Charlotte Stileman 1819-1863

~1819. Charlotte Stileman was born to James Stileman & Ann Lambert in Cornwall??- from 1861C. But have searched the great OPC Cornish site- - and have found no Stileman in Cornwall

She had siblings: James John 1801; Ann Lambert 1807; Elizabeth 1809; Mary Ann 1811; Sarah 1816- according to Cook Ancestry tree. baptisms exist for the first 4 on Ancestry, 3 in Pentonville and one in Marylebone

Cannot find marriages for any of these on Ancestry London Marriages

How did Cook Ancestry tree find all thesechildren???

1841C. ??

A James Stileman, 30, glover??, not born in the county, is in City of London, with no other family members , Possibly her brother??- dubious And a Richard Stileman, 20, articled to a solicitor, not born in the county, is in Maylebone . A Mary Stileman, 30, noy born in the county. a female servant in Westminster . William Stileman, 23, labourer, not born in the county, is in Bethnal Green

1843. Charlotte Stileman married John Watson, widower, labourer, married on 16/7/1843 in the parish church of St Leonard, Shoreditch, Hackney . His father Thomas Watson, shipwright: hers James Stilemanm bankers clerk . Banns had been called in March , and both were of the parish St George Southwark: he stated clearly as widower in them


1846 Thomas Watson was born 3/6/1846, baptised 28/6/1846 , to John & Charlotte . His father worked at the Rice Mill, and their address was Adam Street , Rotherhithe

Other children baptised were: Rosetta Watson 1844, address Albion St.; John Watson 3/1851, address Queen St.; Joseph Watson 20/11/1859, address Green St. , mother Stileman

1851C. Westham, ear Chichester, there is a John 48, and a Charlotte 46, children plus Sarah 12- but unlikely to have moved away from Rotherhithe and NO Thomas in the family!And neither of the 2 Sarah Watson born in Sussex 1838-1840 have mother Stileman. QED, this family is NOT them! - this John & Charlotte shown in the Woods tree

Nothing in 1851C in Rotherhithe for Charlotte, Rosetta, Thomas, with any surname like Watson! -FMP & Ancestry

So Charlotte and John still alive in Rotherhithe in 1859!

40 Josephs aged 1-3 in 1861C, but none with a surname rassembling Watson!!(he was noted as 0!!) . But finaly found Rosetta Wartson- eureka!!

1859-1861. John Watson died Rotherhithe Dec 1859

1861C. Charlotte Warston, widow, 42, charwoman, was living 2, Seven Steps Alley, Rotherhithe with 4 children
