Generation No. 3

7. ANN6 READ (WILLIAM5, ROBERT4, COZENS3, WILLIAM2, JOHN1) was born 1797 in Bierton, Buckinghamshire, and died 1873 in Bierton, Buckinghamshire. She married GEORGE FINCHER 11 Oct 1820 in Bierton, Buckinghamshire. He was born 1799, and died in Australia.

Notes for ANN READ:
For many years I thought Ann had been widowed because her husband George disappeared from all the records I checked. I hunted everywhere for his burial but it was a few more years before a “new” cousin informed me that in fact Ann’s husband had deserted as a soldier, got caught, had a trial in London, and then was transported for life to Australia! (See his details for further news on this).

Seemingly Ann never saw her husband George again and I think that the child Ann that she had
c 1823 was in fact fathered by someone else!

Notes for GEORGE FINCHER:
For many years I had thought George had died and searched everywhere for his burial. It was many more years later that I was informed by a “new” cousin that he had in fact deserted as a soldier, was caught and taken for trial in London and was transported for life to Australia! And it turns out that although transported for life, after a very lengthy prison sentence in Australia, he was given his freedom and went on to buy land there and a niece and nephew from Buckinghamshire went out to join him.

It would seem apparent that he never saw his wife Ann again although a couple of family members did venture out to Australia.

Notes for JOHN READ:
John was a Straw Dealer in Aston Clinton, Buckinghamshire.

I was given the date of Nov 9th 1856 as the birth of John and Ann’s first child, which is also their wedding day!! Need to check this further!

When John and Ann married he was working as a Labourer and was unable to write.

In 1878 when their son Thomas William married Alice Greening, John was working as a Straw Dealer and was still a Straw Dealer at the time of the marriage of his son Frederick to Annie Sophia Ridgway in 1888.

Children of JOHN READ and ANN NORTH are:

Notes for THOMAS WILLIAM READ:
Thomas is the first child of his parents, John and Ann and I was given some information telling me that their first child was born on 9 November 1856, which was also their wedding day! I found a baptism for Thomas in 1858 but really need to send for his birth certificate to make sure when he was actually born!!

Although he is called Thomas, he mainly went by the name of William.

The 1871 Census shows 13 year old Thomas working as a Farmer’s Boy. At the time of his marriage in 1878 he was a Straw Dealer, like his father.

In the 1881 Census he is shown as a Carman (called William) and living at 16 Baldwin Terrace, Islington, London, Middlesex with his wife Alice and daughter.

My Aunt Evelyn informed me a long time ago that Thomas William Read died at a young age, possibly of pneumonia, after being shipwrecked! I am intrigued by this and am trying to find out how and when he was shipwrecked. She had also told me that he was previously responsible for losing the family business of straw dealing, so went about doing other things instead.

Edwin worked as a Tailor according to the Bierton Censuses. He is shown in the 1891 Census as having two children: Ethel Goodgame and Arthur.
