Descendants of John Raymond
John Raymond, son of John Raymond (1783-1850) and Elizabeth Chapman (1790-1829), christened 16 Jul 1817 1 at Christ Church, Southwark, Surrey, England; died aged 55 years on 14 Nov 1872 10 registered Wandsworth, Surrey. He married ca. 1843 Sarah (surname unknown), born 1823 2 Marylebone, Middlesex.
1. John Raymond, b. ca. 1843, St. Clements, Middlesex, England 5, likely died Mar. Qtr. 1916 aged 72 reg. Swansea. He married in 3 Sep 1881 at St. Mary, Battersea, Sarah Mary Taylor, a widow, b. ca. 1830 Ambleside, Westmoreland, England who likely died aged 83 in Sep. Qtr. 1912 reg, Croydon.
John, likewise to his father, was a barrister-at-law. He was admitted to membership of the Middle Temple on 15 Apr 1867 12. His name appeared on a list dated 26 Jan 1870 of "Calls to the Bar" from the Middle Temple, published in The Times of 27 Jan. 1870, the same date given in the Middle Temple's published admissions register. Before his 30th birthday, likewise to his barrister-at-law father, he had authored a legal reference book. His was titled - On building contracts: a legal handbook for architects, builders, and building-owners. It was co-authored with Edward Jenkins (1838-1910) and first published in London in 1873. The 1889 4th edition of 285 pages was titled The Architect’s Legal Handbook 6.
2. Unknown daughter, b. likely 1844 to 1846. Existance presumed because the 1854 newspaper death notice for daughter Josephine, who was born Aug 1851, stated she was the "second daughter" implying there had been a first. She was not listed in her parents household at either the 1851, 1861, or 1871 census.
3. Arthur Raymond, b. ca. 1848 8 Barnes, Surrey.
He was listed in his parents household at the 1851 census as aged 3 years and born in Barnes in Surrey but was not listed in the household at the 1861 census when he would have been aged 13. However an Arthur Raymond aged 13 was listed at that census as one of 10 pupils at a school at 16 Manor Street, Bridlington in Yorkshire located near the coast about 290 kilometers north of London. In 1861 his one year younger brother Alfred was at St. Nicholas' College about 80 kilometers south of London, a school also later attended by his younger brother Henry, so it would seem quite odd that Arthur was at a different and far distant school unless perhaps he was handicapped and it was a special school? However it cannot be entirely discounted he was John and Sarah's son Arthur because of the co-incidence that the Bridlington school Arthur was born in Barnes the 1851 census had it that their son Arthur was born! No birth, death or marriage record has been been positively identified in the BDM indexes so his history is unknown. If born between March 1847 and Mar 1848 he may have been the Arthur Raymond aged 20 whose death was registered at Church Stretton in the County of Shropshire in Dec. Qtr. 1867 (V.6a, p. 373). The will of his father John whodied in 1872 has not been sighted but if he was not mentioned in it that might suggest Arthur had died before it was executed. When better indexes become available in 2011 the matter will likely be clarified.
4. Alfred Raymond, b. ca. 1849 8 Barnes, Surrey. He married in Dec Qtr. 1876 reg. Camberwell, Constance Raymond, b. Rotherhithe Dec. Qtr. 1841, his second cousin and a daughter of Mead Terry Raymond and Sarah Chessum.
5. Oke Edye Raymond, b. June Qtr. 1850 10, Dulwich, Surrey, reg. Camberwell (June. Qtr. 1850, Vol. 4, p. 61, reg. Camberwell); d. aged 24 years, Dec. Qtr. 1874 (vol. 3a, p. 32) reg. Brentford, Middlesex. He was listed in his father's household at the 1851, 1861 and 1871 census. The unusual given names were how both his birth and death were registered. They appeared variously rendered in his 1851 to 1871 census records.
6. Josephine Flora Raymond, b. Aug 1851 9 reg. Camberwell, Surrey, England; d. 16 Oct 1854 9 Clapham, Surrey, aged 3 yrs and two months.
7. Charlotte Frances Raymond, b. Mar. Qtr. 1853 10 Clapham, Surrey (Mar. Qtr. 1853, Vol. 1d, p. 376 reg. Wandsworth). Listed in the 1881 census residing with her mother at Pownall Gardens 6 in Isleworth, Middlesex. Listed in 1891 census indexes aged 38 residing with her mother Sarah and sister Ethel in the Brentford district of of Middlesex. No marriage noted in the BDM indexes.
8. William G. Raymond, b. Jun. Qtr. 1855 10 (Jun. Qtr. 1855, Vol. 1d, p. 366 reg. Wandsworth). Listed in his father's household in 1861 but not at the 1871 census - perhaps at the latter was away at boarding school.
9. Henry Sherer Raymond, b. Mar. Qtr. 1857 10, Surrey, England (Mar. Qtr. 1857, Vol. 1d p. 411, reg. Wandsworth, Surrey); d. 3 Oct. 1909, aged 52, Boscombe, London (Dec. Qtr. 1909, Vol. 2b, p. 409 reg Christchurch, Hampshire).
10. Montague Raymond, b. Jun. Qtr. 1860 10, Clapham, Surrey, England (Jun. Qtr. 1860, Vol. 1d, p. 378). A Montague Raymond died March Qtr. 1917 aged 58, reg. West Ham (vol. 4a, p. 85). Possibly the Montague J. Raymond who married in 1912 (Jun. Qtr. 1912, reg. Hadgood, Wimborne, Vol. 5a, p. 606).
11. Malcolm Raymond, b. Dec. Qtr. 1861 10, Clapham, Surrey, England (Dec. Qtr. 1861, Vol. 1d, p. _16, reg. Wandsworth). He was listed n his father's household in the 1871 census aged 9 . He died, aged 16, in 1878 in London, England (Dec. Qtr. 1878, Vol. 3a, p. 33 reg. Brentford).

At the 1881 census she was residing with her mother at Pownall Gardens 6 in Isleworth, Middlesex, and in the 1891 census indexes when aged 27 was residing with her mother Sarah and sister Charlotte Frances in the Brentford district.

13. Alfred Raymond, born ca. 1877.

14 That in the requisite timeframe Walter Oke Edye (-1864) of the Middle Temple taught pupils studying for the Bar,is established by the following quote from the obituary in the March 1866 issue of Gentleman's Magazine for the 1865 death at St. Kilda, Melbourne, Australia of a former NSW Supreme Court Judge Hon. E. Wise - "he studied for the Bar, as a pupil to W. Oke Edye, esq. of the Temple. He was called to Bar at the Middle Temple in 1844".
