Beecrofts of Southwark/Bermondsey
Arthur James Beecroft was born in Southwark - he is my gt gt grandfather - trying to trace his parents. The 1871 Census shows him aged 8 with a Ebenezer Beecroft aged 11 - is this a brother? at Brunswick House New Windsor as a pupil. I know this was a boarding school during that period. A visitor on the census was a Ann Beecroft aged 84 - is this his grandmother? If so then the 1851 census identifies her as married to a Gervase Beecroft - it appears they had four children William born 1811, Mary Ann born 1816 James born 1824 and Ebenezer 1823 - also found in the 1841 census,and Gevais in the 1831 and 1821 Southwark Rent Books however there the trail goes cold. Any information greatly recieved.
