Hello Mike. We are indeed DEEMING neighbors in Coventry--at least for a time. Your Mary Ann DEEMING<1835>, baptized in Foleshill, and her father, Samuel DEEMING<1808> and mother, Martha TURNER<1811>(M. October 4, 1830, Foleshill, St. Lawrence), along with two other children, her brother, James DEEMING<1834>, Age 17, and sister, Sarah DEEMING<1839>, Age 12, appear to be all living on Swanswell St., Coventry (Hillfields), for the 1851 Census (PRO Reference HO/107/2068, Folio 297, Page 3, FHL Film 0087332). My Coventry DEEMING relatives are not too far away in 1851--on Albert St., Hillfields, and Craven St., Chapel Fields--as both Watchmakers and Publicans. The 1851 Census information further states Samuel DEEMING<1808>, Age 43, as a Policeman born in Foleshill, and Martha DEEMING<1811>, Age 40, as a Weaver born in Allesley, Warwickshire. Both James, a Tin Plate Worker, and Mary Ann, a Weaver, were born in Foleshill, but Sarah DEEMING, a Weaver, Age 12, was born in Coventry--suggesting that the family may have been residing in Coventry since at least 1839 at the time of Sarah's birth. It is most interesting that your Mary Ann DEEMING married Joseph Randle at Nuneaton (north of Coventry)in 1860, and then they moved even farther north to Chesterfield in Derbyshire--confirming again that all the movement was not just from North to South--some DEEMINGs did migrate South to North as well--as did some of my Deeming relatives in coming back North to Coventry after residing in London. Do you suppose there was something special about a Christmas marriage last century? Perhaps! As you have mentioned, it would be most interesting to know why these end of the year dates were favored. Best Wishes, Marguerite Verley
