The earliest definite Durham ancestor we can find is WILLIAM I, born about the 1750’s?, although details are beginning to emerge about his possible family, who married twice in the Watford, Herts area, and who had at least six sons, baptized in Sarratt ► PHOTOS – there is very little online about the Durhams in the Watford area, and there don’t appear to be any Durhams buried in the Sarratt graveyard (although they might not have been able to afford gravestones, or the latter have disappeared), so we don’t know whether they originally came from Hertfordshire, or from somewhere completely different – the fact that a grandson was called Alexander hints at a Scottish descent, but on the other hand, no other Scottish names come up in the family, so perhaps he was called Alexander for some other reason.  Durham is not an uncommon surname – presumably they once came from county Durham. Only a handful of mentions have been found of Sarratt or Watford in the records so far (see ► DURHAM STRAYS), leading us to believe that that was not the Durhams’ area of origin.

Of the six sons, provided our records are correct, one stayed in Rickmansworth, Herts, and two turn up in Lambeth, Surrey, now in Greater London ► DURHAMS IN LAMBETH - perhaps the family originally came from London, and they just moved back. We have little record of these two families, although one of the Lambeth families MAY have descent still living in the Tottenham, Middlesex area.

Another son, JACOB I, the author’s ancestor, seems to have moved to Lambeth as well, and eventually to other parts of London, and became a pub keeper (we don’t know whether he actually owned the pubs, or just managed them – certainly he had land dealings in Lee, Kent in 1832 and 1852) – perhaps he had relatives there who helped him set up in business.

Although Jacob I was married twice in Westminster, the family must have gradually moved towards what is now southeast London: he had two (surviving?) sons, Alexander William James and Charles Jacob.

ALEXANDER WILLIAM JAMES’ family left the pub business and the London area, and have since spread to Scotland and the Isle of Wight, and include two clergymen and two doctors.

Two of Alexander William James Durham's descendants inherited some property in Roan Street, Greenwich (which appears in William Jacob Smith's family documents in the 1860's, although no house number or pub is mentioned), as well as other property in the area, and it seems that they inherited this property through the Durham line, so it would appear that property possibly originally owned by Jacob Durham or his son Alexander William James Durham, fruit of their pub business, still remains with members of the family today - this is the opposite of what happened to any estate Jacob's other son, Charles Jacob Durham, MAY have owned, as he possibly died in debt, probate being granted to a firm of brewers.

CHARLES JACOB, the author’s ancestor, also had land dealings in Lee, Kent in 1867, together with his brother-in-law, William Steward, and had seventeen children in southeast London, at least two of whom went into the pub business, whilst some of the daughters made good marriages. The pub business seems however to have died out with this generation – it is not known what happened to it. One son went to South Africa, and his  two sons founded families in the Gravesend, Kent and Poole, Dorset areas, part of the latter moving to Nottinghamshire – another son moved to east London, and his family are still going strong in Essex, but it is not known what became of the descendants of the majority of his children.

 

Until now we do not know whether anyone emigrated (except for the son who went to South Africa), but it MAY turn out that someone did, as happened in all the families associated with the Durhams

At least four of Charles Jacob’s descendants are short in stature, so perhaps this is hereditary in the Durham family.

· as John Durham II, Elizabeth Durham I, Mary Durham I, and William Durham I were all witnesses at each other’s marriages, they were possibly siblings

· however, strangely, of the "siblings", Mary could write her name, Elizabeth, John and William could not write their names in the marriage records

· as Elizabeth and Mary got married in Watford, and the John and William are described in their marriage records as “of the parish of Watford”, there is a fair chance that Watford is their home town

· John I MAY have been their father, but no baptism records have been found for the four, other than that of an Elizabeth

● the address is correct, and the death certificate says she is the widow of a gardener, which William II was [found dead, from natural causes]

i

● there is some doubt as to William’s 2 marriages – it is certain that he married Isabella Leach 1817 in Newington, Surrey, but he is shown as a widower, so he must have been married before - a William Durham married a Mary Jones 1812 in Lambeth, Surrey – as this is the right area, the author assumed that this was his 1st marriage – but another Durham correspondent has pointed out that the signatures in the 2 marriages are different – a further Durham correspondent, who has studied the question of signatures in marriage records before, says: “I do agree that the signatures look different. The 'W's at the beginning are written very differently, one of the 'l's in William is looped, the other not, and the 'D's of Durham look different, but if you look closely I think the 'D's are written the same way with the down stroke first and a similar decoration at the end, much of the rest looks as though the letters, even if not identical, are formed in the same way. I don't think  the looped 'l' is particularly significant, but it is harder to explain the different 'W's I would not think that his signature would have changed that much in 5 years. My first reaction was that they were not the same. My 2nd reaction was 'well, maybe!’ I'm not sure that my signature is identical everytime I write it.”

NOTES ON WILLIAM DURHAM V:

● the address in the burial record was White Horse Street, where Jacob William was living in the 1851 census

● this address was also given in Sarah III, Isabella II, Alice II and John Edward's baptism records

● also in John Edward and Elizabeth III's burial records

● no birth or baptism record can be found in 1840

● and the 1838 birth and baptism records would make him 11 years old at the time of death

● it might be that the age given in is burial record was incorrect

● in the baptism record the parents are given as William and Sarah, but there were no William and Sarah Durham in this family who it MAY have been

● the address given in the baptism record, Asylum Place, is where Jacob William's father was living in the 1841 and 1851 census, and where Jacob William himself was living in the 1861 census

● Jacob William cannot be found in the 1841 census, so there is no way of knowing where the family was living in that period

● the father's occupation is given as gardener, which Jacob William and his father were

● it is therefore only presumed that he was Jacob William's son, and not definite

NOTES ON THOMAS DURHAM:

● the address in the burial record was also White Horse Street

● no baptism record can be found, but if he was only a few months old when he died, perhaps he died before he could be baptized

● it is therefore only presumed that he was Jacob William's son, and not definite

● the author previously considered Isabella’s husband’s name to be George Jacob Field (I), but in his baptism record, marriage certificate, death record, and 1871 and 1881 censuses, the name is always plain George Field; only in his children’s baptism record is he referred to as George Jacob Field. But there his son is referred to as plain George Field – so this must be an error made by the Vicar who reversed the names of father and son

● nothing more is known about him

● Henry Jacob was in the army 1868-82, being stationed in Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Africa, Ireland and Malta

● his medical record shows that during this time he contracted various diseases – might they have led to the fact that not many of his children survived childhood, whilst Henry James seems to have had mental problems?

● the first 3 children are also listed in the General Register Office Regimental Birth Indices, 75th Regiment

● no death record can be found in England & Wales for a Henry Jacob Durham, only for various plain Henry Durhams

● as he cannot be found in the 1911 census, the Author presumes that he died before - the only death record in the London area before 1911 is for a plain Henry Durham, age 53 (so born about 1853), Q4 1906, London City, Middx R/D, but there is no indication whatsoever that is Henry Jacob’s death

● the baptism record is for a William Simpson, son of Thomas and Alice, residence Mead Row, Lambeth, Surrey, father’s profession coach painter

● the baptism records for Thomas and Alice’s children George Thomas and Charlotte I also show their father’s profession as coach painter

● in the 1841 census, taken 6 JUN 1841, Thomas was shown as a “painter j(ourneyman?)”, address 77 Tower Street, Southwark, Surrey, which is where William was presumably born

● so Thomas and Alice must have moved (back) to Lambeth between 6 JUN 1841 and 1 AUG 1841, or perhaps St Mary, Lambeth was their “family parish”, and they preferred to have William baptized there

Eliza Jane’s granddaughter comments:

● Matthew Brice and John Henry were not the sons of Henry William Akers [as has been suggested in some Ancestry.com family trees, and especially as he possibly died several years before they were born]

● both of their birth certificates have no father's name on them

● in the 1891 census Eliza Jane is already a widow with Arthur John and Edith as her only children

● in the 1901 census she also has Matthew Brice aged 8 and John Henry aged 6 and a lodger named William Sainsbury, a widower, aged 44 - Eliza is aged 42 at this time

● now whilst this might not be the case, I have a feeling that he is the father of Matthew Brice and John Henry, so this is the reason they MAY not have been baptized

● in John Henry's army records there is his Casualty Form - Active Service from when he was wounded in France in 1915, he was 21 then, which gives his next-of-kin as (Father) William Sainsbury of Castelmain Road, Peckham

● in his attestation papers when he joined up in 1914 aged 19 he has his next-of-kin as (Father) William Henry Akers of Commercial Road, Peckham - he MAY have thought this was so at the time - this was then crossed out and his married sister Edith Pilcher of Albany Road, Camberwell, was named next-of kin later on as she had brought them all up after the death of Eliza Jane, and he spent his leave there - Matthew Brice also had her down as his next-of-kin

● both sons Arthur John and Matthew Brice were killed in France in 1915

● nothing more is known about Alfred Akers

● the above death record is the only likely one that can be found for or Henry William Akers

● nothing more is known about him

● Henry James was listed twice in the 1939 Register, once at home with Rebecca, with his correct date of birth, both “married”, and once at a lunatic asylum

● in the latter, his date of birth was shown as plain “1877”, but if this had been written by the medical staff, it was possibly only an approximation, “married”

● so why were they both shown as “married”, when they did not actually marry until 1945, when they were both in their 60’s – 70’s?

● and Rebecca was listed with her correct date of birth, but  as “Rebecca G. (= Grace?) Durham”, although her 1st husband had died in 1921

● so it seems as though there might have been some impediment for their not marrying until 1945

● but no previous marriage can be found for Henry James

● in the electoral registers for 1956-8 he was living at Dorking General Hospital, and in 1960 at St Anne’s Home for the Aged, Redhill, where he died in that same year

● so if he was a patient in a lunatic asylum in 1939, and spent  the last few years of his life as a long time patient, he must have had serious medical and/or mental problems

● in his marriage  certificate, Henry James gave his age as 68 (so born about 1877), which is more or less correct, his profession as decorator (jobbing) – in the 1939 Register  he was listed as a builder’s labourer, but his father as plain Henry Durham (deceased), mechanical engineer

● however, as the Henry James Durham born 29 OCT 1878 was indeed living with Rebecca in the 1939 Register, there can be no doubt that this is the correct maggiage

● he was the last traced male Durham in the Senior Line

 

 

● Rebecca married (1) Q1 1898, Hackney, Middx R/D, Frederick GraceBMD (died Q2 1921, Brentford, Middx R/DBMD), and had 1 daughterCENSUS, BMD

● nothing more is known about her

 

 

CHILDREN?

● assuming Henry James and Rebecca got together after her 1st husband’s death in 1921, when she was 50, it is likely that they did not have any

before 1911CENSUS

● these Simpson children, mother's maiden name Hughes, were born in West Derby, Lancs R/D before the 1911 census (Elizabeth Jane would have been about 40 in 1904):

1. Catherine Simpson, Q3 1908

2. Margaret Simpson, Q1 1908

3. Thomas Henry Simpson, Q3 1910 (unlikely, as there was already a son called Thomas Henry)

so it is impossible to calculate which, if any, were Thomas William and Elizabeth Jane’s child
