William Jones born 1823 Lincs

Postby LizA77 » Wed Apr 22, 2020 7:31 am

I’m struggling to find William Jones born in Owston 1823 who married Elizabeth Clement and had 2 sons Charles 1848 and John William 1852. In the 1851 census they are living in Grimsby but there’s no trace of them after that. Where did they go? I can find their sons in later censuses but not the parents. I did see a William Jones jailed around 1860 but not sure if it’s my William. Any help much appreciated. Thanks!

Age slightly out, but Freereg has a William Jones baptised Owston 26 Jun 1826, parents William (a labourer) & Mary - is this him?

Still can’t find him on a census beyond 1851 though

In 1861 Charles Henry 11 & John William 9 are on the ship "Samuel". With them is Duke Woollass (?), the Master of the ship, and Elizabeth his 'wife' born Laceby. Elizabeth's age is wrong (43), but could she be Elizabeth Jones?

I think it is her!

In 1871 she is with Duke (Marmaduke) at Holy Trinity, Hull, and they have a son named James. This looks like his birth registration:

WOOLLASS, JAMES mmn CLEMET
GRO Reference: 1862 S Quarter in HULL Volume 09D Page 217

Forgot to add, Elizabeth is 44 & born Laceby.

So that research isn't repeated, this family was discussed in August 2019: post67518.html#p67518

Ooooh, interesting! Has to be them! Thanks so much! I guess William must have died between 1851 and 1861.

Why would the children be on the ship?

Liz - see my post above (2 post above yours). Perhaps the 2019 thread can help answer your questions.
