A grandaughter Jane Ryall Spencer 6 is shown on the 1851 census with Henry and Catherine Spencer in Tavistock.
They are my husbands gr gr grandparents.Is anyone related to the Lakemans/Ryalls that I have listed?
Catherine Lakeman b1789/90 at Kelly Devon married Henry Spencer at Milton Abbott in 1816?.
They had 12 children-mainly at Tavistock-but lost the middle 6. Three died in one week in 1830.
One child had Hayman as a second name so possible link there.
living children on 1851 and 1881 were
Mary Ann Spencer 1817. -dairy farmer--not married
Thos Wm 1819(-married but no obvious children
Catherine 1820--later married a BOLT but was widow by 1881-again no obvious children
Annie-1832 she was matron of Sheffield Infirmary in 1881 and Devon Infirmary in1901 aged 68
Jane Lakeman Spencer 1834--she married John Prideaux and had 4 children
Eliza 1836-- dressmaker did not marry
There is also a granddaughter Jane b1845 at Tavistock--not sure whose child she is.
On 1851 census-There is a Thomas Lakeman aged 35 Dairyman in Tavistock with his wife Maria and children George 8 and Maria 5 both born Milton abbott. Thomas might be a cousin and in partnership even with Mary Ann later.
I am looking for Catherine Lakemans parents and possible siblings.
Henry Spencer was born in Liverpool but his father might have gone there to work and then returned.
Any help or connections gratefully received
