red mail seeking siblings of WILLIAM DAVIES PARRY

red mail North Lodge Regents Park
This develops a theme I previously aired on Curious Fox Two photographs of North Lodge Regents Park appear in our family photograph album. The first shews the Lodge in pristine condition (early 1870s) the second semi demolished following the gunpowder barge explosion on Regents Canal on 2nd October 1874. The family of Charles Edwards Superintendent of Regents Park occupied the Lodge in 1871 and were still there at the date of the explosion (Times, Evening Standard, Pall Mall Gazette, London Illustrated News etc) All survived. Having after several years established the name of the property and the incident which gave rise to its downfall with the help of the local history society, I am still none the wiser as to why it is in our album. A close family connexion suggests itself but searching census returns 1881 through to 1901 against Charle's sons Charles George James and daughter Eleanor Edwards has not produced an obvious connexion. Likewise searches against Mary Edwards daughter in law (wife of George) and the the servants Kate Lawn (present in 1871 b circa 1854 Shepperton) and Emma Jane Hodges present on the night of the explosion (no more info - derived from the press reports on the incident) again suggests no obvious point of contact or reason why we have the photos. If there was a family contact it is likely to be with one of Cox, Bell, Thiele, or Stumbke all of whom were then currently resident in Camden, Kentish Town and Westminster. Id like to exchange information with anyone researching this particular Edwards family
I am searching for details of Maria HUNT born in St John's Wood , London about 1867. Maria is shown on the 1891 census working in Chiselhurst, Kent as a laundry maid age 29? and on the 1901 Census she is working in the 'College' Stoke by Clare, Suffolk as laundry maid age 34. I have been unable to find any further details about Maria, so if someone can please help with more information it would much appreciated Edit or Delete
HUNT, Sophia
Sophia Hunt was my gt. grandfather's mother but no father named on birth certificate. He was born on 14th January 1847 at 6, Victoria Terrace, St. Johns Wood and named as James Hunt. I soundly catch up with James in 1871 census but before then history is very grey. I found a James Hunt in 1851 census in the Foundling Hospital but very unsure of this fact. James cites his father's name as Charles Hunt (dec'd) on his marriage certificate. Any information about HUNT around St. Johns Wood greatly appreciated.
red mail Bramwell - William Penney b. 1821 later Baynks and Osborne
The life events of Wllm Penney Bramwell would make a fine novel. He worked as a solicitors clerk rising to be the manager of the practice and later retiring in about 1880. He was born in about Aug 1821 at St Johns Wood, to Charles Bramwell and Sarah Penney who married in 1820. Sarah Penney was born in Paddington but her father was a wine merchant, William Penney, in Soho, London. After having their four children, one of whom died as an infant, the sisters of William Penney Bramwell Elizabeth Penney Bramwell and Sarah Penney Bramwell later moved to Guernsey with Charles and Sarah Bramwell. William Penney Bramwell stayed in Middlesex and later Kent. He lived as visitor to Elizabeth Buxton (listed as married) in the 1851 census with her children, most of whom turned out to be his! Her children may have been listed in the census as Buxton, but were baptized and registered, occasionally, as Bramwell. Three were christened at Holborn, despite being born elsewhere and seven more were registered at St Martins in the Field, in Westminster, on 4 Aug 1861. So, children of WPB and EB were (1) Charlotte Bramwell 1850 married Robert Jenkin Lawrence and moved to Canada. (2) Sidney Henry (or Herbert) Buckstone (or Buxton) Bramwell born 1858. Said Sidney Bramwell married Florence Ada Baynks born in about 1859 in Woolwich, in 1881, and they had three children: Florence Ethel Bramwell 21 Nov 1882, Lilian Maud Bramwell 1884 who married Ernest Robert Osborne and Sidney Bramwell in 1890.(3) Elizabeth Bramwell born 17 Nov 1846 may have become a servant and stayed unmarried. (4) William Charles Bramwell was born 20 Jul 1848 and died in 1874 in Lambeth. (5) George Augustus Bramwell born 11 Feb 1852, married Ellen Turner b 1856 in Sittingbourne, Kent to Charles and Sarah Turner, on 28 Jan 1877 and they had a large family; 1.Stanley George Bramwell born13 Nov 1876 in Sittingbourne and did in 1941 leaving Thomas and Dorothy May, 2. Reginald Charles Bramwell born 2nd June 1884 at Wandsworth and died 1972 having married Ellen Beatrice Puzey in 1908 leaving a son Reginald Charles Bramwell born 12 May 1910 and Elsie Ellen Bramwell born 1908. 3. Horace Bramwell born 1893 and died Mar 1931 at Edmonton, 4. Percy Turner Bramwell born 1890 at Balham Hill, and died 1958. 5.Annie Gertrude Bramwell born 1882 6. Sydney Brinsley Bramwell born 1887 and died 12 Sep 1917 in France and Flanders as a gunner, 7.Elsie Ruth Bramwll born 1894 in Lambeth, 8 Cecil Augustus Bramwell born in 1897 in Lambeth and died 1967 in Wallasey, Cheshire having married Dorothy Theresa Pollard born 21 April 1897 and died in Birkenhead.(6) Nathan David Bramwell born 27 Dec 1853 (7) Emma Elizabeth Bramwell born 27 Sep 1857 (8) Charles Bramwell 8 Jul 1859. William Penney Bramwell eventually married Elizabeth Buxton in 1860 maybe when she became widowed or ill. She died soon after. Then he had a child, Blanche Constance Bramwell by Fanny Rogers nee Gomm, widow of Alfred Josias Rogers, in November 1873, and married recently widowed Fanny in Dec 1873, but had moved in a week after AJR died. This broke up the family as the children were in boarding school and came home for the funeral to find WPB installed in their home. By 1881 Census, he was with Elizabeth Ann Faulkner, nearly 30 years his junior, the latter living as Bramwell, born about 1852 at Berkley St,nr Piccadilly, with a daughter Rita (Josephine) Bramwell aged 1. He had a son called John Horatio Bramwell a little later before dying in 1887. AJR (a veterinary surgeon), had left his property, 170, Brompton Road, in trust for his children, so maybe WPB had been a little disappointed in Fanny's inheritance. WPB was instrumental in the loss of at least £1000.00 of AJR's money by his nephew Edward Dresser Rogers, advising the family not to pursue the IOU's, and EDR was found to have £22,000 in his estate when he died about nine years later!! EDR also stripped his Uncle Francis Rogers of substantial sums in 1849.Elizabeth Ann(e) Faulkner's name was on WPB's will as sole executor. He left about £51.00. She may have been married before this relationship because I cannot find her birth. and WPB and EAF were NOT married despite this status on 1881 Census. Rita married John Joseph E Butler and they separated and I believe that John Horatio Bramwell worked for the post office and partnered Annie who was a few years older. Fanny Bramwell died in 1903, in Herne Bay, having moved to run a boarding house after her son, who had taken over the family veterinary business, had died prematurely and his widow, Clara Clifford, had taken over the furniture and property and her step child Marian Rogers the latter who emigrated to USA as governess to the Van de Bilds and died there. Back to the Penney Bramwells - Elizabeth, sister of above WPB married Walter Valder Gates born 1846, who was a dairy farmer. Their son Walter Rougier Bramwell St John Gates also known as Walter Bramwell St John Gates was the founder of the Cow and Gates empire. His son William Paul Bramwell Gates or otherwise known as Paul William Henry Bramwell Gates worked with his brother and father and was the founder of the dried milk product. Sarah Penney Bramwell married a Rougier on Guernsey, Channel Islands and adopted WPB's daughter Emma, changing the latter's name, eventually to Rougier. Records difficult on Guernsey so any help would be welcome on the Rougier Penney Bramwell connection. If anyone knows anything more, I should be delighted to hear especially regarding Elizabeth Buxton born about 1819 in Matlock, Derbshire and whom she might have been and who the father of John Buxton and Sarah Buxton was. Thank you.
red mail Stumbke
A cousin Eliza Stumbke had an illegitimate son in 1885 in St Marylebone Workhouse. Her address on the birth certificate was given as The Hermitage Loudoun Road (repeated twice on the certificate). attempts to identity the property in contemporary Street Directories (GPO and a local directory) and in the 1881 census have been frustrated by the fact that all the properties are numbered and few are referred to by name. Attempts to see if "the Hermitage" is still so named on the ground not unexpectedly failed. Eliza was brought up in St James Westminster and Lambeth till her father died when she was 8. She then lived in Mile End working as a French polisher an area in which she is recorded in censuses either side of the birth. She was 35 when the child was born. Can anyone help with the street no of the Heritage?
red mail Demolished house St Johns Wood
At the end of my gtgmothers photo album I have two photograpohs of a stuccoed Regency villa taken by Briggs and Son St Johns Wood. One shews it in pristine condition the other in course of demolition/after some catastrophic event causing the collapse of part.Ground rises steeply behind the house. The period in which the photographer traded suggest a date around 1890. It may link with the demolition of houses for the railway into Marylebone. Does this resonate with anyone elses family history?
red mail Nightingale St, St Johns wood/Marylebone
Hi, Tracing GGGrandfather and noted on marriage certificate they were living in Nightingale st, this is in 1860. But I cannot find it on any maps, possibley the street has been renamed. Any historians out there who could shed some light on this subject for me. Much appreciated.
red mail Annie Norah Scott
My Grandmother was Annie Norah Scott. According to the census she was born in St. Johns Wood in 1863. On her marriage cert. it states that her father was Thomas Scott Labourer Dec'd. She married Alfred Russell in 1886 in Mile End. They had 6 children and on all the childrens birth certs it says mother Annie norah Russell formerly Scott except one and it says formerly Webb. Its a puzzle and if anyone knows anything about this family I'd love to know.
red mail Barnett. Maurice Henry
The Barnett family lived in Hamilton Terrace (now apartments) where my Grandfather, William John Glover, was an indoor Servant. Maurice's wife was Maria (born in Belgium). Is anyone researching the family and would possibly have photographs?
