1840 Joseph LANKSHEAR marriage to Sarah Fowler - Newington

1809 Joseph Lankshear son of John Lankshear and  Margaret Pearson

This is from gedcom not confirmed yet as at Nov 2003 - finally Jan 2006
Marriages Mar 1840 Newington  4 299   
FOWLER  Sarah 
LAN____AD  Joseph

You can understand why the transcription mess


But also see 1839 Joseph Lankshear marriage Hannah Higham in Kensington but I think this is more likely to be 1st marriage for  1848 Joseph Lankshear marriage Jane Osborn -   Joseph son of William and Elizabeth (Parrott)

Following kindly found by a good friend Judy Lester:

Holy Trinity Newington MARRIAGE 30 Mar 1840
Joseph Lankshear, full, BACHELOR, Cooper, Butlers Buildings. F - John Lankshear, Cooper
Sarah Fowler, full, spinster, 2 Mermaid Court. F - Thomas Fowler, Wheelwright.
Banns Both signed Witnesses: Charles Fowler (brother), Emma Smith [both signed]
Note: Joseph is a bachelor -

I wonder who Emma Smith is? Well Marriage Charles William Fowler to Emma Smith 31 Aug 1851 St Mary, Lambeth MiddlesexLambeth Thomas Fowler Wheelwright Samuel Smith Bottle maker


Charles is shown age 15 a wheelwright in 1841 census of  FOWLER and Joseph Lankshear


1851 Census - Joseph and Sarah Lankshear and family in Southwark

Mermaid Court Southwark.

85 (perhaps55) Long Lane, 
Bermondsey  Piece 325

1861 Census - Joseph and Sarah Lankshear and family in Bermondsey

1809 Joseph Lankshear son of John Lankshear and  Margaret Pearson


1858 Lankshear in Court Case which could be Joseph

Jos'h (Joseph)  LANKSHEAR - head - marr - 41  1809- Cooper - in 1891 
     Place of birth for Joseph is Mark Lane in the City. but in 1861 he had Southwark, St Saviour and Sarah was Mark Lane

 1841 Index There is a Joseph LANKSHEAD age 30 Wine Cooper, born outside Surrey (Mermaid Court, St George Southwark). So right sort of area, but he doesn't appear to have a wife with him. - Then we saw that Joseph was with a family named Fowler and Sarah was shown aged 2- with them. 


Jos'h (Joseph)  LANKSHEAR - head - marr - 51  1809- Dealer - Southwark, St Saviour
    (could read age as 57 ie 1804 but I think it is the top stroke of 5 flowing into the 1 )
    (original gedcom says born 1809 and parents marriage was 1808)

Sarah LANKSHEAR - wife - 41 1819 - Mdx, Mark Lane (?)
        Mark Lane Middlesex. Looking at today's map this is off  Fenchurch Street but she was clearly baptised in Southwark
