Samuel Keene 1764- ?? 1822?? & further back Keenes

Furnivals Inn in 1795

a solicitor of Grafton Street, Middlesex.- David where did this come from ????

1764. Samuel Keene was baptised on 20/5/1764 to Samuel Keene & Anne in St Marys Lambeth.

1792. Sanuel Keane married Grace Lever on 18/8/1792 in Norwich Consistory Court, Norfolk Ancestry England Select Marriages

1793. William Charles Lever Keane was baptised in St Marys Lambeth to Samuel & Grace on 27/11/1793, the baby then aged 6 months

2 more children: Samuel Browne Keene, baptised 8/12/1796 St Andrew, Holborn, no image available & Mary Grace Keene baptised 23/9/1795 St Andrew, Holborn Ancestry London baptisms the one line entry adds Furnivals Inn

1825 A Sanuel Keene, 52, was buried in St Geoges Hanover Square on 13/10/1825, his abode St James. BUT, he should be ~61. So a SUSPECT Samuel: we know that one was baptised 1773, to a Henry Keene: , and this fits perfectly

1822. A Samuel Keene 58, was buried Lambeth on 3/4/1822- FS

1828. A Samuel Keene buried Holbonr many Ancestry trees state this 'fact', BUT, then include the 1825 burial record. I can find no evidence of a 1828 death!! = only circumstantial in that his wife, Grace, writes a Will in March 1828.!!
