Note on Husband: Arthur ALEFOUNDER (1) - shared note

Arthur and Elizabeth were married in the presence of John Sweetappel and Charles House (?) [Latter's surname difficult to read].

 

June 1824, Living in Carnaby Street Westminster

 

In 1841 the family were living at 4 Tabernacle Place, Shoreditch.

[HO107/789/10/6]

Note on Husband: Arthur ALEFOUNDER (2)

1851 Census: Thus far the family haven't turned upin the 1851 census. [2008]

 

Checked the whole of Tabernacle Walk for the 1851 censisus (2011). No Alefounders to be found. It appears that Tabernacle Place was actually in Tabernacle Walk.

 

Alfred Alefounder gives his address as "Tabernacle Walk" on his marriage registration for 13 September 1852, and Mary Ann Alefounder gave her address as 4 Tabernacle Place when her daughter Emma Lowson Alefounder was baptised on 28th July 1850.

 

It is reasonable to suppose therefore that the Alefounder family were still living at Tabernacle Place / Walk when the 1851 census was taken on 30th March 1851, but somehow were missed from the census.

 

[I believe there is a section of this census missing]

Note on Husband: Arthur ALEFOUNDER (3)

Census says he was born in Guildford, Surrey. Thus far no record of this has been found:

 

No Baptism in Holy Trinity, Guildford Baptismal registers 1558 - 1812.

Note on Wife: Elizabeth NICHOLSON (1) - shared note

The photo shows the interior of St George's Hanover Square where Arthur and Elizabeth were married.

Note on Wife: Elizabeth NICHOLSON (2)

Can't find her in 1881 census - this is the closest and needs checking in the original:
