Can anyone please find this family in 1851, the name is Beetham I think, although it's mis-transcribed in 1861...... but it's Beetham in 1871 and they are in London.
I'm trying to find the maiden name of the widow Margaret (I'm hoping it's Gibson) but I can't find a marriage before 1837 for just 'Beetham'.

There are a few Beethom events on Freebmd but none which fit this lot and no Balthoms at all.

Can't find Clara's birth ref in the indexes.

ahhh she was a Dixon by the looks of it ..... as an aunt ....she's the mother's sister not the fathers as I thought.

has a Beetham family, living in Kendal, parents Wm & Margaret with daughter Isabella born Cartmel,Lancs, which is where your 1861 daughters Margaret, Mary and Agnes say they are born. Must be related?

Yes I noticed that Nell ..... I'm not too bothered about the Beethams really... Two of her nephews were staying with her in 1871 ..Gibson boys .... belonging to my family and I was wondering how she was an aunt.

It seems that after there father died (thomas Gibson) they went to stay with their mother's (nee Dixon) sister...after her fella died.

thanks for your help .....
