Re: Taggs of London
It is the “Marylebone” in your question which caught my eye because that’s where some of my Taggs moved to, from the Thames Ditton/East Molesey area.
Whether there is any connection I don’t know, but here is some information I have on my Taggs.
My great-grandmother was Elizabeth Louisa Tagg (born East Molesey, Kingston 25/04/1870).Her father was Thomas Tagg (born Thames Ditton 1838) a Waterman in the Thames Ditton/Taggs Island area who married Isobella Lloyd at Trinity Grays, Middx, 30/03/1868.
Elizabeth Louisa Tagg married Thomas W Whittlesey at Marylebone in June 1891.But I don’t know exactly when Elizabeth’s family had moved to Marylebone, and unfortunately I don’t know how many brothers/sisters she had, though we are fairly sure she was not an only child. She was my father’s grandmother, and he remembers her as he was brought up in the family home, 4 Hereford St, Marylebone.
On searching for Elizabeth Louisa Tagg in the 1881 Census, I found that the Census Place was London so they had already moved from Surrey/Molesey by then.It also states that there are 4 related family members living in the household, though I have not had access to the full record.
In the 1901 Census Elizabeth and husband William Whittlesey are recorded as living at 33 Church Street, Marylebone with 4 children, though they subsequently produced a total of 10.
The 1901 Census also records Elizabeth’s father Thomas Tagg (widower, aged 63)now lodging at 30 Carlisle Place Marylebone with Henry Berry and his family.I don‘t know if Thomas Tagg remarried, when his wife Isobella died, or when he died.
On searching for Taggs in the Marylebone area, it seems there were a couple of families at that time, and what makes it difficult is that Thomas was such a popular name!!
Hope this helps and please contact me for further discussion if you think there is a link .Karen Mitchell
