Angie has asked … I am wondering if anyone can help me with tracing my 4 x great grandad Thomas Calladine born 1818/19. I can’t find a birth record for Thomas so am unable to confirm his mother’s name. I know his Father is John. There seems to be three possible options, Elisabeth, Lydia or Hannah. If anyone can help that would be great. (Feb 11th 2022)
I have made a few suggestions … I am assuming that this is Thomas who was a confectioner on Bath Street and married Hannah Henshaw on August 14th 1839.
His father John married Hannah Mitchell on Aug 22nd 1822, but he was a widower.
His first daughter with Hannah was named Augustine … born May 24th 1823 … this , I believe, was because his first wife was Augustine Delhay (? Irish?) who died in Ilkeston in December 1821.
It seems that Thomas and his brother Lewis (born October 21st 1820 in Ilkeston) were sons of John and Augustine therefore.Thomas was born in either Ireland or Scotland, while John was in the army … the 1861 census shows John as a Chelsea pensioner.
I suggest that he married Augustine/Augusta while in Ireland ? So the records of the marriage and possibly the birth of Thomas lie either in army or Irish records?
….. but maybe someone has better or more definite information or ideas ?
