I learnt of some interesting info on my side as you may remember that i have a Hannah Poulter from Camb. I never found her birth which would have been around 1857, well i found the following.
I have varies spellings of the same family starts with PETTIT & that is a marriage but the grome signs PETTETIT then it has been put down on census as PETTETT or PETTTITT
All come from Cambridgeshire around Kirtling & Wood Ditton but to make things even more complicated some have gone to the name POULTER.
It seems my Gt Grandmother was a Pettit but went under the name poulter her mother is the one who married a Pettit & at first i thought he died & she married a Poulter but later he in the census he using that name then Poulter later so may be changed due to a clause in a Will or something.
My Gt Nan was Hannah born 1857 (daug of Julia Jane Stigwood) she had quite a few brothers which i just learning about there was a James b abt 1845 a Thomas b abt 1856 & a Samuel Pettit Poulter b abt 1867 a butcher in Kirtling also William b 1851
At the present I am not sure if the two Johns are one of the same as why would the 2nd husband use the 1st husbands name also was the name Poulter John's Mother's maiden name i know that the name Poulter carried on until at least 1900's with Samuel's marriage & birth of at least one child any thoughts or if this rings any bells i appreciate you letting me know also if you wish to pass on any of this info feel free to do so
