Postby Mei » Sun Jan 22, 2012 5:36 pm

Hello,

I am seeking information regarding the late Alice Augusta Hughes of Long Bay Anguilla, and relatives. Her late husband was named Hezekiah Richardson of West End.

She also had a sister name Margreth (nickname Mug) that I met when she was 107 years old at the old age home.

I would also like to hear from anyone or relatives, I am the great grand daughter of Alice and Hezekiah.

Thanking everyone in advance,

Mei

Hi Badminton,
I appreciate your information very much I am sorry that I do not know the names of Alice or Hezekiah's parents.
However I am a bit confused by the names of their children while some names I know their are many others that I have never heard of until now. What is missing is the name and birth of my grandmother, her name was Maud Elezie Richardson born August 31, 1900; her first child was born 16 March 1920. As a young person I stayed with my great-grandmother in her little house in West End, and I never heard her mention some of the names that I am seeing, anyone having clarity regarding the information that was provided please share as we the great-grand children are seeking our roots.
Thanks,

Badminton thank you very very much for sharing your information.

All the records I gave in my previous mailing are from the Anguilla Civil Marriage/Death/Birth Records.
You can apply to the Court House, Anguilla, for copies of birth and other certificates.

Descendants of Thomas James Reed

1 Thomas James Reed b: Bef. 1898 of The Valley, Anguilla. Labourer.
. +Maude E Richardson b: Bef. 1898 of The Valley, Anguilla. Labourer. m: October 15, 1919 in Civil Marriages Anguilla. Full age. Bachelor/spinster. Witnesses: October 15, 1919 William Alex Gumbs, Reginald Hodge.
===

There is no Maud Elezie Richardson in the Anguilla Civil Birth Records. There are no Methodist Records for that d.o.b. as all were lost in a fire up to c1910.
I have looked for someone with a similar name but there is no-one shown born on the day you give. Nor is there any child born on the 16 March 1920.
Are we talking of birth in Anguilla?
Can you give me the name of her child and that of Maud's partner/husband.
It just shows that not all children were registered, however, the child is possibly not registered as Richardson and the names were often changed at baptism; the day given for birth could be out by a few days as the person who registered it was often a young school child.

Descendants of Maud Richardson

1 Maud Richardson b: Bef. 1918 of West End, Road Division, Anguilla. Black. d: Aft. March 6, 1936
....... 2 Boy Richardson b: March 4, 1936 of West End, Road Division, Anguilla. Black. d: March 6, 1936 of West End, Road Division, Anguilla. Black. Aged 2 days of malnutrition.

............ +Lucinda Agatha Brooks b: Bef. 1941 of Sint Maarten. d: Aft. June 24, 1959 States mother a widow, father dead.
................... 3 Stillborn Richardson b: June 24, 1959 Sint Maarten, Dutch Antilles. d: June 24, 1959 Sint Maarten, Dutch Antilles.

If you can get hold of death certificates for the members of your family like Hezekiah, Harmond and their wives, they should show their ages. I can then look back into my database and see if there are any possible connections.

By the way, I have Harmond as Hammond!

Hi Badminton,

I have the death certificates for Hezekiah and Alice, I will have to check with another family member regarding Sarah and Harmond.

Regarding Harmond, Hammond you might be right about the correct spelling of his name as I dont have any documentation regarding him. I do know that he was the brother of Hezekiah and Nathan, they also had a sister named Albertha all Richardson.

Alice Augusta Richardson nee Hughes death was registered on October 27th, 1968 === Hezekiah's death was registered on May 17th ,1950.

Badminton, what is the meaning of the term coloured?

Guess by "coloured" those old records mean of mixed race as many other records state "black".
However, prior to c1920 people from countries such as Portugal (or with Portuguese blood) were termed "of colour" too.

Out of interest, did the death certificates for Hezekiah and Alice not give their ages at death? This would then confirm the ages they gave when they were married.

Reason this could help is that it can help pinpoint children who changed their names once the father acknowledged the child was his. At baptism often only the mother's surname was used.

I transcribed Hammond and not Harmond but even if I were accurate, doesn't mean the person who wrote the record got the name right!

Thanks to your info we now know Hezekiah and Hammond are brothers.
Nathan - if you have a year of birth or if he used a second Christian name, would be helpful.
There is a Nathaniel Richardson of Long Grund, black labourer who had children with Eve Constantia Gumbs, black labourer, both of Long Ground, Anguilla.

Children are:
....... 2 Rudolph Alphonse Gumbs b: October 17, 1910 of Long Ground, Anguilla. Black. Baptism: December 23, 1910 Anglican Church Anguilla. No. 80.
....... 2 Adella Bettina Gumbs Richardson b: June 17, 1912 of Long Ground, Anguilla. Torn. Baptism: Bet. September 11 - 13, 1912 Anglican Church Anguilla. No. 90. Torn.
....... 2 Blanche Lucile Richardson b: March 25, 1915 of Long Ground, Anguilla. Labourer. Black. Baptism: July 7, 1915 Anglican Church Anguilla. No. 60. St. Marys.
========

There's an Albertha R'son, partner Hershall Ruan with son, Charles.

Alberta R'son of West End, with children
....... 2 Nigel McAuley Richardson b: April 24, 1917 of West End, Road Division, Anguilla. Black.

Hi Badminton,

With regards to Hezekiah and Alice age at death this is what was recorded.

Alice Augusta was 99 years when she died in 1968, Hezekiah was 77 when he died in 1950. Alice and Hezekiah's marriage was witnessed by her uncle and Hezekia's cousins - is what I was told.

I do not know much about Albertha, but her great and grand children are still residing on Anguilla.

Regarding Hammond I will try and obtain more information regarding him from a cousin on St. Martin, whereby I think she once mentioned the names of Sarah's parents, I will check with her to see what info she can provide.

I have always heard that we are related to the Flemings but I never knew how, this information will help me to clarify it with some of the Fleming descendants who live on St. Maarten.

I was always told that Hezekiah only had children with his wife Alice, no outside children. Hammond had two outside of wedlock.
