Marriage certificate for Henry Livermore and Mary Ann Beals is dated 5th May 1866 at Exeter Register Office.He was 24 and a batchelor and she was 23 and a spinster.His occupation was a butcher and she was a domestic servant.The place of residence for Henry was Preston Street, Exeter and Mary Anns was Rack Street, Exeter.She had no fathers name but Henrys was Thomas Livermore (deceased), occupation Hackney Coach Driver.The witnesses were Charles Alford and William E Steer.
A cousin paid for research of Thomas Livermore in 1999 and the folliwng were his findings:
There are no entries of either name, Henry Livermore or Mary Ann Fielding, in Okehampton Street for 1871.However the 1861 census reveals that there is an Eliza Livermore, head, widow, aged 54, laundress, born Budleigh Salterton living in Okehampton Street and a Henry Livermore, son of above, aged 12, butcher, born Exeter.
The 1871 census for Alphington Street, Exeter reveals: Elizabeth Livermore (widow), 65, charwoman, born Budleigh Salterton - Henry, 29, butcher, born Exeter - Mary Ann, 28, born Exeter St. Johns and Henry (son), 5, born St. Thomas.NOTE - Elizabeth appeared as last item on one page, Henry as first item on the next.It is not clear whether they were living in the same house.
The researcher also stated "Mary Ann White/Beals is yet another one who seems not to know who her father was!I have had a quick look at the 1865 Electoral Register for the Preston St/Rack St. area, but it shows up neither White nor Beals.She of course wouldn't have had the vote, but I hoped she might have a family there.
He also did a search of the 1837-45 baptisms and found: 14.9.1839 William John, son of Thomas and Eliza Livermore of Cheke St. Flyman 12.4.1844 Maria, daughter of Thomas and Eliza Livermore
I presume the above are in the St Sidwell area but am unsure from the researchers letter.See what you make of this information and let me know your findings.
