    Default 1901 Look-Up Cheesman please

    Could someone be kind enough to look something up for me please on the 1901 Census.

    I am seeking a May Cheesman, born 1891/2 in Sheerness, Kent, with father Benjamin E Cheesman who would be about 42, and any family members.

    I have Benjamin aged 22 on the 1881 Census, unmarried, but can't find a trace of him on the 1891, when May would have been born.

    I have May's marriage, but no details of her mother, which would be great.

    Glenys.

    Thank you very much Bumblebee! This is most helpful, and just what I wanted. I'm not too sure about the changes in wives.....but it is possible that he married twice.

    I had found the birth details of May, and think that Elizabeth Jarvis could have been the correct wife at the marriage in 1884. I haven't sent for the cert. as yet, but that will clarify it.

    Haven't worked out yet why you found them on the 1891 and I couldn't.....probably because I was looking on findmypast....as I have a few units on that.

    Again my thanks, this has given me the direction I wanted.

    I noted that at least one of your Cheesman's was born in Sittingbourne.

    My great grandmother was Annie Elizabeth Margaret Cheesman b. 1868 Milton next Sittingbourne. Her father was George Cheesman

    Have you researched any branches on this line or do you know if there is any connection.

    Sorry Adrian, only just read your message as I have been on holiday.

    I was collecting this information for a friend of mine, so haven't really delved too deeply, but if you give me a few days, I will see if I can find any connection.

    Adrian, I have had a look at the information that I have, but so far I am unable to find any link to your family in Milton. It's quite possible that there could be a link, especially as Milton is only a few miles away from Sheppey. It's quite possible that a family member came on the Island to work. I have a case where the daughter of a family, came onto the island to work as a servant and married in Sheerness. Also Cheesman (without the extra `e' Cheeseman) was quite common on Sheppey.

    I will keep a look out during my searches, and if I find anything will let you know.

    Best wishes

    Glenys

    Hi Glenys

    Thank you.

    Should have also mentioned that her father was George Cheesman b. abt 1835 in Borden. I have six children for George all born in Milton from about 1864 - 1881: They were Edward, only have initial W for the next male, Annie, George (he was b 1870 and d 1882, Margaret and Henry.

    I believe this to be George with his parents on the 1851 Census


    1851 Census HO107; Piece: 1627; Folio: 107; Page: 7 Borden, Kent
    Abraham Cheesman abt 1845 Borden, Son
    Augusta Cheesman abt 1838 Borden, Daughter
    Elizabeth Cheesman abt 1815 Newington, Wife
    George Cheesman abt 1840 Borden, Son
    Sarah Cheesman abt 1850 Borden, Daughter
    William Cheesman abt 1810 Borden, Head

    So far I have not been able to find the family on the 1841 Census

    If I find anything that suggests one migrated to Sheppy will let you know

    Adrian, I came across this marriage in Sittingbourne...it's probably nothing to do with you, but I thought I would throw it in anyway just in case.

    14.11.1847 Sittingbourne

    George CHEESMAN (labourer) son of Richard (Smith)
    Ann BOTTLE (widow) daur of Robert BREWER (Builder)
    Witnesses: John Cheesman, Mary Ann Cheesman.

    Borden, Newington and Milton are all areas around Sittingbourne, so you never know.
