Isaac Farndon

Postby KayFarndon » Mon May 22, 2017 7:09 pm

I have been trying to locate Isaac Farndon on the 1841 census using Family Search, but drawing a blank, so hoping someone else might be luckier and find him for me. He should be with his wife Hannah and children William, Harriet and John.
Isaac married Hannah Wakefield in the September Quarter of 1837.

I presume your Isaac Farndon was from the Foleshill region? If so, there are different marriage records on Ancestry:

On 23 July 1837, Hannah Wakefield married Thomas King in Bedworth, Warwickshire. On the same day in Bedworth, an Isaac Farndon (collier) married Susanna Cartwright.

But on 24 December 1837, an Isaac Farndon (weaver) married Frances Parker in Bedworth. This Isaac is described as a bachelor.
In the June quarter of 1844, there is a death for Frances Farndon (age 33).
Then on 15 July 1844, widower Isaac remarried in Bedworth to Hannah Sharp (spinster).

In 1841, there is a Bedworth census record for:
Isaac Farndon (age 30, weaver)
Frances (age 30)
William (age 3)
John (age 1)

Piece 1136, Book 5, Folio 13, Page 19.

There is an 1838 birth on the GRO index for a Harriet Farndon in the Foleshill district. But her mother's maiden name is listed as Cartwright.

Update: Isaac and Frances had a son Eli, born 1843. In the 1861 census, he is living with his grandparents John & Charlotte Parker. Eli is a ribbon factory worker in Bedworth. Looks like he might be with them in 1851, too.

Thank you JMcKinnon for all the information you have presented.

Isaac was from Bedworth and the registration district was Foleshill then, but today covered by Coventry.

I have no certificates and am already thinking I should apply for some. My main interest is Isaac's son Walter [Walter Isaac] born 1873, died in USA. I know a lot about him and had hoped he was part of our family tree, but need to go back further to discover the origins of his father Isaac and see whether I can connect him to a Thomas and Elizabeth Farndon from Harborough Magna.
Sincere thanks again.

Walter Isaac was, I think, Isaac's grandson, not his son. His parents were Amos FARNDON and Adelaide Caroline WILLIAMS

Apologies, a slip of the typing finger and I should have type Amos!
Many thanks.

I have not yet researched the parentage of Isaac Farndon. Just reading through all these messages again and JMcKinnon says Isaac's father was called Thomas from his [Thomas's] marriage to Frances Parker, when it was Isaac who married Frances.
He then corrects himself and says Mary, so if you have any fuller details of this marriage I would appreciate it.
I am sending for Walter's birth certificate [1873] to ensure I have the right man and am following the right line.
There are so many men with the same Christian name, it can get confusing. So I hope I have got my facts right.
