and Ann BROWN (1762-1845)
were my 4x Great Grandparents. (Click
here to see their place in my pedigree chart.) They married
by banns on Sunday 25 November 1798 in the parish church of St. Mary's in
Reading, Berkshire. Banns of marriage were published in the Beenham,
Berkshire parish register, but no address details for the couple were given.
was baptised on Sunday 26 August 1770 in Beenham,
Berkshire. He was the youngest son and child of
(1737-1805). He was buried on Monday 19 June 1815 in Beenham. He
does not seem to have left a will, maybe this was because his death at the
age of 44 or 45 was sudden and unexpected - both the Reading Records Office
and The National Archives Documents Online have been checked, and nothing
died aged 82 years on Sunday 1 June 1845 and
was buried on Monday 9 June 1845 in Beenham, therefore, she was born about
1763. She was most likely privately baptised in January 1762 , but she
was not received into the parish church of St. Mary's, Reading until 8
October 1773, when she was 11 or close on 12 years old. She was the
daughter of Richard Brown and Elizabeth Orpwood. (Another Ann
Brown was baptised in the parish of St. Giles, Reading in 1770, the
daughter of Thomas Brown and Jane.) A headstone was
found by Ken Pointer and Joan Beasley in the Beenham
churchyard, leaning on the outside of the back church wall. On one
side was recorded Ann's 1845 death and on the other that of Mary Warman aged
21 who died on 8 September 1781.
James Warman and Ann Brown had 2 known children:
baptised on Wednesday 10 November 1802 in Beenham.
She died aged 53 years and was buried on 10 May 1856 in Beenham.
She married John
Holloway on Monday 14 November 1825 in
Beenham. He was born on 28 June and baptised on 13 July 1800
in Bradfield, Berkshire, the son of Thomas Holloway and
Elizabeth Johnson. He may have died aged 76 years in 1877 (first
quarter in the Reading district) and have been buried on 17 January 1877
in Beenham. In 1851 the family were living in Beenham and
John was a Baker and Grocer. The couple had at least 4 children:
Ellen Holloway was born about 1829 in Beenham. (Her age was
recorded as 29 or 22 in the 1851 census.)
Deborah Holloway was born about 1835 in Beenham.
Esther Holloway was born about 1839 in Beenham.
Mary Holloway was born about 1840 in Beenham.
