Biography

Shropshire flag
Mary (Williams) Dovey was born in Shropshire, England.

Mary was born in Alveley, Shropshire in 1837. Daughter of Richard Yates and Hannah Williams. Hannah was born out of wedlock, she was baptised on the 19th of November 1837, in Alveley, Shropshire. Her mother gave Hannah the middle name of Yates which was her her fathers surname. Her mother Hannah married Richard Yates in 1838 and Hannah then used the surname Yates. She was probably unaware that she was born out of wedlock. [1]

England Marriages, 1538–1973
Name: Sampson Tomlinson
Spouse's Name: Mary Ann William Yeates
Event Date: 13 Dec 1857
Event Place: Kidderminster,Worcester,England

Children of Mary Yates and Sampson Tomlinson

Together they had three children

  1. Richard [2]
  2. Ada [3] [4]
  3. Lavinia [4]

From the births of the children it would indicate that Sampson passed away sometime between 1866 and 1870. However I think it's more likely that Sampson passed away in 1859 and the two girls were not Sampsons Children.[5]

Second Marriage

Mary married her second husband Thomas Dovey in 1870 at Alveley, Shropshire. [6]

Children of Mary Yates and Thomas Dovey

Together they had six children

  1. Hannah [7]
  2. Constance [8]
  3. Walter [9]
  4. Laura [10]
  5. Jessie [11]
  6. Thomas [12]

Mary's husband Thomas passed away in 1906 at Alveley, Shropshire. [13]

Notes

  1. Could not find a death record in the time frame for Sampson Tomlinson in any county in the UK, have searched Samson also. There is however a death record in 1859 for a Sampson Tomlinson in the Bridgnorth district. [14] There is no age at death given so unable to verify without purchasing Death Cert and we know so little about Sampson it's possible we still may not be able to verify if it is his death record. However if it is his death record that would mean the two girls Ada and Lavinia Tomlinson were illegitimate as they were born after this Sampson Tomlinsons death. I do suspect this may be the case as Mary appears on the 1861 census in her married name of Tomlinson, with what appears to be a W as her marital staus, indicating Widowed. The writing is very faded so is difficult to make out. Mary is living at her parents home with her young son Richard Tomlinson and no sign of Sampson Tomlinson. [15]The two girls Ada and Lavinia are born after this date in 1865 and 1866 respectivley so that would make them illegitimate, furthermore Ada's baptism record only mantions her mother Mary Ann. [3]
  2. Could not find death Record for Mary, she could have possibly married for a third time. There is a marriage record for a Mary A Dovey in Bridgnorth district in 1911, possible spouses are William Price or Henry Smith. [16]
