  • Name Thomas BURRUS 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born Abt 1823  Sheerness, Sheppey, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • From the 1841 census where shown as aged 17.
      I am guessing that Thomas was the son of Robert, with whom he was living at the time of the 1841 census.
      His age in the 1851 to 1871 censuses is given as 31, 41 and 51 i.e. suggesting born about 1820. Whether or not correct, it suggests a date inline with the death.
    Gender Male 
    Occupation Blacksmith in the Dock Yard 
    H. M. Dockyard, Sheerness, Sheppey, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Died Mar Q 1874  Whitechapel Reg Dist, London, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • Between 1871 and 1881, as in the 1871 census but his wife shown as a widower in 1881.
      No sign of a death that could be his on Sheppey (no death of a Thomas with a surname anything remotely like Burrus), two occurred elsewhere between 1871 and 1881, one in West Bromwich RD, this is the more likely:
      GRO ref: BURRUS, Thomas q1 1874 aged 54 Whitechapel RD 1c 273
      (no sign of a Thomas Burrus in the Whitechapel area in censuses, that adds weight that the death could be this Thomas)

    Married
    • Probably the Robert who married Sarah Dennis in Sittingbourne in March 1801.
      There was a Sarah Swiferton DENNIS baptised in Sittingbourne in 1785, also a Sarah Dennes baptised in Teynham in 1779 and a Sarah Dynes baptised in Challock in 1780, as well as other's further afield (best match on date from age at death was a Sarah Dennis baptised 1783 in Maidstone). The couple who married in 1801 had daughters
      Mary Ann - baptised 7 Jun 1801 at Sittingbourne, St Michael  (probably the Mary Ann buried 28 Mar 1802 in Sittingbourne)
      Sarah - baptised 4 Dec 1803 at Sittingbourne, St Michael 

      If this couple were the above there were probably more children between the above and those shown here.
      Regardless, could be missing other children, as not found the baptisms of all those with Robert in census years etc.
      One could be the William buried aged 8 in 1833 (abode Sheerness, buried Minster).
      Others might have been the George of Sheerness who died in infancy and was buried in 1815, the infant Robert of Sheerness buried in 1825 and the Martha of Sheerness buried aged 1 in 1820. All buried in Minster-in-Sheppey. However, Martha's was a parish funeral and I would have thought that a dockyard blacksmith would have earned enough not to be dependant on the parish.
