DRINKWATERs of Warwickshire, Eng, 1850's

0 votes

My grandfather (Charles Frederick JAMESON/JAMESION) stated on his marriage certificate (1910, Brisbane, Australia) that his mother was MARY ANN DRINKWATER and his father was CHARLES JAMESON.

My grandfather was born in Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, 19th May, 1886 or 1887.  I have had a professional genealogist look for the marriage of Mary Ann DRINKWATER and Charles JAMESON, and also for the birth of my grandfather, but with no luck.

I know when he left England for Australia, he was part of what we would now call a "melded family", so I'm wondering if DRINKWATER was his mother's birth name, but she was a widow (with another unknown surname) when she married Charles JAMESON, presumably sometime prior to 1886.

I am at my wits end with my dear grandfather's line.  Does anyone know of a DRINKWATER/JAMESON (or any variant spelling of that name) connection, in or around Birmingham, Warwickshire, in the mid-1800's?  Any clue would be very gratefully received.

Hi Sue!

I was unable to decifer your grandfather's first name. But there is a Frederick Albert listed in the Sep qtr 1886 in Birmingham. Can't tell if that is the right one as don't now first natme. Critical error on your part. Please alway provide all information that you have when you post a query. :.)

ooops, so sorry Joyce. blush  And thanks for all the time you put in.  I have ammended my question, to include my grandfather's name, Charles Frederick Jameson.  (The variant spelling is because, when he came to Australia, he added an "i"  to JAMESON, but put it in the "wrong" place.)
