    Ezekiel is another of my Saxlingham Nethergate, Norfolk bunch; born Christmas Day (obviously) 1845, the birth reg and baptism [19 Dec 1847] don't have the Christmas middle name but he starts using it as an adult. Son of Thomas, a bricklayer, and Charlotte (nee Kemp).

    At some point he moves to London, where he is a bricklayer like his father.

    1851 and 1861 in Saxlingham Nethergate
    1871 where he is enumerated as Henry, in Silverton (Silvertown?) Essex
    1881 - 1911 in Camberwell (1901 enumerated as Ernest)

    I cannot find an actual marriage, but his wife is Elizabeth Lazell, born Cranham, Essex (1844)

    Children, from census and GRO indexes have been identified as:

    1) Henry LAZELL b Dec 1863 in Romford -- though he uses the name Wilson all his life
    2) Beatrice Clarissa b Dec 1866 in Poplar
    3) Alice Christiana b Dec 1868 in Kensington, died Dec 1869 MEOT
    4) Adelaide b Dec 1870 MEOT, died Dec 1872
    5) Ellen b Dec 1872 in Poplar, not traced after 1891
    6) Thomas John b Dec 1874 Poplar, died Mar 1875
    7) Ada Mary b Mar 1876 in Poplar, not traced after 1901
    8) Hannah Mary b Mar 1878 in Greenwich
    9) Emma Jane b Mar 1880 in Greenwich
    10) Ezekiel Christmas b Mar 1882 in Camberwell
    11 & 12) Frederick - b Dec 1885 in Camberwell, share birth reg ref
    William Henry - but William has no mmn recorded, but is recorded as son in 1891, not found after
    13) Jessie Beatrice b Dec 1888 Camberwell - no mmn recorded though she is enumerated as daughter - died Dec 1896

    As you can see I have 13 children, but the 1911 census states 11 children, 6 living, 5 died.

    I'm still puzzled by the two that have no mmn recorded. they could possibly be grandchildren rather than children, but I will have to think about birth certs at a later time.

    That would get me to 11 children, but try as I might I have 7 living children, unless Henry isn't counted as one of the children of the marriage, that would leave me 6 definitely living, but still leave the overall count as incorrect.

    And why claim a number of years married that allows Henry to be seen as legitimate, he's long since left home anyway. Was someone's counting just a bit off?

    Anyway this family is definitely still a work in progress. I think i just needed to get it all written down in a more coherent manner than my scraps of paper :D

    The Essex Baptism Index has Henry's bap recorded
    6/4/1864 at Romford St Edward the Confessor
    interestingly his name is Henry Hammond Lazell (mother Elizabeth, father blank),
    perhaps a nod to who his father was;)

    Ah Thank you I hadn't found that. I'm counting him as part of my family, since he always used the name Wilson, but given the gap between him and his sister i do think Ezekiel probably wasn't the father

    Any chance a Will or Obit will give further details?

    Probably, I haven't quite got that far though. Trying to just tidy what I do have. Actually I think I'm having a break first :)
