    Charles Pearcy’s birth certificate shows he was born on 12 Sep 1839, at Church Lane, Mitcham and that his mother Catherine’s maiden name was Danton.

    Joseph Pearcy, Age: 72, Head, born Mitcham, Surrey. Labourer
    Catherine Pearcy, Age 73, Wife, born, Margate, Kent. Seamstress.

    I have both Joseph and Catherine's Death Certificates and Joseph's surname is spelt Piercy! Catherine died 1888 and Joseph died 1889


    My hubby is a direct descendant of Joseph Pearcy Jnr who married Eliza Rollins in 1865 in Battersea.

    My problem is....I can't find a likely birth registration for him and I can't find a marriage for his parents Joseph Pearcy & Catherine Danton. No trace of a marriage in London so I'm guessing they married in Kent.


    So..anyone up for a challenge????

        I had dismissed that one because I was looking for a Birth Registered in Mitcham. Had a look at Croydon Reg Districts see below.

        CROYDON REGISTRATION DISTRICT
        • Registration County : Surrey (1837-1965), Greater London (from 1965).
        • Created : 1.7.1837.
        • Sub-districts : Coulsdon, Croydon, Croydon Central, Croydon North, Croydon South, Mayday, Mitcham, North Croydon, Penge, South Croydon, West Croydon
        GRO volumes : IV (1837-51), 2a (1852-1946), 5G (1946-65), 5A (1965-74), 11 (1974-92).

        Am I reading this correctly that Volume no. 4 (IV) includes Mitcham for an 1841 Birth?

          Mitcham was a sub-district of Croydon, not a district of its own. You could contact Croydon registrars and ask them to check the sub-district for you before issuing the certificate.
          I am a professional researcher, and ex- deputy registrar, based in Buckinghamshire - please contact me for any help/advice or research via PM or my website www.chalfontresearch.co.uk

                            I've purchased hundreds of certificates over the years and only got a handful wrong, so I thought is was worth the risk!

                              It could well be her..nothing else comes up, but saying that I still can't find a marriage for Joseph Pearcy & Catherine Danton. Maybe they never married!!!
                              There are quite a few Danton's on the 1841 Census just a pity I don't know for sure who her parents were.

                                    Went back to the Dixon part and Thomas and Jane and looking at baptisms and where the Danton's might be, there's a Thomas and Jane in Margate with son John.

                                        There's a baptism for a daughter of William and Catherine but I can't see them again.

                                        Don't know if it helps at all
