H1. ANN FERRY born TREVETT

Ann Trevett was born about 1818–9, in Long Bredy, Dorset. She was baptised there on the 26th December 1819.1

In 1841 she was one of two female servants at Cogden House, Burton Bradstock, in the household of William and Richard Roberts, farmers.2

Ann Travitt her markOn the 29th December 1845 she married [G2] Richard Ferry, at Burton Bradstock parish church; she marked her name.3

Their children were: [G1] Alice Jane (1846–1918), John (1849–1943), Amelia (1852–1854), Harry (1855–1927), Annie (1857–1934), and Catherine (1860–1914). Alice Jane was born in Burton Bradstock, the others in Southampton.4

Shortly after 1846 the family moved to Southampton. John, Amelia and Harry were born at 4 St Mary Street, Southampton. In 1851 she was working as a laundress, and living with her family at 4 St Mary’s, Southampton. After her husband became a railway porter in 1855 the household may have been better off, for subsequent censuses list no occupation for Ann. Her daughter Annie was born at 23 Amoy Street, and her youngest child Catherine at 12 Amoy Street, where Ann is to be found with her family in the 1861 census. The 1871 finds her with her family at 15 Liverpool Street, Southampton.5

By the time of the 1871 census, however, she was probably too ill to work. She died on the 5th August 1871, at 15 Liverpool Street, Bevois Town, Southampton, after a year's cerebral disease.6

Ann Trevett was the second child, and eldest daughter, of [H2] John and [H7] Mary Trevett.7

H2. JOHN TREVETT

John Trevett was born in 1789, being baptised on the 17th May that year at Long Bredy.1

signature of John TrevettJohn Trevett married [H7] Mary Buller on the 26th April 1815 at Long Bredy parish church, after banns. He was living in Long Bredy at the time, and able to sign his name. Their children, all baptised in Long Bredy, were: Edward (1816–1884), [H1] Ann (1819–1871), Sarah (1823–1903), and John (1827–1909).2

He worked as a labourer, living in Long Bredy throughout the period when his children were being born (1816–1827).3 However, it seems likely that he is one and the same as the John Trevett ordered by Litton Cheney on 12 May 1821 to pay 1s. 6d. weekly maintenance for the maintenance of a female bastard child he had had with Hannah Kingsden (the girl having been baptised there as Mary Anne Trevett Kingsden on 15 April).3A

By 1841 he was a shepherd, living with his wife and three children at Litton Cheney, Dorset. In April 1843 he was removed from Over Compton to Litton Cheney.4

A labourer, he died of apoplexy at Milborne Port, Somerset, on 5 February 1845.5

John Trevett was the youngest child of [H3] Edward and [H14] Mary Trevett.6
