Hi. I'm looking for any information about or links to the Marsdens who lived in Lewisham, Kent, England.
I have the following information:
Frederic(k) William Marsden (Jun 1819 - 20 Mar 1870) (my 3 greats grandfather) married Sarah Ann(e) Tulloch (15 Apr 1818 or Dec 1823 - Sep 1918) on 26 Nov or 25 Jan 1841 in West Hackney, England. Frederick William (known later as "FW Marsden") was Christened in St Mary, Lewisham, Kent, England in 17 Jun 1819.
Frederick William's parents were Sythy/Lythy Horn(e) Allen (could have been known as "Sythy Horn"), and "Mark Marsden Esq, RN". Frederick William was reportedly their fifth son. I believe his brother was Alfred John Marsden (chr 10 Oct 1822), and a sister was Caroline Sythy Marsden, who married William Dancaster on 3 Feb 1842 in West Hackney. They lived at 14 Kingsland Green, West Hackney.
Witnesses at FW's wedding included Mark Eagles Marsden (possibly another brother of FW's). I believe a George Eagles Marsden also lived around this time, but do not know his relationship to FW.
I assume the RN means Royal Navy. Does anyone know if there are Navy records that could be checked to find out more about him?
Thanks for any help or info anyone can provide. Steve
