1 Ann Paters who was she? on Mon Sep 22, 2014 9:55 am


In 1861 census Stratton St, Stratton St Margaret, Wiltshire is Robert Hinchliffe visitor age 8.
He is with a lady transcribed as Ann Paters widow 72 from Gt Tollard Dorset.
It's a general shop so was he just bedding down with the sweeties for the night Question
He's back with his own family in 1871 so hasn't been orphaned or anything.

I've just noticed on the same census page are his grandparents Robert Chowles butcher and his wife Mary but he obviously preferred to spend the night with the sweeties than them Very Happy

I expect Ann Paters is just the shop keeper but would be interesting to find out more about her.

FMP has her as Ann Patey, if that helps at all.  Wink

Will be back later to see if I can find more. Smile


Back sooner than I thought Rolling Eyes

In 1851, she's Ann Peaty, 62, b. Dorsetshire, still at Stratton Street, with 59yo husband John Peaty, b. Ramsby/Ramsley (? - hard to read), Wilts.  His occupation is given as Butcher.

I see that in 1861 it says she was b. Gt Tolland, Dorset, but I can't find any such place. Embarassed

Is this helping? bounce

Paters - Patey - Peaty - take your pick it would seem Shocked

And I have found a death for her under Peatey in 1868.

Death for John Peatey in 1852.

His birthplace I think is Ramsbury.  Hers goodness knows, I couldn't find a Gt Tollard in Dorset either.

There is a Tollard Royal in Wiltshire, maybe that's on the border with good old Dorsetshire.

Can you find them in 1841?  I can't.

1841, still at Stratton Street, still a butcher.  He b. in county, she not.

HO107, piece 1178, book 27, folio 11, page 15.

Are you getting a link yet to the family? Question

Got it thank you bounce

No link that I can see.

Interesting her husband was a butcher as was Robert's grandfather in the same street.  I always imagine him having a butchers shop but it could have been a more macabre set up in those days pale

Nobody seems to remember a butchers shop in that street nor is there one on any of the old photographs I've seen.

Only other thing is finding a marriage for the Paters, whatever the proper name was, to see if any H's were witnesses  Idea

Not having much luck. Sad

There's this


but I can't find anything on FreeReg, searching 1830 +/- 20 years.


Maybe the chaps became buddies because they were both butchers?  Clutching at straws, moi?  Embarassed

Looks like that couple had to get married - daughter Anna born very soon after.

Yes just butcher buddies I reckon, will leave it at that thanks.
