Hello Julie

Louisa ROWE b. 1800 Portsea d. 18 Nov 1869 Portsea

married 7 Feb 1826 St Mary's Portsea

Thomas (Christian? ) EVERSFIELD b. ? d. bef 1851

Children include the following with father listed only as Thomas:

Thomas Christian c. 9 Aug 1827 Portsea, Hampshire
Louisa Caroline c. 22 Apr 1831 Hastings, Sussex

Hampshire Telegraph and Sussex Chronicle etc (Portsmouth, England), Saturday, April 18, 1868; Issue 3722.
COLLINSON-EVERSFIELD.-On the 8th instant, at Kingston Church, Portsea, by the Rev. J. V. Stewart, vicar, John Emelius Collinson, Esq., eldest son of the late Rev. Henry King Collinson, vicar of Stannington, Northumberland, and nephew of Rear-Admiral Richard Collinson, R.N., C.B., of Trinity House, London, to Louisa Caroline, only daughter of the late Lieutenant Thomas Christian Eversfield R.N.

That is the only reference I have seen so far that lists Thomas senior with the middle name of Christian.

Louisa is listed as a widow in 1851.

Is this the death of father or son ?

Deaths Dec 1847
Eversfield Thomas Christian Portsea 7 118


The Cambridge University Alumni has Thomas Christian Eversfield admin sizar at St Johns June 4 1847, S of Thomas and Louisa. B King Street chapel Portsea Southampton. No middle name for Thomas senior!
Hello Julie,


So there is a chance with that June 1847 date that Thomas junior died in Dec Q 1847. And, that the marriage notice is incorrect in showing Thomas senior with a middle name. ???

So either of these deaths could be that of Thomas senior:

Deaths Mar 1839
EVERSFIELD Thomas Dover 5 77

Deaths Sep 1844
EVERSFIELD Thomas Hollingbourne 5 183

So far I've not been able to find a Thomas EVERSFIELD in any naval list of officers.

Thomas senior is not with the family in 1841. I don't know if he died before the 1841 census or if he just wasn't found possibly because the search was in Hampshire only?
