There is a possible marriage in 1848 for LOUIS Braham, choice of brides, but Adelaide Jacob looks promising.

I did notice another Louis Braham on the censuses so that could be him.

May or may not be significant?

Marriage
Frances Elizabeth Ann Braham to John James Waldegrave June 1839 Kensington

then

Birth

Frances Waldegrave Braham Sept 1843 Blean 5 36

Family connection, surely?

Eve m 1847

Like others was curious to find out more about Rosa and Lewis.

Lewis 'intermarried' married Adelaide Joseph - possibly a cousin. He divorced her and then married Bessie Champ in 1872. As the marriage to Adelaide was declared defective, he insisted he was a bachelor. He describes himself as a gentleman when he married Bessie. This may explain why he describes himself as single or unmarried in census records. Was Rosa from Lewis's first marraige?

He died in 1883 at 11 Endsleigh Gardens, leaving an estate valued at £63,479. Charles Benjamin Graham - formerly Braham - of 44 Gloucester Gardens, Hyde Park, the son of the other executor.

The records are on Ancestry. Having probs posting links.

Here's the link to Lewis's personal appeal to the Diocese of London to be regarded as single following his divorce from Adelaide, so that he could marry Bessie in church.

He married Adelaide in 1848 and divorced in 1859. That rules out Adelaide as Rosa's mum.

Rosa is 6 months old on the 1851 census, so why couldn't Adelaide be her mother?

Birth registered Oct-Dec 1850 Westminster, name on index is Rosetta Matilda Braham.

I think they probably knew from research that he was her father, it was the apprent assumption that he "had" to be her father as they had the same name, that got me.
I don't understand the reason for divorce, was does it mean by "intermarried"?

Doh - I was looking at the 1861 census, when she was 10. Time to get off the smart phone and on to the lap top.

Me neither; I thought "intermarried" was just another word for "married".
