red mail William Tickner d. 1847
William Tickner is my G.G.Grandfather who married Mary Grover in 1822, lived at Westfield, Woking where they had 9 children. Have been unable to trace where he was born or William's father, so have come to a fullstop in researching any previous ancestors.The most likely candidate would seem to be a William Tickner born on 15/1/1799 in the parish of Send/Ripley - a neighbouring village but have not been able to find any supporting evidence to connect them. Would welcome any information,no matter how circumstantial, from any descendents or interested parties.
red mail bessie maria spencer
Looking for info on Bessie Maria Spencer, her father was Thomas Spencer. On 1901 census her name is transposed to read Maria Bessie Spencer and she is working as a nurse at the London County Pauper & Lunatic Asylum, Cane Hill, Coulsdon. Bessie married Henry Wilson in 1902 at Chelsea Register Office, on the certificate her father Thomas is listed as being a porter in the junior army and navy stores. Bessie was an asylum nurse and Henry was a lunatic attendant at St. Georges Workhouse, Fulham Road, Chelsea. In 1917 Bessie married her 2nd husband - Edward Charles Gatland at Beddington Parish Church. They were both widowed and employed as munitions workers. Apart from the above I have been unable to locate any other records - census or BMD for Bessie or her parents. Can anybody out there help?
