Henry Richard Rosewarne: England and Wales Census 1891: Transcription

Published: January 10, 2017    Last modified: February 16, 2017

While conducting research for my previous post, I as usual sidetracked, this time on the family name of Rosewarne. I was tracing descendants of my ggg grandparents Thomas ROSEWARNE 1823-1895 and Emily ROSEWARNE (née Emily GREAVES 1832-Deceased) through various England and Wales censuses and parish records, though as usual, my research culminated in more confusion.

While carrying out on-line research I make text notes of any snippets of information that I think may be of use in future research. Many of these notes are just 'cut'n'pastes' and usually attached as text notes linked to individuals and families recorded in my family history software. They become quite disorganised and a few years down the line, often become nothing more than 'cryptic clues'.

Yesterday I spent quite a while checking some of the notes I had made regarding my ROSEWARNE line and comparing them to more recent research. I will publish a separate article outlining more recent research of my ROSEWARNE line. Meanwhile I will publish my transcription of the England and Wales Census 1891 for the household of Henry Richard ROSEWARNE 1859-Deceased:

This census record shows Emily ROSEWARNE (née Emily GREAVES 1832-Deceased) is now living in the household of her son Henry Richard ROSEWARNE 1859-Deceased, though unless my maths is really poor her given age of 67 years and her birth year of 1832 do not tally. Interestingly her husband Thomas ROSEWARNE 1823-1895 is not recorded so I assume he is now dead though I have his death as being 1895. More research required.

There is no record of Henry Richard's wife and since I have yet to carry out any serious research of Henry Richard, I do not as yet have a record of marriage. Again more research required.

A search online for 'Rosewarne' provided a link to the 'Rosewarne Genealogy Page' which includes the 'Rosewarne Family Database'.

Though I have not had the time to browse all this site I did find the following marriage:
Thomas 31 Jul 1851 Emily GREAVES Rotherham YKS

I cannot yet be certain this is the marriage I am looking for but thanks to the small number of Rosewarnes in the Sheffield area I think there is a good possibility the maiden name of Emily ROSEWARNE is 'GREAVES'.

Further research records the birth place of Emily GREAVES 1832-Deceased' as Harthill, Rotherham, Yorkshire. The record of her marriage in 1851 to Thomas ROSEWARNE shows Thomas to be one Thomas ROSEWARD; undoubtedly this should be ROSEWARNE.

For those researching the surname 'Rosewarne', the 'Rosewarne Genealogy Page' is an extremely useful resource and includes 'pdf' files for download.

2012-02-07 A rather belated thank you to Vic Rosewarne for dropping by and leaving a comment regarding his 'Rosewarne' database and the information regarding Emily GREAVES 1832-Deceased.

2016-11-04 Great to see 'Rosewarne Genealogy Page' is still available, since so many useful family history sites have disappeared.

To Neil Jacklin

I found your web site whilst browsing the web for Rosewarnes. I have have done some research on the Sheffield branch of the Rosewarnes, as they were related to my own branch which settled in Derbyshire. Two two branches descend from two brothers William (Sheffield) and John (Derbyshire).

If you would like the information I have on these families please contact me.

I did try to log on to your web site, but it appears I failed

(By the way I supplied the information on the marriage of Thomas Rosewarne of Sheffield to Emily greaves)

My transcription of the England and Wales Census 1871 for the household of one Thomas ROSEWARNE 1823-1895 reveals the younger Emily ROSEWARNE 1865-1944 age 6 years.

Despite many hours research I am still to find a marriage for Thomas ROSEWARNE 1823-1895 and Emily ROSEWARNE and therefore unable to provide a maiden name for Emily, the wife of Thomas.

I recall my mother saying there are additional children to document over and above those recorded in the Census return.

King Street is still shown on the current map of Sheffield though I doubt this is the same King Street referred to in this census return.

2012-02-07 The probable reason for being unable to find a record of marriage between Thomas ROSEWARNE 1823-1895 and Emily GREAVES 1832-Deceased is that of not using a wild card in my searches. Rose* would have found a marriage between one Thomas ROSEWARD and one Emily GREAVES 1832-Deceased. Live and learn.
