    Default Maria Blackburn Anderson

    Hi all,

    I was enticed to joining this forum because of this section dedicated to brickwalls - I've got a few tricky people in my family tree that refuse to give up their secrets.

    Maria Blackburn Anderson married Robert Everatt in Hull on 8th July 1860. Her father is named as George Anderson.

    She appears on the 1861 census as Maria Everatt, born circa 1831 in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, along with her husband Robert Everatt (born circa 1837, Broomfleet, Yorkshire) and their son William Robert (age 0).

    She had one more child, Mary Jane, in 1862. Both of the children's birth records confirm a maiden name of Anderson.

    She died in 1866, where her age was recorded as 38 (giving a birth year circa. 1828).


    One more fact is that the daughter, Mary Jane Everatt, got married and became a Blythe, and had a daughter called May Maria Blackburn Blythe.


    I have searched for baptism records for Maria Blackburn Anderson and have found nothing. I tried searching Maria Anderson baptisms with fathers called 'George' and found a record - interestingly - in Gainsborough, however it's from 1824, which seems a touch early considering her estimated age in the 1861 census. The mother was a 'Mary Ann' and I hoped that her maiden name might be Blackburn, but the most likely marriage record for a George Anderson and a Mary Ann in Lincolnshire is in 1819 in Gainsborough with Mary Ann's maiden name being Gilyed.


    I have tried to track down Maria Andersons in 1841 and 1851 with no real success. There is a Maria Anderson (born 1825) in Hull in 1851, as the sister of the head of the household, the widow Mary Ann Norman, a 'Landed Proprietress' also of Gainsborough (born 1818) but none of this seems to fit with anything else!


    Can anyone help me track down Maria?

    There is a photo of the gravestone on Ancestry which has her age as 41.

    Here's what I've found so far..............more searching to carry out.

    I do think the Maria Anderson in 1851 listed as sister to Mary Ann Norman is 'yours'. My reasoning being in 1861 Mary Ann West formerly Norman has a Jane Everatt living in her household, this Jane seems to be the sister of Robert Everatt husband of Maria B Anderson.

    1851, Elloughton. HO107; Piece: 2359; Folio: 116; Page: 2;

    Mary Everatt 42, Mappleton
    Jane Everatt 16, Broomfleet
    Robt Everatt 14, Broomfleet
    James Everatt 10, Brough

    WEST, SACKVILLE MORTIMER, Mother's maiden name TAYLOR
    GRO Reference: 1855 M Quarter in SCULCOATES Volume 09D Page 132

    WEST, REGINALD, MMN GILLIAT
    GRO Reference: 1856 D Quarter in SCULCOATES Volume 09D Page 134

    WEST, FLORENCE, MMN GILLYATT
    GRO Reference: 1858 D Quarter in SCULCOATES Volume 09D Page 136

    It is puzzling that Mary Ann's children aren't all registered with the same mother's maiden name and not registered with surname Anderson.

    More research required

    Mary Ann appears to have married a first husband in 1838, a pity no first name recorded for her father

    Name: William Taylor
    Spouse's Name: Mary Ann Gylliat
    Event Date: 1838
    Event Place: Gainsborough, Lincoln, England
    Father's Name: William Taylor
    Spouse's Father's Name: Gylliat

    Probably doesn't help much but the Census entry you found is correct. Maria Anderson was born to George and Mary Ann in Gainsborough and baptised there 1824. As you say George Anderson, a shoemaker, married a Mary Ann Gilyed.


    Looking at the births of Mary Ann Norman's children on the Gro site they all have mmn Gylliat. There is a marriage for a Mary Ann Giylliat to a William Taylor in June 1838 in Gainsborough. She just gives her father's name as Gylliat, a Mariner. Haven't found the death yet but presumably William dies and Mary Ann Taylor, widow, goes on to marry William Norman in Sculcoates in 1841.

    From all that I would guess that Mary Ann is the illegitimate daughter of the Mary Ann Gilyed who married George Anderson.

    Sorry, hadn't realised I'd missed the previous posts whilst I was searching - sorry for the repetition.
