John Thorpe Stevens married Elizabeth Williams, in 1842 @ St Marylebone.

2 Children, Lucretia Mary(1852) and Elizabeth Sarah(1856).

All census returns found after 1851. Died in West Ham in 1895.

His occupation is a Baker.

He is a brother to Sarah & Mary Stevens(in another thread).

Can he be found in the 1841 census.

Thanks for looking......again.:biggrin:

I think this a bit of a hopeless task, as the only real evidence to go on is his name and age and occupation in reality.

Found one likely suspect in St Marylebone, with Occ. as a labourer. Seems to be house of multiple occupation. So I'll take that as solved really.:confused:

Now here's a bit of a coincidence, Elizabeth Williams(c1816), gives a pob as Wales in the 1851 census, then Frome and Bridgewater, Somerset, in later census.

Her father was David Williams.

So I think I've found her in St Marylebone in 1841 census.

I've just done a search for her baptism in Familysearch, and one popped up that got my interest.

Elizabeth Williams.
Gender - Female
Christened - 3 Apr 1815
Christening Place TRINITY CALVINISTIC METHODIST, DEVYNOCK, BRECON,WALES
Birth - 31 Mar 1815
Father - David Williams
Mother - Lucretia Jenkins.

I know this is grasping at straws, but the name Lucretia seemed a bit of a coincidence, as it's a name of one of her daughters. This christian name has never appeared in my family names at all. So it does make me wonder.:rolleyes::biggrin:

I know there was a lot of tooing froing between Wales and and the SW of England, so this baptism record is one for my notes.:rolleyes:

Certainly sounds good to me. Lucretia is not a common name. I've found a couple like that, where a name which is not very common continues down the generations.

The daughters second christian names, which I suppose, were named after his sisters, or his mother.

I'll still keep it in my notes, but it seems all too feasible.:biggrin:
