Dear Dr M.L. Ille
I must congratulate you on the I'Anson International site and thank
the contributors who have added to the information.
Francis is listed in the 1881, 1891& 1901 census. I have found my grandfather
in the 1881 census living with his grandfather William I'Anson and in the
1891 census with his father (Gamekeeper) & stepmother at Hall Farm
Francis (Frank) I'Anson & Isabella Horner Peacock are my great
William Thomas I'Anson & Elizabeth Roskell are my grandparents.
William Thomas had a brother John Leonard (born 24 Dec 1874) who was
living with an uncle William & Ellen I'Anson at the Mill West Hauxwell.
in the 1881 census.
I would like to get more information on John Leonard if possible,
he was a witness on my grandfathers marriage certificate 1/8/1901.

On your wonderful I'Anson website is a 2007 letter from Annette I'Anson
Bloomfield. We share the same Great Great Grandmother Amelia
I'Anson in Australia.
I would be most greatful if you could let me know her email address
or pass mine on to her, as I would love to get in touch and share our information.

Very many thanks for the trouble that you have taken to research my
I'Anson ancestry. I have passed several hours studying your findings
and have come to the conclusion that the most likely scenario was as follows:
The big puzzle is where does Louisa Ann Jansen (b 1841) fit in? Possibilities
are that her Father was James' Brother; she was the illegitimate daughter
of James' Sister, or the illegitimate daughter of James himself!
James Loveday l'Anson married Louisa Ann Benning circa 1840.
They had three children: Emily Louisa (b. 1.5.1841); Edwin James Joseph
(b. 10.7.1843); Joseph Charles (b. 28.3.1845)
James' Wife, Louisa died 30.10.1863.
James then married Lydia Townsend (aged 40) in December, 1864.
When James died in 1879, she continued to live in the same house as a lodger
with Henry Jolly as head of household. Quite likely she was more than a
lodger to Henry Jolly!
I much appreciate your help.
