  • ID: I40193
  • Name: James King
  • Sex: M
  • LVG: ABT 1846 Hornsey
  • Occupation: Cab proprietor
  • Note:

    His name and profession is given on daughter Sarah?s marriage certificate 1865.
    However, was he presumably dead by 1865, since he was not a witness at Sarah?s marriage?
    There is no James King in Hornsey in the 1841, 1851 or 1861 census.
    There is no reference in the 1866 Kelly Directory for Hornsey for 1866 to James King, either under 'Commercial' or 'Private resident' in Hornsey, Crouch End, Muswell Hill, Fortis Green or Stroud Green. As you'll appreciate, the population was very small at this time so it's strange that his name is not included. The Carrier listed is George Bettridge.
    The Hornsey Parish Records are held in the London Metropolitan Archives. I can give you a reference, although you may well have it. St Mary's, Hornsey Marriage Registers 1860 - 1874
    Microfilm X097/141 or in Document form Reference DRO/020/A/01/014. The LMA
    is at 40 Northampton Road, London EC1R 0HB; email address

    (Also 1862 Directory and Post Office Directory of London and Nine Counties for 1845. ?I was unable to find an entry for James King in the commercial sections for Highgate, Hornsey, Crouch End, Muswell Hill and Stroud Green.?)
    1861 census has a KING, James age 45 in Bethnal Green. He is not a cab proprietor.
    Could it be at all relevant that two of his grandchildren named their daughters Winifred - ie could James?s wife have been called Winifred? However no James with a wife Winifred in the IGI.
