GLO'STER GOLDEN WEDDING
Mr and Mrs James Brain, formerly of Cinderford, have celebrated their Golden Wedding in Gloucester. They were married at Lydbrook Baptist Chapel on April 11, 1891. Mr Brain, who is about 73 and still very fit, came from Ruardean Hill


I THINK this is James, but it's not a rare name on Ruardean Hill, so ??

1871, Ruardean Hill, East Dean, Gloucestershire, England.
Household Role Gender Age Birthplace
John Brain Head M 28 Married. Coal miner. East Dean, Gloucestershire
Jane Brain Wife F 27 East Dean, Gloucestershire
Alice Brain Daughter F 8 East Dean, Gloucestershire
Sophia Brain Daughter F 5 East Dean, Gloucestershire
James Brain Son M 2 East Dean, Gloucestershire
Jane Elizabeth Brain Daughter F 0 East Dean, Gloucestershire

So, if correct, James is born abt 1869, as per the newspaper article & like wife Annie. If he was born locally, then this is him, the name's not as common as I thought, again from FreeBMD, cannot find him in this site's PRs;

Surname First name(s) District Vol Page
Births Dec 1868 (>99%)
BRAIN James Westbury S. 6a 226 [/b]

To my surprise there are none in Monmouth or Ross Districts.


1881, Ruardean Hill, East Dean, Gloucestershire, England.
Household Role Gender Age Birthplace
John Brain Head M 29 Married. Miner. East Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Jane Brain Wife F 36 Married. East Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Alice Brain Daughter F 18 East Dean, Gloucestershire, England
James Brain Son M 13 Scholar. East Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Elizabeth Brain Daughter F 11 East Dean, Gloucestershire, England
Thos Brain Son M 6 East Dean, Gloucestershire, England

(SEE NOTE ON NEXT POST REF GIVEN AGE OF JOHN BRAIN)

1891 ???

In many ways, the following seems a good fit, at an Inn on Cinderford's High Street.
But why M instead of Annie Bessie ??.
Need to see the actual image, FamilySearch do have a reputation for unlikely transcriptions .. ??


1901, High Street, Woodside St Stephens, East Dean, Gloucestershire, England.
Household Role Gender Age Birthplace
James Brain Head M 32 Inn keeper. Ruardean Hill, Gloucestershire
M Brain Wife F 31 Lydbrook, Gloucestershire
Annie M Brain Daughter F 6 Ruardean Hill, Gloucestershire
William J Brain Son M 5 Ruardean Hill, Gloucestershire
Emily B Brain Daughter F 4 Cinderford
Edgar J Brain Son M 2 Cinderford
Ivy L Brain Daughter F 0 Cinderford
Annie S Pimple Servant F 16 General Domestic Servant. London

I think this was at the afore-mentioned Bell in the Lower High Street, see next post.

Eldest daughter Annie M Brain could well be named after her mother. Are the "M"s actually "B"s ?.
The following Baptism PRs fit very nicely, wrt place & occupation etc, from the FoD website.
Cannot find Marriages etc except where shown, or on later "pub" post.
