Claydon

I have only identified two generations of Claydons so far, my great grandmother Caroline Claydon (1861-1949) and her father James Claydon (c1821-1904).

Both were born and lived in Essex, in the areas of Rayne, Felsted, Braintree and Chelmsford.

I am stuck at James Claydon, with no clues to either of his parents’ names as:

  1. he did not name a father on his marriage certificate
  2. he was born before Civil Registration started in 1837 (so no birth certificate with mother & father’s names)
  3. he married in 1850, so I have no information on his birth family from the 1851 Census
  4. I cannot reliably identify him in the 1841 Census or online parish records

I plan to work on his parentage when I eventually visit the Essex Record Office.

With such a short family line, I’ve decided to present all the information I do have as a report, to make the most of the facts I do have 😉
