My «Lost and Found» service is to help you find
any of those elusive LAWFORD ancestors. Perhaps even
one you have given up all hope of ever finding. You can also
send me any photos you may have of unknown LAWFORD
family members for identification. Then with a bit of luck
someone who visits this site will come up with the answer
you have been looking for. I will then have the nice job of
telling you the happy news and then putting the answer on
the net for others to see. All you need to do is let me have
an outline of what you already know about the ancestor you
want to be reunited with. I would be grateful though, if you
could write your information exactly how you want it to
appear on the net. (e-mail).
- Their interest is in a marriage which could have
taken place in Essex (probably around the Colchester
area) or London between an Ann Angelina EVERITT
and a ???? LAWFORD. She was born June 1856
and living in Copford during the 1861 Census. We know she
went to London and then subsequently married ????
LAWFORD who came from Copford. They probably
married between 1874 and 1881.
- I am interested in the name
LAWFORD because a forebear of mine Sarah Lawford
Chestle JEFFERY had that as one of her
- She was my Great Great
Grandfathers step sister. She was born on the Isle of
Wight Feb 16th 1806, and baptised at Newport I.O.W. on
March 19th 1806. She was the only child of James
JEFFERY 1757 - 1815 and his 2nd wife Elizabeth
PEDDER, who had also been married before.
Elizabeths maiden name was CHESTLE, so we
know where the CHESTLE came from, but not the
LAWFORD. I know very little about the
CHESTLES of the I.O.W, and I have never come
across the LAWFORD name on the I.O.W.
- Sarah Lawford Chestle
JEFFERY was taken to Prince Edward Island, Canada
as a child in 1809/10. Her father James JEFFERY
returned to the I.O.W. in 1812, but Sarah remained with
her step sister in P.E.I. until she eloped at the age of
18 and got married. The step sister married into the
COMPTON family of Amport, near Andover. Her name
was Hannah, and two of her brothers , Stephen and George
also emigrated to P.E.I. Sarah Lawford Chestle
JEFFERY married twice. Her first husband was
murdered. A book on the JEFFERY family give an
account of the court case. There are many descendants of
hers from both husbands in P.E.I. and elsewhere living
today. LAMB and MC.INNIS, and other
- We know that Sarah got the
CHESTLE name from her mothers maiden name, and I
think its most likely she got the LAWFORD name
from someone in the CHESTLE family marrying a
LAWFORD. So my question would be «does anyone
know of a CHESTLE marrying a LAWFORD prior
to 1800 on the Isle of Wight?»

- I have a distant Aunty Edith BEVAN born in Orcop Herefordshire in 1846 and
she married Andrew LAWFORD who was born in 1846 in Hereford city UK.
They had 5 children I know of in the 1881 census for Birmingham but I lost
them after that. Maybe they immigrated to NZ ,Canada or Australia as other
family members appear to have done so,
George born 1868, Andrew born 1871, John 1873, Edith 1878.
