Tappenden: A mystery - please help?
Posted by: Katie Brown (ID *****2537) Date: August 11, 2009 at 13:43:02

I am completely stumped by one of my ancestors and am struggling to find records for him - I wonder if anyone can help?

William Tappenden b 1842/3 (from death certificate and age on 1871, 1891 and 1901 census). All the family I have found so far are from the Hackney area.

William was married twice and both certificates show Thomas Tappenden as his father with the occupation of Plasterer. Marriages are firstly in 1868 to Sarah Harper (b 1847, Hackney - d 1872) and they had one child, Elizabeth (b 1869, Hackney).

Second marriage was to Eliza Wood nee Farey (b 1843, Homerton, Hackney) and they had 4 children I am aware of (Florence - 1868, William G - 1874, Edith - 1876 and Henry - 1880, all born in Homerton, Hackney)and one from Eliza's first marriage (Florence Wood).

I cannot find William (having a father named Thomas) on the 1851 or 1861 census or a record of his birth. The only William Tappenden that fits the birth years was born in Kent and I believe his parents were William and Susannah.

William died in 1895 in Hackney Union Infirmary.

Any help anyone can give or alternate theories would be gratefully received.

Many thanks,
