The Haskins Line – Upper

This page is the tree of a family of Haskins that was centred during the early-to-mid 20th century on Portsmouth U.K., and which is traceable back to William Haskyns b. 1706, and resident south of Bristol.

            By 1832, they had moved to Willborough Terrace, Olveston Gloucestershire (north of Bristol, now just on the northern side of M4 junction 21). Their 6 children were born there.
            In the 1851 Census: page 1, page 2, they are in Tockington Rd with their 2nd to 5th children.
            In the 1861 Census, he is shown, in Tockington Rd Olveston, as an Ag. Labourer, age 60, with Mary (53), Henry (30), John (23), Joseph (20) and Mary Ann Young ("adopted Child", 5), plus 3 Lodgers
            On Joseph's marriage cert. in 1863, he is shown as Labourer.
            Did they later move to The Green in Olveston with their 4th son John?
            In the 1871 Census, Mary is a widow, living at 20 Tockington with her son John, recently a widower, with children 1 and 3, and 2 servants (!)
            In the 1881 Census, Mary was at 11 Tockington, with her unmarried General Labourer son Henry (50) and 3 lodgers
            1. Edwin HASKINS (1827-1883)
              b. 1927, Chew Stoke
              In the 1851 Census, not with his parents at Tockington Rd.
              In the 1861 Census, not with his parents at Tockington Rd.

              • Henry Haskins b.c.1860
                m. Annie Gatter
                • Sidney Gatter Haskins b. 27 Dec 1893, Bristol
                  m. Dorothy North, 1934
            2. Henry HASKINS b. 1830 b. Norton St Philips, d. 1898
              In the 1851 Census, at 21, with his parents at Tockington Rd, Labourer.
              In the 1861 Census, at 30, with his parents at Tockington Rd, Ag Labourer.
              Never married, stayed at 11 Tockington Rd Olveston
              In the 1871 Census, at 40, living alone in Tockington Rd
              After 1881, Mary Anne Young b.1856, who had been adopted by William and Mary, became his housekeeper.
              In the 1891 Census, at 60, living alone in Tockington Rd.
            3. William HASKINS 1832-?
              In the 1851 Census, at 18, with his parents at Tockington Rd, apprenticed to a blacksmith.
              In the 1861 Census, at 28, not with his parents at Tockington Rd.
              Possibly m. Mary ? c. 1860? A Mary Haskins d. 16 May 1870 aged 32 (HFB), hence b. 1837/38. (There are few other relationships that Mary could have had that would have warranted an entry in Joseph Haskins' Family Bible).
              In the 1901 Census, William is 69, and a Gardener employed by his younger brother John at The Green.
              It's unclear where he's been for 50 years, and there's no sign of him having been married (apart from the above inference from the HFB) or had children.
            4. John HASKINS b. 1837, Olveston, d. 1917
              SEE THE SUBSTANTIAL JOHN HASKINS' LINE (which is extant in the Tockington area)

              SEE THE SUBSTANTIAL JOSEPH HASKINS' LINE (which is Anne's and my line, and is mainly Hampshire-based)
            6. Clara HASKINS b. 1843, d. Mar qtr 1844 (Thornbury 11 412)
            7. Mary Ann Young, b. Dec qtr 1855 SW Bristol (Bedminster 2c 656), adopted. In the 1861 Census, at 5, she is with her adoptive parents at Tockington Rd. In the 1881 Census (page 1, page 2), age 25, she is a servant at Ashton Vicarage, back in Bedminster. After 1881, she became housekeeper for Henry, the adopted brother 25 years her senior. But by 1891 she is no longer with him.
              Her death is the final entry in the Haskins Family Bible (strongly implying that the family continued to regard her as a family-member), but with no date of death was filled in.

The core of the information on this page was put together during the last third of the 21st century by (Peter) Cecil Haskins b. 1925, resident successively in Portsmouth, then wherever the Marines, music, Jean and bridge took him, including Herts, Lincolnshire, Kent, and later Cape Town ZA.

Peter provided the information to me in Canberra (on two hand-written scrolls) when he visited us in the early 1990s. I'm a 9th generation decendant of William Haskyns, so I captured the data into this form in 2006-07.

It has been subsequently enhanced based on Anne Kratzmann's family history research, particularly in the Census returns of 1841-1891. Further data about Edwin was provided by Sarah E. North in August 2015.
