52 ancestors Mary Flower/Kenyon

13 Mar

I know very little about Mary Flower and what I do know is largely because of this document, it shows that she and her husband Joseph Kenyon were evicted from Bolsover, Derbyshire because they were dependent on the parish but did not come from there in the first place so had to be moved on with their five young children William aged 9, Charles aged 6, Ann aged 4, Henry aged 2 and Elizabeth six months. They went on to have two more children, Joseph and Thomas.

Mary is my Great x4 Grandmother, she married Joseph in Mansfield in 1806 and is living with him in Worksop,  with their grandson Robert (son of Ann),  in 1841. Joseph is described in the census as an agricultural worker, so hopefully things had improved for the family. I am descended from their son Henry, their Grandson Barnet Kenyon went on to become an MP.

    When you blogged about your family tree, were you wondering if any distant relatives would find it and get in touch? If I am reading your blog correctly, we are both descendants of Joseph Kenyon, as I am the great grandson of Barnet Kenyon MP
