Thomas James Fudge and Elizabeth Stewart

Thomas James Fudge (25), son of Thomas Fudge and Ann Beedle, married Elizabeth Stewart (21) on 13 Jun 1869 at St Mary's Church, Portsea. As with his sister's marriage the following year, this will have been in the second church on the site. Elizabeth was reputedly from Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland: I give up already on attempting to narrow down the relevant Stewart from there!

Thomas and Elizabeth had eight children:
  1. Mary Stewart Fudge b. 1870 M Qtr in PORTSEA Vol 02B Page 525
  2. Thomas James Fudge b. 1872 J Qtr in PORTSEA Vol 02B Page 448
  3. Charles Stewart Fudge b. 1874 J Qtr in PORTSEA Vol 02B Page 481
  4. Annie Elizabeth Fudge b. 1877 S Qtr in PORTSEA Vol 02B Page 478
  5. James Fraser Fudge b. 1880 M Qtr in PORTSEA Vol 02B Page 557
  6. Catherine Lucy Fudge b. 1882 J Qtr in PORTSEA Vol 02B Page 530
  7. William Fudge b. 1884 J Qtr in PORTSEA ISLAND Vol 02B Page 515
  8. Charlotte Rachel Fudge b. 27 Dec 1887, reg. 1888 M Qtr in PORTSEA ISLAND Vol 02B Page 503
There is evidence of baptisms of the later children at Portsea, St Michael.

In 1871, Thomas Fudge (22) Grocer's Assistant, was living in Landport, Portsea. His wife was listed as Mary S Fudge (22) from Scotland - looks like her given names have been confused with those of their daughter - and Mary Fudge (1).

In 1881, listed as Thomas T Judge (sic) (33) was living at 40, Bridport Street, Portsea with wife Elizabeth (32) from Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland; Mary (11), Thomas (9), Charley (6), Annie (3) and James (1).

In 1891, Thomas J Fudge (48) Wine & Spirit Porter, was living in Northam Street, Portsea with wife Elizabeth Fudge (43), Thomas J Fudge (19) Blacksmith; Charles Fudge (16) Stableman Groom; Annie E Fudge (13) Tailoress; James F Fudge (11) and Catherine S Fudge (9). There is no indication where the two youngest children, William and Charlotte Rachel, were that year.

In 1911, Thomas James Fudge (67) Motorman on Corporation Tramways, was living in North End, Portsmouth, listed as married, but Elizabeth was not in the household (she may have been staying with daughter Annie). Living with him was Charlotte Rachel Fudge (23) Cardboard Box Maker at a Corset Manufacturer.
Portsmouth Corporation Transport was a tram, trolleybus and bus operator formed in 1898, serving the city of Portsmouth, and owned by Portsmouth Corporation. Tram services ended in 1936.

Both Thomas James and Elizabeth Fudge were listed in Portsea in 1921.

Thomas James Fudge died, aged 78, in 1922 D Quarter in PORTSMOUTH Volume 02B Page 507.

An Elizabeth Stewart Fudge is listed in a news article of 1936.

John Gabbdey and Elizabeth Travally

John Gabbdey married Elizabeth Travally, daughter of Winnall Travally and Elizabeth Benbow at the church of St Dunstan and All Saints, Stepney, on 11 Jun 1769. John Gabbdey was born on 20 July 1745 and baptised on 11 Aug 1745 at St Anne's Limehouse, the son of Henry Gabbdey and Ann Stewart. This pair of my 5th great-grandparents married, by licence, and, witnessing the marriage were the bride's father, Winnall Travally and a James Bryant. 

Information suggests that John and Elizabeth had four children: 
  1. William Travally Gabbedy b. 1770 in Limehouse, London
  2. John Benbow Gabbedy b. 1771 in Risby's Rope Walk, Limehouse, London
  3. Thomas Gabbady b. 1773 in Risby's Rope Walk, Limehouse, London
  4. Esther Gabbedy b. 1775 in Limekiln Hill, Limehouse, London
In 1771, John Gabbdey's occupation is listed as Shipwright.

John Gabbdey must have died before 1781, because the widowed Elizabeth Gabbedy remarried, at St George in the East, to Edward Penfold on 7 Aug 1781. Witnesses were R Soper and, again, the bride's father, Winnall Travally.
