Note on Husband: John REDFORD - shared note

1. I have a copy of his marriage certificate to Sarah Heath. He is described as a widower and his profession is Typefounder. He lived in Waterloo Road, Lambeth.

 

2. In the 1881 census he had a son James Redford by a previous marriage, aged 9.

Note on Wife: Sarah HEATH - shared note

1. Married Alfred Wallace in 1862, who died in 1877.

 

2. Married John Redford (Typefounder) in 1880.

 

3. Lived at 191 Waterloo Road at the time of the 1881 census.

 

4. I have a copy of a birth certificate for Sarah Heath dated 1844. Mum thinks that there might be a mistake, since the 1881 census implies that she was born in 1842. I accept it as valid, but the evidence is thin. ie. This birth certificate gives her parents as William + Maria. If we follow this up then we obtain a brother William, which matches up with the guy who gave evidece at the inquest of Alfred Wallace.

 

5. Mum presumably obtained the names of all the children from this census, but there is a lot of disagreement between this and the christening records as to which children did or didn't have middle names. Maybe her second husband was the one who answered the questions and wasn't too hot on the details. This might account for the discrepancy of ages in note 4.

 

6. I have a copy of her marriage certificate to Alfred Wallace in 1862. This describes her as a minor. The address of one or other or both is given as High Street, Lambeth.

 

7. All her children born between 1869 and 1875 were christened at Christ Church, Southwark, and entries can be found in the IGI on the internet. For the earlier and later children the IGI search yields no results. Presumably they were in a different parish which has not yet been indexed.

 

8. See the notes on her husband Alfred Wallace regarding the children Alfred and Phil.
