Hello All,  For a few years now I have been researching my fathers family tree Deakins, although I know they went as Deakin also. My maiden name was Dawn Deakins. I have found a small amount but was wondering if anyone knew anymore. In the 1891 census my Great grandfather James Deakin lived in Pipe Aston in the sub registration district of Leintwardine, my grandfather was 6 at this time and his mother Caroline Edwards had already died in Ludlow. On James marriage certificate it states his father as William Deakins, a farm servant. My grandfather fought in WW1 along with his half brother John who was killed in France & Flanders on 22nd Oct 1917, his body never recovered. If anyone has any information on this family it would be great to hear from you.  ManyThanks, Dawn

Hello Dawn

You say that your great grandmother Caroline DEAKIN (nee EDWARDS) had died in Ludlow.  I presume you are referring to Caroline Ann DEAKIN age 25 whose death was registered in the Ludlow Registration District Q4 (Oct, Nov, Dec) 1889 but did not necessarily die at Ludlow.

Looking at the Llanfair Waterdine burial register in the Shropshire Burials on the Find my Past web site (fee payable) it shows that Caroline Ann DEAKIN age 25 of Pipe Aston nr. Leintwardine was buried on 8th Dec 1889.  I can't see any record of a grave stone for her.

Hi Mike, yes that is her. I will have to get a death certificate to find cause of death, I think it may have been childbirth. I know her husband, my great grandfather re-married and his fathers name was William Deakin and Carolines father was James Edwards. So many Deakin(s) in the Ludlow/Herefordshire area but so little information at hand.

Thank you for your help.

Regards, Dawn
