Fredrick Dyer born in 1841 in Wellington

Fredrick married Fanny Fifield Oct-Dec 1868 in Kettering (Ref Kettering Vol 3b Page 376). Fanny was born about 1844 in Rothwell, Northampton. Frederick and Fanny had the following known children:

For the 1871 census Frederick had moved from Wales to Manchester where he was working as a "Government Teacher" and living with his wife Fanny Fifield and their daughter Eva. Also recorded with them is Frederick’s sister, Mary, who may well have just been visiting.

For the 1881 census Frederick was still in Manchester now living in Mosside along with his wife and their four children: Frederick C. Samuel A., Henrietta F., and baby Frank. He is now recorded as an iron monger, a bit of a change from teacher ten years previously! The Frederick C. Bottrill recorded as "nephew" in this census was the son of Elizabeth Bottrill, nee Fifield, Fanny’s sister, who lived a few streets away.

For the 1891 census Frederick was still in Mosside. He is now recorded as an Clerk, again a bit of a switch from "Iron Monger"of ten years previously! Fredrick and Fanny seem to have had no further children.

Ten years later for the census of 1901, Frederick and his wife were living at 167 Chorlton Road, Stretford. Their son Samuel A. is definitely listed as aged 29 which would disagree with the 1881 census. Frederick's job has changed with him now recorded as a "Chief Inspector- Corporation Water".

For the census of 1911, Frederick and his wife were living at 33 Dudley Road, Whalley Range, Chorlton, with only their son Samuel A. listed in the household (with his correct age this time!). Frederick is recorded as "General Inspector - Supply & Fitting" presumably still with the Corporation Water.

There is a record of a Fanny Dyer dying between October and December 1921 aged 76 in Chorlton, Lancashire (Ref Chorlton Vol 8c Page 960) which is probably "our" Fanny. Frederick Dyer died aged 80 on 19 February 1922, usual address 35 Dudley Road Whalley Range, Lancashire (Ref Chorlton Vol 8c Page 1283).

Elisheba Ann Dyer born in 1843 in Wellington

Sometime circa 1870 Elisheba seems to have had a relationship with a T. Morris Chester, an American Attorney, journalist and civil rights activist, which resulted the birth of a daughter Minnie Chester Dyer in 1870 in Shooters Hill, London. (Ref: Oct-Dec 1870 Woolwich Vol 1d Page 883) Although no father’s name was recorded on the certificate the fact the Morris was the father is confirmed by two extant letters from Morris to Elisheba.  (Click here for a transcription of two letters from T. Morris Chester to Elisheba) This must have been very much a relationship that crossed social classes as Morris had studied law in England and became the first black American to be admitted to the bar in England. An indicator of the social classes he mixed in, is the fact that during an extensive tour of the continent, Tsar Alexander II of Russia was amongst the rulers who showed him special hospitality. (Click here for further information on T. Morris Chester) 

There is an interesting article on a Raglan website which talks about a shop in Raglan run by F. N. Silverthorn post 1926 http://rlhg.wetpaint.com/page/Silverthorne+family - There is a reference to F. N. Silverthorn being the son of John Silverthorn, Coachman to the Duke of Beaufort around 1860 and his wife being an Ann (Dyer), a housekeeper also for the Beauforts. However I believe that F. N. Silverthorn was Frederick Nelson Silverthorn, the son of Fitzroy Silverthorn and Elisheba Ann Dyer. I suspect the identification of F. N. Silverthorn's father as John is a confusion of F.N.'s Father with his Grandfather as F.N.'s Grandfather  and Fitzroy's father was a John Silverthorn. However what is interesting is the reference to Ann Dyer as being in the household of the Duke of Beaufort. This would fit with her coming into contact with T. Morris Chester taking into account the exalted circles he seems to have moved in. 

For the census of 1871 Ann was back in Newport living with her parents, Samuel and Sarah, and with her daughter Maria Chester recorded as a "nurse child"  (Click her for further details of Minnie Chester Dyer and her later life)

Four years after this census Elisheba Ann married Fitzroy Silverthorn in Apr-Jun 1875. (Ref Newport,M. Vol 11a Page 203). Fitzroy was the son of John Silverthorn and Caroline Huff and was christened on 26 March 1854 in Tormarton, South Gloucestershire.

Elisheba and Fitzroy had at least three known children : (Click here for further details of Elisheba and Fitzroy's children where known)

For the census of 1881 Elisheba was living with Fitzroy and her young family at Pontywain, Risca, Monmouthshire. Her daughter Maria Chester was living with her living with her Elisheba's back in Newport."Maud Dyer - niece - aged 11 - Scholar - Newport, Monmouthshire" was the "natural" daughter of Elisheba’s sister Maria .

Maria Dyer born on 30 Mar 1846 in Wellington

Next Generation in our Family History

Henry Dyer born in 1850 in Wellington

For the 1881 census Henry was living a few streets away from his brother Fredrick’s, lodging with Elizabeth J. Bottrill the sister of Fredrick’s wife, Fanny. Elizabeth had married a John Bottrilll in Jul-Sep 1862 in Kettering (Ref Kettering Vol 3b Page 255) and they had had at least five children: - Fredrick C, born circa 1863 (living with his sister and Henry’s brother Frederick for the 1881 census), Samuel J. born circa 1864, Dorothy J., born circa 1866, Arthur, born circa 1868, and Walter T. born 1870, all born in Rothwell, Northamptonshire. I suspect John died in 1872. Fredrick Fifield, Elizabeth J. Bottrill’s brother is also included in this census.

Henry married Sarah Williamson in October-December 1887 in Chorlton, Lancashire (Ref Chorlton Vol 8c Page 985). Sarah was born about 1862 in Heaton Mersey, Lancashire. They had the following known children:

For the census of 1891, Henry and Sarah are recorded at 45 Pickford Street, Stretford, with their son Ernest F. Also in the household is a Julia Williamson born 1884\85 recorded as step-daughter. It is possible therefore that Sarah was in fact a widow when she married Henry and Julia but I suspect Julia was Sarah's "natural" daughter birth registered Apr-Jun 1884 (Ref Stockport Vol 8a Page 101.)

For the census of 1911, he and Sarah are still at 45 Pickford Street, with Henry is working as a Tinplate Worker and their children Ernest and Jessie also included in the household.

There is a record of a Henry Dyer dying between April and June 1918 aged 67 in in Barton upon Irwell, Lancashire (Ref Barton upon Irwell Vol 8c Page 672) which is almost certainly "our" Henry. Sarah, his wife, passed away a few months later on 30 July 1918 at the Workhouse infirmary, Patricroft, aged 57, usual address 45 Pickford Street, Stretford, the widow of  Henry Dyer, sheet metal worker .The informant was Frederick Dyer of 35 Dudley Road Whalley Range, brother (actually brother in law) 

NOTE - I believe Henry's step-daughter Julia Dyer married a John Mattison in Jul-Sep 1909 (Ref Barton I. Vol 8c Page 1193) and had at least six children - Julia Mattison birth registered in Jan-Mar 1911 (Ref Richmond Y. Vol 9d Page 667), James Mattison birth registered in Jul-Sep 1912 (Ref Richmond Y. Vol 9d Page 1341), John Mattison birth registered in Oct-Dec 1914 (Ref Richmond Y. Vol 9d Page 242), Jean Mattison birth registered in Apr-Jun 1917 (Ref Richmond Y Vol 9d Page 1048), Marjorie Mattison birth registered in Jan-Mar 1919 (Ref Richmond Y. Vol 9d Page 940), and Winifred Mattison birth registered in Apr-Mar 1922 (Ref Richmond Y. Vol 9d Page 1318)

Samuel Dyer born in 1851 in Wellington

With the family for the census of 1871 and he cannot be identified in the 1881 census. There is a death record in the index for Newport, Oct-Dec 1876, of a Samuel Dyer aged 23 but this may or may not be him. (Ref  Newport, M. Vol 11a Page 97)

Amelia Jane Dyer born in 1854 in Wellington

I believe that Amelia "missing" from her parents household for the 1871 census was one and the same as the Jane Dyer, aged 17, born in Wellington, Somerset, working as a nurse in the household of Henry Robbins, secretary in the Coin Exchange.

After a re-appearance in the family household in Newport for the 1881 census, Amelia Jane returned to London to marry. She married John Prestridge between July and September 1882 in Wandsworth (Ref Wandsworth Vol 1D Page 1006). John was almost certainly the son of William Prestridge and Susan Bartlett.

For the census of 1891 Amelia and her husband, a labourer at the time, were living in Streatham, Wandsworth, London. The enumerator has managed to swap the couples places of birth (and this error was compounded by the Ancestry transcriber who recorded Ameilia as "Amelia M" where it is transparently "Amelia J"). Their are no children included in this census although one might have expected John and Amelia to have produced at least one or two in the period between their marriage of 1882 and this census. However sadly there are the deaths a few of Prestridge infants recorded in the Wandsworth district during this period.

It would seem that Amelia's husband John Prestridge died between January to March 1901 in Wandsworth (Ref Wandsworth Vol 1D Page 381), as for the census of 1901 Amelia was recorded as a widow working as a housekeeper in the household of J. Black Cameron, and Advertising Agent. As in 1871 Jane has been used in preference to  Amelia.

For the 1911 census what would seem almost certainly to be Amelia was recorded in the household of Charles William Nelson Lowe, a clergyman and schoolmaster, at 256 Trinity Road, Wandsworth, London. (A house with 10 rooms). She was identified as Amelia Jane Mould, aged 57, a "Cook - Domestic", born in Wellington, Somerset, and married for 8 years with no children. Also included in the household is what is assumed to be her husband Albert Henry S Mould, identified as aged 44, a "General Servant - Domestic", born in Melton, Staffordshire (I believe Melton should be Milton and Albert was probably Albert Henry Stephens Mould, son of Thomas Mould and Susannah Stephens, whose birth was registered in Wolstanton, Staffordshire in the April-June quarter of 1867). This census detail would mean that the couple woud have been wed in 1902-1903 which which fit with being after the demise of Amelia Jane's husband, John Prestridge. However I have been unable to find any obvious record of a marriage for the couple.

Mary Dyer born in 1859 in Wellington

For the census of 1871 Mary was recorded in the household of her "big" brother Frederick at 323 Collyhurst Road, Manchester, Lancashire. 

On 1st September 1875 in Newport, Mary married an Albert Thomas Kelson, the son of Joseph Kelson and Matlida Morgan. Mary and Albert had the following known children -

Note: The later 1911 census records 8 children one of whom has died prior to that census but there are only these seven identified from the previous 3 censuses 1881/1891/1901. I would suspect the missing child was a Henry John Kelson whose birth and death (aged 0) were both recorded in the BMD index for the October-December quarter of 1875 in Newport, Monmouthshire. Birth Vol 11a Page 163 & Death Vol 11a Page 103

Mary was recorded in the 1881 census as living with her parents, minus her husband but plus two children, Alfred J., and Thomas. Albert Kelson was not on the 1881 census because he was at sea. He was a merchant seamen. When not at sea he worked for his father Joseph, in the family bakery at 11 Chepstow Rd in Newport. They also owned a dairy. This information was supplied by Ann Golledge a great granddaughter of Mary and Albert through their son William Arthur (b 1882). Ann also had family traditions reference Sarah Buller and her background. (See Appendix H)

For the 1911 census Albert and Mary were once again recorded at 37 Glebe Street. Albert was identified as a Donkeyman in the Marine Service though currently not working and the two younger children are still at home, with Henrietta was working in a Stean Laundry and Albert in the Lysaghts Steel Mills. Albert and Mary have a grandaughter included in the census with the surname Lewis. Unfortunately the enumerator seems to have made an initial error with her first name and overwritten it making it almost illegible except for the last three letters which seem to be "ine". She was almost certainly Eva Gladys Queenie Lewis, daughter of their daughter, Mary, and her husband Edward John Lewis, who was born 23 Nov 1906, Newport, Monmouthshire. (Marriage to Albert Melville Fennell in registered in the Oct-Dec quarter of 1935, in Newport Market, Glamorgan, Gwent, Monmouthshire, and death registered November 1988, Pontypool, Gwent, Wales.)
