Fanny LUXFORD married to Alfred James WHITWICK ( born about 1860)

Query by AlisonParrack

After a brief rest , i am now trying to find out more about Fanny LUXFORD, who married James Alfred Whitwick, these would have been the maternal great grand parents to my own maternal grandmother, Charlotte Pelling born 1910 in Woking Surrey, died in 1910 Colchester , Essex. Does anyone know anything about when she married James Alfred Whitwick ? Or when she was born and died. All i know is about her husband , my maternal great great grandfather, and even that is scant information. I don't know how old she was when she married him, or what year it was, or when she was born or died. They had a daughter Charlotte , who was born in Cranliegh, St Nicholas,Surrey England, 1888, who became my mothers mum's mum...( my great grandmother, who's name i also carry as part of my name, but Fanny so far has no details other than her name .
Can anyone help, there were several Fanny Luxfords... but, some were born well before James Alfred Whitwick.... so might well have been too old to have had a child with him.

Here's hoping someone has found her in their family tree and can help .

Always hopeful,

Thank you .

This could be Fanny's marriage from

Marriages Dec 1882

Luxford Fanny Reigate 2a 240 to
Whitwick Alfred Reigate 2a 240

I found these baptisms from Surrey England Baptisms 1813-1912
Father: Alfred James Whitwick or Alfred Whitwick
Mother: Fanny

Ref CRA/3/2
St Nicholas, Cranleigh

Charlotte May - bap 6 May 1888
Harry - bap 3 Apr 1892
Alice - bap 19 Aug 1894 (as Whetwick)
Annie Elizabeth - bap 5 Jul 1896

There are other children according to the Census

1891 Census has William 7, Charlotte 3 & Eliza 1
1901 Census has William 17, Mary 13, Ellen 10, Harry 9, Alice 6, Annie 4 & Amelia 2

I found these births for Whitwick on freebmd

Births Dec 1883
WHITWICK William Alfred Reigate 2a 172

Births Jun 1888
WHITWICK Charlotte May Hambledon 2a 139

Births Jun 1890
Whitwick Eliza Ellen Hambledon 2a 137

Births Mar 1892
Whitwick Harry Hambledon 2a 146

Births Sep 1894
Whitwick Alice Hambledon 2a 143

Births Jun 1896
Whitwick Annie Elizabeth Hambledon 2a 154

Births Sep 1898
Whitwick Amelia Hambledon 2a 155

Births Sep 1910
WHITWICK Frederick W Hambledon 2a 177

It looks like Alfred was born about 1860 in Westbourne Hampshire and Fanny was born about 1857 in Wisborough Green Sussex.

according to the 1911 census Alfred & Fanny had 7 children all living (think it should be 9) and had been married 28 years, which would be 1883, the 1882 marriage above looks very good for being right. Living with them is Amelia 12yrs.

A copy of the marriage certificate above will give you more details on both them and their fathers.

Thank you so much for the finds which supports the family tree and helps confirm it so far.The more I find out the more I see the name Charlotte passed down through the family. It is part of my own name too and this gives me a sense of connection to the family that is more significant now than it was before beginning. Y family tree.Thank gou zo much for the information about Fanny and Alfred..and their family.
