Florence Ann Conduct born c.1870

Postby meekhcs » Sun Jul 01, 2018 3:18 pm

Hello Everyone

The birth registration for the above Lady eludes me.

She was born in 1870, possibly late 1869, to William Conduct and Amelia Mary Matthews in Meonstoke Hampshire, which is part of the Droxford Registration District. All her brothers and sisters, either side of her birth, were also born in Meonstoke.

Conduct is a name that has many variations Conduit, Condie,Condic, Condale, Cundick, to name but a few and there were several Families of the same name in the area.

I have found her in the census records from 1871 onwards, her marriage to John Rye 15 Nov 1890 in Meonstoke, where her sister was a witness, and subsequent records after her marriage.

Her Father William Conduct is one of my gt gt Grandfather's and I have researched the Family very thoroughly, but her birth eludes me.

I know some of you cannot resist a challenge so happy hunting!!

Hi
1939 has Flora A Rye born 4 Feb 1870
Living Flint Cottage, Chichester area.
Not sure that date helps with finding a birth reg!
Death of Flora Ann Rye, March qtr 1940, Chichester. Age 69
No baptism in Meonstoke?

If that is correct then you would hope to see a birth reg in March 1870, presumably in Droxford.
It looks like there were 25 births registered that quarter in the North Meon sub-district, which covered Meonstoke, the entries are on pages 133-135 in the GRO index (vol. 2c).

There's some indication that Flora Rye might have died in mid February 1940, can't be totally sure, going on that date of birth it would have made her just turned 70.

No where near Meonstoke, but mothers name is Mathews and given the variability of the surname that you show it might be worth a little research

CANDLIN, FLORENCE. Mothers maiden name MATTHEWS
Order GRO Reference: 1870 J Quarter in WELLINGTON (SALOP) UNION Volume 06A Page 800

Hello Ian

Thanks for looking at this.

Using Ancestry, I looked at all the births recorded in the Droxford Reg Dist by putting Droxford as the place born, and "volume 2c" in the key word box for the years 1869-1871. Each year contained approx 350 entries and nothing jumped out.There was a Florence and a Flora but the surnames meant nothing to me.

Incidently I have found the same problem for Flora's aunt, Rose Matthews, sister of Flora's mother Amelia Mary I referred to in my first post, who, according to the1861 census, was eight months old when the census was taken.This would define her birth as July/August 1860 but have found nothing. I applied the same principle using Ancestry as I did for Flora.

Conclusions:-
1.They were never registered
2. Their registrations never made it to the GRO Index. But how can you check this?
3. They were "adopted" into my Family and given different names to their birth names.

I am going home in September to spend a couple of days in Winchester Records Office and will seeif I can find any clues.

Thanks Woodchal but I have traced Florence Candlin in the 1871 census and found her parents marriage and she is not mine.
