I am looking for information about Letitia Beamsley nee Kennard who is my 3rd great grandmother. On the 1841 census she is living with Henry Dawes (her maternal uncle), William Bates, William Merret, & John Merret.
UPDATE, MAY 2017:
I have since found out her Parents names:
FATHER: William KENNARD
Birth 30 JAN 1785 • East Harptree, Somerset, England. m. 8 Apr 1812. Occupation: Carrier.
Death AUG 1818 • Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England. Son of Richard Kennard & Mary BARWELL.
MOTHER: Ann DAWES
Birth ABT 1791 • Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England.
Death DEC 1863 • Charlton Kings, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, England. Daughter of Richard Dawes & Mary ?
I AM STILL LOOKING for further information and photos though, so If anyone could please help me with any information about this family, Please could you contact me?
Letitia m. James BEAMSLEY(of Stokenchurch, Oxfordshire. Son of William Beamsley, farmer, & Mary Beamsley nee Bates) at Stokenchurch. They married 20 Oct 1841 (shortly after the 1841 census).
James was the youngest of his siblings & probably did not inherit his father's farm - so he & Letitia immigrated to Nelson NZ via the Barque Mary (depart: 2 Nov 1848, arrived: 24 Feb 1849).
Letitia died in NZ Oct 1853 age ~32, of cancer. Her death certificate does not name her parents. The Informant: George Bonnington. She died in Waimea, Nelson, NZ & I think she has an unmarked grave.
If anyone could please help me with any information about this family, Please could you contact me?
