Trying to find out what happened to ANNA MARTHA WEAVER ( formerly DODD ) who was born in St. Mary Bourne, Hampshire about 1850. In 1874 she married FREDERICK GEORGE WEAVER, a master mariner, and later gave birth to 4 children. In 1890 her husband died suddenly at the young age of 39. In the 1891 census she is a widow living in Fisher's Road, Eling, Hampshire. I have searched FreeBMD and cannot find a record of her death or ever marrying again. The 1901 census shows her son, FREDERICK ( junior), as " Head of household " still living in Fisher's Road with two of his sisters. Please can anyone help solve this mystery ? Many thanks.
Grateful for any information about ALFRED ISAAC WEAVER who was born in 1852 and sadly died in 1854. It is suspected he may have been born in Eling, Hampshire and his parents might have been George Weaver and Eliza Weaver (formerly Biddlecomb). Many thanks.
Grateful for any info. about ELIZABETH TILLER (maiden name not known), who was born approx.1761.

He and his wife had 7 children as far as I can trace and lived for many years in Eling Lane. Any info about his wife would also be welcome, many thanks.

red mail BROOMFIELD, Charles 1831/2
Trying to locate the parents of Charles Broomfield born c1831 Eling, I have a family in the Workhouse in Eling for the 1841 and 1851 census, John c1829 (1841 only), Jane c1833 (1841 only), Charles, Mary Ann 1835 and Eliza c1837 (1841 and 1851 census). On Charles' marriage record father George and mother maybe Ann. This is all the info I have on parents, is there anyone with the same family?? Thank you
From circa 1870 to 1900 two families in Eling served as wet nurses and temporary guardians to children born of an extra-marital relationship between a James John Myers of Southampton and an Annie Chrisp of Ryde and Southampton. The two familes were Phillips and Cooper. The Phillips children all had the surname Myers and the middle name Chrisp. Most of them eventually went to live with their father in Southampton. (Seven Chrisp Myers children are recorded at their father's home in the '91 census although by '01 Myers was in the workhouse and died shortly after.) The Cooper children were registered Myers but stayed with their guardians and eventually took their name. I am not absolutely certain that the 'Cooper' Myers had the same father as the 'Phillips' Myers but it seems probable. A Caroline Luker (William Phillips' mother-in-law) pops up in various places during the period in question, generally in Eling, but on one occasion in Southampton as a 'servant' to Annie Chrisp and one of her Chrisp-Myers children. If anyone is researching Cooper, Phillips or Luker families in Eling during the relevant period I would welcome the chance to compare notes.

red mail Jacobs Gutter Lane and Bury House
My ancestor William Rogers lived at Totton/Eling for some time in the 1830s and had several children baptised at Totton Independent Chapel. His wife was Mary Ann Sillence.He worked as a Butler at Bury House, Marchwood in 1839. Does anyone have any information on Bury House at this period. Is it still there? This information is taken from his son Charles' birth certificate which also states that Charles was born at Jacobs Gutter Lane. Any information gladly received.
Born 1789. The story is that William was a child brought to England from france during the French revolution(1789) by his nurse who died soon after arrival. Cannot prove story. Points to note are(1) at the death in 1834 his age of 45 dated his birth at 1789 (2) if he was the legitimate son of Thomas Dunnings and Elizabeth Rabbet why is there no baptism for him? Eling is on Southampton water where emigrates from France would have landed. Cannot trace adoptions papers or anything written documents to link William with his "parents". (see also entry for John Dunnings)
Dunnings Dunnince, Dunnen,or Dunning earliest mention found is at Hursley,Hants, in the will of John Duning(b abt 1700- died 1752),first wife Hester, second wifeSarah, no trace of either. No parish entries found. Also connections at Chilworth before the move to Eling. Associated names include Purkis,Purkess,Purkiss, Lane(see separate entry from John Lane) Poat and Whitehorn.
