    Whitcombs!

    Ray,

    Am more confused than ever now. Have just looked at the Family Search site and there is a Charles Whitcomb married to Martha Long in Alverstoke 0n30/8/1797

    Children listed to them are
    Martha Whitcomb 31/5/1800
    George Whitcomb 6/6/ 1806
    Henrietta Whitcomb 3/8/1804
    Charles Benjamin Whitcomb 7/6/1835!!
    Richard Whitcomb 12/9/1802

    I just doesn't add up!! Your Whitcombs are everywhere at all times in Alverstoke.

    Will scan the baptism image off to you this evening.

    Lesley

    Wow, same here!
    Studying my notes, and a bit of calculation, I came up with the this scenario:


    Charles Whitcomb born about 1778 according to Alverstoke burial records.(Knightroots)
    Martha (Long?) born about 1781 according to Alverstoke burial records. (Knightroots)

    Same Charles Whitcomb marries Martha Long about 1797 in Alverstoke. (Family Search)
    Charles would have been 19 years and Martha 16 years - possible.

    Children follow:
    Martha 3/5/1800 - possible
    George 6/6/1806 - possible
    Henrietta 3/8/1804 - possible
    Richard 12/9/1802 - possible

    Charles Benjamin 7/6/1835 !!!!!????? not very possible Martha would have been 54!
    and Charles Benjamin got married in 1848 (GRO index) - at 13! I think not! (That would have set 'Tongues Wagging in Gosport!!!!!!
    According to census returns for Charles Benjamin for 1851 and 1881 he was born about 1816.
    So perhaps Charles B was a 'late' addition to the family? I suspect the 1835 is a typo, should be 1815?

    I did find a Martha Whitcomb in an Alverstoke 1851 census, she was 46 years/unmarried - born 1805 - so could be Martha 3/5/1800 as above?

    I also found in an 1841 census a Martha Whitcomb born 178, this time in Portsea.
    This could be Charles's wife? but I couldn't find Charles anywhere. Note he died in 1845. (GRO index)

    All this leaves 'my' George Whitcomb, born about 1780, out in the cold? However he is of the same generation as Charles (the elder), born about 1778, so they possibly could be brothers???

    All this started up because I wanted to know what became of my Grandfather! Found he died in Canada in 1955, now I'm 'bogged' down in 1800's Alverstoke!!

    Looking forward to the latest baptism scan. I can't remember if I ever asked you to look for a baptism record for Walter Whitcomb - my actual great grandfather?
    He was born to Thomas and Mary Whitcomb in Alverstoke, March 1860 (GRO index).
    It would be nice to add to my family records, no rush though.

    Ray, I have the baptism record of Walter Whitcomb. Are you sure I haven't already scanned it to you? If not, let me know and I will see if I can scan it the right way up this time, not like I scanned the last one to you!! LOL

    I've looked at your emails, and yes you did tell me that you'd got Walter's baptism + his sister Alice's.

    You did send me the Marriage of Thomas Whitcomb & Mary Bridget Malone, and also the baptism of Mary Bridget Malone - but I cannot find Walters baptism record (or Alice's).

    So, yes, please could you email these.

    I have done the Free BMD search for Whitcomb(e) at Alverstoke + a few other places. A lot of them I can trace, but as one gets close to the 1837 lower limit things get a bit difficult - no census etc! Parish records to the rescue!

    Hi Lesley,

    Is it possible to do a lookup of a christening at Saint Marys Portsea for a John Myers Montgomery? Not 100% sure of the date only know the year was 1806.

    Thanks in advance...

    Deb. Sorry but I don't do Portsea Look ups, only Gosport/Alverstoke.

    I think though, that there is somebody else on the site that does do Portsea. Can't remember who it is though. Maybe someone else can tell you

    Hello Ann E. Welcome to FTF!!

    Obviously at the moment, snow and ice stops play but will certainly have a look for the marriage of George and May when I can get out of the house again!! Been in for the third day now and am climbing the walls!!

    Will be in touch again when the weather improves. Keep checking back on the site as I will look for you as soon as I am able.

    Keep warm

    Lesley,

    Back again about the Whitcomb families in Alverstoke / Gosport!

    When, hopefully, the weather improves and one can venture out safely (been the same here - getting fed up with digging snow and ice!), please could you look into the following Baptisms:

    Having traced my line back to George Whitcomb (1774 to 1856), Carpenter of Clayhall married to Mary ??? a Schoolmistress, I wonder if a Baptism is registered for him? This, hopefully, would provide his Parents names. Also who was Mary? She was from Portsea according to the census, but they married in Gosport.

    The other Whitcomb line , that with Charles B Whitcomb in it, may have little or no connection with my Family? However as a final look could you see if there is a Baptism for Charles Benjamin's Father, Charles Whitcomb (1795 ??? to 1845), married to Martha ???. As above his Parents names may provide a further clue?

    I suspect going back further than this (1770's) may be very problematic as many records seem to have degraded to the point of illegibility? So I think this would provide a 'suitable' cut off point?

    Ray
