Biography

Annie Snelson

F, #1672, Deceased, b. about 1864
  • Consanguinity: 1st cousin 2 times removed of Adrian John ("John") Snelson

Parents

Family

Family: Ernest Chadburn (b. 1852)

Main Events

  • Name: Annie Snelson was also known as Ann Chadburn.
  • Christening: Annie was christened on 28 February 1864 in St. Mary's, Chester.
  • Biography: I wonder who her father was ? The BT's say on Page 135 St Mary's Baptisms that her mother Margaret was a spinster. We do not know who the father may be.

    She is shown in the 1871 Census as daughter of Margaret, but the husband of Margaret Coventry, Samuel, died in 1860. In addition, Margaret was must have been 50 years old when Ann was born and she was a widow not a spinster,

    So, I am going to make a guess here ... I think this Margaret, mother of Annie born 1864 must be Margaret Coventry and Samuel Snelson's daughter Margaret Snelson [14] born in 1840, so 24 years old when Annie was born and not married until later.1
  • Birth: She was born about 1864.
  • Marriage: Annie Snelson and Ernest Chadburn were married about December 1895 in St. Michael, Chester.2

Census

Census 1871Annie Snelson Id #1,672 (daughter) was at home on Census night 2 April 1871 at 57 Handbridge, St. John, Chester; However I think this is unlikely. I think she is the the grand daughter of Margaret Coventry and is actually the daughter of Margaret Smelson who was unmarried at the time. The Margaret Snelson in the BTs at Annie's birth says her mother Margaret is a spinster.

Also in the household that night were Margaret Coventry (Household Head), Samuel Snelson (son), and Alfred Snelson (son)

Census 1881Annie Snelson Id #1,672 (grand daughter) was at home on Census night 4 April 1881 at 53 Handbridge, Chester, Cheshire; The records say that Jane was Head of the Household, but absent on Census night. I think that this might refer to Jane Roscow [19942] who married Hannah's brother Thomas Snelson, the plumber - who lived in Bolton. On the other hand, this Jane may be the daughter of Thomas Snelson and Jane Crawford.

On the surface that is - I think the Census recorder has made a mistake here - I think that this William Roberts is married to Hannah Snelson, the daughter of Samuel Snelson & Margaret Coventry. That Jane died in 1880 - which might explain why she was absent and also she lived in Bolton. It's a mystery for the moment.

I think in 1881, William Roberts is identified as the Son-in-Law of Jane - who is absent but perhaps the real Head of the Hosehold or absent landlord. William's wife is Hannah and their 2 children Mary H Roberts and Sarah Roberts are at home that night. Also home is Annie Snelson shown as a daughter aged 17 - but she must be the daughter of Margaret Snelson [14], Hannah's sister methinks.

Jane is Annie's aunt - well because Jane Roscow is married to Annie's mother's brother.

Also in the household that night were Jane Roscow (Principal) and Hannah Snelson (daughter)

For search purposes, their Id numbers are respectively as follows :- Id #19,942 and 1,558
