Information on James Bale
Posted by Richard Milton-Worssell on 17/2/2018, 5:26 pm
Looking for information on James Bale (1855 or 1857 to 1885?? Or 1905??) and family
I think James Bale is son of James Bale born 1817 Combe Martin, Devon, and Lucy Bale Born 1824 St Giles, Devon. In 1861 Census his siblings are John Bale aged 12, William Bale aged 9, Isaac Bale aged 4
In the 1881 Census he is Living at North Buckland, Georgeham, Devonshire, England, he is married, the census records James Bale age 27 Birthplace Instow, Devon, England born in 1855 or 1857, Mary Bale Age 30 Birthplace Lewisham, Kent, England. I think I know that Mary Bale (Lanser nee Miller) was a widow in 1875 1st marriage to Adolphus H Lanser born in Prussia, married James Bale 1879 in Q4 Barnstaple two more children are born Dorothy & Brian Bale, to add to the children she already has, one of whom William Lanser, was born in 1871, in Barnstaple, Devonshire.
Question where’s James Bale, in the 1891 & 1901 Census, I know Mary Bale is recorded as a widow/annuitant, she is living with her children so identifiable, but not living in Devon. James Bale seemingly reappears again in the 1901 census, his age and place of birth seemingly correct, he is living in Richmond Surrey not living with Mary. He is not in the 1911 Census.
Question when did James Bale die?
Question are there two James Bale with similar birth dates and locations?
Thank you for any help and suggestions.
