Harry George STEVENSON b abt 1870

Postby JMcK » Sat Jun 02, 2018 8:45 am

In 1907 Harry George STEVENSON married in NZ. He says he is 37, born England. Parents George STEVENSON a farmer and Lydia WETTON (or WELTON).

There is a family with births and baptisms Uttoxeter that fits

George STEVENSON and Lydia WHETTON married Uttoxeter 2nd qtr 1860

Can see them in censuses GRO index and some baptisms to get

George Henry 1860 Uttoxeter as Henry 6b 268 I can't see him for sure after the 1871 census

Isaac 1862 Uttoxeter. appears to have married Olive BURGESS 1883 and died 1885 6b 263

William 1863 Uttoxeter 6b 272 m Jane Johnson and is accounted for to 1911

Arthur 1865 Uttoxeter, 6b 299 married Elizabeth someone and is accounted for through to 1911 census

Annie 1869

Harry George age 37 in 1907 should come in here, but I don't see him

Lydia 1871

Edwin Thomas 1873 (Stoke on Trent 6b 207) accounted for in 1911 in England and is with his mother who says 10 children, 7 living

Frederick 1878 Can't find his birth in the GRO indexes. George died 1877 I think so that might be why.

I'm missing 2 births can anyone see them?
And can anyone see George Henry born 1860 in 1881, 1891 or 1901, 1911, or a death before 1907

I'm wondering if he lied about his age at marriage (on the death cert of his wife it seems to indicate he was 45 when he married, which would just about fit)

There's a baptism for a John 18.8.1867 buried 30.12 1867 age 5mths.
Henry George Stevenson born 1860 married Annie Davies in Hartshill Staffordshire 11.10.1881 father George.
They are on the 1901 census 9 Hulme st Son T
Harry G Stevenson 40 grocer Uttoexeter
Annie 39 Hixon
Reginald D 16 Grocer's assistant Son T
The previous census has an extra son Harold George age 9

Struggling to find them after that.
Son Harold married 1909 at Newton All Saints to Amy Gertrude Whewell and father grocer ,Reginald second marriage 1919 and he is a farmer.No sign of him or Annie as a witness but no note he is deceased either.
So yes I think it is him and he lied about his age.
