    hi, I have a Mary Hummerstone who married a John Waldron (Baker) in 1832, St Pancras. On every single census she stated her birth as Epping, Essex the dates/ages vary a little putting her birth between 1800-1814.

    There is another Mary Ann hummerstone born 1801/2 in Theydon Garnon, who goes on to marry a Mr Merriday.

    I seemed in my early days of researching to have named grinnel as her father but can’t find a reason as to why I thought this.

    Any help would be great.

    Not sure how this will help.

    FMP have:

    Mary Ann Hummerston
    Gender: Female
    Birth Date: 21 Dec 1801
    Christening Date: 21 Feb 1802, EPPING, ESSEX
    Father's Name: Grinnell Hummerston
    Mother's Name: Sarah

    Theydon Garnon is only about 3.4 miles from Epping.

    They also have this, obviously not the same Mary :-

    Mary Hummerston
    Gender: Female
    Burial date: 24 Jun 1801, Thoydon-Garnon, Essex, England
    Age 4

    And of course the marriage to Mr Merriday

    Marriage date: 01 Sep 1821, Thoydon-Mount, Essex
    Edward Merriday
    Mary Hummerstone

    This maybe where you got Grinnel from:

    Mary Ann Hummerston
    Birth Date: 21 Dec 1801
    Baptism Date: 21 Feb 1802
    Baptism Place: Epping,Essex,England
    Father: Grinnell Hummerston
    Mother: Sarah

    Snap Chimp (well some of it anyway)!

    Have you an Ancestry sub? There's a tree on there that has quite a bit about a Mary Hummerston and a Mary Ann Hummerston being half sisters. Unfortunately at present there are problems with the Ancestry UK site and it won't work properly for me. If I can get back there later I'll let you know more details.

    I’ve always had the two Mary’s in my tree as 1/2 sisters, so it might be my tree (Thomas-Day). The one I’m after is the one that didn’t go on to marry Merriday. Mine married John Waldron in ‘32. There was also a mary hummerstone christened at Westminster area 1813 with father a Grinwell which is the one I’d put down but I’m not convinced I got it right, like I said it was early days in researching but I can’t seem to find the alternatives atm. I think I need look at the 1801/2 baptisms again I didn’t see there were two.

    I originally thought Grinnel had married Sarah (Newton) and then Mary Ellis.

    And I thought the unusual surname would make life easier .

    Thanks for your help
