Re: George Millward married to Ann Abbott Warwick, England
Thanks for getting in touch.My email address is [email protected]
I don't know, is hte answer.All I have is the baptisms from the Spa Fields chapel in Clerkenwell where it states the baptisms of the children of George and Ann Millward (sometimes spelled Milward), but evidently the same couple.The IGI has these baptisms too, and they may have been baptised twice over as the Spa Fields chapel was a non-conformist chapel owing allegiance to "The Countess of Huntingdon's connexion".There is no full address or trade given to George in any of the baptisms, however the designation: St Andrew's Holborn or St James', Clerkenwell is given for the abode.
My ancestors were Alexander Hassell and his wife Hannah, nee Millward, for most of their married life they lived in Baltic St in the Reg Dist of St Luke's, central London (just N of where the Barbican Arts Centre is now if you are familiar with London).The following is an excerpt of my 'work-in-progress' Word doc tree:
Alexander (b.c.1814 - d.1884 aged 70) married 1stly 23/11/1834 at St Pancras, Euston Rd Hannah Millward.She was aged 36 in the 1851 census and born St Andrew‘s, Holborn.She gave ‘her mark’ in lieu of signature at the marriage, showing illiteracy.Both Alexander and Hannah are recorded as ‘of this parish’ in the marriage entry.Hannah Hassell died 27/02/1854 at 27 Baltic St, St Lukes, (ref. 1b/423) aged 39.Her death certificate states she died of consumption (Phthisis pulmonatis, 17 weeks), her husband was present at the death.All Alexander’s children are by Hannah.The witnesses to the marriage were Thomas Hale and Elizabeth Hale (her mark)(In the 1851 census there is a household at 29 Baltic St, with Ann Millward, aged 67 a widow and head of household, born in Suffolk with her son John Millward, aged 29, unmarried, born Holborn and a scale maker (?sp).Could they be Hannah’s mother and brother?The baptisms for Lady Huntingdon’s Chapel, Spa Fields, St Luke’s give a baptism of Hannah Milward (on ‘l’ on 03/07/1816 and born 03/05/1816 in the parish of St James, Clerkenwell to George and Anne Milward; the same couple George and Ann Millward (2 ‘l’s) baptise a John and a George and as Milward, (one ‘l’ ) baptise a Henry and a Thomas).
I know of no connection with Warwick.However the 1851 census gives Ann Millward's birthplace as Suffolk.
Looking forward to your theories and anything else you may have - Thanks, Richard.
