Debnam Brickwall -----HELP!!!!
Posted by: Janet Maloy (ID *****4995) Date: October 28, 2008 at 06:43:33

Debnam experts please help.....My brickwall is I have a Isaac Debnam who married a Emma Hemsley Buller 02 Jan 1840 St. Dunstan, Stepney, Middlesex County, England. Emma was born 21 Jul 1800 or 1805?, Southwark, London, England. I have a copy of the marriage and it shows Isaac's father as John Debnam, deceased. Emma has two children & no husband 1851 England Census, Middlesex,St George Botolph Lane, District 7. The children in 1851 are Elizabeth 22 and Isaac 14 which to me means that she is their stepmother. I have those who are telling me that she is the natural mother and the parents didn't marry until 1840. I don't buy this as it was a terrible disgrace. This Isaac also had 4 Isaac decendants that are accounted for. My g grandmother Emma Hemsley Debnam was a granddaughter to this Isaac and I assume named after the stepmother unless maybe she was the original wife's sister, cousin since this was often the case. I REALLY could use some help finding out who was Isaac Sr's first wife. I don't have access to parrish records in England at this time.
1. Isaac Debnam abt 1795 Married ? & Emma Hemsley Buller
2. Isaac Debnam, b 18 Feb 1837 Shoreditch, East London, England married Ellen Cox
Any information about the the original Isaac and/or his father or anyone else would have my undying gratitude.
Thanks
Janet
