#44 Caroline WRIGHT

No Story Too Small – Amy Johnson Crow issued a challenge of 52 Ancestors this year.  And so I continue writing up my family history stories.

My three times great grandmother Caroline WRIGHT was born October 30, 1818 at Ipswich, Suffolk and baptized on the 13th December 1818 as the daughter of Charles WRIGHT and Sarah PATTERSON, father a sailor

On December 22, 1836 there is a marriage between Robert MATHAMS widower and Caroline WRIGHT spinster at St Clements, Ipswich.

On March 5, 1837 a daughter Mary Ann MATHAMS is baptised, father is a baker.

On October 29, 1838 a son Alfred MATHAMS is born.

On December 13, 1840 a daughter Elizabeth Ann MATHAMS is born.

The 1841 census shows Caroline MATHAM age 20, with Robert 45, Olive 15, Maryann 4, Alfred 2, Elizabeth 6 months and Rosella WRIGHT a FS.

Baby Elizabeth dies in 1841 and Caroline MATHAMS dies August 2, 1842 and is buried on the 5th of August – only 23 years old.
