Keziah Anderson?

Kezia Anderson?

One of the children of Mary Hannah (Ann) Goves and her second husband Edward Kirby was named Kezia Anderson. In this section we will investigate who she was and how she was important to the parents of that child. For the Kirby Family of Mary Ann (Hannah) Goves, press HERE. .

For that we will first investigate her father's family. Keziah Anderson was born Keziah Bowles. Her father Robert Bowles was a Baptist Minister.

The Family of Robert Bowles through the Censuses

At the Census of 1841, Robert Bowles was living with his parents. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.) We find:

  1. William Bowles, 50 years old and so born around 1791, a dyer;
  2. Kezia Bowles, 52 years old and so born around 1789;
  3. James Bowles, 20 years of age and so born around 1821;
  4. Robert Bowles, 16 years old and so born around 1825;
  5. Josiah Bowles, 14 years old and so born around 1827;
  6. Jane Bowles, 13 years old and so born around 1828;
  7. Gordon Sinclair, 31(?) years of age and so born around 1810, clerk.
From this we can tell that they must have married probably in the London area and between 1810 and 1820; the first limit would make the groom 21 years of age; the second would assume that the eldest son at home in 1841 was the oldest in their marriage. In fact, it turns out that a William Bowles married Kezia Cole on 14th March 1810 in London and we know that the wife christian name is indeed Kezia by the same Census.

At the Census of 1851, Robert Bowles was married and 25 years of age. He was a stationer. His wife Amelia Bowles is 24 years of age and Robert Boles his son is 3 months old. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

At the Census of 1861, Robert Bowles was married and 37 years of age. His wife Amelia Bowles was 36 years of age. (It seems that she was born Amelia White.) They had four children, a son, William Bowles, 8 years old, and three daughters, Amelia Bowles, 6 years of age, Keziah Bowles, 4 years old, and Rhoda Bowles, 1 year old. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

At the Census of 1871, Robert Bowles was married and 46 years of age. His wife Amelia Bowles was 45 years of age. They had three children at home, Amelia Bowles, 16 years of age, going to school; Rhoda Bowles, 11 year old, going to school; and Robert Bowles, 9 years old, going to school. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

Both William Bowles, who would be around 18 years of age, and Kezia Bowles, who would be around 14 years of age, were not living with their parents.

Kezia Bowles is living with a draper, Martha Austin, a widow of 68 years of age, living on West Street, Brickendon, Hertfordshire. She is a Draper's Assistant, 14 years of age. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

She married James Samuel Anderson in July 1880 in Hertford. He was born in 1838. He died at 49 years of age in the district of Mile End Old Town, London, in the second quarter of 1887. During their rather short marriage, they had two children:

  1. William Albert Anderson was born in the first quarter of 1883 in the registration district of Hackney.
  2. Elenor Constance Anderson was born in the 3rd quarter of 1885 in the registration district of Hackney.

At the Census of 1881, Robert Bowles was married and 56 years of age. His wife Amelia Bowles was 55 years of age. They had two children at home, Rhoda Bowles, 21 year old; and Robert Bowles, 19 years old, printer and compositor. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

At the Census of 1891, Robert Bowles was married and 66 years of age. His wife Amelia Bowles was 65 years of age. They had one child at home, Kezia Anderson, 34 year old and a widow; and two grand-children: William Albert Anderson, 8 years old, Elenor Constance Anderson, 5 years old. The grand-children were born in London, Stoke Newington. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

At the Census of 1901, Robert Bowles was a widower, 76 years of age, and a retired Baptist Minister. He had one child at home, Kezia Anderson, 44 year old and a widow; and one grand-child, Elenor Constance Anderson, 15 years old as well as one boarder, Thomas J. Briggs, 22 years of age and a grocer's assistant. It is said that he was born in London Stoke Newington. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

At the Census of 1911, Kezia Anderson, 53 year old and a widow is a companion to Martha Mills, 73 years old and also a widow. They live at 109 Bouverie Road at Stoke Newington. It is stated that Kezia Anderson had three children, all alive. (A Copy of this Act is found further down.)

His father's christina name was William and his mother's, Sarah Jemima was the oldest of the three beautiful daughters of Job, named in the Bible as given to him in the later part of his life, after God made Job prosperous again. Jemima's sisters are named as Keziah and Keren-Happuch. Job's sons, in contrast, are not named. Triphena:vulnerable, soft Trifosa: "She who delights in God": from Old Greek! total and utter nonsense!
