Searching for Thomas William Wheeler birtj

Postby stefano » Tue Oct 10, 2017 7:46 pm

I am looking for the birth of my 2nd great grandfather. His name was Thomas William Wheeler. He was born abt 1855 and died 1887 I believe in Hertfordshire. His dad was a Thomas Wheeler. I have obtained a birth certificate that has him having his mum as Sarah. But on census his mum is Catherine.

You probably need to post a bit more on your Thomas William
Presuming he married, who to, and where? What did he say about his father, Thomas?

1887 death was in Lambeth.

the 1871 census is for Hormead and as you say clearly mother is Catherine. Place and names match baptism Ianbee has posted.
What about the Hemel Hempstead birth registration for Thomas William WHEELER M qtr, 03A page 306?
Mother's maiden name BALL.

I cannot see a Wheeler Ball marriage though.

(In 1861 Thomas is 27 and Catharine 26 but in 1871 they are 36 & 46 respectively)
