Barlow - Lightermen From Limehouse, Middlesex

Ann CRISP formerly ELTON nee BARLOW was the daughter of James BARLOW3. I have tagged him as '3' to distinguish him from his father and grandfather who are also named James.

James BARLOW3 was a Seaman in 1861 and lived in Durham. When the census was taken, he was not home as the record below shows.

James BARLOW3 married Ann DENNIS, April 25, 1854 in Sunderland, Durham. Their marriage certificate lists his father as James BARLOW2 and her father as James DENNIS. James3 was born in Limehouse according to the 1881 census; Shelia Piper has located his baptism in the Bishop's transcripts: 7th Feb 1835 at St Anns, Limehouse. I found him at home in the 1841 census:

Compare the above 1841 record with the following found in the 1851 census

Its clear that Sarah, Edward and Maria are the same persons as in the 1841 census. Notice the absence of James1; he had in fact died June 09, 1850, at age 50. The place of death on his certificate is 1 Regents Canal Dock, Limehouse. That Sarah is shown as 'M' for married is a mistake, it should be 'W' for widow. Between the civil records, the parish register of St Ann's Limehouse and the Bishop's transcripts the baptismal/birth records of the children are as follows:

James BARLOW1 was born 22nd July 1798 at Risbys Ropewalk. He was baptised 26th August at St. Annes, Limehouse. According to Watermen & Lightermen Apprentice Bindings, 1692-1949 he was apprenticed to Margaret BARLOW as a 'Lighterman' from 22nd Dec. 1814 to 8th October 1829. He married Sarah WILLIAMS 28th February 1830, St Dunstan, Stepney. Witnesses were James Green WARD and Elizabeth WARD.

Finnally, James BARLOW1 is the son of Margaret and George BARLOW as revealed in his birth record.
