Searching Fordham

Do you have any comments?  

Amelia Elizabeth Fordham was the daughter of Thomas Isaac Fordham. She was b. 1833 He was the unsuccessful son in an otherwise successful family. She married.William Callis Heath a \"scourer\" (in this context a laundryman) on 9 Oct 1852 at St. Geo Southwark. In 1861 a William Callis Heath, a laundryman married Mary Helen Knight in St. Pancras.He died on 14-12-1866, Mary Heath executrice. Was this bigamous? The marriage of Amelia Elizabeth Longley the d. of Thos. Isaac Fordham (in his presence) to J,G. Wiedhofft is slightly odd, as perhaps was he, an aging bachelor living with his mother, no will or admon on death. Moreover I cannot find her previous marriage to Longley. On 24.8.1879 newly widdowed Amelia married John Frederick Wiseman Bush laundryman bachelor of Conrad Street Hackney son of John Wiseman (sic) She was also of Conrad Street as were her parents at one time. On 8.4.1879 Amelia Elizabeth Bush wife of John Bush laundryman died of bronchitis at 49 Presburg Street, Hackney

Do you have any comments?  

I may be related to Mary Elizabeth, although the farthest I have been able to trace back thus far is th Conrad Ruppersberg (born in Kesel Germany in 1830). His father was Andrew, given as an 'official' in the German Army. There were a number of the Ruppersberg (also often spelt Ruppersbery later) families in the east of London at that time, and Andrew and Mary may have been related.

My Gt G'mother, Elizabeth Woolf ?? m. James Peck at Holy Trinity in 1869. There was a Baker connection but I would have to look it up. We are not of a prosperous background, but many of your notes were familiar territory.
