  • Notes 
    • From the birth certificate Ashley Howell DAVEY was born on 25th November 1847 and was the son of Mary Ann DAVEY. She was the informant and gave her residence as Ludham. There are no details of who the father might have been!

      Further digging uncovered the fact that Mary Ann DAVY married a John GREEN in 1852. Whether they adopted Ashley Howell remains to be seen. I have a theory that Ashley Howell DAVEY was the result of a 'romp in the hay' between Mary Ann DAVEY and her cousin Ashley HOWELL.

      From the 1851 Census (HO107 Piece 1808 Folio 86 Page 4) Ashby (Ashley), 3, was with his Grandfather William Davey, 52, Unmarried (actually a widower) at River Side, Ludham, Tunstead and Happing, Norfolk, England. With him were his aunt Mary Ann, 21, uncle Jacob, 18, aunt Allice, 16, uncle John, 15, uncle Isaac, 13, and aunt Susanna, 8. Also with him was a visitor (cousin) Pheba Nichols, 4.

      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 1196 Folio 100 Page 1) Ashley DAVEY, 13, was with his 'parents' John GREEN, 42, an Agricultural Labourer, and Maryann, 32, at a Private House, Porters Corner, Flegg, Norfolk, England. With him were his 'siblings' John GREEN, 10, Heber GREEN, 8, Elizabeth GREEN, 4, and Alice GREEN, 8 months.

      From the 1871 Census (RG10 Piece 1792 Folio 102 Page 9) Ashley DAV(E)Y, 23, a Shoemaker, was with his 'parents' John, 50, an Agricultural Labourer, and Mary Ann, 41, Agricultural Labourer Wife, at a residence 'By Porters Corner', Burgh St. Margaret, Norfolk, England. With him were his 'siblings' John GREEN, 19, Agricultural Labourer, Ellis GREEN, 10, Elen GREEN, 8 and Charlotte GREEN, 6. Also present was Sarah Ann GREEN, cousin, unmarried, age 19, a Servant - possibly the daughter of George GREEN and Hariot (RG9 Piece 1196 Folio 110 Page 21).

      From the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 1916 Folio 5 Page 4) Ashley H(owell), 33, a Shoemaker and Journeyman, was living with his wife Martha (Maria), 38, at Yarmouth Road, Caister, Norfolk, England. Ashley was deaf. With them was their son Edward A(shley Howell), 4.

      From the 1891 Census (RG12 Piece 1504 Folio 6 Page 5) Ashley H(owell), 42, a Shoemaker, was living with his wife Martha M(aria), 48, at Denes Road, Caister, Norfolk, England. With them was their son Edward A(shley) H(owell), 14, a Golf Club Caddy.

      From the 1901 Census (RG13 Piece 1816 Folio 31 Page 12) Ashley H(owell), 53, a Shoemaker, was with his wife Martha M(aria), 58, at Yarmouth Road, Caister, Norfolk, England.

      From the 1911 England Census for Caister on Sea, Norfolk (RG14PN11106 RG78PN602 RD220 SD1 ED2 SN63) Ashley Howell, 63, Boot and Shoemaker (Boots and Shoes) from Ludham, Norfolk, was with his wife Martha Maria, 68, from Caister, Norfolk, at Yarmouth Road, Caister on Sea, Norfolk, England.

      It seems they moved from Norfolk, England to Northampton ...
