Mary Ann Mead 1819-1874

Michael Downey Ancestry tree & others

1819. Mary Ann Mead was born East Ham. Several Ancestry trees have her baptised in 19/2/1819 to William Mead . Suspect East Ham is not included on Ancestry London baptisms but would be on SEAX

1842. Mary Ann Mead married Hartley Nelson on 28/3/1842 in Charlton Parish Church, Greenwich Lewisham Mar 1842. . Lewisham marriages for 1842 exist on Ancestry London marriages-but meither Mary nor Hartley are listed & no Ancestry tree gives the m.c. But someone must have bought it for the exact date and church to be known!!

1846 Sarah Jane Nelson was baptised on 19/7/1846 to Hartley & Mary Ann in St Marys Rotherhithe. Mother Mund: this must be a mistranscription as

Mary Ann Nelson born 1844 had mother Mead

William Nelson born 1849 had mother Mead

Thus the mother of Sarah Jane Nelson 1846 must also have been Mead, and NOT Mund

No birth record for Elizabeth Mary 1842, just baptism in Ealing on 31/7/1842, alongside the baptism of a Margaret Ann - FS ! The St Marys Rotherhithe baptism record is shown on Ancestry and Hartley is given as carpenter, address Plough Road

Mary Ann Nelson born 1844 was baptised St Marys Ealing - FS - on 19/7/1846, born 13/5/1844 FS. According to their records all 4 baptisms took place both in Ealing and Rotherhithe!!
