Pedigree of the Fullers

Many of us know where we are descended from one of George Fuller and Eliza Ellen Hockley's children, so here is a pedigree, showing just those of their direct ancestors I've been able to identify (each indent is a further generation). Click on the links and individual pages lead to other family members, offspring, siblings, etc., where I've researched them. This is a slower process than you could ever imagine, but at the same time, worth mentioning that pages will and do change when I add more research and link people to their relevant pages.

Robert Fuller and Elizabeth Ann Bradley

St Mary the Virgin, Chigwell

Robert Fuller, eldest son of Robert Fuller and Elizabeth Bass, married Elizabeth Ann Bradley, eldest child, daughter of Henry Bradley and Mary Thompson, on 9 Apr 1832, at the church of St Mary the Virgin, Chigwell. 

Robert and Elizabeth Ann had a dozen children: 
  1. Eliza Fuller born 1832 (only mentioned on 1841 census)
  2. James William Fuller bap. 16 Mar 1834 in Chigwell
  3. Ann Fuller born 1837 (died, aged 10 and buried on 14 Feb 1847)
  4. Emily Fuller bap. 7 Apr 1839 at Woodford, St Mary the Virgin
  5. Samuel Thomas Fuller born 1841, bap. 25 Jul 1841
  6. Elizabeth Ann Fuller born 1843, bap. 8 Oct 1843
  7. William Robert Fuller born 1845, bap. 21 Dec 1845
  8. Robert Fuller bap. 19 Mar 1848 in Chigwell
  9. George Fuller bap. 19 Jan 1851 at Woodford, St Mary the Virgin
  10. Anne Fuller born 1853, bap. (as Annie) on 23 Jan 1853
  11. Jane Ann Fuller born 1855 (died, aged 5, and buried on 11 May 1860)
  12. Mary Ann Fuller bap. 12 Sep 1858
In 1841, living at Woodford Bridge Flant, are Robert Fuller (25) Ag Lab, Elizabeth (25), Eliza (9), James (7), Ann (4) and Emily (2).

In 1851, at Winn Bridge, Woodford, West Ham, we find Robert Fuller (39) Ag Lab, Elizabeth (36), James Fuller (17) Ag Lab, Emma (Emily?) (12), Samuel (9), Elizabeth (7), William (5), Robert (3) and George (0).

The next time we see them is in 1871, in Woodford Bridge, West Ham, with Robert Fuller (59), Elizabeth Ann (56), George (20), Ann (18), Mary Ann (12) and Emily Eliza (2). Although Emily Eliza is listed on that census as a "Daughter" relative to the head of the household, the birth certificate shows that her mother is Annie Fuller, then of Nightingale Place, Wanstead. No father's name is listed, so clearly an illegitimate child, being brought up by the grandparents. 

By 1881, they've moved to 1 Essex Cottages, Maynard RoadWalthamstow. Robert Fuller (70) still an Agricultural Labourer, Elizabeth Fuller (66) Laundress, Mary Ann (22), Ada Fuller (9) Granddaughter (this will be Annie's second illegitimate daughter) and Charles Berwick (23) Boarder. 

Robert Fuller died in 1882, aged 72.

In 1891, widow, Elizabeth Ann Fuller (78) Retired Laundress, is living alone at 13 Brunswick Street, Walthamstow. (Although, separately, there appear to be two other households also living at the same address.)

Elizabeth Ann Fuller died in West Ham in 1898, aged 84.

Henry Bradley and Mary Thompson

Henry Bradley, son of  Thomas Bradley and Sarah Garton, had actually married Mary Chapman, in Chigwell, on 19 May 1810, but that Mary Bradley, aged 22, was buried, also in Chigwell, on 2 Aug 1812. Henry Bradley, widowed, then remarried, again in Chigwell, on 12 Sep 1813 to Mary Thompson

Ah well, at least he wasn't going to get their names confused!

Henry Bradley and Mary Thompson had at least eight children:
  1. Elizabeth Ann Bradley born 29 Oct 1814, bap. 20 Nov 1814 at St Mary the Virgin, Woodford
  2. Sarah Anne Bradley bap. 29 Apr 1816 at St Mary the Virgin, Woodford
  3. Thomas Bradley bap. 22 Jun 1817. A note on this baptism record says, "Whilst St Mary Woodford Was Being Repaired, The Ceremony Of Baptism Was Performed At St Mary Wanstead."
  4. Ann Bradley bap. 20 Sep 1818
  5. Ann Bradley bap. 30 Jan 1820
  6. James Bradley bap. 2 May 1824
  7. Henry Bradley bap. 8 Jan 1826
  8. Eliza Bradley bap. 13 Apr 1828
The baptism records all list Henry's occupation and Labourer and several of them also list the family's residence as Grange Hill, Chigwell, Woodford.

In 1841, address listed as Grange Hill, Chigwell, Epping, are Henry Bradley (50) Ag Lab, Mary (45), James (15), Henry (15) and Elizabeth (14) - Eliza?

The 1851 Census lists Henry Bradley (63) Ag Lab, birthplace Woodford Bridge and Mary Bradley (54) born in Takeley, Essex, living at King William, Chigwell Horse Lane, Epping. I'm sure Chigwell Horse Lane became Chigwell Road/High Road and wonder if the previous name was to distinguish it from other lanes that weren't even fit for horses? All joking aside, meaning the main thoroughfare that passes coaching inns, such as the King's Head will have been.

Mary Bradley died, aged 65, and was buried on 29 Jan 1860 in Chigwell.

Henry Bradley died, aged 74, and was buried on 30 Mar 1862, again in Chigwell.

Thomas Bradley and Sarah Garton

Woodford, Essex
This work is based on data provided through www.VisionofBritain.org.uk and uses historical material
which is copyright of the Great Britain Historical GIS Project and the University of Portsmouth.


Thomas Bradley married Sarah Garton on 6 Jan 1789 in Woodford. The earliest ancestors in this branch, records suggest that Thomas was born in 1766 and that Sarah was born in 1767. There is a Sarah Garton, baptised on 18 Feb 1770, daughter of John and Elizabeth Garton, in Woodford who could relate. 

Thomas and Sarah had at least eight children:
  1. Henry Bradley bap. 1 Nov 1789 in Woodford
  2. Sarah Bradley bap. 22 Apr 1792 in Chigwell
  3. Elizabeth Bradley bap. 19 Oct 1794 in Chigwell
  4. Catherine Bradley bap. 31 Jul 1796 in Chigwell
  5. Elizabeth Bradley bap. 8 Mar 1799 in Chigwell
  6. UNNAMED Bradley bap. 27 Jun 1802 in Chigwell
  7. Mary Bradley bap. 5 Feb 1804 in Chigwell
  8. John Bradley born 15 May 1809, bap. 30 Jul 1809 in Chigwell
The first Elizabeth, born 1794, likely died, hence naming another child Elizabeth in 1799. The 1802 child may well have been baptised posthumously.

Thomas Bradley died, aged 48, and was buried on 20 Feb 1814 in Chigwell.

Sarah Bradley died, aged 79, and was buried on 15 Nov 1846 also in Chigwell.
