John's middle name was George and it looks like he may have been named after James Campbell Ramsden's (the father) brother.

This is for your James Campbell's father

All these James Campbells get a bit confusing Apart from the JamesCampbell[1844] my Grandfather was also James Campbell[1880] & my father Ronald James Campbell Ramsden !!! what a confusion !! I really appreciate all this new information but as a novice I need to sort it all out !

by ALV on 2012-07-06 03:05:10

I had to put my thinking hat on concerning the 1861 Census provided by asheppard as I went and looked for William TB Ramsden. I had found the wedding of 1851 but a child born 6 years previously did not fit. No other possible matches for a James (Campbell) Ramsden and Harriet in the previous 10 years.

So I went looking for William. I could not find any Ramsden born in either 1844 or 1845. Then I had a brainstorm and wondered if James was not William's birth father. I then looked up William Balcomb and I found him.

Births Registered Jun 1845 in the district of Romney Marsh, Kent (Vol 5 p428) William Thomas Balcomb.

So obviously, when James Campbell Sr married Harriet he adopted him hence William Thomas (T) Balcomb (B) Ramsden.

Hi Alv
Are you saying my G.G.G grandfather was not a ramsden but a balcomb?

by ALV on 2012-07-06 03:28:55

If William was your GGG grandfather yes but the information you have provided indicates to me that James Campbell Ramsden born 1853 was your GGG grandfather. If I am wrong let me know. :)

by ALV on 2012-07-06 03:35:50

William TB Ramsden was not a born Ramsden.

The other 3 children of James Campbell and Harriet were Ramsdens. That is Henrietta Eliza born 1851 (June 1851 Vol 5 p474 Romney Marsh District), James Campbell and John George.
