Default Joseph Roe or Rowe MMMMFF

Name - "official" name and what they were known as – Joseph Ro(w)e

Date and place of birth – About 1769, Houghton, Stockbridge, Hampshire

Names of parents – probably Joseph & Martha (nee unknown) Roe

Date and place of baptism – probably 26 December 1769, Houghton, Stockbridge, Hampshire

Details of each of his or her marriages – to Lucy Tonge, 10 April 1800, at Stockbridge, Hampshire

Occupation(s) – Yeoman (on marriage record)

Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on (if s/he lived in census times!).
Marriage record in 1800 states “of Houghton Drayton”, Hampshire
At least four children baptised in Stockbridge, Hampshire between 1798 & 1810
1851 census - Kings Sombourn, Hampshire, living with daughter Mary Russell & her family


Date, place and cause of death – possibly either 1855 or 1862. I have found two Joseph Roe deaths listed in Stockbridge, either of which could be ‘my’ Joseph, except 1855 would make him 85 and 1862 would make him 92!

Date and place of burial – not found

Details of will / administration of their estate - unknown

I've found him on the 1851 census:

King's Sombourn, Hampshire

Ephram Russell, head, 57, woodman, born Houghton
Mary Russell, wife, 51, born Houghton
George Russell, son, 15, woodman, born Houghton
Rosa Russell, daughter, 12, scholar, born Houghton
William, Russell, son, 10, scholar, born Houghton
Joseph Roe, father-in-law, widowed, 81, retired farmer, born Houghton

King's Sombourn and Houghton are both in the Stockbridge registration district.

Can't see any matches for the 1861 census.

Getting my census dates mixed up! I'd transposed 1851 and 1861 - 1851 conducted on 30 March and 1861 on 7 April.

So the census says that Joseph was born about 1769-70. Of course it could be wrong, but if he is the one baptised in 1761 he would be 38 when he married Lucy, which would be quite old for a first marriage. Does the marriage entry state whether he was a bachelor or a widower, Sue?

The marriage record shows that Joseph Roe was 30 when he marriied.

What's clear is that there is more than one Joseph Roe, yeoman, born about the same time in that area.
