Thread: Charlotte Carr

  1. #1

    Charlotte Carr

    I have a birth for a Charlotte Carr in the Scottish Old Parish registers of Perth. Born to Duncan Carr and Catherine Brewster on August 9, 1820.

    I am trying to determine if this is the same Charlotte Carr that married John Honey on Dec. 10, 1839 at St Martins Parish.

    This marriage of Charlotte Carr and John Honey produced a Charlotte Honey born 1844 in Scotland.



    Does anyone have ideas to confirm that the infant Charlotte Carr in 1920 is the same one that married John Honey in 1839?

    Have you looked at the marriage cert in 1839? If so, doesn't it give the parents names?

    The Charlotte Carr I'm following married John Honey. I haven't seen a marriage certificate for her, but I imagine the wedding would have been 1840ish.

    I guess this means it's possible that the 1820-born Charlotte Carr I have is the one that married Drew instead of Honey?

    In the 1841 census, Charlotte (Carr) Honey's age suggests she was born in 1820 or 1821, like the Charlotte in my original post.

    Oh, I see what you mean. I have just had a look at it and it doesn't give parents names.

    Don't forget though that on the 1841 census ages of adults were supposed to be rounded down to the nearest multiple of 5 so if Charlotte's age was shown as 20 she could have been anywhere between 20 and 24 and so perhaps born as early as 1816

    There is something really odd. There is only one birth showing for a Charlotte Carr between 1815 and 1822. In 1841 there is a Charlotte Carr living with David Drew - aged 20 born Perthshire -

    AND a Charlette (probable mistranscription) Honey living with John Honey and baby Catherine aged 1 - http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin...&rhSource=1076

    The only way to find out the parents of this Charlotte is (as she married before 1855 in Scotland) to find her death record which should (unless you are unfortunate or she died before 1855) give the names of her father and mother. Do you have her death?
