There is also the possibility of these being cousins. I have found the same
naming sequences flowing through different lines from a common ancestor.
IE. First Son William, Second Son John.... Maybe these two families were
close and they named their children the same.
An example I have come across is as follows:
1828 George Smith Son of William Smith and his wife Ann
1830 George Smith Son of David Smith and his wife Martha
William and David are brothers. Other names they both frequently used were
William, Susannah, Esther and Job.
In this light there would be cousins who had the same names for their
siblings with a chance that they would have been born in the same time
And looking at the 1881 census it seems that the following aer likely to be
Robert b1840 Elmstead, Alfred G b1843 Elmstead, James b1847 Elmstead
The name George pops up in all families so may pinpoint a common ancestor
I would check the Elmstead Parish Register and confirm the parentage of
these people. Based on the dates and place I would assume that they were
from the same family especially seeing that Elmstead is a small village just
outside of Colchester.

I'm very new to the 'list' so I hope I'm doing this properly.....
My grandfather, Albert Arthur Studd came to Canada in 1910. All I know
about him and his family in England is that he was born in Ardleigh January
22, 1889; he had two sisters, Alice and Olive; his mother was a tailor; and
his brother or cousin, Ernest, also came to Canada. Alice married someone
named Charlie - possibly with a last name of Apps. Their home was called
To complicate this story, my family was contacted by a gentleman from
England who's paternal grandfather had the same name as my paternal
grandfather and who had married his grandmother just prior to leaving for
Canada. This Albert Arthur had a brother Ernest Frederick who came to
Canada with Albert.
I'm either dealing with one heck of a coincidence or, at worst, an illegal
marriage on this side of the Atlantic. According to the 1881 Census, there
were two families with a son named Ernest who was three years old at the
time. One of these families also had a daughter named Alice. Perhaps these
two families also both produced an Albert Arthur some time afterwards.
Is there anyone on the list that could shed some light on this for me?
Perhaps check out the listings for Studd in the Colchester area on the 1891
I would be eternally grateful.
