Annie Beckley b1872

Postby katebenn » Sat Nov 18, 2017 4:28 pm

I'm looking for details on Anne/Annie Beckley - she gives her birth date as 1871/1872 at Winchester, Hampshire - but I can't find any details that strongly match unless her surname is wrongly spelt - it could be Buckley or Beckby.
She calls herself Annie Beckley Hibbard at baptisms of 2 children in 1898 & 1901.

I can't find her marriage c1896 to William George Hibbard - this could have been in Dublin as he was a soldier & their first child was born in 1897 in Dublin.

Any help or idea gratefully received

You didn't mention where the children were baptized but no sign of them in the Irish census of 1901.
BMD doesn't have an Ann, Anne, Annie registered in the yrs you mentioned for Winchester that resembles the surnames you listed.

Have you looked for Annie's maiden name under registrations for her children?

There's an 1896 marriage for a William George Hibbard in a Dublin registry office, to an Annie Beckley Coster - see here. William is a Sgt. in the Oxford Regiment, based in Beggars Bush Barracks.

Can you look at Irish records for a baptism for their first child Kathleen Violet Hibbard b 7 Dec 1896 for me?
Thanks

Hi,
Thanks for this - my records from the family always gave Annie's maiden name as Beckley; I hadn't thought of looking for a different one!
I've been pointed in the right direction for her marriage in Dublin on 7 Aug 1896 as Annie Coster of course.
Now trying to track her husband's army career.
Thanks again,
Kate

Have been pointed in the right direction - her maiden name was Coster
birth registration Annie Beckley Coster 1870 Jun Q Winchester; mother Coster
The family always gave her maiden name as Beckley which has thrown me up to now - she gave at baptism of child Edith Mary Hibbard her name as Annie Beckley Hibbard which shows her forenames as Annie & Beckley - all quite confusing but clear now; thanks for your help.
