Married 1850There is a record in the IGI indices of a marriage between John Elcock and Sarah Hoskins on 20th Jan 1850 at All Saints, Southampton, Hampshire. This seems fairly likely to be referring to this particular couple. Interestingly, the fathers of the couple are recorded in this entry - one Jacob Elcock and one Henry Hoskins.
Father: Jacob Elcock
Mother: Hannah Jacobs
Aged 50 at the time of the 1871 census. His occupation is entered as "Journeyman Baker", and his place of birth Hursley.
Aged 60 at the time of the 1881 census. Place of birth is recorded as Hursley.
There is an entry in the GRO indices for the death of a John Elcock in Jul/Aug/Sep 1882 in Romsey (volume 2c page 35). This is a possible match given that John does not seem to be present in the 1891 census, but does seem slightly less likely as the age at death appears to be 67. This may be a transcription error of course (were it actually 61, it would fit quite well).
Father: Henry Hoskins
Her age is entered as 45 at the time of the 1871 census, and her place of birth is entered as Hursley.
Aged 54 at the time of the 1881 census. Place of birth is recorded as Hursley.
A Sarah Elcock appears, living as a boarder, in the 1891 census. It is hard to ascertain whether this is the same one, however.
Aged 13 at the time of the 1871 census, her place of birth is entered as Romsey.
Spouse: Agnes Gertrude Keel
Children: William Frederick Elcock, Gladys Louise Elcock
Aged 10 at the time of the 1871 census, his place of birth is entered as Romsey.
Aged 20 at the time of the 1881 census.
There is a record of a christening of a Harry Elcock on 9th November 1860 in Romsey, with parents noted as John and Sarah Elcock. This is almost certainly him.
Spouse: Kate Martha Ransome
Children: Fanny Elcock, Alfred Elcock, John Elcock, Kate Elcock
Aged 8 at the time of the 1871 census, his place of birth is entered as Romsey.
Aged 18 at the time of the 1881 census. Here his occupation is entered as tailor.
Aged 28 at the time of the 1891 census. Here he appears to be living with his mother-in-law (Mary or perhaps May Ransom), and his marital status is entered as Widower. His occupation is entered as tailor.
Aged 38 at the time of the 1901 census, where he again appears to be living with his mother-in-law, (Mary. P Ransome).
William John Elcock
Spouse: Emma Cole
Children: Lilly B. L. Elcock, Daisy F. Elcock, Emily W. J. Elcock, William Reginald G. Elcock
Aged 5 at the time of the 1871 census, his place of birth is entered as Romsey.
Aged 15 at the time of the 1881 census, his occupation is entered as baker.
Aged 25 at the time of the 1891 census, at which time his occupation is entered again as baker, and he appears to have taken over running of the family bakery on Bell Street.
At the time of the 1901 census his age is entered as 32 (probably an error) and he is still living (and working presumably) at the family bakery at 26, Bell Street, Romsey. His occupation is entered as "bread baker", and his place of birth given as Romsey.
Spouse: William Edward Jewell
Children: William Edward Jewell, Mary Jewell, Archibald John Jewell, Percival Jewell
First appears in the 1871 census, aged 2, her place of birth entered as Romsey.
She appears in the 1881 census, aged 12, her named spelt with an n. Again her birthplace is recorded as Romsey. At this time she was living with her parents and three elder brothers.
Appears in the 1891 census living with husband William, incorrectly indexed as "Javell", aged 22 and with her birth place recorded as Romsey.
She appears in the 1901 census, aged 31, her named spelt Angelima (with an m). In the GRO index entry relating to (what appears to be) her marriage to William, her name is spelt Angelina (with an n). It isn't clear which is the correct spelling, perhaps she used both, or perhaps this is just down to transcribing errors.
Her birthplace is recorded in the 1901 census as "Romsey Hants".
