesse Roe district New Forest but have ruled out that its this one that died, as there is a Jesse Roe living in the New Forest area born abt 1840 on the 1861 census.

Thanks so much for looking Julie.

I think Jesse's death would have most certainly been recorded as "Stockbridge"

A search in the military lists might be a good idea. However, his brother and male cousins all seem to have followed the blacksmith business, and so a
a military career seems unlikely.On the other hand his mother died in 1846 when he was 20, and his father was living with John Jr and family, at the same address in 1851. Maybe Jesse did "join up". I'd really like to find out what happened to him, so I'll start looking!
Regards, Jennie.

Hi Jennie,

I think your Jessie Roe' father may be a brother to my husbands 3X Great Grandfather. who was Joseph Roe b13th March 1792. in Houghton. Joseph had a number of brothers and sisters among them a John b12th April 1776 m 6th Aug. 1812 to Charlotte, My inforamtion is taken from a family tree sent to me by a distant relative of my husabnds who I came into contact with on another site. so the only facts I can confirm are the ones concerning my husbands direct line.

Joseph m Mary Atkins 5th June 1823 James their son b 5th Nov. 1824 James was married twice and my husbands Great Granfather Alfred Charles Roe was a son of the 2nd marriage.

I can let you know more if you are interested. The family tree give a list of Josephs siblings if you want to confirm more through that it also goes back another4 generations to 1671.

Dear Elwyn,
Thank you for contacting me.
Yes, we are talking about the same line of the Roe Family.
My earliest "Roe" is Joseph Roe b 1716 married to Martha (unknown). and father to Joseph born in 1746 and John 1747.
John married Elizabeth and had eight children. 4 of whom died in the month of October 1796.John's eldest son also John was a Blacksmith as was Joseph's eldest son, also named Joseph.

On the 1841 census, there is John b.1776 & Charlotte (nee Gale),wife, plus John 25, "son, and Jesse Roe, 15, "son". I have still not found any further trace of Jesse and no mention of him is in the will of John Roe,(1) b1776 so maybe he could have been a relative just staying there for the night and entered as "son" in error. I can't find trace of his death anywhere.
Anyway I have a brief history of the Roe family on the family tree. which you would probably find interesting and I would be pleased to e-mail that to you, and have any details which you have, and would like to share, both previous to and after 1776.

If you would like to have the story and details of our Roe family descendants to date you can e-mail me on j.a.bookham1@ntlworld.com.

All the best. Jennie Bookham.
