I am looking for information about Letitia Beamsley nee Kennard who is my 3rd great grandmother. I am not certain of where she was born, however on the 1841 census she is recorded as "Letitia KENNERD" & is living with a Henry Daws, William Bates, William Merret, & John Merret. Now there is a lot of speculation/uncertainty about this woman's parents/maiden name - it includes Kennerd/Kennard/Hennerd,& Cannon.
Letitia m. James BEAMSLEY(of Stokenchurch, Oxfordshire. Son of William Beamsley, farmer, & Mary Beamsley nee Bates) at Stokenchurch. They married 20 Oct 1841 (shortly after the 1841 census).
James was the youngest of his siblings & probably did not inherit his father's farm - so he & Letitia immigrated to Nelson NZ via the Barque Mary (depart: 2 Nov 1848, arrived: 24 Feb 1849).
Letitia died in NZ Oct 1853 age ~32, of cancer. Her death certificate does not name her parents. The Informant: George Bonnington. She died in Waimea, Nelson, NZ & I think she has an unmarked grave.
If anyone can please help me with any information about Letitia - in particular her birth/marriage vitals & parents names, I would be extremely grateful. Please could you contact me?
UPDATE: I have since found out that her father's name is William Kennard, through the marriage record. I am still looking for further details on her father & mother.
