Tom Clarke PREECE born 1862 Bream (General)

by whispernomore @, Friday, April 07, 2023, 10:46 (439 days ago)

Tom was my great uncle and married Edith Baldwin in 1888, together they had 8 children.
From family tales he was also in a relationship with Ediths sister Harriet(t) Baldwin.
Harriet remained a spinster but also had 7 children possibly, if family stories are true also by Tom.
This would make him not only my great uncle but also my great grandfather.
Sadly all my grandmothers generation are deceased.
I was hoping that maybe someone on this forum may have heard similar tales about him.He is not named on any of the birth certificates of Harriets children.
In fact on my grandmothers marriage certificate she names her grandfather George Baldwin as her father.

It would be interesting to know when the various children got married, if they named a father on their marriage certificates.

Firstly my sincere apologies for the delay in responding to both of you. Since posting I have spent a week in bed with high fever....Happy Easter me!I am finally up again and able to do a little more checking.
I will respond to both of you as soon as I am able to add any further information.
Thank you so much for your help already .

As requested the marriages of Harriets children to the best of my knowledge.

Leonard BALDWIN married Alice Gammond and as you have found out there was no father named for Leonard.

Gertie(Gertrude) BALDWIN 1904-1959 was never married and at various times worked in service with her sister Nora.
Bertha BALDWIN b.1901 I have been unable to find very little about her and as yet no sign of any marriage other than one with a father named John, her age would be correct as would the church of the Holy Trinity Dean Forest. However with the numerous Baldwins in the Forest, also one of the witnesses is Catherine Baldwin which is not a name that has cropped up previously.

Edith BALDWIN who married Tom Clarke PREECE once again named her father as Geoge Baldwin who was in fact her grandfather.

Nora BALDWIN (my grandmother) married Albert MORGAN in Llanishen Glamorganshire on August 2nd 1920 in the Parish Church. Family lore states they ran away to marry and must have been in Llanishen for 4 weeks as the banns were read. The address for both on the marriage certificate was the same for both.
However, though we have Alberts name we do not know where he came from or if any of his information is indeed correct. I say this because Nora gave her age incorrectly presumably so that she didn't need parental permission she was born 1900. She also names her grandfather George as her father the same as Edith had done. (It is possible they all thought as him as their father but more likely did so to simply have a name on the certificate)According to my records George died in 1926. Both Nora and Albert stated that their fathers were deceased.
As I say there are far too many discrepancies on the marriage certificate to know what to believe.

I have no information on Albert MORGAN because due to family lore, she left him more or less straight after the wedding and returned home to Lydb and it was only after pressure from Noras brothers that they got back together if only briefly. My father was born in 1925 but never knew his father and it's more than possible Albert never knew he had a son.

Mary Rhoda BALDWIN married Ernest William Pritchard SALMON in 1924 again I do not have their marriage certificate so do not know if she named a father.

William BALDWIN married Doris May DAVIES 1934 again I haven't found a marriage certificate for this to see if any father mentioned.

Stanley BALDWIN died at 16months so never reached marrige age.

Apologies for all the confusing information I will try to see if I can get hold of the wedding certificates for those unknown.

Apologies in my last post in this thread I mentioned Edith Baldwin as a child of Harriet but in fact, she was the sister of Harriet, not the daughter, and therefore on her marriage certificate to Tom Clarke PREECE George BALDWIN was correctly written as her father.
The whole family is confusing.

Yes, this Bertha is probably one we can eliminate as parents don't tally. It's bad enough there are so many Baldwins with the added problem of them all using the same Christian names. I think I have found at least 2 of each Christian name.

It becomes even more interesting when I start on my fathers' name MORGAN!

Mary Rhoda BALDWIN who married Ernest Ernest W P SALMON is definitely one of mine and the 1939 census shows my grandmother and father living with them. I also knew them personally though Aunt Mary died when I was younger.
Eileen Salmon the daughter has now passed away.
