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.

      1. Robert Fuller and Elizabeth Ann Bradley
        1. Robert Fuller and Elizabeth Bass

James William Fuller and Maria Phillips

James William Fuller, son of Robert Fuller and Elizabeth Ann Bradley, married Maria Phillips, daughter of Isaac Phillips and Caroline Elizabeth Taylor on 9 Oct 1859 in Woodford. James' grandparents, Robert Fuller and Elizabeth Bass, had married in the previous, medieval, incarnation of this church, but this time the marriage will have taken place in the building, from 1816, that stands today. Unusual for the wedding to take place in the groom's parish.

James and Maria had nine children, baptised in RainhamSt Helen and St Giles:
  1. William James Fuller born 1860, bap. 6 Sep 1860
  2. Emily Elizabeth Fuller born 1862, bap. 30 Nov 1862
  3. James Fuller born 1864, bap. 27 Nov 1864
  4. George Fuller born 19 Oct 1866, bap. 18 Nov 1866
  5. John Fuller born 1869, bap. 31 Jan 1869
  6. Frederick Fuller born 1871, bap. 4 Jun 1871
  7. Elizabeth Fuller born 1873, bap. 7 Sep 1873
  8. Annie Fuller born 1876, bap. 5 Mar 1876 (died at the age of 9 months and was buried, on 12 Nov 1876, at St Helen and St Giles)
  9. Alfred Robert Fuller born 1880, bap. 8 Aug 1880
[There was a tenth child, Ellen Fuller, born 1867, attributed to this family. However, checking the GRO, the mother's maiden name is listed as WHITTAM. Her baptism, on 8 Dec 1867, which was in Upminster anyway, lists the mother's first name - Eliza. There was a marriage of a James Fuller to an Eliza Witham, in South Weald, in 1855. Most likely, these were the unfortunate Ellen's parents. This child died, aged 1, in 1868 and was buried on 11 Oct 1868 at St Helen and St Giles, Rainham. So she isn't one of ours. Enough others were.]

In 1861, James Fuller (25) Agricultural Labourer, Maria (23) and their 3 month old son, William were listed at Cottage, Rainham, Essex. Hope nobody wanted to find anyone from the vague addresses on some of these censuses!

In 1871, in Back Street, Rainham, we find James Fuller (36) Ag Lab, Maria (34), William (11), Emily (9), James (7), George (5), John (2) and Frederick (0). 

In 1881, address now upgraded to Village Back Street, Rainham, we have James Fuller (46) Ag Lab, Maria (43), sons James (17), George (15), John (13) all Ag Labs, Frederick (10) and Elizabeth (8) were at school and, Alfred (0).

And in the same place in 1891, James Fuller (57) Ag Lab, Maria (53) and just George (24) and Alfred (11) still at home. They've taken in two lodgers instead: Charles Valentine (24) and David Joslin (46), both Ag Labs.

In 1901, James Fuller (66) Farm Labourer, Maria (64) and just Alfred (20) Ag Lab still at home with one boarder, Albert Hardcastle (26) Farm Labourer.

In 1911, their address given as Mitchells Cottages, Rainham, there is James William Fuller (77) no longer working, wife Maria (74). Their boarder, Albert Hardcastle (36), was still in residence and had become a Platelayer on the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway.

James Fuller died, aged 76, in 1911.

Maria Fuller died in 1919, aged 81.

Thomas Phillips and Mary Ann Wright

Thomas Phillips, son of Joseph Phillips and Ann Clarke and elder brother of Isaac Phillips, had married Mary Ann Wright on 23 Apr 1826 at St Margaret's Church, Barking, where his brother married six years later. The census records from 1841 to 1881, show these brothers were living next door to one another. 

Thomas and Mary Ann had six children, all of whom were also baptised at the church of St Helen and St GilesRainham:
  1. Hester Maria Phillips bap. 8 Mar 1829
  2. William Thomas Phillips bap. 21 Aug 1831
  3. Richard Wilkinson Phillips bap. 16 Mar 1834
  4. Angelina Caroline Phillips born 1837, bap. 1 Sep 1837
  5. Ellen Jane Eliza Phillips born 1841, bap. 31 Jan 1841
  6. Joseph Phillips born 1844, bap. 3 Mar 1844
Again, the use of Wilkinson as a second name makes me think this is probably Mary Ann's mother's maiden name. And the fact that they named a son Joseph in 1844, also makes me more convinced that the death of a Joseph Phillips in Orsett in that same year, was indeed Thomas and Isaac's father.

In 1841, in Rainham, living next-door to his brother Isaac, is Thomas Phillips (35) Ag Lab, Mary (35), Hester (12), William (10), Richard (8), Angelina (4) and Ellen (0). Living with them are an Esther Wilkinson (40) who I would guess is a relative of Mary Ann's; Martha Ward (50) and William Marlow (35) Ag Lab.

In 1851, address listed as Upminster Road, Rainham, there are Thomas Phillips (46) Ag Lab, Mary Ann (45), William Thomas (19) Ag Lab, Richard (17) Ag Lab, Angelina (13), Ellen (10) and Joseph (7). They have two lodgers: Edmund Earnel (38) and Hezekiah Dowset (26), both Ag Labs.

In 1861, Thomas Phillips (56) Ag Lab, at Fran House, Cottage, Rainham, with Mary Ann (55) and just Joseph (17) Ag Lab still at home. So a third lodger: James Wood (32), George Whitbread (22) and John Simpson (18), Ag Labs.

In 1871 at Back Street Cottage, Rainham, Thomas Phillips (66) Ag Lab, Mary (65) have Mary Ann Searles (12) and William Searles (10), granddaughter and grandson, living with them. (Angelina had married a George Searls in 1858.)

Then in 1881, at the now infamous Village Back Street, Rainham, Thomas Phillips (75) General Labourer and Mary (74), have their grandson Edward Turben (22) Labourer in Manure Factory, living with them, as well as James Whiting (22) and Alfred Whiting (19), lodgers. (Edward Turben was the son of Ellen Jane Eliza Phillips, who had married Henry Turben in 1858.)

Mary Ann Phillips died, aged 77 and was buried on 30 Mar 1884 in Rainham.

Thomas Phillips died, aged 81, and was buried on 21 Jul 1887.

Isaac Phillips and Caroline Elizabeth Taylor

Isaac Phillips, son of Joseph Phillips and Ann Clarke, married Caroline Elizabeth Taylor on 16 Sep 1832 at St Margaret's Church, Barking. Isaac and Caroline had 12 children. Those baptised were at St Helen and St GilesRainham:
  1. Henry Phillips bap. 29 Sep 1833 
  2. Isaac Phillips bap. 16 Apr 1835 
  3. Maria Phillips born 19 Aug 1837 (unnamed on GRO reg), bap. 17 Sep 1837
  4. James Davis Phillips, born 1841, bap. 26 Jan 1841 (buried 31 Jan 1841)
  5. Alfred Davis Phillips born 1842, bap. 14 Aug 1842 (died in 1842, age 0)
  6. Jacob Phillips born 1844, bap. 26 Mar 1844
  7. Rebecca Phillips born 1846, bap. 13 Aug 1846
  8. Abraham Phillips born 1849, bap. 23 Feb 1849
  9. Anne Phillips born 1851 (no mention beyond GRO reg)
  10. Thomas Phillips born 1854
  11. Hester Phillips born 1857
  12. Alfred Phillips born 1861
The use of Davis as a middle name for both James [iv] and then Alfred [v] leads me to believe that this may have been Caroline's mother's maiden name - it's a convention I've seen used frequently by the Wiltons and the Thompsons too in this period - however, I've been unable to find Caroline's baptism, nor a marriage between a Taylor and a Davis that I could confidently accept. 

In 1841, the family, living in Rainham, consists of Isaac Phillips (25) Ag Lab, Caroline (25), Henry (8), Isaac (6) and Maria (4). Also living with them are Elizabeth Parker (75) and Mary Taylor (60). The 1841 census doesn't give us relationships, but could this latter have been Caroline's mother? 

Rebecca's baptism record in 1846 lists her father's occupation as Shepherd.

In 1851, in the Upminster Road, Rainham, we find Isaac Phillips (38) Shepherd, Caroline Phillips (38) birthplace listed as Woolwich, Kent; with children: Henry (17) Ag Lab, Isaac (15) Ag lab, Maria (13), Jacob (7), Rebecca (5) and Abraham (2). They also had a lodger, Henry Neville (18), also an Ag Lab.

In 1861, with their address listed as Fran House, Cottage, Rainham, there are Isaac Phillips (48) Ag Lab, Caroline (48), Jacob (17) Ag Lab, Rebecca (14), Abraham (12) Ag Lab, Thomas (7) Ag Lab, Esther (sic) (4) and Alfred (0). 

Yes, got 'em working as young as seven!

In 1871, at Back Street Cottage, Rainham (Back Lane/Street becoming part of Upminster Road, these different addresses are probably all the same place), this time are Isaac Phillips (58) Ag Lab, Caroline (58), Thomas (17) Ag Lab, Hester (14) Domestic Servant and Alfred (10) Ag Lab.

Caroline Elizabeth Phillips died, aged 67, and was buried on 31 Oct 1880 in Rainham.

In 1881, still in the Village Back Street, Rainham, Isaac Phillips (68), widower, Ag Lab, is living with his daughter, Esther (sic) (24) as his housekeeper.

But in 1891, Isaac Phillips (76), widower, Field Labourer, is listed as an Inmate at the Workhouse in Romford. He was still resident at the Romford Union House (later Oldchurch Hospital) at the time of his death the following year, 1892, aged 78. He was buried, on 5 Nov 1892, in Rainham.

Joseph Phillips and Ann Clarke

St Mary Magdalene, North Ockendon - East end
cc-by-sa/2.0 - © John Salmon - geograph.org.uk/p/2657540

Joseph Phillips married Ann Clarke at St Mary Magdalene churchNorth Ockendon on 12 Jan 1801, the first ancestors I've found in this branch.

Joseph and Ann had at least five sons:
  1. James Phillips bap. 12 Feb 1804 (buried 21 Nov 1804) both at St. NicholasSouth Ockendon
  2. Thomas Phillips bap. 25 May 1806 at St. NicholasSouth Ockendon
  3. James Phillips bap. 17 Jul 1808 at St. NicholasSouth Ockendon (buried 2 Oct 1814 at St Michael, Aveley)
  4. William Phillips born 25 Dec 1810, bap. 20 Jan 1811 at St Michael's, Aveley. (There is a burial of a William Phillips, aged 31, on 25 Apr 1841 in Rainham that may relate.)
  5. Isaac Phillips bap. 26 Dec 1813 at St Giles & All SaintsOrsett
It's also possible that there was a sixth child, as there's a burial of a Joseph Phillips, aged 5, in Aveley, on 3 Dec 1815 (so also born 1810). However, I haven't been able to find a baptism to confirm he belonged to this family.

There is a death of a Joseph Phillips in 1844, in Orsett, aged 67. 

Haven't been able to find out for certain when Ann died, but there was a burial of an Ann Phillips (37) in Grays Thurrock on 18 Apr 1819. Then in 1841, there is a Joseph Phillips of the right age (65) with a wife Susan (50), Eliza Phillips (20) and Emma Phillips (1) in West Thurrock, Orsett, so perhaps he remarried.
