Joseph Edward Tipping (b. 4 May 1856 in Tardebigge, Worcestershire and bap. 22 Jun 1856 in Redditch), son of Henry Tipping and Elizabeth Tarplee (m. 1856 in Alcester), married Grace Hannah Tubbdaughter of Edward Tubb and Sarah Elizabeth Joy - sister of Herbert Joy Tubb and Harriet Mary Tubb and half-sister of Elizabeth Tubb and Susan Alice Tubb - in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, on 22 Nov 1900. Joseph, then 44, was a widower.

In 1861, Joseph (4) son of Henry Tipping (48) Farmer of 148 Acres at Upper Bentley, Bromsgrove; in 1871, at 14, he was a pupil boarder at Birch Abbey Lane Boys School, Alcester, Warwickshire and in 1881, while his father had upgraded to 230 acres at Banks Green Farm, Webheath, Bromsgrove; Joseph (25) was Farm Bailiff at Berrow Green Farm, Martley, Worcestershire.

Joseph's previous marriage, on 20 Oct 1884, at All Saints Church in the parish of Weston-on-Avon, then in Gloucestershire, was to Mary Ellen Wareing (b. 10 Aug 1857 in Fringford, Oxfordshire), with whom he had four children:

Mary Ellen Tipping died, aged 38, on 13 Apr 1896, and was buried on 17 Apr 1896, in Haselor.

Grace Hannah Tipping became step-mother to Joseph's two surviving daughters and the couple went on to add five further children, born in Stratford on Avon: 
  1. Reginald Henry Tipping b. 6 Mar 1901 (Volume 06D Page 691)
  2. Ernest Edward Joy Tipping b. 30 Nov 1902 (Volume 06D Page 703)

Joseph E Tipping died, aged 84, in 1941, in Stratford-on-Avon.

Thus far, I've found no further records for Elise Ellen Tipping, Joseph's eldest daughter from his first marriage after the 1901 census. Winifred Agnes Tipping (20), in 1911, was employed by widow, Mary Louisa flower (47) as a General domestic servant at Woodville, Gordon Road, Camberley, Frimley, Surrey. As yet I can find, neither marriages, nor deaths for either girl.

In 1939, Marjorie Tipping, married, was living with her parents, Henry and Rosina Robinson, at Brook Cottage Barford Hill, Barford, Warwick. Not located Reginald in 1939. Reginald H Tipping died, in Warwickshire, in 1985. Marjorie Tipping died in Nov 1992. 
  2. Ernest E J Tipping married Gladys Maud Dyde (b. 18 May 1908), in Stratford-on-Avon, in 1930. In 1939, listed as Edward E and Gladys M Tipping, were living at 40 Shottery Road, Stratford-Upon-Avon. Gladys M Tipping died in 1989. Ernest Edward J Tipping died, in 2003, at 100.

James Hockley and Elizabeth Wilton

St Mary, Great Dunmow

James Hockley, son of George Hockley and Eliza Crow, married Elizabeth Wilton, daughter of Richard Wilton and Catherine Byatt at St Mary the Virgin, Great Dunmow on 25 Dec 1870. The groom was 20, the bride claimed to be 19, but was 23. :) James' occupation, as well as that of both George and Richard is recorded as Labourer. We know from at least three sources (1841 census, his own marriage in 1843, as well as his death certificate) that Richard Wilton was a harness maker. As Richard had died in 1858, when Elizabeth was only around 11, she either didn't know or had forgotten (and probably couldn't read what was written anyway), so I can see how this error became perpetuated.

James and Elizabeth Hockley set about repopulating Essex:

  1. Alice Catherine Wilton born 12 Feb 1869 in Great Dunmow
  2. George James Hockley born 1871 in Great Dunmow,
    bap. 30 Mar 1884 at St Andrew's Church, Hornchurch
  3. Charles Stephen Hockley born 1874 in Poplar,
    bap. 30 Mar 1884 at St Andrew's Church, Hornchurch
  4. Eliza Ellen Hockley born 15 Apr 1876 in Romford,
    bap. 28 Aug 1881 at St Andrew's Church, Hornchurch.
  5. William Hockley born 1878 (died 1880, aged 1)
  6. John Harry Hockley born 25 Jul 1881,
    bap. 28 Aug 1881 at St Andrew's Church, Hornchurch
  7. Emily Hockley born 1884,
    bap. 30 Mar 1884 at St Andrew's Church, Hornchurch
  8. Frederick Hockley born 1886 (mother's maiden name as Wilson)
  9. Alfred Albert Hockley born 15 Apr 1888
  10. Joseph Hockley born 1892 (died 1892, aged 0)
  11. Florence Hockley born 1894
In 1871, James Hockley (20) Labourer, and Elizabeth Hockley (21 ish) were living on the Braintree Road, Great Dunmow. The two year old Alice, meanwhile, was next-door-but-one with her grandmother, Catherine Eldred.

Certainly in 1874 they were in Poplar where Charles Stephen Hockley was born. Elizabeth's mother, Catherine Eldred, was also living in Poplar around that time.

By 1881, James (29) and Elizabeth (28) were living in South End Road, Hornchurch, with Alice Hockley (14) - now using James' surname? [1] - George Hockley (11), Charles Hockley (9) birthplace given as Bromley - this was Bromley-by-Bow, Poplar - and Eliza E Hockley (4).
[1] Alice being listed with the surname Hockley on this census may NOT mean that she used it normally, nor does it infer that James Hockley is her father. It could just be the enumerator going mad with ditto marks, an assumption, or simply that it wasn't challenged.

In 1891 at 3, Spring Cottages, High Street, Rainham (the census shows that these & White Post Cottages were next to South Hall Farm on the Wennington Road), were James Hockley (39) Agricultural Labourer, Elizabeth (37), George (19), Charles (17), Eliza (15), Harry (9), Emily (7), Frederick (5) and Alfred (3).

In 1901, still at 3, Spring Cottages, James Hockley (48) was Foreman on Farm. With him were wife Elizabeth (44) still getting younger - I make her 54 - Harry Hockley (19) Horseman on Farm, Frederick Hockley (15) Horseman on Farm, Alfred Hockley (13) Attending School and Florence Hockley (6).

In 1911, James Hockley (63) had become the Bailiff on Farm (Farm bailiff) with Elizabeth (56), Frederick (25), Alfred Albert (23) and Florence (17).

Elizabeth Hockley died in 1924. She was 77.

James Hockley died in 1936. He was 87.
