Vincent Family Tree, St Mary Bourne to Richmond, Surrey

Save the Honey Bee
We start our family tree with Thomas Vincent.
According to census records, Thomas was born in 1801 in St Mary Bourne, Hampshire, England. :celebrate
I can't find any baptism or birth records to prove this. He may have been registered in another part of Hampshire. On the 4th July 1824 in Wooburn, Buckinghamshire, England, Thomas married Elizabeth Hancock who was born in 1802 in Buckinghamshire. Elizabeth had a brother, Jonathan, who married Eliza Hester (keep these two in mind, all will be revealed later).
Thomas Vincent and Elizabeth had 7 children. William Vincent (1827-1893) born Wooburn, Bucks. David Vincent (1830-?) also born in Wooburn.
Joseph Vincent (1832-1890) born in Burnham, Bucks. James Vincent (1834-1882) born in Burnham. George Vincent (1835-1884) born in Burnham. Kezia Vincent (1836-1914) born in Burnham, and Jane Vincent (1838-?) born in Burnham.

Elizabeth Vincent, nee Hancock, wife of Thomas Vincent, died in December 1855 age 53. She was buried on the 16th of December 1855 in Burnham, Buckinghamshire. Elizabeth's brother Jonathan also died that same year, 1855. He had been married to Eliza Hester on the 27th August 1837 in Burnham. Jonathan and Eliza had 6 children. Finding themselves both widowed, it seems Thomas and Eliza became close. On the 5th of February at Eton Registry Office, Thomas Vincent married Eliza Hancock nee Hester. :kiss Thomas was 56 and Eliza 44.
On the 12th December 1858 in Burnham, Buckinghamshire, Thomas and Eliza had a son, Alfred Vincent (1858-1905).

Eliza Vincent, wife of Thomas, died in 1863 and was buried in Burnham on the 12th March 1863 in Burnham. She was 49. A little more information about Eliza, Thomas's second wife, will explain who 'Martha' is in the 1881 census. In the early part of 1836, before she married Jonathan Hancock on the 27th August 1837, Eliza Hester had a child, Martha Hester. Martha was raised by Jonathan and Eliza. Martha married Walter Winch, who was a Beerhouse Keeper in Burnham.

In our particular branch of the tree, we now follow the line down to James Vincent, son of Thomas Vincent and his first wife Elizabeth (nee Hancock). :celebrate
James Vincent was born in Burnham, Buckinghamshire, England (according to census reports) about 1833. I couldn't find James in the 1851 and 1861 census records. The next record I have of him is his marriage.

On the 21st October 1855 at Holy Trinity, Hounslow, London, James Vincent, of full age, bachelor, labourer, residing in Hounslow, father, Thomas Vincent, labourer.
to Hannah Petty, of full age, spinster, residing in Hounslow, father John Petty,
. James and Hannah both signed their names. The witnesses were James Payne (who made his mark x) and Keiza Payne. (Keiza is James Vincent's sister, she married James Payne in 1853).

James and Hannah had 5 children. James Vincent (1862-1910) Keziah Agnes Vincent (1865-1952) Jane Elizabeth Vincent (1866-1923) George Henry Vincent (1870-1908) and Hannah Emily Vincent (1871-?).

Our next direct ancestor is James Vincent, son of James Vincent and Hannah Petty. :celebrate

James Vincent was born in 1862 in Richmond, Surrey.
On the 10th of September 1884 at St Matthias Church in Richmond, Surrey, James Vincent, age 22, a bachelor, Carman, residing in Richmond, father James Vincent, Carman, married Sarah Patrick age 21, spinster, residing in Richmond, father Edward Patrick, Farmer.

It is hard to pin down a death for either James or Sarah from the online records available.
And so, we move further down the line. Our next ancestor is James Edward Vincent, son of James and Sarah. :celebrate
