John Smith... Watchmaker
I am seeking information about my great-great-great-grandfather, John Smith. He was born in Clerkenwell c.1822 according to the 1871/81/91 censuses. He lived at 11 Rectory Place, Woolwich in each of those three years, but wasn't there prior to that. In 1871 & 1881 he is shown as married to Mary, but his daughter (Elizabeth Glover b.c.1843) was born when Mary was about 13 years old, so it seems likely that Mary was John's second wife. In each of the three census entries and on Elizabeth's marriage certificate (22/10/1865, The Parish Church, Lee - to William James Glover), John's occupation is given as "Watchmaker". John is listed as a widower on the 1891 census, and (so far) I have been unable to locate him on the 1901 census So I assume he died between 1891 and 1901. I have also failed to find him on the 1861 (or earlier) census. If any of the above matches your tree or if you can help in anyway, then I would be most grateful to hear from you.
