Jane or Joan Furber
Posted by: Rebecca Faulconbridge (ID *****8105) Date: November 14, 2006 at 06:42:52
  of 179

I know that my Isaac Young (a blacksmith) married a FURBER and have found an Isaac & Jane on the 1841 census living in Gloucester with some of their children and have managed to trace them on the other census returns upto 1871 (Isaac died in 1875) The returns state that both were born in Somerset, either Somerton or Langport.

Have managed to find a baptism for Isaac on the 26th January 1800 at Somerton as well as a marriage between an Isaac Young, blacksmith and a Joan Furber on the 13th August 1820 by banns at All Saints, Langport and thewitnesses were Sarah Scott & John Franklin but have been unable to find a baptism for either Joan or Jane Furber, who according to the census returns would have been born between 1802-1806.

Jane & Isaac had several children, born from 1820 - 1844, one of whom was an Elizabeth Franklyn would leads me to think that Joan and Jane are perhaps one and the same. The 3 eldest children were christened in Gloucester in March 1831 so they family moved from Somerset to Gloucester at some time.

Their children were Jane Davey - born 22nd June 1825 and christened the 23rd March 1831 at St. Nicholas

Elizabeth Franklyn - born on the 30th May 1828 and christened the 23rd March 1831 at St. Nicholas

Lucy - born approx 1831 and christened the 23rd March 1831 at St. Nicholas

Mary Ann Christened the 5th May 1833 at St. Nicholas

Samuel - christened the 3rd April 1836 and died on the 9th April 1838

Louisa - christened the 29th July 1838 at St. Nicholas

Perminah Christened the 12th December 1841

James - born 13th May 1844 at No 1 Kimbrose, St. Mary de Crypt in Gloucester and his birth certificate states that Isaacís occupation was a blacksmith and his motherís maiden name given at Furber.

If any one has connections to this family or can help me in way I would love to hear from them.
