Clary Craggy born 1803 in Great Yarmouth.

Postby midshipman » Wed Jun 26, 2019 9:29 am

I am trying to discover what happened to Clary Craggy born 25th November 1803 in Great Yarmouth. He came from a long line of Clary Craggy's, his grandfather Clary Craggy 1774-1818 was a Yarmouth boatman, rower to the King and father Clary Craggy 1774-1830 also of Yarmouth.
Clary born 1803 married Lucy Brecknell in Yarmouth 17th October 1832. Lucy already had at least 2 children.
Sadly I have been unable to discover what happened to them afterwards, can any member please guide me.

You mention Lucy had at least two daughters. Was Sarah Brecknell, born 1832, one of them?
If so, could this be her in the 1851 census?

Thank you Mo. Yes Sarah was daughter of Lucy Brecknell and born before Clary and Lucy married although I suspect she was his daughter. Sarah married Edmund Thomas Sowells in Great Yarmouth 1856.

Hi John - it's odd that Clary and Lucy are nowhere to be found after their 1832 marriage. Have you been able to trace Elizabeth, the other daughter? I wonder why Sarah is living with her aunt in 1851? And with her marriage, does she indicate Clary is living or deceased?

I have a full family tree for the daughter Elizabeth. Occasionally Brecknell is found as Bracknell later in life. Found no clue as to the whereabouts of Clary and Lucy.

Thank you Avaline. Both of Lucy's known 2 children, Elizabeth and Sarah Brecknell, were born out of wedlock and before her marriage to Clary. I wonder if they were "farmed" out to friends/relatives.

Hi John - I know this doesn't directly help with your search for Clary and Lucy, but this link may be of some assistance. https://www.archives.norfolk.gov.uk/hel ... t-yarmouth

As the website states: "Please note that the parish registers were badly damaged in the Second World War and some were too fragile to be filmed". As such, I'm wondering if any death records for the couple (if pre-1837) are unavailable online? This would explain no appearances in the census reports.

There was a James Duck marrying a Sarah Craggy in Harwich, Essex in 1823.
