Miscellaneous Tudgay and Tudgey families

As the genealogical records of an ordinary family are patchy at best, some of what follows is my best guess based on recurrence of names and closely matching dates. I have tried to ensure my speculations are indicated, such as by ? preceding a name.

It seems that all derive from the families of Longbridge Deverill, Wiltshire Map of the Somerset/Wiltshire homeland of the Tudgay families

Early records from Frome, Somerset

"Some believe that the name of Frome derived from the Celtic word, ffraw, meaning fair or brisk. In 685 AD a group of monks led by a man known as the Abbot of Malmesbury and Bishop of Serbourne ( one in the same person ) built a wooden church dedicated to John the Baptist. In 690 AD this church had developed into a monastery and served as the foundation for the city of Frome. In 1086 AD entries made in the Doomsday Book by the Norman assessors noted that Frome had a thriving town, a weekly market, three mills and the hunting forest of Selwood ( reserved for the king who owned the manor ). Frome ( or Frome Selwood ) is in the east of Somerset and west of Wiltshire and nestles in the foothills of the Mendips. The terrain is ideal for the raising of sheep and the woolen industry grew and prospered on the basis of this during the 17th and 18th centuries. By 1823 Frome was suffering from the results of mill automation and lost trade to Bradford in Yorkshire. Diversification was the key to survival and over the following centuries Frome developed its reputation as a cloth producing town as well as a collection point for the output of local villages. By 1852, our ancestors, Charles Randell and Emily Hawkins, had moved from nearby Warminster to live in Gentle Street, Frome, and in the same year they were married in Frome Church Selwood. Charles was a Coach painter by trade and Emily worked as a Silk Spinner. Steam power had already been introduced to the mills of Frome in 1811 and the woolen industry continued to hold its own but with a lesser demand for labour. Frome also had a station on the Weymouth branch of the Great Western railway and rail travel was becoming more popular to those unwilling to travel by coach and horse along the unkept highways of Somerset and Wiltshire. The Coaching businesses were becoming far from prosperous and this may have encouraged Charles and Emily's next move when they looked at the promise of more abundant permanent work in London".

* Information from Hilary Gadsby, December 2003. This suggests that there were two families -
one being that of John & Rebecca Tudgey
The other being that of James & Mary Tudgey.
{Broad Chalke to Fritham}

1881 Census - Stoney Road, South Stoneham, Hampshire (now in Swaythling Parish, north Southampton)
(Family of John Tudgey, b 1838, Bramshaw, Hants, a carpenter, and Sarah Tudgey
Alice Tudgey, b 1863, West End, Hants, daughter
William Tudgey, b 1865, West End, Hants, son
Rosa Ada Tudgey, b 1872, Sholing, Hants

{Southampton}The 1901 Census has William Tudgey, age 36, with his wife Nora, age 29, both born in Southampton and living in Bitterne, Southampton. William was a Carpenter & Joiner Handyman.

Fritham and Bramshaw are west of Southampton (off the B3708, actually just off a direct road route to Broad Chalk, via Fordingbridge, see map above); West End, Sholing and Bitterne are all now in the eastern suburbs of Southampton; Fareham is east of Southampton.

South Stoneham - Created 1st July 1837. Abolished 1st January 1925 (incorporated into Southampton district). Sub-districts : Millbrook; St. Mary Extra; South Stoneham. GRO volumes : VII (1837-51); 2c (1852-1924). Bitterne (1837-94), Botley, Burlesdon, Chilworth, Eastleigh, Hamble le Rice, Hedge End, Hound, Itchen, Millbrook, North Stoneham, Portswood (1837-1909), St. Mary Extra, Shirley (1837-1909), Sholling, South Stoneham, West End. Registers now in Southampton district. [From GENUKI - Registration Districts in Hampshire]

In 2002, a Tudgey has a horticultural nursery at Crookham Village, Fleet, Hampshire - link to Tudgey's Nursery.

In June 2003, a new contributor, Hilary Gadsby, related to this family has emailed the Tudgay Mailing list -

My interest in Wiltshire and Tudgey is my grandparents Alfred Wiltshire/ear who married Sarah Alice Tudgey on 16th August 1884 in South Stoneham Registry Office. They were both born in West End his father was George and her father was John Tudgey whose birth in Bramshaw/ Fritham I have been unable to confirm. He was born about the time GRO registration started but I cannot find his birth. When I next get to Hampshire I hope to check for a christening at the record office but being so close to the Wiltshire border he could have been christened in Wiltshire. I have also been unable to find him on the 1851 census for Bramshaw although his parents could be living elsewhere by then. Hilary Gadsby. North Wales born Southampton.
I have the 1881 census information already and am about to send for a birth certificate for my grandmother Sarah Alice in hope of tracing the maiden name of her mother. The exact place of birth for John Tudgey is uncertain as the 1881 census gives his place of birth as Bramshaw whilst 1871 gives Fritham which is near Bramshaw. Sarah, wife of John was born South Stoneham so they probably married in South Stoneham somewhere. I suspect that there is a connection to Zillah's ancestors in Wiltshire particularly given the proximity of Bramshaw to the county boundary. I have information about John Tudgey's other children William and Rosa Ada and also their children so I would be delighted if I can get past John or even find any siblings of John. They seem to have moved a lot as they lived in Alma (now Almatade) Road in Bitterne in 1871 and Rosa Ada was born in Sholing. In 1891 neither of the girls were living with their parents I know that Sarah Alice had married and Rosa Ada married Charles? Gurman as I knew their daughter. William married and had a daughter Kathleen. The 1891 census for Hampshire also has some Tudgay's born in Wiltshire/Dorset but none born in Hampshire and I have been unable to trace anyone else born in Hampshire.
Next - 12 July 2003
I have within the last 2 days found out several interesting facts about my ancestor which may help place him in the tree which Brian has on his website. His wife's maiden name was OTHEN and on the 1861 census he was living with his father in law at Elver Fir Cottage, Shamblehurst, South Stoneham RG9 681 f83 p3 he had a son John Edward Tudgey who was 1 month old on the census and died aged 1yr 8 months on 20th October 1862 and was buried with his grandmother Hannah OTHEN (nee SHOLING) at West End. John married Sarah OTHEN on 7th January 1861 at St Mary's Southampton he was a batchelor, occupation Carpenter of Itchen Ferry which is part of St Mary Extra his father is given as John TUDGEY Gardener and her father Abraham OTHEN was also a gardener. This information was passed on to me by someone researching the OTHEN family and she has also sent me a copy of a transcript of Abraham's will. I will eventually get around to confirming the details myself. All this information from a simple request for help on a mailing list, all thanks to the information on Sarah Alice TUDGEY's copy birth certificate, she was actually born in Thornhill as was John Edward not West End as stated on the 1881 census. If anyone might have a link to John TUDGEY Gardener presumably born early 1800's could they please let me know as I have not managed to trace John TUDGEY Carpenter on the GRO indexes or find his christening.

Philip Ross Tudgey - the IGI gives the mother of Philip Ross Tudgy chr 02/08/1863 at Walton on Thames, Surrey as being Mary Ann Emily TUDGY, chr 28/04/1844 at Walton on Thames, Surrey (Emily). Her mother Elizabeth Ann RETFORD married Richard CROCKFORD after the death of Henry TUDGY, Emily's father. Hersham is linked with Walton on Thames, so the fact of being born at Hersham and chr. at Walton on Thames is OK. (from Zillah July 2003, who wonders what happened to Philip Ross Tudg(e)y).

Family of Edward Tudgey (EDT0)
Edward Tudgey, 23, bachelor, a gardener, at Hallow, Worcestershire, (father's name Henry Tudgey a farmer) became the second husband of Elizabeth Wilks (ne Young) on 28/08/1870 at the Chapel of Hallow in the Parish of Grimley cum ? Hallow in the county of Worcester web link to source. After Elizabeth died, her daughter Emily Wilks married her stepfather Edward Tudgey on August 20th 1883 at St Pauls Church, in the Parish of Balsall Heath in the county of Worcester. Edward was 36, a widower, a nurseryman, resident at Balsall Heath at the time of the marriage.

Sometime after the birth of Emily Mary Tudgey, b 01/09/1883, first child of Edward Tudgey and Emily Tudgey (ne Wilks), who was the grandmother of Zillah Williams of Canberra Email, the family moved back to Walton on Thames being there by 1887.

In the 1881 Census the family of Edward Tudgey, gardener and domestic servant, was living at Packington Road, Hallow, Worcestershire.

In the BMD, Hallow is a Civil Parish, within the Martley Registration District, as was from 1837-1974.

The only John Tudgay who might be a candidate for the origin of this John is from Kingston Deverill {short description of image}, but he is recorded as marrying in Kingston Deverill. If, however, that was a first marriage, it seems reasonable for John, Jr., sailmaker, to be his son from the first marriage (i.e born ca 1814)

Transient Gloucestershire records (transient) - Dyrham & Hinton in 1881 and Othery, Somerset in 1901

A list of Gloucestershire names in the 17th and 18th Century, taken from the volumes by Ralph Bigland and his record of names by Graham Thomas. [web link to source] has Tudgey in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire. That was Thomas Tudgey - Link and his son, John, christened there on 13/05/1706 and Samuel christened there in 1729.

In the 1881 Census a single family appeared headed by John Tudgay (john1842dean), living in Dyrham & Hinton, Gloucs; John was recorded as born in Dean, Gloucs, 1841, a dairyman/agricultural labourer; there is no Dean in Gloucestershire, the probable village is on the main Frome road east of Shepton Mallet, in our "homeland area".
The 1901 Census, however, shows this family's stay in Gloucestershire was transient, as they were living in Othery, Somerset. Othery is some 21 miles southwest of Shepton Mallet Map of main Wiltshire/Somerset area. Note that Alfred was born in Dyrham, Gloucestershire.

Family records in Bridgwater Registration District; includes Othery and Chilton Trinity. Sherborne District, 1837-1937, included parts of Dorest and Somerset (Goat Hill and Marston Magna).

Hi Val
There are two TUDGAY's in the book:-

Driver. T4/110349. Army Service Corps
Drowned at sea. 2nd June 1917 age 40
Driver Albert Tudgay was born at Kingston Deverill, Wiltshire, the son of Thomas and Eliza Tudgay, of Kingston Deverill, Wiltshire, and husband of Sarah Ann Tudgay of 48 West Woodlands, Frome. Albert drowned at sea from the Hired Transport Ship 'Cameronian'. For fifteen years previous he worked for a Miss Pickford, of Frome as a carter, and had joined the army early 1915, training for 12 months in Yorkshire, before going out with mule transport to Salonika, where he had been since January 1917. Albert was married for 17 years, and left four sons and a daughter aged between 5 and 16 years old. He is commemorated on the Chatby Memorial, Egypt. His name appears on the Frome War memorial.

TUDGAY Theodore Frank
Private. 28994. 7th Battalion Prince Albert's (Somerset Light Infantry)
Killed in Action 26th March 1918 aged around 23.
Private Theodore Frank Tudgay was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire, and was the son of William and Eliza Tudgay of 7 Hussey's Almshouses, Castle Street, Salisbury, Wiltshire. Theodore was well known in the Frome area, and worked as a gardener for Mr. H.S. Davy, of Somerleaze, Frome, and joined the army three years before he met his death, when he was 20 years old. He went out to France in early 1917, and in July of 1917 was wounded, and spent four months in hospital. He is buried at Foreste Communal Cemetery, Aisne, France. Memorial 23. His name does not appear on the Frome War Memorial.

There are no grave photos for either man, but there is a photo of Theodore Frank Tudgay.
