Note on Husband: John POTTLE - shared note

1. The birth certificate for his daughter Jane Maria (1846) gives his profession as Confectioner, and address as 41 Mitre Street (birth registered in the sub-district Waterloo (first part) of the district of Lambeth). On this certificate it is absolutely clear that the mother's maiden name is Thacker. I have searched the PRO index from 1837 to 1846 for a record of his marriage, but the nearest match is an entry for the marriage of John Pottle to a Mary Turner.


2. FreeBMD has come up with the answer. John Pottle and Maria Thacker were married in 4th Qtr 1848 - well after the birth of Jane, which explains why I wasn't looking in the right place. On the marriage certificate John Pottle's profession is Confectioner, and his address as Wootton Street in the parish of St John, Waterloo. Both parties are described as of full age. His father's name is given as Thomas Pottle, and hers as George Thacker.


3. There is a possible entry for him in the 1841 census. This is a household of 5 people living in Devonshire Street, parish of St Mary Newington, Lambeth :

Jane Pottle F age 40 Laundress Not born Surrey

Jane Pottle F age 20 Not born Surrey

Alfred Pottle M age 16 Not born Surrey

John Pottle M age 12 Not born Surrey.

William Pottle M age 8 Not born Surrey

It would have been nicer if he had been born in Surrey, and nicer still if there had been a father named Thomasm but he is bekieved to have died by 1841,


4. In the 1851 census, now living at 10 Devonshire Street, Newington, we have:

John Pottle M age 22, Carman, born Newington, Surrey. Head of household

Maria Pottle F age 22, Laundress, born Newington, Surrey, Wife

Jane Pottle, F age 4, born Lambeth. Daughter

Mary A Pottle, F age 2, born Newington. Daughter


5. In the 1871 census the family is in Lambeth, Surrey (street name illegible).

John Pottle, Age 43, Head, Cabman, B. Newington

Maria, Age 43, Wife, b. Newington

Frederick, Age 9, Son, b. Newington

John, Age 7, Son, b. St. George, Surrey

Maria, Age 5, Daughter, b. Newington, Surrey

George, Age 2, Son, b. St. George, Surrey

Charles, Age 8 months, Son, b. St George, Surrey


6. Note that the children listed are mostly taken from either the 1851 or 1871 censuses. It looks as though there should be others in between. One more (Thomas) comes from an Ancestry family tree called "Pottle Family Tree" owned by "Keithpottle71". He also provides several dates of death and the name of John Pottle's mother.

Note on Wife: Maria Elizabeth THACKER - shared note

1. The IGI has a record of the death of a Maria Pottle aged 47 in St Saviour, Lambeth in 3rd Qtr 1874. The age is almost right and the location plausible. (But in the same quarter there is also the death of a John Pottle aged 48 - in his case the age would be 3 years out.)


2. The 1841 census has a Mary Thacker, aged 15, in Newington Crescent, St Mary Newington, Lambeth, Surrey. She is living with a couple called Sarah and William Overton - presumably as a servant.. [ Possible - no more - and completely unhelpful.]
