Charles Henry Ward and Georgiana Ward (née Georgiana Allen): England and Wales Census 1901

Published: February 20, 2017    Last modified: February 22, 2017

If my previous post illustrating the vagaries of searching for ancestors proved none too difficult eventually, this next search seemed to take forever.

With reference to this article regarding my great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) and her daughter Georgiana ALLEN 1879-1965, I was curious to know more about Georgiana's family.

BW had provided me with a few clues:

1) Georgiana's husband was one Charles Henry WARD.
2) Georgiana was born at the Union Workhouse, Clarborough (East Retford, Nottinghamshire).
3) In 1896 they were married at the Church of All Saints, Aston-cum-Aughton, Rotherham.
4) Georgiana later used the name Georgina, but the name Eanor on her marriage certificate.
5) The marriage produced 8 children.
6) Hilda WARD was their eldest daughter.

Since they were married 'twixt the 1891 and 1901 England and Wales censuses, I thought it would be none too difficult to find a 1901 census record of this family. How wrong can one be.

'Ward' and 'Allen' are commonly occurring surnames, though Georgiana as a forename is not so commonly occurring. After some fairly simple searches I was not getting too far, so I changed tactic and in the hope of one of them having an unusual forename, I tried to find more of the children. A search of FreeBMD, where after September 1912, the mother's surname is also given, showed quite a few children for 'Ward' + 'Allen', but I could not be certain that they were for this couple.

The main problem was not knowing their place of residence. They had been married at the Church of All Saints, Aston-cum-Aughton, and since Georgiana's mother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) and several of her aunts and uncles lived at nearby Swallownest and their residence at the time of marriage was given as Swallownest, I had to assume they would be resident nearby.

Several hours of searching later I was about to give up, when I decided that they may have moved away from the area. So I decided to gradually broaden my search and changed residence to 'Basford' north Nottinghamshire, an area nearby, but classed then as Nottinghamshire.

While trawling through many, many 'Ward's, I eventually spotted 'Hilda Ward' and the main cause of my difficulties: Charles Henry's name had been abbreviated to 'Chas Hy Ward' ('fuzzy' search was not detecting this) and Georgiana is recorded as 'GE Ward'. Their residence is given as Kiveton, a village about 3 miles east of Swallownest, though in 1901 Kiveton came under the registration district of Worksop, Nottinghamshire.

So another mystery solved, eventually.

Wilfred Jacklin 1926-1926: Died age 6 hours

Published: February 11, 2017    Last modified: February 22, 2017

My great grandparents Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) were both buried at the Orgreave Lane section of Handsworth Cemetery, Sheffield, but as I noted in this article, despite having the plot number I have failed to find their grave.

It crossed my mind that I may have been mistaken about Orgreave Lane and they were actually buried in the graveyard of the Church of Saint Mary, Handsworth, Sheffield. While searching burial records for Daniel and Ziller JACKLIN I came across a burial record for Wilfred JACKLIN 1926-1926 the second child of my grandparents Wilfred JACKLIN 1896-1967 and Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON 1901-1983).

I was aware that within a month of his birth Wilfred died, but the record shows he lived for only 6 hours: so very, very sad.

He is recorded having died at 23 Beighton Road, though to correct the record, this should be 23 Beighton Street (now demolished). He was buried on the 9th of December 1926 at Darnall Cemetery, Sheffield; another cemetery I do not recall visiting.

I have a vague idea of where Darnall Cemetery is located, though Sheffield City Council have a very informative cemeteries website giving all the details. I will endeavour to set aside some time to explore Darnall Cemetery, though having checked on Google Earth, the approximate location of his grave, I do not hold out much hope; the area he was buried looks very much devoid of headstones.

Ziller Jacklin (née Ziller Allen 1858-1949)

This photograph of Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949), my great grandmother, has for quite some time, eluded me .

When a couple of years ago mother was helping identify the myriad of friends and relatives that live in the box of photographs marked 'waiting to be digitised', this one of Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) stuck in my memory. It is the only known photograph of Ziller, unless there are more hiding away in other boxes, in other attics, at other relatives' abodes.

Today I decided to have another go at digitising more of our family's photographic collection in order to at least preserve them for a little while longer. I really believe Ziller did not want to be digitised: having spent an hour sorting through envelopes full of photographs, I eventually found it, and then, on being interrupted by a caller at the door, just as quickly mislaid it again.

I managed to digitise Ziller eventually; she does not look too amused. Though perhaps this is not too much of a surprise given how tough live must have been in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Unfortunately further information regarding this photograph is not available; I have no idea when or where it was taken.

Georgiana Ward (née Georgiana Allen 1879-1965)

Ziller Jacklin (née Ziller Allen 1858-1949)

This information has taken me quite some time to document and publish but at the time it came as quite a surprise:

Through the "Suggest a change" form at Family History Journal I received the following email:

Proposed Change: Ziller ALLEN (I22)
Tree: Jacklin / Ashforth
Link: Ziller ALLEN
Description: Zillah was mother of Georgina 06/03/1879-1965 father not registered. Georgina(eanor) married Charles Henry Ward 1896 Aston parish church Sheffield. Zillah is my G.G.Grandmother.

Basically this email informed me that my grandfather Wilfred Jacklin 1896-1967 had a step sister by the name of Georgina (Georgiana). I immediately phoned my aunt, the daughter of Wilfred Jacklin 1896-1967 and Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON) 1901-1983 and asked if she was aware of this step sister; no she wasn't.

So this opened up a whole new avenue to explore.

I replied to BW and he provided me with a synopsis of Georgiana's family history:
Georgiana known to the family as Georgina married Charles Henry Ward at Aston Parish Church¹ and had 8 children. The eldest daughter had 5 children including the mother of BW.

I sent for Georgiana's birth certificate because Fanny Allen² would have been in her 50s when she was born. I have enclosed copies of birth and marriage
certificates. The name on the marriage certificate is Eanor which is a mystery to the family.

¹ Aston Parish Church is the Church of All Saints, Aston-cum-Aughton, Rotherham, Yorkshire.

² Fanny ALLEN (née Fanny LITTLEWOOD) 1832-1915, the mother of Ziller (Zillah, Zellaby) ALLEN 1858-1949

In the census record shown below, Georgina, or Georgiana ALLEN 1879-1965 is shown to be 2 years old and a grandaughter of John ALLEN 1831-Deceased, though at this time Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949 is living and working at East Drayton, Nottinghamshire, in the the household of George SMITHSON 1830-Deceased.

Family history weekend

Published: February 20, 2012    Last modified: November 20, 2016

Knaith Hall, Knaith

Knaith Hall and the Church of Saint Mary, Knaith, Lincolnshire

This weekend I visited an area of north Lincolnshire associated with my paternal grandmother Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON) 1901-1983. Ivy was born at Upton (Upton-cum-Kexby) in 1901, moved to the village of Marton, eventually marrying Wilfred JACKLIN 1896-1967 at the Church of All Saints, Aston-cum-Aughton, Yorkshire. Sometime later they moved to Beighton Street, Darnall, Sheffield, Yorkshire.

Many of my relatives still live in this area of north Lincolnshire, including 3 cousins from the village of Marton.

Primarily this trip was to try and achieve the following:

  1. Participate in the 'Snowdrop Walk' from Knaith Hall, Knaith, Lincolnshire to The Château at Gate Burton, Lincolnshire.
  2. Scan some of the family photographs archived by my cousin GH.
  3. Visit some of the north Nottinghamshire villages associated with my Jacklin line.

Thanks to my cousins and to some very good weather, I was able to achieve virtually all the goals I had set myself.

Saturday afternoon we took the car and visited some of the villages associated with my family's history including Upton-cum-Kexby and Fillingham, Lincolnshire.  On our return I visited one of my cousins and we sorted through a large box of old photographs where I was pleasantly surprised that we were able to identify many of the people and places. I then spent a few hours scanning the selected photographs and will gradually add them to my 'Gallery'.

Sunday I completed an early morning walk along Littleborough Lane, Marton to the banks of the River Trent, returning by way of Trent Port Road.

I then attended the wonderful 'Knaith Snowdrop Walk' at Knaith Hall, Knaith. The hall was not open to the public except for a small refreshments room but visitors were able to explore the grounds and follow a marked route to The Château at Gate Burton. As if on cue, the snowdrops under their canopy of trees, were looking truly resplendent.

The Church of Saint Mary built alongside Knaith Hall and over looking the River Trent was also open. This is the first time I had visited this church and though it was quite crowded with visitors I was able to take a number of photographs of the interior.

After leaving Knaith we headed off towards the north Nottinghamshire villages of Everton and Harwell. Again these are small villages associated with both my paternal grandmother Ivy JACKLIN (née Ivy DIXON) 1901-1983, my paternal great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN) 1858-1949 and gg grandfather John ALLEN 1831-Deceased of nearby Little Gringley. I particularly wished to visit the Church of the Holy Trinity at Everton, Nottinghamshire.

Finally and in order to photograph the tiny Church of Saint Nicholas we drove to Littleborough, Nottinghamshire. Although I have yet to find a connection between this church and my family, I have always wanted to make a visit. In the graveyard I did find an headstone for one Olive Mary BARLOW and her husband Reuben BARLOW, a family surname associated with this region.

Altogether a splendid weekend.

Notes:
I will gradually publish, over the next few weeks, both the scanned old photographs together with photographs of the churches and villages we visited.

The Château, a National Trust property at Gate Burton, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire is available for holiday bookings through the Landmark Trust.

Albert Allen Barlow: Casualty 902875

Published: January 21, 2010    Last modified: November 18, 2016

Albert Allen BARLOW 1898-1918 was the son of Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 and Harriett BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958), sister of my great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949).

Elizabeth Allen or Elizabeth Smithson?

Published: September 29, 2008    Last modified: February 2, 2017

While checking this earlier article, one of the earliest articles on this website, the name Elizabeth SMITHSON 1879-Deceased caught my eye.

This is my transcription of the England and Wales Census 1881:

FHJ Ref: 002
Census: England and Wales Census 1881
Place: 4 North Street, East Drayton, Nottingham, England
Household: George Smithson

SURNAMEFIRST NAME(S)RELSTATUSSEXAGEOCCUPATIONWHERE BORNREMARKS

AllenZillahSister In LawUFemale22Dom Serv Unemployed (Farm)Little Gringley, Nottinghamshire

These records suggest Jane SMITHSON (née Jane ALLEN 1853-1892) had 2 children, either from a previous marriage or 'out of wedlock'.

I suddenly realised that Elizabeth SMITHSON 1879-Deceased, Jane's daughter presumably from her marriage to George SMITHSON 1830-Deceased, could be the elusive Elizabeth 'Betty' ALLEN.

A search of FreeBMD reveals a death, registered at Retford in March 1892 of one Jane SMITHSON aged 40 years. Elizabeth SMITHSON 1879-Deceased would now be about 12 years of age.

The England and Wales Census 1891 records the following:

FHJ Ref: 007
Census: England and Wales Census 1891
Place: Bradley Yard, Aston With Aughton, Rotherham, Yorkshire
Household: Daniel Jacklin

SURNAMEFIRST NAME(S)RELSTATUSSEXAGEOCCUPATIONWHERE BORNREMARKS
JacklinDanHeadMarriedM28Coal MinerWhaddon, Cambridgeshire,
JacklinZillerWifeMarriedF32Little Gringley, Lincolnshire

To view this table full width please click here.

I conjecture Jane had fallen ill and was unable to care for Elizabeth her youngest child and Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) agreed to 'adopt' her.

A quick search of the England and Wales Census 1901 reveals an Elizabeth SMITHSON aged 22 years living at East Drayton.

Another search of FreeBMD this time for a marriage for Elizabeth SMITHSON reveals several, but the only one in an anticipated locality is registered in December 1909 at Rotherham, Yorkshire. The husbands name could either be Thomas DAVIS or Fred KEIGHLEY.

At this time Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) were probably still living at Swallownest so it could well be Elizabeth SMITHSON 1879-Deceased married at the Church of All Saints at Aston-cum-Aughton which of course is in the registration district of Rotherham.

This is all conjecture and supposition at the moment and the dates, though not exactly what I would expect, are close enough to warrant further research. Since I am unlikely to glean much more from FreeBMD or the England and Wales Census, I will invest in the purchase of the marriage certificate and hope that I can prove my theory.

Aston-cum-Aughton and Treeton: Coal Miners

Published: April 21, 2008    Last modified: February 2, 2017

The England and Wales Census 1891 records 3 of the Allen sisters:

Sarah BUTROID (née Sarah ALLEN 1862-1943)
Hannah CUTTS (née Hannah ALLEN 1856-Deceased)
Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) my great grandmother,

All originally from Little Gringley, Nottinghamshire and all now married and living at Aston-cum-Aughton and nearby Treeton. Their respective husbands are all recorded as coal miners.

I am intrigued as to how the sisters found their way to this area. I conjecture Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) were forced to escape the poverty of living off the land at Little Gringley and seek a slightly more prosperous existence in the employment of the mine owners of the South Yorkshire coalfield. Likewise did the other sisters follow? Did they meet their husbands through the mining community or were they already married?

Daniel had left his home county of Cambridgeshire, presumably to seek work as a navvy on the railways or canals, both of which pass through Retford, Nottinghamshire and very close to Little Gringley.

I really need to study the relevant census information together with marriage certificates and maybe I can better ascertain when they made the transition from agricultural labourer to coal miner.

Elizabeth 'Betty' Allen: Intrigue

Published: April 18, 2008    Last modified: February 2, 2017

Church of All Saints, Aston-cum-Aughton, Rotherham, Yorkshire, England

Church of All Saints, Aston with Aughton, Rotherham, Yorkshire

Recently I was discussing with my mother the news regarding Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958) and Mary BACON (née Mary ALLEN 1871-1951). We were chatting about Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949) and if they ever had visits from other members of the family (Daniel and Ziller moved from Bradley Yard, Swallownest, Yorkshire and lived the rest of their lives at Langley Street, Darnall, Sheffield, Yorkshire). My mother happened to mention that they brought up a young girl known by the name of Betty, and Betty would occasionally visit. Immediately I recalled the census record shown below which records Elizabeth aged 9 and described as a niece; undoubtedly this is Betty.

The England and Wales Census 1891 records the following:

My mother went on to say how in November 1949, Betty attended Ziller's funeral, but my mother could not remember any details regarding her family background.

Was Elizabeth really a niece or maybe a child from another relationship? The mystery and intrigue continues.

Updates:
2008-09-22 This weekend I spoke with my aunt and she understands that after Betty's father died Betty was 'adopted' by Daniel JACKLIN 1862-1953 and Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949). Apparently her mother was already dead. On getting married Betty moved to Bury, Lancashire.

Photograph courtesy the family of Henry and Harriet Barlow

While I was busy replying to the contributor of my previous post I was contacted by a grandson of Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958), another sister of my great grandmother Ziller JACKLIN (née Ziller ALLEN 1858-1949). He has provided me with a great deal of information regarding the descendants of Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958) together with permission to publish this photograph of Harriet taken about 1918.

I have added the information to my GEDCOM which greatly extends my family tree along yet another branch.

Here are a few brief details of Harriet and Henry:

Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958 was born at Little Gringley, Clarborough, Nottinghamshire in 1887 and married Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 on the 23rd July 1903 at the Registry Office in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 was born at Askham, Nottinghamshire in 1870. Henry and Harriet had six children, Harriet died on the 30th January 1958 at Shirebrook, Derbyshire and Henry died March 1959 also at Shirebrook, Derbyshire. They are buried at Shirebrook Cemetery, Shirebrook, Derbyshire.

Notes:
Harriet BARLOW (née Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958) gave birth to a son, Albert ALLEN 1898-1918 (England and Wales Census 1901 - born 1898 in Elkesley, Nottinghamshire) but did not marry Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 until 23 July 1903. Army records describe Albert as Albert Allen BARLOW, so it appears that he took the BARLOW family name after the marriage. Albert was killed in World War 1. - Courtesy the family of Henry BARLOW 1870-1959 and Harriet ALLEN 1877-1958.

2010-01-21 Albert Allen BARLOW 1898-1918 was killed in action, France, 1918, World War I.
