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.

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, consisted of Isaac Phillips (25) Ag Lab, Caroline (25), Henry (8), Isaac (6) and Maria (4). Also living with them were 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 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.
