Edward Birkett 1820- 1871

Hatter , but later seemingly labourer & hawker . Born St Lukes Middlesex, lived Newington

dan

Above likely irrelevant!

Have a James Birkett ,39, burial record 1/4/1832- thus born ~1793 - at St George the Martyr -Ancestry- this possibly Edward'sfather !!

a

2 Ancestry trees but large and know nothing about him or his wife

1851C. Paragon Row , St Mary Newington, Newington . Edward Birkett, 31, a Hatter

Edward Birkett Head Married Male 31 1820 Hatter St Luke's, Middlesex, England  
Amelia Birkett Wife Married Female 30 1821 - Kennington, Surrey, England  
Edward Birkett Son - Male 6 1845 - Christchurch, Surrey, England  
James Birkett Son - Male 4 1847 - Southwark, Surrey, England  
Elizabeth Birkett Daughter - Female 2 1849 - Newington, Surrey, England  
John Birkett Son - Male 0 1851 - Walworth, Surrey, England

Edward & Amelia had the following children: Edward Birkett 1845; James Birkett 1847; Elizabeth Birkett 1849; John Birkett 1851 & Charlotte Ann Birkett 1853

1853. Charlotte Ann Birkett was born Newington Jun 1853. No baptism on Ancestry London Baptisms, nor for her 4 siblings

1861C. 3 Eltham Street, St Mary Newington, Newington . Edward Birkett, 41, a Labourer-odd!!, but maybe not, as he is said to be a hawker by 1871

Edward Berkett Head Married Male 41 1820 Labourer Stepney, Middlesex, England  
Amelia Berkett Wife Married Female 40 1821 None Lambeth, Surrey, England  
James Berkett Son - Male 15 1846 Errand Boy... -  
Charlotte Berkett Daughter - Female 8 1853 Scholar Newington, Surrey, England

So, Edward & Amelia seemingly had at least 5 children: Edward 1845, James 1847, Elizabeth 1849, John 1850 & Charlotte Ann 1853.

From this I thought it likely his mother was called Elizabeth - but now feel she was Jane

1871C. 3 Eltham Street, St Mary Newington, Newington . Edward Birkett, 51, a Hawker!, born Lambeth, as is his wife

Edward Birkett Head - Male 51 1820 - Surrey, England  
Amelia Birkett Wife - Female 51 1820 - Surrey, England

1871. Only possible death 1871-1891 is St Saviour Dec 1871, but aged 61- seemingly impossible - but FS tree has him dying 4/12/1871 Walworth - not on FMP

& no possible death for Amelia

Almost certainly Irrelevant

~1822-1826?? I originally thought Edward Birkett born to Daniel Birkett & Elizabeth in Middlesex . Daniel, 72, corn factor, still alive 1851C. Wife Elizabeth Wrangham. They married 11/3/1806 Auckland St Andrew Durham- FS. Daniel Birkett dies Hackney Dec 1859 - no burial on FMP- probate of ~£10000, son Daniel a corn merchant, another son a wine merchant

1841C. Could not find him on Ancestry nor on FMP . But on FS Clapton Road Hackney , aged 15- younger than I was searching for! so
