Hi
I am looking for any information that I can find about Susanna Maiden (maybe Maidens). I know that she was b in 1817. She married George Whiley in 1840 in Friskney and they moved to Australia. Her death record in NSW lists her father as Thomas but no mother. I have looked at the Lincolnshire marriage idexes online, and she might have had a sister Eliza, and brothers John & Thomas. I would really appreciate it if anyone can help me fill in the gaps.

Regards
Fiona

A (very) long shot ... put the surname MOUNSTEER into the LDS search page ... it has to be a mistranscription of something. There appear to be no others in the world!

Hi Geoff
I have just had a good look at the LDS. I did find a Thomas Maiden b 1796 Friskney. I also found a marriage for Thomas Maiden in Friskney in 1816 to Ann (no surname). Thomas & Ann had 3 children listed (Selena 1819, Thomas 1821, Daniel 1824), all born in Friskney, sadly no Susanna listed however this is a strong possibility. Thank you for steering me in that direction......it has given me somewhere to start looking.

Fiona,

There is this Thomas MAIDENS in the 1841 census of Friskney:

HO107/633/14, folio 51, page 23
Hiddocks

Thomas MAIDENS 60 Parochial Relief Born in county yes
Mary do 50 yes
Ann do 13 yes
John do 11 yes
Emma do 7 yes
Mary do 9 yes

There is also this Thomas MAIDENS born about 1826 in the 1841 census of Friskney on HO107/633/14, folio 5, page 2 who is shown as aged 15, a Male Servant, living at Fen Drove in the household of William LOW, aged 35 a Farmer - could he perhaps be Susannah's brother??

This looks like Thomas MAIDENS, jnr in the 1851 census of Friskney:

HO107/2109, folio 129, page 12
Schedule 40, Tofts

Thomas MAIDENS Head Mar 30 Farm Labourer Lincolnshire Friskney
Elizabeth do Wife Mar 48 do Great Carlton
Susan do Daur 5 do Friskney

Thomas snr appears to have died by the 1851 census as Mary is described as a widow:

HO107/2109, folio 116, page 38
Schedule 148, Hiddicks

Mary MAIDENS Head Wid 64 Butchers widow Pauper Norfolk Retton
John do Son U 21 Baker Lincoln Friskney
Emma do Daur U 18 Pauper do do

There is a death registration of a Thomas MAIDENS in the September qtr 1842 at Spilsby reg district (which includes Friskney), vol 14, page 350.

Hope this helps.

Janet

Hi Geoff
I have just had a good look at the LDS. I did find a Thomas Maiden b 1796 Friskney. I also found a marriage for Thomas Maiden in Friskney in 1816 to Ann (no surname). The classic "They-must-have-got-married-the-year-before-the-birth-of-the-first-child-and-been-aged-20-at-marriage" entry.

There was a burial at Friskney in 1843 aged 57 ... the 1842 was of a 63 year old at Revesby.

An Ann was buried at Friskney in 1853 aged 75. It looks as if she was married to a George MAIDENS.

A baptism in around 1786 (suggested by the 1843 burial) would possibly bring the chap from Thorpe St Peter into the picture ... only about 3 miles from Friskney.
