    Angry Bartholomew Coney

    Please help ,I have been searching for Bartholomew Coney for a year after finding him on one of my marriage certificates as the father of my Thomas Coney.
    I have at long last found banns for the marriage of bartholomew to Mary Reagon in 1832 he was a widower...I then found a marriage for Bartholomew 1869 but have discovered this was his son and Bartholomew was deceased,,,
    Coney family were in Bethnal Green area...I have found no death certificates or records in census for any Bartholomew...any ideas...I live in northumberland so depend on pc and caring library assistants ..any ideas TY

    The usual first look revealed nothing so I shifted to Thomas to try to get a start,

    Births Dec 1843
    Coney Thomas St Pancras 1 282
    Births Mar 1848
    Coney Thomas St Luke 2 303
    Births Sep 1849
    CONEY Thomas St Pancras 1 272

    Three possible London births, not Bethnal Green but all close
    From what you know can you identify him

    Have you been able to locate Thomas as a child on any census? If so, who is he with?

    What's Bartholomew's occupation on the marriage certs?

    When was Thomas and Bartholomew (the son) born?

    I've found Batholomew's wedding in 1869 on freebmd and the people who are listed are as follows:

    CONEY Bartholomew Bethnal Green 1c 559
    Edwards Alexander Bethnal Green 1c 559
    HUBBARD Sarah Bethnal Green 1c 559
    Marshall Amelia Bethnal Green 1c 559

    This means that Bartholomew married a Sarah or an Amelia.

    I'm guessing Sarah as their names are in capital letters.

    Bartholomew on Thomas marriage certificate was a bricklayer
    Thomas was born 1821/22
    Bartholomew no trace

    No trace of Thomas on census..he was born 1821 and i only found him 1841 census married so no trace of siblings or family...

    Hi Robin,
    The 1869 marriage is for the elder Bartholomew's son.
    And yes, he did marry Sarah, but it is pure coincidence that both their surnames are in capitals on FreeBMD. That's down to how the entries were 'keyed in'. (The marriage is on A*'s London marriages with the surnames indexed as Covey and Habbard. Marriaige took place at St James the Great, Bethnal Green.)

    To confirm, and for info,
    Parish of Bermondsey (St James' church) in the county of Surrey
    Page 37, entry 110.
    Bartholomew Coney, widower, and Mary Reagon, spinster, both of this parish
    married by banns 23 April 1832.
    Bartholomew signed, Mary made her mark.
    Witnesses (both signed) were John Wheeler and 'if-you-can-read-the-signature-you're-a-better-man-than-I-Gunga-Din'.
    Details from Ancestry's London marriages database.

    I think the first part of the surname is 'Green.....'
