I'd like a look up please in 1841 for the following WICKENS family, in Middlesex or thereabouts

John Flower b. ? d. Jun Q 1842 Windsor, Berkshire
Emma Elizabeth (ODGEN) b. abt 1820 d. ?
Emma Catherine b. Dec Q 1839 Poplar, Middlesex

Marriages Dec Q 1838 Middlesex
WICKENS John Flower Whitechapel 2 487
OGDEN Emma Elizabeth Whitechapel 2 487


Possible, but no father.

Emma Wickens 20
Emma Wickens 2
John Wickens 3 Mo (could be 3 weeks on image)

Gill Street
Cp: St Anne Limehouse
Hundred: Ossulstone (Tower Division)

Hello Lincoln Lad,

Thanks. Interesting. Their next child:

Births Jun Q 1841 Middlesex
Wickens John Benjamin Stepney 2 414

Deaths Sep Q 1844 Middlesex
WICKENS John Benjamin Stepney 2 317

His death does not match the information provided by family:

John Benjamine Wickens b 15 May, 1841 - died 9 Aug 1841

Census help on 7 June 1841.

Deaths Jun Q 1842 Berkshire
WICKENS John Flower Windsor 6 192

So I expected to see John Snr there. But it does look like the family. I'd say Emma's age is probably closer to 24 (rounded down as instructed).


Hello Lincoln Lad,

The next child:

WICKENS John William
b. 23 Aug 1845 c. 9 Nov 1845 Saint Nicholas, Deptford

and then possibly although I can't find the births anywhere yet:

Caroline b. 1852
Rozena/Rozina/ Rosena b. 1855

Please see what you can find in 1851 and 1861. Thanks.

Addition: The name appears as WICKINS and WICKINGS in some records.
