1901 East Dean, Cinderford St John Parish, Gloucestershire, England
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Henry Hale Head M 52 Coal miner. Coleford, Gloucestershire
Alice Hale Wife F 42 Cinderford, Gloucestershire
Joseph Hale Son M 21 Coal miner. Cinderford, Gloucestershire
Fred Hale Son M 18 Coal miner. Cinderford, Gloucestershire
Earnest Hale Son M 15 Coal miner. Cinderford, Gloucestershire
Frank Hale Son M 13 Scholar. Cinderford, Gloucestershire
Gertrude Hale Daughter F 6 Cinderford, Gloucestershire
Amelia Hale Daughter F 2 Cinderford, Gloucestershire

The baptism PRs (see previous post) show Joseph and Fred were both born Ruspidge nr Cinderford, 1876 & 1882 resp) and from John's previous marriage to Elisabeth. No sign of Bessie in this 1901 census as we expected, or any other sister(s) of similar age. Youngest son Frank was also Elisabeth's.
Cannot find a PR but GlosBMD shows Henry's next child Gertrude was with 2nd wife Alice nee Brown, as suspected from the gap in ages on census, and Elisabeth's death in 1892 of course;

(There is also a baptism PR for Alice).

Back to the marriage of Bertha Hale to Timothy Brown on Christmas Day 1893.

Was groom Timothy Brown related to Henry's new wife ?
He resides in Greenwich, Kent (East London nowadays), is this linked to Bertha's sisters Bessie and Sarah also moving to London ? Seems likely !

The 1901 Census shows the couple lived in Greater London for a while, and at about the right timeframe. Before that the Census shows they were in Timothy's home area in Dorset.

I see there are a couple of "Langton"s in Dorset, one near Blandford Forum, and Langton Matravers which may be more likely, given it's particularly known for limestone quarrying (but so is much of Dorset, so ...??)
See http://members.iinet.net.au/~suegar/langton.htm

By 1900 the family were in Ladywell Kent. Nowadays this is part of Lewisham,
see https://hidden-london.com/gazetteer/ladywell/

1901 Lewisham, St Mary's Parish, London.
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Timothy Brown Head M 35 Stone Mason. Langton, Dorsetshire
Bertha Brown Wife F 29 Rusfridge, Gloucestershire
Elizabeth E Brown Daughter F 6 Langton, Dorsetshire
Marjorie M Brown Daughter F 0 Ladywell, Kent


By 1905 they were back in East Dean, presumably the Ruspidge end of Cinderford ?;

1911 East Dean, Gloucestershire, England,
Household Role Sex Age Birthplace
Timothy Brown Head M 45 Stone mason at stone firms. Langton, Dorsetshire
Bertha Brown Wife F 39 Ruspidge, Gloucestershire
Marjorie Maud Brown Daughter F 10 Ladywell, Kent
Walter John Brown Son M 6 Ruspidge, Gloucestershire
Frederick James Brown Son M 4 Ruspidge, Gloucestershire

Both the son's Baptisms at St Johns are in the PRs, and also Dorothy Adeline born 7th June 1915, father still a stone mason, and all still in Ruspidge.

I have NO idea where White Chimneys Wick is ?? Doubt it's the Wick in far north of Scotland ?

Maybe worth following up wrt the rest of her family, did they move outside the Forest ?
