CASTLE / HALL
March 2017 - I received an email from Robyn Hukin regarding the above family name.
After 30 years of hunting this particular individual I’ve
finally cracked his mystery and would like to share the solution with others, so
thought your index is the best place to do this.
It is however a little complicated so may cause a headache or two for you… my apologies…. Unfortunately I have those sorts of troublesome ancestors!
•Thomas Castle Hall was born illegitimate to Mary Hall in Weedon Bec (Bp 30 May 1787). Presumably his was Benjamin Castle, who married Mary Hall the following year.
•Thomas Castle Hall married Sarah SEARS in Waltham Holy Cross in Essex on 29 Apr 1814.
•They had a son Benjamin Castle Hall bp in Waltham Holy Cross in Essex on 16 Aug 1817
•At some point this lot lose the name HALL and permanently become CASTLE
•Family returned to Northamptonshire to produce at least 2 kids in Weedon before heading off to Hammersmith.
•Thomas Castle (previously Thomas Castle Hall above) died in Brook Green Place, Hammersmith on 29 Sept 1846, previous occupation a labourer, but at death a carpenter
•The three kids born in Weedon were:
◦Thomas c 1819 (haven’t found this one so he may have been bp elsewhere) – married May Ann Sophia THOMA in Hammersmith 18 Oct 1849 and died 1897 in Fulham
◦Ann Castle (bp as Castell in Weedon Bec in 1821) married William Henry FRANCIS on 9 Jun 1845 in Hammersmith. She died March Q 1866 in Kensington.
◦James Castle bp Weedon Bec 26 Oct 1823. Don’t know where he died but he did move with the family down to Hammersmith for the 1841 census.
Thank you for the wonderful work you are doing!
