Hmmm, you've probably seen this already, but FamilySearch Record Search's pilot site has a baptism for a Martha Gowing ("gender male", lol) 6 Nov 1805 Stowmarket, parents Timothy Gowing and Elizabeth Buxton, and there is a marriage for Timothy Gowen and Elizabeth Buxton 27 Oct 1805, it only says Suffolk for that though.

Thanks Kate,

That marriage took place at Shelland & that Timothy says he's single but that wouldn't necessarily discount him as mine judging by my Timothy's behaviour; leaving both wives & children in the workhouse on numerous occasions, deserting from the navy, ending up in Norwich & Beccles Gaols - what's a little lie about status eh?

Also my Timothy & Elizabeth did name their first daughter Martha. However, the Workhouse records show that Elizabeth was removed from Norwich in a state of pregnancy in Sep 1807 and when the family was admitted to the workhouse in May 1808, Martha was recorded as 9 mths old.

Thanks for having a look though.

Are you sure that it's not the same couple having two Marthas, with the first one dying in infancy?

No, I can't be sure that it's not but Shelland & Stowmarket are quite a way from Bungay & they have only been sighted in Bungay, Beccles & Norwich. However I checked my notes & don't seem to have any for 1805 so I had better go back to the 'Minute Books' to check.

After much deliberation I decided to accept Elizabeth BUXTON although there are inconsistencies.

I first found this marriage in 2002 but as Timothy declared himself single I discounted it although by that time I did know he wasn't exactly an upright citizen.

Now after trawling through at least half the parishes in Suffolk I'm more inclined to accept it.

Timothy GOWEN m. Elizabeth BUXTON 27 Oct 1805 Shelland
Martha GOWING d. Timothy/Elizabeth (BUXTON) bap. 6 Nov 1805 Stowmarket
Martha GOWING d. Timothy bur. 12 Dec 1805 Stowmarket.


Entry from Shipmeadow Minute Books
30 Oct 1805 Timothy GOWING aged 12 (son by 1st wife) be admitted to be maintained in the House, his father being ran away & he having no person to maintain him.

Fits nicely with the info. above.

Only fly in the ointment
12 Jun 1805 Timothy GOWING's wife to be received into the House when brought.
She would have been 4 months pregnant so I suppose they had to lie or she wouldn't have been accepted. Of course Timothy's father was also Timothy & his wife was alive but the older couple tended to receive out relief when they were older.
