Taylor Part 1 (Parish Records)

Initial investigation of the named Witnesses does not indicate a family connection and is more likely they were known to each other at place of employment as Charley VENN and William GAINER were Hotel Porters.

There is a Birth Registration as follows:
Child Surname Child Forename Mother's Former Name Year District Office Register Entry
TAYLOR Ann 1867 Forest of Dean Monmouth, Coleford 23 373

This entry suggests that Ann was born to a single mother and there does not appear to be a baptism.

There is also this baptism:
Year: 1872
Month: Aug
Day: 11
Parents_Surname: TAYLOR
Child_Forenames: John
Fathers_Forenames: [not stated]
Mothers_Forenames: Esther
Mothers_Surname:
Residence: Coleford
Occupation: Single
Officiating_Minister: Thomas Holbrow BA PC
Event: Baptism
Memoranda:
Notes:
Register_Reference: P93 IN I/6
Page_Number: 68
Parish_Chapel: Coleford

It is also noted that a resident of Coleford was Edward ABBOTT (sometimes known as Edwin). This is the 1861 Census

1861 Census:
Incline Pitch, Coleford
Household Number Given Name Surname Relationship Age Estimated Birth Year Gender Birth City Birth County Birth Country
108 Edward Abbot Head 36 1825 Male N
108 Esther Abbot Wife 27 1834 Female Coleford Gloucestershire England
108 John Johnson Stepson 4 1857 Male Coleford Gloucestershire England
108 Elizabeth Tayler Mother-in-law 70 1791 Female Coleford Gloucestershire England

Edward's occupation is Chimney Sweep.
This Census suggests that Edward married Esther Taylor but I have yet to find a marriage.
John Johnson's birth appears as:
Child Surname Child Forename Mother's Former Name Year District Office Register Entry
TAYLOR John 1857 Forest of Dean Monmouth, Coleford 12 425
Mother's Former Name is Blank

This would appear to be Esther's baptism:
Year: 1833
Month: May
Day: 5
Parents_Surname: TAYLOR
Child_Forenames: Hester
Fathers_Forenames: Richard
Mothers_Forenames: Elizabeth
Mothers_Surname:
Residence: Whitecliff
Occupation: Labourer
Officiating_Minister: Edw[ar]d B. Bagshawe Off[iciatin]g Min[ister]
Event: Baptism
Memoranda:
Notes:
Register_Reference: P227 IN 1/6
Page_Number: 113
Parish_Chapel: Newland

Our next step is to locate the Abbot family in the 1871 Census:
Whitecliff, Coleford
Household schedule number Given Name Surname Relationship Age Estimated Birth Year Gender Birth Place
152 John Taylor Head 40 1831 Male Newent Gloucestershire England
152 Ann Taylor Wife 45 1826 Female Berry Hill Gloucestershire England
152 James Taylor Son 20 1851 Male Whitecliff Gloucestershire England
152 Emily Taylor Daughter 16 1855 Female Whitecliff Gloucestershire England
152 George Taylor Son 14 1857 Male Whitecliff Gloucestershire England
152 Sarah D Taylor Daughter 10 1861 Female Whitecliff Gloucestershire England
152 John Taylor Son 7 1864 Male Whitecliff Gloucestershire England
152 Arthur Taylor Son 5 1866 Male Whitecliff Gloucestershire England
153 Edward Abbate Head 53 1818 Male London England
153 John Abbate Son 14 1857 Male Coleford Glos
153 William Abbate Son 11 1860 Male Coleford Glos

Edward/Edwin is listed as a Widower and his Occupation - Chimney Sweep.

Next search is for Esther in 1871 Census and she is with 3 children in Monmouth Workhouse:
Household schedule number Given Name Surname Relationship Age Estimated Birth Year Gender Birth City Birth County Birth Country
200 Esther Taylor Inmate 38 1833 Female Newland Gloucestershire England
200 Anne Taylor Inmate 3 1868 Female Newland Gloucestershire England
200 Edwin Taylor Inmate 8 1863 Male Newland Gloucestershire England
200 Alice Taylor Inmate 5 1866 Female Newland Gloucestershire England

Birth Registrations for the other children are:
Child Surname Child Forename Mother's Former Name Year District Office Register Entry
TAYLOR Thomas Edwin 1862 Forest of Dean Monmouth, Coleford 17 296
TAYLOR Elizabeth Alice 1864 Forest of Dean Monmouth, Coleford 20 131
