Robertson family In Worcestershire c1800-1850

Postby sarahlouise_robertson » Tue Apr 11, 2017 7:32 pm

Hello all,

Ive been hitting a brickwall for a while now and not even a session with a SoG expert at WDYTYA LIVE at the weekend helped solve it!

I'm trying to find some missing Robertson's from Worcestershire on the 1841 and 1851 census' and to make sure I've got the right relations!

My tree is public on Ancestry 'Robertson Family Research' but I can't seem to locate

All seem to be born in Worcestershire or Shropshire.

Isaac Needham Robertson or any of his family on either 1841 or 1851 census.

I think His parents are; Rev Robert Robertson and Frances Bisselll

I think His wife is MARY ANN MERRELL b1802 d1838

His siblings are;
ROBERT ROBERTSON b1788 d1852
WILLIAM ARCH LEA ROBERTSON b1789 d.1731
MARY ROBERTSON b1791
THOMAS ROBERTSON b1796 d1851
JOHN ROBERTSON b1797
ANNA BRADFORD ROBERTSON b1800

And Isaac and Mary Ann's children are;

SUSANNAH ROBERTSON b1817
CHARLOTTE ROBERTSON b1821 d1859 (my direct line)
MARY ANN b1825
EDWIN b1827 d1897
BENJAMIN b1832 d1859
FRANCES b1834
SARAH b1838 d1838

Then Charlotte had my 2nd great grandfather Ernest Edwin illegitimately (I have birth certificate) in West Brom in 1853 but when she died in 1859 it looks like his uncle Edwin and his wife Eliza took Ernest in.

I just can't find the family on the two census - esp. Charlotte!!!

Help!

Sarah

Hi
Great spot
And it looks like Isaac Needham Robertson is also under Robinson at Warwick gaol in 1841.By 1851 he is down as Isaac Needham Robson at Sandy Lane Edgbaston.
