Parents of Mary HULME nee WOOD (1788-1875)
Mary HULME, nee WOOD, is my maternal 4th great grandmother.
She married Daniel HULME at St Pancras Old Church on the 1st of January 1810.
Mary died at Fulham on the 13th of March 1875, age 87 years which puts her birth year around 1788.
In all the census from 1841 to 1871 Mary HULME was a Grocer at 65 High Street, Fulham.
The 1841 census for Fulham stated she was not born in the county.
The 1851 census stated she was born in Fulham
The 1861 census stated she was born in Hertfordshire.
The 1871 census stated she was born in Puckeridge, Hertfordshire.
In the 1861 census living in the same household is her sister, a widow age 65 by the name of Matha (sic) Mary MEAD. She was born at Leatherhead, Surrey. As yet I haven’t found a WOOD/MEAD marriage but the Leatherhead, St. Mary and St. Nicholas Surrey births and baptisms has a record for Martha WOOD born March 18 and baptised April 5, 1795.
Her parents were William WOOD and Mary RADLEY.
Even though Leatherhead is about 20 miles South-West of London and Puckeridge about 30 miles North, I searched around Puckeridge, Hertfordshire for a baptism for Mary WOOD about 1788 and found her listed with parents William and Mary at Standon which is a village adjoining Puckeridge. No mother’s maiden name though.
I then looked for a marriage for William WOOD and Mary RADLEY and found it registered also at Standon in 1788.
I am quietly confident that I have finally found my 5th great grandparents are William WOOD and Mary RADLEY, the parents of Mary HULME nee WOOD!
Also in the Leatherhead, St. Mary and St. Nicholas Surrey births and baptisms with parents William WOOD and Mary RADLEY were Ann born 13th Feb 1798, baptised 4th March 1798 and Charlotte born 3rd March 1801, baptised 29 March 1801.
