    • BIGAMY???? - Posted 21 Dec 2012 by ElaineSherman93

      Joseph Stocks had 7 children between 1825-1837 with his wife Hannah Foley. Most of his children died in childhood except Mary (1829) and John (1831).

      In Sept 1829 Joseph Stocks committed manslaughter when he killed his brother in law. Joseph was imprisoned from Sept and on the Lent Assises was sentenced to a further two months.

      Joseph must have left Hannah some time between 1837-1840

      Joseph marrys Sarah Goodyear in London 1840. The register states he is from Chatteris and his father is Samuel but it states he is a batchelor. (is this marriage bigamous?)

      On the 1841 census Joseph is living in Erith, Kent and is a fisherman, Sarah is not with him.

      Joseph and Sarah's first child is born 1841 and he has 8 children with her between 1841 - 1853.

      On the 1841 census Joseph's son John (1831) is living with his grandfather Samuel and on the 1851 census with an aunt
      Hannah Foley (Joseph's first wife) marries Philip Cawthorn in Chatteris 1843 (is this also a bigamous marriage?)

      On the 1851 census Hannah is no longer living with Philip, she is listed as married and head of household and is living with Mary Stocks her daughter to Joseph.

      On the 1861 census Hannah is listed as married and head of household and occupied as Agricultural Labourer, Mary is listed as a pauper.

      On the 1861 census Philip is listed as being a lodger living with Mary Thorn and children George (1856) and Rebecca (1861)

      Hannah dies 1868

      Philip marries Mary 1869

      On the 1871 census Philip now has 4 children to Mary.
