View Full Version : AVELINE - HARDWICK connections
09-10-2004, 9:24 PM
While there appears to be no one in Herefordshire of recent years with AVELINE name it was here that Abigale HARDWICK married James AVELINE a surgeon, starting a custom in which some AVELINE descendants were given a second christian name HARDWICK. I came across this with my grandmothers sister, Bertha Hardwick KEENAN, born at Church Stretton, Shropshire. Her mother was Ann AVELINE daughter of James AVELINE (junior), an inland revenue officer, born 1799, the son of James AVELINE (Surgeon).
A brother (name not known) of James (senior) somehow in early 1800's was for a while in Pembrokeshire, Wales, where two sons were born, one was a Charles Hardwick AVELINE who later was a schoolmaster in Gloucestershire.
I hope some day to find which of James (senior)'s sons was Charles Harwicks parent and maybe whar he was doing in Pembrokeshire.

In the 1841 census there are only 13 Avelines in Herefordshire, including George Aveline, 70, surgeon & wife Elizabeth 70, living in Ross.
Also in 1861 census, 4 Avelines brothers living together in Stroud, Glos - George C. 30, Charles 33, John J. 26, Lenord 24. The 1st two born in Milford Haven, Pembroke, the last two born in British Guiana!

Thank you for the information on George AVELINE, the surgeon. I believe George AVELINE is the son of Samuel AVELINE of Ross and a brother of my grandmother's grandfather James AVELINE (senior) who was also a surgeon. James AVELINE senior was born acording to my information was born 1771 Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire, England, married Abigail HARDWICK on 4 Oct 1796. Abigail died 22nd November 1807 and James re-maried Mary RABONE on 22 November 1827. Jame AVELINE practised as a surgeon till he died in 1835 and was burried 17th August 1835 at St Laurence, Northfield, Worcestershire.
James's brother George AVELINE, surgeon, it seems was made a Freeman of the City of Gloucester 25th November 1817 while the Mayor of that city was David WALKER esquire. George died in March quarter of 1842, at Ross and his wife Elizabeth Ann died in March quarter of 1844 also at Ross.
The father of George and James ,was as mentioned earlier, Samuel Aveline. In addition to George and James, Samuel had two other sons John and Thomas, and all 4 were mentioned in Samuel's interesting but hard to read will that I was fortunate in locating.
I have none of the 13 AVELINES mentioned in the 1841 census and would be most appreciative of getting a transcription of those entries available for that and 1851 census. This may help to tidy up a number of puzzling loose ends regarding the family.

regarding George AVELINE the surgeon of Ross, described above, I have just found by accident that he had a son who in June 1842 was a church cleric it seems, living in the town of Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape, British Cape Colony, South Africa. This was found on the internet as a transcription of an article in the The Grahamstown Journal -A South African periodical from the Cape Colony.
- January 1842.
Died on Monday Feb 23 at his residence in Mount Pleasant, Ross, Herefordshire, aged 75, George AVELINE Esq., father of the Rev.George AVELINE, Graham's Town.
Geo AVELINE senior was listed as a member of the Royal College of Surgeons, in the London and country directory 1811, as a member who did not reside or practice in the City of London. His listing is “AVELINE Geo, Ross”
