4 may have been mis-transcribed on Ancestry & were Pullum but an individual, couple and a family of 4 were correctly transcribed on Ancestry and were not Pullum. A family of 7 later found to be Pullum & later (after 1861 census) added to my tree
|On all but my tree (1) (two of these were added to my tree after research)||6|
| Note (1)
The 5 who were in all other search results but not on my tree were a single family and a previously unknown daughter of a 2nd marriage (her half brother is in an orphanage) and visiting a family friend).
Later her mother Ann was found to one of the others in the results
The family were: Aaron, Head aged 36; Maria, Wife aged 26; Joseph, son aged 6; Hannah, daughter aged 3; John, son aged 6 months
| Note (2)
On my tree and known to be alive in 1851 but not found in the results were3 women born Pullum but now married: Caroline, Charlotte & Harriett.
There was only one other Henry Ebenezer. He was aged 23 and is not on the 1851 census with his parents and is not yet married. So far I have not found him in 1851. As a musician, he may have travelled. He also may have used his stage name Harry Templeton but I have not found him with this name either.
Individuals were included in the analysis unless:
* after examining the original, it was clear the name had been mis-transcribed
* after examining the original and doing further research, it was possible to establish that the name had been mis-recorded in 1851.
15 Individuals were excluded for these reasons.
Additional note (added 01.09.15): Couple 14 born in Ireland
Was found from ONLY ONE source and NOT found on a repeat search later.
The age range was 6 months to 69 years
30 individuals were already on my own tree and two individuals and a family of 7 were added.
These therefore were related to each other and descended from Joseph PULLUM (1757 – 1846) and his wife Marie/Mary Le Franc /Free (1760 – 1843)
(7 households of 4 families and 3 individuals) = 39 (76%)
Additionally There was the family headed by Aaron PULLUM
(1 household of 5) = 5
The remaining 7 included were questionably Pullums (as the original could not be examined).
1 possibly 2 couples and 3 individuals = 7
Place of Birth
The majority (53%) were born in London & Middlesex (the areas in Middlesex are now London) Those in Surrey and Kent are close & half are areas now in London (18%)
This is a total of 71% in the now London area.
All but 3 are from the East of England and 2 of these are from Ireland
(where unclear as transcript only)
Of the ones known to be from the same descendants:
Four were “outliers”, from Sussex, Norfolk and Bristol
Three of these were wives i.e. not born Pullum.
The fourth is the child who was born in Cambridgeshire but her father & half-brother born in London. Her mother was born in the same place as her.
