Lucy Snelson1

F, #5641, Deceased, b. about December 1874, d. January 1880
  • Consanguinity: Great-aunt of Adrian John ("John") Snelson

Parents

Main Events

  • Biography:

    I did not become aware of the existence of my grand aunt Lucy until May 1992 - a long way into this research. I had never heard mention of a Lucy and had not even any record of any Lucy Snelson in the county of Cheshire in the C19. How sad; it seems great grandfather Samuel Snelson and his wife Mary Benyon lost young Samuel Benyon and Lucy within a few days; Samuel died on 6th January 1880 aged only fifteen months and sister Lucy was only five years old.

    Then of course Mary lost her own life within a few days of giving birth to my grandfather Harold Alfred Benyon Snelson.
  • Birth: Lucy Snelson was born about December 1874 in Tranmere.
  • Residence: She resided in Handbridge in 1880.
  • Death: She died in January 1880 in Chester Lucy and her brother Samuel Benyon Snelson both died at around the same time, in the March quarter 1880; he was aged 1 and she was aged 5.
  • Burial: Lucy's remains were buried on 14 January 1880 in Chester General Cemetery, Overleigh, Description: Daughter of Samuel & Mary Snelson
    Age: 5 y
    Address: Handbridge
    Parish: St Mary
    Date of Burial: 14/01/1880
    Grave Number: G247
    Page Number: 21
    Consecrated: True
    Cemetery Register: DCE/1/3
    Running Number: 3757.2
  • Witness: She witnessed the marriage of Alfred Snelson and Catherine Fanny HAMM on 16 June 1886 in East Haddon, Brixforth, Northamptonshire, This is a real mystery. If she died in 1880, then how can she turn up in 1886 in Northamptonshire as a witness to this wedding? I have not been able to solve this puzzle.
