    Default PETER READ, MY GREAT GRANDFATHER (BIDBOROUGH)

    I am looking for information on the family (specifically his parents are of interest) of PETER READ, my great grandfather. He was born in Bidborough, Kent, England in 1853. He was married to Elizabeth Caroline Mary Ann Davis, I do not know the year. Elizabeth was born in June 1853 in Shoreditch, Middlesex, England and died 01 December 1927 in West Malling, Kent, England. Peter and Elizabeth have 4 children, Lydia Charlotte, Grace Eleanor, Louisa E. and William Peter. Lydia Charlotte Read Giltnane Langsford is my grandmother, and Peter is her father.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I can see more records which pertain to your ancestry, but it's late and I must get some sleep.

    I'll look by tomorrow, but feel sure other members' will have looked in and added lots of info.

    Bagot is a very useful for family historians'. How many of them born same time would there be???

    I'll have another look at the 1911 Census and see if I can find another Peter who fits.

    Hi Nicolina: Thanks for your help! I am very confident on the details I conveyed. I have written confirmation and photos from my mother on these details. I don't think this is the correct Peter Read on the 1911 Census. His wife was Elizabeth Caroline Mary Ann Davis, not Louisa. Also the children are not the correct names. As well the marriage information does not agree with Lizzy's Marriage of 05 December 1872. In 1911 Peter and Elizabeth would have been married 39 years.

    Hi Shari, sorry I had forgotten this request. I have found Peter and family in 1861 but the enumerator's writing isn't clear, I therefore suspect there's names and place names copied wrongly. On this census it has Sussex as Peter's birth place!!! Rotherfield is about 11 miles from Bidborough.

    1861, Sompting Sussex. RG 9; Piece: 603; Folio: 26; Page: 2

    Bagol Offly Crew Read 40, Landlord Proptietor, Staffordshire
    Louisa Isabell Read 39, Radford London
    Richard Cola Crew Read 12, Byfleet, Surrey
    Bagol Crew Read 11, Tonbridge Kemt
    Mary Louise Read 9, Tonbridge
    Petre Crew Read 8, Rotherfield Sussex
    Fanny Crew Read 6, Tonbridge
