      Middle Chinnock, Edward baptised 08.03.1794

      Edward and wife Patience (Gray) moved to Fisherton Anger probably around 1824.
      Although he had moved his family on by 1841 to Newport, other Pattens, born out of county, remained in Wiltshire. This includes an elderly Elizabeth Patten and a younger Sarah Patten, schoolmistress, aged 35 ? I thought this was age 55 when I originally came across the entry and thought I had found Edward?s widowed mother (nee Elizabeth Lawcock) and his sister Sarah. Still a strong possibility.
      William Patten was also settled in Fisherton Anger in 1841 with a growing family and wife Elizabeth Napier who he married in 1827.
      Edward was a carpenter by trade and records show that there was a great deal of building work in Fisherton Anger and Salisbury at that time.

      So the likely scenario is that Edward Patten was baptised in West Chinnock, on 8 March 1794. His parents were Arthur Patten and Elizabeth Lawcock, married at WC on 24 Feb 1789. In 1820s, for reasons unknown but likely to be work related and/or, the possible death of Arthur, Edward and family, his brother, sister(?) and mother had moved to Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire.

      Dear Mark,

      Thanks for your quick reply.

      I have been working on this for some little while and I am still not completely certain of all of my facts.

      I believe that William Patten is the son of Arthur Patten & Elizabeth Lowcock.

      Groom Arthur Patten status - of -, - Bride Elizabeth Lowcock status - of -, - married on 24 Feb 1789 at parish West Chinnock by - Witnesses - Notes - I would love a copy of this certificate if you know where it can be obtained

      There were 4 children in total:

      West Chinnock, Sara? Patten, baptised 29.10.1789
      Middle Chinnock, Anne/Annie/Aime baptised 11.09.1791
      Middle Chinnock, Edward baptised 08.03.1794..........................My GG Grandfather
      Chiselborough, William baptised 1803.

      Edward and wife Patience (Gray) moved to Fisherton Anger probably around 1824.
      Although he had moved his family on by 1841 to Newport, other Pattens, born out of county, remained in Wiltshire.

      So the likely scenario is that Edward Patten was baptised in West Chinnock, on 8 March 1794. His parents were Arthur Patten and Elizabeth Lawcock, married at WC on 24 Feb 1789.

      William Patten

      Married Elizabeth Peach Napier on 1 June 1827 at Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire. Offspring baptised at FA were:

      John, 6 July 1828
      William, 5 Sept 1830
      Mary Ann, 1 Sept 1833
      George, 18 June 1837
      Martha, 18 June 1837
      Charles, born c1839, baptism not yet checked. Info from 1841 census only.

      All six children survived until 1841 at least and were living with their parents in Fisherton Street, Fisherton Anger. William senior’s occupation was male servant. He was born out of county. A burial is recorded at FA for an Elizabeth Patten, aged 39, on 1 May 1842. I have yet to locate William in 1851 and suspect that he either died or went to sea. The children were scattered but some ended up in Southhampton and hence the speculation that William, after the death of Elizabeth went to sea and was not recorded in any following census.

      In the research so far I have found the following:-

      Mary Ann Patten was born on 1 Sep 1833 in Fisherton Anger, Wiltshire, England. She was baptized on 1 Sep 1833 in Fisherton Anger, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England. She died in 1867 in Southampton, Hampshire, England.

      Mary Ann Patten and Richard Targett were married on 10 Oct 1852 in St Mary's Church, Southampton, England. Richard Targett was born on 9 Dec 1827 in Old Basing, Hampshire, England. Mary Ann Patten and Richard Targett had the following children:

      Thank you for your kind offer to send a copy of the marriage certificate I would really like to have it.

      Mary Ann Targett was born in 1853 in Southampton, Hampshire,

      Caroline Targett was born on 9 Jan 1854 in 2 James Street, Southampton,

      William Edward Targett was born in 1856 in Droxford, Hampshire, England.

      Sarah Ann Targett was born in 1858 in Southampton, Hampshire, England.

      Elizabeth Jane Targett was born in 1861 in Southampton, Hampshire, England.

      Henry George Targett was born in 1863 in Southampton, Hampshire, England.

      Kate Targett was born in 1865 in Southampton, Hampshire, England.

      I have looked for the children, very briefly, in 1851. Possibilities are:

      Martha, aged 17, born Salisbury, Wiltshire, in service, Southampton, St Marys. She later married William Tizzard
      William, aged 19, born Salisbury, Wiltshire, lodging and working as a costermonger, also Southampton, St Marys

      I can not find Charles and George in 1851 Census but a possibility is that they were returned to Somerset and were recorded as being born in West Chinnock (Som) HO107/1930/~F472 living together at the Union House Preston Road, Yeovil, Somerset.

      In the 1861 Census (RG9/1362) George was living with the Pitcher family as a lodger and Baker's Servant at, Private House, Melbury Osmond, Dorset

      By 1871, George and wife Elizabeth (b Dorset) had returned to Somerset and were living with their family in Yeovil. He was a baker.

      In 1861, Charles Patten was lodging in Yeovil and working as a chimney Sweep.

      I still need to trace the origins of Arthur Patten and how he fits into the huge Patten Family in Chinnock and Chiselborough. Based on my progress to date and one step forward two steps back methodology, it may take some time. I guess that is the reason we enjoy doing this research

      Kind Regards....Keith
