Morning Fred,

Hugh piped me to the post. LOL.

Benj snr was a game keeper on the 1871 census place of birth Draughton Nths.
they were living in Bramley Nr Rotherham at that time.

I can see from Google Earth how small Draughton is/ was. Probably an estate worker. I did not go back to the 1861 census to check Benj snr out.

Re: PARENTS OF BENJAMIN BLAND MOORE

Hi Elaine,
Many thanks once again for your very kind reply. I think I have now sorted out Benjamin@s Details out But it was hard work with changes of age and places of birth in the different towns & Counties, But I still have not found any birth or Baptism record for His wife Harriet Rawlins again trouble with Age & town & county changes in different census forms although the other details are the same. I think she was born Sheffield Area Handsworth, Gleadless or Birley. The 1901 give both Benjamin being born abt 1837 in Norton Derbyshire I have found their Death records Benjamin Oct - DEc - 1910 age 75 Vol 7b Page 406 and Harriet Jan - Mar - 1908 age 76 Vol 7b Page 503 both events in Chesterfield.
Once again thank you very much for all your valued assistance.
My very best wishes.
Fred Wheatcroft.

Re: PARENTS OF BENJAMIN BLAND MOORE

Fred,

I have not followed thru with this idea........

BUT..The confusion seems to happen between 1871 & 1881.

1871 Benjamin the Game Keeper aged 32 born Draughton Nths.
Harried wife aged 29 born Bixley?

1881 Benjamin aged 44 born Draiston Nths.
Harriet wife aged 48 born Gleadless

Is it possible that we have two Harriets here.

Hannah dau was 9 born Bramley Is that the one nr Rotherham?
John son aged 7 born Ashover.

The two older children I found Moore/Rawlins registrations but the last two NO.

I could be wrong but maybe someone else could have a crack at it for you.

Re: PARENTS OF BENJAMIN BLAND MOORE

Follow up......

Went back to Good old FreeBMD and found the following.

Hannah Rawlins Moore RH 9c 574.
John Rawlins Moore Chesterfield 7b 566.

Rawlins being used as a middle name. So my suggestion of two Harriets just went down the drain. LOL.

Fred I still think the Handsworth registers might hold information on Harriet.
There is a good chance that it was Harriet's parish where they married.

I dont have any Handsworth material.

Fingers crossed for you.

Re: PARENTS OF BENJAMIN BLAND MOORE

Hi

There are no baptisms OR Burials for RAWLIN/S at Handsworth. Only 3 marriages Harriet, Clara and Edward. Clara looks to be the sister of Harriet as father is John a Timber Merchant.and Edward is an earlier marriage in 1833.

Re: PARENTS OF BENJAMIN BLAND MOORE

Hi Fred/Angela,

To follow on from Angela's find I think we are getting a little closer.

1871 census Gleadless (Civil Parish of Handsworth)

John Rawlins hm. 73 Timber Merchant born Ecclesfield
Keturah wife aged 65 born BIRLEY, Derbyshire.
George son um aged 31 Timber Merchant born Gleadless.

1861 they are in Gleadless and Harriet is with them aged 29 born Beighton as was her mother.

1851 census in Gleadless. Harriet aged 14 mother is called Catherine on this one.
But Catherine's age is 45 and born Birley which matches the 1871 info.

1841 Census.Handsworth. All born Yorkshire except for Catherine.
Household Members:
Name Age
John Rawlins 35 Wood Cutter.
Catharine Rawlins 30
Harriet Rawlins 9
Clara Rawlins 7
George Rawlins 4

I think thats it.

Happy Easter.

Elaine.
