  • Name Elizabeth ADAMS 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born Abt 1782  Bishopsbourne, 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 
    • Age given as 65  (rounded down)  in 1841 census and 77 in 1851 suggest a year of birth of abt 1774; birthplace Bishopsbourne is from the 1851 and 1861 censuses. 
      Using this data assumes these entries were for the same Elizabeth as the one - name given as Mary in 1841 census.
      FreeBMD finds no Richared Roses marrying an Elizabeth in Kent in the period 1841 - 1851 so I think Mary is an error.
      Age still recorded as 77 in 1861 - but Elizabeth was then living in the Workhouse, and details were often less accurate.
      On the otherhand, an Elizabeth Adams was bapt in Bishopsbourne in 1782, no Adams families in Bridge where Elizabeth was living at the time of her marriage so I suspec this was her baptism.
    Baptised 24 Feb 1782  St. Mary’s Church, Bishopsbourne, 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

    Resident in the workhouse 
    • The admission entry for Elizabeth shows that she was in class 6 for diet, and number 47 was affixed to her clothes.
    Residence 1861  The Union Workhouse, Bridge, 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 
    • Age still shown as 77 - as it was in 1851! But at 87 Elizabeth may well have had memory problems, and no relation to know and provide the correct info.

      I have checked and failed to find any other Bishopsbourne-born Elizabeth Roses b c 1774 - 1784 who could have been this one. And  there are also no Bridge RD deaths for an Elizabeth Rose in the period 1851-1861 which suggested she was still alive.

    Notes 
    • (Research):I'm not too confident about the ancestry of Elizabeth. It seems reasonable to suppose she was the dau of Wm and Ann - i.e. that her baptism was in the same place as her birth. But Wm and Ann clearly weren't married in Bishopsbourne, neither were they baptised or buried here.

      Their first child bapt in Bb was bapt in 1777. Looking on the IGI there was a Wm and Ann married in Ramsgate in 1776 and another couple in Ickham in 1775.

      Ickham is close enough that this could easily be the couple - but might there be other contenders in parishes not on the IGI?

      Several trees on Ancestry have Richard married to an Elizabeth Mary Woods in Pirbright, Surrey, and himself the child of a couple married there. One move from Pirbright is conceivable, but given that the census shows Richard's and Elizabeth's birthplaces these trees imply a highly improbable (for that time) toing and froing between the Kingston area and Pirbright.

    • ** I can't be sure that the Wm and Ann Adams who had the family at Bishopsbourne were the Wm Adams and Ann Browning who married at Ickham **

      There are 2 queries:
      1. was the Ann who my Wm Adams was married to a Browning?
      Need to do a more thorough search of Wm Adams marriages to an Ann in the area (I have tried tracing the Browning tree a little in case it yields info. e.g. is there a Browning will referring to Ann by her married name?) 

      2. Do I have the right parents for Ann Browning?

      In Ickham at this date no marriages showed bachelor or spinster etc.
      Both were otp. Witnesses were Thomas Cotton and John Denn. John Denn(e) was a witness to most marriages - probably parish clerk. Who was Thomas Cotton? - is there a clue as to whether I have the right Ann Browning marrying Wm Adams. (see notes attached to Ann Browning for more info about the 2)

      There was another Adams - Browning marr: Ann Adams to Edward Browning, banns read in Bishopsbourne, both otp, 1782. Ann Browning had a brother Edward b c 1751 (NS) but there was also an Edward b 1758, both Ickham.

    • The entry (KFHS transcript, CD 23) shows Richard as otp and a bachelor, Elizabeth's abode as Bridge, but the field for spinster or widow is blank

    View down Bishopsbourne Church, c. 1840
    This picture probably gives a better impression of what my ancestors in Bishopsbourne in the C18th would have known than would visiting the church today!
    View from the East (altar) end towards the tower, c. 1840, with box pews, a 2 or 3 decker pulpit (the one bequeathed by Richard Hooker) and Hooker's memorial. The latter has since been moved due to the installation of an organ.

    • "Richard Rose of the Parish of Bishopsbourne and Elizabeth Adams of this Parish"
      From PR image (on FMP) which shows 3 readings on 11 May 1800, 26 May 1800, 12 Jun 1800, though these dates may not be quite right. Banns were read on a Sunday, and although 11 May was a Sunday in 1800, 26 May was a Monday and 12 June a Thursday!
      They were also supposed to be read for 3 consecutive weeks, and although in chapels which may only have had a service every 3 weeks they were sometimes read at 3 week intervals rather than weekly in the parish church as the law seemed to require, Bridge was a parish and would have been expected to have services every Sunday. 
    Married 21 Jun 1800  St. Peter’s Church, Bridge, 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 
    • Curiously, the banns were read in Bishopsbourne because Richard was of the parish, but the marriage register shows him as of Kingstone. Possibly abode and where he was born / came from had been confused - the latter shouldn't matter for banns and marriage registers.

      Neither banns nor marriage register for Bridge show marital status for either Richard or Elizabeth.

      The marriage was witnessed by another Richard Rose and a Sarah Rose - I guess these were the groom's father and sister.
