Note on Husband: Alfred DEAKIN (1) - shared note

Married in the presence of Charles Bell and Agnes Ann Parker, [after whom, presumably, they named their daughter].

 

At the time of his marriage, Alfred was living at 4 Fountain Street.

 

In 1881 Census the family is mis-transcribed as "Daker" not Deakin.

Note on Husband: Alfred DEAKIN (2)

As of 2007 I have not found an index reference for a death certificate for Alfred Deakin.

 

His son, Alfred was born in Dudley in 1882, and he describes his father as deceased on his marriage certificate of 1906

 

His wife Lucy has her first daughter (Mary Deakin Owen known as Polly) by her next partner, John Owen, in 1888.

 

I have not found a marriage for Lucy Deakin and John Owen in the GRO Indexes between 1882 and 1888 either.

 

Assuming they did actually marry, one would therefore presume Alfred Deakin must have died between 1882 and 1888.

Family history at Manchester Register Office

 

Manchester Register Office describe some ways that you can trace your family history in Manchester.

 

Family History at Manchester Archives and Local Studies

 

Manchester Archives and Local Studies has a wide range of resources available for those who wish to trace their family history.

 

The only Alfred Deakin buried in Manchester listed on this website whose death cannot be found on the Free BMD site is one who was buried in 1888.

 

This burial need checking to find if it is "my" Alfred - it would fit in with his "widow's" marriage in about 1888 to John Owen (according to her entry in the 1911 census) - although a record for that marriage has yet to be found.

LOST or STOLEN, on Friday July 30, a Black Spaniel BITCH, four months old, white on the head, breast and toes. - if the Finder will take her to Alfred deakin, Butcher, Coventry Road, he shall be Rewarded. c.2001

Note on Wife: Lucy COLES (1) - shared note

Lucy was living at 318 City Road at the time of her marriage to Alfred Deakin.

 

Gravestone at Ruyton XI Towns Independent Chapel Cemetery - seen, photographed and noted by Graham Hoadly November 2002:

 

"In loving memory of Lucy Owen who was called home June 2nd 1931 aged 77 years No more pain"

Note on Wife: Lucy COLES (2)

The following is an intriguing quote from "The Shropshire Village Book" published in 1988 by the Shropshire Federation Of Women's Institutes - in the section referring to Weston Lullingfields:

"Within living memory a tailor used to sit cross legged in his cottage and a woman and her two daughters ran a laundry at Dumpling Hall - named from the round tied-up bundles of washing."

Could this have been John Owen with Lucy, Agnes and Mary?

Note on Wife: Lucy COLES (3)

Recollections of Hilda. Lucy was married to her mother's Uncle John Owen.

"As a child Hilda went to Kinnerley regularly for holidays, staying with her Aunty Becky (my great grandmother). She told me that they often went to visit Aunty Lucy and Uncle John walking over the fields - about four or five miles (which, she said was nothing in those days!!!). I'm not sure of the geography but I guess Ruyton XI Towns is about that distance from Kinnerley. She said that Aunty Becky and Aunty Lucy were very good friends and used to laugh a lot together. Her most vivid memory of this house is of an immaculately polished red tiled floor!! My aunty believes that Lucy and John were married. She can't remember any children, but at that time Mary and John would be adults (my aunt was born in 1909). She told me she could remember someone called 'Polly' from there but wasn't sure of the connection. I didn't realise that Mary Deakin Owen was also known as Polly. My aunty cannot remember Agnes in connection with Lucy, but does have a vague recollection of an 'Ag'at the post office - is this the same person? "47

Note on Wife: Lucy COLES (4)

I have not found a marriage for Lucy Deakin and John Owen in the GRO Indexes betwen 1882 and 1888.

 

Assuming they did actually marry, one would therefore presume Alfred Deakin must have died between 1882 and 1888.

 

According to 1911 Census Lucy says she was married for 23 years therefore making her marriage to John Owen in about 1888

Text From Source: I am the grand daughter of Emma Leona Kate Coles. She and the family lived at colesberg in Arnside ,which is a small village on Morcambe Bay.The Coles name still continues through the line from Robert.

I have sent you two photos of Kate Coles . The one of her wedding has three of the Coles women on, Kate who is getting married her mother who is the lady behind the one at the front and the brides maid on the left is Margaret Elizabeth Coles who is Berthas daughter. Albert F took over his fathers building business and built quite a lot of houses in Arnside.My father worked for him for a short while, you will have guessed from the house name Colesberg that this was the family home.Bertha married Peter Craig, Cissey never married, Louie married a Coulston and their youngest son was killed flying a glider into Holland. Albert married but only had a daughter so that the remaining Coles come from Roberts line.He married twice, his first wife died of cancer and he married her nurse.

Text From Source: Hi Graham
First of all, thank you so much for the photos you sent - they are great. Secondly, apologies for not getting back to you sooner - things have been hectic here what with school holidays etc. Anyway, I went to visit Aunty Hilda yesterday and we spent about four hours discussing 'the family!'. Ive made loads of notes and need to get them into some sort of order BUT what I can tell you is that my aunty does remember Lucy. My aunty Hilda was born and brought up in Whitby, Cheshire. She was the youngest of 7 children (I think there were 7, I'll confirm that later) born to Hannah Owens and Henry Pugh (also of Kinnerely). As a child Hilda went to Kinnerley regularly for holidays, staying with her Aunty Becky (my great grandmother). She told me that they often went to visit Aunty Lucy and Uncle John walking over the fields - about four or five miles (which, she said was nothing in those days!!!). I'm not sure of the geography but I guess Ruyton XI Towns is about that distance from Kinnerley. She said that Aunty Becky and Aunty Lucy were very good friends and used to laugh a lot together. Her most vivid memory of this house is of an immaculately polished red tiled floor!! My aunty believes that Lucy and John were married. She can't remember any children, but at that time Mary and John would be adults (my aunt was born in 1909). She told me she could remember someone called 'Polly' from there but wasn't sure of the connection. I didn't realise that Mary Deakin Owen was also known as Polly. My aunty cannot remember Agnes in connection with Lucy, but does have a vague recollection of an 'Ag'at the post office - is this the same person? I have got a few photos which, after they're scanned I'll send to you (unfortunately, none of Lucy, but there is another box to be retrieved from my aunty's attic, so fingers crossed for something more:o)) My aunty said something very interesting about an Aunty Mary who had 22 children, but only 21 survived!!!! I'm yet to work who she was, but, i think she was Hilda's Great Aunt. Have you heard of this woman?
My immediate family have no recent connection to Kinnerley. My grandfather George left Kinnerley aged 16 and came to Whitby to live with his Aunty Hannah and Uncle Henry. He settled here, marrying my grandmother, Lilian Jones. My mother Jacqueline Owen was born in Whitby, in 1934 and she was an only child. My grandfather was one of 8 children. William (who ended up living in Whitchurch, Shropshire), Gladys (the only daughter) who was adopted by her spinister Aunt, Sarah Owens and they lived in Worcester; George, my grandfather; Arthur also settled in Whitby; John worked on a farm in Oswestry later marrying and settling in Whitby too; Edwin disappeared to Australia after getting a local girl pregnant - she had twins!!!(more scandal) he turned up many years later living in Ross on Wye; Harold joined the army and ended up settling in Rochdale; and Harry joined the airforce and settled in London. My mum is in touch, and close to, most of her cousins so we do have quite an extended Owen family.
A little bit of info about me now. Im married to Stuart and we have three children Sara who's 19 and at St Andrews uni; Owen who's 17 and waiting to apply to join the police; and Freya whos 11 and obviously still at school. I'm a midwife and Stuart runs the family business with my brother, David. David has two girls Hannah and Lauren. My sister Stephanie has two girls too, Amelia and Evie.
It'd be nice to know a little more about you too!! Anyway, I will write again soon when hopefully we'll have a bit more info to share.
Take care. Viv.
Graham Hoadly.
